Fun Things

I've been nudged (Hi Dawn!) to get crackin' on my blog. As I told her, I always have good intentions to post, but then life gets in the way!

I do have oodles of fun things to post, but they are on my home computer. So, in lieu of content, I give you ... *drumroll* ... FUN THINGS!

= = =

Fun Thing #3 - Happy Birthday A Muse!

Fun Thing #6 - Google Reader!
Okay, if you haven't done this yet - DO IT. GOOGLE READER! I am so serious. It took awhile to get all of my favorite blogs entered, but it was so worth it. I was literally wasting days of my life by visiting each individual blog in my favorites. Now, I click on my Google Reader link, and TA DA! All of the blogs I read, listed all on one site, and it even shows me the updated ones! *hugs Google Reader*

We have Lily's end-of-the-year school picnic tonight, but I'll try to post some fun projects I have been working on lately when I get home. And ... possibly a little giveaway or two, for your patience? :)

Martha Martha Martha!

If you haven't heard about the new Martha Stewart Crafts line at Michael's, you might be living under a very large rock.


I made a pit stop at one of the local Michael's after work yesterday, and picked up a few things.
