Big button flower giveaway.

I told you...
I like big buttons and I cannot lie.
But I also cannot stop making these messy flowers.

How would you like a set of three?
A pin,
a hair clip,
&

I want to know what blogs you love to read.
I have a little button on my sidebar that says "avoiding housework".
It was my intention to put my blogroll there.
But I haven't gotten around to it, and I need a little help.

So leave me a link to your most favorite blogs in the comment section.
I will spend the weekend clicking away as I fill up my 
bookmark folder with new and inspiring blogs as nominated by you.

Then on Monday I will pick a winner of this 
big button messy flower extravaganza.

Link away!
