shout out sunday- summer fun edition

(Now let me tell you a story about how shout outs sunday started….(settle in)

I was getting lots of “awards” (which I blushed each time) and you are supposed to pass it on to like 10 bloggers each.

and most people just write the list and leave it at that.

and let’s be completely honest….no one really clicks over. (unless there was a funny name in there like tampons and chocolate (yes..it’s a real blog) .

and you know my  motto–a post is not a post without a picture.

and ON TOP of that. I was right clicking and saving pictures left and right. (I love blogland–so many crazy creative people (and just plain crazy too)

what? did you totally think I was talking about myself? RUDE. I’m not crazy.

just not entirely sane.

i’m tired. I painted all day (fumes)

oh. anywho–I was saving these pictures and i finally wised up and put it all together.

and gave birth to shout out sundays (now minus the awards–weird. I don’t really get awards anymore..ha. just decided i’m making up a new award…watch for that. (did I mention fumes)) (can you put a parenthesis in parenthesis…cause I just did.)

MORAL OF THIS STORY/MINDLESS BABBLE
I love that I have all these great links on my blog. I love that I can think…I featured that one idea of how to make a lemon wreath  and now I have the direct link right here. I would do it even if you HATED it. HATED.

AND the one I love the most is my summer fun shout outs. I have been sitting here with three kids who are complaining ‘I’m bored” (ugh..hate those words) and I just click on my summer shout outs and have all these links to great crafts..of all skill levels and I just skim through and find something perfect. it’s just so darn convenient! so I thought we should do a new round of Fun Kid’s CRAFTS and CRAP to get us through 2011…alive.

come together kids

like hot rocks with a twist!
family fun

the fun without the mess. my kind of fun.

freeze some crap.
give them some “weapons” that are cheap plastic (so it takes FOREVER)
