Remember that great giveaway sponsored by CSN Stores a few weeks back? Well, I’ve been working with them again. With over 200 stores, and thousands and thousands of products to choose from, CSN Stores is your go-to source for anything and everything, whether you need a new serger, fabric storage solutions, some LED lighting for your craft room, or even some adorable shoes to compliment your latest creation. Check them out and check back here soon for my review of one of their great products and how you can use it in your sewing.
And I know, I know, I have this blog here and I should probably make something and write about it sometime, huh? But that would require me actually sitting down by myself, with no small children crawling on me, requesting things of me, and/or wiping various bodily fluids on me for at least a semi-extended period of time. I swear to you, SWEAR IT!, that I do have some fun sewing stuff coming. I may even have the next installment of lessons up and going soon. I hope I hope I hope.
In the meantime, I have been having fun making stuff with my boys, so I’ll show you that. My oldest is totally into science and experiments right now. The other day, we, along with a neighbor boy, decided to try out these bouncy balls from Scribbit. We talked about how different chemicals and materials combine to form completely different things.
They were super easy and fast to make. And nice and messy, but very easy to clean up. And not nearly as disgusting as the chicken-bone-in-vinegar calcium experiment from last week. bleck.
They didn’t really turn out as bouncy bally as the kids were expecting, but they did have some bounce to them.
And the kids had tons of fun throwing them around and remolding them. They were so fun, my kids want to make them again. Next week’s scheduled experiment is ice cream in ZipLock baggies. I’m super excited for that one.
So I’ll try a little harder to work in some sewing and blogging along with all our scientific summer fun around here. But just know that if I’m not around much, it means I’m hanging out with these monkeys instead.
And I kind of like them, so I hope you’re okay with that.
