Welcome to my Advertiser Media Kit!

(modified February 2014)

About Me: My name is Shara and I’m the wife of one and mother to two little girls (2 and 5), and a little boy due in May!  Before my blogging days, I was a special education teacher and then a wedding planner.   And my passions in blogging draw from that….I love home design and party planning, and I do a ton of hands on activities with my kids.  I’m not much of a chef, but I can follow just about any recipe and love trying new foods and products with my family.  Although I don’t often blog about my faith as a Christian, my life is based around Jesus, so everything I do comes from Him.  Most of my posts are recipes, crafts and activities for my family, with some life posts scattered in between, so my readers can get to know me!  I started blogging as a way of sharing photos and family updates with extended family and friends, and got more into the craftiness and DIY as I went along.  Want to know more about me and see some pictures?

Past Collaborators:  I have been fortunate enough to partner with some terrific companies over the past two years.  I have had a variety of partnerships from paid advertisers, barter relationships, product reviews, and giveaways.  Some of the companies I’ve worked with are:
