digital packrat

...that's what Cory calls me.
I get to looking at things on the computer...and I open websites & blogs in tabs...and I keep opening more tabs & more tabs...and when I have too many tabs open in that window...I open another window...and start opening more tabs.
It's a vicious cycle, and Cory thinks I'm nuts!
Then once every week or so, I revisit all my windows full of tabs, and I condense them. Or (this sounds so silly, and I can't believe I'm about to admit it to you)...but I compose an email to myself, usually titled "links" and I email myself. Yes. I know. I can't tell you how many emails I have from myself. It's ridiculous.
The reason I save most websites, is because I want to go back and finish reading something, or it had something cool (usually related to crafts, photography, or gardens), or a yummy looking recipe, or just a reminder to do something.
Ok, so right now I'm doing a little clean-up, and instead of writing an email to myself I thought I'd share a few random sites...
So there you go, a look at my cyber junk.

I email myself links ALL the time! I am so happy to hear someone else does it as well. Also glad to hear that you are addicted to something thanks to me...because I blame my addiction to Apartment Therapy and all of their sites on you! So here are a couple of of sites that I haven't added to my blog list, but I look at often:
