What I’m Digging
Happy Friday, friends! Hope all is well in your worlds today. We’re on the mend, it appears, after a short bought of stomach flu for the little guy. He seems just fine and dandy today, though, thankfully.
I’ve got a Small Measures post up on Design Sponge today. I’m chatting about making colored twine for decorating packages. Why would you DIY your twine, instead of purchasing it in a store or online? For several reasons-you can create a vast range of colors and color combinations at home that would cost a mint to buy, and crafting your own creates a personalized effect with character that you’d never be able to make with mechanically-created colored twine.
In other news, here’s a smattering of this’s and that’s that caught my attention this week:
*This permaculture design course in Belize looks incredible (and it’s run by an old friend of Glenn’s!).
I’m looking forward to a potluck and garland-making get-together at my friend Jess‘s house tomorrow afternoon (and she’s got a hot tub, to boot!). After that, we’re headed to my Mom’s place, for an overnight trip to Grandma’s (or “Gigi’s”, in our case), complete with a cookie-baking session slated for Sunday morning.
Wherever you go this weekend, whatever you do, and whomever you do it with, may it be grand!
*Each Friday, I post a photo of Huxley, because, truly, he’s what his Papa and I dig the most. He’s sitting in front of our wood stove’s hearth gate here. This post from last December goes into a bit more detail about the gate. It’s worked like a charm since Glenn made it, and keeps this Mama from having extreme heart palpitations every time Huxley plays near the stove.
