It’s Party Time!!!

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

I am excited to be joining in on the Ultimate Blog Party 2010 hosted by 5 minutes for Mom.  I started blogging a little over a year ago and am hooked.  I have “met” so many creative mommies and am so thankful for all the ideas that we have shared.IMG_0881 My name is Michelle and I am elementary school teacher turned  stay at home mom to 2 beautiful little girls.  Emily is 3 years old and Juliette is 9 months old.  On my blog I share all the fun, creative and crafty things that we do during the day.  In June I will be married to my husband,  and best friend for 6 years.   It is because of my wonderful husband that I am able to stay home with my little girls.  They may drive me crazy sometimes, but I am so thankful for this opportunity to be with them and teach them.

I love art and crafting of all sorts, in fact I have an associates in Commercial Art and at one time really wanted to be in advertising.  In addition to that I LOVE books.  I could spend hours browsing the shelves at our local  any library or bookstore.  So to combine my two loves I decided to  host stART (A Story + Art = A great stART) every Thursday.  This gives other families a chance to do projects connected to a book that they have enjoyed and share it with everyone.   Each week I love checking out all the wonderful books and projects to go with them!

Thank you for stopping by my corner of the blogosphere and enjoy the party!!

There are so many cool prizes to be won at this year’s Ultimate Blog Party, but my top three picks would be:

  1. The Grand Prize: Toshiba Satellite L505D-ES5025
  2. #32 – $25 Target Gift Card
  3. #31 – A $20 Amazon gift certificate

Hi Michelle, I love your idea of sharing crafts about the books that you read. I honestly never thought of doing that. We read so many books though, surely we could think of some. I will have to come back and read what some of the ideas are!

Hope you have a great time at the party this week and meet lots of great bloggers and friends!

HI Michelle ... I began following you just a couple months ago but love all of your great homeschooling ideas! Even though my girls are a little older {8&7} it's still neat to get HS ideas from you. I love the idea of the stART thing and I would like to give it a try.
blessings! Kathy k.

We are bookworms over here!! I could live at the library. I'm so sad I'll never be able to read all the books in the world. =p We could visit up to 3 libraries in a single week sometime. And you don't to have pay money to take the books home! Wow! =p stART is a fantastic idea.
