On Vacation!

Hi all, I am on vacation from 9/22 to 10/10 so there will be no posts or Sunday Linky Parties from now until then. Where am I going? To China! :O Yep, pretty exciting. I have no idea if I'll be able to access my blog or e-mail (since I hear certain sites are blocked there) and I should really take a break from technology anyway (except for the camera :). For those who are wondering, the next effective Sunday Linky Party will be on 10/16.

I will actually be visiting the Great Wall of China so I hope my pictures will be as awesome as the one above! Well, may as well post some pictures of China I've found on Etsy :) I wonder what most of the country looks like now that they've had so much development.

Sunday Linky Party #33 + Goodies

I think this weekend's line-up could be called the "sewing edition" because there were a lot of great sewing projects :) I'm also going on vacation for a little over 2 weeks so I may miss 2 or 3 Sunday Linky Parties. I'll have a post up about that soon!

This four seasons bean bag is sooooo cute! I love the fabric, the embroidery, and the idea. It's easy enough that I can make it for some buddies :) Yay. Check it out at The Crafty Cpa.

Maybe it's a little early for a post like this, but I'm seeing a lot of fall-inspired items on Etsy and it's transitioning me into the mood for autumn. Pumpkin hits the spot right now, and since I'm a little hungry, everything's going to be food-related. Ready?

Sunday Linky Party #32 + Goodies

I'd like to wish you all a "happy Sunday," but today is unfortunately the anniversary of a very tragic event that happened 10 years ago. Please take a moment to remember and appreciate how lucky we are to have our wonderful families, friends, and homes. We are lucky to have the means and opportunities to create all these amazing crafts and recipes that bring positivity to ourselves and to the lives of those around us. Remember to love and value the important people and things around us because nothing lasts forever.

I think this weekend is going to be "Recipe Weekend" because there were a lot of amazing recipes from the last linky. Food is comfort for the soul!

These fabric buttons are super cute. I like how you can make them using any fabric you want, then they can be made into earrings, pins, magnets, and whatever else you can think of. Find out how at Craft Buds.

Are You Affected by the Weather?

I can't believe that it's September already! I love summer because I love the hot temperatures, sunshine, and longer days. Now it's all coming to an end as autumn slowly (or actually, rapidly) approaches. Just thinking about it makes me a little sad. I've noticed that my mood is directly affected by the weather and I think that's the case for many many people. Have you ever felt that your moods are tied to the weather as well?

What Summer Means To Me by Kristybee
Yes, I want to live the kind of charmed life evoked by these photos.

Thanks to studies done by psychologists (they never let me down), there is evidence that weather does indeed directly affect the moods of some of us. Now we can say we're not making this stuff up when we blame our crankiness on the rain (or the sun).

Sunday Linky Party #31 + Goodies

Happy Labor Day Weekend! My friends and I will be having a barbecue in the park, so I'm excited! There are also lots of good sales this weekend, but I need to not shop, so more stuff for everyone else, yay :) Have a great relaxing time, if nothing else, and check out this week's features!

Recycle a pair of jeans and a men's shirt into a cool messenger bag with this easy-to-follow tutorial from The Crafty Cpa! I'm sure the man in your life would wear this, but you can always take it from him.
