If you’ve been reading Snippet & Ink for awhile, then you know that every Friday I post links to some of my favorite finds from around the web. But if you’re new here (welcome!), and if you’re a bride (or groom!) in the midst of planning a wedding, then you might be wondering why a wedding blog has a weekly post dedicated to things that are (mostly) not wedding related. If you’re a bride or groom, you know that wedding planning, while usually delightful, can also be stressful and often all-consuming. So just think of this as a pause button; a chance to take a breather from the wonderful world of weddings…

BIG monthly planner to get the year started off right.

Amazing what artist Elsa Mora can do with a little paper and glue.

Marshmallows? Cornflakes? Chocolate chips? These are quite possibly the best cookies I’ve ever had.

A little something blue for your ears?

I don’t really do New Year’s resolutions, but I do like the idea of choosing one little word to focus on for the year. Or thinking of resolutions like this. What about you? How are you kicking off 2014? However you think about new beginnings, let me wish you all the best!

Good luck charms by Raphael Kirchner via Ginny’s Pinterest.

Pie-shaped strudel.

Cork keepsakes.

Happy, happy New Year!
