My friend Kami has a sidebar link called "sharing time" and I thought I'd do the same. I love when others share so I think I'll jump on in the sharing pool. That is the beauty of blogging right? Oh and to keep my family informed on how I am surviving life out here on my own and how big my little babies are getting. My sister still calls them "her babies"--I love it.
Anyway, enough tangents. I will get to my sharing time.
First up--the "Lyndee Skirt"
Sara first taught Lyndee who made a ton of these, thus the "Lyndee" skirt, who then taught Melanie who then taught Nedra and me how to make these fabulous, super easy, but don't look too closely, perfect for a beginner seamstress, I wouldn't even call myself a seamstress, skirts.
my first attempt
my second attempt-for Jane. I made the under ruffle a little longer
my next attempt will be out of this fabric. so fun for winter time matching skirts for the girls.
Maybe I will get daring enough to do a tutorial if you are interested.
Also check out this post from Melanie. Such a fun idea. I might have to try it (with Melanie's help:)
Next up -Highlights Kids
Tell me you didn't love doing the hidden pictures from the Highlights magazines when you were a kid. I hated going into the doctor's office to find that some ratty kid had already circled all the answers. You know what I am talking about right? Well now they have them online. And I am hooked. My kids kinda like them too:)
Along those lines-The Friend Online
On Sunday we have tried (I say we but Brett complains more than the kids) to not watch TV. We've done pretty well but Sundays can get very long. So Nedra told me about the Friend Magazine online. They have all sorts of puzzles, hidden pictures, and games that your kids can play all while listening to primary music. It is fabulous.
That is all for now. I will post on the side super ideas from other blogs that I happen upon.
