Sites I Stalk

As my list of blogs/sites I'm loving keeps growing, I thought it'd be fun to share a handful of them, along with the reasons they rock. Here goes.....


Nicole is the blogger behind Making It Lovely, and she lives up to the name. She's working on transforming her family's so-so bungalow into a cute home, and the pictures of her place are incredible. She does the things I would love to do in my place, but when I try it never comes out as fabulous. She also is the owner/creator of Pink Loves Brown, an online stationary shop full of cute cards, bookplates and tons more.

Decorology

I don't remember where found Decorology, but it was one of my first 5 finds, and I've been through her entire blog multiple times. Ashley pulls from magazine websites, artists, photographers and who knows where else. Her overall taste matches mine so wonderfully that I'm always running back for more!

Hostess With The Mostess

Finding this site a few months ago has made for some awesome nights up late cruising through other peoples' parties. The pictures are gorgeous and I'm dying to host a baby shower or two to try some themes out!

oh, hello friend

oh, hello friend speaks to the softer side of me. There are regular giveaways, daily postings, and many links to all kinds of art, jewelry, clothing and more. The best part? She has usually has multiple posts each day :)

Blah to Tada!

Claire is the perfect example of good things coming into your life when you least expect it. I have no clue where she found me, but a random comment from her had me instantly hooked on her site. blah to Tada! is full of Claire's ingenious ways to recycle or improve on the everyday things that we all have. She combines a bunch of 'blah' items and Tada!-you're left with a beautiful picture of something you're dying to go do yourself. She must bottle up all of her creativity in all of her little honey bear jars. I have no idea how she's able to post with new ideas each day, but I'm loving it!

Made By Girl

I first found Jennifer's blog through her Etsy shop, and I'm so happy I did. It was like getting a present on an already awesome day. She also has another online shop full of cards and posters including her too-cute-for-words ABC posters.

Twig & Thistle

If you're always on the lookout for fantastic crafty ideas and Do-It-Yourself freebies, this is the site for you. I'm loving the Ice Cream Dream post and the DIY Freebie: Lunch Bag Notes.

Bakerella

There really aren't words to sum up how fantastic I think Bakerella is. Her recipes are so yummy and what makes her extra wonderful to me is that she walks you through everything! Mouth watering pictures go hand in hand with detailed instructions, so there's really no messing it up. I'm thinking of having a Bakerella inspired party, anyone wanna come?

Centsational Girl

If there was ever someone I'd want as a neighbor to guide me through all of my projects, it would be Kate from Centsational Girl. She transforms some of the most awkward looking things into "gotta-have-it" items. I love what she says...."I'm on a quest for diamond style on a dime, and I'm out to make my world fabulous, for less, one DIY project at a time." She's not kidding at all. Check out her Staircase transformation. Wowza!

Cake Wrecks

I must be the last person to jump on the Cake Wrecks bandwagon, but I think I'm the one who lucked out. It's like watching a tv series on dvd. You get to skip all the pesky commercials. Well I got an overdose of cake in a matter of days. I laughed, giggled, shared with people around me, and many times said, "Blah. What were they thinking?!?!", all because of this awesome blog. Throughout the week Jen posts horrifying cakes, awkward typos, and just plain scary creations that Wreckerators slap together. At least she makes up for it on Sunday with Sunday Sweets, the complete 180 degree opposite of the Wrecks. Just look. You'll understand.

Now go check out all the amazingness that these sites have to offer!

Are you using delicious to organize all your sites by any chance?

Brittanie said...

Nope. I've been hooked on Google Reader. I've got all my sites organized in there and it lets me know when there are new posts on each site. I'll check out Delicious though. Is it good?

I like it because it lets me follow blogs/websites easily, organize them, tag them, and share them with others. It works pretty seamlessly with firefox so if you use that for a browser, I think you will really like it.
