Thankful Thursday's

I am a little slow today at getting this out.  There are so many things to be praising GOD for this week!

1. Forgiveness- I know I mess up but man I am so grateful for a God who forgives and forgets.  I am trying to teach my daughter about forgiving as she has a hard time of remembering to forget as she forgives, but God throws our sin away and forgets all about it!  AMEN

2. Farmer's markets- I love getting healthy food and I love supporting the locals, and it is just so fun and nice outside to shop and enjoy!

3. My meeting for Children's church went very well last weekend.  :)

4. Football season is starting- I am a big fan!  PS... I think God cheers for the Packers too!  LOL  ;)

5. I was actually very relieved today that I was not at school teaching but spending it with my love bugs!  :) I know life would be so different if I would have taken a full time teaching job and right now is not the Lord's timing and HE knows BEST-THAT IS FOR SURE!  How happy I was today being with my 2 love bugs at the Farmer's market, getting ice cream, and the splash pad!  :)  FUN MOMMY and KIDS day!  :)

I loved number one, because my daughter has a hard time with that as well. She has an incredible memory as well. Not a good combination.

Love your blog.
I'm happy to see football season upon us. But I do wish it would cool off some!

My Memory Suite Review and GIVEAWAY!

MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway!  (#1 rated scrapbook software)  The above is one of the scrap pages I have created.  Super easy and super fast.  I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book.  I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments!  The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes!  :)  SO EASY!   Here is a great video explaining more about the product.  There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create.  THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online.  The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create.  :) One feature t

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
