*edited again to add: I have redone this post because it's throwing off the layout of the blog. Let me know if you want one and I will email the code to you! Sorry! technical difficulties.

*Edited to Add* OK! OK! JUST HAVE 'EM!!! :)

Welcome to "WIN A SKIN" FRIDAY!

how it works:

On Friday (as soon as I get around to it) I post a handful of backgrounds (or SKINS for your blog) that I've made along with the codes (EASY to Insert!). But here's the thing. The codes will only be available on Friday! Come Saturday, they will no longer be posted. DadaDA! The CATCH! Muahaha!

"Show Some Love" Monday!!!

How  it works:

1.I let you know about a blog that I like,

2.you visit that blog,

3.if you like that blog too, let that blogger know by leaving a comment!

Not too Painful. I know you can do it!

The purpose is to increase your blogging network and learn a thing or two! I will be featuring blogs who WANT recognition (by my own interpretation). If your blog is just for your family and friends, I respect that, and will not feature you (and just to be safe, you should probably let me know. I wont be offended - Promise!).

And NOW! Go check out:

InspireMe Crafts

I'm not a particularly crafty individual... but I want to be! These crafts look simple enough and FUN! Something I would actually DO! (And that is saying something!)

Maybe for a Wednesday Challenge, I'll challenge ya'll to find a craft on a blog and make it! Hmm... maybe....

What a Mom Says in 24 Hours...

I haven't had to threaten my boys over an ipod... yet... but my DH on the other hand... hehe. No groundings either... yet. Oh, the things I get to look forward to! My own mother has probably used 75% of these lines. on me. Though I don't remember ever being asked if I live in a barn...







Wednesday Challenge!

Wednesday challenges are designed with the intent to stretch and build your character, learn more about yourself, and have fun doing it!

Do it!

Report. (Share your experience by blogging about it, and adding your post link to the Linkies, or leaving your "resport" in the comments).

This week we'll start with some "open-ended" ones...

a) Do something out of your comfort zone!

b) Try something new!

c) Do something you've been wanting to do for a long time... but just haven't "gotten around to yet".

Don't forget to record your experience and something you learned about yourself! HAVE FUN!

Easy Breezy

Unfortunately (for you) we (and by "we" I mean "I") have not had any crazy/exciting/emotional/dramatic events or experiences lately. Boo. I know!

You would think that with all the changes going on, DH (Dear Husband) and I would have had a blog-worthy spat, or something that would equal it in entertainment.

So sorry to disappoint.

Ok. No. I'm not.

Life is surprisingly mellow. And by surprisingly I mean, we're moving again, so one would assume we would both be on edge and our patience wearing thin. Alas, it is not. This is not our first time at this rodeo. Plus we don't have much to move. haha. For once.

But I promise if I have a psychological or emotional breakdown (once I can pull myself together) I will share it! 

Blue Eyes and Brown Eyes (code names for my darling boys... get used to it. hehe) have been really good. Taking naps on time and learning to entertain one another, which gives me time to... yes, blog; among other things.

Come back tomorrow. It is the first ever Wednesday Challenge! As if you need another thing on your to-do list... but this will be FUN and completely voluntary! Completely.

Basically how it works is

1.I let you know about a blog that I like,

2.you visit that blog,

3.if you like that blog too let that blogger know by leaving a comment!

Not too Painful. I know you can do it!

The purpose is to increase your blogging network and learn a thing or two! I will be featuring blogs who WANT recognition (by my own interpretation). If your blog is just for your family and friends, I respect that, and will not feature you (and just to be safe, you should probably let me know. I wont be offended - Promise!).

Okay for my first Featured BLOG...

drum role please...

Naomi Masina Photography

She is an amazing photographer and if you haven't already fallen in love with her work - you will. She has inspired me in my pursuit of becoming a better photographer and person. Show her some Love!!!

Identity Crisis

I changed my header, title of my blog and URL. Though "blog addict." was humorous... it wasn't quite me. And I can't promise I wont change it again.  Until I settle on something I LOVE, be prepared. I will most likely stick with this URL though.You've been warned.

Another one!

Isn't it cute! You want it? Let me know!

Homemade

Yep, I made them myself! I even made matching headers! I'm working on a few more. Any requests? I'm working on a few more details and then I'll post the codes to use them on your own blog!! What color schemes do you suggest?

Post numero uno.

My first post on my new blog. How exciting! This isn't in all actuality my original blog. Oh no. The blog I've been committed to for over a year is now Private. Invitation only. (But don't be offended if you can't view it. Only 100 people can. Which kinda bites). So I made another one. This one. One that you can view by open invitation! If you enjoy yourself, please come back! Feel free to "follow me" (I love seeing how many people enjoy hearing from me as much as I love talking... err... typing). This is the beginning of a beautiful bloggy-friendship! I just know it!
