Cece at All Dolled Up
Her blog fits how adorable her personality is and she has very cute things for sale as well. I've met CeCe in person and she is just as charming as she appears on her blog.

Amy at Bura Ellen Amy's blog shows her talents in sewing and cooking. She has two darling children with the cutest names, Lucy and Larkin.

Melissa at Charmed Life Melissa's fun personality shines through her blog, and she makes very cute charm bracelets that she sells. Her unique style spills over to the decorating of her home, where has taken us on a tour of.I have also enjoyed her posts on her collection of pottery.

Valerie of un arc en ciel dans le lavabo Valerie's blog is in French, but the very talented girl can also write in perfect English! She is an amazing seamstress and crochet artist. Even if you can't read French, her blog is worth a visit. She has beautiful photos of where she lives and you can take a mini trip to France through her blog.

Linnea at Linnea Paulina Linnea's blog is packed with eye catching cooking adventures and charming sewing projects. Her sweet personality comes through, as you read about her family and her jaunts to visit her boyfriend in California.

Jen at The Fabled Needle If you love to crochet and sew, you must visit Jen's blog! She sells her crochet patterns as well as her beautiful jewelry. I love the look of her blog and being a fellow seamstress of apparel, I really enjoy her vintage sewing posts.

Andrea at Under A Blue Moon Andrea has a way around a camera and shows her talents in many forms. She crafts,cooks and sews,and embroiders. She has a beautiful home here in California that is fun to peek at when she shares corners of it through her posts.
