Happy Links: From Christmas to Creativity

{Every week, I publish a series of inspiring links. Enjoy!}

Elves from the land of Red Bluff, CA stopped by our cottage on Christmas Day and they gifted us a new bedspread with matching pillows! Visiting with the elves was the highlight of our day because Logan and I have colds. We decided to rest and recover at home, rather than passing this bug onto our family. I was sad to miss Christmas family fun, but I’m grateful for a cozy bed, snuggly cats, and hot showers.

I hope your Christmas was lovely and restful. I’ll be back with articles and photo essays in the new year! Until then, you can find me on Instagram and Facebook.

Now onto this week’s happy links …

Recently, I've been obsessed with podcasts. For example, I listened to all 12 episodes of Serial in a few days. It's fantastic! Also, I listened to Lawrence Bartley's story on Death, Sex & Money last week. The radio segment brought me to tears. It was powerful.

Here's a video of my most liked Instagram photos from 2014. Big Red wins the show!

I'm in love with The 2015 Desire Map Day Planner!

Good reads: Sick versus healthy: when language fails / Dealing with sadness on the road / Simple thanks for being more with less.

I added a resource page to RowdyKittens. It's brief list of the creative tools I use everyday. I will add more tools to the list in the future. Let me know if you have questions about the list.

"Create your own Kindle e-book" looks like a fantastic read.
