The Ultimate Blog Party Begins ~ 2008

Ultimate Blog Party 2008

Welcome to the Ultimate Blog Party and to my blog. My name is Ginny. I have been married for 10.5 years. We have two gorgeous daughters, they are 6 & 10. I've been a stay at home mom since January 2002 & love it. Well I guess I'm actually a work at home mom because I do sell on Ebay (sometimes full time, sometimes part time). Before that I worked as a pharmacy technician & really enjoyed it. When I got pregnant with my 2nd, my boss didn't take it well. That is part of what finally made me leave. She had plans for me & baby messed them up, lol. I would like to go back to it one day though.

I love to read & scrapbook. Scrapbooking is actually the reason I started to blog, but it has since evolved into a lot more. I really had no idea how many great people I would "meet" blogging & have made some great friendships. I'm hoping to make even more with this fab blog party! You can also find me on Myspace.

I have a few other blogs that I post to occasionally, feel free to check them out ~ Scrapbook blog, Book Blog & Photo Blog.

Here are my girls! During mid-winter break they made pipe cleaner animals, that is what they are holding :) I lost all my pictures recently, so I'm limited on what I can post.

Oh no! You lost your pictures!! That's terrible! I'd be so crushed if that happened to me. I'm a huge picture person.

I've been meaning to get into scrapbooking - my husband thinks I'm nuts, but it looks like so much fun and I really want to leave something pretty and fun behind.

Your girls are gorgeous!!

It was nice to meet you and have fun at the party!

Hi, lovely to "meet" you.

I love digital scrapbooking, and that is what led me to start my blog a year ago.

As part of the blog party I am giving away a voucher for a digi-scrap store.

Enjoy the party!

I figure someday I'll have the time for scrapbooking. In the mean time, fabric and yarn take to much of my time ;)

Have fun!
