It's Party Time!

Welcome to the party, please come in. Can I take your coat for you? When I heard about this Ultimate Blog Party from one of my favorite blogs Blonde Mom Blog you know I had to join in. Of course I am fashionably late as usual. For those of you who know me outside of blogosphere you know I am always late, so you're not surprised at all.

If your new to my blog, then please grab a snack and pull up a seat while I tell you a little about myself. This June my hubby and I will be celebrating our 9th wedding anniversary. This spring Miss A will be 4 and Miss K will be 6. Miss A is my bad beep. I am convinced that she will grow up to be the champion of the womens UFC division. You laugh, but if you actually know her then you have gotton your butt kicked by her at some point or another. Miss K is my performer. That girl is always, singing, humming, or dancing. Maybe she'll be on American Idol, nah because if she did and Simon was still a judge you know this Mama would be arrested for kicking his butt if he dared to say anything negative about my baby.

Some of my hobbies are spending hours online, scrapbooking (I'm so behind), rubber stamping, and making crafts. Speaking of crafts one of my newest is these cute little butterfly hair clips for my girls (see pic above). Now you know me I'm obsessed with party favors, so for the first 20 people who comment and leave a valid e-mail address in their post I will e-mail you for your mailing address and mail you one in the color of your choice. In your post mention if you like light pink, hot pink, purple, or white. I was thinking of selling them in my STORE, what do you think? I also have a prize on the Ultimate Blog Party for a $25 gift certificate to my STORE. You just need to visit Ultimate Blog Party for rules to enter. Gift certificate entries are not done here, only hair clip party favors. Enjoy the party:)

P.S. My favorite giveaways on 5 Minutes for Mom are #7 Bead Dangle Photo Tile Necklace, #24 Blog Design by Sweet 'n Simple Design, #142 Ballerina Barrette Holder, #45 Blog Design by Summer, and #67 Blog Design by See My Designs. Are you noticing any kind of theme here yet:)

Wow looks like I'm not late. Though we have that in common, my friends just assume I'm going to be late, makes it easier on them! I would love a party favor, thats a great idea! I think my dauthter looks good with purple in her hair! My e-mail is

Laura of Harvest Lane said...

I'm later than you were!
I hadn't even thought of party favors. What a great idea! I've got two girls too. My performer is my oldest. I'm not sure what my youngest will be yet. She's still very into cuddling.

I think white would be best; that way the girls can share it.

Thank you so very much!

I would love one in light pink. Thank you for your generosity!

Your daughters are beautiful!

Allie Bear said...

Stopping by from the blog party and I must say, you are very talented. I'm a pretty creative person but my laziness gets in the I love the butterfly clips,my daughter doesn't have any hair right now (I cut it off, long story but you can check it out at my blog if you are interested) but once it grows back in that would look so cute on her, I think white is nice because it goes with everything. I'll definately be checking out the rest of your blog and your store. Thanks.

I love the butterfly clips!! I wish I could make those. I had some that looked similar (not quit as cute) that I bought, but my little one's managed to lose most of them. Great party!! Have a great week!

What a fabulous idea with the party favors!

We love baby pink around here, but purple is also fun if that's easier for you. I might just send this to my little niece.

I love scrapbooking, rubber stamping and crafting too, and always feel a bit behind with all of it. Maybe because I spend too much time out in the land 'o blog!

Fun party. I'll definitely visit again!

I had a good laugh visualizing you kicking Simon's butt! I'm thinking Miss A takes after her momma?? I'm sure there are a huge number of momma's after that man!

Yes, Jenny you are right Miss A takes after her mama. Normally I'm the quiet manner gal, but when it comes to my kids the claws will come out:)
