Connecting through Blogs

The Creative Family. How to Encourage Imagination and Nurture Family Connections.
by Amanda Blake Soule.
Doesn't that book look good?? I might have to buy it!
I found it on a blog I was reading called Soulemama. She wrote the book! How cool is she! She also sells her crafts here.

here are some of the blogs I now enjoy reading that are written by women who are artists and moms:Click on the name of the blog and it will take you to the blog so you can see how cute these are........
Superhero designs is one of my all time favorite blogs and she is one of my favorite people on the planet. She lives in the San Francisco area and makes and sells fabulous jewelry, and is a photographer, used to be a life coach, and is a mom of her baby Ben. She writes letters to Ben on her blog, Talks about the inner struggle of being an artist and human being on the planet. I love how she writes, how she lives her life, and how open she is. I have one of her superhero pendants. I wear it often.
I want to meet her.
My friend Mary Catherine. Used to live in LA- just moved to Brooklyn with her husband and new baby Matilda. She is a writer, photographer and comedian.
Girl gone child is a gal who lives in LA who used to be a rocker chick who got pregnant on accident - and decided to keep the baby - marry the guy - and then she wrote a book about it - a blog - and is now pregnant with baby number 2 - on purpose. She takes a photo of her belly each week and posts it on her blog. I love that.

and some I want to look into more:
This blog is inspiring. The photos make me stop in my tracks. The art she makes is delightful. She writes books, stitches, sews, knits, it seems her entire life is a work of art.
Gluten free girl is someone I need to read for inspiration on food, and she just had a baby. she posts about both. Her baby stopped breathing right after she was born so it was a pretty hard story to read, but she is home now and breathing.
