Weekly Crossover: Hanna Marin x Amy Farrah Fowler

Trendy glam meets vintage quirkiness.Hanna Marin from Pretty Little Liars and Amy Farrah Fowler from The Big Bang Theory are both popular television characters, but they are also known for their senses of style. So for this Weekly Crossover, I'm going to mix their vibes.Hanna's trendy-glam vibe mixed with Amy's modest, vintage-quirky style can seem like a really weird pairing at first (after all, people would think of Hanna as more fashionable than Amy), but I'm hoping these outfits will leave y...

Mitten Strings ~ a conversation continued!

Hello my friends, and Happy (almost) Friday! :) On Facebook the other day I shared a beautiful post by Katrina Kenison, author of one of my favorite "mothering" reads of all time, Mitten Strings for God: Reflections for Mothers in a Hurry. Some longtime readers might remember back in 2008 when I ran a chapter-by-chapter book study of Mitten Strings here at the blog - and oh, what fun we had with that!

Fractal education

I love fractals. They are essentially art made from maths. The Mandelbrot set pictured here is one such fractal, and I sometimes use it in my talks to illustrate a key educational point.Fractals are varied, but the self-similar patterns such as the Mandelbrot Set replicate their patterns at every iteration, perfectly repeating themselves almost to infinity. Essentially fractals represent recursive mathematical equations, but don't ask me to explain exactly how they work - I'm not a mathematicia...

3 ways to cope with bullying

There were mornings I hated going to school, because I knew what might be waiting for me just inside the school gates. Bullying is an ongoing, endemic problem in schools, where children who are vulnerable can be made to feel they are on the outside, lonely, hated by those who are meant to be their classmates.My own daughter Amy was continually bulli...

They blogged about everything that happened. They captured images and wrote narratives around them. They video recorded throughout the day. They interv...
