Ultimate Blog Party 2013 #UBP13 – Come Join In!

Ultimate Blog Party 2013

Welcome to Working Mommy Journal!

This will be my first time joining the annual Ultimate Blog Party hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom and I am very excited for this event!

I want to start off by telling you a little bit about myself and what I love!

My name is Carla. I have two young boys – who will be nine and two this year! I am a Kinesiology graduate who is currently working full time.
I started my blog as an outlet to share my love for my children, cooking, photography and coping with parenting while working full time. I love to share all the great tips and ideas that have been given to me (or found out the hard way – mostly found out the hard way!) with others. My boys are very active, love sports and my eldest is involved with competitive soccer. We love to hike, bake and make crafts together!
Have a look around, take a look at my recipes, photographs and tips. Let me know what you think! I am new and always looking for constructive feedback. I can not wait to meet all of you!
Connect with me on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest!

ABC Friday…M is for Mommy’s Monsters!

ABC Friday Photo Share…..with Mom vs the Boys and Maple Leaf Mommy!
This Friday…
M is for Mommy’s MONSTERS!

The boys received this ‘monster’ hat for Christmas and they completely love it!
They put it on and chase us around the house being silly little monsters. They growl, they dance and make funny noises. Their hat has given us hours of silly, make believe fun.

Jewelled Easter Egg Craft

We wanted to try something a bit different this year with our Easter eggs. My super creative co-worker (she always amazes me with the awesome ideas she comes up with!) had this great idea to glitter and jewel her Easter eggs!

I thought this was such an awesome (and frugal idea!). The whole craft cost us under four dollars! I went to the dollar store and purchased a package of jewel stickers for two dollars – I chose black and white but they had such a great variety of different colours.

We boiled our eggs like normal, let them cool and then patted them dry. We then stuck the stickers on and they stuck perfectly (I was a bit worried that they would fall off!) – they even survived being thrown across the floor when my two year wanted to use the eggs as a ball!!

My boys enjoyed the craft but really missed dipping their eggs in dye. Next year we decided we would dip the eggs first in dye and when they were dry we would put the jewels on. What crafts did you try out this year with your family?
