Blogs I Adore

 Here are 5 more blogs I can't help but read daily! 

              Not only does this lovely lady have great tutorials on hair dying, she also posts on a few niche hobbies like mushroom collecting, and thrifting. There are a million and one reasons to recommend this blog, to narrow it down to just a few, Kaylah has a great eye when it comes to photography, personal style, and collecting, accompanied by a simple, and sweet layout, with tutorials you can't find anywhere else, what's not to love?!
                A Beautiful Mess is the best collection of professional looking, but simple DIY projects, that range from elegant, to down right adorable! Elsie and Emma share bits of their lives with their readers from their home decor to their personal styling how to's, that entertain my mad scientist crafting life for hours on end.
               Similar to many bloggers I adore, Skunkboy is a stylin mama with a big heart. Katie has one of the most beautiful tattoos I have ever seen, and not only shares gorgeous outfit posts, but her "Creatures", little hand sewn animals with a whole lot of style, prove that she is a truly talented individual with a well cultivated creative streak. I'd recommend a daily read of this blog to any of my friends!


                The Velvet Bird is a sewing and clothing design genius. Her line of clothing is sweet, delicate, and communicates her true understanding of how to successfully blend retro style in our modern world. She's one beautiful gal with great photography as well! Honestly, there's not a post of her's that I don't adore.
               Much like each of these blogs, The Wonder Forest has something unique to offer, that is hard to find anywhere else. She is a web designer and graphic artist that perfectly combines organization and aesthetics. My blog design is a premade template that I bought from her shop, and after hours of scowering the internet for well designed templates, Dana is one of the only designers I could find that caught my eye, and I would recommend. 
             She also designed an app for the Iphone that is much better than the blogger app, and allows you to post to your blogger account from anywhere, it is perfect for the blogger on the go!

Evening Thoughts

Downloaded some really sweet looking free fonts from here, so I have been having lots of fun writing random things in pretty fonts.

Then I hand doodled over some old scans of mine.

Book Bargains

A trip to your nearby Half Price Books is a must, that is if you are lucky enough to have one in your state. All these books for just under 12 bucks, just as well priced as the ever so tempting Amazon, and with more character too!
