New: Two Days in July

You know how much I love collaborative projects so here’s yet another talented duo joining forces to challenge themselves and inspire others. Are you familiar with the work of Sarah Ahearn Bellemare (painter) and Kate Stavish (poet) and their new project called Two Days in July? They aren’t saying much about it (which makes me more excited) but tomorrow their ideas will be set free here on their new blog. All I’m hearing is that this is a, “new collaboration of paintings and poems.” I’m super curious to see what they’ve come up with. I’m sure we can expect something great!

Be sure to bookmark this link and visit these ladies tomorrow to see what they have in store! Congrats Sarah and Kate!

What do you think of collaborative projects? Have you ever had an interest in teaming up with a friend? If so, what would you be interested in doing?

    Duly bookmarked looking curiously forwards to where it will lead.
    If teaming up is working on new ideas furnished by the other then yes , in that case I love it. And have done so making very large wraps in colors I would not think of.

    Hi Holly!
    Ur site’s so delightful…I visit it almost everyday! Thank you for ur dedication in sharing design ideas and inspiring ur readers with ur posts :)

    coincidentally im thinking of starting a collaborative project as well. Nothing big – a mini exhibition featuring some of my paintings, and getting a photographer friend of mine to feature some of her work too, both with a common theme. i enjoy working with others…it’s such a breath of fresh air, u get to try new things, n u learn so much from each other.

    looking forward to checking out sarah and kate’s project tmr…well done, s+k!

    I LOVE collaborating with friends especially since a few of my closest friends live 3000 miles away. I have done some blog collaboration in the past – – but would love to do more in the future!

    I keep up with – two photographers, a photograph a day for 365 days.
    I love seeing on how some days the photos are similar. Such as the trees on day 14.
    Day 54 was a good one, too.

    Web collaborations have been pretty popular lately. I am embarking on a collaborative project with a poet/ writer friend (I am a photographer). My images for the project (Breathing In) are posted on and we are planning to publish a book.

    For sure! I live in a small town where there’s not much going on in the young creative kind of scene, so my friend and I collaborate to keep motivated – make clothes/do graphic design and she’s a hairstylist/makeup artist, so we help each other out with competitions/fashion shows and are going to have a show later in the year. It definitely keeps me inspired working with other talented young people!!

    I really like the idea because not only does it keep two people connected, but I believe it invigorates creativity. I was thrilled to stumble upon this collaborative blog and have found it to be one of my favorites.

    I would love to work on a photographic collaboration with someone — I know it’s been done, but I think it would be helpful to have that drive, that goal in mind while working on my photography.
    Hmmm, perhaps I should actually start looking for someone — it would be so fun to work with someone on a project like that… either from Canada or anywhere, really.

    I love this idea. I think it’s really wonderful that Sarah and Kate have made it a priority throughout their entire lives to stay friends and remain close. I admire that because I haven’t had such fortune with girlfriends over the years. I would love to do a collaborative project with a friend, especially to see what creativity we can bring out in each other. I think this is a very down-to-earth idea but very enlightening and hopeful.

    Several years ago, I had a collaborative website (Muse to Muse) with a friend who had moved to Prague. We each posted every day on a different theme for every day of the week. It was our way of keeping in touch and it was magical.
