Yesterday the awesome Samantha tagged me to pick my five favorite sites.
Wha? Just five? Huh?
Considering that I have 158 feeds in bloglines, a folder of 14 more sites that aren't available on bloglines and a folder of four sites to check weekly and yeah that gets a little overwhelming.
So... here's some people that I love that you may not know about.
Oil Cloth Junkie -- I heart Michelle. Big, gushy-gushy heart love with sprinkles and sequins. She is my new best friend, and knows it as well. Did you know we live in a hand basket going to hell together? We do. It's lined in purple velvet and it's oh, so comfortable. She lives in Lawrence, about an hour away from me, with her husband and two kids. And she makes stuff, lots of stuff. And lives with color, lots and lots of color. And she even let her husband rip out part of their driveway for a garden plot. Seriously, seriously, awesome.
Tomfoolery -- Tommy doesn't update too often, but when he does it usually contains snarky commentary of his homosexual escapades, which let's face it: that's hawt. And he totally talks smack about famous people and doles out free advice that they don't take, but should.
Meegan Blue -- Meegan is awesome. Meegan has been writing as long as I have (actually, a month longer) and tells of her life as a mom (she has three kids -- that's more kids than hands; MORE KIDS THAN HANDS, PEOPLE) and the struggle to find some time to craft and make stuff too (hmmm... sounds familiar).
This is Me -- Laura has more than she knows what to do with. A single mom of a very awesome special needs boy and a crafter, she is a Wonder Woman to be looked up to. And her tales make me want to buy a gun and open fire at insurance companies.
Craft Junkie -- Emy and her husband and son are currently living in Italy (Italy! Italy! Italy!), she too is a fabulous crafter who makes all sorts of fabulous stuff, including recently boiling plastic spoons and turning them into jewelry. I'm totally not kidding. Jewelery. And it is adorable.
So, there. You can choose to play along. Or not. I'm a rule breaker like that.
Yesterday I did manage to get out and plant all my flowers...
::sigh:: Children. Gah. They always dodge into the frame at the last moment, don't they? Here's a close-up...
Ah. Much better.
And for extra fun, has anyone heard about this yet?
It's a documentary on the new wave of indie craft in America. I'm all over that.
