Toddler Crafts

Jon has been out of town for over a week and Nate and I are about to drive each other crazy. I searched the internet for craft inspirations, anything to keep Nate busy. He was excited to do "craps" and I was happy he was staying out of the refrigerator.

I found a website called All Kids that has a lot of crafts, activities, worksheets and MORE for keeping your kids busy.  I looked through the Fall Crafts list for some ideas.

Testing Signature

Testing Testing 1..2..3..

I think it worked! Introducing my new signature image. Woot!

New Header

I've been making lots of lists about what I want to do with this blog and where I'm going with it. One of the first things I wanted to do was create a new header. I followed Clover Lane: A Tutorial On How To Make A Blog Banner Using Picasa. She has nice pictures and easy to follow instructions. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out! And it won't be hard to change it whenever the mood strikes me.

The picture of Nate on the left was taken by my sweet friend and neighbor over at SummerW Portrait Designs. She does an awesome job. So if you're around OKC or Tulsa and need pictures, contact Summer!

The other pictures were taken by me. With my little point and shoot. Because I'm too cheap for a nice camera.

I love the Circus font. I used it when I made Nate's paper birthday banner. I wonder if I have a picture of that somewhere...

I found the quote in my Quotes board on Pinterest. I might change the quote around every time I mess with the banner.

My next adventure will be to create a signature image at the end of my posts. And an About Me page.

Let's do this!
