A Gathering of Links II


This has been a great week in the blogosphere!  I have to really limit the amount of time I spend reading blogs.  My obsessions move in waves… Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest (<- big one), books, games on my iPhone, etc.  Now I have moved to blogs and I will say that if I allowed myself, I could spend hours every day reading posts about lives, journeys, families, recipes, homes and conversations with God.  So, for those of you who enjoy blogs as much as I do, or for those of you who need someone to sift through the bad to find the good…. this list is for you!

Fun projects for the crafty or those who aspire to BE crafty:

I love this adorable gold glitter bowl from A Beautiful Mess and want to try it out as a mother-daughter project with Ava.

This party closet idea from Oh Happy Day is brilliant!  I would totally do it if I had space.  And here is a link to what she accomplished using supplies from her party closet. I love the yellow.  It makes me smile.

I would put this pillow from Becoming Whitney on my couch right now… if I had a sewing machine…. and any clue how to sew!

If you are looking for some spiritual inspiration or something that makes you think about God and/or His people a little differently, the following links are for you:

In Living with Power, I love how honest she is about it being time to regroup.

From Rachael Held Evans, a question and answer with ordinary radical Shane Claiborne

I would love to know if you loved any of these links as much as I do!  What else are you reading these days?  Any good books or blogs?
