Luster Cluster: necklaces, half marathons, things to read and make

May 3, 2012

While nursing, I spend a lot of time on my iPhone these days, and I have found a ton of fun things I want to share with you. Here’s the latest Luster Cluster installment!

I’m hoping to try this recipe very soon… crusty bread made with minimal effort. Keep an eye out for a future Friday Feast!

Guest KateSchmate poster Emily finished her second half marathon, and I was enthralled reading about her experience. If you want to run the Nashville Country Music Marathon next April, here’s a good account of what to expect! Love this girl!

I should have made these for my niece’s birthday party! How adorable!

Other KateSchmate guest poster Jessica talks about her epic and awesome recycling solution. Talk about serious stuff. I’m impressed!

I really enjoyed this article on “How to Avoid the Comparison Trap,” which I feel consistently lurks while I try to be creative myself. Becka shares some practical tips on how to minimize comparing yourself to those with seemingly better ideas.

Just a pretty necklace for ya!

I love this card from Sycamore Street Press! Perfect for Mother’s Day.

Random thing going on in my head these days… what should I do with my hair? I’m trying to avoid the new-mom-haircut where I just chop all my pretty locks off out of convenience and ease. I love my hair, but it’s becoming increasingly annoying to keep up with when I’d rather, say, eat breakfast than do my hair! Lately, I’ve just been pulling it back every day (see pic below), but does anyone have any new-mom-hair tips? Wouldn’t it be fun to just have this dipped hair hue that Anna sports? Maybe I’d wear it down more if it had something fun done to it. Does it get better? Should I stick it out?

PS: I have waaaaay more gray hair now than from this post from 2009…

Oh I love Amaretto Sours. Friend Graham sent along this great recipe… someone please make it for me!
