46 PUN-FILLED THANK YOU GIFT IDEAS ::: The Craft Patch
About Jennifer: I’m a stay-at-home mom who loves to create. It keeps me sane. But we’re just a young family starting out, so I do everything on a budget. The Craft Patch is where I share… well, anything I think is worth sharing! Check back often for inexpensive sewing projects, crafts, home decor, recipes, money-saving tips, holiday ideas, and my latest addition: Pinterest Tested, where I try popular Pins and see if they live up to their claims. Jennifer can be found on Facebook and Pinterest.

BETTER BOOKS FOR THE BOTTOM OF YOUR BEACH BAG ::: Sisterhood of the Sensible Moms
Blogging has leveled a serious hit on our reading time. While time on the laptops makes our bloggy world go round, we could use some time away to unwind and catch up on some good reads. With this in mind, there’s only one thing our husbands should do for us this summer: lifeguard the kids on the beach so we can get some ever-loving reading done. With this miracle day in mind, here are some books that hit that perfect note. These books are like the perfect beach snack—not complete crap, but nothing too fancy either. Bon appetit!
Here’s the deal. Mothering in isolation is not a good idea. Trust us, we know. You could end up that weird chick on the playground.
We started out in this parenting thing in new towns, with new babies and no mommy friends. Fast forward. Our friends had kids, we made new mommy friends, and we now have seven kids between us from teenager to preschooler (Erin has 5, Ellen has 2) , so we always have lots to talk about.
We are infinitely blessed with great girlfriends full of good ideas. We were struck by how lucky we are to have them and how everyone should be so lucky. Well, now YOU are, because we are starting the Sisterhood online.
God bless the internet, because now we can take this mess global. If we can’t talk you out of your tree, we’ll join you in your tree house.
Hmmm, I think we’re gonna need a bigger tree house.
