Monday Link List: 039

Monday, April 01, 2013

I'm pretty sure I have shared some of Laura McKellar's art with you before but I'm just crazy about this embroidery. I can't wait for Spring to finally reach Scotland.

I absolutely love this card set from Rifle Paper Co, such lovely colours.

Gillian shared some of her favourite haunts in Edinburgh

This free Easter printable from Kelli Murray would be adorable all year round.

Medieval Knight Found In City Car Park: You might not know this but I actually went to university to study archaeology, for a whole bunch of reasons I didn't finish but I still absolutely love the subject so I was super excited when I read about a knight being found underneath the car park of Edinburgh University's old Archaeology Department.

Little Thoughts: Amanda talks about the negative side of living in a small town. We've been talking on and off about moving out of the city for a while and I've got to admit I'm a little bit nervous about meeting new people if we do.

Photo Tip - White Balance & ISO: I've not taken as many photos as I would like lately so I'm making an effort to learn a little more at the moment while I have time. Katherine's tutorials are always nice and easy to understand (even for me).

Relishing Freedom: Nicole talks about the relief of being dog free after some puppy sitting. I absolutely love our dogs but I've got to admit those very rare days when we don't have them are a bit of a treat - although I just spend my time worrying about them instead.

Six Things I Did Instead Of Blogging: Jenna talks about learning new skills and keeping busy.

Staying Motivated To Blog: Elizabeth has a habit of talking about what I'm thinking about - and I swear it wasn't my question. Reading this post on Friday really gave me the motivation to dedicate a chunk of my weekend to catching up around here.

Jeez, it's been a crazy few weeks for bloggers. I'm sure everyone has heard the Google Reader is shutting down as of July 1st, but so is HelloCotton. In addition to that Better Blogger Network has also had a change of ownership, madness all round.

  6. Laura McKellar's artwork is amazing— thanks for sharing this list!

    and i agree about the crazy week for bloggers— i think everyone has spring fever or something? all the posts i've read lately is about people slowing down and taking breaks from their blog for fresh air (which i think is great, for the record!) but there is definitely something in the air lately!

    and thanks for the shout out! i really think we gotta check ourselves to make sure our blogs + sites are helping us grow and not holding us back as people!


Thanks so much for taking the time to read my blog, and even more for taking the time to comment. I read and appreciate every single one.
