Friday Funday

I’ve spent the last few days publishing the bi-monthly newsletter that my church puts out. It has kept me busy and it’s the most fun and creative part of my job because I get to experiment with simple design and page layout. You’d think that the church web site would be the most creative and fun but…. it’s not. It has caused me nothing but problems from day one. I absolutely adore wordpress for blogging purposes but it’d be nice to have a little more control over the website design. Or I guess I could teach myself .php. Maybe there’s an evening class in Wichita…?

Doug and I at In N Out in Dallas; my brain had a hard time understanding which state we were actually in. The photo will make more sense after you see link #1.

Anyway, Friday link roundups seem to be very popular among the blogging type. It’s not something I’m gonna do weekly, because face it, sometimes everyone links to the same stuff in a big-ol-circle of viral internet sharing. Kind of like pink-eye in a preschool class. You’re welcome for that comparison.

I am going to share a few cool things that have stood out to me this week.

  1. For our next cookout (we have a grill now!) I’m going to attempt this In N Out Double Double (animal style) copycat recipe.
  2. This “chicken chapel” is giving me big ideas for Mosey’s eventually-to-be-built doghouse. The only question is to start attempting to build it this fall or wait until spring? Maybe build it in the basement during the winter and then assemble outside? I’m getting excited.
  3. I would love to come up with some signature writing styles for this more modern take on calligraphy. “Why yes, you can pay me to address your wedding invite envelopes for you! ” Actually, not yet. Still have to practice more.
  4. Can I find a way to incorporate some kind of ribbon art installation (scroll down a few pictures, you’ll know it when you see it) into my house’s exterior? What kind of ribbon would hold up best against “the elements?”

Feel free to share something AWESOME that you did/saw/learned this week in the comment section.
