Switching Days and Extra Links

Well, it's Saturday and I usually have a Song Lore post ready, but I am without today.  I don't know if it was the gloomy rain, or being tired from working so hard all week, or because it's 9/11 but I was just not inspired today.  Well, I did make some things and spent time getting organized in preparation for being creative, but I have ended up on the couch, editing photos and watching a Project Runway marathon.  I am listing some new Wholesale Bundles over on Etsy tonight, which is probably a good idea, since I temporarily closed my regular website for a few days so I can get fully caught up and ready for an art fair this weekend.

So today I am going to switch things around and share the week's Extra Links and hopefully tomorrow I will have a song inspiration to share with you.  Here are the links!
