Things I Love Thursday

Welcome Thursday!  Thursdays have been my favorite day of the week for a long time, and its the day I get to share some links and fun things I've discovered that made me smile.  Today its cold and rainy outside...not really "summer weather" that you'd expect in June, but I'm enjoying it.  Soon enough it will be too hot to breathe in this dry desert area I live in.  But I digress... and now, on to today's links!   

>>>> Recently I saw someone who did a post like this and they shared their favorite Instagram pictures.  I thought that was a great idea! So here are 4 Instagram pictures that I liked recently.  I love the community part of Instagram too.

>>>> I'm a lover of fonts, and beautiful photography and great inspirational quotes.  All of these things are combined in this blog: 365Q which is where the artist shared his 365 project during 2011 with amazing images paired with quotes, one for every day of the year.  So as you can imagine, there is a lot to explore on this one! Here is one of my favorites from just the first page.

>>>> Speaking of 365, I recently purchased the 365 e-book for from Campfire Chic.  Lots of great content and ideas for blog posts, scrapbook pages and art journaling.  Its a great resource for its price and I look forward to using some of the prompts here on my blog.  Like this one for example: "What has blogging taught you?"  
>>>> I have been looking a lot at portrait artists on etsy and fell in love with these watercolor custom portraits from GirlandParrot. And this one especially.  

>>>> I'm sure everyone and their dog have seen this super cute proposal video, but I just loved it too much not to share.  Yay for community theater family!! 

>>>> And a song I've had on repeat the last couple weeks: Kimbra's "Settle Down."  I love this live version where she creates the arrangement with only her voice which she records and loops.  Its pretty awesome! 

>>>> And lastly, this great post about being your own kind of blogger.  Own it!  I'm working on this... Being me and blogging about it.  :)  Thanks for your wise words Amy! :D
