New reads

I've stumbled across three new blogs recently that you may also enjoy.

One is a crafting blog - Lucy Jane Gallery
The writer is someone from my past life whom I've become re-acquainted with and is also just a fantastic all-around person whom I would love to spend some more time with in the future.  Although I gotta say, her blog could really stand to be updated more often.  However, with three kids, a husband who works and is also doing a PhD and her active involvement in the PTA, I'm guessing blogging is pretty low on her list.  She describes mother her young children as a vocation, and I just love the sound of that.

I stumbled across the Smitten Kitchen while looking for a replacement for my 24 inch 1960s era stove.  Lots of the posts are about cooking, but I particularly love the ones about kitchen organization.  http://smittenkitchen.com/2008/11/how-to-max-out-your-tiny-kitchen/

Finally, now that the girls are getting older, I'm feeling some inspiration to spruce up some areas of the house.  While our house isn't strictly a bungalow (it's really a Cape Cod bungalow turned lengthways with some elements of the Chicago style as well) the site American Bungalow also has some inspirational reading and forums.  I LOVE forums !  The site also has a blog roll, but in the interest of actually getting some work done, I haven't taken a look at those yet !

Stumbling across these things makes me realize that there are so many more topics that I would love to blog about on a regular basis.  I'm thinking about setting up a little schedule for myself to provide some self-motivation !

Happy Reading.
