Tuesday’s Top Blogs According to Jade Louise Designs

Welcome to Tuesday’s Top Blogs! Come and discover some new and interesting blogs. Each week I will feature a different person and ask them to list their five favourite blogs and why they like them. This week, I’m pleased to have Amber from Jade Louise Designs joining us.

When I began blogging, I wasn’t really planning on being a “blogger”. I was merely looking for a new platform where I could promote my hand created fashion accessories for my Etsy store, “JadeLouise Designs”. I really struggled getting started until I discovered Voiceboks.com and the amazing community of women bloggers there helped me to get my blog off the ground and I discovered I really liked blogging!

From then on, JadeLouise Designs blog took a dramatic turn from promoting my etsy creations to being a Family Friendly Hodgepodge blog! Literally, I love writing and sharing so many different subjects I just couldn’t stick with one! We often share stories of our family, adventures we take, fun family activities, and we also share our trials and successes!

I am a Stay at home, full time homemaker mom, so I also love sharing homemaking skills, tried and family loved recipes, adventures in Cloth diapering, and more! We also feature weekly inspirational Sunday Devotionals where other blogs can link up their inspirational posts.

JadeLouise Designs also focuses on living frugally, eco-friendly, and green! I focus on high quality and thorough product reviews and I always love hosting Giveaways of which we usually have at least 5-10 different giveaways open for entry at any given time.

Everything you find on JadeLouise Designs is Family Friendly, as I often have my kids reading over my shoulder as I write, so we pride ourselves in never having content which would be questionable and I wouldn’t want my kids to see.

Favourite blogs…

A Thrifty Diva: A Thrifty Diva was one of the first blogs I ever visited after joining Voiceboks.com community. She had great tutorials on how to improve your blog, and she was the blog that really helped me decide that I wanted to add Product reviews and Giveaways to JadeLouise Designs. She gave me a great starting base on how to learn where to discover products, how to contact companies, and how to proceed into the unknown of this great adventure!

Michele has also become a great friend, and she’s taught me so much about blogging, I always love visiting A Thrifty Diva to see what new adventure she is up to!

The Crazy Life of a Writing Mom:  I first discovered The Crazy Life of a Writing Mom when I signed up to review her book “The Golden Sky”. I started visiting her blog so I could learn more about Elisa and I was immediately hooked. She has a humorous way to write about every day life, and she always draws me into her stories! She’s become a great blogging friend, and I love visiting her blog daily!

My Dishwasher’s Possessed: I fell in love with My Dishwasher’s Possessed just by reading the name! I mean really! How can you not love and relate to a blog with such a unique and humorous name? Kathy is an amazing writer who shares humorous and serious life lessons all in one! She blogs about being a mother to her children and the trials and adventures she lives, including the trials she faces with her daughter who has development struggles. She has a unique way with words that touches your heart with each weekly post, and I always feel inspired and uplifted each week that I visit!

Rise Above Your Limits: Rise Above Your Limits is a Christian based blog that focuses on Family values, faith, and raising her children and grandchildren, gardening/landscaping, living with physical disabilities, and humor, which as Becky Jane says is the best medicine!

Becky Jane is an inspiration in her outlook of life even though she has plenty that she COULD complain about, but she always has such a positive outlook on life, faith and everything surrounding her! She has also become a wonderful Blogging friend and I always leave her blog feeling inspired and feeling like I can tackle the world!

Made by Marzipan: Made By Marzipan is one of my favorite Craft blogs! Maureen was actually a great friend of mine after we moved back to Idaho and it wasn’t until a few months ago that I discovered she ran Made By Marzipan! I started seeing these amazing products that she was creating and we started chatting about it as I wanted to learn, and I discovered that she ran Made By Marzipan, which is a craft blog with FREE VIDEO tutorials for every accessory and home furnishing item she created and I fell in love with! I love visiting often to get ideas and step by step instructions on how to create the most amazing organization, fashion and home decor items!
