Ultimate Blog Party 2009! Book Giveaway!

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

Welcome party goers! I am enjoying the party - but mostly visiting other's parties! I've been so busy I haven't taken time to host my own. Lately, I haven't had time to blog very much - I keep hoping that will change. But, as my kids get older it seems my life gets busier!
I hope you'll look around my blog a bit, and maybe come by and visit after the party winds down and we can get to know each other better. Please also stop by my other blog - Teen Lit Review - and enter to win a couple of teen books!

Some of my favorite past posts:
From An Overprotective Mom
Lost My Child - The Most Terrifying 20 Minutes of My Life
You Never Think

LEAVE A COMMENT HERE - if you'd like to win a copy of Shadow Baby by Alison McGhee. Drawing will be Monday, March 30th, around noon EST. Enjoy the party!
Description: Eleven-year-old Clara is struggling to find the truth about her missing father and grandfather and her dead twin sister, but her mother refuses to talk. When Clara begins interviewing Georg Kominsky--her elderly neighbor--she finds that he is equally reticent about his own concealed history. Precocious and imaginative, Clara invents versions of Mr. Kominsky’s past, just as she invents lives for the people missing from her own shadowy history. Her journey of discovery is at the heart of this beautiful story about unlikely friendship and communion, about discovering what matters most in life, and about the search to find the missing pieces of ourselves.

Just stopping by to meet you. Hope you will Though I am relativity new to blogging, I am loving all my new friends.

I am giving away my first EVER BLOG PRIZE.
I have a gift basket business and it is the most requested gift over the last 15 years.

From the comments I have already received, appears to be something a little different and something anyone could use.

I have been so touched by the comments that I have decided to give 2 boxes . They will be the $100 deluxe size.

I really do want to bless people!!! I want my blog to encourage others.

I have decided that giving is life at its BEST. The drawing will be Saturday!
