About Hodgepodgemom

Tricia faces a daily dose of chaos homeschooling five children – preschoolers to high schoolers. The biggest lesson she’s learned? At the end of the day – when the dishes are put away and the children are tucked in bed – truly what matters is each child’s relationship with the Lord. Raising children is a God-given privilege and, folks, the time is short.


  1. We have lots of projects we’re working on for the holidays!

  2. No we are not at this time. I am not an artsy person and I am very interested is this Art for my kids.

  3. We do art every Friday, and most always use Hodgepodge right now…my kids love pastels and have enjoyed all the projects we’ve done so far….

  4. We are crafting a few gifts for Christmas, and hope to work on scrapbooking our trip.

  5. Tammy Jones says:

    We have been doing chalk pastels while I do read alouds.

  6. Always try to find time for art. This year I found some Advent Names of Jesus ornaments. We made several sets, one for us and a few to give away. So much fun. Will do a few other things yet before Christmas actually gets here.

  7. Yes I have several art projects planned. Some of them are Christmas presents and some are decorations for the house :-)

  9. Even though I know it should be included, we have done nothing in the way of Art all these years. I really think that my children would enjoy this!

  10. we are trying to allow more time for art by drawing something every day. I have never been good at art, so it is a struggle to remember its importance sometimes. The children really enjoy it, though, so we putter on.

  11. We are doing Jesse Tree ornaments, 3D snowflakes and making coasters with Mod Podge, scrapbooking paper and ceramic tiles. Thanks!!!

  12. We always do art projects. One of the art projects we are doing is making Christmas tree ornaments as toilet paper roll stars at a local elderly house!

  13. I am sorry to say that I have not incorporated much art into our homeschool schedule. We have done some art appreciation, but not many actual art projects. I am so happy I found your site and am excited to try some of your chalk tutorials! Thanks so much for hosting the giveaway. :)

  15. We’re actually pulling out some Hodgepodge Christmas pastel tutorials today! ;-) Grant is also enjoying simple drawing tutorials he is finding on Youtube for Christmas art. Thanks for this great giveaway!

  16. Denise Taylor says:

    Love all that you do. My kiddos and I really enjoy learning and doing along side grandma!

  17. We plan to do a little art the next couple of weeks before Christmas. I am thrilled to use your chalk pastels Christmas book!

  18. Yes, we’ve done a Christmas creative lettering lesson, and our pastor is using my daughter’s piece as the bulletin cover on Christmas Eve! We’re also making many of our gifts: jewelry, framed writing, etc.

  19. My 9yr old son has been turned off art since he had a bad incident with a school teacher who tore up his drawing. After much prodding I convinced him to do one of your tutorials. He enjoyed it! This would really boost his love of art & make him forget about his bad past experience when he sees that art is a God given gift to us…
