Roll the Dice!

I saw these cute items on this gals blog. She sells things on Etsy here. But the thing that especially caught my eye was the dice! This could be used as a possible craft at girls camp this year. I like what she put on the sides of the die....Serve Others, Email a friend, Pray Often, Listen the the Still Small Voice, Make time for FAMILY, Study Scriptures for 15 minutes.

Kids Aprons and Hats

HomeSpun Threads has these adorable kids aprons and hats for sale in her Etsy shop. Actually, she is selling a pattern to make these! I just had to show you how cute they were!

Case Tutoritals

I have seen a few tutorials that I have liked in the past and had lost them (forgot to blog about them!). So I am adding them to my 'Where Did I See That?' blog so I can find them when I need them!!

This one is for a Cosmetic Bag. Here is the tutorial. Mountain Mom did a nice job.

Skip To My Lou has a very nice tutorial here for a small zippered pouch.

She also has a nice tutorial on reversible tote bags here.

She also has a quick and easy tutorial for a tissue holder here.

Gourmet French Toast

This gal has loads of good looking recipes. I thought I would like to try this one and didn't want to loose her recipe. This is the recipe for her Gourmet French Toast. It's one of those recipes where you prepare the night before and then bake the next morning. Love it!
She even shows how she made her berry sauce. Yummy....!

While you are there at her blog, read about how her finance proposed to her on Barkerella's blog! It made me tear up :o)

Sunday Snack Bar

I love this idea for taking snacks to church or shopping in order to help keep kids occupied. This mother posted about it here. Isn't she smart?! I love the name she gave it "Sunday Snack Bar"!

Here is what she said -
Buy a craft container from walmart/joanns, etc ($1-3). You can also buy small plastic fishing tackle boxes from your local hardware store.
Fill each empty space with small finger foods for your child (age appropriate of course)

-Chocolate Chips
-Little Fishy Crackers
-Mini Marshmallows
-Fruit Snacks
-All kinds of cereal (cheerios, kix, lucky charms,)
-Small Crackers

*This really helps my two year old quiet down in church. He loves the variety of snacks to choose from. Life saver...seriously!

*My container is actually "Child proof" so he can't get into it all by himself. It's also nice because it won't spill in his diaper bag. You just need to push in the button on the side while opening the container.

Family Rules

While catching up on my blogs, I found these 2 great ideas for family rules boards. My family is grown and gone, but perhaps you can use the ideas. Actually, I may make up a board with grandma house rules for when the family visits.....1. hug grandma 2. make cookies with get the jest :o)

This clever gal shares how she made this one here.

Gal number 2 is super duper talented. Look at her post here!

Why couldn't I have just a teeny bit of some of these gals natural talent?

Marshmallow Witches

These are cute and what kid would love to get their little hands on one? Taste of Home has the recipe here!

A Very Merry UnBirthday

You have GOT to see this blog!! This is WAY too cute of an idea for a birthday party! What a clever girl this mother is and what lucky little girl the daughter is!
