Mommyfest 2008 Blog Party

Mommyfest is a big event held from May 12 - 16th this year. You can blog hop around and meet other mommy bloggers. There are giveaways as well.

My name is Ginny. I originally started blogging to document my scrapbooking, but it has evolved into what my blog is today.

I am a stay at home mom of 2 daughters, ages 10 & 6. My girls are in 1st grade & 5th grade. I will be a mom of a middle school girl in a few short months, oh my! I've been married over 10 years, and we have lived in Michigan all our lives.

I also sell on Ebay for some extra money. This usually goes to paying for my daughters dance classes. My oldest has been dancing for 7 years, takes tons of classes & competes. My youngest is taking 5 classes and has been dancing for 4 years. We spend most of our time at the dance studio :)

I love to read {mainly mysteries}, scrapbook & other crafts, entering contests and of course blogging & browsing the web. I'm not much of an outdoorsy person, but I do love the beach.

Can't wait to meet even more great bloggy moms, thanks for stopping by!

It's nice to meet you! Great blog :)

I can't wait until I can sign on my little girl for dance - she loves dancing around the house. Her idea of dancing right now is spinning in circles.

I am also big into reading. What are some of your favorite authors? I just started a reading challenge for myself - so check it out. I would love to have some people participate too. :)

Tiffany said...

It is nice to meet you. When my daughter was 3 she begged to be in dance. So we put her in and it only lasted one month. She told me she could dance at home. She would pull her little outfit on and off. She loves to hear that story again and again. Your girls are beautiful. Please come by for a visit.

Just stopping in from Mommyfest.

I remember dance class. It was my favorite thing in the world when I was little. My mom even installed a bar and a mirror in my room so I could practice!

I have boys so no pink tutus for me now.(I mean I could try, but I think they would protest!)

Nice to meet you!

HI Ginny, very nice to meet you. I too love scrapbooking. I've never done the digital thing, but I have lots of albums and love getting lost in designing a layout and then attaching everything. I'm mom to two girls and two four legged guys.
