Supersisters Weekend Roundup

international night

Here's this week's roundup of everything fun and good online and beyond. Feel free to add your own favorite parenting post or personal resource in the comments below.

Determined to get holiday cards out this year in record time and save a little bit of money in the process? Combine your favorite family pics with a little desktop magic to create lovely do-it-yourself greeting cards with these handy tips from our friends at Shutter Sisters.

One of our favorite finds this week was Amy Joyner of Knit Simply Knit. Amy is an fiber artist, living in an old farm house in rural Virginia. Eavesdrop at her table and prepare to be positively enchanted by the insight and kindness being served up daily.

This popular TED talk is just the medicine for those of you out there who've earned the reputation of being the parent who could land your child in the emergency room. Geek Dad has great commentary on doing dangerous things with your kids.

The air is crisp over here in Silver Spring, Maryland and I'm thinking that pumpkin picking might be in order. Check out these PBS approved activities to make this year's pumpkin a learning experience. For you political junkies out there, skip the math and help your kids carve out the image of your favorite political candidate.

Ok, Jen, perhaps this is off-topic, but I think we need an entry from you with tips for taking photos! I can't stop staring at this one and have loved many in the past. I'm in love with the lighting and color here. :)

if I had to choose between a day in the sun or basking in the glow of these beautiful faces, there would be no contest. to see loving faces such as these gives me great hope for a better world through the children of today. aren't they magnificent? your a master with the lens.
