I've become a big fan of the blog While she Naps because the author is so generous with her knowledge and talents about sewing soft toys. If you have a few minutes and have an interest in that sort of thing I would recommend checking it out.
If you like art, stop by for a visit at Geninne's Art Blog. She captures two of my favorite topics - Birds and Flowers. I was so inspired by her work that I asked for and received watercolors and paper as my Christmas gift this year from my wonderful hubby.
