Roll'n, Roll'n, Roll'n

I found some really nifty ideas
in a couple of magazines that I
THOUGHT I would share with
you.
************************************
~~~~Save the hotel "freebie"
shower caps. Use them to
cover shoes before packing.
Now your shoes won't get
anything dirty. If you don't
use them for this--save them
to cover shoes at another time.
************************************
~~~~A marrriage rule to NEVER
break. "Steal time." For a kiss,
a whisper, a date, time together
on the couch etc.
************************************
~~~~Crafty ideas::
**Change a flat front frame
from BORING to bold with
"Grasscloth wallpaper."
Measure frame and photo
opening. glue paper on,
let dry and your good to go.
Trim any excess.
**Find inexpensive glass or
acrylic coasters and cover the
bottom with pictures you have
found or print out your own
photos--cut to fit the bottom of
each coaster and glue on with
clear drying glue stick.
Kids pics, pets, gardens,
vacations etc. would work.
These would be great for as a
little gift too.
************************************
**It will be "Back to School"
time way too soon but help
is on it's way for those of you

Fun activities to do with the kids
this summer:
Play Water Limbo--
Each player goes under the nozzle
stream. Last dry player WINS
Blow Bubbles--
My suggestion--try Scented Bubbles
you can find them at the Dollar Tree.
Put on a Play--
Create costumes, develope a story
and the play can begin. Get fancy
and "sell tickets." Maybe some
popcorn???
Paint Outdoors--
On an old sheet hjug on a clothes
line or hang butcher paper on a
fence for the kids to paint on.

  7. You are going to have a great time!

    Love the shower cap tip. I would never have thought of that one! And I've tried that dip recipe. It is really delicious! I've added a cup or so of FF cool whip and made it into a pudding/mousse thing with some fresh raspberries and that is delicious, too!

    Have a fabulous weekend!
