My stalking list has gotten so long that I've given up updating my blog links so that people know who I'm stalking. Now I just do it in secret. :)

Although...I consider myself Shannon's #1 stalker. :lol:

Well I don't have anyone I necessarily "stalk" but I do check in regularly on quite a few blogs and CT boards. :D

Urgh! I have a large list of people who's blogs I stalk! Kim Christensen, Misty Mareda, Gina Miller, Meredith Fenwick, and lots more too! Designers I stalk and buy almost everything from would have to be Cheryl Barber from ScrapGirls :D

I scrap 8.5 x 11 and there aren't many of us out there. Novita is on my list! She does wondrous things with an 8.5 x 11 page. Jodie1967 for the same reason. Designers.......the list grows daily, but always "my designers" (those whose CT's I'm on) and Tracy Ann. Can't get enough....... Marci

I have more than 150 blogs in bloglines. I think that makes me a stalker. :) They know who they are!!!

You know who I stalk? I stalk former shabby elements creative team member Lucrecer Braxton (http://lubell1.blogspot.com/). I think she is the coolest thing since sliced bread. She's a rennaisance woman with so many artistic talents, digital and otherwise, and a sweet spirit to boot.

Julie
07-16-2006, 09:43 AM
I'm with Marci on this one cuz I scrap 8.5x11 too, so 1967jodie and Nisha are at top of list. And I have quite a few others in my BOS too, but Jodie and Nisha are where I usually look first.

Blogs - Gina Miller, Ange Dawn, Kim Christensen and Holly McCaig are daily stops.

Scrappers - I don't necessarily stalk any, but if I am in need of inspiration for a good white space LO, I always hunt down one of Gail Zeak's galleries. Love her stuff!

Designers - Heather Ann and Gina Cabrera

I have a few galleries I stalk: Natalie Braxton, CD, Kim Hendricks, Amy Martin (there are others, these just popped into my head...) and my new gallery to stalk is Angie's (Angelbq). She has an incredible eye for color and design.

I have around 170 people on my bloglines :D
But I always look for LOs from Natalie B., Amy M. and Jenn Olson. Lately, Im loving the LOs done by Nevache (Gerarda). Of course, I always stalk Gina Miller - but then she knows that as well :D She's a great designer and a fab scrapper :)


Honestly, I stalk sooooo many people, in a sense, I read blogs but hardly ever comment, the few I commented were really nice people who e-mailed back and Id like to think we're becoming online digi friends :D

I know what you mean! I love to buy from so many designers, and I have a large blogline, plus there are so many new to me designers since i've been active here - we're just spoilt for choice hehe.

I stalk pretty much everyone...ask the girls at BSD (http://butternugsquash.com/phpBB/index.php)!

As far as blogs, I check Motherhood Unscripted (http://www.motherhood-unscripted.com/), Sarcastic Journalist (http://shenuts.com/), and Dad Gone Mad (http://www.dadgonemad.com/) daily. They make me laugh uncontrollably...OFTEN. I try not to go looking for more 'cause there are so many great ones out there and if I visited them all, I'd NEVER stop reading and 1. wouldn't scrap as much and 2. wouldn't sleep EVER!

Melany :)

I stalk Jacque (http://www.thedigichick.com/gallery/showphoto.php/photo/8542/cat/640) who is on the CT for TDC. She totally rocks! Her layouts are always perfect!

Robin Carlton
07-16-2006, 05:12 PM
I stalk Jen Wilson (I know, Im on her team, but I still stalk JWD, SBB and her blog every day to see what shes been up to).

I also stalk Summer Simmons...cant get enough of her stuff and she's so new, Ive convinced myself I can collect it all since I am getting in on her goodies before shes ammassed a years worth of designs.

and honestly, I think I am pretty stalkerish when it comes to forums and emails too as I seriously stalk the forums here and at SSD and check my mail neurotically.

I stalk all my Ct members... try to bounce in on their blogs once or twice a week and leave them a little love! :)

And I like to stalk people who visit my blog. Link back to their blogs, and see what's up with them! :)

Oh, and all my other Sweet Shoppe Designers. Try to make the rounds there too at least once or twice a week! :) And, then all my old Digi Chick designers... well lets say that I have quite a few people that I stalk!

