Whether you’re a seasoned DIYer or just a beginner, Babble’s third annual Top 50 Mom Craft Blogs will inspire you. The moms on this list offer an incredible variety of ideas for DIY crafts and accessories to try with the kids — or by yourself. (Don’t worry: we won’t tell anyone how easy most of them actually are!) Thanks to our panel of craft lovers and industry insiders, you’ll see some new names on this list along with old favorites. And if we missed a crafty mom you love, please nominate it in the comments. Glue guns at the ready! — Amy Reitersee the full list »

23. Kaley Ann
The What’s What: Not only will you be impressed by the beautiful pics on this blog (which is run by a photographer), you’ll also be inspired by projects like a sparkly, calming “magic jar” and tips for green-ifying your life by doing things like making your own eco-friendly laundry detergent (only three ingredients!).
The Mama: Lifestyle photographer Kaley Ann is the sort of San Francisco mom who makes out of “a few boxes of cornstarch, some shaving cream, and some materials from our treasure box” when daughter Avery mentions she wants to see some. Then Kaley Ann will happily help her make snowmen “from the comfort (and warmth) of our living room.” Don’t be jealous; she’s happy to show you how, so you can at least pretend to be that kind of mom too.
