Web Weekend #4

Hello again! I’ve got 314 subscriptions this week. Where do they all come from?
I’m still behind, but I am reasonably caught-up. It’s as good as it’s gonna get for now.
This week’s offerings here are light on crafts. I’m feeling rather uninspired right now so I felt rather “meh” about everything. To see what you’ve missed, go check out my Pinterest – I shared there liberally throughout the week, bringing pithy commentary and hearty lols as appropriate.

    Those wooden castle blocks. I can’t say the things I want about them without creating double entendres so let’s just leave it at I want them. MAKE THE GAMEBOY. Also, thanks for once again leading me down the rabbit hole of the internet. I added AT LEAST 3 more blogs to my reader. It’s NEVER ENDING. The pin curl chick is awesome (I checked out a few more of her hair tutes/tuts [?]). Rainbow frosting IS HAPPENING. I think I’ve pretty much commented on everything else via g+, soooo back to laundry. meh.
