The Ultimate Blog Party 2012

Ultimate Blog Party 2012

Have you heard of the Ultimate Blog Party  by

This is the 6th annual party and it looks to be so much fun.  Be sure to check the links on how you can participate.

If you are joining me from the Ultimate Blog Party, welcome to my site.

My blog started out as a fun way to share my love of planning parties for my kids.   I just love this picture of them having fun together.  It's been a few years since it has been taken, and they are now at the ages where they feel they are too old for big themed parties.    They are now teens and preteens, so things have changed a little bit.

In addition to party ideas on this blog ,   I also share my love of crafting, cooking, and couponing.

Two of my kids recently got into the act and also share two of their loves.

This is my son Kyle.  He has his own kids cooking series called Cooking with Kyle.  He has made recipes for Chicken Salad Surprise, Breakfast Burritos,  Beef Burritos,  Grilled Turkey and Cheese and most recently Ham and Cheese Bundles.  You can find his recipes in Feb/March/April of 2012, in the link at the top of the page  or by using the search box.

This is Kara, AKA mini craft diva.  She LOVES to make crafts and has started her own kids craft series called, Crafting with Kara.   She has made the cardboard flowers in the picture,  tissue paper butterflies,  flower pot bird nests,   Easter bunnies and clay creations.  You can see her posts through the link at the top of the page, or in the search box.

I recently started to host my very own linky party after posting my on  them for over a year.  It is called Dare to Share and opens on Friday nights.  I want it to be a fun place where we can share with our friends our favorite ideas, crafts, recipes, tips and more.  I would love it, if you would stop by and join the fun.  

This is me!  You usually don't see pictures of me very much, because I am the one behind the camera.  One of these days I will get some new pictures of me taken.  (maybe, LOL!)

ENJOY the party!
