Does anyone else feel like the holidays just plopped themselves in the middle of life? Which is how it always is, I guess…but this year they feel especially ploppish. And maybe the distraction is a good thing. Let’s go with that, shall we? And while we’re going, here are a few links of cool stuff I found.
This Women Who Draw open directory for illustrators makes me so happy. Even if you’re not an artist, it will make you smile.
Need another smile, and also some quick homemade gifts? Jasmine Tea Infused Vodka. Next year, my friends.
A little spring for your winter, in the form of 25,000 paper flowers. Sometimes we just need a little pretty, you know?
These house numbers are awesome. We’ve had the same ones since we moved in, 24 years ago. I think we should be embarrassed by now.
This graphic helped me calm down a bit and remember that I don’t control everything.
RBG says this is how to raise a kick-ass daughter. I actually did pretty well here, though I can’t take all the credit.
Chai Sugar. I love to make gifts for neighbors and friends, but since I don’t bake, I’m always looking for new ideas.
50 of the year’s best images from National Geographic. Like a vacation in my computer, that’s what.
Pantone’s color of the year, Greenery. I like it!
Toni Morrison writes about the role of an artist in times of turmoil. We have work to do, my friends.
50 ways to do good by doing well. I love these and want to put each one of them on a post it note and place all over my body, so I won’t forget.
That’s it for this week (and maybe even for the year). See you on the flip side.
