@FreshStitches – @carinaeh My difficult students are ones who already know a little, & aren’t open to new ideas. Then, they end up disappointed! #craftsocial
- Greenwoman is offering a monthly fiction-writing challenge. (Thnx to participant Delisa Carnegie for leading me in this direction!)
- @ArtonmyBlog is offering an opportunity to be featured on their weekly Artists Showcase. (via Monette Satterfield of “The Artful Business”)
I adore this video which came to me via the TwitterStream from JessVanDen
“A friend shared this on FB, and it always makes me laugh – ‘Dangerous Wands‘ – one for the #Potter fans!”

- Victoria Brouhard gives us this power vid-post about how to reassure yourself that if you couldn’t do it, you wouldn’t want it. (via AmySeyBrown)
- These may have been originally designed for the feline of the species, but I am hear to tell you that catnip makes very fine sachets for humans too! Great for soothing those everyday jitters. (I tucked one of our catnip pouches in my sis-in-spirit’s bag on her wedding day – calmed her right down!)
- And speaking of kittys, you could do a whole lot worse than learning from one.
- Heidi of ‘Heidi’s Table’ has an awesome post describing the cityscape of new growth.
There’s more out there of course.
There’s always more.
But for now, I must away, to search out new goodies & delights for next time.
If you have anything you’d like me to include in upcoming editions, please let me know.
If you have questions or comments on things you’ve seen here or that you’d like to see in upcoming editions, let me know those too.
Until next time!
Chirp, chirp! :>
PS if you want to be included in our weekly round up tweet a link to Birdy or leave a comment. We use Comment Luv here so your latest post will show.
Her goals are lofty: to create ripples that will change this World for the better by sharing stories that let people know that the paranormal is normal, the Other is not automatically to be feared, and our destinies are in our own hands.
Her Dreams are bigger still: to share those stories via episodic internet television, taking advantage of the changes in the World to keep control and direction of her tales, to share the modern version of a Bardic Circle.
You can find the text versions of her stories under the pseud BardicRaven at Archive of Our Own and the audio versions of them (and these posts) on the JourneyBirds' YouTube channel. She is also known to make the occasional Fannish comment on Tumblr.
If you'd like to help bring their stories to life, check out their Patreon page and become a Patron.
