link love - 3.16.12

I'm alive! So sorry for the lack of blogging this week. We've been in teething hell and I've been super swamped at work. Having to take work home with me at night means blogging has to get bumped if I want to spend any time with my family (which I do, because they're awesome.) But I'll be back in full force next week with lots of new stuff, including my next Craft the Catalog feature! Until then, here's some stuff that caught my eye this week...

  • The Reflections Photo Series by Tom Hussey - If you only follow one of these links today, make it this one. This series struck me so deeply, I must have cycled through it 3 or 4 times. Even at 30, I often see myself in the mirror as I once was... the little girl with the mess of tangled curls, the insecure teenager, the pre-baby body. What will I see when I'm 60, 70, 80? What does my mother see now?


  • Chalkboard Contact Paper on Restored Style - Chalkboard paint has become so popular, but what if you have a rental or don't want to commit to painting your pricey custom cabinets? Well Kirsten's got you covered (quite literally) with this genius tutorial for using chalkboard contact paper!


  • How to Make Your Own Freezer Wraps on The Kitchn - My husband loooves frozen burritos. They're his default food. So when I saw this I got very excited... now Jared can make his own (preservative-free) frozen burritos. This might change his life.


Have a great weekend everyone! :-)  (PS... GO STATE!!!)
