Painting Pumpkins!

So we attempted to paint pumpkins tonight. We got Shelby Lynn stripped down to her diaper and got the paint out. We were going to paint her hands and then press them on the pumpkin. But alas, all my fussiness over keeping her neat whenever she ate or played has had a bad effect...she hated the paint on her hands and boohood..she kinda looked like the baby pumpkin! I didn't post any pics of her because she is in her diaper, but on Halloween we are going to carve one and hopefully she will pull the guts out, and I can get pics then!

SITS exciting new giveaway

Head on over the the SITS site to check out their fantastic November giveaway. It is a Bissel Healty Home Vacuum. I don't know about you, but I find it so hard to find a good vacuum. We have tried several, and they all have had annoying little issues. But the Bissel looks great...I really like the antimicrobacterial protection. You can find out more HERE

Coffee Time

So I have been doing some thinking and have decided that it is especially important now more than ever to support small businesses; especially if one day I want to open my own! This Christmas I am going to try and purchase as much from small businesses as possible.
The first one I would like to recommend is:
It is a new online coffee shop and Meaghan, the owner, is giving away 1 pound of coffee. She is a stage 3b cervical cancer survivor and is now cancer free!
She also recommends the following:

If you are interested in a chance to get money for the cancer charity of your choice for an entire year go to:

So please go by and check her new store out!!

Oh you just have to go by this site. It is amazing the talent this lady has!
HERE is her fabulous work! Oh and you can enter to win this fantastic gown. It is for an older child otherwise I would have entered to win. Thought about it anyway, but since Shelby Lynn is only 16months I figured I would not enter so someone who has an age approriate child would have a better chance.

New Favorite Site

Okay I love this site: quickly becoming an addict. You have to check out!
Sooo I have really been slacking and have not do a single craft project this week. I am for sure having withdrawals!
Finished a new book: The Gods Must be Crazy. Very interesting. The jury is still out on this one.
Hopefully will update this weekend with projects.
