From Your Hostess

This week I focused on a few goals for 2016 with product reviews to help with the goals as well as sharing Hazel's Wild Kratts themed birthday party (it includes free printables and some fun ideas for doing this type of party)!! For Crafty Weekends I reviewed Creative Kids Complete Photo Guide to Knitting and we moved Crafty Weekends to Sunday evening to have less confusion with this link party. Crafty Weekends is open for all crafts and craft related reviews!! My goals for 2016 thus far (another one will be shared tomorrow) are focusing on teaching Hazel Spanish, finding more joy in every day life, growing closer to Jesus, and finding more time to relax.

Now for This Week's Party 

A Few Simple Guidelines: 

1)  Link any kid-friendly, child-centered post. Please no etsy shops or giveaways, etc.  Remember to link to your actual post and not to your blog home page. If you have a general adult-made craft you should share at Crafty Weekends!!

2) Post the Sharing Saturday button on your sidebar or somewhere on your blog to help spread the word.
