Link Roundup

I am back to doing the Link Roundups. I came across these links and just had to save them for sharing. I hope to get back into doing this regularly. In the meantime, enjoy these links.

  • How to Make a Sponge Ball for Summer DIY; Crafts; for kids
    Another variation: Summer Sponge Bombs

  • DIY Sun Jar using Solar lights. You could also use the LED candle lights.

  • Pledge of Allegiance Sign DIY; Crafts
    This post has a wonderful tip on how to get those crisp lines of letters when painting

  • Defense Against the Dark Arts
    Please do not read this link if you're offended by Harry Potter references. With that said, I thought this was an interesting read.
    “We all have shame. We all have good and bad, dark and light, inside of us. But if we don’t come to terms with our shame, our struggles, we start believing that there’s something wrong with us – that we’re bad, flawed, not good enough – and even worse, we start acting on those beliefs. If we want to be fully engaged, to be connected, we have to be vulnerable. In order to be vulnerable, we need to develop resilience to shame.”
