Ultimate Blog Party 2010

There's an ULTIMATE Blog Party going on over at 5 Minutes for Mom and I am continuing the fun over here! You can too!! This is my first time joining in on a Blog Hop party of this size and I am excited to meet lots of new people. I hope I will have the time to keep up.

This is also the first time I will be holding a GIVEAWAY on my blog!!!
Read more on that in a bit...

Before I get all distracted (yes, that happens a lot) how about a little about this blog. Of course, I have a lovely About Page to check out but it is in need of updating.
  • I am a stay-at-home mom trying to hang on to my sanity.
  • Our kiddos are in school, at home.
  • Gardening is a passion, but I can get neglectful of it around harvest time.
  • I'm an aspiring photographer who needs a lot more time to practice.
  • Coupons are a TON of fun to me and I teach coupon classes.
  • I find my kids hysterically funny. :)
  • I have always loved computers and techie things.
  • Coding on a blog is fun to me!
  • I LOVE to read and research things like crazy.
  • Sometimes I stay up too late but I don't like coffee. Hehe...
Obviously, since I love all of these things they all tend to find their way to my blog. If you'd like to hear more, than please follow me on this Blog or Twitter! I can promise you that I will get carried away at some point in time. :)

Reasons to revisit next week:
Besides the Give Away? Sure! There's more!
  • Update to my Online Coupon Class
  • Walk through recipe post... Yummmm!
  • Funny kid story from my crazy kiddos
  • And MORE

Now about that mentioned Give Away:
I know Mother's Day is coming up and it's always fun to get lovely, little trinkets to give to mom... or keep for yourself? Well, I made a pretty, pink bracelet to Give Away for you to give away! (Or keep! Hehe... I won't tell, if you won't.) This bracelet is made from glass beads and has a threaded heart clasp. I used steel wire to make this to keep it strong, yet flexible.


This Give Away is OVER:
You can see who won in the last comment of this post.
  1. Leave me a (nice... please?) comment! I love comments...
  2. Follow me on Twitter and let me know by leaving another comment.
  3. Follow my little Blog and let me know by leaving a comment.
Stuff to pay attention to:
- Each way to enter gets you one entry to win.
 - Please make each comment separate so that I can count easier.
- PLEASE make sure that I have a way to contact you from the comment.
(If I can get to your blog and you have contact info, I can find ya.
I just need to be able to let you know YOU WON! :) )

I (or one of my kiddos actually) will draw a number from a hat to choose the winner! Our little drawing ceremony will commence at the END of the Ultimate Blogging Party (April 16 around 12pm Eastern Time) to make sure everyone hopping over here has a chance to enter.

I really appreciate you stopping by my little part of the party! I hope you come back and visit again!

As a side note, if I am chosen to win something from the Ultimate Blog Party prize list, I would love one of these:

Of course, the GRAND PRIZE would be fabulous! :)
#16 – A custom-made tutu for a baby or little girl.
#17 – One of 3 prizes for aspiring photographers and creative women… a copy of photo book Camera Creative, a copy of Found Art, and the big whopper of a Real Women Scrap pack including a Real Women Scrap TV DVD, Real Women Scrap (the book), a Real Women Scrap t-shirt, and a special notebook
#33 – A custom tutu

Or any gift cards to Amazon, Kroger, VISA Debit or ToysRUs available. :)
