These are my favorite places that I lurk on and, occasionally, comment on. Mostly lurk. Not in a creepy way though. Here they are, in no particular order:
http://www.theartofdoingstuff.com/ – Karen, you are hilarious. And my inspiration. She will try anything.
http://janiefoxtalks.blogspot.com/ – A local lady who is so funny. All three of her daughters blog too.
http://housethatjadebuilt.blogspot.com/ – Annie is a local gal, with a special family, who blogs about her life, home, furniture and all sorts of crafty stuff. Janie (above) is her mom.
http://letmestartbysaying.wordpress.com/ – What can I say? Kim kills me. Read it. All of it. NOW!
http://www.thelumberjackswife.com/ – A stay-at-home mommy with 4 kids and a husband and a talent for storytelling.
http://thepioneerwoman.com/ – What can I say about Ree? If you haven’t heard of this one, come out from under your rock and read her. Love her. Want to be her.
http://amysfinerthings.com/ – Amy just makes me want to be a better mommy, need I say more?
http://www.thriftyfun.com/index.html – great stories and frugal tips
http://betterafter.blogspot.com/ – Lindsey shows before and after shots of old, outdated and downright fugly stuff that people have redone. That old dresser that you “inheirited” from your great aunt so-and-so…it’s better after.
http://adiamondinthestuff.blogspot.com/ – another place to see ordinary stuff turned into great looking pieces. Crafty and cool.
