Crumpet's Top Blogger of the Year Is ..........

Number 1 ….. Chalkboard Nails

Hi Goddesses

So here we are … Number 1 …… da da DAH …. Sarah from Chalkboard Nails.

I know this will be a popular choice with many of you.  Sarah is insanely talented, makes me sick with envy and just makes it look *effortless*. 

Sarah’s blog is a masterpiece of design.  She has a photography major and because of this, everything is simple, clean and crisp.  There is nothing there that shouldn’t be, no clutter.  Joni Mitchell once said “the most important lyrics are the ones you leave out of the song”, and Sarah’s blog is the visual equivalent of that – pure, distilled photo-artistry.

She is possibly the best photographer out there, as you’d expect, and I love that she has her own recognised hand shape.  I love that sometimes she doesn’t do very complicated stuff at all, stuff that’s so simple and obvious that you just think Arrrggghh, why haven’t I done that before.

She also does complicated stuff.  She’s a great nail artist too, and probably the blogger who developed the most by doing the 31 day challenge – go back into her blog history and check those posts out, some of them are uh-mazin’!

Sarah is also my polar opposite in that she is a perfectionist.  She always has a clear idea of what the art should look like, and if it doesn’t, will do the nail again, and again, until it looks good.  Me, I just slap it on and hope for the best, but Sarah makes sure it always IS the very best she can be.

Sarah – we love you.  What an amazing year, and I can’t wait to see what you come up with in 2012.

For now – fill your eyes with this, the very best of Sarah’s year.

Enjoy xxx
