Book Review of Step One, Step Two, Step Three and Four

I received a reader's copy of this book from the Author for review. I was not compensated for my review and the thoughs and opinions are my own.

Step One, Step Two, Step Three and Four

I was extremely excited when I was asked by author Maria Ashworth to review her book Step One, Step Two, Step Three and Four. Maria is a step mother raising a blended family as well so I knew with that in common this book was going to be an interesting read.

A Quick and Easy Craft Project

As a Mom, whether you are working or staying at home, it is often hard to find time to do craft projects. I don't know about you but I find crafts to be very relaxing after a stressful day. For that reason I look for projects that can easily be broken down in to smaller steps that don’t have to be done at once, or projects that are very quick and easy. A quick and easy craft project that I love is making tile coasters.

All For Mamas Link Party – Week 5 #allformamas

All For Mamas Link Party Week 5

The All For Mamas Link Party Week 5 is ready to begin. Week 4 of the All For Mamas Link Party was a little quieter than week 3. It made it easier to read and comment on the all the posts linked in, but it makes it harder to choose just one post to be the featured post because they are all so good.

There were several new bloggers joining in this week which is exciting that the word is still getting out.  The more bloggers that join in the more people see your post. I started this link up so we can get as much notice as we can to help get our blogs out there.

Fun Family Craft Night

Let’s have a Fun Family Craft Night

There is nothing that excites me more than when my whole family is together. I love family dinners, family movie time and family crafts.  We had a Fun Family Craft Night to make an Easter Bunny Project, just in time for Easter. 

Fun Family Craft NightFun Family Craft NightFun Family Craft Night

The age range for this project was 2 to 15 and everyone enjoyed it even though it was a fairly simplistic project. My 2 year old granddaughter needed help from her Mommy, but the 6 year old was able to do the project with minimal help, mostly just making sure to hold her items long enough for the glue to set enough to hold. Of course, the older children had no problems. The 15 year old enjoyed the project just as much as the 2 year old. Continue reading “Fun Family Craft Night – Easter Bunny Project”

Crafting for the Stay-at-Home Mom

I love crafting

Crafting is a great stress reliever, as well as a great sense of accomplishment when you finish a project.  I have dabbled in many crafts over the years including; cross stitch, stamping, scrapbooking, card making, beading, crochet, knitting and sewing. I am fortunate that my children are all in school so I have available time during the day to craft.  For moms with babies and toddlers at home I’m sure it feels almost an impossible to find time.  I know when I had little ones at home crafting was difficult. With that being said, I am going to start adding some crafting for the stay-at-home Mom that can be done if you don’t have a lot of time. Continue reading “Crafting for the Stay-at-Home Mom”

Movie Time

I originally wrote the post Family Movie Time for Our Blended Family as a guest post for ThatNoiseIsMine.com   Stop by and give her blog some love.

Because we are a blended family, we try to incorporate as much family time as we can because we are not all together 24/7. One of our favorite ways to spend time together is family movie time.

What we Like

We all love Disney Movies who doesn’t for family movie time? Disney Movies are perfect because they are well suited for the full range of ages in our family. From my youngest granddaughter who is 2, right on up to our son-in-law who is 22.
