Weekend Links

Some exciting news: I'll be speaking at Dream Rock, a very special 3-day retreat in Sedona, Arizona, February 4-6, 2015. The week is all about providing knowledge that will help you start or grow your creative business, and the three days will be full of discussions (I'll be speaking about the blogging side of things) and valuable networking...and some fun extras like watercolor and calligraphy classes, yoga, and more! Craft Culture Events is offering a flash sale through August 31 and seats are limited to only 30 people (!!!), so check it out, reserve your spot, and come hang out with me in the beautiful red rocks of Sedona for a few days. For more info, visit I hope to see you there- it would be amazing to meet some Sometimes Sweet readers.

And then one more thing before we get into the links- last week This Bar Saves Lives sent us a box of their bars to try and they are SO good and I wanted to pass them along. We each loved different flavors but mine was definitely the Dark Chocolate Cherry Sea Salt (yes it tastes as good as it sounds!). I also love that they have such a great mission- in a nutshell they give a packet of lifesaving food to a child in need with every bar purchase. Learn more about them here, through this cute video. And p.s. use code "sometimessweet" for 20% off. If you do order, let me know what you think- I bet you'll love 'em!

And now, some links! Enjoy, and have a great weekend. xo

This is such a fun read- Back to School: the '70s versus today.

  6. Yes, this WAS the worst summer ever! I wrote a post a few weeks ago about how I was ready to totally tune out from the news because bad stuff was happening at such a breakneck pace.
