Here are the Featured posts from last week!


Dorothy chose How I Divide My Revenue from Selling On Etsy + FREE Printable from Mama’s Got It Together. “It’s my favorite post for a couple reasons. One reason is obvious–it’s about Etsy and I just love “All Things Etsy” 😉 Another reason though is because it is very informative about how to handle the financial details of an Etsy shop…something that I really need to start keeping track of. I’ve always just sort of gone with it…and hoped I was making a profit. With her free printable, I’ll be able to keep better track of where my Etsy income goes. It has also inspired me to make some free printables to offer my blog readers!”


Tina chose DIY Lovely Lace Pumpkin from Living Frugal with Erika. “A simple,elegant and affordable DIY for Halloween. I love lace!!”


Rhonda chose Fall Pumpkin Table Centerpiece from Craving Some Creativity. “Fall is my favorite time of year, and I’m always looking for decorating ideas. This would be a great center piece from now through Thanksgiving. Beautiful.”


Meghan chose I Quit from Living in Mommywood. “I love this post about the writer’s daughter. I think all too much we settle for things in life. Her daughter has so much courage, and a strong belief in herself, to know what she wants to do in life. She doesn’t settle for a job just to have a job. She doesn’t want to just work to live. She is someone who wants to be happy, challenged and love what she does. And thank you to mom for raising such a wonderful adult.”


Elina chose Shabby Chic Fall Wreath Tutorial from The Painted Hinge. “This was such a pretty wreath. I loved how she explained every step of the process and showed before and after pics of the frame she used to create the wreath. I loved the chicken wire she added to it, the burlap elements and the chalkboard squares. This was a great Fall project!!”


Bernadyn chose I am a Ninja Mum by Night from Mum-bo-jumbo.com. “I thought this post was so entertaining to read and something many parents can relate to. I know I can since this is what I go through right now when I’m putting my little girl to bed. Many of us moms do become ninjas by night, sneaking around so we don’t wake up the kids!”


Sonya chose Making a Pie — a Story of Independence from Mommy Crusader and her Knights and Ladies. “It’s the story of a mom who realizes her child is growing up and transitioning from a fairly dependent child to one that is capable of being more independent. It is a moment that we will all experience as parents.”


Silvie chose Berry Kale Smoothie Recipe from Hairspray and High Heels. “I chose this past because I love smoothies and I have started trying to incorporate kale into the smoothies I make. This smoothie really hit the spot. It was absolutely delicious!”

Tenns chose Baby Essentials ~ Part 1 {Guest Post} from Mummy Goes Mad. “This is an excellent roundup of baby essentials. I think any expectant mother would find this list extremely useful and helpful. Even as someone who has an older baby, the list is still very relevant to me.”


Kelly chose Homemade Lemon Sugar Scrub from Coupons and Freebies Mom. “I love making my own body scrubs. They feel indulgent, but are very frugal to make.”


Stacey chose Homemade Bisquick Recipe from This Mama Loves. “One of my favorite things to eat as a kid was bisquick dumplings with a roast and carrots! As a matter of fact that was the meal that I requested the most for special occasions! LOL! My mom would also make the bisquick drop biscuits quite often with fried chicken, sausage gravy, eggs or for just about any other kind of meal, and of course, one can’t forget the bisquick pancakes! Sadly, for my family, bisquick is very expensive and goes very quickly, so this would be an amazing time and money saver for a large family! Thank you so much for sharing!”

PeanutButter2-682x1024Cathy chose How to Make Homemade Peanut Butter from Saving with Shellie. “Our family loves peanut butter and we eat tons of it! I never thought of making my own, and not only does Shellie give a great recipe for homemade peanut butter but she adds these amazing variations for different types! I pinned this amazing recipe and I am looking forward to making some!”


Natasha chose 25 ways to get your child’s attention from Just a Touch of Crazy. “This post is the truth! I could call my son several times, and either he hears me and ignores me or he really doesn’t hear me. If I even remotely try to do something for myself or the phone rings, then there he is right in my face seeking attention. I couldn’t have explained it any better myself! Great post! :)”


The post with the most clicks is Transitioning your Summer Clothes into all 4 Seasons from No Small Life.
