What's your favorite blog?

The new challenge is up today at These are a Few of my Favorite Things and it is to show us your favorite blog or website - I so love the layouts and choices by the other DT members - TAAFOMFT, etsy, Sarah's own blog, and some others - fun stuff!!!!!
I have several favorites and it was very hard to pick just one, but I decided on Posie Gets Cozy. I always love to read Alicia Paulson's ramblings about sewing, crocheting, cooking, baking, and visiting in her city of Portland and other nearby spots. Her blog truly brightens my day - but -
In the mornings it is always Soulemama with her inspiring adventures in childrearing, home schooling, knitting, adventuring, beach combing, cooking, and just plain living! Her blog always brightens my morning by reminding of the truly important things in life.
I haven't been blogging much as things in my life are a little jumbled right now. Hopefully we will get some good news today, and if not, well, we will just have to deal with it. I am off to my painting class in just a few minutes - 2 hours of playing with paints, paper, and water; and no thoughts about other things.
I hope to be back tomorrow or at least by Sunday with some pix of ScrapGal layouts, knitting projects, a new painting, and some Gecko Galz projects (I just received the rest of the 2010 releases of the papers, ephemera, digistamps, buttons, and charms; and it's all wonderful!!!!!!) I really love how "green" Gecko Galz is because the papers and ephemera come in digi-form on a cd so I can use them either digi or I can print out just the ones I want.  I have to admit that the sheer non-greenness of scrapping sometimes bothers me - so much waste paper and packaging - and even when I use packaging on my layouts, there is still a lot that gets thrown in the trash.
Thanks so much for reading my blog and hope everyone has a great week.

p.s. The news is good!!!! Dan is cancer-free - he will be tested again in 3 months.

Also - not sure what is going wrong with Blogger but my comments are going to Never Never Land so I changed some of the comment settings and hopefully they will appear.
