Jim Warren

Jim Warren

This man happens to be one of my favorite artists. He does a lot of surreal and fantasy art that is just amazing. Whether it’s a painting with someone ripping through the canvas or seeing some of my favorite Disney characters outside of their regular world, I am always amazed at his artistic talent. I hope you will be too.

I am starting you on the… Continue reading

Interior Paint Calculator

Friday, December 1st, 2006

Sometimes I run across things that I’ve looked up to solve a real life problem and I think to myself, if this helped me, I’m sure it can help other people with the same dilemma.

Craft Shows

Friday, December 1st, 2006

Craft Shows

Crafts shows are always one of my favorite parts of the holidays. At a craft show, you can always find something fun and homemade that might be the perfect gift for someone. I’ve often thought about making soap and selling it at a craft show, but I really had no idea how to go about it.

Well, if I would have known about this site, I could… Continue reading

The First Thanksgiving

The First Thanksgiving

This is a fun Thanksgiving site for kids and adults. It’s brought to you by Scholastic and you can really explore the “First Thanksgiving.” I absolutely adore how vibrantly colored this site is. I think it makes it twice as engaging as some of the others we’ve looked at this week. There are three main sections to this site and they are:

Okay, I’ll confess. The banner for sponsorship on this site is very annoying, but the content is great enough that I think you can overlook it. Here you can learn a little bit about the history behind Thanksgiving for both the U.S. and Canada, where it is celebrated in October.

Castle Garden

Castle Garden

Heads up genealogists and family tree researchers, because here at Castle Garden, you can get free access to the amazing database of immigrants who arrived between 1830 and 1892, which of course, falls in the time period of Ellis Island’s opening.

Frost Date Selector

Friday, November 17th, 2006

Frost Date Selector

This has been an odd fall so far. We haven’t had our first frost yet and the ground is still soft and somewhat warm. I personally can’t wait for the frost, because it will be the end of allergy season for me until the Spring, which means sweet relief.

So, do you want to find out more about your state’s frost activities? To do so, choose… Continue reading

Like Better

This is a really fun photo game and all it requires from you is to choose the photo you like better.
