No Need For The Sunday Paper

It's that time again...Sunday, where I share links from around the web that inspire! Who needs the paper with links like these?

Here they are:

Make and Takes: While it might be too late to whip up these adorable Chenille Pipe Cleaner Flowers, who says you can't make them together as a family on Mother's Day? Make them for Aunties, Grandma's and Sisters too!

Found in the "Ali": No-sew halter top (found via dollarstorecrafts.com) . I am inspired by the simple and easy contruction of this reconstructed t-shirt. Makes me want to go dig through my t-shirt drawer and resurrect some oldies but goodies.

Mama Dramalogues/guest post by Elegant Bloggery: I am in love love love with these adorable little fairy peg dolls! They are full of whimsy and charm and would make the perfect playmates for any little girl.

Somewhat Simple: I still am baffled when I find a new-to-me blog. I mean, I read a lot of blogs and I can't fathom missing out on all the goodies that are at Somewhat Simple! For instance, this school days paper filing system is perfect for our family! It's functional and creative and an inexpensive solution for an ever mounting school paper problem! (I found Somewhat Simple through the lovely Creative Triplet Mom)

Confessions of a Homeschooler: Erica has compiled a fabulous review of her alphabet activities, complete with links and photos and free downloadable pages. While the kids are home this summer (and maybe before) we are going to be doing a lot of these for sure!


Proverbs 3:5-6 

 Trust in the LORD with all your heart 
       and lean not on your own understanding;

 in all your ways acknowledge him, 
       and he will make your paths straight.


  1. I love your blog! I especially love no time for the sunday paper -which I get sunday night in Japan- because it turns me onto exactly the kind of blogs I don't have time to hunt for but contain something that seems just right for me and my kids.

    Thanks so much for your blog and the resources you provide to Moms (and their kiddos) everywhere.


  2. YES! Erica's alphabet activities are awesome! We've tried one already! =)

  3. How cute are those fairies, I am looking forward to monday and my next try at muffin tin monday

  4. Happy Mother's Day to you! I hope you have a great Day!! I will go and check out a few of your links...thanks!

  5. Your photo today really caught my eye. I look forward to your Sunday Paper posts. Thanks and Happy Mothers' Day!

  6. Yay, what a surprise to see my fairy peg dolls here! Thanks, Michelle!

  7. I agree those fairy peg dolls are wonderful, I've seen tutes for painting dolls like that before but never to turn them into fairies. I don't think I have the skills or a steady enough hand to actually make them myself. Mine wouldn't be nearly as cute.

  8. I'm the same way when I find a new blog that is right up my niche. Like whaaat?! Where has this been all my life!
