The Ultimate Blog Party 2013

Ultimate Blog Party 2013

I was just thinking the other day that it was about time for the Ultimate Blog party, so I was very excited to find out it starts TODAY.  The Ultimate Blog party is hosted by twin sisters Janice and Susan of They are long time bloggers and this is their 7th party!  I participated in the fun last year, and I am thrilled to join it again. 

Now to introduce myself to all of you who are new to my blog.

My name is Pam, and I started Pam's Party and Practical Tips a little over 3 years ago.  For the first year and a half, I was a teeny blog on a different host site trying to figure out what I was doing.  Two years ago I moved to Blogger, and things began to change.  You don't see a lot of pictures of me on the blog, because I am almost always the one behind the camera.  

I started this blog because of my love of planning parties, crafting and baking.  Now that my kid are getting older, they don't always want to have theme parties anymore.  This fact is extremely hard for a party planning mama.  Only my youngest still wants to party, and we have started planning her Art Party for this upcoming summer.   

I am the busy mom of 2 teens and an almost teen.  You won't see my oldest on the blog that often.  She helps with projects from time to time, but doesn't have her own series. (though I have asked her if she would like to do one)

Kyle loves to cooking, and often shares recipes in his series, Cooking with Kyle.  You can see one of his favorite recipes here.  I really enjoy encouraging him to cook, because it is a life skill that will help him throughout his life. 

I posted one of Kara's sassy pictures, because that is what she is at the moment... sassy!  She has her own series Crafting with Kara where she shares crafts for kids, made by a kid.  

Kara's latest post was posted last night, and has already proven to be quite popular. You can see how she made her Hanging Rainbow Flower here.

Each week I have a weekly linky party that starts on Friday nights.  I don't have a lot of rules, just for people to post what they would like to share.  Several days a week I will choose one post to be the Feature of the Day, and promote them on my social media links.   I would love for you to join us this week.   

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoy your visit to my blog and that you come back to visit again.
