Happy 100th Post to Me!!

I can't believe this is my 100th post! Yea!!

I have been MIA around here this week, due to a virtual book-blogging conference, called Armchair BEA, over at my other blog, A Novel Idea...check it out if you have a moment!

Also, I have been busy packing myself and our four children for our vacation to New Buffalo, Michigan - we leave tomorrow! Whew!

I have two projects that I will be blogging about on here after I return from vacation.  Let me take a moment to share a little about them with you!

My first new project is called "Mary Elizabeth's Apron", which will be focused on completing one handcrafted project with my children each month.  My inspiration for this (besides my beautiful children!) was the blog, Twelve Crafts Till Christmas - please give it a look - it is awesome and inspriational!!

My second project is called "Bumblebees in My Backyard", and it will encompass my summer enrichment curriculum with my kids.  I will share my lesson plans and experience with all of you! Won't you please join me?

Finally, here are some gems from the blogosphere I've discovered over the past week or so...enjoy!


I will be on vacation all of Memorial Day Week, so my postings here will be light (or non-existent!) over the next week...see you soon!
