another fun web site

In my week of lounging recovering on the couch I had the opportunity to do A LOT of reading on the internet. And I was pleased to find a ton of blogs with great ideas for sewing, crafting, giveaways and things to do with your kids. One such blog is Make and Takes. Marie is a mom with a new baby and 2 other kids. She has great ideas for kids crafts, snacks and other recipes. I made these grape-sicles yesterday - and Alison thinks eating anything of a stick is cool - so these were a hit!

A great recipe of hers is Rosemary Peasant Bread. I substituted dried oregano since I don't have any rosemary. It is so easy - there's no kneading involved just some rising time. It really does remind me of Macaroni Grill's bread and I can start it on Sunday when I get home from church and still get a nap!!

We made some of these sponge toys and they were so easy it's crazy! And Alison loves playing with them in the bath.

Here are a few more of her posts that I plan on trying out:

Semi-Homemade Donuts

Strawberry Fruit Leather

Muffin Tin Mealtime

Felt Sugar Cookies

Stuffed Fabric eggs

I love how quick and simple all of these ideas are. Thanks, Marie!
