link love - 3.2.12

Whew! What a week... I have nothing much to say about it except that I'm happy it's over. Oh, but we did get our Pickathon tickets this morning, which is very exciting. If you haven't heard of it, it's pretty much the best music festival on the planet... green, family friendly, and insanely good indie-roots music. 3 days filled with a bunch of really nice people listening to a bunch of really great bands. And it doesn't get much better than that for this girl. Anywho, here's what inspired me this week...

  • Big Book of Names and Faces on A Cup of Jo -  These new books from Pinhole Press are too cute. All of our family and close friends live out of state, so a book like this would be perfect for helping Emma remember who's who.

  • Tailoring Your Trousers on Cotton & Curl - I love this tutorial for converting ill fitting pants into skinnies. I'm curious how it would work with a heavier weight pant, but the instructions sure make it seem super simple to rescue all those Gap chinos from the Goodwill pile.


  • Microwave Potato Chips on The Kitchn - These have me very intrigued. I'd never heard of - or even thought of - making potato chips in the microwave. It almost seems to good to be true, but I'm certainly willing to give it a try!

I hope you all have a great weekend! I'll be spending mine hanging with our newly-standing baby, and working on my next Craft the Catalog project. This one could be awesome, or a total disaster, so cross your fingers my crazy idea actually works out!
