updates, links, happenings and more

Hi friend! Are you enjoying spring? It's cherry blossom season here in the Baltimore/ DC area and I have to say, it sure is welcome. Winter here this year was weird with lots of unusual warm snaps in-between really cold weather. Spring is here now and it's just good to see things sprouting from the ground and blooming on trees! I'm ready for a picnic!

As always, behind the scenes I'm up to some fun stuff. So when you see lulls here in my posting keep two things in mind: first, I am a one-woman show (no staff save my amazing kids! ) and secondly,  a lull normally means I have projects going on behind the scenes. I can't wait to share more with you, but for now, that's that. Thanks for you patience when things are slow on SP.

I also wanted to let you know about a few things happening right now that might interest you. First and foremost, my dear, dear friend, published author and writer Maggie Ethridge of the popular blog Flux Capacitor is hosting a fundraiser hike in her hometown this month to help raise awareness and funds for child abuse. All donations for this amazing cause can be made directly to the Child Help site for Maggie's fundraiser right here. 

Secondly, if you are reading this right now, chances are you have heard about this thing called the internet. It's changed the way we do things and the way we connect, have you noticed? Remember when people used to mail you things? Remember when reading a paper or watching the news on television was the only way to keep up with current events? We are instantly and globally connected now more than ever  and this concept called "radical connectivity" by author Nicco Mele is the subject of his new book The End of Big.  The book will hits stands on April 24rd but you can pre-order a copy now since you are officially in the "know".

Finally, there is a shop spotlight on Classic Play today for the adorable vintage shop called Tulie and Woo. If you head on over, you just might find a fun special offer. Check it out here!

Have a great Tuesday everyone and I will be back tomorrow with my weekly craft project on PBS Parents!

Pin It!

You really are a one-woman show... and what a show it is. Hope everything you are working on comes to fruition.
