Saturday Stumbles

Hello fellow stumblers!

I've got some exciting news that will really benefit Saturday Stumbles.  My good friend and writer extraordinnaire, Jessie Weaver from Vanderbilt Wife, will be the new host of Saturday Stumbles!  She's been a faithful linker every week!

While I've really enjoyed hosting this linky, I know that at times I've not given it the attention it needs.  Jessie will really be able to do that!

Please try to control your tears.  I'll still be an avid reader and linker when I can. 

Thank you to those of you who have been faithful stumblers!  I look forward to your links each weekend and will continue to look forward to them...just at a different home :)

So let's get to stumbling!

Interesting article about life at home during wartime.

My mouth is drooling at this!

Such a great list!  It's coming up, ya know!

So go ahead and link up below!

Alternative Easter Egg Hunt: Painting

If you've been around Simply Staci long enough, you know that I like to spice up the traditional Easter egg hunts.  There's been leggos, puzzles, and crafts.

Each year, it gets a little more difficult to think of something new, but this year we did paintings!

In each egg, I put stickers of each letter of the kids' names.  Then I put various stickers of hobbies they were into.

Each kid was then given an 8 1/2 " by 11" canvas where they placed all their stickers. 

Once they were in place, they painted all over it.  This was hard for the kids to understand.  They really liked the stickers and didn't want to "mess them up" by painting over them.
After the canvas was painted, they removed the stickers to reveal their masterpiece!

Ok, so this is mine, but look how purty!  But here's a finished product:
They really enjoyed it and had a good time!

Saturday Stumbles

This has been a whirlwind week for me which sadly has resulted in no stumbles. I was invited to a Nordstrom Rack tweet up where we were pampered and then shopped till we dropped. Then it was a co-worker's wedding shower. Next was the Dove Awards!! My best friend Amanda I and got tickets. Great tickets! We were like 5th row from the stage. (It will be televised Tuesday, April 26 on Gospel Music Channel.  Look for us!)  Then Friday night was babysitting the niece and nephew where we created an art gallery, popped popcorn, and watched Toy Story 3.

So what did you stumble? I'd love to read what you found! Link up below!

Saturday Stumbles

Happy weekend fellow stumblers! Hope you had a good week and an even better weekend planned! We started state testing this week and it is just awful! It is 5 days of absolute torture. I just sit there staring at 26 kids for 2 hours. No reading, writing, napping, facebooking, pinning...NOTHING!

So bring on the weekend!!

Gospel ABC Scrapbook

Now, THIS is a scrapbook I can get on board with! I want to do this SOOO bad!

What Can You Make From a Plastic Lid?
Who knew there were so many possibilities from a stinkin' plastic lid??

Neighbor Christmas gift
Ok, don't write this off because it's Christmas.  This could easily be adapted for a hostess gift or really for any holiday.  So simple and cheap...and practical!

Happy Easter weekend!

"Oh praise the One who paid my debt!"

That's the true miracle of the Resurrection...that He took our place! Thank you Jesus!

Now, if Jesus was walking around in human form today, I have no doubt He'd eat at this place...(nice segue, huh??)

The 10 Commandments of Chic-Fil-A
Jon Acuff is a self proclaimed Chic-Fil-A expert and he is sharing the 10 Commandments of Chic-Fil-A. Funny!

Does Your Blog Have Clear Direction?
My answer to that question is...nope. I hate that, but it's the truth. You've probably noticed that I'm only posting Saturday Stumble posts. I'd rather not that be the case. Thank you to the few faithful SS linkers that consistently link up each week...even though I have no clear direction. I definitely need to think and chew on this post.

10 Things to do While Sitting in a Restaurant
I love this because it gives great ideas instead of plopping the iphone in front of them.

Praying in Color
What a neat concept to help children learn a different way to talk to God.

Alright friends, time to link up what you stumbled this week:
