Chex Mix

Well the Creative Girls Holiday Gift Guides have been pretty popular from the reports I’m getting from the participants!  Thank you!!!  I’ve got 5 to choose from for great gift ideas.  The latest one was this past weekend.

December is one of the most hectic months for families.  Even if you only have one child like myself, it can still get crazy with meal planning, parties, gifts etc….

Confessions of a Homeschooler

My feature today is another Super Woman.  She’s got 4 children and she homeschools!   She has to be organized. And she makes a mean Chex Mix.

She keeps those kids busy with all kind of things.  Her site is a mecca for home school curriculum ideas and more.   She has a lot of tabs with drop down menus to keep you busy for a bit.  You’ll be throwing Fly Lady aside after visiting Confessions of a HomeSchooler.

Meal Planner

I know it’s hard to see, but you can download it from her site.  I’ve done this once in my life and I feel like I should frame it.  More ways to help you with quick gift ideas.

Chex Mix – Muddie Buddies

Her tutorials are easy to follow with photos and instructions.How about one for the kids?  It’s all about making it fun.

Edible Snowballs.

Need more ideas?

How about making Monogrammed Ornaments, Sugar Cone Tree’s or Sweet Tortilla Snowflakes?  I love her Minivan polar express she learned about from another blogger.  She’s decided to make it an event in her house.

If you’re having a hard time getting in the holiday spirit, or you’re feeling frantic already……head on over.  Now remember…….YOU get to surprise her and let her know she’s featured today.  Please leave her a sweet comment!

Leaving a comment on TCB enters you in my Lisa Leonard Monthly drawing.

Just so I don’t feel left out, leave me one too and I’ll enter you into the December drawing for a Lisa Leonard necklace.

    Love the Muddy Buddies. We always called it Puppy Chow. Either way – it is delicious. As a former Homeschool mom I must agree that you have to be organized – no matter how many children you have. I think it is wonderful that she is sharing her wealth of information with the blogging world to help other homeschool mother’s through the journey.

    She’s got a wonderful blog! Thanks for sending us there. I, too, am a homeschooling mom who loves photography & graphic design, so I am loving spending time on her blog with all the wonderful resources. It’s such an inspiration!
