Spotlight On Blogs

15 May

To the side of this post, you’ll see a list of links to blogs and websites I frequent. I thought I’d take one or two from each section and share with you why I enjoy reading them!

Artsy and Eclectic

Angry Chicken — First of all, how can you NOT chuckle at the name? The blog has nothing to do with being angry or chickens, it’s just a random title the author pulled out of her imagination. This blog is full of her projects, ramblings about her 3 daughters, fantasy shopping, and fabulous pictures. She strikes me as the sort of person who I would love to get to know in real life. If we ever moved to Portland, Oregon, I’d have to resist the horrible temptation to look her up. Because, you know, that’d be kind of stalker-ish.

The Purl Bee — This is a fantastic arts and crafts site that covers a wide range of hand crafts. Everything is beautifully created, all creations have free patterns and clear directions attached, and is just so much fun to look through! It’s a good thing I have impulse control, otherwise I’d have 57 different projects started by now and not a single one finished.

Edible Places

Karina’s Kitchen aka Gluten Free Goddess — Aaron has a gluten intolerance (not full blown Celiac disease, thank God) and really should be on a gluten free diet. At first, I was completely overwhelmed by the prospect but this blog showed me that GF food can be amazingly tasty AND budget friendly!

Bakerella — She’s been featured all over the internet and television. I love looking at the amazing creations she comes up with for delicious, fantastic looking desserts. Her Easter basket cupcakes are probably one of my favorites and I can’t wait until Ella is old enough to appreciate them!

Fabulous Friends

Mrs. Soup is one of my dearest friends. She was the matron of honor at my wedding and she flew half way across the country to fill that roll, if that tells you anything. Even though I talk to her regularly, I still get a kick out of reading about her day, seeing pictures of her adorable new daughter and amazing husband. Her blog is just starting out and I’m sure she would love the encouragement of seeing people pop by. P.S. She’s addicted to comments. *wink*

Thistle Creek Photography — This is the photoblog of my dear friend, Michelle, who has taken amazing pictures of my family over the years. The pictures I posted on Aaron’s birthday post? Yeah, she did those in a series that I have hanging on my walls. I really enjoy seeing her work, since I don’t get to see HER often enough. She’s just come out of a couple month slump of not posting, so I’m hoping this will encourage her to keep it up.

Frugal Fun

Deal Seeking Mom — Who doesn’t like multiple posts a day filled with great grocery and shopping deals that you don’t have to hunt for? I skim her blog probably once a day, after dinner, and figure out if anything will fit in with our grocery plan for the following week. It’s not just coupons that draws me, however. I enjoy her writing style and sense of humor as well.

    Ooooh! I love Bakerella. πŸ™‚

    I’m incredibly bored at work so I went through The Pioneer Woman’s comment today (she’s my favorite) & have been reading everyone’s blogs. HA! This is great! I’ll have to stop by again. Beautiful baby! πŸ™‚
