Leonard Sweet’s Impressions of Our Citywide Art Contest

Most of you that know me personally probably know why I’ve been strangely silent the last couple of months. Right now, my husband and I are busy administrating a citywide art contest for high school students called Culture Shapers. This is our eighth year to run this visual arts contest, and it’s keeping us SUPER busy, as usual. But this week is the 8th Annual Visual Arts Awards Ceremony (on my birthday, no less), so life should start to settle down a little next week. Hallelujah!

All of that to say, we recently got to enjoy a visit from Leonard Sweet – one of our favorite authors and speakers and just all-around great guy. And after he got to see some of the artwork set up for a judging day and heard more about the contest, he recorded some of his comments and impressions about Culture Shapers.

Mom Houston - helping Houston area Moms to connect

The Houston Chronicle has launched a new channel called, MomHouston. It’s a place for local moms to find stuff to do, share parenting advice, brag about our kids, and most importantly, find one another. The site contains blogs, discussion forums and even a “refrigerator door” to share pics of your own kiddos.

If you’re looking for advice, blogs, photos and forums for Houston moms, check it out.

Holy cow!! Great use of visuals to help explain the proposed budget cuts and their actual impact on the overall budget.

You’ll never fold tshirts the same way again!

If you ever wanted to hear someone put a mommy’s day into a song, try this one! (I guarantee you’ll laugh your butt off.)

A little on the political side, but interesting nonetheless…
