Lovely May Sponsor {+ Giveaway!}

I have someone fun to introduce to you today! Please sit down and enjoy meeting my friend Jodi, who is one of the May/June sponsors of Alicia's Homemaking. Whoo-hooo!

Cool thing? Jodi and I are actually "in real life" friends who recently reconnected through blogging.  Jodi blogs at:


Growing up, Jodi and I were connected through the common bond of being homeschoolers...we saw each other at our brother's baseball games, birthday parties, and even went to the same community college. Now, we live on opposite sides of the U.S., but as stay-at-home moms to little ones, our lives have so many common themes.

In her light and cheery corner of the web, Jodi chronicles the adventures of her sweet family, the Inks...

1) Jodi and her husband Josh, and  2) Their boys, affectionately known as the "Curly Haired Gingers"
Her ventures into the world of crafts...

Family friendly recipes, like this Rosemary Butternut Squash Pasta...

An eye for fashion (I heart the sidekick!)...

And a healthy dose of keepin' it real as she blogs about the daily life of a mom raising two busy boys.

To boot, Jodi has an etsy shop containing some fun and quirky vintage finds {which is where the giveaway comes in!}. A sampling of what you'll find in the Mrs. Ink Vintage and Handmade Etsy Shop:

  22. Those notes are cute--going to share this with my SIL @ Sidetracked in the Right Direction who has her own typewriter and might enjoy making those. BUT...my favorite item is without a doubt the rose necklace. I was catching up on posts since I've been out of town and scrolled past it on my down and thought, WOW! Can't wait to see what that's about--LOVE the necklace!
