Crafty Android apps for Crochet

Part two of my favourite apps for my new Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 tablet is craft apps for crochet.

One hobby that I don't share as much here is my love of crochet. If you look at my Pinterest boards or you follow me on there, I'm sure you'll have noticed that 90% of my pins are crochet patterns. So of course the first craft app I had to share here is Pinterest. The Pinterest app is easy to navigate and with the clarity this screen gives, its easy to browse and read patterns on my tablet - my tablet is now my go to device for reading online patterns over my phone and laptop!

This next app might seem like an odd choice to include in a crafty apps list - but without this app I wouldn't be able to crochet, so I feel it is essential to this list... did you guess? It's Youtube. What would I do without Youtube?! The variety of beginner crochet videos, pattern videos and stitch videos on Youtube makes crochet seem much less daunting to me and watching others is a great way to learn. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 surprised me with a great set of speakers and this combined with my little stand case (I had to get one) makes watching videos and practicing new skills so easy.

This last app is new to me - but boy am I glad I found it. Stash2go is an app that allows you to access Ravelry with easy navigation (as you can see above) to projects, favourites and the huge library of patterns available of Ravelry. Its a shame that Ravelry don't have their own app but as someone who spends a lot of time on Ravelry, I'm happy that there is a app that provides easy and quick access.

New month... new sponsors!

It's July! Can you believe that?! I have no idea where June went but there you go... here we are. And a new month here, now means new sponsors! How awesome is that - people actually took me up on the offer for sponsoring!! I'm still in shock. But I'm equally as chuffed too.

First up - is a new blog find for me - Foreign Geek! I'm really pleased that taking on sponsors is bringing unexpected benefits like discovering new blogs to read as I often feel like I'm in a blog reading rut.  I'm even more pleased that I already love this blog - if you love travelling, food, discovering new places and exploring the world, then you will love this blog!

So far my favourite posts I've read so far are:

Next up is a blog I am familiar with and so excited to be sharing here as a sponsor. I first remember Laura from Day Dreaming Foodie taking part in one of my photo swaps - she took the most lovely photos of horses (I love photos of horses!) and I've been reading her blog ever since.

Laura has a great food and lifestyle blog, sharing recipes, her experiences dining out and any exciting revelations in the foodie world - as her blog title would suggest - as well as her lovely photos of her life in Northern Ireland.

Some of my recent favourite posts have been:

So there you are - my first month's sponsors on For the easily distracted... I hope you enjoy looking around these blogs as much as I have.
 

If you're interested in sponsoring For the easily distracted... you can find more information here - I still have 4 spaces left including two especially aimed at bloggers who may not have sponsored a blog before and are wary of spending a lot of money (ad number 3). I'm delighted to say that my audiences across all platforms (blog, twitter, instagram, pinterest etc...) is continuing to grow and I love putting together this kind of post - so please check out my sponsor page or email me (rhiannelouise@gmail.com) if you have any questions.
