top 10 :: favorite blogs

I like a lot of blogs. No, really... a lot. But there are a few that I really LOVE. These are the blogs that I pretty much stalk... these are the ones that I read practically everyday... I call these people by name... and talk about them to my husband. I sometimes forget that we don't know each other... but trust me, if we did, we would be BFF and have lunch dates, for sure.

I noticed that several of these blogs are not on my blog list to the right. I need to change that. Some major updating needed over there. Will work on that soon.

But in the meantime... here are my top 10 favorite blogs. You should definitely check them out if you don't already.

This blog is fully responsible for introducing me to the Blogosphere. I place the blame completely on Elise. She is adorable and a true DIY-er. I love the organic feel to her minibooks and how she puts her own touch on her adorable CA apartment.

And this would be the second blog that I'm obsessed with. Ali is the creator of the December Daily, which I will be trying again this year, and is a talented memory keeper. I love her encouragement to get your story down... to put it on paper.

This blog is pretty self-explainatory. For any of you OCD peeps out there, Jen's organization tips will leave you giddy with orderly excitement.

This is another good one for any of you neat freaks. I love how Toni posts weekly challenges to encourage you to actually DO the projects we have been talking about for ages. Projects like creating a gift wrap station, organizing your digital photos and meal planning.

Marta's blog is beautifully honest and oh-so-creative. She has the best snack ideas and makes adorable mini journals. And obviously... she loves to write and in the process inspires others to do so too.

Love seeing what Rhoda is up to on this blog... always decorating something, or cooking some type of delicious southern meal. And she always takes her camera along when she's rummaging through beautiful antique stores.

This is my fashion blog. I can't look at many of them, or I start wishing I had more money and just want to go shopping all of the time. But Kendi is a huge fan of thrifting and does a very impressing 30x30 remix... where she chooses just 30 clothing items to wear for the next 30 days, as she creatively comes up with all kinds of outfit combos.

One of my favorite scrapbook blogs, for sure. I love how the focus is on both the photos and the words. They give you prompt ideas for journaling tips in your scrapbooks. So, so fabulous.

Tina's blog is full of gorgeous decor eye candy. I love her, "which would you choose?" posts, where I can spend the morning daydreaming about which room/space I'd most like to be in. And as if that's not enough, Tina is letting us walk through the building process with her as she constructs the most amazingly, beautiful, ginormous, castle, err, I mean house.

Another home decor blog... well for the most part. But as the name implies, there are tons of thrifty ideas for sprucing up your home.

And there you have it... my top 10 favorite blog list. Do you read any of these? Or do you have any blogs that you simply can't live without? Namely... any that I should know about? :)
