Ultimate Blog Party 2009!



5 Minutes for Mom is having the Ultimate Blog party and we're all invited!!

Welcome to those visiting from the blog party-thanks for stopping by!! My name is Dawn and I'm an elementary school teacher who is now home with my 5 kids-4 girls and one boy. They range in age from 12 to 1 so I've got it all-the tween to the first birthday!! They're getting ready to move on to junior high, take their first steps and everything in between! Life is busy-right now I have 3 playing softball/tball and 2 playing spring soccer-but it's fun!

I haven't been blogging that long but I've found that I enjoy it. It's my little bit of me time each day. I started my blog when I was one of YCMT Thrifty Under Fifty-a wonderful experience for more than one reason. I love reading other blogs-the blog world is a wonderful, caring and sharing community-I've already learned so much and gotten so many great ideas. I hope that with my blog I can one day help someone out with creativity, an idea, recipe or just something that works for me and my family.

There are some great prizes being given away at the party-check them out. If I won, my top picks would be


Kitchen Aid Artisan Stand MixerProvided by: Moms Who Think

Gift certificate to Target Stores Provided by: Shoot-Me-Now , Agoosa , Beginner Baby Blog , Little Miss Hannah and Mummy Deals

$25 gift certificate to Happy Panda Provided by: Happy Panda


$20 gift certificate to Ladybug Limited Provided by: Ladybug Limited

I'd also love 50,79,99,104,118,intl 50,usc 11 and the list could go on and on :)

I've already visited some new blogs and am looking forward to visiting more. Leave me a comment and I'll visit you too!

Thank you so much for stopping by. I look forward to reading your blog! I've only been piecing quilts about three years. I've tied a lot before with yarn but this was something I always wanted to do. When my daughter got married I decided it was time. I have four kids, one married who has given me a beautiful granddaughter, one son who is getting married this summer, one son who is going on an LDS mission in late summer, and one who is a sophomore in high school and just started to drive! Life is hectic but soooo good! Thanks again for stopping by! Cindy
