No Need For The Sunday Paper

Because, really...Who needs The Paper when you have so many wonderful links around the blogosphere! If you ever want to be featured, shoot me an email with your link and I'll be sure to check it out!

Fun With Mama: This blogger has some seriously great ideas! She's an Amercian Stay-at-home-mom living in South Africa. She does all sorts of super fun activities with her kids. One of which is her recipe for DIY Puffy Paint. And she put the paints in condiment squeeze bottles. Go have a look-see! She says she has seen this idea around other blogs. have you done a DIY puffy paint project? If so, leave a comment with a link. I would love to see it!

Scribbit: Story Dice. Little wooden blocks painted with everything from animals to methods of transportation. Roll the "dice" and make up a story based on what landed face up. So.....so...so...cute. And leave it to Michelle to execute this idea with simplicity and style!

The R Family Diaries: Her take on that ever evolving topic of Blogging For Dollars. She hits the nail on the proverbial head and I definitely think it is a "must read." Tiffany is one half of the brains behind the amazing blogger comment support site: The Secret is in the Sauce (afectionately known as SITS).

Speaking of SITS...There is still time to cast your vote for my entry in the Whrrl-sponspred contest for a ticket to SITScation! Be sure to click "I like it". Every "I like it" vote helps me get closer to winning. SITScation is a blogging conference put on by the SITStas and I so very much would like to go! So click on over and check out my photo story! You get to find out a little more about this crazy little life of mine.

Scripture For Sunday
Here is the kids Bible Verse for this month from church. My Son keeps saying it over and over. Maybe I should do that too.
The Lord is my helper.
Hebrews 13:6
The Lord is my helper...The Lord is my helper. The Lord is my helper. The Lord is my helper...
There is so much we can lern from our children.


  1. we have done puffy paint too.so much fun!

  2. YES, we did the puff paint a few months ago with this same recipe/bottle idea--LOVED IT!!

    Here is the link:

    It was such fun! The recipe originated here: www.lettersnumbersandbooksohmy.blogspot.com

  3. Puffy paint is a lot of fun! It's especially great to see it after it dries on the paper.
    A lot of blogs have tried it just go to google.com and type "puffy paint" altho I think the recipes are slightly different. As soon as I had seen it on one of the blogs I knew I had to try it. Also, stores sell ready made puffy paint in the crayons section. I bought that but haven't tried it yet. Ziplock bags work great too if u cut the hole small enough. Icing bags too.

    Thanks for mentioning my blog. I'm gonna go have a look now at your other recommended sites :)

  4. Wow the puffy paitn sounds like fun - I will go check it out!

  5. Thanks for the links! Fun With Mama looks like a great blog.
