Friend Of The Week – Lisa
Now that November is upon us, it’s time to turn our attention to Fun, Family and Food – which are a few of the things that Lisa, a mom, wife, and former teacher turned blogger specializes in on her blog, Fun Money Mom!
Lisa is a Floridian who became a stay-at-home mom after teaching Kindergarten for 14 years. Inspired by her love of shopping and her habit of setting aside a small portion of her check to use as “fun money” each month, the idea for a blog focused on shopping deals, gift-giving ideas, and humorous tales of her shopping adventures was born!
Over time, her blog has evolved to encompass much more of her life – Lisa now regularly includes stories about family life, travel and remodeling adventures, and whatever else pops into her mind!
She’s also one of the co-hostesses of the very popular Share The Wealth Sunday Money Saving Blog Hop – a wonderful place to save money and connect with other bloggers!
Comments mean the world to bloggers. Won’t you brighten Lisa’s day by dropping by her blog, introducing yourself, and congratulating her for being our Friend of the Week at Create With Joy?
Now It’s Your Turn To Share!

Thank you for hosting, Ramona. Happy Friday to you, Magellan and Tsunami!
Have a wonderful weekend Kevin – hug all of the kitties for me! 🙂
I suppose it would depend on how much fun money came my way… but even just buying a hot cocoa and sitting in a coffee shop reading a book by myself sounds like a tiny little slice of heaven.
That does sound like a little slice of heaven indeed! 🙂
I just got back from spending a little “fun money” myself!
Last weekend, I participated in a scrapbooking garage sale at a local store and earned store credit for the supplies I sold –
so, I just had fun picking up some paints and distress ink crayons (which I discovered while browsing) for my Bible journaling and crafting projects!
Blessings to you Michele! 🙂
I just found your website and link-up last week, and I’m so excited to join the fun! I’m a second-generation homeschooler, a mom of 5, and a blogger for 7 years. One of my focuses is on history, and how to make it the most exciting subject in school. Glad to be here!
Welcome Nicki – so glad you found us!
You have a delightful blog!
Look forward to getting to know you!
Thanks for hosting!
Always a pleasure Donna – have a wonderful weekend!

I’m delighted you’re joining our community! Look forward to getting to know you!
Have fun meeting everyone and have a delightful week!
OOOPS! I accidentally put my comment on the BookNook link. So sorry! 🙂
AND- here it is: How is it Friday again so soon? The weeks are flying by and I’m just not ready. I planned to enjoy fall this year even if the temperatures didn’t cooperate, which they didn’t, but I haven’t because it’s just too hot. Today, it’s actually fallish out so I’m enjoying it tremendously! Have a wonderful weekend!
I can’t believe it myself – so much to do still!
Hope you have a fun weekend planned.
Our temps can’t decide whether they want to be fall or summer either!
No problem! I usually try to separate parties by a post or two to make things easier but some times things just don’t work out that way! 🙂
Thank you so much for hosting. I can’t believe we are already in November but it’s my favorite month for blogging with so many ideas.
Thank you so much for the feature…what a fun surprise!!! I’ve always loved your party and though my crazy, busy life has kept from linking up at any parties lately, I’ll definitely come back and join your next one (I was too late this time). xoxo
Thank you so much for the feature…what a fun surprise!!! I’ve always loved your party and though my crazy, busy life has kept from linking up at any parties lately, I’ll definitely try to make yours every week! xoxo
Know what you mean about life getting crazy Lisa.
Appreciate your social media support.
Join us as you can and have an amazing weekend! 🙂
Love to be here this week too!
Hmmmm…with this week’s fun money I would probably treat myself to dinner and a movie. Thank you for sharing your blog post with us at the #HomeMattersParty this week. Hope to see you link up again when the party opens on Friday at midnight EST!
Sounds like a delightful way to treat yourself – thanks for joining us Nicole!
