My New Gig: eHow’s Mom Channel

I have SUCH exciting news to share with you all today!  I’ve recently signed on as resident education and activities expert for the brand new mom channel over on eHow.  If you’ve ever asked the internet a question, then you’re likely familiar with eHow.  They’re in the business of providing knowledge to web browsers on just about every topic under the sun and from now on I’m in charge of what to do with the kids.

Over the last few weeks I’ve been working like crazy to put together five brand new projects for them and I’d love it if you stopped by and gave them a look.  Featured on the homepage today are my watercolor cards, perfect for Mother’s Day.  And if it happend to slip your mind that it’s currently Teacher Appreciation week, then you really must check out my step-by-step on how to create the ultra cute Teacher Terrariums pictured above.
While you’re hanging out at eHow Mom, be sure to also peruse the stuff by my new colleague Janet Lansbury.  I really respect what she has going on over at her own blog and I’m thrilled to be working alongside her.  You may even remember that I mentioned her here (the last link of the post).
Thanks for letting me gush about my new gig (I’m truly giddy with excitement!).  Back with something fresh tomorrow.

My grand daughter and I are going to make the terrariums today in my room from http://roomstogrowusa.web12.hubspot.com/hobbyrooom/ when I pick her up from school today.

Stephanie, thank you so much for the shout out and your kind words. I was excited to learn that we’d be blogging side by side. I’m REALLY glad you are doing the crafts, because your ideas are uniquely beautiful and look so fun to make…and also because I am the absolute WORST (I’ve never met a set of directions I couldn’t glitch). Anyway, thanks again, Stephanie. I’m looking forward to “working” together!

Great news – love the water colour cards and the cloud dough activities the most. Have pinned to reference next time we are looking for something new to try. Now just need to add flour and baby oil to the shopping list.
