Back to Work

the best to eye, to buy, to make, and to bake / a thousand threads
Whew — the first week back to work after a really great vacation is always rough, but I’m slowly getting back into the swing of things and, now that I’m a little more rested, feeling pretty refreshed. It’s tough to come back, but that little bit of time off always makes the return just that much more productive.

Here’s to a little less burnout and a whole lot more weekend coming up soon — any big plans?

Eye this sweet little home on a canal boat.

Buy this simple, pretty ceramic and leather necklace.

Make your own skateboard!

Bake homemade ice cream conesthen do this! My mouth is watering…

What makes a good running blog? (About running, but I think it applies across the board.)

How to talk to your daughter about her body — via Anne and Emily on Twitter.

Wanna start a blog? Just do it.

Can we have one of these in Frederick, please? Who’s in for opening one? (I’m kind of serious.)

I was kind of obsessed with The Postal Service once upon a time (okay I still am) so this 14-minute documentary is fascinating to me.

    Thank goodness for this weekend–with an audit at work, I’m desperate to get away from the spreadsheets and financial statements!

    Hi Laicie – have you seen Cowork Frederick? (http://www.coworkfrederick.com/) It seems similar to MakeShift Society…

    Also, they knew yarn store is almost directly across the street. SCORE!
