am booked. and in love.

today i bring you a showcase of my favorite inspirational idea of turning your own life into pages of a book. {these photos originated on the blogs listed and have been bookmarked in my bloglines.} so, dive in and flip the pages. these blogs are among my absolute favorites too. if i weren't cleaning out my fridge, wrapping dishes in newspaper, folding clothes into boxes, emptying my scrapbook paper bin or growing a baby, i would make one right now. {check back in june.}

meanwhile, these crafty queens make me so so so happy. i feel like blogging is a club that you join and just belong to. whether the other members even know it or not. connecting lives and feelings and happinesses and joining in on the convo. because i know i would laugh the days away with people like you and you and you. am so glad i can pack this blog up and be the same me even when i move miles away. you'll still be there. and i'll still be right here. just in a different space.

introducing the inspiring art books:

ali edwards.

amazing ali edwards: inspirational guru girl to the stars.

elise the beautiful: the paper project princess

melissa: she seems to savor the simple in each gorgeous moment

elsie the wild wonder: she makes originality look easy.

rachel: purely pretty and packed with bling

I've been so inspired by your blog the last few months! I even had to share the "story of stuff" link with my readers. Thanks for that and all the inspiring, fun, sweet posts.

Thank you for sharing your inspirations. I found some wonderful new sources of inspiration. I just love all the connections blogging provides. Congratulations on your little one. I am so glad you are enjoying this time. I loved my pregnancy. Being a mother is even better.
