And no Jet Lag....

I just went on a major trip.....
blogland, blogosphere or whatever you want to call it but I just viewed 1,105 blogs over the span of about 3 weeks.

Thanks to Lisa over at A Whimsical Bohemian, the One World One Heart Adventure began. Crafters, artists amd bloggers all over the world had an open house (blog), introduced themselves and had door prizes and treats. From Malaysia, to Germany, to Australia to Brazil, there were 38 countries represented and it was really awesome to see how talented people are and generous with their time and handiwork.

And I am proud to say that I visited ALL of the links! Somehow, between kitchen renos and fighting the flu that took visited all three of us, I traveled. It also helped that I was bed bound for two days nursing and comforting a little one who slept 75% of the time during those two days. So, while it was great to meet new people, I do hope to win some things (if the truth be told!)

I definitely have some favorites (and somehow my "follow list" has like tripled!) and here they are. Check them out and delight in all the creative goodness!

The Felt Elf
ok, shut UP. Look at these scarves! I'd wear these everyday, even in 90+ weather. Might replace my shoe collection.

Salihan Crafts
I can't even describe what this fruit does to me!!! It's absolutely insane how a.d.o.r.a.b.l.e. these are and how I just want fruit everywhere.

This could be a problem...I'd have letters everywhere that my house might look like a stage from Sesame Street.

Coral Seas Jewelry
How awesome are these pendants? If we end up having the six kids we'd like, might make Mr. T run for his money with all the bling I'd have on.....

Whimsy Loft
def my spot to learn how to properly play with my socks, a new hobby perhaps?

Whimsy Girl
this girl had me from the nerd scrabble tile ring she was sporting....she makes mommyhood look like a ton of fun!

Zig Zag's This & That
another scarf obsession about to happen...

My Faerie Window
ok, how she made a cream puff even BETTER is beyond that's talent!

Most of these, if not all, have etsy shops so go visit them there!
