Shades of Red

Tuesday, October 26, 2010

Our kitchen is decorated in red and black right now. So when we moved in and I started finding some of my clearance treasures from Hobby Lobby, I decided they needed a coat of paint. I got this cute thing for less than 3 bucks. Don't miss out on their clearance sales in January/February. They go crazy getting rid of fantastic home decor stuff. It will eventually be on 90% off. Not bad!!Then I also picked up these lovelies from the Dollar store. Oh, I love dollar store frames with some pizazz.
I added some extra fabric I had and an Eiffel Tower decal in vinyl that I used my Cricut to cut out. SUPER easy!!Put it all together once again....I love how it turned out and my red basket I already had with some bright yellow bananas or oranges, adds just a punch of color that makes me smile every time I see it.

Kid's Sites

Monday, October 25, 2010

Anyone else's kiddos love the computer? My son wants to be on the computer all the time lately. I have been taking a break from it lately. I rarely look at blogs. I have been bad about blogging on here or on my personal blog. I don't really get into facebook much lately. I don't know what my deal is but it just is not that intriguing to me right now. So it is nice to have a break from the computer and let my little man have some fun instead!

Of course there are the regular sites like PBS Kids, Disney or Fisher Price. But I also love Star Fall. Such a fun one to help with sounding out words and learning to read. My little man is obsessed with this one lately. Plus there is a fun pumpkin making face one that is too cute! Just in case any of you are looking for some computer fun for little ones that actually teach them stuff too. Check it out!!

There is also a fun freeware program called Baby Smash that my 15 month old likes to use when she "smashes" on the keyboard. It tells them the letters/numbers of what they are hitting and also has shapes and does a song if they use the mouse. It is cute to keep them entertained and included for 10-15 minutes.

Oh, and no. I am not getting paid to tell you about any of these. I just love them that much. I wanted you to love them too!! Keeping kiddos entertained all day long can be a real feat so any help I can get is much appreciated. I figured those of you with kids might feel the same way!!

Do you have any other great sites I don't know about for kids? I love to hear about new ones. So do share. Really. Because the songs/sounds of sites do start to get a tad annoying after you hear them on and off throughout the day!!

Go check it out...

Some of you may have already seen these fabulous 31 day series, BUT if you missed them...I thought I would fill you in. Sorry. I know I should have told you from the beginning. But my brain has been lost somewhere. It is like an out of body experience of some sorts only it is just my brain that seems to be lost. Maybe after Halloween the spooks will leave and my brain will return. Sure hoping so. Anyway...back to the series.

There are some AmAzInG bloggers out there who challenged each other to write a 31 day series. Yep, a post each day that corresponds to the category below.

31 Days of Grace :: Chatting at the Sky
31 Days to an Inspired Table :: My First Kitchen
31 Days to a Less Messy Nest :: Nesting Place
31 Days of Living Simply :: Remodeling This Life
31 Days of Autumn Bliss :: The Inspired Room
31 Days to More. . .With Less :: Beauty and Bedlam
31 Days to a Better Photo :: My 3 Boybarians
31 Days to Stress Free Entertaining :: Reluctant Entertainer


For anyone who has a DSLR and wants to know more how to use it. Don't miss out on the 31 days to a better photo series. It brought back some fond memories of learning all those technical aspects in my photography class in college. But seriously, she breaks it down and makes it way more entertaining.

I love the 31 days to a less messy nest too. Heaven knows, I could always use more tips on keeping up with the clutter. How exactly do you have cute storage for things with toddlers around?

Ooh. Ooh. I am always up for more entertaining especially with less stress. The holidays plus less stress. Perfect topic for this season.

Doing more with less. AHhhhh. That is the story of my life right now. And I am not just talking about being a student's wife on a tiny little budget. I am talking about just losing the stuff that doesn't really matter. I am trying to cut out the things that won't count in 10 years and stick with those that will. Harder than it sounds? Yes, but one theme seems to be central, my family.

Okay, so I won't bore you with my thoughts on each of the series. But they are all great. What amazing bloggers. Don't try and sink in a hole from the awesomeness of these ladies like I did at first. I crawled out of mine and you can too. Nah, instead let's just be inspired. Maybe one day when I grow up, I will be like them. Can't wait!!!

Anyway, if you have been following a series, which one is it? What do you like about it so far? If you have missed out on these, go check them out and see which one is for you. They are all fantastic!

Oh, Savannah...

Monday, October 18, 2010

So my crafting gumption has been bad the last few weeks, like you didn't notice. I love seeing all of your amazing projects on your blogs and in the link party. Otherwise, I would have little to no crafting in my life!!

I still have a ton of things to post from our new place but with being sick a couple weeks ago and then being out of town last week...it didn't happen. Yet. But I must say, if you haven't been to Savannah, GA or Charleston, SC you REALLY need to. Gorgeous areas with such history to observe!Have you gone on any fun trips lately? I am always up for suggestions on places to travel. I just LOVE to travel and see new things.

Hope everyone has a fabulous day!