07-16-2006, 05:59 PM
I have toooo many to name. I started using the bloglines and before that I had no idea how many blogs I was reading but I think I have 270 or something!

LauraKaye
07-16-2006, 06:06 PM
I'm stalking all of you - so watch your back!! LOL. I couldn't stop cracking up when I saw that Peta had stolen Traci's identity up above!

scrappinsweetie
07-16-2006, 06:11 PM
I SoOOO stalk Dani Mogstad and Tracy Ann Robinson! OMG, those 2 girls just totally amaze me!!! I blog some people too, but for the most part these 2 ladies have me checking every single day!

Shannon
07-16-2006, 10:00 PM
Although...I consider myself Shannon's #1 stalker. :lol:

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: You poor thing. You must be the most bored stalker out there. No blog updates, no new layouts. I'm really a dull one to stalk these days aren't I? :lol:

07-17-2006, 02:40 AM
Burberrygirl (Michelle) - I visit her blog everyday and I don't blog. I've also never left a comment so I guess that definitely labels me as a "stalker".

hottytoddySummer
07-17-2006, 06:46 AM
awe Robin you made my day :D :D

I'm not much of a digital stalker but I must go to weewonderfuls.com everyday to see if there is any good inspiration for colors

09-15-2006, 10:47 AM
Awww, D!!! I just read this thread and you are so cool to say that. I love checking your stuff out too and just about any of the ScrapArtist chics. I also love me some Holly McCaig. Just a bunch of dyno-MITE talent.

Amanda Heimann (aggiefamily)
09-15-2006, 10:58 AM
I stalk Misty Mareda. She is on my Bloglines but I still make sure I check her blog everyday in case Bloglines missed it.

I did stalk Christy Lyle but I think she got a little scared and just went ahead and invited me to be on her team.

I don't read blogs and I don't go to any stores unless there is an announcement posted here or I see a layout with a specific product that I want to investigate closer.

I'm pretty busy as is. I just cannot afford wasting my time going from blog to blog and store to store to see what's new.

So, um, what was the coolest thing before sliced bread?! I always wondered about that.

I am currently stalking Lukas Rossi. On the internet anyway.

As far as digi designers, I am an equal opportunity stalker. I even stalk myself, and I am very annoying! It's always, "So Tracy? Got anything new yet?!" Very annoying.

DANG!!! Jana's snappin' on us! :) I wish I had her kind of discipline, yes I do!!!

As it is, me and my undisciplined self spend my time stalking Michelle Coleman. I go to the "new products" page at Scrapartist multiple times a day and check her blog multiple times, since I don't have any other way to stalk. I've been thinking Utah might not be such an bad place...

possum[/B] ]the guy down the road - he's so hot...
Well the guy I stalk isn't down the road ... he isn't even in the COUNTRY anymore LOL

I claim to be Amanda Rockwell's 1st stalker LOL. I have known her since well before she was even a designer. She is super sweet and puts up with me ... even let me be on her CT.

I stalk a few blogs (but I never leave comments either so now one really knows I am there LOL):
Gina Miller (of course who DOESN'T read her blog)
Ashley Olsen (I was totally feeling her pain this summer, but never really told her)
Traci Reed (http://thescrapmommy.typepad.com), Amy Bleser (http://bytesoflove.typepad.com/bytes_of_love/), Angi Jones (http://bzymom13.blogs.com/) & Maria La France (http://mariainct.blogspot.com)
There are more on my home computer I am sure!!

I rarely buy anything, my funds are too low to keep collecting stuff. I wish I could buy EVERYTHING from so many designers.
A few of my favs that I used to get to work with on CT's but don't now:
Nikki Meador
Lauren Grier
Anita Stergiou

And a few of my fav's that I just drool over:
Dani B (I love her new freestyle stitches w/ the template ... they are on in my wishlist at SBB)
HuniBuni (haven't been able to get any of her stuff in a while - but I still love it)
Jen Wilson (but of course)
Michele Coleman (fell in love with some of her papers that I won and have seriously been itching for more)

No Kellie, I'm not snappin' on anyone. ;) I simply need to prioritize and reading blogs isn't on top of my list to do. Trust me, if I had time ... there are a number of blogs I'd love to read.

The time factor is also a reason why I am so thankful for this site. I see the entire daily dish in one place including announcements and latest layouts.
