Meet Our Friend Of The Week April

April J Harris

Are you ready to go on a trip? This week we are packing our bags and travelling to the village of Berkshire, England to visit our long-time blogging friend April J. Harris of the 21st Century Housewife!

The first thing that you need to know about April and her blog is that it isn’t just for written for housewives: April is passionate about encouraging everyone to enjoy life to the full, especially their family life! Her passion for life and adventure shines through on her blog as she loves to travel and frequently shares about her adventures in amazing places all around the globe, as well as the most scrumptious recipes you could ever imagine (like her Chocolate Orange Marble Cake with step-by-step instructions)!


April has a fascinating background: she’s both British and Canadian, a wife of 25 years, a mom to an adult son, an accomplished writer, recipe developer and established blogger. Over the years, her blog (which launched in 2002!) has evolved into a comprehensive lifestyle blog that covers all of the topics she loves. She also hosts the popular Hearth and Soul Link Parties – one of my faves!

Comments mean the world to bloggers. Won’t you brighten April’s day by dropping by her blog, introducing yourself and leaving a little comment love on a post that catches your eye, and congratulating April for being our Friend of the Week at Create With Joy?

  5. My favorite topic of the moment is Sea Glass! Broken glass that ends up in the ocean and after a long time tumbling around in the sand, gets transformed into a beautiful frosted bauble. My mother always said, ‘One mans trash is another mans treasure!
    I have been blogging about collecting it with my daughter and learning to make jewelry with it!
    Would love for you to come and visit my blog and read my short story on it!!
