New Inspiration Blogs, a forgotten Old Project, and Awesome Products

I forgot to post this old project I did as a valentines gift circa somewhere around 2004.

I purchased a tile board (I'm just calling it that, I have no idea what the real name is) and painted it black, then printed photos to be the perfect size (this was during the era that digital cameras had become big but easy online ordering and ordering precise sizes was not yet widespread, so I printed them myself on regular computer paper to get the right sizes) Then I lightly glued them to the "tiles" and poured Easy Epoxy on, and let it sit over night. What is that in the middle you might ask? A beautiful Led Zepplin quote (I still like Zepplin, but was especially into them at the time).

If the sun refused to shine, I would still be loving you.
If the mountains crashed into the sea, there would still be you and me.

By the way, can you tell I just learned photos can be resized and arranged at different parts of the page?

New Blogs I Love
I've added these to my blogs on the right, but these blogs are new ones I've found and am now in awe of
Tip Junkie- By far the largest blog I've found as of yet. Even has a free Ipad app, which I'm downloading "as I type" See if it makes the great on my upcoming post "Best IPAD/IPHONE apps."
Bakerella- Such pretty food!
Skip to My Lou- hundreds of  free downloads and ideas
Frugal Life Project- I hate the word frugal. It sounds so ugly, tastless, and just down right  "nails on the chalkboard-ish" but this blog has not only great DIY ideas, but things to do for fun ideas and decorating tips.

I got my second issue of PARENTS magazine today and saw this in it, and just had to share. While I myself do not have an Iphone, I would have loved to have had something like it for my phone when Peyton was 6-12 months old. Definately getting this for the next person I know having a baby.


Fischer Price iPlay, $14.99
