"I Want Chicken and Chi Chi's"

Today, I just wanted to post my favorite TV commercial at the moment. I hope you enjoy it too.

A Sale and a Treasury

This weekend I made a new treasury on Etsy. It features members of the INCrowdTeam. It's all Hoosiers. Come and take a look at Artsy Hoosiers. It will expire Tuesday 10:33 pm.
I also wanted to mention that everything in my shop is on sale through Friday. Everything is 10% off.

Homeschool Discounts


Well, it's Thursday. Time for some more how to homeschool information. It's getting close to the time when public schools will be getting back in session. That means school supply sales are approaching. Who doesn't like to save money? Nobody? I thought so. Anyway as homeschoolers we always take advantage of back to school sales on school supplies. You can find crayons, pencils, paper, folders, glue, erasers, scissors, calculators and anything else you might need at really cheap prices. The stores around here (Indy) have got all their supplies out and ready. Stocking up now when it's all plentiful and cheap usually means we don't have to buy any more of it for the whole school year.

In addition to school supply sales, homeschoolers can take advantage of teacher discounts at lots of bookstores and office supply stores. Barnes and Noble, Borders, Staples and lots more offer discounts for teachers including homeschool teachers. You may have to have proof that you are a homeschooler. Here is a great list of places to look for discounts.
We always have fun getting our school stuff for the year. It's even more fun for me when it's discounted. I hope you all have fun getting ready for school too.

Websites for WAHMs

Today I want to link wahms to some great sites and blogs. http://www.wahm.com/ is a great site for moms who are working at home. Some of the great things you'll find are slowcooker recipes, work at home job listings, business opportunities, message boards, advice, scam alerts for those business opportunities that sound too good to be true. Here are some other sites that you might find useful.

Week in Review

What a week! This week we found the owners of this girl who wandered onto our street. Her name was Karma. The posts from Tuesday are here and here.

We also spent a couple of days in the creek. My kids love messing around in the creek water.











This is what I love about the creek...I just have to remember not to drink a lot of tea before we go.

We also did a "photo shoot" for my new gypsy rag tote and I got it listed on Etsy. And while we were at it I retook a couple of pictures for my bug keeper.















Yesterday, I made a new treasury with spa/ bath and body things. Do you ever do a spa evening at home? This treasury has some great stuff for doing just that. Take a look at these great shops with spa stuff.
Well, that's my week in review. Of course I left out the boring stuff like laundry and dishes, but I'm sure you don't mind.
Have a great weekend!
