Many Little Links: April 15, 2012

Some Places You’ll Find Me Writing This Week:

Arranging a Kid Swap at Simple Homeschool
I was excited to have a guest post published at Simple Homeschool this week.  Go check out an arrangement that a friend and I have that helps us each have a little free time each month.  (Plus, you can see Molly holding a chicken!)

Appropriate Picture Size for Walls at The Happy Housewife
I shared the reasons why it’s better to use large portraits and art on your walls (as well as the fact that 8x10s aren’t really large)

Links I’ve Enjoyed Lately:

Evernote is Still as Awesome as Ever – Small Notebook
I have just started using Evernote, and am really enjoying it.  If you haven’t checked it out, you can read more about it here.

Birds: April Unit Study – The Happy Housewife
Fabulous collection of resources for studying birds.  My kids would love this!

Chore Charts and an American Girl – Impress Your Kids
Amanda shares a great DIY chore chart for kids (and the story of her daughter saving her money for an American Girl doll.)

Buttery Coconut and Almond Morning Buns – Willow Bird Baking
Oh. my. word.  These look amazing and delicious and extraordinary and a bunch of other adjectives.

The Case for Seasonal Education – Simple Homeschool
I read this post and loved it.  Then, I wanted to kick myself because it has its roots in Thomas Jefferson Education, which I love, but have never been able to bring myself to actually do.  Boo for Angie!

My Version of the Workbox System – WV Urban Hippies
Love this dish rack version of the workbox system to save on space (and money!)

Backyard Playhouse – Family Fun Magazine
While I probably wouldn’t invest the money in this kind of project now that my kids are getting older, this is still a very cool project.

Angie Kauffman
Angie, a domestically challenged nerd and mom of three very fun kids, is the founder of Real Life at Home.  Angie also listens to music every chance she gets, writes eBookspodcastsloves Pinterestdocuments the little moments in life on Instagram, and occasionally sleeps.

    Love Evernote! Been using it for a while now to organize all my blog drafts. I don’t do nearly as much as I could with it, though . . . I know I have only begun to scratch the surface of it’s coolness.
