Spring Cleaning!!

coah_blog_new.jpg

Good morning readers! You may have noticed a slight…okay drastic…change over here at the Confessions website! I don’t know about you, but I always get a hankering for some good old fashioned spring cleaning this time of year. And my blog is no different! I’ve been wanting to update it for a while now, but with the blog, store, and new community it’s a little more complicated to make everything look seamless. So I had to wait on the help of my husband. Who by the way has been working his little tail off for me lately! With the new community, book release, blog updates, and some other surprises we have coming your way he’s been swamped. But being the awesome guy he is, he carved out some time to help me put up a new fresh look for my blog, and I love it! I wanted it to go along with my homeschooling 101 book cover because I thought it was so fresh and clean looking, so that’s what we did! So without further ado, let me introduce to you the new and improved Confessions of a … [Read more...]

Visit me on Instagram!

Hi everyone! I’m excited to announce that I’ve finally caught up with the Instagram train and decided to hop on! For a long time I just didn’t have time to figure out another social media outlet, but I think I’ve mostly figured it out and am having lots of fun over there! Blogging takes some time, but Instagram is fast! And I can easily put up quick pics on Instagram and it will even post to my Facebook and Twitter as well, so that makes it really nice and easy for me to use! I’ve been posting pretty much daily, and that includes homeschooling pics, quilting pics, crafts, food, and whatever else we’re doing that seems interesting at the moment! That means you get to see a little more into our lives and not just what I deem worthy of an actual blog post ;o)   For example my Instagram followers were the first ones to know that I got a bee in my bonnet and decided to rearrange our homeschool room! And yes, I do have a new tour video coming up … [Read more...]
