Care Bears: Welcome to Care-a-Lot


  As a mom, I get to listen to a LOT of cartoons but never really watch them. I am in and out, picking up, cleaning up, bringing laundry through etc... I am sure many of us function this way.  The Poo loves to watch My Little Pony Friendship is Magic on The Hub. I had My Little ponies when I was growing up so if I can I try to watch it with her sometimes. The memories of my childhood come rushing in and I am filled with nostalgia! Well that is about to kick into full throttle. The Hub has a new show starting June 2nd......wait for it........wait for it.......Care Bears: Welcome to Care-a-Lot! YES!!! The Care Bears are coming back....wooohoooo!!! SERIES PREMIERE: THIS SATURDAY at 8am ET /5am PT. Go check out the website for information on all of the bears and a clip of the show! They also have wallpaper for your computer that is free to download.The Poo has some of the movies because I bought them but now she will be able to watch them on the T.V.!  Now she loves the Care Bears as most of us did growing up. I have even found her a few Care Bear stuffies to cuddle with.   So now we will be able to cuddle in the recliner and watch Care Bears: Welcome to Care-a-Lot together and have our special time! We were lucky enough to get a sneak peek at the first episode before it airs and let me tell you we LOVED it! The animation is wonderfully detailed to the point you can see their fur move with them. The story line is great and teaches them about caring for others as Care Bears always has. It is more updated than the older Care Bears movies but just as entertaining. We watched it 2 times in a row and the Poo can hardly wait to get to watch it again, this time on the television. I don't want to give away what this episode is about so I won't say more than preprogram your T.V. so you don't miss it!I have a coloring page and some poster printables free from The Hub for you and your little ones. I hope you all enjoy!Disclaimer: This is a review. I was given a link to preview the first episode for review purposes. All opinions are my own and not influenced by the advertising company.[...]

Sew exciting!


I love to make things and craft but I especially love to sew. Now I am not a seamstress by any means. I can barely cut a pattern most of the time, but I enjoy the trying and the sense of accomplishment when I finish. Sometimes it is difficult for me to get things done since I have never really been taught to sew. You will understand why I was soooo very excited to find this video. Suzanne McNeill of Design Originals 123 has shown me a very easy way to make a quilt. It is easy to follow, quick to finish and the design possibilities are endless! Whether you are an accomplished seamstress or a beginner, these techniques are easy to learn and create a beautiful finished product!

I would recommend her products whole heartedly and have really enjoyed making gifts for family and friends using her techniques.

Tutu much love


As  many of you know, my little Poo is a princess. She loves to dress up an wear ballgowns, tiaras and even tutus! We saw some beautiful tutus that she really wanted but they were asking $40.00 dollars! I nearly fainted so I told her we would go home and make one. I am semi crafty and figured it out pretty quick but I wanted to share with all of you. Here is a wonderful video uploaded by Tulle Talk that is done by Mya's closet and Canada Tulle. It does a good job and explains everything! I sure hope you enjoy it and maybe get motivated to make one for the little princess in your life!
It took my girl and I about 45 minutes to make hers. I let her be very hands on since it was something she could do. It turned out so well we made another! She and I had a wonderful afternoon together making them and now she has princess tutus for every occasion or or no occasion, just because she can :)
