I love this Write to Grandma Kit at Frugal Family Fun. What a fun idea!
I'm definitely going to try this delicious sounding Orange Chicken recipe at A Year of Slowcooking. Have you seen this site? I became a little obsessed with reading it for a week or two after I first discovered it, and it inspired me to buy my first slow cooker last month.
There is mild drama over the shortlists for Book Blogger Appreciation Week (BBAW), and some interesting posts about the judging process. You can see and vote for the shortlists here. I've only skimmed some of the comments, like those on this post at Lost in Books. I'm a little less excited about BBAW (which starts September 14) than I was a few weeks ago, not because I wasn't shortlisted (I truly didn't expect to be, although of course it would have been nice), but because . . . well, I won't add to the drama. I might just have my own Stay at Home Mom Blogger Posting About Kids Books and Crafts and Other Stuff (SAHMBPAKBCOS) Appreciation Week sometime next fall. I know quite a few of you who could join in. Anyway, I am still going to try to participate in the BBAW daily themed posting next week, because it seems fun.
Tara Lazar at Writing for Kids (While Raising Them) posted today about a really cool-sounding site called Storybird, where you can design your own children's books, and even work on them collaboratively with other members of your family and friends scattered around the globe. It looks like a lot of fun. I'm going to look at it more fully with my son tomorrow.
