I love spring. So much. There's something so wonderful about the earth and air warming up, plants starting to grow, birds singing...I think it's really magical. This song is so energetic--it puts me in a great mood, which goes well with great weather!
Another pick courtesy of my brother--Magic by Walk Off the Earth! Enjoy!

I've said it before and I'll say it again--my brother has great taste in music. He (and the Modcloth blog and every hipster ever who blogs) recently directed me to The Lumineers.
Flowers in Your Hair is my favorite.

There's nothing I love more than spending a lazy afternoon at home. My brother always ends up gravitating toward his guitar or banjo (or drum kit or harmonica or fiddle or even tin whistle on occasion). Ian has been playing guitar since second or third grade, and he's really talented. I love hearing him play.
This year for his high school's Battle of the Bands, Ian and his friend Colin performed as Eastern Prairie, a bluegrass inspired duo. Check it out!
(Ho Hey by the Lumineers, Alone by Trampled by Turtles, and Little Lion Man by Mumford and Sons)
I'm so proud.

To borrow a phrase from Miss Morgan, I'm "rising from the blogging dead" today. Over the past month, blogging, crafts, hobbies, interests and fun have taken a backseat to school. I knew that switching into a math-and-science-based major would make this switch necessary, but once school started, I was too busy to even feel inspired. (On top of that, I don't currently have real access to a sewing machine/supplies/my Cricut/glue.) Today at work, ideas hit. And they just kept coming.
I'm trying to figure out a good system to keep track of all my ideas/save them for a rainy day. Right now I'm using these little notebooks from Target (similar) (they fit into any and all of my bags/purses/backpacks/etc).
Sometimes I use my phone, other times a sketchbook or SMASH book.
What works best for you?
