Long before somewhatsimple.com existed, I was inspired by some fabulous bloggers who were already knee-deep in sharing their talents and creativity. I had a long list of favorite blogs I checked regularly and I had so many pages bookmarked with crafts I wanted to create, tips I wanted to try, and stories I wanted to re-read. Now that I have this blog of my own, much of my online time is used for writing posts and creating content and I don’t get around to other blogs too much, but I still have a small list of favorites that I check regularly. Today I want to share with you that small list- so here it is, in no particular order:
My Fab 5:
5 Incredible and Inspiring Bloggers
 One Pretty Thing is updated daily and features inspiring projects of all sorts. For those of you who have little time to search craft blogs and forums for yourself, Rachel does it for you and her site is AMAZING! She features the best of the best and it makes for one very inspiring place to browse. 

Lisa Leonard has one of the prettiest blogs I have ever seen! I first stumbled across her online jewelry shop and it was love at first site! Perhaps what is even more fabulous than her jewelry is her personal blog. It is simply decorated with stunning pictures and sweet stories of Lisa’s life with her family. Lisa is an amazing mom and successful entrepenuer, and anyone who reads about her journey of raising 2 boys, one who is handicapped, will be touched and inspired to be and do better. Reading Lisa Lenoard’s blog reminds me to find joy in the simple things.  

Laurie is the epitome of Fabulous, and her blog is nothing short of fantastic! Her creative energy and contagious spunk always brings a smile to my face. Tip Junkie showcases creative ideas and organizational tips from both beginners and experts alike that are sure to inspire. As a busy mom of 3 little guys, Lauire’s talents and drive are admirable. Her fun personality and willingness to help others find success with their blogs makes her even more fabulous in my eyes!
Becca is the blogger who actually persuaded me to start a blog of my own! We were best friends in High School and ended up marrying brothers less than 2 weeks apart- kind of like a fairytale, right?! I am always amazed and inspired by Becca’s creativity and passion! This girl is super talented and probably one of the nicest people you will ever meet! Blue Cricket Design is full of creative inspiration and Becca’s fun personality and love of life comes out in her blog posts, which is always fantastically refreshing!

U Create

Kari’s site was probably the first “crafty” blog that I became a follower of. U-Create is an amazing platform for creative bloggers to showcase awesome ideas and tutorials. Some of my favorite creations I have seen in the past 2 years have been ideas featured by Kari. Her site is simple and easy to navigate and her personality is sweet and friendly. I will forever be a fan of the fabulous U-Create!  

So there you have it! 5 Fabulous Bloggers!
 Who are your favorites? I’d love to check them out! Leave me a comment with your list and lets see if we can all find a new favorite or 2!
