Put a piece of your wedding gown into a necklace for your daughter to wear on their wedding day for her "something old."  I love this idea - my wedding dress was beautiful at the time, but terribly dated now.  I can't really see my daughter wearing it, but this is a nice way to incorporate it in to the ceremony. by tidebuyreviews

"I'm hitting pan on two shadows on the Naked 2 palette, which is pretty devastating. The Snakebite shadow as well as Suspect are my go-to colors, especially when I hit snooze one too many times in the morning, but still want to look put together in five minutes or less! It's pretty distressing that you can't replace the pans — Urban Decay, can we do something about this please?" - Laura Miller, photo editor by lauri

I really wish more women thought this way. Apparently fighting for the people who matter most in my life is considered something far more sinister. Maybe after having dreams slowly crushed by the weight of reality is when dreamers stop dreaming, and become haters that like, strike that, love to hate. Doesn't mean I'm quitting on you all. Just am FYI! by fern

If you can't see the words, it says:

 "A mark for every breath you took, every blink, every sleepy yawn. One for every time you sucked your thumb, waved hello, closed your eyes and slept in the most perfect darkness. One for every time you had the hiccups. One for every dream you dreamed within me.

It isn't very pretty anymore. Some may even think it ugly. That's OK. It was your home. It's where I first grew to love you, where I lay my hand as I dreamed about who you were and who you would be. It held you until my arms could, and for that, I will always find something beautiful in it." by Sara80

I saw one of our kindergarten teachers playing this game, and had to find a way to use it in my class. They LOVE it! We used it to review our spelling words. I choose one King or Queen at a time to come sit in the royal throne. They put on a crown with a little pocket in the front. I put one word in the pocket, so they can't see it. The class spelled the word, and the King/Queen had to guess what the word was. In Kindergarten they did it with sounds. The class said the sounds in a word, and t... by sigulya

Crayon hot rocks:  If you have not done this yet, you need to. Simply warm up the rocks in the oven (I did 220 for 10 minutes), then put them on a stack of newspapers (or something else you don't care if it gets crayon in it) and let the little ones go to town. Just remind them it is hot. I have done it with 2 1/2 year olds with no problem. My little lady often brings in rocks for me to "cook" so she can paint them by jimmie

Painting in a bag (my little one was about 9 months old here). This was a craft that we made for my mom. I put white paint on blue paper and stuck it all into a gallon sized storage bag. She just squished the paint around. I also like to put white paper in with blobs of different colored paints. . . she can see how they mix together to make other colors. Photo and original idea: Kristen Shawley by cara

It was somewhere on the Mediterranean. I was with Victoria Page.” “What?” she will say. “Do you mean the famous dancer?” I will nod. “Yes, my dear, I do. Then she was quite young, comparatively unspoiled. We were, I remember, very much in love.” by Raskolnick
