30 things to do with egg shells – pretty cool, who knew?

Be yourself and proud – a must read post with a great reminder

And one last thing before we go, we are thinking of doing a LINK LOVE here on our weekly sparks post. What does this mean?  You can leave a link to a blog post of yours that is sparkable. This way we can get more great links to amazing content as we know we miss some.
