Linky Link Day!




I read a tonne of blogs & have learnt such a huge amount in my relatively brief relationship with the internet, that sometimes I feel like my head is going to explode! I like to share & want to "give back" too, so I "do my bit" here on my blog but at times I can't help but feel seriously inadequate. There are such rocking blogs out there that mine feels miniscule by comparison, but I 'spose we all have to start somewhere right? I am just glad that I have begun this journey...it is definitely the road I want to be on.

I have some INCREDIBLE links to share with you today. This girl is a phenomenon. Her site is PACKED full of information & she only set up her blog a few months ago. She knows EVERYTHING about EVERYTHING from scrapbooking, to photography, to publishing, you name it, she can tell you how to do it...follow her if you really want to get to know your stuff...and check out those links in her side-bar...awesomeness in the extreme!!! And the layout of that blog...phew...I think it may have converted me to Typepad. Not now, but I think that day is coming...

Okay, next up is this blog. Now I'm no stamper, but these stamps could win me over, if only you could get them here. Or anywhere for that matter. They appear to be tricky to get hold of. Even from them! I have had a bit of correspondence & not made much headway but the blog makes for a great quickie looksee every few days & there is an awesome amount of talent hanging around there, by way of their design team & their guest designers. Even without pressing a stamp to paper ever, you would benefit from keeping an eye on that blog.

Now this blog is inspiring! If you read the tabs at the top & get the background you may just be hooked like me! And if you're starting to dabble in hybrid, then there is a free download weekly! Okay, lately it's been very American in theme so not really usable in my neck of the woods, but that's just due to this time of the year, with Thanksgiving & Halloween not being widely celebrated in Africa. Kollette works for BPS & I would love to take one of her classes "in another life" {ie:- when I have the time}.

Now for a manufacturer I am just loving right now. These folk have some great simple designs. So versatile. Of course can't get any of them here either but anyhoo...you know I always make a plan & I have one cooking on this one too! Now you know a post isn't really a post without a photo, so here it is, courtesy of the Colour Lovers blog...



I know what you're thinking...what has a clock got to do with anything, but I just thought it was great, especially when you realise that you can see the numbers {well, the 12, 3, 6 & 9 anyway} in there...pretty cool if you ask me...

I've always loved Erin Clarkson's work in SBE and I am so glad to know she has started a blog. I'll read it from the beginning and am definitely adding it to my blogroll. Thanks for that. I've been finding loads of new great blogs/sites lately. I just wish I had time to do pages with all the inspiration I'm getting from them!

Great, I've even been swayed to add one of those links to my Bloglines - and that doesn't happen lightly these days. I even found completely different interest to what you mention - but hey, that's cool too.thanks.

Thanks for all the inspirational links ... off to have some peeps. Now that clock is real cycadellic (?spelling), but fun I must say.
Hugs

LS I've only just discovered Erin because I don't subscribe to SE & have never seen it here. Glad the link post seems to be a hit - just hope I don't forget which links I've already told you about! I shouldn't be hunting down new links with my reading list as it is but I just constantly find new sites that grab me!

Thanks for the links, Helen. Don't know what I'd do without people like your good self, because I never get the time to randomly surf for stuff.
