I have been "tagged" by mj weston. (Thanks for asking me to play!)
My number one FAVORITE blogger right now is Michelle Wooderson. I love her style, her color combinations, her studio space. I love how she has a little "tip" at the end of each post. I love her personality, and it really shines through her writing.
After doing my daily blog reading routine this morning, I noticed every person in blog land had been tagged and I didn’t want my post to become to repetitive in comparison to others. So I thought I would list a few of my favorites that are a little less well known…
Posy Gets Cozy: Alicia Paulson; I love this girls whimsical/ retro style. I really get inspired by her use of color and pattern combinations (check out this particular post for a great example of this). She takes AMAZING photographs, really savors yummy food and has a way of writing that really draws me in.
Rachel Thomae: Her blog, named "A Writer’s Life", is really unique. Although she rarely posts photographs with her posts, I find her writing so thought-provoking. Each of her posts end with a "Your Turn" caption. I copy and paste these into an on-going document that I refer to when I need a jump-start for a journal entry. Here is one of my favorites from one of her recent posts:
Your Turn: It’s my new thing. Examining things in details and writing about what I see. I’ve got freshly bloomed yellow tulips in my yard, and they are on my list. Choose something and study it for ten minutes and then write about it.
Rebecca Cooper: Love this girls stuff. She is a regular contributer for Simple scrapbooks, and AMAZING photographer and has such a keen eye for the "simple style" that I love. I love the way her blog makes me feel when I visit; a happy, homey place. This blog post is a perfect example of why I love stopping by! Check-out how she announced her recent pregnancy news to the blogging world!
A Passion for Scrapbooking, Decorating and Shopping: Jeanette is hip, trendy and stylish and is the QUEEN of internet shopping (insert me bowing graciously!!!). I love seeing what new products, websites and projects are her new favorites with each post. Sometimes it is a new paper crafting find, or an amazing lamp, or perhaps an organizational product, or even which brand of nail polish is THE best! I find her sense of style so appealing and similar to mine, it is a joy each time I visit. She takes the time to find these things that compliment me so well, all I have to do is keep tabs on her latest and greatest and my shopping is done! Kind of like having my own personal shopper!
I hope you will take time to check out these blogs! I find them so inspirational, and I think you will too!
