Twilight Fans out there??

March 31, 2010

I see another few days of isolation in my room ignoring my family…

Great news for any Twilight fans out there, Stephanie Meyer just announced a new book in the series. No it is not Midnight Sun (I know I was kinda mad when I read that too) but instead it is The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner.  This new book is going to be released on June 5th but you can pre-order it from Borders at 33% off, just pay $9.44 (get it shipped to the store as well to get free shipping). The nice part is that for the first 1.5 million books that are purchased they will donate to the American Red Cross. Thanks Courtney! 


Also Stephanie Meyer says that she will post it online for FREE from June 7th at noon till July 5th at
this site. I will remind you when it gets closer so you can read it for Free, I know I will be!

Giveaway Winner’s for the Kroger Cards!

March 30, 2010
I LOVED reading all your comments. I can’t believe how many of you live in Houston, we should all take the kiddo’s to the zoo sometime!
The winners of the Kroger gift cards, as chosen by chubby little hands are…
Sunshine of Autum Quilts
we just got off our Spring Break, we did not go anywhere, but stayed home and worked in the house. My two boys changed bedrooms- I redid both and worked on some furniture remodeling for my oldests room, which came out wonderful. My husband and I continued to work on a spare room that will be our storage pantry for stockpiling. It is getting closer but probably have a couple more weekends before it is all done.- Great giveaway

Michele
Well, my kids are 3, 1 and 3 months…so I don’t really get a spring break yet:-( But I hope to see a few of my teacher friends who will have the week off.
PS…if I win the gift card I’ll be giving it to a friend who’s husband is in school full time and she’s a stay at home mom. She could use the extra $25 for groceries.

Congratulations Ladies! Shoot me an email with your snail mail address so I can get these to you!

Easy Easter Craft-Bunny (repost)

March 30, 2010

I can’t remember where I first saw these but it was years ago. At least 15 because I have been making them that long. I love them because they are cheap and the kids can make them. You non-crafty types (me included) YOU can make these in under 23 seconds, thats the record!

Take a cheap hand towel, I like white. The cheaper and thinner the better. They have them in packs at Wal-Mart for like 10 for $6
Fold one corner up like you are making a bandana.
Keep folding…
When it is all rolled up, fold it in half.
Next, now this is the hardest part, take the open ends (the ears) and fold it back almost half way. This is making the bunny face and ears.
Take a rubber band and secure the little face of the bunny. I had to use a hair tie because I used a heavier wash cloth, the thinner clothes can be done with a rubber band. Twist it around a few times so it is tight. Now pull the ears up a bit, and your done!
Tie a ribbon around the rubber band so you can’t see it.
If I had all the supplies I usually give him some googly eyes, a little pompom nose and a little pompom tail. But I didn’t want to pull out the glue gun. I think he is cute as it!

I stick a plastic egg in the little hole behind his ears, it is a perfect spot to hold something. I am using these as name sign for Easter dinner. I am putting everyones names on the eggs and putting a bunny by every plate. 
They are cute and less than $1 each to make. Can you beat the 23 second record?? 

What traditions do you have for Easter?
