Toronto blogs I like

I've been horrid about keeping up. School's been a bit of an adjustment to say the least. I've not been keeping up with looking at as many things online as well... who would have thought I could miss temping. So I thought I would share some blogs that I've found by Toronto based creatives. Also Toronto Craft Alert has a link to lots of Toronto blogs.
