Home Matters Linky Party Guidelines:

We are thrilled that you came by to link up today! Here are a few rules that hosts and co-hosts of the Home Matters Party follow, and we ask that you follow them, as well.
  1. Please link up no more than THREE posts each week--try to make sure that they are new links that you have not shared here previously. (Exception: Holiday/Seasonal specific posts may be shared once per year.)
  1. Please take some time to poke around and visit some of the other links.
  1. Please take some time to check out your hosts and co-hosts on social media.
  1. We appreciate the variety of blogs on the www; however, the Home Matters Party is for links on matters of the HOME. Please link accordingly.
  1. We ask that you do not add other Linky Parties, Blog Hops, or Giveaways--unless you begin the party with a new project, recipe or post.
  1. On the same note, please do not add links of an extremist, political or strong controversial nature. (The hosts and co-hosts read each and every blog post linked, and will contact you directly if you have linked something that does not fit into the realm of the party.)

A Treat for Bookworms

I've written about back to school time here at my blog.  I'll say it again, "I LOVE BACK TO SCHOOL TIME!"   I always have.

Only one of my own "kids" will be going back to school this year--her senior year of college!  How can that be?!  She'll be in an apartment this year with her friends, and I'm excited for her. She's a little sad, too, because this will be her last year.  She won't miss the schoolwork, but she will miss the fun of living with her friends, late night snack runs, and walks in the woods behind the dorms. Transitions are so bittersweet.  (For kids and their moms.)

As many of you know, I'm a reading tutor.  I love to read, and I love to encourage kids to read.

A Handmade Photo-Book or Journal

I'm sharing a quick mini-scrapbook or journal idea today, that even the most uncrafty of you can make. Really!

The final size of mine was 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 (half sheets of cardstock), but you can make yours any size you like.

Brush Lettering~A Few Favorite Brush Markers

Hi everyone!

Today, I want to let you in on my newest obsession--brush lettering.  (And, maybe you'll  become obsessed too!)

Blogging These Days

I love to blog. I love it.  (Even though you all haven't seen me around here as much as I'd like to be lately. Pesky old life gets in the way.)

Have you noticed, though, that blogs have lost some of the personality and flavor they used to have?  I started my first real blog in 2007. (Want to see it?  A Studio in My Basement   Kind of raw, wouldn't you say? ha!) Not too many people were really reading that blog, but it was fun. Some of the navigation buttons don't even work, because I didn't know how to fix such things back then!
