From Stamping to DIY

Funny.  I’m catching up on my google reader (holy cow, I read a lot of blogs) and I’m thinking.  Wow, my life has changed.  When I first started using google reader, it was CHOCK FULL of stampers blogs.  I would drool over the cards and scrapbook pages they created.  Earmarking them and thinking, I’ll totally use this idea for my next card.  Other blogs that took up a lot of my time were recipe blogs.  Don’t ask me why, as I am NOT the primary cook in this house.  I guess I always like the idea of being the primary cook.  But we all know who is king of the kitchen in this house.  That’s right Sam.  While I can prepare a mean (delicious) burger, Sam’s the one with the culinary chops.  So I spent time absorbing peoples thoughts on stamping (and wanting every stamp set possible from Paper Trey Ink … and still do) and cooking.

Now, I find myself obsessively reading DIY blogs.  My stamping blogs are few and far between, and as for those culinary blogs?  They’re pretty much MIA, as I realized, hey, I’m not the big cook around here.  Although I AM trying to make headway in that department, the blogs I was reading weren’t helping me get there.  So the DIY blogs give me TONS of great ideas (which I may, or may not EVER implement) and thoughts on other things I could do.  Actually, a few of them helped kick my butt into gear when it came to getting that dresser done for Finn’s nursery.  I have other things I want to do, and browsing those blogs is ALWAYS inspiring.

A few that I really enjoy- (some of these also just had little ones, which is where I am right now, so I KNOW DIY’ing is attainable!)
