The Internet Just Keeps On Being Interesting

Two new site that friends and fellow bloggers have pointed me towards:

Goodsie: An Etsy, Big Cartel, and the like competitor - online shop hosting. I am very happy with Big Cartel for my Quivver shop, but I like some of the features on Goodsie - larger images and more customization without having to learn css. It's a bit more per month, but I may have gone with Goodsie if it was available at the time. Definitely a site to keep an eye on.


Stitch & Hem: Independently designed and sewn clothing and shoes - custom made to fit your measurements!  Prices vary, but are less than I expected. There's so much potential here - especially for those of us on the high or low ends of the size range!




food52: I'm not a whiz in the kitchen, and don't always "cook" anymore than mixing things together, but I can follow a recipe, and get excited for new things to try - and boy howdy, there are about a million recipes on this food blog I want to try! and tips! and shopping!

RJW on Pinterest

I'm back! Been back for a week, but I was very busy getting ready for M's Baby Shower on Sunday, which despite the heat went off very well. I will share some details once I get back into my normal rhythm.

So I'm sure most of you know about Pinterest, I've known about it for a while, but I tend to be suspicious of the next new thing until it proves itself to be worthwhile. "Pinterest is a virtual pinboard. Pinterest allows you to organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. You can browse pinboards created by other people to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests." It's a much nicer way for me to keep track of things than hundreds of bookmarks, and I love being able to see what else is hip and happenin' with the hip folks out there.

Well, I've only been "pinning" a week or two and it's a lot of fun, plus a good way to keep track of inspiration as well as lovely things to spend money on! You can check out my Pins Here!
