My recommendations this week:
I have been looking forward to this new historical fiction release for months!
If you have mystery/suspense lovers in your home (ages 10 and up) you must check out Blue Birds, which delves into one of the greatest unsolved historical mysteries out there — the lost colony of Roanoke.
I recently finished The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, and was surprised to see that it’s currently #3 in all books on Amazon! I love the author’s focus on keeping only the things that “spark joy” in our lives.
Do you want your littles to recognize the masters? Check out these clever first board books featuring classical artists!
Featured sponsors this week:
My monthly Stitch Fix arrived yesterday–always a fun event for someone like me who hates traditional clothes shopping in stores!
Thinking of giving Stitch Fix a try? It might help to know that they’ve just added maternity wear AND petite sizes to their repertoire–so you can add your due date to your profile if you already have one, or enter it when you create a profile–yay!
Do you consider “creativity” one of the defining characteristics of your family and homeschool?
Then you absolutely must check out Crafting Connections for practical DIY’s, inspired support, and gorgeous mini-magazines available for download. Try two of them for FREE!
