5 Awesome what? 

Why bloggers that is! 

I know your expecting me to name some famous names like Ree @ Pioneer Woman, GiGi @ Kludgy Mom, or Char @ Crap I've Made. While I absolutely worship love these women and their abilities to write amazing blogs, at what seems like the drop of a hat, I wanted to focus on some "smaller" bloggers. 

I went through my google reader to search for the perfect bloggers to write about. I read so many blogs and had a hard time at first... So I sat down and played with my son a bit and just thought about who stood out. Who's posts did I always scour the reader to find if I did not have a chance to read all 345 that were listed as unread? 

Than I had to whittle that list down...Phew! Lots of work! So without further ado...

I have to say this woman is great! I have had the chance to get to know her a bit better through a crafty mommy group we both belong to online. Not only does she run a blog that has never failed to keep me entertained but she does it while chasing her 2 small children around, running a house, marriage, and battling thyroid cancer. 

Not only is she talented sewing but she is a great speller!

First of all I bow to this lady because she has boys and embraces it! She made a SUPPORT BLOG! A place where all of us moms with boys (or in my case only boys) to go and share our boyish sides. This makes her an awesome blogger all on its own. But to top it off she adds in some girly momma stuff too. -sigh- I might be bloggy crushing a little.

She shows us how to make these cute little garbage catchers.

And is not afraid to host a party!


"If I can craft, anyone can." -Elizabeth
And boy can she craft! This is one talent lady and has a AWESOME blog to boot! What started as a place to show off her craftiness and keep herself accountable for 12 crafts till christmas for her two daughters has turned into an inspiring blog for moms, grandmothers, aunts, and more! Blogging about crafts is just not good enough for Mrs. Elizabeth, she has to blog about her life, decorating, and add in some hilarious confessions.

One of my favorite (and I am sure you will agree) projects is the PILLOW BUDDY!
(Two Part Tutorial: Part 1Part 2)


Hats off to this amazing woman for dealing with twin toddlers + one. I don't know if I could deal with two of my son, and I am not sure how she does it! But she does and that makes her one awesome blogger!

Natalie just started hosting a new feature called
All about the imperfect side of us! Things we have done that we might regret later and so that we might know that we are not alone in our monster moments. Check it out here.

Makes me feel less guilty already!

And last but certainly not least....

#5 Jessica of Running With Scissors

First of all...the name alone qualifies her as an awesome blogger. I mean really I love running with scissors ! Okay maybe I should not have admitted that here. 

(Disclaimer: Just joking there kids don't try that at home! You could poke an eyeball out and your mom would beat me cause eyes produce a lot of red stuff)

Jessica comes from a crafty family which includes her mother and sister. Not only does she sew but she does wood work, painting, etc...! You do not want to miss her furniture re-do's, sewing tutorials, and more!

She writes easy to understand tutorials too. Like this adorable pillow silhouette,
I made one of those for my mother for christmas from her TUTORIAL

& I can't forget that she and I share a love for owls. Just look at what she made her son! 

So that rounds up just a few of my AWESOME bloggers on my Google Reader. If you did not make the list don't worry. I love you too! I just did not want to overwhelm everyone! :D 

Who would you award an awesome blogger award to? Let me know! I may just need to check them out!

Don't forget to enter the 50 Fabulous Wishes contest for a chance to win $1,000 to support a friend's wish. I was selected for this Tropicana Trop50 sponsorship by the Clever Girls Collective, which endorses Blog With Integrity, as I do. I received compensation to use and facilitate my post.

Thank you SO much for including me on your list - you made my day :)

And now look at all of these other fantastic blogs I need to check out (I too love Elizabeth @12 Crafts by the way)!

I think it's fantastic that you focused on smaller's very generous of you! :)

And for the record, Natalie has a bigger following and is more popular on Twitter than me (i love my girl nat!) :) I do not deserve to be in the same sentence as Ree!
