Artwork Display

I have really been interested in making something like this for my kids stuff and am thinking of haning it in their rooms so that we can continue to display their stuff without it overflowing off the fridge. http://windmilllettering.blogspot.com/2009/08/super-saturdaytis-season.html

Picture Matching Book

So while blog hopping I came across another blog that I love. NannyGoat. So fun - here is an idea for a book where the kids can match the faces of people they love. What fun - I know my kids would enjoy this. http://littlenannygoat.blogspot.com/2009/05/picture-matching-book.html

Framed Bows

Another creative and great way to organize your girls hairbows. I love it! Found here off Nannygoat http://littlenannygoat.blogspot.com/2009/06/thats-spot.html

My kids actually have their money stored in little water bottles. I love this idea! http://thechildrensnest.blogspot.com/2009/05/few-fun-things-to-keep-your-kids-busy.html

Dad Cake

Are you ever wondering what to do for Dad on Father's Day? Make him a Father's Day Cake or even Brownie. Brownies are our Dad's favorite. :) You could even have the kids help decorate. http://jas.familyfun.go.com/recipefinder/display?id=50245

Super Hero Towel Cape

I can't remember if I have posted this suger hero idea before, but here it is. Fun Idea! From Martha Stewart obviously...http://www.marthastewart.com/article/superhero-cape-towels-with-hosanna?lnc=ec04452be04c1210VgnVCM1000003d370a0aRCRD&backto=true&backtourl=/summer-fun?lnc=ec04452be04c1210VgnVCM1000003d370a0aRCRD&rsc=slideshow_holiday_fun&contentid=73a8fc3b3c7f0210VgnVCM1000003d370a0aRCRD#slide_41

Cute Tote

A Teacher Appreciation gift idea from Martha Stewart.

Fabric Covered Journals

Another fun one from Country Living.

Magnent Board

You see these everywhere, but I particularly love this one with the paper and white frame. I also love the idea someone had to put these in your kids room for all their artwork they bring home. That helps clear up the kitchen fridge clutter. This picture is off Country Living - http://www.countryliving.com/

So creative - I can't believe someone made this. Love it! I know my boy would love it too! http://thelongthread.com/?p=308
