Have a wonderful weekend!

Link love 7-8-16 | Misselainious blogJust some things around the web I’ve been watching, reading, or enjoying.  Have a wonderful weekend friends! 🙂

How smartphone light affects your brain and body.

This letter to young creatives was really encouraging. It’s worth the read!

Wow.  This is beautiful.

Artist transforms old ring boxes into detailed historical dioramas.

The “tricky people” concept.  Every kiddo in your life should be taught this.

What an interesting article.  I’d love to hear your thoughts on this one!

This looks like an interesting salad.

This is a really neat idea for allowance.

    My husband has this one app that makes a reddish tint show up on his screen on his phone and on his computer so he uses them at night.

    I recently saw the van Gogh painting and it was really amazing how they did that with watercolor!

    Those little ring boxes have so much detail in them. Looks so hard to do.

    I’ve never thought about saying, “Thanks for waiting” instead of, “Sorry I’m late.” That is a great idea!

    I like the tricky people concept. I tell my boys to not trust people so easily but have not said to not talk to strangers. I tell them that it is not a good idea to quickly trust someone they don’t know, because sometimes that nicest looking people may not be so nice inside and might want to harm them. They know about human trafficking and slavery to an extent without graphic details and because I have relatives that are male who were sexually abused by people, I have always been more cautious for the boys.

    I don’t give my sons allowance. I don’t believe it is necessary since they should be doing their chores and be willing to help me out without expecting money in return. I didn’t get allowance either, but I started working at 15 and it made me very responsible with understanding to work hard because I had already been working really hard at home cleaning all the time (I like to clean). Most people don’t really get that in this culture, but in most cultures, there is no allowance at all. Those kids are not spoiled in those countries and do what they can for their families so I do the same for our boys. We’ll help them out when they are in need. They have money though from birthdays and such and if I don’t have enough money for things, they often say, “I have money. Do you want help for that? I will pay for it!” I say, “No, no. That is truly thoughtful of you and I hope you will want to help people in general, but I don’t want to use your money right now, darling.”

      That seems like a great idea! I’m trying to get off my phone earlier but it is challenging…

      I totally agree about the tiny boxes but they do seem like they might be fun thing to try and the options are endless.

      Yes, the “thanks for waiting” concept is great. Made me realize how much I say sorry….

      Victoria, I think it’s so wise that you do that with your boys. I’m not a mom yet but I think that informing children (in a tactful way of course like you are) is important.

      Haha yeah I didn’t have allowance either but if people are going to do that I think that teaching their children how to manage money is a great idea. Your boys sound so sweet! <3

    Loved the black water art! I want to learn how to do that!

      Yeah, it’s pretty mesmerizing! I hope you do take the time to learn that because it would be fun art medium to try. 🙂

    I love that open letter to young creatives. Having a mentor relationship can be such a valuable thing. In fact, I’ve been asking the Lord to send me a writing mentor for a little while now. That letter affirmed some of my thoughts about the topic.

    Those ring boxes are awesome! I look forward to checking out the rest of the links later…

      Diana, I agree! I hope you find a wonderful mentor. <3
