It has been a while since I did a link-post, and I’m going random on this one. But I just thought you should go over to my friend, Laura’s blog and check out her tutorials. She is so creative, and I’m really glad she started sharing some of the things she makes. I’m particularly impressed with her bows that she makes for gifts. They are so perfect! Plus, her blog has cute baby pictures on it and plays songs I like. What’s not to love?
And on the topic of tutorials, I found this one a few months ago of a play kitchen that you can make yourself and looks even better than the plastic ones that sell these days. I am going to have to do it someday, just because it is too adorable.
Since I’ve been thinking a lot about simplifying our home to make it easier to keep up while working two full time jobs and maintaining a side job, I’ve been going back and reading some of the posts I’ve stared over the months about organization and simplification. Here’s one that I thought might be a good place to start. I’m pretty sure I can find 100 things to get rid of in the next few weeks. Especially since our closets need a good sorting through and re-evaluation again!
If you haven’t seen, August is YLCF’s Re-posts from the Archives month. This time we’re pulling out some of the really dusty stuff from the paper-journal and it is going to be fun to re-read the things that use to be. Kind of puts it all into perspective—the journey and the growing, the changes and yet how some things will stay the same. I am using the graphic just because I think it is so adorable. Also, do check out YLCF’s newest addition: (Pin)trest. We’ve been having so much fun sharing ideas and pretty things over there.
Last of all, I wanted to share another Laura’s blog (I have a collection of beautiful friends by the name of Laura, by the way. I’m lucky!). Every Wednesday she shares a thought or quote. They’ve all been so good, and I look forward to reading them. If you like quotes, I’m pretty sure you will want to read these.
