Today I’m sharing some stuff I found around the internet. Enjoy! I don’t have time to watch TV anymore, but I’m still addicted to Ashley’s bachelor/ette recaps. If only I had time and money to complete all the online workshops I want to. This iPhone photography e-course would be perfect for me since my iPhone is currently my only camera. How to make a peg loom. I still have the loom I made with spare wood and nails, but I really like this method and looks like it’d be easier to do, too! I am dying over this DIY woven bench. We really need a couple benches in our house and all of the materials are so affordable. I really hope…

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…

just for fun craft inspiration

October 17, 2013

Here are a few ideas for “just for fun” crafts that I might try this month to fulfill one of my goals. They are all super simple and cute, so maybe I’ll get to all of them before too long! 1. himmeli – my hanging plant is dying so I want something to hang in its place and this looks cute. The straw version probably wouldn’t be significant enough for that spot but I’d like to try it first before I take on a bigger version like this. 2. sharpie-decorated mug – I’ve seen tutorials on this a bunch of places, but I really want to do it because I don’t have any fun mugs at all. 3. painted vase – I have a bunch of…

Women’s Novels

March 21, 2012

I just read this piece by Margaret Atwood on novels written for women versus men, and it is good, of course, but this one part stuck out to me and I had to share because YES: I no longer want to read about anything sad. Anything violent, anything disturbing, anything like that. No funerals at the end, though there can be some in the middle.
