  • Thawanna - Oh wow, this will encouraged me!!! What makes me really excited was that our 7 year old read the blog as I was reading it. He’s always pulling at me when I need to get some work done.

I shared a simple & sweet last-minute Father’s Day Gift on my own small business blog today and I received several emails from clients thanking me for it. They were so appreciative that I thought I should share it with my mompreneurs over here too! All you need is a 5×7 two-opening frame, a photo […]

Very very cute! Im sure he will love it!ReplyCancel
