Grandma Ideas Link Party 9

In my last post, I mentioned that I would be changing things. I don’t know how  many of you, Dear Readers, visited my site between then and now.

I had a new theme, changed things on the front page, and worked, and worked, and worked on PHP code. (Did I mention that I worked on the coding?)

I was feeling rather smug that all was well. Then I noticed a glitch. A doozy of a glitch.

That smug feeling should have been a warning to me. Whenever I feel like that, I get humbled because something MAJORLY stressful happens.

And it did.

With the code. I won’t bore you with the details. But, you will notice I’m back to my old theme. I just hope that I’ve removed all of the changes that I had made.

Le sigh, as the French would say. . .

Now that I’ve moaned about all of the learning that I have been experiencing, let’s get on to the link party!

Changes in the Air

Dear friends, you know what experts say about change, don’t you?

They say that without change, things stay the same and ultimately stagnate.

Ugh!

They say that without change there is no adventure in life.

Double ugh!

They say that change is an opportunity.

Wahoo!

(I sure would like to meet that anonymous ‘they’ person, wouldn’t you??)

change is coming to my siteThat being said, changes are in the air. I haven’t made changes in my site design for over 2 years. I haven’t made changes in my newsletter in over 2 years.

In technological time, that is ANCIENT! Just like me . . .

So, this is a heads up that I’m going to take the opportunity to make a few changes. To have an adventure. (I sure hope it’s an enjoyable one and not one that makes me say four letter words like rats!)

Will there be huge, gargantuan changes? you ask.

Not really. I anticipate that they will be smallish in nature. Noticeable, yes, but not overwhelming to you.

So, hang on to your hats, Dear Readers! Let’s see what change brings.

St. Patrick’s Day Wreath

Our grandchildren enjoyed making the leaf wreaths last fall. So, I thought that I would create a shamrock wreath for them to make to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.

This St. Patrick's Day Wreath is really easy for kids to make -- and it takes little preparation on Mom's part1

First, you will need to print up the circle base for shamrock wreath on green card stock. Cut it out.

Print up the shamrocks on regular green-colored paper. Rough cut around them. (If your grandchildren are small and their cutting skills are not developed, cut out the shamrocks for them. If your grandkids have cutting skills, let them cut out the shamrocks.)

Next, print up and cut out the rainbow shamrocks. (My grandchildren only put 2 rainbow shamrocks on their wreaths. Yours could add more if they so desired.)

Have the grandchildren smear glue from a glue stick on the back of the shamrock and put the shamrock on the circle. Continue gluing on shamrocks until the circle is completely filled.

Ta da! Your grandkids have made a lovely green St. Patrick’s Day wreath. They can put it on their bedroom door, a wall in their bedroom, or on their fridge at home.

Do your grandchildren live far away? (I feel your pain!) Download and save my PDF files and  e-mail them to your grandkiddos.

Or, you could print them up and send them in the mail. Grandkids always love getting mail!.

Here’s wishing you a fabulous St. Patrick’s Day!

Grandma Ideas Link Party 8

My husband and I decided to go on a little trip. In case you didn’t know, we enjoy traveling to warm places when it is cold at home. Right now, at this very moment, we are happily having a warm, sunny time in Cancun, Mexico.

I wish you could all be with us! Isn’t this a gorgeous place?

But since you aren’t, please feel free to participate in my link party! Will that compensate you for not being in Cancun with us?  (No? I didn’t think so, either. . . )
