Link Day Friday 

Now, for the links– I get excited when readers stop to click for a peek at these links;) More then just sharing the information, I have been following these sites and their curators for some time now. They’re part of my routine. Alot of them share even more blogger resources. Trust me, keep these on hand! I promise they will delight your inbox and are each creative, worthy reads. Whichever you chose here’s the best of late:

1). Sash, curator of Inked In Colour:  

Outside of her blogs natural exterior beauty, Sash expresses herself passionately on issues important to her, and her readers.  As an Australian born woman she offers thought and conversational provoking view points with graceful assertiveness. As a Mother, she offers us an in-depth look into her experience in fostering creativity in children, plus her parenting and the ever so relatable piece containing bitter/sweet battles with child- ‘Weaning Hell‘! We Moms have all had some trouble with that at some point! 

2).  Handmade Charolette 

A site you may already be happily familiar with. Handmade Charolette is a web-collection full of blogging Mom’s providing inspiration for creative learning, and handmade DIY projects for children. The main focus by its creator, is on DIY Crafts & Design for Kids. Like them on their  Facebook Page for much more community communication, follow up photos, and further fun links.

3).  Discovered through Handmade Charolette’s contributors, was the  Natalia Kramer on her Google Plus Profile. Posts, photos, and links of her DIY craft projects. Kramers designs bring a child’s imagination to life, with designs jumping off the page! 

4). Small for Big 

…is where I found a valuable ABC’s Letter Playground idea link! Mari Richards‘ blog contains happy colors, and crafting DIY’s I just cannot explain in words. Her children’s toy finds beyond creatively unique.

Share your favorite creative kids activity, craft makers, DIY-ers, or your own link below.

We’re a busy little family this weekend. Maybe I’ll upload “One Shot, Two Ways” at some point again, when time;) Check out my Pinterest Boards for much more “pin-spiration”. Children’s World, DIY, and Land Of Etsy are full of useful information.

Don’t Let Comparison Steal Your Joy

20130324-161034.jpg

As a newbie in blogging (with very little time to do so) I find myself spending more time reading, trying to keep up with trends, or attempting to compose the best readable worded blog out there–for popularity instead of the real reason I started blogging.

What’s the reason? To share my personal experiences and some opinions on them, in hopes that those shares will help Someone Else…that’s all I’ve ever wanted to do in my life. Help others. I do that but, have less and less time in real life and found an outlet here in blogging world.
My Solution: No Complaining or Comparing–Starting Monday, my solution is to go back to basics. First sharing whatever experience rings true to my mind on the days I blog: Monday, Tuesday, Thursdays, and the occasional; like today.

I hope the coming posts I hope you find something within them that bring you comfort, understanding, acceptance, or just plain entertainment.

I can only BE ME–and you can be whoever you want to here! Feel free to leave a Comment below or not too ;)
