Here are some cool things I’ve found around the internet this week:

Ruth Reichl’s Better Brownies

14 days of self-love by self-portrait photographer, Vivienne McMaster

How to pose subjects during their portrait sessions by Jasmine Star

SNL’s take on Downton Abbey. This cracks me up every time I watch it.

Didn’t make it to AltSummit this year? They now offer online classes. I’m psyched to take the photography ones!

Holiday Freebies

I am excited for Christmas this year (as everyone in a 5 mile radius can attest to). I am excited to put up the tree, write Christmas cards, bake cookies, watch Christmas movies, listen to the all-Christmas-all-the-time radio stations, make the huge turkey dinner, and spend time with friends and family. It’s not really a secret that I am trying to work double-time to make up for the lack of Christmas I had last year. Frankly, I’m going to Christmas the Christmas out of this Christmas.

In my efforts, I’ve been compiling a list of Christmas and Holiday freebies on the web. Instead of keeping those bookmarks to myself, I thought I’d share them with you… ’tis the season, after all.
