Ultimate Blog Party

Hey! So glad you stopped by today to say hello. Come on in and stay awhile, have a look around, I tidyed up just for you! For those who regulary read my blog (thanks mom and dad) Go check out the Ultimate Blog Party! So much fun and a chance to win lots for really great prizes!
Ultimate Blog Party 2010

I always find these introduction/welcome posts so hard to write...its seems like a bit of a personal ad, KWIM? Trying to put your best "face" on and hope that other bloggers will like you from a two minute visit. Speed dating blogger style :)

My name is Raine and I have been blogging for almost 4 years. I am a 27 years old and a SAHM. I love journaling about my children and our adventures together. My favorite subject to write about is my kids, as you can easily tell by have a quick peek around.
My blog is functional, but pretty basic and it could really use a design overhall. Anyone willing to give me one? Anyone...No, oh well doesent hurt to ask :) For more about me check out my 47 questions and answers meme

I have been married for nearly 7 years to my wonderful husband
(click here to read 10 reasons I STILL want to be married)and together we have two beautiful children, Naomi (3) and Nathan (10 months). My life is full of playing dress up, coloring, changing diapers, and trips to park. I wouldn't change it for the world.

I own a small handmade jewelery business called The Glass Polkadot Co. It keeps me busy and is a great creative outlet for me. You can see what I am creating here. Join my facebook group and you can stay up to date on all the latest designs and news ! I'm even giving away a necklace for the party! Check out the UBP contest page and look for #10 (US and Canada prizes).

I'm heading back to the main UBP page to go pick out the prizes that I would love to win, why don't you go and do the same. Then I'm going to hop around the blogsphere and say "hello". Can't wait to meet some new friends!

Thanks for stopping by. It was so nice to meet you. I would love it if you would leave a comment telling me you were here! Have a great day!

Update: After much debating I have narrowed down my list for prefered prizes

Any gift cards or cash:

Hi Raine!

Stopping by from 5 Minutes For Mom's UBP2010, I'm fashionably late as per usual, but that's not stopping me!

You have a terrific blog. I dabble a bit in blog design, if you don't win, I'd be happy to see what I can do for you...

Thank you, I've really enjoyed my visit.

I am now your newest follower. Come and visit me at Brea's Befuddled Brain and if you like what you see, let me know.

Also maybe you can help me achieve my goal of reaching 100 followers by my birthday on 2nd May. If I make it, I'm doing a give-away to celebrate!

I hope to see you soon!

It's so nice to 'meet' you! I'm Kristen and I'm the lucky recipient of your giveaway for UBP if I'm correct! I just sent in my info to 5 minutes for Mom...not sure what else to say but thank you so very much!

"To laugh often and much, to win
the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false
friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, or a garden patch... to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This
is to have succeeded!" - Emerson
