Check these out!

I have been roaming around blog land quite a bit lately and found some GREAT sites! From some freebie blog designs to a Everything Christmas blog! I've listed a few here for your enjoyment:

1. Blogger Boutique - A blogger that designs beautiful feminine backgrounds! And she has some great freebies that you can add as a widget instead of having to change your whole blog!! The one I have currently is one of her designs. And she JUST came out with a cute Christmas one! Either click the link above or find her blinkie on my side bar!

2. Tip Junkie - She has compiled an IMPRESSIVE list of all mom-preneurs that hand make everything from handbags to baby bows and candles to jewelry galore! She has a link to every single one that has signed up and it is an effort to support mommies that are trying to make a little something extra. She has them categorized for quick shopping and there are GREAT gift ideas among them! So if you are thinking about getting any shopping done early here is a great chance!

3. Celebrating Christmas - This blog was started from a women's event at a church. They have a Saturday event, that they call "Holidays Fit For a King" that starts with breakfast and then breaks into several workshops all about holiday "stuff". the "stuff" is anything from recipes and meal planning to decorating and grand parenting! This event had become such a big thing that the ladies that led workshops were overwhelmed by the aftermath of the event - ladies wanting more or ladies who couldn't attend wanting to know what they presented etc. So she created a blog! Designated to everything Christmas! There are traditions, recipes, stories, books, decorating ideas, anything you could imagine and it will run throughout the holiday season. So check it out the posts will be daily and there are already a few up!

4. Cutest Blog on the Block - One more blog with awesome backgrounds! Again there are great freebies and they are also attached as a widget so no information is lost and you can keep the text and color options! There are feminine as well as masculine designs on this one. And last time I checked there was a wide variety of freebies - 22 designs in all! So if you need an update check them out!
