Here is a fun little website:Kiosk. They have tons of neat things from interesting countries. For instance:

Paper Shoes
Paper & Paint
8" x 3"
Hong Kong

Kung Fu slippers for the afterworld, paper shoes burned at a Chinese funeral to be used on the other side. My fantasy was not to burn them but to match them with our paper hat and have some sort of strange installation with dancing shoes and a paper hat that constantly tips to say HELLO. I guess the slippers would be doing a tap or a shuffle, a bit odd for Kung Fu slippers but in the fantasy anything is possible. One more thing, I do think these are great with the hat for your new art collection, Oldenburg rocks after all.

This is a new blog I found that centers around the family.
Great ideas and recipes!

My friends all had a toy that I coveted. I'm sure I could have asked one had I asked, but I didn't. I was thinking of that toy:

I also found out they have a National Skip-It Team. I'm interested. I wonder what the age cut-off is. Maybe you can join with me.
With it being the first-day of school for me- I have to say a thanks to:

This is the cutest fabric depicting the "steps" a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints would take throughout their life. I LOVE IT and all the other fabric and notions!

I am thankful that I can throw a birthday party for my children.
That I have a place to hang streamers and balloons.
That they may have happy birthday wishes.
Some don't have's where to help.

I stumbled upon this website Darlybird. I love it. Here is a necklace
I would buy if I wore jewelry. It would pay homage to my rancher roots
and a star for the five people in my family. It's RAD.

Sometimes I hear about things that I probably should know, for instance: I am an economics major and I know about Reganomics. I don't remember much else about his presidency. In my defense, I was 0-9 years of age during this decade. I found a way to find out the things that "come-up" occasionally. They know everything about the 1980s.

I have a new guilty pleasure...check it out. People mail in postcards into this guy

and he posts it on his blogspot. It's very- All American Rejects "Your my Dirty Little Secret"-esque

Death place

He was only 10 years older than me when he was killed. It amazes me the amount he was able to accomplish in so little time. Want to know more about Joseph Smith Jr.?>

These are for your little princesses.

I am so thankful for beautiful, healthy babies. I can only imagine how hard it would be to have children that weren't. I watched a news channel last night talking about false hope given by an evangelist. The deformity and the desperation from the sick and their loved ones was overwhelming. I cried to see their hopeful faces and wanted them to be healed. I am so blessed.
Read about someone else concerned with children's health, Alfred I. duPont.

It's a goal of mine to give blood. I hate needles and I hate blood (except when it stays in it's veins and heart like its supposed to). However, my husband gives blood quite regularly and his stowic service has impressed me. Takes All Types is a website where you register your blood type with ways to contact you and they will let you know when they need your blood type in your area. I bet it's pretty hard to say "no"when you know you are needed.

This one was easy. Who remembers Safety Kids? The sugary-sweet

songs that taught us to scream if someone tried to take us from our parents, how to memorize our telephone numbers, and who to look for if

we got lost. I DO! (In fact, if you are interested I became a rep for the discount and am willing to share!)

Momma's Monday
Well, today is my day and the thing I'm digging on for right now is indexing for Family Search.
It helps me feel a tad bit productive in a very repetitive line of work.
Check it out. The download is free and you are helping people
all over the world find family lines and loved ones.

This is my great-grandmother. She is now 95 years old. She came to visit us this holiday season and she never fails to bring copious amounts of stories from her lifetime. What I learned this trip: she had a heart-attack at 28 years-old, she would make 17 pies at a time to share with neighbors, she would compete with the other ladies in her neighborhood to see who had the cleanest house/could cook the best/had the best looking legs. (Things don't really change do they?) We took her to the temple- it has been more years than anyone could remember. It was a humbling experience and I decided I don't want to get old.


Something I find truly fun and entertaining is the drive-in. We often

set up camp at the Motor-Vu.

Before I go, I often check with this website. I type in the title and they

break down the rating- number of each swear-word and all!

Be a good parent HERE.

I am so grateful for the ingenuity of the folks over at Shabby Princess because without them I would not have my top banner. If you didn't know, they have step-by-step instructions on how to design a layout using digital scrapbooking tools in Photoshop Element (which I have).

I really like LeeLou Blogs. All of her layout designs are free and beautiful!
She has recently made available layouts for the FOURTH of JULY.
She also has those cute LDS icons that lead to the church site. Cute!
FYI: if you are looking for LDS blinkies... Look Here.

Newly Committed!

In order to keep me going on my Wonders and Wandering my daily posts will be as follows: Momma's Monday, Things from the Past Tuesdays, What's New Wednesdays, Thankful Thursdays, Fun Fridays and Someone Special Saturdays.

DIY Nursing Covers
One of my favorite bloggers, who goes by Mavis, has detailed step-by-step instructions about how to make a nursing cover.
as an alternative I really like this idea.

Here is an excellent cause with which I agree and support. Commercial Free Childhood. We market waaaay too much to our children and the things that are typically marketed are things that should not be on their "radar" in the first place.

My great-grandmother recently had her 95th birthday. I was in charge of the slide show. I spent all week gathering photos, scanning them and adding them into Windows Movie Maker- only to be given a tip by one of my mom's collueges that photostory was the better way to do things. It lets you edit your pictures, arrange them and does te transitions for you. And it's free!

Here is a website from Proctor & Gamble that asks for surveys and opinions on a variety of topics. The upside: they send you free product, freebie coupons and/or really cheap coupons for their new lines. By-the-way: I LOVE their new FUZE drinks and got quite a few for free!
