five things friday & a little sneak peek

happy friday!

what a week chock full of good things.

1. sunshine in Seattle  2. something new i'm making  3. my blog buddy  4. flowers from the husband
  (if you're wondering about number 2-- it's sneak peek of something I'm pretty excited about.)

and of course-- what's a friday and upcoming weekend without some good internet links? I feel like all the blogs I've been reading have been hitting it out of the ball park with their posts. seriously some good stuff out there.

> Handmade Q & A on allorahandmade-- great, great questions to ask yourself if you have a handmade business. (Good questions to ask yourself in general too.)

> Gussy Sews: 5 ways to put your BEST self forward

> fun V-Day printables by the Paper Mama

> a president I could get behind-- Erin of Living from Yellow saying what she would do as prez.

> Julie Ann talking about her business dreams...

> this is from last week but it's SOO worth a read: Gina's post on being yourself as a blogger.

> I've never loved Alice in Wonderland but Shabby Apple's new collection has changed my mind. I love the whimsical styling of it all-- not to mention the dresses. Will someone buy me this or this? (oh husband...)

everyone-- enjoy your weekend. I'm going to sew, watch Downton Abbey and make someone cook for me. What are you up to?

xo, erika
