Happy. Happy. Friday.
This is how I feel today. It has been a good week, but I’m happy it’s winding down.
I have a LOT of work to do, but it is fun work for this I am truly grateful.
Here are a few things that have crossed my path lately … ENJOY!
Team Sparkle running skirts.
Yes, I’m serious.
My adorable sis-n-law Hillary is running a relay race this weekend and her team of six women will be wearing these. How fun is that? If you have any need of matching running outfits that SPARKLE, now you know where to go.
You gotta love the Internet and all the glittery possibilities it has opened to us.
Mini planters from Buzzy Seeds. Addie got the Forget-Me-Not kit in her Easter basket (the EB found it in the dollar section at Target.) She has dutifully watered this 3″ pot every day, and everyday says, “I have my own flowers.” Adorable.
Couldn’t resist the Nesting Sock Monkeys for Trey’s basket. The littlest monkey was holding a jelly bean!
Taft and I played it on a Sunday afternoon not that long ago — it was pretty intellectual (and by that I mean my vocabulary is severely limited) but we enjoyed playing together. I think this would be a GREAT tool for home schooling too.
I’m SUPER excited about this one.
One of my “she-ros” in life is Arlene. When I first moved to Liberty Lake, I had the chance to visit her every month and I always came away feeling better about myself–she is one of those people that love and build up everyone they encounter. Arlene collects heart-shaped rocks and has a really cool Etsy store. She makes AMAZING little journals compiled of found papers, hand-stitched textures and all kinds of little time-intensive ephemeral treasures (like stamps, tickets, tags and more tucked into tiny handmade envelopes) all of this is wrapped in between the covers of old books and beautifully bound for using and sharing. I’ve seen lots of mixed journals, but none that are so painstakingly created and chock full of kindhearted messages.
I have ONE of these gorgeous little books.
I am GIVING it to Keely, who commented yesterday and told me I don’t talk too much when I’m a guest on the Paperclipping Roundtable. Clearly, leaving complimentary comments that specifically address my insecurities is a smart thing to do *wink*
