links loved / mar 8

linksloved1 A bit random, this photo was taken in Balls Creek when I was walking around last week, waiting for a part to be put into my car by the mechanics at Jed’s.

Here are some things I’ve seen lately that I thought I’d share. My #1 blogging inspiration, Elise is doing them once a week now and it’s inspiring me to do the same.

I listened to CBC’s DNTO (Definitely Not The Opera) today and the episode was all about saying “no”. I loved it! Especially the interview early on (at 5:13) with Beth Wareham. “You need no to live an honest life. I can’t live my life without the word no.”

I finally bought a new pair of jeans and feel like a million bucks in them. I also love that I can walk into Reitmans and walk back out with great-fitting, decently-priced jeans for my size (which is size 15), every time. I’m a big fan of that.

The steps of Mom-relationships.

The importance of sketchbooks.

My friend Krista talks about her favourite poem “i carry your heart with me (i carry it in” and compassion.

Elise’s notes and tips on being a productive work-from-home creative mom. “I love my family. I love my job. I make no apologies for either. Without my family I’ve got nothing. Without my job I don’t feel like me. So my never-ending goal is to live a happy life that incorporates both.”

Great new music (new to me anyway): Hurray for the Riff Raff.

Beautiful books to gaze upon by Basma Kavanagh.
