Blogs I Love

Perusing the internet’s other blogs is very educational and I also very much admire the established ones.  I find them inspirational, interesting, informative, and again, educational.  Here are a few of my favorite ones:

Crazy Little Projects – I don’t remember how I came across this particular site (I think I most likely entered a fabric contest) but I love it.  The owner is Amber Price and she loves to sew and like me, loves fabrics.  I first noticed her site because she did a Learn To Sew Series for a beginner.  Even though I know how to sew, her approach to teaching how to sew was in how easy she presented the material.  It was easy and FUN!  She added photos (something I’m still not good at here), step-by-step, and a project that referenced the lesson in question.  Her site also includes giveaways, tutorials, and fun, easy ideas.  Check her out:  http://crazylittleprojects.com/

How To Finish A Quilt – This is another favorite.  It is a quilting site for beginners and the ‘quiltist’ (her word) is a lady by the name of Eileen Thomas and she’s great.  She has a quilting course that you pay for online and get started with great information, projects, and confidence.  I love her videos, step-by-steps, diagrams, and most of all, the abundance of information.  She makes everything make sense.  If you are a beginner, this is a great place to start.  She is also on Facebook and Twitter.

Scholastic – Everyone knows about the Scholastic site but it is the blog that I am fascinated with.  I am a big reader and my long-term ambition is for my children to love reading as much as I do.  This page:  http://www.scholastic.com/parents/blogs/scholastic-parents-raise-reader is filled on all kinds of ideas on how to Raise a Reader.  It has tips on how a parent can greatly help their child want to read.  The entire site contributes to the scholastic success of every child.  It also has information for teachers, administrators, and librarians.  I became more involved with the whole Scholastic world when my son’s school held their annual Book Fair sponsored by Scholastic.  I love this site.

There are so many other blogs I can name but one of the reasons I mentioned these three in particular is because of how much information each site provides.  I love how much effort and dedication they have to their craft.  I hope to be one of those too as I get better at this myself.  In the meantime, check out their sites and let me know which site you love too.  Most now are on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.  Information is knowledge and I love these sites!

Oh, one more thing.  The following link is not a blog but I find it just as fascinating – https://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/HolidayCentral?fref=ts.  It is a Facebook page called Everything Holiday that is dedicated to every holiday on the calendar.  It is one of my favorite pages on Facebook.  It kind of works like a blog but with pictures and captions.  I don’t know where they get the pictures (some from the Internet, I’m sure) but they are all relevent and abundant.  Check it out and you’ll see what I’m talking about!  It’s neat!

Here’s one of their current pictures posted for Easter:
