I am so thankful for the internet! My crafty spirit and mommy heart is full right now with all of the shared goodness out there! I have gleaned so much off the pages of fellow bloggers....It blows my mind too much if I sit and contemplate the continuing residual effects of posting and linking and sharing and commenting and...and....See, I am just blown away! So, before I get all worked up again, here are this weeks links:

Junior Mints and Reeses: Annie is new to my No Need for the Sunday Paper Links. She has made the most adorable framed homemade calendar!

A Bit of This and That
: Clever, clever, clever. Perfect for teaching your little ones fine motor skills and patterning, this activity is sure to please! Anyone know where to buy marbles?

Let's Explore: Cheerio Marshmallow Treats. A twist on an old standard!

Blissful Kids (A Channel of Blissfully Domestic): offers up some cuteness with their printed/painted animal gift wrap idea.

Make and Takes: Scrabble Tile Pendant- DIY Necklace that she shows you how to make on your own!

Dandelion Wishes

Carpe Quiltem
made an awesome version of my minute chocolate mug cake(a teacup, white cake and strawberry conserve! yummy!) that looks so delicious!

So, there you have it! Have fun reading (and drooling!)


And this Sunday's Scripture:

Philippians 4:4-9

4Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

8Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
