My husband and I attended Crafted last year and had so much fun. There was so much great food and craft beer.  The best part; it was organized fantastically, plenty of delicious food choices (vegetarian too), plenty of good local craft beer,  plenty of seats and great music. This year Buffalo Wabs & the Price Hill Hustle and Doc Robinson will be playing all your favorite tunes on the stage. I'm also super excited that my client  Yonder by Commonwealth Bistro is attending with their delicious farm to table eats as well.  Join us for a wonderful afternoon.

Brave Writer​ is speaking in Cincinnati this August!

Cincinnati Home School Friends: Julie Bogart, the founder of Brave Writer​ is speaking in Cincinnati this August! (You might know her as the "Poetry Teatime Lady.") August 25th, 9-4 WITH lunch!


My daughter and I recently attended one of her Poetry & Tea time events and had a blast. It was inspiration for our Poetry and Tea Time party the other day. 


Julie is a professional writer and when she was homeschooling her own 5 children she found that writing was a subject that was often poorly taught to children. She founded Brave Writer, a language arts program that meets children where they are and uses instinctive and creative ways to draw out the language arts which are already all around us.

She did all kinds of homeschooling over the years with her children, including Charlotte Mason who she has a soft spot for.

If you want to know more about Brave Writer you can check it out their website,

I love that much of what she does is straightforward (podcasts, Friday Freewrites,. etc) and that her heart is for community in the homeschooling world.


There are still spots open, but I'm sure they won't be for long. If you haven't heard Julie speak you're in for a treat. She's super uplifting in her talks and will make for a great launching point for your upcoming school year!  Also, get to know her on Instagram @JulieBraveWriter, she's always posting live stories and is very easy to connect with. 

You can register for the event here:
Saturday, August 25th from 9 am- 4 pm, cost is $40 which includes lunch.

You will want to fill out the google form to register. All of the information about the specific talks she's giving are on the google form.

There are still spots open, but I'm sure they won't be for long. If you haven't heard Julie speak you're in for a treat. She's super uplifting in her talks and will make for a great launching point for your upcoming school year! Be sure to visit the registration event page below to get set up. 


Full Disclosure the event organizer provided me with one free ticket in exchange for promoting this event. However, all opinions are my own and I'm super excited to attend.

Ask almost anyone what the best part of the Beer Cheese Festival is, and they’ll tell you, “Sampling beer cheese!” and they’re right. We start at 10:00 am and go all the way to 5:00 pm.
