My Favourite Articles and Links This Week
I loved this Mario TV talk about being multi-passionate. I think it will resonate with a lot of you.
Why shopping is a bad hobby, and what you should do instead. I don’t think of myself as much of a shopper, but I’m totally #5.
And with all the unbelievably sad things happening around the world these days, this was a great little post about how we are all the same. Although I will note that the two people involved are both white and speak English.
My Favourite Pins This Week
These rainbow sugar cookies are so simple, and they make me happy just looking at them. I don’t know if I could always get my stripe that straight, but I’m going to try one day and find out. Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe post is here.
Mini zucchini pizzas! Tasty and perfect for snacking without getting too full. If you are attending any summer barbecues or parties and wanted to bring something, these would be fantastic as an appetizer or hors d’oeuvres. Because really, I don’t think you are going to get too full off little slices of zucchini. Even with cheese. Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe post is here.
This is the first summer I’ve heard of Frosé, which is a frozen wine slushie made from rosé wine. Oh yes, you read that correctly- wine slushies are now a thing! All you need is your wine, ice, some salt, and a plastic bag. Pinterest link is here, and the original post is here.
I loved this little round up of ideas for socks knit with speckled yarn. I love the speckles!! Totally need to get some speckled yarn in my life, these socks are so inspiring. Pinterest link is here, and the original post is here.
What a pretty idea for little notions, especially if you like to sew! Also great for using up small bits of fabric that you love and can’t bear to part with. Pinterest link is here, and the original DIY post is here.
It’s a long weekend here in Canada and we are heading to the cottage! I’m not looking forward to the ridiculous long weekend traffic that is sure to occupy the first couple of hours of us being on the road, but hey. Each car will have people just like the ones in my car, trying to go somewhere fun, too. I’m hoping to get all sorts of modeled knit photos this weekend (James can’t wait to wear his toasty warm hoodie in this crazy heat!), and I’m excited to have some proper finished knits to share soon! I wish you all a lovely weekend, friends.
