Edit: Hey, I've been meaning to tell you about some fabulous new products that Copic released at CHA. There is new masking film, blending cards, and double sided tape....you can check out Marianne's colorful blog here to read about CHA happenings and all the new products. When I get back from vacation, I'll be showing the new products here on the blogaroonie. :)
Hello friends. Thanks again for all the well wishes. I am feeling pretty good and slept great last night...felt so good to be able to roll onto my side for the first time since my surgery. Did I tell you that one of my gallstones was the size of a golf ball...I got to see it. Gross.
We're heading out for vacation today to beautiful Colorado. The fresh mountain air will do my family wonders! So glad my parents are right next door to hold the fort down while we're gone. Just an update on my Etsy shop while I'm away. I will be gone from August 10th to August 15th. The shop will remain open and all orders received during that time will be shipped on August 16th. I have lots of samples ready for this month's Papertrey release but I have to keep them under cover. You will flip for the Friendship Jar Fall Fillers set!
In the meantime, here's a little something we've been doing lately. I got the idea from Becky Higgins' blog. Each child gets their own snack jar. I found these fun jars at Walmart. We've added decorated name tags to the jars since these photos.The concept is that a week's worth of snacks go into the jars. You divide the goodies up equally between the kids' jars.
Add in some healthier snacks like breakfast bars, applesauce cups, etc.
Divide up treats like cookies and packaged snacks into little baggies. No one fights over who ate all the Oreos anymore. Each red gets the same amount.
And you don't dare get into the other kid's jar. Or else.
It's worked great for us this summer and lots of friends that visited this summer went home and told their moms all about it. I think it will be nice for when school starts too....the girls will know right where to grab a snack on their way out the door or for after school. Just thought I would share...you gotta love when a great idea comes along. See ya soon!
