SHOUT OUT - to my favourite Bloggers & You Tubers

Hi folks! 
I hope you are all having a fantastic day! The sun has been shining here today and I've been and stocked up on gorgeous lace trims in my local sewing shop! A mixed media girl can never have to much! 
I just wanted to take a step away from showcasing my own creations to give a shout out to the fellow Bloggers, and You Tubers that all brighten up my day in some way or another! 
Please remember that this list is potentially never ending and not every blog or you tube channel that I've ever visited could be listed here. 
So, to those listed here, and not listed here, please accept my sincere thanks for the inspiration you've given me; For every tutorial, tip or long rambling video that I love so much (yes, I'm serious!). For giving me a brief peek into your lives.  Thankyou for sharing your art and your creations with me. I know the time it takes to put blog posts together and can only imagine that shooting and posting you tube videos is a similar, if not much longer, process! 
Just for info, I have put a few key words in brackets after each link, summarising what they do and / or my reason for loving them! 
NOTE: A note stating "lots of talking" in videos is NOT a criticism! I love videos that are in real time with talking about the persons thought processes and / or mentions about other things going on in their life.
