The Ultimate Blog Party!!

Ultimate Blog Party 2008

Welcome to my blog!!

For those of you that don't know me, I'm Gloria, married and a mom to a teenage daughter. (Guess you probably saw that stuff in my About Me section, didn't you? Well I'm new to all this and a bit nervous so I'm just not sure what to say .:grins:. )

I started this blog way back in 2006 to showcase and give away my digital scrapbooking freebies. Then when my husband went to Iraq I kind of lost interest in a lot of my hobbies and the scrap freebies and the blog fell by the wayside. Well my husband is back safe and sound from Iraq, so with less things to worry about, I started picking up some hobbies again. I've dabbled a bit with the scrapping but my newest adventure is with photography. My husband bought me a Sony H9 for our anniversary. You'll see I have photos in most of my posts, I do a lot of practicing :)

I've gotten addicted to doing memes as you may have noticed. I think they are a good way to get to know people. Most of mine are photography related, but I have seen some others I've liked. I've never been tagged though, maybe I haven't been around long enough for that....

I've been working on making my blog better and more friendlier, so if you keep checking in, you'll see good things I hope.

So take a look around, meet Mischief my dog, and my daughter Leanna, and even see an OLD picture of me. (There are no recent pics of me on the site, I can't find any I like, lol.)

I'm looking forward to meeting all of you and hopefully making some new friends :)

Jump on over to 5 Minutes For Mom to catch up with the rest of the party goers. See you there :)

OH!! I forgot to tell you about the prizes! This party has some awesome prizes. Since I don't have any little ones running around some of the prizes wouldn't pertain to me, but here are some of my favorites.

91 - Burt's Bees Naturally ageless skincare, provided by Geggie.
58 - Customized 6 Week Fitness Plan, provided by Cindy Posey at Go Workout Mom.
113 - Arbonne Pampering Basket, provided by The Truest Thing.

I also would love to win any of these, in no particular order:
60, 70, 46, 21, 39, 45, 114, 124, and 152.

See you around, I'm going blog hopping!

It's nice to meet you. I'm so glad your hubby is back home, safe and sound. Please tell him I said "thanks" for serving his country!

I'm glad your husband is back safely, too. Mine is away serving right now, too. I can totally understand hobbies getting put by the wayside. Glad you are getting back to normal.

Happy Party!

I saw on your blog you have fibro, so do I (as well as MS), so we have something in common!! We can swap stories!

Hi - I'm a paper scrapper, I don't know anything about digital scrapbooking, but it sounds like it could be addicting!

Hi Gloria!

How are you? I'm so glad you joined the party! Don't be nervous, we're a FRIENDLY bunch and I'm so glad I stumbled onto your blog.

I clicked over and saw the picture of you and your brother - aren't you two cute!! Wouldn't it be great if we could hang on to that innocence?

Have a wonderful time at the party!

Thanks for stopping by Teen Lit Review. I love taking pictures, too, although I wouldn't necessarily call it a hobby. Most of my posts have pictures, too. Well, on my personal blog anyway:

BTW, our daughters' have the same name, but I call my daughter Scamp in blog world. Please stop by Scamp's Place if you get a chance.

Happy Blog Party. Hello, Gloria. Thank you for stopping by Go Workout Mom. I think taking up photography would be so neat. Maybe one of these days. It's nice to meet you.

Wendy said...

Thanks for stopping by.
I've seen a couple of other women who do digital scrapbooking too and it looks interesting. I may have to give it a try.
I'm going to have to stop back by when I can read a little more.

Hi and lovely to meet you.

We share a few passions - digi-scrapping and photography. I see you take part in lots of photography memes - I need to check some of those out. I sometimes do Her Space : My Space - have you seen it?

I have never created any digital items though - that is great that you can do that too.

Hello, nice to meet you. Welcome to the party, even though we are coming to the end. I scrapbook too, but not digi... hopefully I will see you again soon.

Sprittibee said...

I've given up trying to get to every blog. :) I love photography and scrapbooking, too! Your blog title caught my eye in that long list! Nice to run in to you at the party before the clock strikes 12!

Better get back to my carriage before it turns in to a pumpkin!
