Rubber Stamps and Scrapbooking – Keep Kids Busy with Crafts This SummerWritten by Robb Ksiazek
They’re out of school and back to torment neighborhood this summer. You remember days. Boredom is a common thought, even with all stuff to do. Mow lawn, go to baseball games, and hang out with friends. How can they be bored?
It is really not that tough to find things to do, but it seems like a lot of work just trying to find them. What could kids do that will actually make them learn something? Just because they are out of school doesn’t mean they have to shut their minds off.
Scrapbook Your Summer
Summer is a time for having fun with friends and enjoying finer things in life. There are trips to beach, amusement park, and ballgame. Memories will be had by minute. Preserving memories is crucial. The boring rainy days will no longer be mind-numbing when there is scrapbooking to do. With all pictures you are going to take, there must be a cool place to store them.
Sharing summer memories is fun, but most importantly, it is a way to recall those memories in future. It’s fun to look back on past summers and laugh at fun times with friends and family.
Stamp for Fun, Stamp for Years
5 Reasons to Organize Your Home TodayWritten by Karen Fritscher-Porter
Home organization isn't just for neat-nicks or those drawn toward organized living. Even if you don't fall into those two stereotypes, you should consider learning and implementing some home organizing techniques. Why bother? Here are five good reasons to organize your home:
PEACE OF MIND - When you have a closet packed full of miscellaneous items, don't you sometimes think "I've got to put that on my to-do housekeeping list"? Or you think "I've got to go through that closet to find those missing papers, shoes, whatever." And then when you don't do it, you get a nasty reminder every time you open that closet door. Now multiply that scenario and thought pattern by number of other areas in your home that give you that same feeling. When it's visible, clutter weighs on your mind because you can't forget about it. It's there every time you open closet door! So getting organized once and for all could decrease your stress levels by putting your mind more at ease.
MORE TIME - Home organization means less time spent searching for things. You can find what you want now, not in 15 minutes, an hour or perhaps never. Being able to find your ski jacket instantly means 15 more minutes of skiing time. That sure sounds like a lot more fun than spending those 15 minutes searching through your closet for a warm jacket.
ANSWER FEWER QUESTIONS - Where are my shoes? Where is my purse or wallet? Have you seen my keys? Where's my backpack? I'm late! Have you seen my brown sweater? If all family members know home organization system, then they know where to find their stuff without asking you. But even if they don't, at least you can answer their questions quicker and without stopping what you're doing to help them search.
