Creative Websites

Getting some inspiration to get creative can be as close as your computer. The things you discover online can really spark your imagination.

April Atwater from Sweet Life in the Valley reveals her three picks for creative websites.


There is a new kind of cookbook called a Tastebook. It’s a beautiful hardback cookbook that you create yourself. You can organize, store, and keep all your favorite recipes in your own personal book. It’s really easy to do. It only takes minutes! You design the cover. You add the recipes. You make it your own.
