(Before I start, I wanted to send out a message to Marinanne Gonzales. Marianne, if you could please email me again with your address, I would appreciate it. I deleted it by accident. Sorry and thanks!)
Today I am sharing a bunch of cool links. And a bit of enabling, too.
We should start with the enabling, huh? Well, I found some realllllly cool foam pop dots. You know how much I loved them – I can't create without 'em. Recently I tried a really inexpensive kind from scrapbookbakery.com and I fell in love. Woohoo! They are a good size and price. Can't beat that, huh? You can find them HERE. She also has my favorite adhesive now, too… HERE and HERE.
Speaking of Scrapbook Bakery, I know a few people were interested in the great Mistletoe Memories kit that they donated for the Card Drive. Well, she put together a few more of the kits and they now are available HERE. Thanks, Heather! Oh, and if you are local to Cincinnati, email Heather first via her site and she will always give you free shipping!
Oh, and I just noticed there is a great new kit with guest designer Laura Vegas up at Scrapbook Bakery HERE. I am off to buy it…
OK. Enough enabling for today. Now on to some great links…
Thank you for sharing with me your favorite blogs! I thought I would pull a few of them together here in case they are new for others. (BTW, you still have time to tell me your fave blog for a chance to win a Studio Calico kit HERE!)
Here they are… (Click on the names to be linked to their blog.)
Ah, yes… everyone knows of Ali's incredible blog. And I can honesty say that she is even cooler in real life. I remember when she was a student in the back of my class at CKU Vancouver many years ago. She took the class project and reworked it in her own way. And I can tell ya – it looked a heck of a lot better than the layout I had planned! We had such fun that weekend – she is a good egg. (My grandpa used to call good people that – does anyone else say that?)
Oh my. This girl has got to be the most talented cardmaking stamper on the planet. If you haven't seen her site, you must. Wowsers. Her cards are like little masterpieces. It is a fave of mine, too.
Nichol is a class act. Her blog is classy. Her cards are classy. Her products (Papertrey Ink) are classy. And, when I met her recently, I am happy to say she is classy too. :) I admire her work and her so much. I look forward to buying some of her stamps soon to play with here!
Hero Arts Blog
So many of you mentioned this place. I hope you all visit this coming week especially… hint hint.
This girl is good for the soul. Her blog makes me belly laugh. I can't thank her enough for making me smile so very often. I really like Cathy. Such a good person… and so very talented.
I am so glad many of you have been to her blog. There is this amazing sweetness about her. Her family, her work, her writing… all are sweet. God was in a very good mood when he created Jamie. :) Oh, and her little Elsie and my little Colin would look oh-so-cute together. Hee.
We all know he is talented. Uber-talented. But what is even better is that he is simply a good guy. I really enjoy him as a person, and his blog is awesome.
This one was new to me and I am so glad a few of you recommended it. Wow… Sasha is super talented and fabulous with the details.
She is just as funny in real life. And, boy, is she talented…
I am so glad that many of you mentioned her site. I remember seeing this one some time ago… and I will now be remembering to visit often. I can't decide which is more adorable – her or her cards. And her videos rock. She has got to be one of the most talented people I have seen in the industry. So many of you mentioned her!
This girl defines talent. And she is so very kind. I admire her in many ways.
Michelle from Purple Onion Designs
Although I already loved Michelle and her stamps, I am new to her blog. I can see why so many of you like it. Her cards are refreshing and fun.
I am new to this one, too. Can't wait to go back and spend lots of time checking it out. Looks incredible!
Another new one for me. Looks amazing! Many of you mentioned this one.
Another one many mentioned that is new to me. I love what she does with the Cuttlebug and Christian greetings. So pretty.
Glad you all pointed out this one, too. I can see myself spending hours looking at her creations. Wow.
Oh my. This is one incredible blog. You must check it out. Her creations are pure eye-candy.
This sweet girl pointed out that last blog to me (thanks!) and I checked out hers. It is great. Her cards are priceless.
Ok… I think I have procrastinated enough. My husband and I are watching Signs. But I have seen it and remember it is pretty freaky, so I think I am going to head up to bed. Movies don't usually shake me, but this one did!
