Moms Monday: I know you are but what am I?

First, I want to thank everyone for reading, commenting on, following, and supporting this blog! It really means a lot to me and it has boosted my confidence in my writing and ability to network with others. I have learned so much just by interacting with you all here.

Have you read the about page here on the blog? If you’ve ever wondered who is the person writing this stuff? you can find some answers there, but I’ll also provide some answers here.

Me – Elise

You may have discovered this already, but I’m not a mom. Is that shocking? I hope not. I guess I should be flattered if you are shocked. You see I’m just shy of 20 and began writing this blog not because I think I’m some sort of parenting expert, but due to my collaboration with wallinspired.

Wallinspired has a great business going on Etsy and if you run a small, but growing business yourself, you can understand that managing every aspect of your business can be difficult, very difficult. So that’s where I come in. I also run an Etsy shop, Pieces of Elise’s (because my name is Elise – hi there!), and even though my shop is by no means flourishing just yet, I have learned a lot about marketing, social networking, and E-Commerce through the research I’ve done over the past 2 years.

I also write on Squidoo, Yahoo! Voices, and just started my own blog. Craig with wallinspired approached me to promote their shop through this blog, social networks, and elsewhere. If you’ve visited wallinspired‘s shop on Etsy, you probably noticed that their vinyl wall decals are for kids, tweens, and teens. So I’ve really focused my efforts on this blog to reach you, the parents of the kids, tweens, and teens, as well as anyone else who is interested.

I’d like to think that writing for this blog has been going pretty well and that you all are enjoying your time spent here. Would you like to give some feedback?

Click here to take survey and you will be added to a drawing where 1 winner will be chosen. The winner has the choice of getting a free advertising spot on the blog (a 150 x 150 image linking to their blog or website on the right over there –>),  a chance to write a guest blog post here on the wallinspired blog about a topic of their choice, or a free handmade item from my own Etsy shop Pieces of Elise’s. So please take the survey for a chance to win!!!

Tuesday Newsday: Keeping Track of Your Kids

Hi everyone!

I’d like to get your thoughts on this article:

Microchipped school uniforms notify parents when kids skip school | Technology News Blog – Yahoo! News.

This Brazilian private school has embedded microchips in the school uniforms to alert parents of when their children enter school grounds or are more than 20 minutes late via text message.

The school implemented this technology after parents were so surprised that their kids had so many tardies.

What do you think of this method?

Sunday Funday – 3 Easy Ways to Get Ready for Baby

Are you expecting? (If you are please share the good news in the comment section 🙂 )

If you are, and you have some free time this Sunday, here are some things you can do to get ready for baby.

1. Design Custom Bedding for the Nursery

I love customizing things. So I got excited when I saw a post on Cool Mom Picks about Nursery Designer by Carousel Designs. It allows you to design your own baby bedding and preview it in front of the wall color of your nursery.

Warning: This may be addicting and you may spend your whole Sunday designing bedding if you’re not careful 😛

2. Set Up a Baby Registry

Have you set up a baby registry yet? If not, here’s a forum that can help you decide on the best place to go. It shows what othermoms are saying about the best places to get a registry.

If you already know where you want to go, jump in the car, bring your bestie, or your husband, or both, and start making that list! It’s fun to shop, especially when you don’t have to be the one to pay!

3. Get your Baby Scrapbook / Photo Album Ready

Scrapbooking 101 recommends that you don’t wait until after the baby arrives to start the scrapbook.

One mom was quoted as saying,

“The first double-page spread of my daughter’s baby book records the thoughts my husband and I had in anticipation of her arrival…how excited and nervous we were to become parents for the first time.”

You can even start tracking your changing shape, the site says, wearing the same outfit in each photo like a time lapse video.

Have you tried any of these tips? Or do you plan to? Please share in the comment section!

Featured items: kids tree branch decal from wallinspired, kanga boo shopping cart attachment from TheKangaBoo, and peel and stick scrapbook album frame from APregnancyStory.

Moms Monday- Nursery Room Projects – Baby Tips

Hey everyone!

I hope you’re having a good start to the work week.

While browsing some articles online I found the article at the link below and I thought it would be helpful for new moms making a nursery for the little arrivals they’re expecting.

There are some great safety tips and tips for moms who may be working with a small space or budget. Check it out and let me know if it’s helpful to you.

Nursery Room Projects – Baby Tips.

Nursery from Expecting Mom

I made this collection thinking of an expecting mom with a nursery all set up for her little girl on the way.

She’s got the kids initial monogram name decal from wallinspired, a cute bermuda owls blanket from NewEnglandGifts, and a Chocolate plush (the dragon fly on the shelf)  from stephanimals, along with lots of other great goodies. It pays to be prepared!

Friday Faves

Friday Faves

Hey everyone! Are you enjoying your Friday? On Fridays I like to feature some of the favorited items from wallinspired in a neat collection.

In the collection above I featured great items for a nursery. As always there are cute Etsy picks included. The comfy blue chair is a nursery slip cover from handmade by HandmadeByStella. The pillow cover – chocolate from JillianReneDecor complements it perfectly. Below the changing table is a Monkeytar stuffed animal – he’s a monkey with a keytar (keyboard/ guitar!) from aminalz. On the wall there is a tree with a tree branch set monkey vinyl decal from wallinspired which is actually on sale!
