My Friday Favorites 01/10/14


one day late!  here are all the things I am loving this week-

On TV –

  • White Collar  – Is Peter going to take the job in D.C.? Will Neal and Peter ever be the same again? Lots of “what ifs” happened in this episode – but there was no bigger question then this one: Who is this Rebecca and did she really con the original conman Neal?

On the Computer 

  •  Chalk This Up As Done from Hi Sugar Plum – this great before and after piece shows a creative way to decorate a small nook in your home and give a small throw away end table a whole new look.

On the Page –

  • Parents Magazine February 2014 issue – How to Un-Spoil Your Child by Denise Schipani. I don’t know about you, but I’m at the stage where I think “should I just give in to my 2 year old? Just for a little peace and quiet?” After the article was a quiz to see where you are on the spoiler scale!  The pictures below are screenshots from my tablet. The article isn’t online – but here is one with a similar theme from Redbook Maagazine / WebMD – Unspoil Your Child

In my Inbox- 

  • I feel like Martha Stewart is personally talking to me this week…the subject line of Martha Stewart Livings’ email this week was 4 Organizing Resolutions for 2014 … and the first two were: Organizing the basement and setting up a craft area!  A Pipe and Wire map of your basement – pretty genius idea, Martha! Then she posted this picture on Instagram – and titled it Color-Coded Crafting.  Ok Martha, I see we are are the same wave length in 2014! Hope that is a good sign for me!
