In honor of Library Lovers Month visit your library – or at least their website. On many sites you can find out about upcoming events, search for books, hold a book, check your account and avoid fines by renewing your books. Many libraries offer wonderful activities for children and adults you may not be aware of. For example: story and craft time, special programs like magicians or read to a dog, adult book clubs, club meetings, and special events like concerts and art shows. Many libraries also offer in addition to books, magazines, DVD’s, music CD’s, audiobooks and computer access. Find out how you can help your library by donating money, books or time. Our library raises money by selling personalized bricks which get placed along the front walkway. My kids are thrilled every time they see their brick and like to look for other people we know. So open your mind and read a book- from the library!

Photo Mosaic

3 Feb 2009 In: Crafts, Mom Tech


WOW! What an amazing photo. It’s made by from hundreds of other photos of the same baby. It’s an inexpensive yet time consuming project. It works best if you have thousands of photos to choose from as I do, but if you don’t it can reuse images or find images from the web. It makes a really unique valentine gift. Try making a mosaic of your parents out of old photos of the family. It takes some trial and error – some photos look better in mosaic form. Good luck. For full instructions on how to make this on your MAC go here

Emergency diaper stash

28 Jan 2009 In: home, Tips

How many times have you run out (or sent your husband out) to the store late at night to pick up diapers? It’s something a person with kids can’t do without! There is no substitute – if you’re out you’re in trouble. So here’s our simple tip: keep several diapers in a secret spot for emergency use. If you tend to go through the emergency stash keep a couple in another spot also. Don’t forget to update when your child moves up to the next size. This tip also works for any other items you tend to run out of and can’t live without.

WOOT! a deal!

19 Jan 2009 In: Uncategorized

The internet is a marvelous place – especially for shopping. Today we bring you a novel site that offers amazing daily deals. WOOT! They only offer one item per day. You read correctly – ONE item per day – so you have to check back each day to see what they have, but it is usually at a great price. Today they are offering a 47″ HDTV. I have seen many electronic items like cel phones, DVD players and even a computer. It isn’t your typical store, but it’s interesting to see what they have and there is usually an amusing story/description to go along with it. They also offer a tee shirt deal, wine deal and one other random item each day. For more details check out their FAQ page.

Christmas card photo keepsake

17 Jan 2009 In: Holiday, home, Tips


As my friends and family are having children my Christmas card collection of photos grows every year. Instead of throwing them away I like to save them. The kids and I enjoy looking at them year after year- seeing everyone grow and change. I found an easy way to organize them is with inexpensive panoramic and 5×7 photo albums. I use the Pioneer flexible cover albums which come in different sizes and are very inexpensive. You can usually find them at your drug or card store or of course online. They are about $2 – $4. I fill up the panoramic with the 4×8 cards and regular 4×6 photos. I had to get a 5×7 album this year to accommodate the new style cards. Don’t forget to add a name and date if it isn’t printed on the card using a photo safe marker. I guarantee you will enjoy looking back at them in years to come. By the way don’t forget to include your own holiday card!
