I love my iPhone


I've been searching for an app for my iPhone to help me stay on top of my favorite blogs, and I finally found it with Pulse. I was able to load in all my favorites- it syncs up with Google Reader- and now I have all this great reading material right at my fingertips. It's so great when you have a few minutes to kill, whether it's waiting for an appointment, during a commercial break (I multitask), or sitting at a red light (OK, totally kidding about that last one). You can keep your blogs in different categories that make sense to you. Each blog pans across the screen with a square for each post. When you tap on the post, it will first show you a simplified text-based version, but if you tap on it again, it will take you directly to the source. It grays out once you've read it so you can easily tell what you still need to look at. If you read as many blogs as I do, you NEED this app (and oh, by the way, it's free!).

Check out my tutorial on how to make these!

Stamped Spoons
You may have already seen my stamped garden markers post from earlier this week, but I've still got them on the brain. I'm trying to figure out exactly what I want to say with my leftover spoons (and, you know, find excuses to buy more old spoons). Also, I realized that some of you may love the spoons but don't want to make them yourself. Lucky for you, they are all over Etsy. Here are a few of my favorite finds:
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and Happy 4th of July!
