Motherhood Realized
An Inspiring Anthology for the Hardest Job You'll Ever Love

Power of Moms
We believe that family life is beautiful and that motherhood is a privilege. But we also believe it is often really hard to see all that beauty when we're in the midst of mothering. So often, we feel like we're spread too thin. We feel like we don't match up. Our hearts want to do more than our hands can manage. And every day, as we cycle through household duties, discipline, errands, conversations, teaching, and hundreds of unexpecteds, we're often left tired, worried, and in need of some extra inspiration and encouragement. Power of Moms is an online community of deliberate mothers. Since 2007, millions of mothers from all backgrounds who are striving to be the best they can be have gathered to our website to learn and grow together. Time and again, our posts receive comments that say something like, I am going to print this out and put it on my nightstand so I can read it again and again." We've been concerned about those nightstands . . . getting allcluttered up with paper. So we've selected dozens of our most popular posts and compiled them neatly into this book just for you.
This book isn't just a book. It's a tangible representation of a living, breathing community of mothers. Motherhood is the hardest job we'll ever love, and it's so much better when we're doing it together.

Temporary Tattoos Giveaway-US/CAN-Ends May 5/15

Have you ever thought of getting a tattoo? Do you have any tattoos now? I thought about this before and my kids kept telling me to "go for it". Well today I finally did it. I got myself a tattoo. A temporary one that is. I am too chicken to go for the real thing. I am not fond of needles of any type.
Anyhow, I received a few temporary tattoos and I chose the butterflies to put on my arm. I like the color and think it looks kind of cute. What do you think? Besides at my age I am too old to go getting the real thing. lol This is about as far as my tattoos will get. Temporary that is.
I wasn't sure where I wanted to put this but decided on my upper arm.
Joelle, the designer has many designs to choose from on her website here http://www.joellepoulos.com/shop I received the butterflies, and these others.
These are very easy to apply. You just decide where you want to put it, peel off the clear paper, press down with picture down and apply a wet cloth and hold it for 30 seconds or so. Then peel off the back paper and voila! you have a temporary tattoo. With your tattoos when you receive them, you will also get a paper showing you how to apply it and where the best places are to put them. Some areas are long lasting and some are not.
This is one good way to make your mind up if you are ready for the "real" thing and getting a tattoo. For me, I am quite happy with these.
One lucky person will win $30 worth of their choice of tattoos. So get your entries in today and you could be sporting a new tattoo real soon. Good luck.

Listful Thinking & Peoples History of the Peculiar-US Only-April 25/15 CLOSED

Recently I received two books from www.cleispress.com and www.vivaeditions.com and both of these are very interesting. The first one is all about List Making. I know I make lists for pretty well everything, groceries, to do list, meetings, it is endless what you can make a list for.
Listful Thinking: Using Lists to Be More Productive, Highly Successful and Less Stressed

Finding enough hours in the day to get everything accomplished and allow for some downtime can be a struggle, and it has only gotten harder in the past five years. It's no wonder so many of us are stressed, overextended and exhausted. The Institute of American Stress has discovered that 44% of Americans feel more stressed than they did five years ago, and 54% of all American employees feel overwhelmed, according to a study by the nonprofit Family and Work Institute.

Making lists is the easiest way to stay organized, productive and efficient. Something as simple as creating a grocery list can:

· Organize Your Thoughts
· Reduce Anxiety
· Boost Your Brain Power
· Improve Focus
· Increase Self Esteem

Author Paula Rizzo, a television and web producer from New York, has applied the tools and techniques that have made her successful at work to the art of list-making. A perfect book for spring cleaners and those looking to get organized, Listful Thinking: Using Lists to Be More Productive, Highly Successful and Less Stressed is the book that will give you your life back.

The second book is quite different but I have to say it is very interesting to read.

A People’s History of the Peculiar: A Freak Show of Facts, Random Obsessions and Astounding Truths

Did you know about Thomas Jefferson’s ax-murderer grandson?
How about the table manners and etiquette of cannibals?
Or the Alice in Wonderland syndrome?
Kooky, intriguing, and even downright bizarre, A People’s History of the Peculiar: A Freak Show of Facts, Random Obsessions and Astounding Truths by Nicholas Belardes is a collection of random truths and mind-boggling trivia you didn’t know you wanted to know. Seasoned trivia junkies and curious minds alike will love the astounding array of real-world information, from historical oddities to the world’s most mysterious nooks and crannies.

Author Nicholas Belardes, a history professor, journalist, blogger and videographer, has devoted his life to digging up explanations for the unexplainable, and now his outlandish findings are available to mystify and delight readers with hours of entertainment; but watch out, you may just become obsessed!

You will read different things in this book that you never knew about before. Once you start reading you won't want to put this book down.

One person will win both of these books by entering this giveaway. Sorry Canada its open to US only.
