  3. An Almost Unschooling Mom says

    You did such a good job! But, how much did Mark have to pay Emily, for that greatest daddy plug?

  4. Raising a Happy Child says

    This so awesome. Emily was so natural on TV, I loved it how she was making eyes to the cameraman. And even more moms (and dads) can benefit from your brilliance.

  5. Jessica Monte says

    Awesome! Congrats on expanding your creativity zone. Amazing!

  6. Valerie @ Frugal Family Fun Blog says

    Look at you – You are famous! How awesome is this? I loved your little girl's smile right at the beginning – too cute.

  22. Katie's Nesting Spot says

    Your famous!!!☺ It's so fun to watch these little clips and hear your voice Valerie. Great projects as well, you get your inner Martha on! So fun to see you craft with various sunflower steps. Did you guys have to eat all the contents too☺

  23. What an awesome segment. That was a joy to watch. Emily you are a star! What a hoot Emily was. Great wrap for daddy too!

    I had seen most of those fabulous ideas on your blog and loved seeimg them again. I had not seen the cookie cutter idea to make bubble wands. Awesome. You need to write a book – it would sell like hot cakes.

    Thanks for the interesting ideas. I appreciate the post and look forward to more in the future.

  29. Valerie @ Frugal Family Fun Blog says

    @ Katie's Nesting Spot — I cannot stand oatmeal, but Clara eats her fair share of the stuff, so we usually have some empty canisters around. Of course, Mark never lets me live down the time we filled the inflatable pool with oatmeal…. We had LOTS of containers after that! LOL

    @ biancifiore — Wow!!! Thank you so much! 🙂

  30. SMMART ideas says

  31. That was really neat! I would never have been able to be on TV, but you and Emily did awesome! 🙂
