Catching My Eye | 09.04.20

Long weekend alert! I am so ready for three days off of work. It’s not that life has been any crazier than normal (some would argue it’s been slower with the pandemic) but it’s still nice to get three days off to do whatever I want to do. I picture this weekend being full of books, learning how to crochet, and cuddling with Maggie.

Let’s get into what’s been catching my eye this week…

one | this crochet kit
So, I’ve decided to become even more of a grandma and pick up crocheting! I am actually really excited about this new hobby. It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for forever, but I feel like I’ve never really had the time to learn? I’ve been wanting to have something to do with my hands while I watch Netflix so I don’t mindlessly scroll on my phone, and crocheting seemed perfect. One of my friends crochets and knits, so I’ll definitely be hitting her up for some tips!

two | tips on what to do when you’re feeling overwhelmed
I loved this simple article about what to do when you’re feeling overwhelmed. I think it’s important to remember that this is no magic button or productivity hack when you feel like your drowning in tasks and feelings — all you can do is be and cushion yourself with supportive friends and family members.

three | these adorable, beaded bracelets
I absolutely love these Little Words Project bracelets. I think it’s super important to keep messages that are close to your heart in sight every single day, and I would love to add one of these to my collection. I’m torn between Sunshine, Magic, and Be You.

four | this piece on vulnerability
I just finished Brené Brown’s Daring Greatlyso vulnerability is top of mind. I think it’s one of the hardest things to do, but also one of the most important things to make life really worth it. I loved this story/advice on how to be more vulnerable and it’s importance.

five | this book about marketing in the modern age
My friend loaned me Unmarketing: Everything Has Changed and Nothing is Different by Scott Stratten and Alison Stratten. I recently took over as the marketing chair of two non-profits, and while I’m pretty knowledgeable about the sector, I can always learn more. I fully believe we never stop learning, and I’m excited to continue digging into this book this weekend.

Happy adventuring,
