From Pinterest to Pinerly, a Beta Tester’s Story

Have we talked about my Pinterest obsession lately? At this moment I have 95 boards, 4227 pins and 338 followers (Jan 1, 2013 update: 1,031 followers!).

Welcome to My New Home

Welcome to the new home of Leave Me to My Projects, on my very own, hosted, registered domain, for real blog.

I am in the process of transferring over the old to the new site here, but I imagine it might take a little time, so I will be officially relaunching LMTMP on February 2nd, 2012.

In the meantime, you can still find me on Facebook, or follow me on Twitter or Pinterest.

There are so many wonderful things coming, you wouldn’t want to miss all the goodness, now would you?

Indoor Kids Activities – Bubble Wrap Hopscotch

It’s cold, it’s windy, it’s gross outside. And we have a 3 1/2-year-old. Now we have months upon months of indoor play time to fill up. What to do?

Our Baby Bear was introduced to hopscotch this past summer. Although she still doesn’t fully get it, she is all about jumping in the squares. It’s too cold out for sidewalk chalk, but I found this little piece of brilliance on Pinterest, and will be executing it the second something arrives in bubble wrap.
