  1. wow that's some give away Jinny. just popped in to see what you were up to and saw this. Some great things for sure.
    As for advice - I'd say trust in God, enjoy each moment - even the tough ones, just love em and stay calm and enjoy the right. The years will go all to fast. Take time to yourself when you can.

  2. What a fun giveaway! I would share to be kind to yourself, remember to breathe, take small moments for yourself to have a cup of tea and read or flip through a magazine for a little mental vacation :)

  3. What a fun giveaway. What a wonderful bunch of fun. It is very generous of you. I enjoyed your blog too. Good work. Thanks again

  4. Wow wow wow! What a giveaway my friend!! My best advice (which probably isn't easy with 3 - and home schooling on top of it) -- but is to rest whenever you can :) I never did with Adam ... but with Brookie I did -- and the dishes (and the blog!) can wait -- your health can't :)

  5. Hey Jinny! What a very generous and cool giveaway. Hope you're all doing well. My advice would be to hang in there, take it easy and try and enjoy the moments. You already know time flies so fast when you have kids...and you also know things get a little easier once they turn one. It'll happen so fast. Hugs to you and your sweet ones.

  6. How very very kind of you Jinny ... Such amazing goods! Have a lovely weekend!

  7. Forgot to say ... my best advice would be not to be hard on yourself ... no one is perfect and rest when you can and enjoy each moment ...

  8. That is a huge wonderful giveaway! Best advice, remember yourself and your hubby. Take time to enjoy! And thank God everyday!

  9. Wow! Very generous. I just signed up as a new follower.

    My best tip would be to listen to others for advice, but find what works for you - also don't expect to be perfect because everyone makes mistakes.

  10. Not hee for the giveaway, just seeing what your up to! Destiny has 6 weeks to go and I am getting so excited! her world is about to change :-) My advise is to try and take some time for you to recharge! If I lived closer I'd come babysit :-) Hugs

  11. What an awesome haul! :)

    Ask for help if you are tired. It's okay to not be able to do it all.

  12. Oh Jinny! Always thinking of others!
    It is quite exhausting sometimes, but it's only temporary, as kids grow up so quickly.
    When I am feeling overwhelmed, I try to take a mommy time-out. Even if it's just a 10 min walk.
    You are an amazing mother and you will persevere.

  13. Oh boy am I late to the party. That's a LOT of stuff! Boy it's going to be hard to give such a great mom advice on raising kids. I already admire you so much. I'd have to say one of the things I'm most grateful for is my daughter's desire for church, others, and God. Keep those babies in church as long as you can! Hugs!

  14. You are so sweet Jinny! What a fabulous give-away! I don't think I can give you any advice, since it seems you are doing better than I do and I don't even have a newborn anymore! Just keep loving those sweet ones and keep up the crafting!

  15. WOWOWOWOW!! What a GIFT Jinny!! =)
    Well as a New Mom myself I can say that my biggest piece of advice is to COMMUNICATE!! As a Mom sometimes we try to DO EVERYTHING because we feel its our Job!! Especially when your a SAHM!! Communicate with those in your life and let them know if you need HELP or need some personal time or just want to talk!! I've found that it can make ALL the difference!! =) You are SURROUND by SUPPORT and LOVE and sometimes just alittle HUG or some CONVERSATION can mean the WORLD during a BUSY DAY!! =) THANKS for sharing and for the chance to win!! Have a FABULOUS MOTHER'S DAY WEEKEND!! =)


Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving some love! Please come visit again soon!

God Bless, Jinny
