I've created a group at Flickr for Thoughtful Friday posts. Basically you can post any picture that has a quote to go along with it. It will be so nice to see all the pictures and quotes in one location so please consider joining up and adding yours! Check it out and join here:
Often people attempt to live their lives backwards; they try to have more things, or more money, in order to do more of what they want, so they will be happier. The way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you really are, then do what you need to do, in order to have what you want.
The Crafty Crow is approaching it's three month anniversary and to celebrate I am holding my first contest ever! It's a Funny Food contest for children and their adult helpers. There are five categories - all fruit, all veggies, breakfast, lunch/dinner, sweets - and five winners! Each winner will receive a tote bag stuffed full of craft supplies! If you and your kids are interested in participating go over to The Crafty Crow and read all the details. The deadline is June 22nd so I'll be able to announce the winner during my anniversary week. I hope you'll help me spread the word and then get cracking on your entries!
I've seen this meme around and thought I would do it since I so rarely do these things - not because I don't like them but I am so indecisive when it comes to thinking up answers that it takes me forever and a day to do it! (click the image to see it larger)

Open three windows. One with the list of questions, another open to Flickr and ready to do an image search, and a third to Big Huge Labs' Mosaic Maker (create a mosaic with 4 columns and 3 rows). Answer the first question, put your answer in the search field on Flickr and choose one of the images from the first page to represent your answer. Click on the photo then copy and paste the url into the #1 spot on the Mosaic Maker. Do that for all 12 questions, then click create and post the results to your blog! Your kids will have fun with it too!
