Web Weekend #2

Hello again! I’ve got 292 subscriptions this week, although I must confess that I added like 20 of them just yesterday. Sadly, it seems that there weren’t any good recipes to pass on, but that’s okay, because I’ve got a lot of other things to share. πŸ™‚ Check out the new category at the bottom, featuring things I found cute or just plain funny. πŸ™‚

    Stasia Burrington does make beautiful art. I’m so jealous of water color artists and her talent is amazing. Papercut birds and flowers – AWESOME. Lego art is amazing. Stand mixer out of legos? wut?? Amen to “when did this”. I think that is all for now.
