family fun friday

If you’re a mom keep reading because we have some wonderful fun ideas to inspire you with your little ones and family. My blogging friends are linking up craft ideas, fun in the kitchen, preschool & homeschool ideas, and ways to spend time as a family.

My blog is growing but I need your help, please like my facebook page and help spread the word about Thanks so much!

On Mondays I’ve been posting encouraging words for MOMs. If you’d like some encouragement I recommend reading my latest post “Faith” which is a post written to encourage moms in their faith!

This week I also posted on a FANTASTIC preschool curriculum that I plan to start using with my preschooler. It’s 28 weeks of four day a week fun and activities to keep your little one learning and busy. Created by a former school teacher and now SAHM, God’s Little Explorers is offering $4 off through June 9th. For $10 you get all 28 weeks plus loads of EXTRAS and all the $ raised is going to an orphanage in India. 🙂 Don’t miss out – order before June 9.


Also this week I shared some great FREE printables to make your own Father’s Day Card. Click the image for more information including a detailed tutorial.


On Fridays I host Family Fun Friday so you can meet all my blogging friends and get great ideas.

AND, if you haven’t met her already, please meet my co-Host Diane Haller from MyLifeAsRobin’s Wife. Diane is a volunteer co-host and she is awesome. She’ll be checking out your blog posts and commenting along with me and she helps me pick the top posts. We’ll be working together to help promote this link party! Please make sure to stop by Diane’s Facebook page and give her a “Like” when you have a chance {not required but it’s nice to do} :-).


Thanks to all my blogging friends for linking up last week at Family Fun Friday. I have a special YouTube Video for you at Thank You All My Blogging Friends! So many great ideas, crafts and things to do! If you link up, you permit me to use your pictures/ideas as part of future posts and/or social media. Once we have 200 links I will select a winner of some FREE jewelry. This will likely mean I’ll award a prize every other week. We had over 100 bloggers link up last week. You all are amazing – you bless my socks off with your awesome posts!

Some examples of the jewelry I am giving away. Your link-up and/or comment is your entry to WIN. BTW, I can make wedding party custom jewelry – contact me if you’re interested. 🙂
