Wonderful Surprise!

Upon visiting Julies blog this morning, I was delighted to discover that I have been made the featured blog of her Spotlight Saturday!






Thank you for this honour Julie. As a relatively new blogger, I look forward to meeting (in the virtual sense!) all the new blog readers that will be directed here from your site. Your Spotlight Saturday is a great idea and a fantastic way to share great blogs with others. I know there are loads of interesting blogs out there that probably we're missing out on!


In other news, myself and the children designate Fridays as our "Art and Craft Day." We often do art on other days but we have specifically designated Fridays so that we never let a week go by without fitting in some creative activity!


Yesterday, we took some hen eggs, used a pin to make a hole at one end of the egg and extracted the gooey inside through this hole. We then had much fun painting the eggs. I was quite surprised at the fantastic results that my children (ranging in age from 2 to 12) produced! I think you'll agree that they make beautiful home decorations.




And we didn't let the egg whites go to waste either! After all that hard work, I baked meringue for dessert. Much enjoyed by all!

Ok, we're doing Easter already?? Gee, seems like it was Thanks...no wait Christm...no? Just kidding. That sounds like such a fun project. And the meringue is just a bonus!

Love,
Julie

You know what? I've never baked meringue, but it looked so tasty and yet not full of calories either...how much sugar/vanilla and what not do you add and how long do you bake it? Have a lovely weekend...Your new site is lovely and I truly enjoy reading it...Love, Bonnie B.

Stopping by via Julie at Nunnie's Attic. Great looking eggs! Talented kiddos! Did you save us some dessert? No, well, I'll come by again for a cup of coffee and maybe some honey buns. Welcome to blogland!

I was just over at Nunnie's Attic where Julie told everyone to march right on over here to say g'day to you, and I'm so glad I listened to her! You've got a great blog. I've enjoyed reading each post and I'm adding you to my blog roll right away! You're welcome at my place anytime!

What a fun idea to have an arts and crafts day! The eggs are beautiful - you've got quite a bit of talent there in your home!!

So sorry to read about your accident - it is such a shame that there are drunk drivers on the road. It saddens me to think of such incredible irresponsibility. So glad that you are okay though!

Blessings to you,
Erin
