You know I've been doing some work with Klutz lately, and it's been a blast.
A few weeks ago, we held a twitter event filled where the main focus was to share ideas for handmade gifts for the whole family. What was shared was amazing. Honestly. I'm ready to clear off the table and get my craft ON.
So I thought I'd share a bit from that event so that if you weren't able to make it, you'd still get the info. And? You can even win all FIVE of the books I share here. For real. So … Read More...
Books are all over our home, all of the time.

It's a long process--but it's … Read More...
Elementary School spans such a wide age range, that it makes sense that this would be our biggest guide.

From games to crafts, indoor toys and out, this list is everything you need for gifts for elementary schoolers--all of the must-have games and fun for the whole year long.
Here's the skinny. . .

Gift guides are my favorite.
As an educator and blogger, I am always on the lookout for products that make sense for kids.
And really, so many times I am sent fabulous products to look at, try out, and share with you guys. But always, my gift guides consist only of products that we have tried, we have loved, and we wholeheartedly recommend to others.
Remember to check out our other gift guides--this year I had to break up my one gift guide into several smaller ones so that we'd … Read More...
