Your post will be shown over at The Natural Homeschool too where my friend Tanya and I will individually pick features each week. Be sure to check out what she's featuring from last week's party. We've teamed up to bring you an even bigger and better party!

Grab a button, link up, visit others, and be sure to leave some comment love on each other's posts!  That same little birdie told me that we all love comments!

I started out selling hand-painted wood signs and I have since added a few other items. It has been a blessing to our family, especially now since we are adding a third child due to arrive in March!
