Make me happy BLOGS

Julie Holmes
I remember reading about blogs being a new trend among the trendy years ago.  I thought it was a funny word, I didn't understand the concept, and I thought....well...don't worry about what those youngsters are doing, it's got nothing to do with you.  Sometimes I think we're at our most "Old-fogey" in our 30's....and we get younger from there.  Anyhoo...I know what a blog is now, and I think they're fabulous for all ages and I'm sharing a couple of my favorites here with you today.

What I wore 2day.  This young recently engaged former United States Marine is a genius and an artist with clothing.  I find it mind boggling to watch her consistently look better on her (self proclaimed) worst days than I'll ever look on my best...and all while spending a fraction of the money.  I pretty much lurk on her blog because when it comes to fashion and style...well...let's just say I don't have anything intelligent to add to the conversation.  I like hearing about her life...seeing her grow as an athlete, in her career and plan for her future.  Did I mention that she wears fabulous jewelry?  Her name is Kasmira Kit and she inspires me.

EB Bead and Metal Works  This is a mother daughter team that creates unique and beautiful enameled copper pieces.  "Mom" (Evie) does the sawing...and sawing...and goodness that woman can pierce! Daughter Beth enamels and more.  Together these two have created a thriving business, gorgeous artwork and a strong family bond.  It's neat to see.

Blogs are fun, educational, sometimes heart wrenching but almost always entertaining.  I hope you are enjoying ours!

Thanks for sharing those, Julie! I'm heading over to check them out as soon as I finish this comment. I just started the 6th grade students on a blog site called They are all creating their own blogs and loving it (well.... most of the 60 are!)
