Crafty Love

3325582-org [Converted] Since it’s Valentine’s Day, I want to spread a little love.  You may or may not have noticed the little Crafty Love tab at the top of the screen.  If you’ve never clicked on it, I’ll fill you in.  It contains links to other blogs and websites who have let me share my work.  I found some of them;  some of them found me.  Many of you have ended up here by clicking links belonging to these generous people.

One of my favorite places is One Pretty Thing.  If you’re a craft surfer, it’s a must-see.  Rachel publishes several lists every day, each full of creativity.  There’s always themed lists, related to whatever season we’re in and general round-ups.  I think of her every week when I’m putting together my Friday Favorites.  I can’t imagine being able to come up with that many things every day.

Another place I like to hang out is Totally Tutorials.  Dotty highlights a few tutorials every day, obviously carefully chosen, with great variety.  On a side note, she has an Etsy store where she sells ADORABLE pincushions.

This one isn’t a craft blog, but I’ve found myself there a lot lately.  If you haven’t tried StumbleUpon, I’m not sure whether to tell you to try it or run away.  It’s a real time killer, but I’ve found many great projects and blogs while stumbling.

The ladies at CraftGossip are pretty amazing.  They manage to publish loads of great links every day and always send the cheeriest e-mails.  Their site is divided into categories, making it easy to take in, one bite at a time.

I was so excited the first time I found a link to my blog from a site in a language I didn’t understand.  I felt so international! is based in Turkey, and thanks to the Google translate feature, I can tell you they are all over the cute crafty links.  Actually, most of the craft tutorial photos speak for themselves.

Speaking of international, another fun blog I’ve been a part of is Freebies for Crafters.  These ladies are based in Australia and New Zealand.  They don’t post as often, but when they do it’s usually something special.

If you want to just spend some time looking at beautiful things, visit craftgawker.  They are very particular about the photos they publish.  I have a few of mine own there, but I’ve been turned down a couple of times too.  Guess you can’t win them all.

When you have time, visit my Crafty Love page and click on a couple of the links.  There’s a whole world of crafty goodness out there, waiting for you to find it.
