I Finally Did It!

Welcome to A Mama's 2 Cents Worth...!
Well, finally after much debate in my head, I did it!

I started a blog.

Who am I?

Angela is my name and now blogging will be my game, along with being a "Mama". I was born in the Maritimes, small little rural community of less than 1000on the Southwest Miramichi River (best Salmon fishing in the world) then transplanted myself into Toronto (the Big Smoke) to pursue a career in Massage Therapy. Now married and a SAHM to 2 beautiful children, the Princess (2 1/2 yrs going on 16) and the Cheeky Little Monkey (10 months). My hubby, Mr. Man of 3 1/2 years (but actually been together 12 yrs this August) is my soulmate and best friend and supports me in every adventure I have began...from coming here to work and now to stay at home and raise our kiddies.

I am also a crafter; loving to sew, crochet, knit and scrapbook; all...
                                                                                   while they are napping.
Deep down running through my blood is the Miramichi and I always dream of being there. It is a place where the minute you feet touch the ground you blood pressure drops and your thoughts slow down. Ahhhh...my hometown, how I do miss thee. I will always be longing for Home home, as I call it. I really chuckle at this part of me because growing up in a one grocery store town, I always wanted out to bigger and better places but now find myself longing for the bit of life I wished away. I guess family has become more important to me than being in the hub of it all. My how times change.

So why start a blog? What is it's purpose?

Well, I wanted to give my 2 cents worth when it comes to the essentials of family and parenting and mix it in with some family and kid friendly activities and crafts. I also once in a while will give a glance at my life as a parent, a spouse and my kiddies. I hope to offer my readers reviews of note-worthy products that a family could use and/ or enjoy and then allow you to know that is something you might like to own. I am always looking for you comments and input so feel free to make a comment.

I have been a parent now for 2 1/2 years and I sometimes still see these lists of things telling new parents what they need to be better and the best (I admit I did get sucked in to with the Princess but realized with Monkey that the list isn't the be all). I want to help families know what's worth spending our hard earned money on & what is not... As my mom asks "What you want and what you need" when choosing our wish lists at Christmas, so I want to apply this to parentood. I will also try to add in some of my crafts and tutorials of my own and from other sites that can be done by everyone even if you aren't crafty. Homemade is always more fun than the packaged stuff.

Did I say Giveaways???

Yes, yes I did!!! (hearing Phineas in my head saying this and now having claimed it as my own) I am lining them up as we speak...some small, some Big and some HUGE. I hope you'll stay close so I can make everyone's life a little more.
So please stay tuned...

                                                               and drop by often.

Please meet those at the Centre of my Universe
Cheeky Little Monkey

I hope you come back and check out the news....and the giveaways!
