A new obsession....and an old one!

I touched on it briefly in my last post, but wanted to do a whole other post on my latest obsession...Pinterest!!  If you've never heard of it (umm, where have you been!) imagine a virtual notice board of inspiration where you can "pin" images that inspire you, ideas you want to try and just images that make your heart happy!

You can search other images people have "pinned" and the boards they have created and create your own boards under different topics.  I find it fascinating and some of the images I've found have been so inspiring.  I've found loads of ideas for my nephews Mickey Mouse party.

Take a look at my boards, here!

From my Mickey Mouse Party Theme Board on Pinterest

My other obsession is one I've had for a while now, blog hopping!  I thought I'd share a few new blogs I've found recently that I've really loved reading and look forward to new posts!

Twinkles, Tutus and Twirls - my lovely crafty friend Estelle has started a blog about her fab parties she does for her children and the lovely items she makes for her crafty business.  Its a new blog so pop along and be one of the newest followers!

Sweet Williams - A Handmade Home - found this blog completely by accident but turns out, the lovely lady at Sweet Williams is from South Wales, like me, is a craftaholic, like me and has two small children (Im sure you see the pattern).  She's soon to be launching her brand new website selling all her lovely handmade items, so looking forward to seeing that!

Yummy Mummys Galore - my lovely sisters lovely blog.  It features fab outfits she wears and (I think, more importantly) amazing photos of my lovely handsome nephew!  She does make me laugh though so pop along and say hello and add to her ever growing band of followers (we're not competing...honest).

The Fluff Pot - love reading this blog and the lovely Becky is having a giveaway at the moment so even more of a reason to go and join her! 

Im always on the lookout for new crafty blogs so if anyone has any suggestions, send them my way!!
