This weekend I added a few more blogs to my list of "places I will check out on a regular basis." Some are family and friend blogs, filled with stories and pictures of people I hold near and dear to my heart. While they make me happy, the blogs may not be those that one shares with strangers. Instead, I finally rediscovered a few of my "crafty" and comedy blogs and thought that I would share.
http://craftily-ever-after.blogspot.com/ -- This adorable young woman always has such cute ideas. She is, in fact, the one that inspired me to try to Mod Podge something last week. Her current post is about an idea for Valentine's Day. I don't believe in Valentine's Day, I don't use red and white color combinations, I try to avoid useless decor and knicknacks, and this project would not match any place in my house but it is so cute that it makes me want to try. Now I'll have to think about what I can do to modify this and make it work for my life.
http://hyperboleandahalf.blogspot.com/ -- I believe that the author of this blog may in fact be a long-lost sibling. Not only does she create drawings and tell stories like my brother Tin Man, her experiences must be similar because all my siblings end up laughing so hard that we forget to breathe. My brothers believe that they invented "Seven Games to Play with a Brick" and that the author was just spying on them during their childhood.
http://alittlelovelyblog.blogspot.com/ -- I'm really into crafting, as you might be able to guess from the blogs that I follow. This does not mean that I am a crafty person by any stretch of the imagination, but I have a few places I turn to for inspiration. This is one of those places.
Another crafty blog can be found here: http://thoughtfuldesigns.blogspot.com/ or here: http://hisugarplum.blogspot.com/ or here: http://happyhappyhousewife.blogspot.com/
One thing that I noticed about most of these blogs: they are written by stay-at-home moms. I am impressed by their craftiness. So if you are bored or if you want to try a craft project or maybe you just want to give your brain a rest and look at pretty pictures online for a few minutes, check them out. I'm sure that you, like me, will find inspiration for a future project among the many ideas from the minds of these clever authors.
