Closed on Sundays...

Hobby Lobby just opened up in our town and I am so pleased with their Christian principals.   I never realized that this store was Christian owned until I read this sign on their door.  My husband informed me that they also donate to many christian organizations.  Here is a list of some neat organizations Hobby Lobby donates too:

Also, David Green, the Owner and founder of Hobby Lobby is #79 on Forbes list.

Some other neat facts: 

Green started Hobby Lobby with a loan of $600 in 1970.  

Green opened up the first Hobby Lobby in 1972. 

One of the really neat things they donated was 1.4 BILLION copies of Good News to homes in over 100 countries.  

David Green was a pastors son and they did not have much money growing up. 

Hobby Lobby also is trying to protect us from the health care mandates... Obama-care.  Hobby Lobby actually has a lawsuit out on several Health care issues.  

After finding all of this out it makes me want to shop at Hobby Lobby over Joann's and Micheal's.  :) I mean no offense to those stores especially since we have all 3.

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!
