I love a pretty blog. Almost as much as I love a perky blog. Dear Lizzy is pretty, sweet and full of the kind of fun posts that make you feel better just knowing that someone this full of life is out in the world. Elizabeth Kartchner is also the scrapbooker behind “Dear Lizzy” products so you can look forward to all sorts of glittery goodness on that front. Happy Reading.
The Yay Friday Round Up: Hungry Pregnant Woman Edition
I’m hungry. I may be spending more time than usual perusing the food blogs. Hope you enjoy the fruits of my hungry browsing!
Fresh Nest Design
Confession time. It took me a good 6 years before my house looked “put together”. Perhaps it wouldn’t have taken so long if I’d been a design blog devotee back then. Now, thanks to great design blogs like Fresh Nest, I no longer look at an empty room and hear crickets. Fresh Nest is one to bookmark along side your other favorite design blogs and visit often - you won’t see the same thing twice.
The Crafting Chicks
Here’s the truth. I can’t craft my way out of wet paper bag. Okay, I could if someone showed me exactly what to do. Crafty people blow my mind so naturally, I’ve got loads of appreciation for the team behind The Crafting Chicks blog. They do it all—crafts for kids, cool DIY projects to spruce up your house, gardening tips and delicious food all get featured. Happy Crafting!
I love to see how other people embrace food and host a great party. Helen Jane’s blog shares her lovely life in Napa Valley —the bocce ball games (and accompanying food), the get-togethers (and the accompanying lessons learned), the cute kids (who doesn’t love a cute kid) and Helen’s great sense of humor and laid-back perspective on entertaining.
Laurie Turk is the oh-so-funny blogger behind Tip Junkie, a website devoted to sharing great ideas on crafting, parenting, blogging, running a household and rocking fabulous hair accessories. But my favorite...the practically LIFE CHANGING feature of Tip Junkie is Laurie’s Personal Assistant post. Every little reminder that you need to start your month out right, all in one place.
