Ultimate Blog Party 2010

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

Welcome Ultimate Blog Party Friends!! I am so excited to be participating in this super fun online party hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom.

My name is Alicia and I am a 38 year old Stay-At-Home Mom to three wonderful kids ages 8, 7 and 5. I have been married for almost 20 years and our family lives in the northern suburbs of Atlanta. Before having children I owned an event planning company where I specialized in social events, especially weddings.

Now, my days are filled with homeschooling and I am a demonstrator for Stampin Up!, a rubber stamping company. My blog is all about the joy I find in our everyday life. I began this blog almost two years ago as a way to keep track of our homeschool journey. I thought it would be a great way to see how far we had come over the school year, remember all the fun projects we had completed, and document the fieldtrips we had taken.

This blog has definitely grown from that point … I love sharing everything about our life – holidays, vacations, recipes, craft projects, my walk with God, and just our everyday life in the south. I love photography and many of my posts have lots of photographs. I found keeping this blog was an easy way to have a complete scrapbook done of our year.

Now, what kind of party host would I be if I did not ask a little about you … leave me a comment and tell me a little about your blog. I would love to stop by, visit and learn more about you!!

I am giving away two door prizes – a rubber stamping package which includes a Stampin Up! stamp set, paper and ink (just a few items to get you started on one of my favorite hobbies) and my second door prize is a box of all occasion cards handcrafted by me. I hope you will join in on the fun. I will be using a random number generator to choose each winner. To enter all you need to do is (just choose one or all three of the following – each time you do leave me a new comment to increase your chances of winning):

1. Leave me a comment and let me know a little about your blog. (I promise to stop by and say “hi”)
2. Become a follower of my blog and leave me a comment and let me know.
3. Just say “hi” and be sure to leave me your email so I can track you down if you win!

Also, be sure to hop on over to and register for all the great prizes that are being given away in this the Ultimate Blog Party 2010!!

  1. I'm a homeschooling mom too and I originally started blogging as a way of keeping a homeschool journal and sending pics to the grandparents. But then I started really enjoying it and I realized how much better my mood is if I'm writing every day so now I have a blog where I write about whatever interests me that day and I get so much out of it.

    Great meeting you. You'll have a blast at the UBP!

  2. Nice to meet you! I love your photos, especially since my husband, toddler and I are heading to Disney World next month.

    Have fun at the party, and I'm following your blog!

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I absolutely love yours! I am looking to learn more about homeschooling. I am thinking of doing that this time around. I am definitely going to follow your blog.


  4. I love the stamping idea, it might be a hobby I will have to look into!
    And it's a great idea to start a home schooling blog.
    My son is 4 and I'm still considering homeschooling!!
    I hope you are enjoying the blog party!!

  5. Great getting to know you! My main blogs are Scrappy Gifts and Crafty Mommy Diva. I have so much scrapbook stuff, I figured I could get rid of some of it by making scrappy gifts for people. Then I started Crafty Mommy Diva to learn new crafts.
    I'd love to win either of your prizes!

  6. Hi, Stranger! I haven't seen you commenting lately — or maybe I've been so crazy busy I forget who comments about ten seconds after I read them. Kind of like how I forget what I walked in the kitchen for by the time I get there. lol

    I enjoyed stopping by and seeing your family photos. They made me want to go back to Disney.

  7. Great to meet you and thanks for coming by the Family Trifecta.
