spring teaser and link love

RoboRoku_LittlesCollection-
Here’s a peek at some new Robo Roku goodies for Spring/Summer 2015. We’ll be adding new tees soon, and more accessories next month! You can shop The Littles Collection here. We’re behind listing new goodies because things here have been pretty hectic. I’ll share more about that in the next “the haps” post.

Here are some things I’ve stumbled upon recently…

I totally want to make this pasta dish recipe from A Beautiful Mess. There’s a packaged mix I buy sometimes that I enjoy, but making it fresh will be so much better.

What if Morrissey lyrics were motivational posters? There are some pretty cute/funny posters in this list.

This post from The Dainty Squid addressing the awful term “real job” really hit home for me. As an artist it’s really hard to get respect for what you do. I think because people don’t understand the “mechanics” behind making a living as a creative they act like your job is not real. If you have ever used them term “real job”, I beg of you to never use it again. It is so demeaning to all the hard work and hours spent learning and building a viable business that supports you. If you are a maker/artist/designer/blogger and are not at the level of making your sole income from it, please call your main source of income job your “other job”, and don’t belittle “different” ways of making a living.

I shared a link on Twitter to Gala Darling’s post “Feeling Burned Out? Ask Yourself This One Simple Question…” and friends were totally loving it. I thought I should share it here too, just in case Twitter is not your thing.

Speaking of Twitter, if you need help figuring it, out here’s a nice little cheat sheet.

Here’s an artist on Instagram I love following.

Sort of a follow up to the “real job” thing: Why Creatives Don’t Succeed In Traditional, 9-To-5 Work Environments.

This week has been a little rough, but watching The Goldbergs always makes things better. If you grew up in the 80s, you need to watch this show. It’s amazing.

Seriously, go check out The Goldbergs.
