Perry's Post - Mother Day Card


A few weeks ago Perry, my 11 year old son, came and asked if he could do a guest post on my blog.  I laughed at first...until I realized he was serious.  He already had an idea ready to go.  He came up with the idea, made the craft, and wrote the post himself.  In addition he took all the pictures and edited them himself.  I couldn't be prouder of him right now!  He sure made this mom's day for sure!
Please be sure to leave him lots of comments to let him know how he did!  :) 

P.S.  I still have a few opening for Guest Posts for this summer!  All submissions are due by June 1st.  You can email me for more details.

    1. I agree! This was a huge surprise for me. He isn't much of a reader...or a writer for that matter, so the fact that he wanted to do this blew me away! It was fun watching his creative process! :)
