A Dose of Random

There have been all kinds of interesting links coming in through the Google Reader lately, so I thought a weekly round-up of things interesting, odd, helpful, or humorous might be in order.

  • How to decorate big wallspaces without blowing your budget from JC Penny (random source, very cool site.)
  • From EKW, a great link from Craftster on first projects for new crafters.  [Note: My sewing machine is already booked through the month of December with projects for my Mom.  I’m think she’s more excited about me having the machine than I am because she knows I’ll use it and can make things for her.]
  • Finally!  A group that recognizes women like and appreciate dark beer!
  • Interweave Press announces the launch of Stitch magazine, a hip new magazine for those of us who are sewing-inclined.  (What are people called who sew?  Sewer (ew!)? Seamstress?  Stitcher? Crazy Person?)  Link from Craftzine.
  • And to wrap it up, from one of my favorite blogs, Zen Habits, a great guest post on decluttering and living simply, which just so happens to be one of my favortie topics.
    [Note: I adore Zen Habits and I can’t believe I haven’t linked here yet.  Many apologies Leo!]

One response to “A Dose of Random

  1. a) Guinness is my go-to brew!

    2) I just saw Stitch on the stands yesterday! There’s a super-cute skirt on the cover. I’d get all into it, but I still have a stash of older clothes that I’m determined to re-purpose. Let’s also not forget all those knitting and crochet projects that have been on indefinite hiatus. *sigh*
