Thanks for the blog list. Your Christmas card brings back memories. I also love the dollhouses, they are different from when I was young and you can install lighting. You can tell I have my eye on one of them. Blessings, Janet

I have to say that Two Crazy Crafters blog is full of colorful holiday cheer...of the vintage sort, of course!

Bonibleaux Designs said...

Well I just became a HUGE fan of the Tim Holtz blog and site. I was "dared" to join in his 12 Tags of Christmas contest and had so much fun that I am hooked on his tutorials and techniques. But I have to say one of my all time favorite places to visit is Papertrey Ink's Nichole Heady's Blog: she has just a clean sense of style and really awesome templates and tutorials.
