Thanks so much for all your sweet birthday wishes! My family gave me a wonderful birthday — I’m thinking I might save the particulars for the next Friday’s Fave Five post.
Some of your comments gave rise to a question, though:
How do you get those musical notes in your comments?
Those were so neat — and there are times I’ve wanted to do that but didn’t know it could be done.
I have some assorted puttering around to do today — a little cleaning, a few errands, etc. But I wanted to share with you some great things I’ve read recently. Some of these are blogs I am subscribed to through Google Reader — some I found through a series of links that I forgot to make note of.
Gifted Moms — funny post from Christian comedian Cheryl Moeller.
Before I was a Mom — poignant post on love learned as a mom by The Diaper Diaries.
Interview with Stephen King and Jerry Jenkins — the latter of the Left Behind series as well as several other books, the former of…well, who doesn’t know about Stephen King? I haven’t actually read his books — I don’t do scary — and the only film I’ve seen based on one of his books was Stand By Me, and I really enjoyed that. But though the authors are opposite in some ways, they have some similarities and mutual respect, and I thought this interview was quite interesting.
On the craft front — I love these little collages by Charlotte Lyons at house wren studio.
I’ve mentioned before that I was looking for ideas for craft storage or craft/sewing rooms: here are links to some inspiring ones I’ve found.
Lynn at Queen of the Castle is hosting agiveaway for the book Making It Home.
Reason #4,926 why I love him by Carpoolqueen. Just go read it. It’s hilarious.
Have a wonderful Saturday!
