Today, I am guest posting at BRASSY APPLE. It is an awesome blog for creative ideas! Megan has been hosting a month of fun ideas to Save Our Summer (S.O.S.)I will be doing quite a few ideas with my kids that I saw on her blog this month!
Head over to Brassy Apple to see one idea I have done with my kids to keep them busy, helps them develop coordination, strength and balance, and is something they have fun doing all summer long!
At the end of every month, I give a shout out to my sponsors who keep me going! Thanks to all these wonderful businesses! There is something for every one with my sponsors. Visit their websites today to see what you can find.
Some of these sponsors will be leaving me this month. I am offering a summer special for advertising.
The last four months, Someday Crafts has averaged over 180,000 page views a month. Sponsors ads are rotated daily.
Here is my special:
Your button on my sidebar for 3 MONTHS,
Sponsor of a Whatever Goes Wednesday Party
Your button included in the end of month "Thanks to my Sponsors" post.
All this for only
I am also accepting space forgiveaways and business highlights posts.
What do you think that flag is made of? Try... paint sticks! Paint a few paint sticks and glue a star on and you have an adorable flag for the patriotic holidays! This great idea was created by Dreaming In Color.
You've gotta love one step DIY projects that cost a dollar or two. And Studs and Pearlshas a easy, cute one-stepper for you. She turned a pretty scarf into a vest with just two simple cuts! The good news it can still be used as a scarf after you make the cuts.
Don't you love the way that And Then There Was Home displays her childrens' books on these DIY ledges? The kids can see all the titles and pictures and can choose what they want instead of scattering the books all over the floor! Great idea that doesn't cost that much money to implement! What a dreamy reading area!
Positively Splendidhas hosted a month of Summer Survivalideas where other blogger contribute. Some truly great ideas and inspiration are all in one post today since it is the last day! I love recaps of great series.
One of the ideas I will definitely be doing this summer with my kids is making a painted rock garden contributed by Living With Punks! My kids will eat this idea up. I'm not so sure the rocks will look as cute as these, but they will be colorful!
I've seen a lot of onesies that have ties sewn or ironed on, but rarely have I seen a onesie with a bowtie! These bowtie onesies from Shwin and Shwin are super stylish for infants to toddlers! They can't pull them off! I'm making some of these for my little guy! I'll probably give some away for shower gifts too!
