  1. Your time and talent is appreciated by all of us. I think it's great for you to want to help support your family with these resources for the rest of us. Keep it up!! I wouldn't have started homeschooling my 4yo without your help and that would have never led me to want to bring all of my kiddos home, so thank you! I'd be more than willing to pay money for that all over again.

  2. Jeremiah 22:13 Woe unto him that buildeth his house by unrighteousness, and his chambers by wrong; that useth his neighbour's service without wages, and giveth him not for his work;I have enjoyed Erica's free printables for a long time and she has saved me so much money and time and has made our school curriculum better! It is the least I can do to pay her a small sum in exchange for her products. Aren't all of her adorable products worth much more than $10? God says to pay a person what their service is worth/ to be fair to the seller. So, Erica, we actually owe you a ton more! 🙂

  3. Hi, I often come here and love your blog. I think that you offer plenty of free things and there is nothing wrong with selling a few of them. If everything was free in this world then I could find fault with someone trying to sell something…. I don't expect to go buy groceries and not to pay for them, so I do not blame someone trying to make some money by selling their work. The felt food is absolutely beautiful and the activities definitely more than worth their price.Still I respect "anonymous" comment. She/he has a right to have his/her opinion…and I am sure that there is a reason she/he feels this way. I just wish that they had signed their name/said who they are. If we believe something we need to be open about it…otherwise it seems like we are ashamed of our views.

  4. Erica, I am so thankful that you are providing this ministry. My oldest walked by and said, "mom you really like that blog don't you. It's always up." Your daily comments and projects have been an encouragment to me. I have enjoyed seeing what your family is up too. Most of the time I don't use your ideas, my first "set" is older. But Ben and Hannah are going to benefit greatly from your labor of love next year. Please do not allow flipant remarks of others discourage you. You are so helpful and encouraging in ways that you do not know. This blog has been a ministry to me and my family, so thank you.With the new baby coming, do you think my oldest would be able to do this project? She just turned 10. This might be really fun for her and her younger sister and brother would have so much fun playing with it.

  5. I am soo inspired by your blog. You help keep me accountable 🙂 I also linked to your blog, if you don't mind, at my new blog. Your children are sooo blessed by your committment to the Lord and to your family. You are doing a wonderful job!

  6. Your patriotic picnic basket is adorable! I just know that Eliana wold love that. I still haven't even tried the pizza one I wanted to do. I really, really want to learn to do this! Maybe this summer when the kids are on break (we are taking a break this summer!). Thanks so much for all you do, Erica! And many blessings to you on your new Etsy shop!
