Search & Win

One of the reasons that I haven't been blogging as much is that Taaryn clued me in to Google Reader, which truly rocks. Now I have about 50 blogs I look at for creative inspiration. I've decided to share a few of my favorites.....one of them is Jeanne Winter's blog at http://jeannewinters.blogspot.com/ She is an amazing artist....I love her ability to spread the Word all over her home. Right now she is having an absolutely fabulously generous giveaway on her blog...just comment on her blog to have a chance to win one of these (I SOOOOOOOO want this. If you win, will you give it to me?) and four other great gifts.

Or you could remember that there are only 302 days until Christmas and get started making a batch of these.....I'm thinking of changing them for Easter, so don't be surprised if you get one. To see her great tutorial, click here: http://jeannewinters.blogspot.com/2008/11/candle-inspirations.html
And while you are at it, you could remember that Easter is coming to, and make some of these for your Easter breakfast. If you would like to know how, click here: http://jeannewinters.blogspot.com/2008/02/easter-placecard-idea.html

Or maybe you are not as talented as my good friend Rachel Pate at http://scripturepainting.com/ (I am the proud owner of the painting on her home page) and would like to add some scripture you your furniture. Grab some Modge Podge and add a verse to a piece of furniture. See how Jeanne did it at http://jeannewinters.blogspot.com/2009/02/scripture-cabinet-redo.html
I think I'll try to find some verse about the wrath of God falling on those who don't put their socks away for the boys bedroom. Think there is one in there about that? Probably not, because He is so full of grace for little boys, and me too. Maybe I'll find a verse about grace, and be done with it.

Or you could purchase her great book by clicking on the link to the left of my blog.

And one last final idea that I might tweak for Mother's Day is this great Valentine card...I'd love to make these for all the Grandma's....and maybe a big one on my wall.

Happy blog reading, and don't forget to enter her giveaway so you can win that big fish and give it to me....my birthday is coming up, you know.
Love, Lesli
