Life has been hectic lately, but I'm still taking some time to enjoy the Fall weather. Fall is my favourite season. I mean, don't get me wrong, I love Summer, but there is something comforting when September rolls around and suddenly there is a touch of coolness in the air at night. It's my favourite time to grab a cup of tea, bundle up in a heavy sweater and sit on the balcony with my iPad Mini. I've found some neat things online, so thought I'd share some links I've been loving lately...
▲ Christine at Just Bella made these beautiful flowers...Out of coffee filters! They are so stunning it's crazy to think they are just made from regular coffee filters. Get the DIY here and make some of your own.
▲ Katrina at Pugly Pixel has a new e-course called PS I Love You that will teach you some Photoshop techniques to use for styling your blogs and websites. I am totally going to sign up for this! For $25 you get 30 day access to the e-course. Katrina is a great teacher - her other e-course, CSS Pretty, is what I used to learn how to design this blog. And for your $25 you get access to both PS I Love You AND CSS Pretty - An amazing deal!
▲ I've mentioned Mr. Printables before and they have these new Free Printable Optical Illusion Lunchbox Notes available. Cute for putting in your kids' lunches for a fun, little surprise!
▲ I'm loving this blog lately - The Middle Finger Project. This post on 17 Pieces of Unfilterd Biz Advice You Should Have Gotten a Long Time Ago is a must-read for anyone who has their own business or who is in the process of starting one. (Via Breanna Rose on Twitter)
▲ If you love Pumpkin flavoured everything then you'll love this DIY Pumpkin Pie Lip Balm and Lip Scrub from Henry Happened.
▲ A Photographer's Perspective on Pinterest from Jasmine Star Photography. A bit about how Pinterest can really dampen the creative process (not help it). (Via Nubby Twiglet)
▲ For creatives who are thinking of starting their own business - What Do You Really Want To Be Doing All Day? A post from the Braid Creative blog about getting specific about your vision of your ideal work day. They also have a great worksheet you can print off to help you get specific about your ideas!
