Walkin’ the Crew Blogs 8/10/10

Week 5 of Walkin’ the Crew Blogs already!  Wow, this is fun – and fast!  Today Brenda and I have 2 very special First Mates to feature (along with their mini-teams). 

First up, from our Starboard Crew (which mainly reviews products for 7th-12th grades), we have First Mate Heidi from Chatter, Clatter, and Things That Matter.  Heidi has been a faithful Crew member since our Maiden Voyage, and is serving as a First Mate for her 2nd term.  I don’t just like her because we share a name and we’re both lefties – she’s been a great asset to the Crew in so many ways and I always enjoy reading her blog.  I had the privilege of meeting Heidi at the Midwest Convention in Cincinnati this past spring, and she’s just as cute in person as I expected her to be!

Heidi’s mini-team is called The Navigators and consists of the following members:nav-final-175

Second up this week, from our Port Crew (reviewing products from infant through 6th grade) is First Mate Jodi from The Homeschool Desk.  This is only Jodi’s second year with the Crew and her first as a First Mate, but she’s one of those people I feel like I’ve known forever (and I’m going to get to meet in person in 2 weeks!)  Jodi is always very willing to lend a helping hand and has been a great asset to the Crew.  This year, in addition to serving as a First Mate, she is heading up the Blog Cruise, which is the Crew’s  very own weekly meme.  She is also working with me on a new project that TOS will be releasing very soon – so stay tuned for more details on that!

Jodi calls her team Stars of the Sea.  Her team is made up of the following:Starsoftheseabutton[2]

Thanks, Heidi & Jodi, for being such wonderful Crew mates and friends! 

If you’re not already following these ladies’ blogs, I’d encourage you to do so.  At least stop by for a visit and tell them Heidi sent you!

Thank you so much for highlighting me and my mini-crew this week! I enjoy working with you so much, and I can't wait to meet you and your family next week! Thanks for all that you do for the Crew, and for blessing me with such a wonderful mini-crew. They are a great group of ladies to work with! See you soon:)

Thanks so much for mentioning our mini-crew today! I'm so excited about being on the crew this year! :)

Thanks for the highlight, Heidi! I have a great group of ladies on my mini-team! Meeting you at the Midwest Convention was great! Too bad you were stuck behind the booth most of the time - I would have taken you out for chai/coffee - or chocolate - or both! I'm looking forward to another great year on the Crew!
