Thanks for sharing Inside A Black Apple
Just open up the PDF file, get some nice heavy paper of your choice and print away. Easy as pie to some beautiful scalloped table numbers.

I am going to consider it a sign that Hostess with the Mostess has a recipe for Lettuce Wraps on her site. I think I'll make them tonight. 4 times in one week. Nothing wrong with that. They should be healthy...they are made with lettuce. It's like I'm on a lettuce diet. Yep, that's it.
Get the recipe here.

Yesterday while at our local mall, I purchased the Takeout Menu Organizer from Knock Knock. I've already been putting in the piles of menus that we have collected and writing down frequently called numbers.
I look forward to the day when our kitchen is done and we can set this on the shelf.

Don't you just love paper. I do. I also love pictures that are a little blurry in weird spots.
As I was shooting, I got a visitor. Meet Whisper. He's the neighborhood cat. Seriously, no one knows where he came from, but everyone loves him. He loves bologna.
He seemed very interested in my photography subject.Well, maybe cats don't like paper after all. Looks like I've bored him.

I used to frequent the YMCA before moving and someone would bring in their old Family Fun magazines for the magazine rack. On more times that I can count I would think of how I could possibly sneak the magazine out or possibly just rip out a couple pages. I could never bring myself to do it, so I subscribed on my own.
While checking out the FamilyFun.com website this morning I came across a calendar that is updated every day in October with a new craft. Hello after school activity. I need to get myself some youngins'.

I don't even know if espn has a password. It was just an example.
Behold the password log from See Jane Work.
Writing your password down and sticking it to your computer monitor sort of defeats the purpose of a password.
Keep usernames, passwords, account numbers, and more in a place where you can find them (but the temp who uses your desk after hours can't), with the Password.log from Buttoned Up.
Sized to fit in your handbag or desk drawer (one that locks) the Password.log has plenty of space for all your personal and professional log-in info.

I have searched for years to find the perfect place to write down my appointments, dates, etc. It has not been an easy process. Once I'd buy one, I would be so into for a brief moment in time. I'd fill it out and a few weeks later, I'd forget about it and move on to another. Nothing ever felt quite right.
And then, I stumbled across this lovely at Paper Source. I have officially fallen in love. I write my to-do list down and mark things off with a highlighter. I'm going on my 3rd week now, and things still look good. Cross your fingers for me. I think this one might be a keeper.
