Something for the weekend

It's Friday!

It's Friday, it's Friday, I'm so glad it's Friday! Oh, I love weekends. Bless them every one. I'm about half an our away from sous-chefing for Espen while he makes us tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches for dinner (he has a dinner night now!) which we will eat while watching a movie together. We've done that a couple of times now, and I think that might be a new Friday night tradition for us. But before I do that, let me share a few things with you that caught my eye this week:

  • This Czech teenager incorporates everyday objects in his drawings, and the results are so clever and charming. I love the Kit Kat piano! :)
  • My clever and talented friend Danyelle invented a rescue tool for people who are lost, and it's so clever! Check out (and support!) their Indie Gogo campaign here
  • The Making Table has a really fun tutorial up for a fun art project featuring cloth donuts that your kids can make*. And be sure to poke around the rest of the site too, there are so many great ideas for art projects for families. 
  • Everything Emmy posted this Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe, and I seriously think we might have to try them this weekend. She says there is no perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe, but I'm thinking these ones have got to come pretty close! 
  • This engaged couple were aged by makeup artists to see what they might look like as they grow older together, and it ended up being a really touching little video. 
  • Speaking of touching little videos, I love this video that a Norwegian film maker made to help him mom find the love of her life. It really is the sweetest thing! Also, his mom is such a cool lady. 
  • These are true words. 
  • A Hanna Andersson catalog found it's way to my mailbox, and I think I would like one of each of everything for me and the kids, but especially this dress for Gwen. I mean, shut the front door, how cute is that! They have a home goods section too, which I'm a little bit afraid to even look at. OK, I just peeked and I'd better go hide my credit cards. 
Have a good weekend!

*Yup, that is me and the kids in some of the photos on The Making Table's website. Krisanne is a lovely friend of ours, and we are lucky enough to be able to go to some of her classes.
