Go Win Something Pretty
On an online forum that I frequent, there is a thread titled, Get It Off Your List, and it is about finishing that one thing that is hanging around on your to-do list that nags at you, drags you down a bit, blocks you from getting anything else accomplished, and is an eat your frog de-motivator. So, today, I am going to go eat my frog, and leave you instead with some fun links elsewhere, to other people, people who aren’t giant procrastinators, who already ate their damned frogs, and now are producing awesome content online.
Jillian Lauren is giving away some gorgeous scarves on her blog. Handmade in Ethiopia, a place where learning to weave can be a pathway out of crushing poverty, she is partnering with Connected In Hope, an organization that helps weavers sell their goods in the US. It is a great project, and the scarves are lovely, so go win one.
Beth, at Remarkably Domestic has the cutest tutorial in how to make a fairy castle for your garden, something I plan to do as soon as I eat my frog, and Design Mom thinks I might be able to make my own dish towels, which I might try, but only if I can use letter stamps that spell out ‘Do Your Own Dishes’.
I was delighted to find someone who dislikes Gwyneth Paltrow as much as I do, and another who is as baffled by all the cat stuff on Pinterest as I am. Now, if Becky would just update, my online reading life would be complete. Maybe she forgot to eat her frog, too.
