Mad Libs Monday: “It’s About Time” by Marie LeBaron of Make and Takes
Today’s “It’s About Time” post comes to us courtesy of Shelle Blok and is from the Mad Mad Mad Mad Mad Mad Libs book.
I am still trying to remember the first time I met Marie. It feels like I’ve known her almost as long as I’ve been blogging. I do have a fond memory of a Saturday-morning craft day with kids in tow to help decorate the Christmas tree at The Christmas Box House. She and Jyl had put together a really fun event complete with craft sticks, glue, glitter and even some yummy cupcakes.
Marie is the queen of kid-friendly crafts. She is so über talented in this area, my little brain can’t even fathom it. She’s involved in lots of great blogger-related events like Social Luxe Lounge and Eat. Blog. Run. plus a few more I’m sure I missed. Her site, Make and Takes, has become a household name and it’s not hard to see why.
After the story you’ll find a few interesting facts about Marie. Enjoy!
