Fromper Sites!


The Realm of The Enchantress

If you can get through even part of the many imaginative graphics (many free) created in partnership with some of the finest artists on the web, without being inspired to create a new webpage -- you have more willpower than I do!

This warm and welcoming site originally grew out of a chat group, but its celebration of imagination attracted and inspired a growing circle, re-awakening Muses and birthing new ones.

in web design

I keep the awards for RoseWood and PetalPerfect on display for memory's sake. The sites, alas, have died.


Deep Fried BugVision
Agent Moody said in applying, "Thalia, I can't really say I've inspired people to create their own website, I can say that I've maybe inspired my friends to start writing again. Some of the people who have written for my site haven't done any kind of writing in years. I try to encourage as many people as I can that it doesn't have to be a masterpiece, just a piece of themselves. That is what gets the ball rolling." Indeed it does.

Cruising to Stephanie's Pooh Spot
Stephanie has built an extensive set of web-pages for Winnie the Pooh, which would endear her to Thalia's heart all by itself. By including original graphics, games and recipes they become not only creative, but inspire creativity in others. Graphic intensive, they should still load fast enough to keep up with your reading. You will have to have a lot of patience if you visit Stephanie's home page, but after visiting Pooh you may want to; it's fun. As a family member, friend, and counselor, she celebrates life and helps other people celebrate it too.

The Bicycling Guitarist

Chris Watson, The Bicycling Guitarist

I think that the site of a man riding a bicycle while playing a guitar is alone enough to spark anyone's imagination. In many other ways, also, Chris finds enjoyment in his world in creative ways. He also has a webring for people who express themselves in unconventional ways. And he has made his site W3C compliant, fully accessible!

Michael P Thompson
-Artist, Designer, Madman-

Just about says it all, don't you think? :-) One of the definitions of creativity is the ability to make new connections between previously unconnected things. Michael has a creatively designed site in which you can not only browse his images in hierarchical and linear order, but also at random, sparking new connections while you see the world in new ways.

Jiuzhaigou - A Virtual Tour

A beautiful slideshow of a "fairyland" in Sichuan,China. We use creativity not only in what we make but in what we see. A person whose creativity is alive helps bring out the beauty in the world, and in other people. Lee Moh Shan's site not only demonstrates a creative eye, but encourages other people to look for that same beauty.

Create Some
Wacky Faces
with Beary Bipolar

... and explore the rest of Beary's site, too. I can't give you just one link, because like I have at times, Beary sprawls across several servers. :-) What I appreciate most about Beary is that he encourages people with bipolar disorder and other pains in the mental health to use the healing forces of creativity and humor. What his site flunks in design, it makes up for in sheer hear, and the wide numbers of people he has touched.
