friday favorites | july 26, 2013

Hola and happy Friday evening, everyone! Sorry to be posting this a bit late, but the day got away from me! I've been switched over to working four 10 hour days per week instead of my usual Monday-Friday schedule, and, while I'm getting used to it, I can see that Fridays are going to be major catch-up days as I work to make up for those lost evening hours during the rest of the week. I'm not complaining- life is all about change, after all- there's just going to be a bit of an adjustment period. :)

Lucky for me, I got most of the housework and chores out of the way today, so I should have some time for crafty fun this weekend! And I have the usual roundup of links to share just in case you find yourself with some spare creative time over the next couple of days, as well.
