Guest Judges of the Week{Ahna and Brooke}-Podcast

Welcome back to Back to School Week. This week we will have 2 guest judges. One is a former teacher and I thought it was only fitting to feature a someone who not only craft blogs but was once a teacher. Back to school is a great reminder that we should be showing our appreciation to all teachers.

First up, we have Brooke from Design Stash Blog.

Brooke has a fabulous blog that features crafts, decorating tips and a little bit about her everyday life. This blog is a must read and I know you will be inspired by her projects.

Since it is Back to School Week, I wanted to feature some of her back to school projects. I love this idea of organizing your child’s school work that they bring home. Some of it, you throw away but there are some you want to keep so you can journal and remember their shool year. This is a great way to do that.

Organizing kids schoolwork

She gives a step by step tutorial and  great tips!

Next up, meet Ahna a former Middle School Language Arts teacher. Now, she is a stay at home mom and craft blogger.

Her blog home is Easier Than I Thought.

She features craft projects for the kids, recipes and home decor. I love this wreath she recently made.

You can see the tutorial here.

I would love to have this on my door all year round!

I love her recipes too. Mr. CSI makes a great Focaccia so I know my family would love this Focaccia Pizza.  

I wanted to talk to Ahna about going back to school. Since she was a former teacher I knew she had some great tips for a successful school year. She did and you can hear my interview with her on this week’s CSI Confidential Podcast.

Be sure to head on over and check out, Design Stash Blog and Easier Than I Thought, for so many great projects and inspiration.

You will love both of them!

I am so happy to have Ahna and Brooke join us this week.
