Well, I’m back from a lovely, crafty, busy weekend in San Francisco! I want to post all about it tomorrow along with some pictures, but in the meantime, here are a few nice things I’ve run across online lately:
Craftlog has just created a very, very Good Thing: a searchable archive of all the Martha Stewart magazines back and current issues, Marthadex! Just type in “cupcake” or “pomegranate” and everything related will pop up instantly, organized by issue date and title. So cool. Thanks to Junior Society for tipping me off to this one.
I originally saw WalkScore on Apartment Therapy and then it was profiled on the excellent new blog Tiny Choices — I love it. Just type in your street address and the site gives your neighborhood a walking score from 1-100, based on how close necessities are and how walking-friendly it is in general. My neighborhood scored an 86! Which I can attest to wholeheartedly, since I walk it every day.
I missed the boat on this one completely, but Nancy of Belle Epoque just organized a very nice online recipe swap and posted the results: everything from mozzarella-stuffed arancini to buttermilk-cornbread soup. I’m bookmarking it right now and excited to try out some new things! Nancy, if you accept shamefully late entries for an encore, I’ll write something up soon…
[ps: if those recipe swap links above are at all weird, just go to Belle Epoque directly and look at the August 9th and 17th entries!]
