Look Worthy Links - 6/4/11 Edition

I hope your summer is off to a fantastic start. I know ours is: we've been to the zoo, to a family cook out and we're off to a graduation party complete with swimming today.
1. This tutorial for printing on tags could come in handy for scrapbooking or really any kind of craft.

2. This coat rack from vintage trophies is genius. (Don't worry Pastor Dad or Bear, I'm not coming for your trophies any time soon.)
3. Speaking of genius, have you seen the final 10 words from this year's National Spelling Bee? I consider myself to have a fairly good vocabulary but I didn't recognize any of them.

4. Another creative recycling project: old jeans pants leg into little baby skirt. How cute is that little skirt?!
5. There's a new Ultimate Homeschool Blogroll where you can list your blog under what style of homeschooling you prefer (Charlotte Mason, Classical, Tradition, Unit Based, Unschooling, or Eclectic). I haven't joined up yet (mostly because I'm trying to decide just exactly what style I am...) but I plan to soon.

6. Speaking of that graduation party we're headed to, these little candy cup graduation caps would be great for any graduation related get together. Too bad my sister and brother-in-law have already had their party. I could have made them some of these. ("Could have" being the operative phrase. As in: could have but probably wouldn't have.)
7. I identified with most of these: 10 Myths About Introverts, but especially 1, 4, 5, 9, and 10.

8. Have I mentioned that we somehow missed the girl scout cookie season? Tragic. Not one little pigtailed tween tried to sell me the (overpriced) "Carmel Delites" (formerly Samoas) that I love. Way to fall down on the job, Girls Scouts of the USA. Anyway, maybe I'll make these homemade Samoa Bars to comfort myself.

Wow!- I love that introvert list. Probably because I am one :)

Enjoyed the introvert list too - took me a while to learn that about my sweet uber - introvert! Was wondering though if one can 'act' the extrovert at one's job because it is expected and a necessary part of the position, but truly be an introvert at heart.

Those words at the spelling bee - knew only Jugendstil - because it was a German word! Never heard of the other words - never mind spell them!!
