Linky Love ~ Friday Edition

I was thrilled when I recently discovered that someone I know in real life writes a wonderful blog called Hope Studios. She also runs an awesome etsy shop by the same name. That gorgeous family tree down there is hers. Her hand painted Heartsongs frames and plaques tug at my heartstrings.

Jennifer Juniper is the wife of The Hubster's high school friend. Our paths have crossed numerous times over the years, but I had no idea how much we have in common until I started to read her blog. I'll bet that she doesn't remember the time that she gave me great advice when I was a new mom with 1 little boy who wouldn't nap and she was a seasoned mom with 3 young boys. The advice that she gave me (1 hour in the crib. No negotiations) helped me relax and change the way I looked at naptime for my kids.

She's smart and funny and she has talent pouring out of her eyeballs. Her blog is full of great tutorials like:
How to make ribbon flowers
How to make your own high-fashion shoes
A fun branch jewelry display
Make a moss terrarium
Bird's nest decor

Check her out and say "HI!" for me.


Now for some other Linky Love...

You MUST go see this playroom created by Kathyrn of Nannygoat! It makes me want to start bashing holes in my walls to try and find a secret nook.

Sunday is the last day to get your super cheap magazines and discounted items from Southern Living at Home. The specials that you can get if you spend $29.95 are fantastic, so get 'em if you want 'em!

Holy crap! Thanks! My friends still call me the "sleep nazi" and I think it helped me a lot when I was trying to get through those rough times with little ones.

I have to say, that since I started reading your blog I've found myself browsing spray paint colors in Walmart. Sick? I think so. I'm trying to get a post up about my chandelier make over. I think you will likey :)
