Crafty Bloggers Unite 10/31/08

Blogged under Around the Web by Tammy on Friday 31 October 2008 at 8:03 am

Thanks to some of our talented craft bloggers, I have some new logos to pick from for my weekly round-up of blog links. This one was created by Aileen Roberts. It’s hard to decide which one to use, so I think I’ll use them both for this first “new logo” post, one at the top and one at the bottom of the list.

Margot Potter created the other logo, and what I think is very cool about them both is the fact that they are so completely different. In today’s world, being different is not usually considered a good thing; however, for artists and crafts-people, it is encouraged. Yeah! Thank goodness there are places for people like us to be accepted for who we are. Now onto some great links on Halloween, this last day of October. I hope you all have a spoo-tacular day! Boo!
