Compilation Blog Blog

I woke up bright and early this morning thanks to the yummy smells of breakfast being made and coffee brought to me in bed. This was a sweet welcome, especially as I have had trouble waking up early lately. My new bedroom is a bit darker than what I'm used to so it makes it hard to have the discipline to get out of bed.
The early wake up gave me plenty of time to catch up on some blog readings and I thought I would make a small compilation of neat stuff here.
For instance, at Angry Chicken Amy shows this sweet little birthday box she made for a lucky birthday boy. I think this is a really neat idea. I always like buying my nieces and nephews art supplies and this is a fun way to put it all together. Get the details here.
And then I saw this amazing tent on Decor8 made by Timothy Karpinski. Read more about it here.

And on the blog A Beautiful Mess I learned that Jenny Lewis and her boyfriend are putting out a cd together. Yowza yay! Go to the blog to get the link for a free download.
Also is anyone else doing the 30 Day Journal Challenge on Running With Scissors? It's been hard for me to keep up because of moving and starting a new job but I was able to finish to pages and get them uploaded. I have a few more done but have not had access to a scanner lately so I hope to get them up and going soon. See the images below. It's never too late to join. See more pages but other participants in the Flickr Pool here.

Now it's still early and I have plenty to do today. Plus I work tonight. Plus I'm going away tomorrow for a whole wedding weekend. I'm excited!
Have a great day!

I love the box of stuff! I want it! :D

Here it doesn't get dark at night during the summer. At all. I have a curtain which is supposed to make the room dark but it doesn't work.
