real encouragement for real homeschooling moms

fun contest during the kathie kordenbrock podcasts


I have recently discovered how much I love There is always the perfect item to find when you need a gift or when you want to add some spice to your decorating and support someone’s handmade artwork in the process.

A few weeks ago I found just the lovely pictures I had been looking for to hang in my kitchen in Geninne’s lovely shop and she has graciously given me two watercolor prints to give away.  So I am hosting a contest!  If you leave a comment in one of the podcast entries featuring Kathie Kordenbrock, I will add your name to a drawing to win one of Geninne’s limited edition prints. Look for Kathie’s first podcast to be uploaded in the next day or two! And invite your friends to listen, too.

Karen, I am in big trouble! I wasn’t familiar with until now. I love Geninne’s paintings, and I just spent an hour browsing the rest of Good thing Mother’s Day is coming …

Oh, Light, every day there is something new! As someone who really enjoys “upcycling” or “repurposing” as they call it, Etsy is a never-ending source of ideas.

I found Geninne’s work one day when her site was featured on the homepage of Etsy. I am going through my “bird phase” right now and her pictures were just so happy and all the colors I love. Be sure you comment on one of the Kathie Kordenbrock podcasts so your name can go in the drawing!

My daughter, Mollie, introduced me to Etsy so I think I ought to make a shameless plug here for her shop.

She specializes in things made from recycled paper. The “wordy butterfly” mobile hangs from the light over our dining room table and I love it. Mine was made from pages from a vintage French dictionary! She has been so successful at this venture that my husband teases her that instead of sending her to college, we should have just gotten her a really nice pair of scissors! 🙂
