Here are a few of my recent favorite finds.
For those of us who are bloggers out there, and sign up for affiliate links you will know what I am talking about when I say its frustrating. Its a lot of work for the 10 cents a year payment. The Wp auto affiliate links is a simple plugin you can use to plug in your ID for various affiliate networks and it will automatically add in your links. I got a demo version to try out, and I haven’t seen a huge increase of sales, in fact, haven’t seen any, but the hope is there for the future. I will keep you posted on this to see if its worth the initial investment.
CreativeBug Craft Classes and Workshops – where inspiring designers and crafters gather to bring us video workshops we can take at home and on our own schedule. Each of the videos I watched were well made and easy to follow. I haven’t finished my crochet project yet, but I will be sure to show you when I have it. CreativeBug has A La Carte purchases or as part of a subscription.
As a devout book lover, I love the idea of encouraging the love of all things book. A friend of mine is an author, and I think this really fun book shaped cake pan would be awesome for her next book launch party. I would love to make a Very Hungry Caterpillar cake for a first birthday party. I can’t wait to make a fun project with this! This one is from Gone Reading – where you can find all sorts of book related gift items. My other favorites include the floating book shelf, the author inspired candle scents, and the personal library kit.
My kids all love to read books, and we enjoy looking at beautiful illustrations. The Lost My Name Books were thrilling to them because their names are in the books! These person touches make for a special gift that any child is sure to enjoy. I only wish that we could add other small things in addition to their name to personalize the book even further.
