Welcome to my new readers and to those of you returning to this space!┬áIt’s a pleasure to have you here and I’m happy to share some of the things that I have found lovely and worthwhile lately. You might notice that a central theme in my life and likes lately is organizing and decluttering. I guess the spring cleaning bug hit me better late than never (or, at least reading about it did).

Introducing the Postcard: a monthly newsletter from Simple Kids

SimpleKids.net monthly newsletter sign upHello friends! Just hopping on here really quickly to share with you something new. In fact, in all of my years of blogging (closing in on a decade now, wow) I’ve never done this before: start a newsletter.

That’s right, Simple Kids is going to have it’s very own newsletter!

My vision is a monthly letter from me with inspiration for simple living and parenting, with super yet simple kids crafts, encouragement, interviews, and content that you won’t find here on the blog. I want this to be an enrichment, something extra – a love note of sorts, from me to you as we care for our kids and learn and grow as parents.

I’m excited because it reminds me of my zine making days – something homemade from me to you every month, only digital instead of drawn with a sharpie and xeroxed.

The first issue is going out May 1st and after that it should be hitting your email mailboxes once a month or so.

If you’d like to sign up, and I’d sure appreciate it if you would, you can do so here:
