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.

    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.
