I'm running late tonight so rather than struggle to come up with some crackerjack copy I will just cut to the chase and share with you some of the clever posts from last week. To see more of last week's Motivated Monday click here.
First up, I am intrigued by this submission from
She shares with all of us bloggers out here how to add photo menus to our blogs. These could be used for more popular posts, categories, or specific areas of interest such as your home or project gallery.
She is using Blogspot as a host to her blog and I work with Typepad which is rather finicky about what it allows me to add to my sidebar but I am anxious to see if this would work for me too.
Add this to my to do list.
I've got to say I am totally amazed at the variety of posts that get linked up here on Motivated Monday. Like this one from
I never would have thought of this but I sure am glad she did.
Rene offers us a tutorial on how to make this simple tool to help hook up some of those difficult to clasp bracelets. You know the kind I'm talking about.
One of my favorite bracelets I can only wear if someone is around to help me clasp it. This is a great idea. Thanks Rene.
When it came to organization or simplifying your life type posts I thought this idea of a DIY home decor organizer offered up by
She uses an inexpensive photo album to corral all of her fabric samples and paint chips. Throw something like this in your purse and you always have them to refer to when you are out shopping. So simple that it had me thinking, "Why haven't I thought of that?"
As I was visiting all of last weeks blogs I discovered this post of restaurant-waiting games for kids
I found myself wishing I had known her and read her blog when my kiddos were small. A few of them take me back but there were some new games that make me want to borrow somebody's kids and take them out to eat.
This straw wrapper worm game was my fave.
Isn't that so fun?
I am just coming off of a great family weekend so I didn't get around to Motivated Monday until this evening. I relish our time with the kids and I know you understand when I say I didn't have enough time to comment on each post this week but I did enjoy reading them all.
There were so many captivating ideas, motivating projects, and delicious recipes linked up. I wish I could feature them all but hopefully these few will give you a sampling of some of the fun and functional projects that were shared here last week on BeColorful.
