It's Ultimate Blog Party Time!!

This is a sticky post for the Ultimate Blog Party and will remain at the top until March 9th. Until then, scroll down for new posts.

Welcome to the party!! Come on in!



Thanks for visiting my crazy cozy little corner of the blogoshpere!

First, let me tell you about the prizes.

Who? What? PRIZES???

Yep, that's right. I know you can win some GREAT prizes just by linking up to the Ultimate Blog Party at 5 Minutes For Mom, but I didn't get mine entered in time for their list. I decided to give them away right here.

The prizes are in no particular order:
1. Micro Fiber Cleaning Cloths that can be attached to your swiffer broom. They work wet or dry and they work equally well without the broom to pick up dust, dirt and hair. I'm a big fan of these!
2. A large micro Fiber Cleaning Cloth. Does the same as above, but it's bigger.
3. Scrapbooking pack #1.
4. Scrapbooking pack #2.
5. Hand stamped cards made by me.
6. Set of 4 kid's craft kits that make a mini American flag banner.
7. Hand stamped notepad and a gel pen.

Everyone who leaves a comment here will be entered into the drawing unless they ask not to be entered. Please make sure I am able to contact you either through your blog or an email address as those I am unable to contact will not be eligible to win and another winner will be drawn. Those commenting more than once will only be entered once.

Commenter's' names will be put into a hat and drawn out by my kids on the morning of March 10th, 2007 and will be posted here by 2 PM that day.

Would you like some refreshments? I have a great Zingria (Its my favorite party punch) and some chips and salsa for you.

Zingria
1 two-liter bottle lemon-lime soda (or pop if you're from Ohio).
1 64 oz. bottle of grape juice.
3/4 Cup white sugar.
1 orange sliced
Ice, ice ring or frozen grapes as desired.

Mix soda and juice. Add sugar and stir (mixture will foam a little) add orange slices and chill until served. Add ice or grapes just before serving.

So here's a little about me. I am a Mom to two boys, Matthew and Steven and I've been happily married to Mike (I call him DH for Dear Husband) for nearly 10 years.

I am a stay at home Mom, but I babysit and I substitute in the school kitchens. I also am a Designer with Home and Garden Party. I love to make crafts, stamp, sew, crochet, draw, paint, cook, bake, blog, watch movies, sing, read and fish. I am a big history buff, too. If you are so inclined, you can check out my 100 Things About Me post to find out more.

Make sure you stop back later this week, too. I'll be posting about MY DAY for Owlhaven's party and I'll be posting about whatever I decide to Make From Scratch for Stephanie's contest. Let me know if you decide to join in either one of them, too.

I'm so glad you stopped by today! It's been great seeing you! Don't forget to leave a comment and let me know you were here so I can enter you in my prize drawing! I plan to visit everyone who stops by. Have a great week and enjoy the parties!

I am ALL ABOUT your party punch. And it's not spiked, which is a bonus for this virgin drink drinker. Err..OK maybe I could have reworded that but thanks for the party (and I did cut-and-paste that recipe!) YUM!

I hadn't logged on your blog in a couple of days...whew....am I behind. You are a very hospitable party host. After reading yours I thought I might revamp...or just do something different next time. I like that you are giving out your own prizes!!!!

Janice (5 Minutes for Mom) said...

Ya gotta LOVE "Love Shack!" Just gets me moving every time - thanks - I needed to get some energy - it is getting late and I got a lot of partying to do still tonight!

oh - and it is "pop" over here on the west coast of Canada! "soda" sounds sooooo strange!!!!

OOHHHH - does that mean I can win a prize over here?!?! how fun!

Jen said...

I laughed out loud at your story about your son scribbling in his pants. What a poetic way to say it!

lifeasamama said...

Karla said...

Cruising by the party blogs to say hello. Your punch recipe sounds delicious. I'll have to try it!

Vicki said...

I love that song! It plays on my cell phone when my house is calling me. (which if my daughter is home is about every 2 minutes)

Margaret said...

(in my most inpatient voice)... Is it time for the drawing yet? huh? is it? Is it?? :) (hoping for 5 or 7 or 1 or 2 - since I don't scrapbook)

Brandie said...
