Thoughtworthy (Major Announcement Edition!)

Thoughtworthy

:: 1 ::

For four long months, I’ve been working on a project with a team of wonderful women. In the wee hours yesterday, that project was finished and I was finally able to announce it. You can see my Big Fat Charlotte Mason Announcement here:

We discovered an amazing cursive product! At GHC, I went by Janice Campbell’s booth and drooled over these. Unfortunately, she ran out before I could snap a couple up for my girls. I ended up buying them online when I got home.

Isn’t this amazing?

Each coloring page isn’t just for coloring — there are places in which to practice cursive strokes. Coupled with our beloved Papermate Flair pen collection, this is a totally fun way to get extra practice. The girls decided they prefer using their colored pencils.

Here’s the first quote of many from In Memoriam I’ll be sharing:

This is how I feel about AmblesideOnline. The immensity of the task feels crushing, if you really think about it, but how is it accomplished? One beautiful term at a time. ♥

Speaking of In Memoriam, want an up-close look at the cover?

Didn’t Alissa do an amazing job?

The inside is also laid out beautifully, and that was done by Hayley.

Such a lovely team of AO moms. ♥

This installment from The Low Energy Mom’s Guide to Homeschooling is pertinent for most of us this time of year.

    The cursive book you linked looks lovely. I see she recommends the Prisma color colored pencils on her site to use with the book. I prefer pens and I love the pens you linked, but wondered if you have tried them with this cursive book. Is the paper thick enough so they do not bleed through? Pesky questions…but I’d love to know before I order a set online.

      Oh! I’m glad you said this. I forgot to update the post. My girls did find that they liked their colored pencils better for this.

        Great, glad I asked!

    Brandy- AHHH! I didn’t order In Memorium right away like I should have and now Amazon says it is out of print again. Do you know if it will be back in print again?

    • Reply Brandy Vencel July 10, 2017 at 5:39 pm

      I hope soon! There is some sort of glitch with the printer, and they are not replying to my emails! 🙁 If you want to send up some prayers for this situation, I would very much appreciate it. I have no contact phone number for them, so email is my only hope. 🙁

    I do not know what the announcement is because I do not have face book and cannot watch the video. Could you also type up the info on your sight, so I can read about it?

    • Reply Brandy Vencel July 8, 2017 at 2:03 pm

      Hi! That’s strange. The video really should play for everyone. So when you pressed play, what happened?

      The announcement is that some friends and I brought In Memoriam back into print. 🙂

    Woo hoo!!!!!!!!!! This is so incredibly exciting and I cannot WAIT to get my hands on the print copy at long last!

    • Reply Lauren July 7, 2017 at 11:48 am

      Oh I wanted a copy of this so much and I am so glad that you did all the work to have it come back in print. All you ladies are amazing!

  • Reply Catharina July 7, 2017 at 10:00 am

    Thank you for making ‘In Memoriam’ available not only on Amazon.com but also on the .de and .uk websites. So much better for those of us in Europe!

    (I wish CAP would do this, only a few of their books are available. Circe, none.)

      You’re welcome! And I’m so happy you told me — I *tried* to set it up that way, but I wasn’t sure it had actually worked. ♥
