Now…on to our fabulous guest blogger of the day!
Hi everyone! I am so nervous…..you must be able to see my hands shaking, right? This is my first guest post on anyone else’s blog. I mean, if I mess up on my own blog….it’s my blog- but I so want to make sure that I make no mistakes on someone else’s blog. Oh well, here’s my disclaimer: If I make any mistakes or offend anyone….don’t blame Ashley! 🙂 Now…on to the good stuff……HI!!!! I am Amanda and I usually blog at my little family blog,
You can find it here. I know, you probably think…another blended family story- how boring. I probably would. But it’s not always like that. I married my next door neighbor. We have six kids. I have three sisters. Six nieces, one nephew, one great-niece, and one great-nephew. How could life be boring? Chaos-yes. Boring-no. In all my spare time, I love to craft! I am sure you are thinking to yourself….what kind of crafts? I know you are…I am part mind reader, too. Well, I love paper crafts.. This past year, I handmade all of our Christmas Cards! It was a big undertaking…and it really narrowed the Christmas Card list….I sent out 20. I also have made a few paper collages. I actually love this. There is a lot to be said for the stress relief that comes from tearing up paper.
The outfit above I made for a friend’s daughter. Isnt’ it fun? The picture below is a diaper changing pad. I saw a tutorial on a craft blog and tried it. I love it!
Another thing we love to do around our house is bake. Okay- with six kids we do a lot of cooking, baking, microwaving, sandwich making……you name it-we do it. Feeding these animals, er kids…is a tough job and takes a deep wallet! A few weeks ago we tried these cupcakes:
They turned out so cute! The kids did most of the work, after I gave them a tutorial on how to make each animal!
Thanks so much for the super cute guest post Amanda! Be sure to check out her cute blog and take her quiz! (gotta figure out how she made that quiz…wow I am impressed!)
