No Need For The Sunday Paper

Muffin Tin Monday is tomorrow! I have now included Mr. Linky and will also be accepting non-themed Muffin Tin Meals if you happen to do that instead of the current theme. Tomorrow's Theme: Muffin Tin Monday Goes AWOL (Away Without Official Leave - Thanks Ruby!), so take your muffin tin to another place other than where you normally eat them (the car, the park, the backyard, or even a bedroom!) You can also link more than once or from a previous post if you have another post where your muffin tin was served in another location! I am looking forward to tomorrow everyone!

now...on to today's links....

This week has been interesting for links...lots of good stuff out there!

Ever wonder if it's okay to stumble your own post? (ahem, cough, ahem...I did) Grow Your Writing Business answers this question for anyone who has ever thought about it (ahem...)

Heidi at Blue Eyed Blessings is one of my crafting go to's...When I need an idea for something around my house our how to make to rev up an idea that's brewing in my head about a party. I go to Heidi's blog and scour her crafts and creativity posts.

You ladies know how I love literacy. ABC/123 Learning has a fabulous post on how to set up a wrtiting center for your child. It's comprehensive and detailed. Go have a look-see!

Found a new blog friend this week, Teresa at the Tysinger Family Adventures. She shared a post with me that I want you all to read! The Up and Down Obsession With Baby. It's poignant and uplifting and worth the read!

Did you know that Katy of Sycamore Stirrings is the one who started Muffin Tin Monday?? She passed it on to me last October when she moved to Luxembourg. She has a tutorial for a home puppet theater that I plan to make very soon! If you are still experiencing inclement weather where you, I think this might be a must -have!

Now, I know that a big list, but trust me, they are worth the click over.

Scripture For Today:
Who we are...
Isaiah 62:12 (NIV)
12 They will be called the Holy People,
the Redeemed of the LORD;
and you will be called Sought After,
the City No Longer Deserted.
Who God is...
Who is this coming from Edom,
from Bozrah, with his garments stained crimson?
Who is this, robed in splendor,
striding forward in the greatness of his strength?
"It is I, speaking in righteousness,
mighty to save."
