It is all about the artistry for me. Okay, on most blogs. There are some blogs that I go to for personal reasons but it is usual about the artwork!

Thea said...

the one thing I enjoy most when I visit blogs is new ideas to use. I keep a notebook and write down things like color combos, sketch layouts, unique uses of objects and ideas. I love blog surfing and getting ideas for my cards!

Congrats on the hits!

I love seeing all of the "Blogs I frequent" listed on the side of the blogs. I often will looses endless time blog hopping, just by starting at 1 blog and seeing who they are inspired by. My goal...to someday find my own blog on someone's list!!!

I also really enjoy looking at the custom headers on the blogs!

Denise said...

One thing? Gosh, that's difficult. There are so many things. I guess the thing I like most is seeing something new or unique whether it's a card layout, color combo or technique.

My favorite thing is seeing the cards! I can't believe how many people make cards yet how many different ways the same stamp can be used. Ideas you see and think "OMG I can't believe I haven't thought of that!" then run off to your stamping room to create! Such inspiration!!

I love seeing all the fresh ideas posted when I read a blog. Everyone is so generous with posting their tutorials, supplies, etc. making it as easy as possible to CASE (thank God!). Great blog candy and great work on your own blog. Kim

SherryBee said...

oh, gee. when I visit a blog, I end up feeling like I've just made a new friend!
A lady once told me (see, I'm old and can tell these kind of stories now---HA!) that everyone has a 'story'.....listen to them. I find that the stories can be on blogs nowadays, too! I LOVE that!
I am a blog LOVER and I'm so glad we have them. I love to see everyone pictures....just like looking at someones photo albums in days gone by.
Thanks for the fun try at your blog candy.
Stay warm and toasty!

The CARDS are what attract me most! I love to see what others create and the different styles, stamps, and pizazz they use. Thanks for a chance at your wonderful blog goodies:)

Anonymous said...

I have only been stamping for about six months so for me I look to the blogs of other talented ladies to learn something new, or for inspiration. One of the biggest problems in my small home is storage, and I just got the best storage ideas of the blog of a fellow bellaholic. She showed a photo a a very cute, ( and very organized ) armoire used as a stamping/ scrapbooking station. Brilliant!!! I never would have thought of such a wonderful solution.

I'm all about the cards. I don't scrapbook so I breeze by layouts. I stop when I see beautiful, but not difficult, card designs and easier altered items.

dudleychicks said...

Hi Sistah Katie,

Ohhh, Blog candy and it's Bella candy, what could be better. I have added your blog to my favorites because I love your creativity, but what I also love about you is that you (like me) don't always just post the same things. I can see Bellas, CTMH, Stampin Up, Scrapbooks, Cards, papercrafts, and all of the things I love too! You're blog inspires me to be creative.

Lisa said...

When I visit one of my favorite blogs (like this one) and I get inspired by something I see, I especially like the "recipe". I want to know what color inks, what brand of paper, etc. was used so that I can go get the items that I MUST have. Wait, maybe I just like the enabling aspect of it. :O)

Melissa said...

What I like most in visiting a blog is seeing everyone's creations.

Susan said...

I love other people's art work! I go to blogs to get inspired and I never leave feeling like I wasted my time. I'm envious of the time others have to stamp so it helps me sort of organize my time better so when I get to stamp, I'm ready and looking to give back to the people who inspire me. Thanks for the opportunity for the candy. Don't have to worry about going to the dentist this way! Congrats on the hits!

CAKVD said...

Great candy! I really enjoy looking at other peoples' creations when I go to their blog. I especially like new techniques and tutorials on how they made those creations. Thanks!

I enjoy going to blogs for a few reasons. First, I enjoy seeing everyones work. There are some very talented ladies in this world & to have them share is just wonderful. Second, I enjoy blogs because I feel like I am a friend to most bloggers. The way most bloggers write just reaches out & makes me feel warm & fuzzy, lol. I enjoy hearing about others lives also.
Congrats on the hits!! Thanks for blogging also.

marcia said...

I love to check out the creativity and different ways people thinkt o use the same items!

Bluemoon said...

Congrats on your many blog hits!!
I get to see all new stamps used on every card or project that I wouldn't normally get to see or even known they existed (very kewl), and I have learned about new stamp companies. It's all food for thought LOL. Of course I enjoy every single creation I see, I receive much inspiration. Thank you. bluemoonbynite@yahoo.com

Lori Barnett said...

oh oh oh oh oh oh!!! I TOTALLY WANT THIS STUFF! LOL What I like about looking at blogs is that if like friendships. And sharing with everyone is so fun! Of course I love the creations...but without the "personal" side that goes with it it just seems like another card. So looking at pictures of everyone, their family, their other interests, etc. makes it all that much better. You know...like how YOU are peeking out at us in YOUR pic! LOL :)
