Guest Post - Jennie Withers - Bullying (Part 1 in a 3 part Series)

Bullying - it can be a delicate topic to talk about. When an incident happens it leaves people questioning: Was I bullied? Was my child bullied?  Am I being too sensitive? Sometimes teens don't want to admit they have been bullied by a boss, parent, teacher, friend, or stranger. It can also be difficult to find out your child or family member is the bully. 
I was recently invited to read Hey, Back Off!  Written by Jennie Withers with her mother, Phyllis Hendrickson M. Ed. This is a topic I have discussed before on this blog. Jennie has been so kind and has contributed some material for my blog posts. So this is part one, where Jennie shares a story. In part two, I will discuss her book. In part three Jennie shares some hints for parents. You can find Jennie Withers online at her web page.

Darwin's Children by Natasha Larry


It's funny how things happen. I have seen Natasha online for quite some time. You know how you seem to interact with authors and book bloggers. One day Natasha posted a link for a freebie of her book on a book blogging site. So I signed up, because the teaser was interesting and the title really appealed to me. 

Guest Post: How To Look Stylish With Personalised T-Shirts

When t-shirts first became a major feature of the culture, they were actually seen as a part of undress by the older generation. But over time, the t-shirt has become a more than accepted and almost essential element to casual wear. T-shirts generally carry the reputation of being a casual item, and it can be difficult to look stylish and put together when wearing them. Here are some simple pointers to make your special personalised t shirts a more fashionable piece of your wardrobe.

Spotlight on Vicki Lorraine

I want to share a little secret with my Australian readers. I have discovered a source of home decors that I am really happy to share.
The Butcher (my hubby) has been complaining about our oven gloves. I was trying to source some that he would be happy with, but would suit my taste as well.
I ordered some new oven gloves and a pot holder from Vicki Lorraine and she helped me choose a fabric that I was really pleased with, and she made the gloves to order.
We've had a little time to try them out and we've been really pleased. They are light weight and not bulky, but offer great heat protection.
