Friday, I'm in ♥

Happy Friday all! And a huge welcome to my new followers. Hope you are enjoying my little blog and please don't be shy, comment, email me and introduce yourself. I love to make new friends.

It's time for my 3rd installment of Friday, I'm in Love. I hope you are enjoying this new series. I know I love putting it together each week. My intention is that you will be introduced to some new blogs, content, tutorials or simply fun things - that otherwise, you may not have stumbled across. And as always, feel free to share with me what you found this week that you're really loving!

So, here we go...

  • This list from Just Lovely Things on blog conferences taking place around the country for 2012. I would absolutely love to be able to attend one of these (probably not this year, seeing I am planning a honeymoon). But if the opportunity arose, I would jump at it! So much to learn and people to connect with. Heather Dawn is also doing a giveaway for one pass to the Creative Estates retreat in Flagstaff. Now, how cool is that?

  • There is a guest post over at Gussy Sews that is 3 tips for selling your wares at a craft show by Sharon of Shaggy Baggy. I see a lot of questions pop up with new crafters/shop owners about where to find craft shows, how to prepare and how to be successful. This post has some great tips and additional resources.

  • Who doesn't love to do a little thrift store shopping? I know I do and have even got Prince Charming excited about it. This week Simple Mom shared 12 tips for thrift store shopping. I know it was helpful to me because I have a tendency to come up with tons of stuff that I have no clue what I'm going to do with it!  

  • This one I just have to share for the pure humor of it and because it's so true. If you don't read Mommy Wants Vodka you are missing out. Between her and The Blogess, I can't read their blog and drink coffee at the same time, because I normally laugh so hard it comes out my nose! This article is An Open Letter to Sarah McLachlan - and I know you've all seen the commercials, so go read the letter! You won't regret it!

  • I don't do outfit posts or what I wore posts... but I know a lot of people do. So, I thought this was a great article on self portrait outfit photography by Elycia. If you are a follower of her blog, you know she has some rockin' outfits and a beautiful blog. Her tips here make me, almost, want to photograph some outfits! Don't think I'm that brave quite yet!

So, you share with me! What did you come across this week that you're loving?!


    1. hi :)
      i love your little list.
      these are some really useful links.
      thank you.

      here's my addition to it ;)
      my first link up party on my blog where i get to invite people all around the blogosphere to link up their art, be it a picture, a painting, a sketch or a drawing, every third thursday which was also yesterday.

      so i would love to welcome all of you on my blog and am excited for all of you linking up your art.

    3. I've been a tiny bit out of the loop this week, so all of these are new to me. I can't wait to check them all out. Sorry...guess I failed a bit on being your walking, talking Google gal. LOL!

    4. Aww! Thanks for mentioning my tips :)

    5. Oh wow! I completely missed the post on conferences happening in 2012. I'm checking on that right now!!
