  6. Blade Rubber Blog: Susie from Blade Rubber Blog in the UK has some fascinating posts on this blog. There is lots of great stuff about stamping, but you also find other interesting things like patterns for a crocheted dolls dress and a crocheted donut that could become a pin cushion.  I also found a highly useful article about punch art and how to maintain your punches when they stick.

There are so much great blogs about crafting on the Net that its difficult to choose just one.
