Brief Bits

Here's a quick round-up of what I've found on the web recently that got my creative juices flowin':

1.  From The TomKat Studio - Crab Shack Party
This birthday party idea... for a little boy named Tommy... to.die.for!  Connor's birthday is unfortunately just a week or so before Christmas, so I'm toying with the idea of throwing him half-birthday parties in the summertime so he can have fun with his friends.  This idea is definitely going into my file.

2.  From Bakerella - Hamm and Potatoes Cake Pops
One of these days, I'd love to attempt to make one of Bakerella's famed cake pop creations - they're so adorable, and she makes it look so easy!  I especially love her rendition of Mr. Potato Head - detailed instructions can be found here.

3.  From Design Mom - Once a Year Books
One of my goals throughout Connor's young life is to be really diligent at documenting his milestones and major events... and the little ones, too.  I love this idea of a Once a Year Book - chronicling the first 18 years of your child's life with a single picture and a little journaling.  These books are sold by an Australian company, and are about $69US.  Not cheap, but you could use this idea to inspire you to make your own Once a Year Book.

4.  From Noble Pig - Snickerdoodle Cheerio Cookies
Seriously, they had me at Snickerdoodle.  These look delicious, especially with the added crunch of the Cheerios... YUM!

5.  From V and Co. - Tie Rattle Snake Buddy
This looks like a really fun activity to do with your kids... definitely with a little boy.  And, a clever way to repurpose one of daddy's old ties.

6.  From 71 Toes - Home Tour
I love this blogger's home!  So beautiful and personal... check out all of her fun touches - her dining room, her family room and dining nook, and her entryway.  Just gorgeous! 

7.  From Crazy Domestic - Easy Menu Planning Using Days with Themes
This is a clever idea to help you break out of a menu planning rut - Mexican Monday, Takeout Tuesday, Favorite Friday, etc.  I really like this idea.

8.  From Leelou Blogs - HUGE $40 off Blurb book coupon code!
At the beginning of the year, I began Connor's Blurb book of the posts I wrote chronicling his NICU journey and entire first year... I have a lot of editing to do on it still.  But with a $40 off coupon code, BLOG2010, I now have an amazing incentive to get that book done before the August 31, 2010 expiration. 

9.  From Crap I've Made - Kitchen Art
Here's a fun little, inexpensive idea to dress up the kitchen...  spray paint silverware and mount them inside an open frame.  This looks like a fun one... I think I may give it a try!

10.  From Our Best Bites - Quick Tip: How to Cut a Kiwi Fruit
Did you know that "a kiwi a day, keeps constipation at bay"??  Connor eats a lot of kiwis.  ;)  This is one of those "a-ha" tips - how to cut a kiwi without wasting so much fruit - you'll be glad you learned about.

Well, there you have it... 10 great finds. I hope something here inspires you, too!
