Usually the winter is a time for relaxation over here but things have been busy over here! We’ve had unseasonably warm weather in metro-area New York so we have been spending a lot of time outdoors, finding animal tracks in the mud, saying hello to the confused plants that are still growing and budding, and gathering kindling for the fires we hope to build, soon!
We have been doing lots of crafts and projects and reading lots of books that I want to recommend, too, but I have been using all my computer time to work. And that computer time has been severely limited with the baby waking up with a cough during the nights.
Which brings me to my announcements!
I am a new contributor over at LifetimeMoms. From working with them as an affiliate (as co-owner of Mamanista), I am impressed with their commitment to online moms and our voices. I will be sharing craft tutorials, ideas for learning, and thoughts on educational issues in the news. You can see all my posts here, plus find out with which television or movie character I most identify. Currently up:
- 5 Dos and Don’ts for Parent-Teacher Conferences
- Is College Worth It?
- How to Make a Snowman Marshmallow Pop
- Hey, Teacher, Leave Those Kids Alone (Play for Play’s Sake)
- 16 Gifts Kids Can Make
- 17 Educational Gifts for Kids
- 8 DIY Gifts for Kids
You may have noticed the addition of two banner advertisements. I took the plunge and also joined LifetimeMoms as an affiliate. This will not affect my content and I believe it will help me take the next steps with sharing more free, educational content with you!
Thank you for sticking around while I get caught up from the holidays!
