Book Club: One for the Money (Stephanie Plum novel by Janet Evanovich)




Let's do a bit of a book club together shall we?

If you love reading but can't seem to find the time to do it, this book club will be perfect for you - we can motivate each other to find time to read!

So, book #1: One for the Money by Janet Evanovich:




You may have seen the movie come out last (or this?) year with Katherine Heigl. Loved it. But I have to admit I knew I would because I have loved this book (and the whole series) for years.

So whether you've read it before or it's your first time reading it, I'm inviting you to join me and get stuck into it on July!

Joining in is easy - just grab a copy of the book, from the library, your local book shop, or you can use my book depository affiliate link here for a paperback, hardback or audio cd copy.

Then make sure you've either liked the marissa writes a blog facebook page or signed up for email updates here at the blog, and we'll chat about the book throughout the month!

Also, comment below if you're joining in so I know you're here, and if you have any questions, ask away here, via email, or on facebook :)

Giggling, Hooting and Crafting with Sophie

Soph aka Hootabelle

The other day Soph and I had a great time with the new Giggle & Hoot magazine :)

We got sent a free copy to review here on the blog and we're already fans of Giggle & Hoot so it was an easy yes to the offer!

Here are a few pics of what we got up to:



  • Soph coloured in her own mask - I think it was meant to be Hoot but she's a Hootabelle fan ;)
  • We loved putting the felt Hoot together
  • Soph and I cut out the door hanger and she wrote her name on it
Plus there were stickers, drawing activities, and heaps more :)

This is a great magazine to take with you anywhere you need to keep the kids busy - I'd take it with me if we were going to a restaurant, doctor's office, or anywhere else I need to keep the girls amused without being too noisy.

If you're looking for your own copy, you can grab it for $5.95 - it's on sale from April 17 from ABC Shops, centres, online and newsagencies nationally.

Easy Easter Bunny Craft!



We got into some very cute and very simple Easter craft today!

The girls loved it and I did too :)


Here's how we made them:

1. Grab a small paper plate and paint the inner circle pink (we also put glitter around the edge)


2. When it's dry, cut the paper plate in half (now you have bunny ears!)


3. Now take a large paper plate and draw your bunny face on in thick black texta



4. Then just staple your ears to the large plate and your bunny is done!


The girls painted theirs pink, purple & blue..




I think they look fantastic! Here's Soph with hers:


Happy Easter from all of us!
