Fun Finds on Friday

I have another guest joining me for this week’s edition of Fun Finds – my friend Maggie, aka Gussy from Gussy Sews. Maggie’s site is full of inspiration, whether you’re looking for a DIY, indie business advice, or a refreshment of the soul. Be sure to check her out when you’re done reading here!

“Hey Wild Ruffle friends, it’s Gussy of Gussy Sews. I’m here to share five really great blog posts for on this fabulous Friday, a small portion of my absolute favorites that really spoke to me this past week. Running a handmade business + writing a lifestyle blog requires setting boundaries + knowing who/where to turn to for encouragement.

Do you find yourself in a similar situation? If so, PLEASE share your favorite blog post or bit of encouragement below! I can’t wait to connect with you in the comments!

xoxo, Gussy”

GUSSY’S FAVORITE READS:

1. Be online. But be offline, too. — by Simple Mom // Do you struggle with being offline? I do. Often. I seem to be really good at being online or being offline, but to find a mix of both? That’s something I’m working towards. Check out this post, Tsh constantly amazes me!

2. “We’ve been so busy.” — by The Tiny Twig // Hayley challenges us with this powerful question, “What would you gain from cutting out the busy?”

3. A people of his treasured possession. — by #SheReadsTruth // Such a beautiful post written by Jessi of Naptime Diaries. The focus this week is on Deuteronomy 7:6, “The Lord your God has chosen you to be a people of his treasured possession, out of all the peoples who are on the face of the earth.”

4. Apple, Basil and Feta Flatbread. — by A Beautiful Mess // I’m also looking for tasty, simple, beautiful dinners to make. Plus, this recipe includes three of my favorite ingredients! I can’t wait to make it this week :)

5. And on The 5th of June, She Created Quiet Because She Didn’t Want to be Like That Kardashian Mom. — by The Nester // I’m sensing a pattern here! ANOTHER post on the trending topic of quiet.

My thanks to Maggie for sharing some of her favorite finds with us! These articles found at these links really speak to my heart, and I hope they do the same for all of you. If you’d like to connect further with Maggie, you can find her on Facebook and on Twitter too.

  • If I could pick one season, it’d be fall. I’m in love with fall.  Sweaters and layers keeping me toasty warm all by themselves. No winter coats or snow boots to weigh me down. Not too hot. Not too cold. Heaven. And who could deny that relaxing with loved ones on a fall weekend retreat isn’t the… [Continue Reading]
