Wanna Try That Wednesday!

There's so many wonderful projects and ideas that I come across while blog hopping and web surfing, that I thought they needed a place of their own.

Since Wednesdays I really don't have any kind of features going on, I thought this would be perfect. It doesn't mean that I won't post another entry if I want to, but at least every week, on Wednesdays, I will post my Wanna Try That Wednesday!


Wanna Try That Wednesday

- When I'm working on the computer, I love having the radio on in the background or the tv or something, so when I came across iSerenity online, I just knew it was exactly what I wanted to try. With sounds such as Rain (my favorite), Roaring Ocean, Thunder and Lightning and even Birds, you can be sure to relax.

- My husband actually came across this one when his alarm clock stopped working....I decided to take a look at it and see what the big fuss was about. Imagine if you will, an alarm clock on your computer, even if the internet goes out, once the alarm is set it will still work. You can set the time on Kuku Klok and even choose the sound to wake up to, including a Rooster. Nothing like that wake up call to make you think you're out in the country.

- With our summer trip to Texas coming up, I really want to try these Fabric Car Organizers. I have some cool fabric the kids would love and I think this would be perfect for keeping Nintendo DS's and games, books and snacks and even empty wrappers and trash that may otherwise end up on the floorboard.

- Speaking of trips, I'm going to plan our trip online with the Yahoo Trip Planner. You can add as many cities as you want to stop over, you can make it public or just private, which means if you go public you can actually share your trip details with family and friends.

- I'm getting the kids more involved in the kitchen, they love cooking, so I want to try some of the tips offered by Simple Mom.

- I'm going to have to try this Apple Dessert in less than 5 minutes from 4 Reluctant Entertainers. It's simple and I think will be perfect for the summer when we're craving something sweet and simple.

- I'm thinking these Baked Doughnuts are JUST what I'm looking for, the recipe is from 101 Cookbooks. I'm a huge doughnut fan, so much so that I avoid buying them often because I can easily get through half a dozen on my own. But I'm craving some, so this may just be today's snack.

- I want to start Spring Cleaning and I'm thinking of making my own cleaner, so I can't wait to try these great tips from The Simple Dollar.

I like the new look of your blog, again! If you can share some tips on updating my blog, I'd really appreciate it! You are so creative!

I watched someone make homemade doughnuts on the food network a few weeks back and they looked so yummy! They looked really simple. If you make some, let me know if they are simple or if she's just making it look that way! :)

God Bless,
Meg

Love the new post idea- the car tote bag for trash looks like it could be extremely useful! And, I love the new layout with your pretty night gown and clothes line, and the hand stitched text! I love everything you do! How do you do it?!

What a neat idea! I'll have to jump in next week. Fun!!!

I'm digging the stitchery font on the new header. How funny - I was about to tell you the other day how much I loved your header and then you went and changed it again. So much talent - you scare me. LOL
