Ultimate Blog Party 2010

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

I'd like to welcome all the blog party bloggers and regular readers! You've stumbled across my little corner of the internet, called Spell Outloud. This blog has nothing to do about spelling---well usually it doesn't. Spell is my last name--hence my clever blog title (umm no laughing--lol).  I'm a SAHM with 5 kids. We're a homeschooling family living in the Midwest. Besides writing on this blog, I also write various articles on Squidoo.

I'm an avid photographer and love to scrapbook. I paper scrapbooked for over 8 years and then switched to digital scrapbooking. I occasionally do some hybrid projects, but mostly enjoy creating on the computer. I started this blog about a year ago to share educational and crafty ideas with others.

So what can you find here?

We've just started our BIG SUMMER FUN series. I'd love for all of you to join in the summer planning and activities showcases. Be sure to subscribe or follow via Google Connect, Networked Blogs, or Twitter.

I'd enjoy hearing from you! Please leave a comment to let me know you were here. I'd love to stop by your blog as well. :)

~Maureen but you can call me Mo

So glad to meet you! I love your blog, it is adorable! I want to learn how to scrapbook on the computer more, I love paper scrapbooking but the supplies get everywhere, especially with young children.

And hooray for 5 kids! I am the oldest of 5 kids. I don't know if I will have that many, I have 2 so far :)

God bless!

How fun!! I really want to homeschool myself! My son wouldn't be starting puplic school until 2011 since his birthday is in Nov. I really really don't want to put him into puplic school. I want to start homeschooling him this year actually. That is just too cool that you visit here. I love it!! I go to Cruces sometimes since we also have a church out there too and my cousin goes to that one. It's nice to have met you. I will be following you!!!

I just recently got into digital scrapbooking and I LOVE it! I can NOT stand paper scrapbooking. I do not like to cut and punch and glue and on and on and...what a mess! Some are great, I am NOT.

Please come by and enter my giveaway for a headband set from Sugar Owl Design. Ends tonight at mid.

Since I started blogging, I've gotten way behind on my scrapbooking. As much as I love digital, I'm not ready to make that switch, but you've got me thinking about it. Thanks for stopping by!
