    Tori, Great ideas for Mom’s with little ones. I however am a big fan whose youngest girl is a freshman and UCLA. What crafting boards do you recommend for us? I sew, quilt, scrapbook, rubber stamp, make cards, I crochet, I do quilling, I embroider, I do counted cross stitch. If It’s crafty I have done it. I also refinish furniture if I find a piece I like. I am truly a craft addict. I hoard craft supplies. It drives my husband of 30 years nuts. Thanks for the help and all your inspiration crafty and personal.

    P.S. I love all your books. They are on my Kindle Fire HDX. Thanks for having such a wonderful website. I am sure you put so much time into searching for ideas and approving content. I appreciate all your hard work.

    P.S.S. My kids made up the email of moms2cool when email was very , very new. I was lucky that I was able to keep it every time we changed internet providers. They spent hours trying all different combinations of things as they thought I was the best mom ever and I was so cool. I will cherish it forever and I will never change it. Didn’t want you to think I had an over inflated ego, LOL
