Ultimate Blog Party 2010

I am relatively new to the Mama Blogosphere and still have much to learn, other blogging Mamas to meet, and more tricks of the trade to master! Last night I was clicking on other blogs for Aloha Friday posts and came across a great idea: 

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

This is a great way to meet other bloggers, win great prizes, and advertise your own blog, or so I've heard. I plan on participating this year to see what all the fuss is about! It's hosted by 5 Minutes For Mom so go check it out! In the meantime you can win lots of great prizes!

For those of you who have stumbled across this blog from the Ultimate Blog Party website, welcome to the party! This is a natural parenting blog focusing on my own experiences as a SAHM of two little boys. I've written about arts and crafts, becomin "green", cloth wipe solution recipes and more! I am about to start reviewing and hosting giveaways within the next month, too, so if you like registering for giveaways, follow me! I will be mostly reviewing natural/organic products and/or baby related products, but there may be a few other goodies for the home thrown in there as well. Too bad I didn't find out about the party earlier or I would have planned to start the giveaways this week! Please look around and let me know what you think! I would love any feedback/recommendations since I am a new blogger so, be honest! :)

What are you bringing to the party? Well, in my pre-Mama days, I would have brought a bottle of vodka and some lemons, but nowadays most of the parties I attend are a little more child friendly. :) So, last night my 2.5 year old and my 4 year old niece created a Bunny House! It's beautiful in it's own way and was apparently very delicious because they pretty much destroyed it as soon as the pictures were taken! Enjoy the Bunny House. I'll probably make an additional post on the "How To"!
This is what happens when I tell Josiah to smile:

The little ones already starting to eat the house before I finished taking pics!

There are many great prizes up for grabs and there are many I would love to win. Here are the top three:
1. 12″ x 24″ Custom, hand~painted gallery style canvas for baby nursery or kid’s room {to be coordinated with winner’s bedding/decor} Provided by: October Belle Designs LLC
2. Prize package of preschool toys! Provided by: Hasbro
3.A $50 Bear Bucks Card to Build A Bear Workshop. Provided by: Liza Schwab

So seemingly innocent, these 2:
What really goes on behind the scenes!

Awe, your little boys are cuties! For having a new blog, I think it looks very nice. I've been blogging for years, but I'm not a die hard blogger so who knows if I actually know what I'm talking about or not though. LOL

Hope you have a great time at the party this week and meet lots of great bloggers and friends! Stop by and say hi when you get the chance.
