Summer Crafts to the Rescue with #LinkedMoms chat

Odds are good that if you are a parent and your kids are home this summer, they want to craft. I know mine do. All the time. Sometimes it is actually overwhelming trying to find crafts that keep us all engaged. (This I admit is not my strength.) So happily, this week our #LinkedMoms chat has great guest host Cynthia Gagen joining us (@cyngagen on twitter is well known as a crafty gal and a savvy social media practitioner. Oh and she’s local.

Cyn(thia) Gagen honed her creative skills in cooking, crafting, teaching, parenting, and loving life by being a (sometimes annoying) tag-along and following her parents, grandparents, and siblings around wherever they went. Now she blogs about it at Creative Cynchronicity

She utilizes her communication and teaching skills to share crafting, cooking, holiday, home DIY, family fun ideas, and more on her blog and through her weekly webtv show Creative Cynchronicity Live, Wednesdays at 9:00 Eastern, at

Cyn is on the board of directors and works on social media for Colour a Child’s World (, a charity whose mandate is to bring art to the children of Honduras. She is also the social media coordinator for Charity Wings (, an organization that brings together crafters and charities by implementing crafting events to raise money for worthy causes. Charity Wings’ next event is called LIVE from CHA (the Craft and Hobby Association Trade Show) and they will be live streaming from the event so that those of you who are unable to attend it in person, can get your sneak peek at the latest in crafting products and techniques from leading manufacturers and crafting celebrities. With your ticket, you also are entered into the giveaways providing you with the chance to win one of over 45 prizes – that’s over $4500 in prizes in total! Tickets are $10 for one, or 5 for $20 but Cyn will be giving away a free ticket tonight for one LinkedMoms chat participant.

Our chat is at 8 pm EST. Join us and follow the #linkedmoms hashtag.
