link roundup / 2

May 9, 2014

Today I’m sharing some stuff I found around the internet. Enjoy!

> somehow I always end up with more craft supplies than I need. It’d be fun to take this crash course to get ideas on how to use up what I have.

> a lovely anecdote + thoughts about eating at the table, something that is so important to me.

> did you know that Craftsy offers some free mini classes? I didn’t! I signed up for the basic quiltmaking one.

> something serious for you if you’re up for it: a raw and honest update my friend Nora wrote on her feelings of grief as she processes her mother’s death.

> and something totally not serious: hamsters eating tiny burritos. Ahhhh

> have you heard of the free app Artkive? It’s a place to store photos of your kids’ artwork, which you can then make books out of. I have a stack of Meredith’s “art” that I intend to one day photograph, and I like that I could have a dedicated place to store it.

>I’m in love with this photo/story book. It looks intense to make but so special.

>breakfast casserole is my love language.

>two home diy’s that I want to try: a hanging mirror and three-tier indoor rope planter

>I am just obsessed with this dress, I want it sooo bad! I don’t think it’ll ever happen though.

>more and more I want to try art journaling

That was a lot of artsy links this time around. I must need a creative outlet! I hope I can fit something in this weekend. I think for Mother’s Day I might just ask for a couple hours off. If only I could have a couple hours where my kids would just play happily in the same room as me without demanding anything from me…then it would be perfect. :)

    Oh, friend. Thank you for including me in today’s post.

    The hamsters eating tiny burritos? Genius. Excellent way to start a Friday!

    Hope you have a great mother’s day and that you do get some time to yourself =)

    From Lauren W:

    I saw that pink ronnie photo book on your Pinterest, it is beautiful! I can’t imagine what I would want to include though other than what I already include in project life. But it was beautiful enough to make me think maybe I want to switch back to digital. :)

    Neat journal and photo book links!

    You’ve got the perfect mother’s day idea-time for yourself while still being with your people! I’ve never been able to put that wish into words as well as you did!
