Hey, Wendy! Thank you for including my article about junk journals in your 15 junk journal ideas! You have such an informative and sweet blog here! And…. oh, 8 kids!!! Wow! What a MAMA! I only have one 4 years old! I’ll browse around here, I see there are many things to be discovered!

(one suggestion, if I may….please, try to edit the settings of the comments’ font size, I can barely see what I’m typing, I guess it’s because of the font choice, which I love, (btw!), but it shows tiny while typing in the comment. 🙂
