Musings of a Book Addict

I'm married to a scavenger of sorts and he often totes home rescued boxes of books that I paw through with shiny, hungry eyes. I pull out the odd and interesting and add them to my teetering stack.

The Creative Family: How to Encourage Imagination and Nurture Family Connections

The Creative Family: How to Encourage Imagination and Nurture Family Connections - Amanda Blake Soule I am a big fan of Amanda Soule and her wonderful blog SouleMama (http://soulemama.typepad.com/). She really amazes me in how she raises her now four(!) children and keeps her house so lively and creative and filled with inspiration for everyone. I read this as part of my "Good Mother Research." What makes a good mother? I think Amanda Soule is one. This is a really sweet read for anyone that wants to bring more creativity and authenticity to their homes and lives.
