Grow Your Blog Day!


Today is Grow Your Blog Day!  Super awesome Vicki, over at 2 Bags Full, is our hostess for this fabulous blog hop.  Thanks Vicki!!!  Her idea was to have a big "Meet and Greet" for fellow bloggers so we could get a chance to find out about each other's blogs.
One of the suggestions Vicki gave to all of us was to take a moment to introduce ourselves, so here goes. :)  I'm a part-time Reading Specialist who works with Kindergarten and first grade students in MA.  It's a pretty great gig 'cause I get to help kiddos learn to read and, hopefully, also love to read. :)  When I'm not teaching kiddos how to read, I'm teaching adults papercrafting at my favorite store Ink About It and creating cards, tags, and scrapbook albums.
In prepping for Valentine's Day I've begun working on valentines for kids and adults.  The teachers and staff celebrate Curious Cupid (think Secret Santa valentine-style).  So it is a pretty big deal to have mini goodies ready for the big day!
I live in MA with my amazing husband (anyone who can deal with me day in and day out and still smile has to be amazing), our Corgi, Cad, (read about his whole ordeal here) and our Tabby, Amy, with the softest fur on the planet!  DH and I have been married for 11 years, although really we've been together for something like 18 years.
Well I've been rambling on!  I'll stop here so you can roam around my blog and visit all the other blogs. ;)  If you leave a comment below, you'll be entered to win your own set of 11 different cards (like the listing here).  If you are a follower mention that too and I'll enter your name again!  If you "like" my Etsy store on Facebook (look under that Actions section), let me know in the comments and that will get your name entered again too!  So you've got 3 different chances to win. :)  Oh and I'll draw a name on Groundhog Day! :) (That's Feb 2nd)

Happy Saturday!

  16. Hello Moriah, it is so nice to meet you! I love that you are a reading specialist helping little ones with their reading problems! Reading is the key to everything that follows, or at least I feel that way (I'm an ex-academic librarian so knowledge/education is at my epicenter):D I am on the Grow Your Blog party hop so I will come back for a proper visit after the party ends but I am looking forward to future visits. Hey, I live in New Hampshire so we aren't too far apart!
    Happy blog partying...
    Hugs,
