Why I Read ...

I like to read.  A lot.  A lot.  I've devoured books ever since I can remember.  And I read just as much -- or more -- online.  I have two separate Google Reader accounts:  one for crafty/design/DIY/indie stuff and one for everything else.  All told, I'm pushing close to 200 feeds.  one sydney road's Alphabet Blog Hop was responsible for a considerable addition last week.

I know I'm babbling, but it is leading to something.  I'd like to highlight some of the blogs I read and why I read them.  And the first is The Creative Place.  Ashley is a graphic designer and crafter and loves consignment shops.  I love her blog because she has the best tutorials!  She makes crafting look easy and fun.  Today she posted a wonderful tutorial on making fabric covered matchbook mini albums -- so cute! 

Take some time to browse through her blog and tutorials; lots of good stuff!


  1. Hello! Thank you so much for your kind words and shout out about my blog! :) I love creating tutorials and am so glad you like them and they are helpful! :) Have a fabulous day! :)

  2. I like to read a lot, too! I've got an entire room in my house that is full of books. Floor to ceiling bookshelves. My own personal library. And now I've discovered blogs... I spend a good deal of time perusing them too!

  3. I know -- it's a tough call between books and blogs. Thanks for stopping by!
