How can it be Friday already? Getting back from our trip late Monday night sure made the week fly by for me. To start the weekend off, I have something that is a little different for you today.
Most of the time when I am working on creating blog posts, I am physically doing the project, taking photos and then in the back end of my own site getting the post written.
While I am doing this I need a break sometimes and go on what I call.. “Around & About” on the internet looking for inspiration and eye candy in the way of decor and lifestyle ideas. Since Fridays are usually very quiet in the online world as everyone is getting ready for the weekend, I thought I would share some recent inspiration I found.
Have you seen this?
I told Ed I want to add one on our dock. :-)
And talking about docks…
I have followed Kelly’s blog for years, but am really enjoying watching her build a brand new lake house. She just moved in and revealed her dining room.
I learned how to do traditional flat nib calligraphy and fancy printing when I was in college, but I never quite mastered using a brush pen to create the more hip and happening pretty hand lettering that is popular today and all over Pinterest. This tutorial and short video will have you creating beautiful brush script in no time.
Now I want to get brush pens in every color.
If the lettering video inspired you to learn more… I am giving away this book that offers a slightly different approach to hand lettering. GIVEAWAY for this book has ended. Congratulations to Pam Clark.
I have never started a journal, but I sure would like to create something like this, not for recipes, but for all my creative ideas.
Stop saying sorry… Let’s Stop Apologizing
If you are crafty and enjoy using your computer and printer to create gifts… here is a really cute and clever gift idea. Ashley made these with her kids for Father’s Day, but I see many other gift giving possibilities, too.
Do you like to doodle? I do and find myself always drawing eyes and flowers. My friend Gail introduced me to the world of Zentangle. I had never heard of it, have you? Now I am hooked. I do it in its simplest form especially when I am talking on the phone, I grab a scrap piece of paper and start Zentangling. It is amazing what you can create with a small piece of paper and a pen or pencil, even if you have no artistic talent.
Since moving to SC, Ed and I are having a hard time finding a family doctor nearby. Our previous one in Pennsyvania was terrific. When I read about this book in a magazine I wanted to learn more and bought it. I think it makes a lot of sense.
If you like or shall I say LOVE peonies as much as I do and want them to last longer, this post will help you make them last for up to a month!
Thats a wrap for today.
