Amazing website - Creating A Childhood

As i have spent many hours at night blog hopping and reading all about each of you, i have found a common thread... Quilting/Home Crafts/Creating things and our most important job....Creating our Families.
In our profiles many of us are mums, who juggle the jobs of raising children, managing a family, cooking, cleaning, some of us working as well, and we all try our best to squeeze in a little Craft time...sewing or making something for our own sanity and head space. With this in mind, Im excited to tell you about an Amazing site...
http://creatingachildhood.com/
This site was developed by Lisa Rigby, a wonderful mother of 9 . Her passion is her family and the childhood shes creating.... On her site she wrote....

"This is a collection of my favourite mother stuff gathered from other mothers, books, lessons and 27 years of 24/7 experiences. I love the mother job. I hope something here helps you as you create a beautiful childhood..."

Her site is 1 year old this month! She has thousands of followers and subscribers!! I chose a few topics...


.......but there are soo many more. They are all fantastic and you find yourself looking at the computer nodding.. 

About Lisa,

"I have a wonderful husband. We wanted a large family, and because of the example of my mother, the teachings of our church (the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints), and boundless energy, I felt confident we could do it. I found out it was much harder and much better than I expected.
Harder- long months of nausea, scared stiff of delivery each time, an astonishing amount of housework (I was not a worker), an a selfish, impatient nature- mine!
Better- the miracle of making a new person, the love and beauty of a baby, the laughter of a child, the frequent intensely sweet and precious moments that you don't have time to write down because you are too busy living them.
We had 4 boys first, then 4 girls and a little boy at the end.
They are our best friends, our greatest happiness, our biggest challenge and our treasure. And still an astonishing amount of work.
The oldest 4 boys have all spent 2 years doing humanitarian service in countries less fortunate than Australia, as missionaries for our church. 3 are married, and we currently have 6 children at home-2 university students,
2 teenagers and 2 primary school children.
It's like a party every day whether you want one or not."

She also asks Mothers to write a profile on their own Mothering Experiences... I was lucky enough to be able to write mine here. Her site is amazing...

You are going to LOVE it!! xx
