 From Your Hostess

This week I took some time to have enjoy adventures with Hazel while she was on vacation! We co-hosted Creative Kids Culture Blog Hop for this month, shared two fun new coloring books at Crafty Weekends, beautiful flowers from a monthly subscription, two fairy tales with African cultures weaved in, and a wonderful chapter book to read for Earth Day and National Princess Week (next week).   Creative Kids Culture Blog Hop is started last Sunday morning and Crafty Weekends (for everything crafty!) is on Sunday night!!

Now for This 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 it at Crafty Weekends!!

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