Tuesday Treasure Trove: this week's round-up of read-worthy links


Things of Note:

How’s that for a list of random things? I was all over the place in internetland this week apparently.

In news from real life, I experienced Schlitterbahn for the first time this past weekend, which yielded two things of note. #1) if you use sunscreen and reapply it regularly, you can manage to not get burnt in a full day of Texas sun. (yay! who knew, right? haha) #2) While I like fast water and waves and generally floating along, I do NOT like the parts of water rides where you’re on an innertube and there’s a big drop. The idea of being flipped off the tube, in chaotic fast water in a fairly narrow space with other people following close behind about to collide with you – not my idea of fun. The very first ride we went on had some of that, and for the rest of the day I stuck to rides without those drops.

Also, it looks like I’ll be doing a mini craft sale party thing in August, which should be fun. And also a learning experience, as I’ve never tried selling offline before. I’m also considering applying to a craft fair later this year. We’ll see!

And finally, you have just a few hours left to enter the Shabby Apple giveaway, if you haven’t already. Winner announced tomorrow.

How are things in your life lately?


  1. “Just A Few Of The Many Many Reasons I’ve Had Sex Besides Actually Wanting To Have Sex” was pretty powerful for me… I feel like I could have written that whole article, though I wish I hadn’t looked at the comments below because it really made me want to punch people in the face.
