|A list of happy distractions from the month of March.|
Thoughts on tipping and tooting.
Marbleized eggs the easy way. The secret? Shaving cream. Why didn't I see this three weeks ago?
...I'll also be making these leopard beauties next year.
A beautifully made reminder to live in the moment.
Have you heard about Gizgogle? It's a parody website that converts webpages into slang. Click here to read mine. I can't decide if it's funny or offensive, but it makes me feel like I'm reading an early 90's edition of MTV Jams. I'll take it.
Meet Edith Windsor, the hero of the Marriage Equality movement.
Wholly Toledo, I love this gal's Pinterest page. Talk about a rabbit hole!
Speaking of Pinterest, for anyone who has ever pinned some judgmental "weight loss = self-love + self-discipline" type of meme (you know who you are), this article was meant for you.
New wedding trend: Granny Flower Girls.
Want to give $25 of someone else's money away to a person in need? Michelle has the hook up.
I have always felt hesitant about increasing my sponsored posts. After reading this post from Maegan yesterday, I am not going to let myself feel bad about it anymore. Period.
Speaking of promotions...Kindle readers, did you know you can get 18 works of Jane Austen for 99cents? Or what about Anne of Green Gables? Or 55 works of Charles Dickens? Or a host of other authors, all for just 99 cents. Woot!
Looking to expand your craft blog scope? Amy's got 50 you should see.
Most popular post this month: Duct Tape Easter Eggs. Not everyone wants to dye eggs, go figure?
Reading: Blink by Malcom Gladwell. Non-fiction, easy, fascinating read about how people think. Why are some people excellent decision makers while others are totally inept? It's not a self-help book but it's oddly helpful. If you have never read his book The Tipping Point, start there first.
Watching: Game of Thrones. I used to make fun of people obsessed with knights and dragons. Now I'm one of them. What?
Munching: Buttercrunch cashews. Don't even ask.
Listening: 1940/50's Novelty Jazz. Slim Gillard. Carmen McRae. Louis Prima. What's that? You don't like Italian supper club soundtracks? Fine. Check out the ten best bands of SXSW.
Wearing: Mardi Gras beads. Came back from vacation with 25 pounds of the stuff. Pictures to follow next week :)
