My Favourite Articles and Links This Week
The librarian who saved Timbuktu’s cultural treasures from Al-Qaeda is a wonderful, fascinating article- that guy is a hero, and this should be a movie.
You’ve heard of Mixed Martial Arts, right? Here’s Mixed Martial Arts & Crafts. So. Damn. Funny.
A museum in Russia tried to play an April Fool’s Day joke, and ended up employing a cat.
I loved these quotes from women on love, life, and being the person you are meant to be.
My Favourite Pins This Week
You guys know how I adore grilled cheese in all it’s various forms, so you’ll have to forgive me two different takes on this treat this week!
I absolutely love buttered toast with cinnamon sugar, and this decadent treat takes all of 5 mins to put together and is better and more satisfying than any chocolate bar. Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe post is here.
This bacon Macaroni and cheese melt is utterly decadent, and the perfect solution to leftover mac and cheese. I haven’t had this yet, but man oh man, do I ever want to try it! Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe post is here.
I love this holographic vase DIY- it reminds me of that similar glaze effect you see on some old decorative ceramics. This looks so pretty and fresh for spring! Pinterest link is here, and the original DIY post is here.
The dynamic duo of Arne & Carlos have a great tutorial on how to knit a super easy sock with an afterthought heel. Have you tried a sock with an afterthought heel before? If you like your knitting on the mindless/zen side, then this is perfect. Pinterest link is here, and the original post is here.
I’m completely smitten with these adorable Japanese cat playing card letterpress illustrations, and after much hunting, it turns out these are a desk of playing cards- they are postcards! The illustrations are so sweet, if they did make them as a deck of playing cards, I would definitely order them in a heartbeat. Pinterest link is here, and the original post is here (but in Japanese).
This week passed by in a blink for me- how is it already Friday? I could have sworn it was only Tuesday. Oh well. Don’t forget that today is the start of the Instagram #craftyblisschallenge! Even if you don’t have Instagram, you can click that link any time and check out the photos people are posting. I hope you’ll join us!
