I love these sites!

 

Some of the sites I love to visit for inspiration and to see what others are doing. 

http://www.flamingotoes.com – a gorgeous crafting site, from clothing and home decor to bags and some cute toys.

http://www.goodhousekeeping.com – a useful site with some great tips on organising your house and diy decorating.

http://blog.effortless-style.com – totally fun site, great ideas for art works – I’m working on a collection of SA stamps for our hallway.

http://www.notmartha.org – run by Megan, this site has light-hearted feel to crafting.  Easy crafts with great photos and clear instructions, I’m in love with Megan’s Christmas tree!

http://www.mental-health-matters.com – a helpful site for me – it gave me good ideas on how to calm down my worked up 4-year-old.  Also made me feel normal, that I’m not completely useless at this parenting thing.

http://happychildfoundation.co.za – an organisation based in South Africa – they fundraise, feed and uplift communities.  All with the help of their Happy Bars.  They need help to get their foundation funding to continue their work.

http://www.4akid.co.za – great safety products for kiddies.  They have been very generous over the last year with donations of presents and party pack items for birthdays and Christmas.

http://www.safecosmetics.org – delicious diy beauty and makeup recipes.  So easy to use and something you can do with your sisters, daughters and friends.  Make a party of it!

http://www.rockyheath.co.za/ – a local lass, a friend of my sister-in-law.  Rocky does beautiful photos of pets as well as photos at our local SPCA of  those needing homes.  There is a scruffy one and a basset hound that are nudging my heart!

http://eatmytreats.blogspot.com – oh how I would love to meet Lauren.  She makes such gorgeous cakes and she also is super nice and puts her recipes on the blog.  With Lauren’s help I will be making my son”s “How to train your dragon”4th birthday cake.  I’m going to make the fondant and modeling chocolate myself – watch this space for updates on how well it turns out 🙂
