I was very excited to read on Plain Jane Creations blog that she loved my blog! It's been fun to do, and I've really enjoyed all the new friendships I have made all around the world (actually mainly from Australia and Holland but hopefully other countries soon). I think it's so nice to find people out there with similar interests who are all willing to share tips, ideas and inspiration. The crafting community seems to have gone global which is good as there doesn't seem to be much happening in my local community. So I for one, am very happy to have found out about the world of bloggers.
So, who inspires me most?
One of the first blogs I discovered was KissKus . I enjoy reading not only about her crafting but also about her life in Holland and her family.
I also really like devliegendekoe as she has not only been a source of inspiration, but she has been very friendly and welcoming into the blogging world as have Dutch Blue and Thyme and Lavender.
Here in Australia I love Moopy and Me - not only because Carly is fabulously talented and produces great stuff, but also because she taught Emily how to make her first softie. So, we definately have a soft spot for her! I also love hazyjane - we have had a little contact since I discovered her blog but I feel like we are on the same wave length - it's just a pity she lives in a different state! It would be nice to catch up over a coffee. I also love FreeFalling - for her honesty and strength.
I love lots of different blogs, too many to list, but for now these are the ones who have a big impact on my blogging life. Naturally, Plain Jane Creations is on my list too - I've only just found her but I am enjoying her blog immensely. It is her I have to thank for my first felting attempt - when I saw what she had been making, I decided I wanted to try it! So thanks Lisa!!!!
And thanks to all the above listed bloggers - you all have inspired me in different ways and you have all made me smile - I hope I can return the favour!
PS: I forgot to mention Kali - who was one of my first Australian blogs and my first etsy purchase (the most adorable pin cushion). I love the photography and I love her craft and I love the fact that she has been so friendly too - so drop in and see her as well!
