Giveaway: $100 Gift Certificate from Olliegraphic

This giveaway has ended. Check back on Saturday, December 4 for the winner!

Welcome to Simple Living Media’s Home for the Holidays! We’ve got 25 giveaways across the entire network this week to give you plenty of chances to win a great gift, just in time for the holidays.

Today I’m giving away a $100 gift certificate to Olliegraphic.

Olliegraphic specializes in adorable printables, art prints, plates + bowls, growth charts and other children’s items, all customized to look like your little one!

Meg Bartholomy, owner and illustrator of Olliegraphic, sent me three personalized plates for my kids, and I am absolutely smitten with them!

I was able to use the easy online ordering system to customize my plates, and soon after received an emailed proof of what the design would look like. Meg even went the extra mile to alter the skin tones of my kids’ faces and to make Trishna’s glasses pink–just like the ones she wears each day.

Plates are 10 inches in diameter (perfect for serving a big lunch or dinner!), dishwasher safe, and BPA-free. Your children will love these like mine do.

Simplifying our Homeschool by Using a Curriculum

Written by contributor Heather Bruggeman of Beauty That Moves

Deciding to use a formal curriculum isn’t always a popular choice.

Admittedly, I felt like I was cheating a little bit. But I’m going to be honest and tell you, I’ve added hours to my day by handing over the task of coordinating learning materials for my middle school daughter to somebody else.

Dare I say… to the experts.

I’m inspired by the homeschool parents who plan dreamy, fresh, quality experiences day after day for their children, all in the name of learning.  A part of me wishes I could do the same, but my daughter actually prefers a more predictable approach.

As homeschoolers, fostering individual learning styles is what we strive for. It’s one of our greatest opportunities. For us, curriculum it is!

The simplicity has grown on me.

There was a time when I created most of our plans and lessons. We homeschooled once before, during her fourth grade year. At the time, I purchased math curriculum only. The remainder of our learning was created by me, my girl, or the world before us.

It worked for us then, but it was fourth grade.
