Weekend Roundup

Any fun plans this weekend? It’s the season of birthdays, as they put it at Henry’s school since all the kids in his Pre-K class have birthdays between October and January (that’s why they’re in Pre-K and not Pre or K). So, we’ve got a few parties to hit (and cake to eat and pinatas to wack). I also need to start working on some neighbor gifts and get serious about gift buying. I’m always so last minute with that category, even though it’s kind of a big one! Have a great one! Here are a few links to check out:

Aren’t those giant pom poms (image above) gorgeous? I’m loving the creativity happening on Julep right now, the new lifestyle blog by Minted I helped launch last month.

I’m teaching an Advertising for Bloggers online video class this Monday at 1pm PST. Snag a spot here before they fill up.

I’m obsessed with making pom poms right now! I can’t believe how easy they are to make. And how fun it is to snip snip snip them into the right shape–simple pleasures!
