Having the job that I do, I follow so many FABULOUS (there's that word again!) blogs that it's really tough to narrow it down to just five that I love .... There are HUNDREDS! 
 So let's just say here are five great blogs that if you aren't following, you should. 


(Broken record time ...) I know I've said it time and again, but if your aren't following 
Koralee at Bluebird Notes you MUST! She is one of the most beautiful bloggers both inside and out.
 If I ever need any inspiration, she's my very first stop! Thank you Koralee for brightening my day:)


I love the The Long Thread for it's simple clean look, great projects and easy directions. Plus, she has a "Where to Buy Handmade" section with a huge list of artists. You can't miss it! 


Soulemama is the wonderful blog created by Amanda Soule. She lives in an old farm house in Maine and chronicles her life with beautiful photography and lovely stories. She has an emphasis on the natural craft lifestyle, so her blog is where I first fell in love with Bamboletta dolls. Plus, she has a "Currently Enjoying" section where she highlights some great children's books. 


Allsorts is the crafty blog of illustrator Jenny B Harris. It is so whimsical and fun ... You'll love it! She has dozens of really cute projects and tutorials. She also has an Etsy shop with darling embroidery patterns. One day I may even try it ... You know, 'cause I need ANOTHER hobby! 


Inspire co.  is the blog of Amy Powers, who also publishes the beautiful webazine Inspired Ideas. It's is filled with great ideas, inspiring photos and all around lovelyness! I have loved each issue of her magazine, I just wish that Issuu had a better app for iPad. Hopefully they'll get that fixed. Visit right now ... You'll be glad you did:) 

Have a FABULOUS day my friends:) 

Don't forget to enter the 50 Fabulous Wishes contest for a chance to win $1,000 to support a friend's wish. I was selected for this Tropicana Trop50 sponsorship by the Clever Girls Collective, which endorses Blog With Integrity, as I do. I received compensation to use and facilitate my post.
