Prudent Advice: Mother’s Day Edition

My Prudent Advice: You have a garden.
Jaime first shared her prudent advice in her book, Prudent Advice: Lessons for My Baby Daughter. As a follow up, came her book My Prudent Advice: Lessons for My Daughter, which is a fill-in journal for a mother to share her thoughts with her daughter. In honor of Mother’s Day, we asked some of our favorite fellow bloggers to share their own prudent advice with us. Here is what they had to say…

Ashley from Lil Blue Boo, shares advice from her article, Make Good Choices and says…
Make good choices. And if you happen to make a bad one: take responsibility. If you make things right, you don’t have to feel bad about it anymore. You release it: *poof* and then you are free to be and do your best.

Nicole from Making it Lovely says…
Don’t be afraid to ask for what you want. It may not be handed to you, and you may have to work hard to get it, but it all starts by asking.

Amy from Mod Podge Rocks says…
Play outside as much as possible. It’s easy to get stuck indoors, especially with all of the technology we have these days. Some of my best childhood memories are playing outside – I still do it regularly with my dogs today!

Our lovely assistant, Amber, from Wills Casa says…
Never regret time spent on travel and education. These are priceless commodities. Experiences are more important than things.

Pick up a copy of Prudent Advice: Lessons for My Baby Daughter (A Life List for Every Woman) and the fill-in journal, My Prudent Advice: Lessons for My Daughter to give to a special mom this Mother’s Day.

Sew Pretty T-Shirt Dresses: More Than 25 Easy, Pattern-Free Designs for Little Girls is your answer for pretty dresses on a budget. We are definitely partial to T-shirt dresses and have made quite a few in our time: How to Turn a T-shirt into a Sundress, Hot Mess Mama T-Shirt Dress, 2-Minute T-shirt Dress and even a nightgown. Sew Pretty T-Shirt Dresses takes it even further with more than twenty-five projects that will show you how to transform an ordinary T-shirt into a beautiful dress for any occasion. I’ll let them tell you more…

Welcome to the “Sew Pretty T-Shirt Dresses” blog tour, featuring finished projects and giveaways from Sweet Seams’ latest book. The designers over at NYC-based Sweet Seams wanted to create a collection of fast, fun, and inexpensive dresses to make for their daughters, granddaughters, nieces and god-daughters. The dresses, which all start with a simple T-shirt, were inspired by all the little girls in their lives who feel special in projects that were made especially for them. Crafters can upcycle any T-shirt, maybe even an old favorite that doesn’t quite have the same fit anymore or one that’s stained near the hem. With 28 very different styles to choose from, anyone can find a design that fits the little girl in their own life.

Find out how to enter for the chance to win a copy of Sew Pretty T-Shirt Dresses: More Than 25 Easy, Pattern-Free Designs for Little Girls and check out the rest of the blog tour after the jump…
