Monday Mayhem

Happy Monday Y'all!

Yep we can still be happy it is Monday because tomorrow is another day of Summer Vacation Day :)  Although I did have to spend this morning in a textbook workshop.  Wow, it was only three hours but it felt like all day. Glad that is over with.  I got to swim through it with Greg from  We survived, I think, hehe!

For some reason I have been thinking about Flip Flop Cookies!  What is up with that.  My daughter helped me make some yesterday for the in-laws that came to visit us on the boat.  They turned out so cute.

And then today I found this at the Dollar Tree! (and yes I did some shopping)

This looks like an Open House idea for the little fish.

I have a couple of projects in the works.  I had so much company last week I didn't get them finished like I hoped.  But there is always tomorrow.  Let me know what you think.

I want to share a tip with you that I love, love, love!  It is a glue tip, hehe, pun intended.  You know those glue bottle that get clogged, EVERY TIME a kinder opens it.  Well here is a solution.  I spend the first day after school taking off all the tips and spreading Vaseline in each one.  I know, it sounds crazy but it works.  I didn't have to unclog but one glue bottle all year.  REALLY!  Yes I did have to peal off some glue off the top, but they didn't clog.  It was a life saver.  Oh and I used Krissy Miner's Top Secrets for Glue Techniques to teach them a little dab will do.  Got to love those little guys.  I will confess, I did show her Top Secrets more than once throughout the year :)

Have a great night out there, and just keep swimming!


  1. Love the flip flop cookies!! They are cute:)
    I will have to use that glue tip this year. I usually have the kiddos bring in glue sticks but sometimes you really need liquid glue.
