Link Love 10.2

I feel like I don't keep enough track of some of the great blog posts I love!  I want to take time every once in a while to celebrate other bloggers and their great work!  Today I'm sharing a few recent blog posts by others that I think you should know about.


 We often get so caught up in appearance.  This reminder to invite people into the mess was just perfect for me.  I think there's a line from opening up to EVERYONE about EVERYTHING, but sharing your mess both literally and figuratively with those close to you is meaningful. I have some few close friends with whom I don't feel like I have to clean up my house for.... or my feelings. I hope you have someone like that, too.

August Darby Smart: Homemade Soap


Darby Smart's August to DIY For box was a soap making kit.  I've never made soap before, so it seemed like a fun venture! The box included: a big block of soap, poppy seeds, lemon scent oil, a soap mold, and a card which directed me to the directions online.
