I have a thing for…

Crafting. Today I found inspiration by clicking my way through the internet. My inspiration comes from all over, but I definitely have a thing for simplicity and color. And that is exactly what you get with this craft. I found this AMAZING INCREDIBLE WONDERFUL CRAFTY blog today and I cannot get enough of it. It is SO inspiring and it has now become a staple on my top sites, Alisa Burke 🙂

What I love about this craft is that you can do whatever color combination you want and use different ribbon as the actual headband. I just used what I had around the house because I wanted to try out the craft as soon as I could. Its simple but elegant and all you need is scissors, ribbon of your choice, needle, thread and a hot glue gun.

I have a thing for…

Blogs. Clearly, because I have one I would be addicted to finding other blogs and obsessing over their content. My first blog love has to go to Michelle Profis, if it were not for her I would not have a blog to call my own. She has two different blogs that you can read Big Grapes, Small Raisins or An American Girl in the London World. Michelle writes so beautifully and whenever she posts it feels like I am on a mini-holiday with her in London.

Some other blogs that I can’t get enough of include Gaby Dunn’s 100 Interviews. Gaby has taken on the task of interviewing 100 different people that she has never met and it is really enjoyable to read about her journey of these interviews. Carly Lundy also has a blog that I cannot get enough of. She posts great recipes and ideas that you should definitely check out The Daily Batch! I also have a thing for Chelsea’s blog top5. Here she brings together her love of the Gators, Football and other great things as she counts down her top 5 faves.

I found this blog by clicking and clicking my way through the wonderful world of wedding websites. No, I am not getting married, but I simply LOVE wedding websites. I can thank Lindsay for this problem I have. It started with Style Me Pretty and has since grown to include MANY other sites. I don’t recall how I came across Green Wedding Shoes but I haven’t looked back since. For me, its the photography that draws me into these different sites. I can’t get enough of photography, which is why I LOVE this next blog.

Mr and Mrs Globe Trot. This couple just got married and decided to spend the next six months traveling the world. They have just finished up the Europe segment of their trip, it lasted three months. They are wedding photographers when they are living in the states, so I was obviously drawn to their gorgeous pictures on their blog. If you get a minute, you really should check it out. I feel like I am along for the ride on their amazing travels.

Today I found this blog FRYD + DESIGN and I just love the colors and visuals on the site. And obviously I love Food Blogs. I found this one yesterday thanks to twitter. Making sundaySauce, having just gotten my new camera, I love photographing food and this is a great guide to help me along my journey.

Thats all for today, but I will add more as I find what is out there on this amazing invention we call Internet. Today I am having a technology love attack. It is amazing how the Internet can bring people together from all over the world who have the same interests and desires to share with others.

I have a thing for…

Crafting. It is quite the obsession I have. I taught myself how to knit and crochet. I have dappled in quilting and about to embark on another quilting project. Yesterday my mom and I stumbled across a Borders that was closing so we decided to venture to the craft section to see if we could find anything good to take home. I think I did pretty well, coming home with 6 books: a cook book FoodPornDaily (CLICK IT ITS AMAZING), 2 quilting books, 2 knitting/crocheting books and a new hobby that I have yet to try but cannot wait to see how it all works out…book making.

The new craft/hobby looks very interesting, and I hope I get the hang out it. Stay tuned and see if anything pops up in my creations page of the blog. I hope it does!
