Five Fav's on Friday...


This post was inspired by my blog-friend, Cate who recently did a post about her five favorite blogs. I thought it was a great idea and immediately started thinking about which blogs I might choose if I did a similar post. It was tough! I follow 88 blogs and while each of them are deserving of a mention for some reason or another, here are my top five (in no particular order):

#1 - Skip to My Lou ~ love this blog for the quick and easy craft projects. When my daughter Carrie was little we loved crafting together (still do). Craft with your kids! Roll up your sleeves and make a mess! Nurture their creativity! This blog will give you all sorts of ideas.

#2 - Centsational Girl ~ This is a great DIY blog. Her projects make me want to quit my full time job and re-do everything in my house! Carrie and I love looking for potential treasures at thrift stores and bringing them home for my hubby to re-finish. Centsational Girl does these project all by herself!

#3 - PoppyTalk ~ Fun blog with tons of inspiration!

#4 - The Decorated Cookie ~ CUTE projects that I will never make. I tend to stick with crafting non-food items, but this gal is really clever with kitchen utensils!

#5 - The Long Thread ~ Every time there's a new post on this blog I want to make the project shown.

And I want to give a special mention (shameless plug) to my daughter's new blog: Rosalind Revival Check it out when you get a chance.

What are some of your favorite blogs...and why? I'm always looking for new inspiration and would love to add a few more to my list of 88.

That's really interesting, I was toying with the idea of doing my next Tuesday Top Ten on my favourite blogs but I realised I couldn't narrow it down! So I plan to do a 'blog of the week' feature now and then and tell people about some of the blogs I enjoy and why - probably starting next week. Look out for it then! x

It is interesting to start branching out beyond the blogs from Shimelle's class. I'll have to consider this idea as well.

Thanks for sharing these links! I just checked out centsational girl and her blog looks absolutely fabulous. I'm adding it to my reader!

I am excited to check them all out -- especially your daughter's.

how do you only keep 88 blogs in your reader? I randomly delete one here or there, but usually add at least two a day ~lol~ no wonder it can take me a whole day to read everything (this morning I had 134 items to read!)

Thanks for more links!
