Found Objects

date night in White Rock at the pier

I haven't done a bag of tricks links in a long time. Here's all the fun, interesting, smart, or silly things I've been loving 'round the internet. Enjoy!

  • She totally gets it. 
  • There are no better girly barrettes than these little candy rolls.  What a perfect little craft idea that won't take more than 10 minutes!
  • How do nerds play? They read young-adult fiction for fun. Currently I'm reading Kate DiCamillo's Flora & Ulyssess and I love it. No wonder it won the Newberry for this year.  Rumors of a movie!
  • This lady's weavings are beautiful. She was starting out well before it was popular (again). I am so inspired by these. I love textured pieces. 
  • I'm on instagram (after, ahem, finally crawling out from under my rock)!
  • Political: Following the Hobby Lobby issue? Stay away from facebook, but see how this liberal secularist shows how conservatives understands liberals more. Too much of a mouthful? Watch his TED talk (on how liberals and conservatives hold different values that make them misunderstand each other) or listen to his On Being interview "The Psychology Behind Morality"
  • I literally just added 15+ more books to my list. How does this happen?! 
  • My oldest was named Bubble King this summer and this DIY will happen soon for neighborkid fun. 
  • possibly the best themed birthday-party ever--at the very least..the costumes!
  • Family outings that cost money aren't in the budget. BUT. $1 movie tickets to kid shows? I can totally handle that! (google your local big box movie theater, most have this or a similar summer promotion!)
  • Yes, let's talk about books all day. Then let's talk about traveling all night.  
  • Speaking of travel, was I the last person to know that REI has traveling group-trips? Like, even multi-sport amazing family options ?  
  • perfect summer music:  (new), (older), (oldest)
