A Collection of Links

It is no secret that I spend a lot of time on the computer.  I love reading blogs and searching for things of interest on the web.  So… here are a few things that I’ve “collected” from the web recently that I either made or thought was cool enough to share:

1.  This awesome tutorial showed me how to make a Crochet Heart Garland.

Close up:

2.  Free Calendar Printables – geared for Preschool, but we used them for our school calendar.  If you hunt around, you’ll also find holiday-themed ones.  I think I’ll do hearts for February!

3. Broccoli Cheese Potato Soup – I made this recipe and ended up calling it “French Fry Soup” so Clara would think it tasted like French Fries and eat it.  Hey – whatever works to get vegetables into that one!  It wasn’t pretty, but it was yummy!

Other recipes we’ve tried recently were:

4.  Basic Black Beans ~ Oh. So. Yummy.  Will never go back to my “old” way of making these.

5.  Cookie Dough Truffles ~ we made these as a special treat for Kevin’s birthday.  Little bites of heaven.

6.  Crock Pot Potato Soup ~ Noticing a pattern?  Love cool-weather easy recipes!  Have made this recipe 3x now & it gets gobbled up every time!

Things I haven’t tried/done/made, but that I think are cool:

Catch your own Snowflakes ~ Don’t think I’ll be doing this any time soon for obvious reasons.

Paper City ~ This is really cool.  I could see us printing these out and coloring them.

Free ABC Printable ~ So cute!  You can download the full-sized file for this and print it as an 11×14. I would totally do this if  my kids were still young!

50 Art Journal Ideas ~ Inspiring.

The Great Wall of China Craft ~ Makes me want to study China so we can make one of these!

L.O.V.E. Pots ~ Cute and cheap!  Thinking of having the girls make these to display with my crocheted heart garland!

Hope you enjoy browsing through these as much as I did!  Happy Collecting!
