So many awesome things…so little time! Here’s today’s installment. Thanks to everyone who helped us out today!
Melody: Repurposing stuff that you already have is totally AWESOME.
“When we moved recently, I really needed a way to manage and organize all of my chunky long necklaces so they wouldn’t get tangled. I went out into the garage and found the beds my daughters used when they were younger….I can’t believe how well this works!!! I just lean them against the wall and they are so perfect, and can hold a LOT of necklaces….makes me SO SO SOOO HAPPY!!!!”
Kolleen: Awesome Soundtrack: “Into the Wild”
“This soundtrack is wonderful from start to finish. I never tire of listening to it and if you have seen the movie, each time you hear a song, it will take you right to that place in the movie. Eddie Vedder is one of my most favorite musicians…authentic, inspiring, raw talent.”
Courtney: Awesome Way to Write
Handwritten Letters with Swoony Pens
“I think letter writing is a true art form. More personal than a text or an email and so much more unique. I love the convenience of modern technology, don’t get me wrong, but gosh, there’s nothing like finding a letter–a REAL letter–in your inbox.
I just discovered an amazing local store website that offers fine writing instruments–pens and ink that you can’t buy at Wal-Mart. And there’s something awfully snazzy about a really nice pen. They have an awesome website here: http://www.signwithprestige.com/ and their tag line? Why settle for ordinary when you could be outstanding? I think I’ve just made that my new mantra.”
Chelsea: Awesome Thing About Loving Others
“To me, it’s a pretty special gift to be a mom and have the chance to give someone their very first experiences with love. How sweet to be able to teach our children how it feels to hold hands, to teach them how a hug somehow makes most everything a little better, to teach them how it feels to laugh with someone who loves you, to teach them the security and peace that comes with having a family who loves you….. to teach them what love is just by loving them….to me, that’s pretty awesome.”
Jeanne: Awesome Photo – The Universe
“When I see photos of the universe I am always in awe. I don’t know if it is a reminder how small we are or the realization how great the creator is. It is mind blowing and leaves me speechless…and for this girl that is saying a lot! ”
Kathy: Awesome Baby Gift
Aiden + Anais Swaddling Blankets
“I fell in love with these swaddling blankets when my daughter-in-law, Christy, had my grand-daughter, Lucy, wrapped in one. They are practically perfect in every way. They are the softest cotton gauze, super big, light-weight, and they get softer and softer and softer with every washing. They are perfect for swaddling and lots of other uses. They are kind of expensive (I’m a penny pincher), but they make a great investment because they will last for years, AND this week I found them at Target for $10 less than they are online! I picked up a set for my newest grand-daughter, Sophie, who is going to arrive in this world any day now!”
