Jewelry Giveaway!

Today one of my favorite blogs, Silly Eagle Books, is hosting a jewelry giveaway from my Etsy shop. Check out Vanessa's blog for details on how to win this Love Letters Bracelet.

Like Vanessa, I have also loved books my entire life. I loved reading stories aloud to my children when they were younger. It was fun to give the character's their own unique voice and that quality time together was always so special. Even as they grow older (9 & 17) we still share a love of children's literature and hope to collaborate on a children's book together someday. One of our old favorites that was passed down from older to younger sister is Pete's a Pizza (I actually still get requests for this one) by William Steig.

Pre-school Pete can't go outside because it's raining so his dad "makes him into a pizza." It was so much fun to make them into a pizza at the same time and then run around the house trying to catch and "eat" them!

Silly Eagle Books is a great blog for moms with book reviews, activity ideas and more! Check it out!

The Help

The long awaited screen version of The Help opened in theaters yesterday. I recently read the book and couldn't put it down. I have been really looking forward to this movie, so I went to the first matinee showing available! I was not disappointed. I loved watching the characters from one of my new favorite books come to life. It's a beautiful, heartwarming story of having the courage to make a change. The message is incredibly powerful; the acting superb. I predict costume designer Sharen Davis, who has previously been nominated for 2 academy awards (Ray, Dreamgirls) will definitely be in the running for the Oscar again. I hope she wins this time. The costumes were stunning. See the movie, it was wonderful; but don't let it stop you from reading the book. It is destined to become a classic.
