The Prettiest Blogs On The Web

In my search to improve my own blog, I've come across some really nice looking blogs by other people.

Here are some of my recent favourites, and why I like them.

http://www.chicchickmedia.com/
I like the dark print on the background contrasted with an easy-on-the-eye muslin and the curly design around the name. I also like the links under the banner. It's a well-put-together site, and a clever idea.

http://www.eightcrazy.blogspot.com/
This gal designed many of my favourite blog designs. She's very talented, huh? Check out her cool links which are BESIDE her banner. How did she do that? Each of her postings also has a little red bubble and arrow design- also blog-voodoo-magic!

http://monkeysmomma.blogspot.com/
I came across this blog today and I love the adorable monkey drawing and the matching monkeys on the background. Pretty cute, huh?

http://www.angiescircus.blogspot.com/
The green on this blog is easy on the eyes and she uses bows, fabric, and tags like on scrapbooks as titles to her different widgets. I like it.

This blog design is simple, but I like it. It is clean and I like the colour scheme. I also like the upside-down scalloping under her banner.

http://www.skiptomylou.org/
Skip to my Lou has more of a commercial site feel to it, but I love her banner image and I like the red links banner under it. I also like the stripes under her side banner links. Altogether very well-coordinated.

http://bakerella.blogspot.com/
Bakerella has a fairly simple blog design, but I love the pale pink colour against the white, and it really shows off her vividly coloured, delicious baked good images (which are always really big just in case your mouth isn't watering yet). I like the scalloped edging under her banner, which really goes with the bakery theme.

http://blog.caseybrowndesigns.com/
Casey's blog is perfectly themed for her frequent topics on sewing and fashion. I love how it is decorated with buttons and paper cut-outs, and how things are offset and "taped" to the page. It just looks really creative, and her blog is full of inspiration. I also like the link list at the top, and her blue and red theme.
