Netflix tip: My friend got me hooked on this show, I watched 6 episodes in one night. Addicting. It’s called Downton Abbey and it originally aired on BBC. Can’t. Get. Enough. I heard a rumor that there will be another season.

Tristin @ Two Girls Being Crafty

I love me some craft links but really appreciated reading the non-crafty "D-MER" article. I suffered terribly from post-partum depression and nursing issues–so while the D-MER phenomena is not one that I relate to specifically since my depression was constant, I still think that any time postpartum issue are talked about and studied it's a step in the right direction.

I mean, babies are great, but mommy carries around a lot of baggage once they come 'round. And I'm not talking about those pesky extra 5 pounds.

Jaime and Jacinda – Thanks SO MUCH for the feature of the wallpapered dresser from my blog. It means alot to me, especially since I'm pretty new with the blogging after procrastinating for nearly 2 years! I've put your button on my page – you can see it in the right column at:

Thanks again for the blog hug!


Oh, I LOVE Link Love!! So many amazing ideas, and you make it so easy to find!! Thanks so much for taking the time to do all the searching work for me!!! I have a few things to make!!


Thanks for all the links! They're really interesting. The embroidery ones really make me want to try a little harder at improving my embroidery skills. I'd been meaning to cancel my Netflix this month but maybe I won't so I can watch Downtown Abbey. I appreciate you posting the article about D-MER. I'm not sure I'd have ever known about it otherwise and it's good knowledge to have so you can reassure a friend and tell her to get more information if she mentions having symptoms.


Uh…I don't know if I should thank you or not for getting me addicted to Downton Abbey now!! I have been bored with Netflix, so I checked the show out after you mentioned it. Yeah, I watched it all in two days. My husband asked if I had turned into an 80yr old woman when he came downstairs and found me on the couch with my aphgan, watching Masterpiece Classics. I'm not 80…but I do talk with a British accent in my dreams now…
