    I like reading Marisa’s work over at New Dress A Day. She’s is doing the kind of thing I’d like to do for myself…if only I had the time!

    My favorite crafty personality is my grammy! She’s absolutely brilliant when she whips out perfectly embroidered saris. My favorite fashion blogger is Rumi Neely, from Fashion Toast because she makes simple things so beautiful!

    My sister is a big inspiration to me. She didnt sew or craft much back in the day, but now that she is a stay at home mom she has picked it up and is very talented. She is always making cute crafts, birthday parties, christmas presents, kids crafts that are just so much fun. I cant wait til I have the time to be that creative.

    Depending upon the day of the week or even the hour, I never know who will be my favorite. Sometimes I am looking for sewing ideas for upcycled materials and other times I am doing a craft in a completely different field. Love them all and do appreciate the willingness to share!

    My favorite blog is Gertie’s blog for better sewing. Her new sew alongs are great! I also love Patty the Snug Bug. It gives me a warm and cozy feeling. Erica B has a great quality content.

    I don’t follow any blogs, but if I want to see something I will google it and if it’s on a blog I will go back and read every single post… haha… I like angry chicken, burdastyle, craftster, and cut out & keep. my favorite is probably the burdastyle blog. :) for sewing, anyway.

    Well – There really are too many to name just one, they all have different strengths. Right now my favorite is Sally Shim (Shimandsons), but it could be someone else next week!
