Italy, Monaco, France, Spain & Vinko

Some might call it crazy to go on a month long vacation which includes four countries, three different languages, one small child who just learned how to run, three women with vastly different food preferences, bed times, communication techniques and temperaments -- but not my family, we call it normal.

I won't torture you with the 2,000 photos we took with my sisters fancy camera - here are some highlights via my camera phone...

Hotel requirements: Theresa must have internet, Vinko needs a crib, Mom likes breakfast included and I insist only staying at hotels with monogrammed towels.

Watch out Rick Steves!!! I'm trying to convince my mother to set up her own Youtube travel channel - she's wildly informative, knows a handful of languages and looks great on camera. We also have about 9 hours of footage if anyone wants to watch my sister and I tell my mom to turn off the camera 36 different ways.

Convincing Conor how much fun crafting can be

Little known fact: men don't like to use glue sticks. I did not know this. Good thing I brought double sided tape

So serious when I craft

Finished! Conor channeled his macaroni art days and made this beautiful card for his mother. A+ student

ME on ABC's 'The List' with Conor Knighton

Check out my crafting segment on ABC's 'The List' with the VERY funny Conor Knighton. I love my intro...

"Master crafter and scrapbooker to the stars, Tanja Maduzia, explains how you can make your Mother's Day card a little more personal - and affordable - by going homemade."

Guest on What's The Deal? with Conor Knighton:
Getting crafty for Mother's Day with affordable handcrafted cards

Here's what you need:

• A few sheets of paper (in different colors and slightly different sized rectangles)
• A scissor
• Some tape
• A picture of you and your mom

Here's what you do:

1. Layer one sheet of paper over another and tape them together so they look like a frame.
2. Using 3D foam tape, attach the photo to layered paper to make it stand out"

My Sunday: Church and brunch - all while wearing a head to toe pastel outfit courtesy of J.Crew...

My bff and plus-size fashion blogger, Rachel, joined me for some serious brunching at the new A.O.C. in Beverly Hills. LOVE. The decor is straight from the French countryside including cosy fireplaces and a beautiful outside patio perfect for a romantic evening.

Food was excellent. Rachel ordered the AOC Brioche which didn't disappoint. I opted for the Wood Oven Baked Eggs which was served on a cast iron skillet and the perfect combination of Olives, Canneloni and kale.

Apparently AOC has a cocktail hour special which runs from 5-7pm daily and offers food and drink specials which range from $4 to $10 - Can't wait to go back.
