The Carnival Soiree & some Fabulous things

As most of you know, I'm always ready for a party & one has been much needed in my world lately!  So I'm taking a second to give BIG hugs & a shout out to Lisa over at Faerie Enchantment for hosting a lovely, Carnival themed bloggy soiree.

It was ANOTHER snow day for my girls, so they spent a good part of the day creating things and coming up with ideas to participate.  It was so fun watching them get excited about it.  We practiced our juggling skills, popcorn eating skills (does that count...you can get popcorn at a carnival right?), we baked & decorated sweets...


...painted faerie wings, & we even had a little visit from someone special...


...but we don't want to spill all the beans quite yet... 
...So be sure to mark your calendars for the 14th & get ready to have some fun!  Click on the links up there (or the button on my right-hand sidebar) to check out what it's all about & don't forget to play around her blog a bit...she makes the CUTEST CREATIONS!

And...her latest book, Altered Art Circus, just came out February 1st & it's on the top of my wish list, woo hoo.

-------------------------------------------------

Junque Drawer Chick is having a fabulous giveaway...so hop on over there to meet Ms. Cora & Ms. Willie.  You'll be glad you did (especially if you win ;-)  Don't forget who gave ya the hook up!

-------------------------------------------------

You must check out THIS VIDEO, from WorkoutMommy, if you need a good laugh!  It's only 25 seconds long and has a cute lil' (or big) fur-ball in it...what more could you ask for?

-------------------------------------------------

Click here for a magical post from the wonderful Miss V, over at 'A Fanciful Twist.'  She has the most positive outlook on life & always keeps me coming back for more. 

-------------------------------------------------

Last but not least, my wonderful SITSta, Tiffany, from The R Family Diaries, is giving away not 1, BUT 2 $100 Gift Cards to Target, just for checking out Fishful Thinking...a wonderful site with 'Activities, interactive tools, and helpful tips for keeping kids smiling through the ups and downs of life.'  Looks like a great site, especially for parents, so I'm off the check that out a bit more.

Oh & 'The Secret is in the Sauce,' had a makeover...what do you think?

------------------------------------------------

Okay, you've got some visits to make, so I'll let you go now...have a happy time!

Thanks for all the great links. I like SITS' makeover. It's moer pleasing to the eye!

I wanted to tell you THANK YOU so much for the adorable gift tags. My husband opened them and threw away the packaging with your address, or I would be sending you a thank you card. Anyway, thank you again. I love them!!!
