Grandma Ideas Link Party 39

Mendenhall Glacier by Juneau is gorgeous!I know that I’ve already shared a couple of pictures from our cruise to Alaska.

But is is okay if I share two more?

Thanks! You’re so sweet for letting me.

We went to Mendenhall Glacier which is 12 miles from downtown Juneau. I took this first picture on the path to the glacier.

Mendenhall Glacier by Juneau is gorgeous!The second picture is at the lake at the base of the glacier.

Isn’t it gorgeous? I should have taken a little video of the area so that you could see a panorama of this beautiful place. Alas, I didn’t. (Next time I will!)

If you are ever up in that neck of the woods, I highly recommend that you see the glacier.

The area is stunning!

Feed the Old Lady is a fun activity to accompany the story There Was An Old Woman Who Swallowed a Fly.Thank you everyone who participated in last week’s pin party. Such wonderful, creative ideas.

I have selected two to feature this week.

First, is the Feed the Old Lady box idea from Lisa at Syncopated Mama. This is an activity that goes along with the book There Once Was an Old Woman Who Swallowed a Fly. 

She has a link to some free printables that you can use for the activity. Cute!

Thanks, Lisa, for sharing.

These milk jug ghosts are so simple to make. Draw a face on the jug, cut the bottom off, and insert a battery-powered tea light in the mouth of the jug. Simple. Easy.

The second feature is the milk jug ghosts created by Samantha at Florassippi Girl.

They are super easy — and very inexpensive — to make. Why I bet you could make a herd of these in no time at all.

Lisa used the flickering battery-powered tea lights which I think is wonderful. The flickering lights make the ghost appear to be moving!

Your grandkids will love making them. So, drink lots of milk and make lots of ghosts!


I have some exciting changes in my link party. First, I am ceasing and desisting my link party in its current form. May it rest in peace. (Isn’t it appropriate that I’m laying my link party to rest during Halloween time? Where’s a headstone for it?)

So this is the last Grandma Ideas Sharing Time link party. A moment of silence please.

Party in your PJs is a Tuesday evening link party that starts at 7:00 p.m. Mountain daylight time. Come and join in the fun!Second, I am joining with some other WONDERFUL women as co-hosts for Party in Your PJs. Wahoo.

There’s Bree at Bumblebree Blog, Kim at The Cookie Puzzle, Lynda England Hardy at Reviews, Chew, and How-Tos, and Heather at Woods of Bell Trees I’ll share more information about them next week.

(I hope they’ll be patient with me as I work out all of the details . . . )

By participating in this party, you’ll get more exposure for your wonderful projects. Won’t that be wonderful?

I’m super excited about the changes and hope you are, too!

Are you ready? Great! Let the good times roll!

The rules are simple:

  1. Link to a specific post, not your home page.
  2. Link up something YOU made/wrote/created.
  3. Giveaways & other link parties are okay.
  4. No Etsy shops or business links.
  5. Don’t link and run. Try to visit at least one link and show them some love. You may make a new friend.

    Thanks so much for featuring my Feed the Old Lady Box, Nina! The new link party sounds fun! Loved the photos from Alaska – my parents took a cruise there this summer and it just looks amazing!
