Design Lovefest Wallpaper: Want to know something bizarre? I added additional desktops to my computer just so I could have more screen savers. Puh-thetic. But they are super cute. If you didn’t realize this was a young mom blog, I just said “super cute”, and that’s your clue.
CRF Fair Trade Chocolate: I wrote a bit about this at CatholicMom.com, but here is the skinny. There is nothing skinny about it. This is straight up delish chocolate, and it’s fair trade, and it’s a Catholic organization. Triple whammy, anyone?
Clementine Patterns: So I started teaching myself to embroider. Yes, with the hoop and a needle. And I think about old lady things and also about how I am cooler than you. Seriously though, if you want to get into it, I have a bunch of blogs that I love, and if you need a starter kit, Clementine Patterns is my fave.
This G.K. Chesterson Quote: “If a thing is worth doing, it is worth doing badly.”
Our deacon used it as part of his homily this week, and I love it. Think about it: usually we say it is worth doing right. But, often it gets overwhelming to do something the right way. Overwhelming to the point that we don’t even try. But, if something is truly worth it, we should be willing to give it a go regardless of whether or not we have it figured out. We should be willing to make mistakes and keep going. Knowing you don’t know it all and committing to something anyway? That tells me it is worth it.
