My Latest Addiction

Well, I've been a little scarce around blogland these past few days for several reasons.

First, we drove up to Arkansas on Thursday so that Vince could fly together with my dad on their trip to Peru (YES, his passport came in the nick of time on Wednesday...whew!!). That way the kiddos and I can hang out and have fun with my mom and sister for a few days and when Vince gets back we can swing on up to Tulsa to meet our new nephew who will be born on this coming Tuesday. Yea!!

Thank you to all who have been praying for my SIL. She is hanging in there, so ready for Tuesday to come!

Secondly, I've simply been busy getting Vince off on his trip, taking care of the kiddos and enjoying time with my mom and sister.

Thirdly, I've developed a new addiction: Facebook. I know, I kept saying that I wasn't going there because I already spend so much time here, but I kept peeking at my hubby's page and seeing tons of old friends that I wanted to reconnect with and I just couldn't help myself! What can I say?!

Be honest: how many of you are into Facebook, too? Email me and we can be friends!!:)


Almost everyone I know is doing Facebook. They all seem to love it. I hope it is lots of fun. This is where I have to draw a line in the sand. I cannot add another thing to my life unless I get rid of something. I am new to blogging so it is my addiction. I cannot walk through a room without thinking of snapping photos.

No Facebook for me...sounds fun, but blogging is enough time already! Hope you enjoy it!...and the little trip seeing family!

I was hoping that your absence was just you being busy getting your family to Arkansas and Vince off on his trip. Glad that your SIL is still hanging in there and I hope that her cough is getting better.

No Facebook for me. Blogging was really my first attempt at anything on the internet, and it's all I can handle and keeps me plenty busy. Have fun with it though. Hope we'll still see you plenty around here!

I can't even keep up with blogging but funny enough last night someone added me as a friend and I didn't know I had even set it up but there I was on facebook. I don't like my chances of staying involved but it does look good.

I think you may already know this, but I do have a facebook. Blogging is definitely my addiction though....not necessarily because I blog all the time, but I love to read them every day! I check my facebook a few times a week though and have been able to talk to some friends that I haven't seen in years. Have a good week!

I am on FB!!! Honestly, it's part of the reason I'm so scarce in the blogosphere lately, too. It's so easy to just pop on FB and catch up with so many people and make one or two comments without having to come up with a whole post, pics, etc. I'll try to look you up!

I'm on there too! Now you can be addicted like all the rest of us. Seriously, it is hard to keep up with blogging and FB and regular email and LIFE, LOL! But I'm working on it. I'd love to be friends!

Making Notebooks

Recently I tried out a new craft idea~and it was SO much fun!! And extremely frugal, too. That's always a bonus, right? So here we go: 1. Take your basic composition notebook (purchased at the back-to-school sales for .99 each). 2. Go to your craft supplies and get your Mod Podge ready, along with a good paintbrush. 3. Look through all those scrapbook papers you've been randomly collecting and choose some. 3. After choosing your paper for the cover of your book and trimming it to fit, start *painting* the cover with the glue. Next, give the back of your paper a good coat of glue, too. (I left the binding uncovered so that I could use a contrasting paper there later on). 4. Glue it on! Remember to smooth out any air bubbles under the paper. 5. Flip the cover open and make a few cuts on the corners so that they will fold over nice and neat, then add a little more glue to the edges of the inside cover and a little more to the paper edges. 6. Fold them over a

The Making of an Egyptian Death Mask

We are learning all about the ancient world this year with Story of the World I and loving it! We've been learning a lot about Egypt, of course, which is completely fascinating. Most recently we have studied the New Kingdom of Egypt, which includes the story of King Tut. So we decided making an Egyptian death mask in the style of King Tut's would be a fun project. First since it was too cold at the time to paper mache in the garage (it probably would have frozen instead of dried-ha) and it was too messy to do it in the house, we decided to pick up a couple of cheap craft masks at Hobby Lobby. Next we cut out cardboard shapes to complete the shape of the death mask, attaching them with hot glue. Vince even put a little detail on the *beard* with the hot glue per The Princess' request. Then the kiddos started to paint them with this metallic gold tempera paint. It worked okay for the cardboard, but would not coat the plastic of the mask. We thought maybe a second c

Door Hanger Chore Charts

My kids have had a chore chart for a while.  It's one of those magnetic boards and they share it.  However, it's not by their rooms and often they (and I) forget to update it.  Plus it's a little bulky.   When I saw the concept of a door hanger chore chart on Pinterest, I loved it!  It was compact, right there were the kiddos could see it coming out and going into their rooms, and it costs almost nothing to make.   I headed over to one of my favorite stores: Hobby Lobby, of course.  They  have these little wooden door hangers for .79.  I also grabbed a couple of packets of decorative buttons for $1.99 each.  I already had the clothes pins and the paint so those cost me nothing.   I began by painting the door hangers (I used tempera paints because that's what I had).  Then I grabbed a fine point Sharpie and the clothes pins and started writing chores on them, making sure to write them correctly so they will clip on the right direction.   The left
