Here’s a little teaser…
Pretty easy project that keeps those wonderful picture books in line!
These are so quick and easy that they can’t really be considered “projects.” But I thought they were both great ideas!
1. Use a muffin cup to catch popsicle drips.
(See Adam’s thumb? He was trying to cover the lens. He was tired of the picture taking.)
2. Make SPONGEBALLS. These would be really fun outside, but it’s too darn hot out there. Plus, my kids needed a bath.
I just cut up some cheap sponges and tied the pieces together. They make great loofahs.
Isn’t that baby adorable? Four months old already!
Now, would someone PLEASE pin “Katie, go clean your house” so that maybe I would do it? Notice I said “maybe.” I don’t do things that require too much effort.
I made this:
I cut the letters out of barnwood from my Great Grandpa’s barn, using a jigsaw. Then, I took thousands (literally) of pictures of my boys, trying to get good ones. I don’t think the ones I got are fabulous, but they’ll do. Daddy was happy, and that’s all that matters!
I also helped my friends, Kim, Anna and Katie, make this for their husbands, too! They turned out adorably! Here is Anna’s:
She said her husband loves black and white pictures, and doing the spot color was a great way to zero in on the letters, instead of the colorful toys in the sand box. The spot color is VERY easy in Memory Manager.
Keep this one in mind for next Father’s Day!

Have you heard about the Pinterest Challenge? I am so excited!!!
Basically, find something that inspires you on Pinterest, copy it and link it up next Tuesday!
In honor of this challenge, I will be posting a Pinterest Project EVERYDAY until next Tuesday! I’ve already completed a few of them, and I have a couple more in the works.
Pinterest Project #1:
I pinned this:
And then built this (and look! Someone pinned it, too!)
This week’s Turkey Tuesday comes from A Latte with Ott, A. Amy is super knowledgeable about turkeys…she has a degree in Poultry Science! But that’s not all, she can cook them, too.
Over on Amy’s blog, you can check out her Iron Chef Challenges, and I’m really looking forward to Canning Week, which she hosts with Jen, from Mess Hall to Bistro. I might, maybe, if my garden ever produces something (other than weeds) try to join them in canning something this year!
(Jen also guest posted a turkey recipe for me. These girls know what they’re doing! That’s why I have THEM doing the recipe posts instead of me.)
Without further ado, here’s Amy:
We spend a lot of time outside in the summer months and therefore eat outside a lot too. It's not uncommon for us to fix our entire evening meal on the grill. We start with the meat and a vegetable and then end up with fruit. It taste great and allows us to enjoy the outdoors even more. This past weekend I was at the grocery store picking up some supplies and had this great idea to try grilling Turkey Breast. While we grill a lot of different varieties of meat around here; we had never grilled Turkey. I picked out a 1 pound package of sliced Turkey Breast that were about a half inch thick. I then thought of flavors that paired well with turkey and of course thanksgiving side dishes such as stuffing and cranberries came to mind. By the time I got home from the store my mind was already swirling with the ingredients I wanted to use to make a marinade for this Turkey.
