Review by the cobalt blue expert

I'd like to thank Laurie Stroupe for the wonderful review of the Baby Dipper bowl and spoon set on her blog, Laurie's Cobalt World Blog. She runs an online store for items made of cobalt blue glass. I love cobalt blue myself, so that drew me to her site and now I want to share it with you. Laurie's Cobalt World is definitely the go-to place for anything and everything that is cobalt blue. The Baby Dipper bowl fits in color-wise, though it is not, of course, made of glass, as that would not be terribly wise for a dish toddlers learn to feed themselves with. So, check out Laurie's site if you're looking for a brilliant blue gift idea!

Storytime Felt Giveaway on Lisa Reviews

Yes, we did go to Disney World not long ago and, yes, I will get around to posting pictures, but we took (gasp) 892 digital photos, so it will take me a while to get through them....

In the meantime, there are tons of fun giveaways going on out there. The one I'm writing about here is for a $25 gift certificate for Story Time Felts that is being given away on Lisa Reviews. I remember my grandparents having a set of felt scenes we could put together called Fuzzy Felt, I think. I miss Fuzzy Felt, so I hope that if I win the giveaway here it will bring back some fond memories.

Oooh! A new laptop!

No, I did not get a new laptop. Yet. I would dearly love to have one, but I do have access to one that works. Sort of works, that is. Anyway, the reason I'm posting is that I'm excited about the giveaway that 5 Minutes for Mom is hosting for a Toshiba Portege laptop. It looks like this is the latest and greatest with all the bells and whistles. The kind of laptop that would take me forever to learn all the features of, but one that would make my life a lot easier. I do have a great desktop, but that's the problem. It's only a desktop, alas. So, I've entered to win this wonderfully dreamy new laptop and am hoping for the best! Check it out!
