Here are some things I've been thinking about/looking at/reading this week:
I have been a daily reader of Emily's blog Jones Design Company for many months now. She has a great sense of style that I love. Beautiful (but doable) tutorial for projects like the above pin. She had a great tutorial for scarf tying that I've received many compliments due to her instruction! (and as a BONUS she has fun and gorgeous monthly giveaways!)
I get a TON of inspiration for parties from Kate Landers Events. The parties she creates and/or features are stunning...yet full of ideas that are able to be interpreted for your own (not-so-magazine-picture-perfect) parties. She also has a darling shop where I ordered this apron for Hadleigh. The apron was so much more than I was even hoping. The quality of workmanship is outstanding, and I just LOVE the fabric.
I am thinking about ordering Project Life when it's available at Amazon again later this month. I love the idea of capturing everyday life throughout the year in a manageable project. Trying to decide whether to just do the digital option or the hands-on scrapbook. I'll let you know.
Have you read Susie Davis' blog? I discovered it around Thanksgiving...and it's a daily stop for a little encouragement and fun. Susie is lovely. After reading her blog for awhile, I got her book The TIme of Your Life: Finding God's Rest in Your Busy Schedule. I have devoured it. I'm almost done, and I love the introspective questions at the end of each chapter. She has a great perspective on time...and I'm soaking it up. A definite read-again.
I love this Local Branch Library Cart from Land of Nod. It comes in red, espresso, and white...and I can't decide which I love most. (The red would have worked perfectly in our nurseries...but alas, no more nursery.) I'm trying to figure out a way to make this work in our office/school room. I love the idea of keeping current library books on it...and such good rollable storage! Hmmm.... And I found this site that has plans for a DIY inspired by the Land of Nod version!
I know, totally random post, right? Hope you enjoyed it anyway!
Have a great weekend!
