Table Talkers & Sugar Scrubs… 2 eBooks Giveaway!

You may remember my raving review about the eBook, Table Talkers, written by Erin from In Between Laundry.
We are still loving Table Talkers, and it has become the tool that gets my Krash to focus on eating.  If he isn’t eating-he can’t join in with our fun!  We now have quite a few family favorites and play them often while eating.
I am excited that Erin is back as a blog sponsor and is offering another chance to win not only her Table Talkers eBook, but also this amazing eBook, A Year of Sugar Scrubs

Table Talkers ~ Giveaway!

I am thrilled to share a new eBook with you, Table Talkers, written by Erin from In Between Laundry.

I was recently sent this eBook to review and was a bit nervous because mealtime around our house is a bit chaotic thanks to a special someone who detests eating in general. Our little precious Krash is our meal time trouble maker and often brings me to the point of almost tears. IMG_3812_thumb1 PacMan is the exact opposite, loves and eats everything! Ladybug is a good mix-some nights rejecting like K and some nights embracing new foods like P. The idea of adding fun to this time of the day seemed about as possible as, hmmm…pigs flying, and more. You know, it seemed virtually impossible.image_thumb2
But, we gave it a go and I printed out the wonderful cards to keep handy at the table and I read through them to choose a few that I thought might be worth a shot for my 2, 5, and 9 year old.

Thankfully the night we first tried a Table Talker idea, we were eating a meal that Krash liked, so it was a relative good-mood evening. We started out with a game that has since become a family favorite. Someone has to think of a movie/tv show that we are all familiar with {example Nemo}. Then the person gives a 1 word hint {example: fish}. We each get a turn to guess based on just the one word clue. If nobody gets it, the person gives a second clue {example: ocean}. I was AMAZED with how many we got with just 1 word! For example I thought of the movie Robots and my clue word was “dishes” and Pac got it right away!

Weekly Homeschool Planner Giveaway!

It’s no big secret that one of my best friends is Jolanthe from Homeschool Creations.  I met her online years ago and our friendship went from blog comments, to emails, to phone calls, to visits!  This is one thing I am most thankful that God has given me through blogging-true friendship with Jolanthe and a few others!  Here is us cheesing while at Relevant last year!


I tell you all of that so you know upfront that I am TOTALLY biased and think anything she creates is simply wonderful.  I feel I must disclose this in a huge way!  So, now that you know that, I am honored to host a giveaway for my friend and her wonderful Weekly Homeschool Planner, even though I don’t even use it myself!  The only reason I don’t use hers is because I created my own {just for myself}.  We do many of the same things and even talked a lot as she was creating the planner. 

I am excited to be able to host a giveaway for you and bless one of my readers with a copy of her wonderful planner!

HUGE Montessori Print Shop Giveaway!


As you have probably noticed, my blog has taken a turn in a more Montessori focused direction. “Why?” you ask…because my beliefs are largely based in the Montessori Method. I did an internship at a wonderful Montessori School while in college and fell in love. I read many of the books, studied the method. I wanted to go to school the extra year to become certified to teach Montessori but I needed to begin working so I stuck with the public school system. My heart never left Montessori though!

Although we do not have a full Montessori based homeschool, many of my ideas stem from Montessori. When I found Montessori Print Shop, I fell in love. When they signed on to be a blog sponsor and allow me to host this AMAZING giveaway I was thrilled! This is probably my all time favorite giveaway and I am still in shock that I get to be a part of blessing someone with this gift that Montessori Print Shop is giving one of you.

Here’s a small glimpse into the other files I now own, {and one of you will too}!
