Hi there! It’s Shann.
As you may have noticed, there’s a little change going around over here at Dirt and Noise. I’ve got a new address, www.shanneva.com, and will be changing up the site soon. Not to worry, the content won’t change, so I hope you’ll still stick around. In fact, I think we’ll have more messier, louder fun than ever.
Speaking of fun, my good friend Alexa and some #Momswhowrite have come up with a fabulous #ebook bundle. It’s only on sale through the end of May, so get it while you can. There are 7 Awesome Books and you can get the whole bundle here for $9.99. That’s a savings of $45…and you know how much I like to save money. Plus, I love to support other Moms. Please take a look at the 7 books included below, and then you can place your order right HERE with my affiliate link.
Lose the Cape. Realities from Busy Modern Moms and Strategies to Survive by Alexa Bigwarfe and Kerry Rivera
This mothering gig is serious stuff. There’s no handbook on how to deal with your kid, yet many moms feel pressured to be “supermom.” Sure, there are parenting books and websites and Pinterest, but it’s overwhelming. There’s so much to do, and despite our best efforts, we likely feel guilty for not doing more, doing better, doing it all. This book is an attempt to reach out to all moms and let you know you’re already super. You don’t need the “cape,” really. Still, who couldn’t use a little help? Lose the Cape features resources galore – including suggestions and tips from a diverse group of moms to make life run smoother. Organization, meal planning, morning and evening routines, battling new mommy worries, and so forth are all tackled in one place to provide a handbook for any mom looking for some relief. We’re not experts. We’re like every other mom – trying to survive and show our kids some love. But, we’ve learned along the way to cut a few corners, to learn some systems to gain control of the chaos, to form support groups to lift us up, to find a way that works for our families and ourselves. We try to be super every day, but we don’t aspire to be “supermom” because she simply does not exist. We think it’s time for all moms to join together and Lose the Cape.

Declutter for Good: Share Your Stuff & Reclaim Your Life by Marianne Peters
Life can be messy. Sometimes the mess can be a barrier to the life you hope to live. Have you ever said:
• “I’d bake more if I could find the counter space. We need a bigger kitchen.”
• “Who has time for hobbies? There’s so much work to do around here.”
• “I’d like to have friends over, but the house is such a disaster. We’d have to spend hours cleaning! Who wants to do that after a full day of work?”
Sometimes the answer isn’t more time or more space—it’s less stuff. But how do you begin to sort out everything that has accumulated over the years? And how do you keep from accumulating more?
Declutter for Good: Share Your Stuff & Reclaim Your Life will inspire you to rid yourself of the possessions that are clogging up your plans, goals and dreams so you can pass them along to those who could use them.
