How Motherhood Has Changed Me

I “met” Meredith when she popped over to my blog one day from SITS.  Her blog, Perfection Pending, is one I can really relate to, as I’ve written more than a few times about coming to terms with my own wonderful imperfection.  So, when I saw that Meredith had a guest post series encouraging mothers… Continue reading How Motherhood Has Changed Me

What’s Creative About Arts and Crafts?

Today’s guest post is by Faigie Kobre, who we could all learn a few things from.  For whatever reason, my gmail account sorted her email into the spam folder, and I almost missed out on having her share her experience and opinions!  Thankfully, Faigie didn’t give up, and reached me through a friend, and, as… Continue reading What’s Creative About Arts and Crafts?

Crowdsourced Pesach Tips

It’s starting to feel like crunch time over here (and I’m not talking about all that matzah we will soon be eating).  It’s that time when I’m no longer purchasing chometz.  I’m getting creative with my dinner ideas, using up whatever is hanging around my pantry (and still edible).  And, of course, I’m cleaning and… Continue reading Crowdsourced Pesach Tips
