I have been whining and moaning about finding some things for my kids to do that would keep us from being in the heat and also be constructive.

Imagine my relief and joy when I found out AC Moore just released their Summer lineup for kids to do free craft projects. I’m a huge fan of theirs because when we were stationed in Savannah, Georgia there was a mall literally right outside the gate with AC Moore in it . The kids and I spent a lot of time in their especially when hubby was deployed.

The Details

5 Comments on AC Moore Kicks Off Free Summer Activities for Kids With Card Making for Veterans & Troops and T-Shirt Making with Simply Spray

  1. First off I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.
    I have had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there.
    I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first
    10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying to figure out
    how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Cheers!

  2. Do you mind if I quote a couple of your posts as
    long as I provide credit and sources back to your site?
    My blog is in the very same area of interest as yours and my users would certainly benefit from a
    lot of the information you provide here. Please let me know
    if this ok with you. Many thanks!

  3. This design is spectacular! You obviously know how to keep a
    reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost.
    ..HaHa!) Excellent job. I really enjoyed what you had to
    say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!

  4. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming
    having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% sure. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
