My inspiration for this list of blogs came from Amada Brook, who was kind enough to feature Curly Birds in her 5 New Blogs to Love post. Live Life Simply is exactly that – Amanda’s quest to focus on her family and nature. It is always interesting to read about life in a different hemisphere and Amanda gives such a picturesque view of her home in Australia.
Amanda is the owner of Little Eco, an online store that stocks eco-friendly and natural products for children and their families.
I’d like to hang out and have a cup of tea, play date, or crafternoon with Michelle McInerney of Molly Moo. Too bad she lives all the way in Ireland. Visiting her blog is the next best thing – it is jam packed with crafty goodness, fab Etsy finds, and social awareness and support for the Masai children in Kenya.
Michelle also hosts the International Children’s Gallery. Watch this space – I hope Michelle will pop over for a chat and some crafty fun soon.
Word Play House is a thoughtful blog full of beautiful pictures, well-written articles, and an array of crafty ideas. Heather Cahoon, a New York Times bestselling children's book illustrator, shares her under-scheduled family life and helps families to find simple ways to connect together.
Visit You Make Do to purchase Heather’s pretty creations for parties and play.
Small for Big is a blog good for a daily dose of fresh finds. In Mari’s words, “small for big is a place where parenthood, modern design, and your strict budget hold hands and do the hokey pokey.” I am always impressed at the amazing amount of cool stuff Mari features – I mean, where else can you find tooth fairy business cards?
My list would not be complete without The Crafty Crow. It was one of the first blogs I started reading, and the first blog that ever featured a craft of mine, and continues to support and promote Curly Birds. Cassi curates an amazing collection of children's crafts that follow the seasons and inspire creativity. Thank you Cassi!
So, there you have it - my 5 Blogs to Love. What blogs are you reading this summer? I'd love to know.
