My Family Members' Interesting Blogs

I thought I would take a minute to share some of the blogging work of some of my family members. I have found that each of my family members has very unique and interesting talents, and these blogs reflect the creativity of several members of my immediate family. Each blogger has his or her own interesting style, subject matter, and writing style, which you will note as you look at their blogs.

Old Days Old Ways - My mom is an incredibly thoughtful crafter, sewer, cook, and recycler of old things into new. This blog share MANY ideas and examples of super-interesting projects to work on and reflects her thrifty do-it-yourself attitude toward everything she does.

Obsessively Stitching - This sister has been blogging for several years now and literally has had millions of visits to her site. She share ingenious sewing and craft projects and shares easy-to-follow how-to projects. Lots of great resources. Here is her extremely popular set of posts on How to Sew Angry Bird Plushies.

Slant-O-Matic Fanatic - This sister began blogging just recently on a specific niche of the sewing world: vintage sewing machines. She shares her experiences with specific vintage sewing machine types. Very cool - she shares interesting photos, experiences, and sewing ideas..

J. Clark Gardner Portfolio - My brother Clark finished a master's degree in Educational Technology Leadership and has begun working at Babson College. He shares some of his projects here - some great videos and multimedia, including this set of videos describing the ADDIE Process of instructional design.

The EdTech Dojo - Clark and I also work on the EdTech Dojo where we share our ideas and innovations related to instructional design and educational technology. We have posted on many topics and also share periodical podcasts on many instructional design and technology topics.
