Blog Links from Swap-bot

Besides my family & work, the thing taking up the rest of my "free time" these days has been Swap-bot. If you love getting mail the old-fashioned way, you'll love it! Its my first time joining any sort of online swapping group, unless you count Postcrossing (for postcard lovers!)

One of my recent swaps was a blog swap, not only to promote our blogs, but to see what others are doing. I wanted to share some of these blogs with you!

I love to travel & thought Olivia Arrow has a great way to discuss her escapades. Another fellow Swap-botter has not one, but two blogs! I was very impressed with her creative blog, but then I read her other one - Ramble Time - Reinvented - and liked what she had to say even more. (Have a look at her June 24th post.)
Jessica, one of my Swap-bot friends in Italy has a super-cute blog. Check out some of her beautiful creations! Lil' Miss Polkadot has an adorable blog, as well as a shop and one of her items made it to Etsy's front page last month!! She gives me inspiration for the Craft Pad...
Jennifer, at Just Add Water Silly is also very talented, and shows it in her zentangled bookmarks. I'm really into Zentangle lately! Did you know there's such a thing as a CZT?? (certified Zentangle teacher) Who knew?!
Another crafty swapper is Tally; here is just one of her cool ideas on her blog I Could Make That. (I love the name of her blog!) Our Simply Crazy Life is a beautiful & inspiring blog. She has a great idea for posting links that she calls "link love". Why can't I think of these things??
Speaking of great ideas, "cricutcritter" (her Swap-bot name), does things that I never would have imagined you can do with a Cricut! One of the cutest blogs I've found is out of Indonesia, called Sugar Crawler. I can't wait to try salted butter caramel ice cream...YUM!
Finally, a girl after my own shoe-lovin' heart is Soraya, a.k.a. Dissloved Girl. If only I had some place to wear such fabulous footwear....

What a wonderful list of blogs! It is so nice to be on such a website to be inspired to create and to exchange with like minded people. Much love Ana Goncalves from Swap-bot, Blog Me Baby exchange.

Trulyana said...

By the way just became a Google follower to keep up to date with your projects! Look forward in reading more, and I know exactly what you mean about being busy and wanting to be creative all the time too. Sometimes there isn't enough hours in the day, and othertimes I have too much energy that I need to stop it right there. One thing that continues to show is that creation is simply in everything, and not just craftyness. :) Happy Summer. Ana Goncalves from Swap-bot, Blog me Baby exchange.

I literally JUST learned what Zentangle was! I had no idea it was a 'thing' nevermind the fact that there's certified teachers for it! hehe. Thanks for sharing. {billiemonster from swap-bot 'blog me baby' swap}
