Me on TV, a Magazine and The Nest

Hello dear readers! Today, I want to share some exciting things that have been happening recently at Echoes of Laughter.

First up. Last week I was absolutely thrilled to make my very first TV appearance on CTV News at Noon here in Edmonton. I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to pitch some ideas to Erin Isfeld, the news anchor for the program, a few weeks ago while I was at BlogWest.  The following week, I received an email from the producer, inviting me to come on the show to share some Easter crafts and recipes. I cannot tell you how happy I was!  If you would like to see my 4 minutes segment, go HERE and scroll down to where you see the video for "Easter crafts and decorating for kids".

Last week, I also had 2 of my ideas featured at Style At Home Magazine's website. My Easter Petit Fours and Easter Cookie Decorating Kit were featured in an online article there and my Easter Petit Fours picture was on the home page for the day. You can see it  HERE.

And awhile ago, I was asked to write a new blog on a large Canadian network called UrbanMoms. This new blog is called "The Nest" and I will be sharing ideas and inspiration there twice a week for the UrbanMoms community. I am super excited about this opportunity to share  ideas in  a new forum with a new audience. And guess what else? To kick off "The Nest" at UrbanMoms, the wonderful owners of Greenmunch donated an amazing prize worth over $150 of lovely party supplies for one lucky reader at UrbanMoms. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment on my new blog HERE. {Canadians only.} And here is what you can win:

And as you might have noticed, I am now doing some sponsored post work for brands here at EOL. I will only be working with brands/products that I love and use in my own home. But I hope you understand that earning some income for Echoes of Laughter is a good thing for my family. I have been using family money to fund the projects here for years. So, it's nice to be at the point where EOL can now fund some projects on it's own, so that when I go shopping for craft supplies, recipe ingredients, paint or whatever, the blog can fund these things for me. And I love having the occasional giveaway to share with you!

I am so looking forward to Spring, despite the fore casted snow storm for tomorrow. I can't wait to get outside to spray paint some furniture.....and  I have lots of fun projects coming up which I can't wait to share with you all!

Thank you so much for visiting here at EOL. You are all AMAZING!
