Kids Craft/Christmas Idea

Someone pointed this idea out to me, I thought it was so cute. I may do it with the kids and let them give the ornaments to their parents this year. I know they would probably really like that.

The inscription says:

"These aren't just five snowmen
As anyone can see,
I made them with my hand
Which is a part of me.
Each year when we trim the tree
We'll look back and recall
Christmas of 2007
When my hand was just this small."

Spice Rack

I just think this spice rack is soooo cute. I found a picture of this on someone's flickr account.

She found a tv tray at the thrift store and cut the metal legs off then screwed it to the wall to create a metal surface. The magnetized spice canisters you can buy anywhere online.

I want one!

I did 5 loads of laundry tonight. Someone called later in the evening and then I was just busy with the kids too. So I start looking for the last two loads I did because I needed to fold them. I went through the house front to back, side to side 3 times looking for where I set them down. I was starting to get irritated because my house is only 1100 square feet and I just couldn't find the two baskets of clean clothes. Then I spot all the laundry baskets empty and stacked in my closet (at which point I was struck very puzzled). I went and checked and all the clothes I was looking for were folded and put away.

This has never happened to me before.

I folded them and put them away while I was on a 10 minute phone conversation.

Brainless autopilot definitely has its benefits.

Best Bumper Sticker EVER

I've never been into bumper stickers. Never put one on any of my cars, even the junkers we drove.

I am Seriously Rethinking This.
