Welcome to Our Guest Host, Stephanie!

Meet Stephanie from Casa Watkins, our Guest Host!


Hola Amigos!  Stephanie Watkins here! I am the Dominicana behind Casa Watkins.  Before I became a wife and mom, I was first a big time crafter.  I am so excited to share my DIY crafts and decor with you all.  My project gallery page has all my projects since Casa Watkins began.  Adivina Que (Guess what)?  Casa Watkins is not only a place for DIY projects and decor, but also a resource for bilingual homeschooling parents.  Inparting my Latin heritage and Spanish language to my children is very important.  Doing so is a bit of a struggle when you’re the only one who speaks Spanish in your home.  It’s even harder when you can’t find teaching materials for toddlers in Spanish and English.  So, I started making some of my own.  Check them out on my Spanish Tot school page.

Back to School Features!

Back to school is just around the corner and many of us are already looking for ways to prepare for the start of the school year. Here are a few posts shared at last week’s party that will help you save money, be more organized, make memories, and/or treat your fellow moms!

Back to School Fun!



My Featured Picks!

Here’s a couple shares from last week that I absolutely LOVE!  Make sure you visit the other hosts too to see their featured picks….it might be you! :)

These colorful yard dice by Houseful of Handmade are so fun!  I’m sure the kiddos would have a great time playing Yahtzee or any other game….even one made up like Kati did with her kids!  These are a nice DIY idea to create some fun summer memories for the whole family. {PIN IT!}



I was also blown away by these Stars and Stripes Corn Hole Boards from Alayna’s Creations!  I know just about every outdoor gathering we go to has at least one set of corn hole boards, and it’s one of my husband’s favorite activities….and he’s actually quite good at it!  I love the patriotic-but-not-too-in-your-face stars and stripes theme as well as the staining technique that was used here….they’re perfect for summer! {PIN IT!}

Hi, Christine ~ I've been having an off week, because we took our youngest daughter to camp on Sunday (without her cell phone). I won't talk to her or see her until Friday! Boo-hoo! But discovering that my Home Office Reveal was a popular post last week helped to turn my frown upside down! :0) Thank you! And thanks for hosting each week! I love linking up each week! Have a great day!

Wow, must be one sad momma without your daughter all week! But I can see how having one of the most popular posts would bring a smile to your face! :) And it's very deserving too....your office reveal was AMAZING!!!
