It’s The Ultimate Blog Party 2008!

It's time for The Ultimate Blog Party, hosted by Janice and Susan at 5 Minutes For Mom. Here is a little bit about their site:

"We started 5 Minutes for Mom because we believe in community and moms supporting one another. (If you have to buy, why not buy from another mom!) We wanted to design a site that would help, encourage and entertain moms, while bringing exposure to mom-run blogs, sites and stores."

This is my first year participating in this huge event and I welcome you to my blog. I have only been blogging for a few months, along with my etsy shop, and I have to say it has changed my life. I have made some great friends while doing this and I look forward to making even more.

I am a former teacher, now SAHM to my 6 and 3 year old daughters. It was hard for me to give up my career at first, but now I love my new job. Hardest and best job I have ever had.

I have always loved to create, so having my shop led me to blogging. It has given me so much satisfaction. It is my "me" thing and I love it.

I usually blog about the everyday things that occur to me, ideas, funny stories, show things I make, oh, and I have become ADDICTED to swaps. It is so much fun for me to meet new people and create something original for one another.

I will cut this short, I have the flu at the moment and I am really over it. Please come back soon, visit with me, wander about my blog, leave me a comment every now and then, and tell me all about yourself.

There are SO MANY awesome gifts up for grabs as well. Here are some of my favorites, in no particular order:

# 11 Good for the Kids

# 113 - Arbonne Pampering Basket

#103 LEGOS
