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 »

The What’s What: Because this is plush-toy-making, homeschooling Missouri mom Katie’s personal blog, you’ll find a lot of photos of her and her kids here. That wouldn’t be nearly as interesting if Katie didn’t have such an interesting clothing style, which she models and annotates. She also includes some homespun, simple DIY projects, like shiny pinecone Christmas ornaments or a nifty wire bow for a little hair flair.
The Mama: Katie, a Midwest mother of two — Hope, 9, and Poesy, 1 — who’s married to her high school sweetheart, makes her living sewing adorable hand-stitched plush animals (soft felt, colorful fabric, button eyes). Her aim, she writes, is to help her readers feel “inspired and encouraged.”
