No Need For The Sunday Paper

This weeks super fabulous links:

The Pleated Poppy: Having family rules posted in your home doesn't mean you have to go out and purchase white posterboard- the PP shows you how she made her family rules look like art - art on canvas. (found via Rocks In My Dryer)

Pink and Green Mama: DIY Preschool Peg Board. I'm all about learning activities that I can do at home with my little ones. Aparently these are all over the web, this was the first tutorial I had seen. She does a great job!

Turnitup Mom: Got a picky eater? She has some great tips on how to work with your child.

Scripture For Sunday

Jeremiah 18:1-6

1 This is the word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD : 2 "Go down to the potter's house, and there I will give you my message." 3 So I went down to the potter's house, and I saw him working at the wheel. But the pot he was shaping from the clay was marred in his hands; so the potter formed it into another pot, shaping it as seemed best to him.

5 Then the word of the LORD came to me: 6 "O house of Israel, can I not do with you as this potter does?" declares the LORD. "Like clay in the hand of the potter, so are you in my hand, O house of Israel.

    You have a great blog. I'm so impressed that I am featuring you as my Site of the Day for Tuesday (Oct. 12). I hope you will swing by then!

  3. Thanks so much for including me here! I have wanted to create something with our family's core values, so thanks for sending me over to the Pleated Poppy too :)

  4. I LOVE the idea of the family rules, except that when I saw the photo, I thought it was a quilt. I'm a quilter, and now I have it in my head that I must make a wallhanging like that! My son is only 2, so we haven't really thought a lot about family rules, but I know there are a couple that are very important to my husband and I (like honesty). I love that the project gets you thinking about what kind of ideals/lessons you'd like to instill in your kids and how you want to define your family.
