Many Little Links: September 12, 2011

I’ve had a busy weekend away at a scrapbooking bed and breakfast with friends, but I’m so happy to be home now!  (For the record – I haven’t scrapbooked in years, and spent the weekend working on paintings instead.)

Quick note – if you’ve thought about doing a 12 of 12 project, consider this your reminder that today is now the 12th.  It’s time to starting taking pictures and pick out your favorite 12.

Here’s some great links to go check out:
