BlogHop 08 Party Post and Giveaway

So typical! I'm late! No, I didn't FORGET! I just found out about this party, and if there's a blog party, I'm there! I can't wait to meet some new friends!


The preliminaries... If you want to join the party, the Mr. Linky is at Robin's blog, Pensieve, our charming hostess for this soiree. The adorable badge was designed by Karen at Simply aMusing Blog. Isn't it the cutest thing? And, last, but not least, I found out about this great carnival from Elaine at The Miss Elaine-ous Life. If you like scrapbooking, you'll love her blog!


Welcome to my blog! We all write about what we like, so here's a few of my interests:
1. My kids and family
2. Reading
3. Scrapbooking
4. Writing
5. Organizing
6. Trying new products
7. Learning and education
8. Blogging (duh!)
9. Amateur Photography
Please come in and make yourself at home. If you're hungry, hop over to AllRecipes for some tasty treats or even a complete meal. For the calorie-conscious, you could instead visit Anita's Tried and True Recipes.


If you'd rather talk about creating peace, order, and beauty in your home, you could visit Home Sanctuary. And if you need some help or motivation getting organized, try I'm an Organizing Junkie. If you have a reading addiction, may I suggest Reader's Anonymous? Last, but not least, if you enjoy scrapbooking, take a look at Scrapjazz.


Stay awhile if you can, but if not, please accept my open invitation to come back and visit any time. And if you made it this far in the post, I have a little something for one of you. Please leave a comment on this post to be entered in a GIVEAWAY. I will draw one random winner from all comments left by July 26 (but I'm sorry that I can only afford to ship to a US address). The winner will receive a PartyLite pillar candle! (And if you're interested in some free, gently read children's books, see this post before July 20.)

What a nice giveaway - that's so sweet of you! And thanks for the "shout out" too!

Thanks so much for the 52 sketches link also! I am so excited to have found that! You're the best! : )

Could I put anymore exclamation marks in this comment? HA!

Found you from the Mom Blogger's Club! Great giveaway!

Nice candle! My sister is the first post on your comments! We like the same things! I like your candle more than she does! hehe!

Robin said...

What??? I'm not too late for a contest?? WAHOOO! Even if I don't win, it's nice to at least be early enough for the drawing :).

THANK YOU for joining in the BlogHop--next year will be BETTAH 'cause I'll send out the "invitations" earlier (hey, can you believe attendance for this last minute idea?).

Funny, but your blog name is a GREAT one to remember; you and I share several common interests--I share over half of yours (not tellin' which...like to keep you guessing).

Again, many thanks, and be sure to visit next week if you're able when I'll be hosting giveaways daily!

:)
