2013 Ultimate Blog Party

Ultimate Blog Party 2013
There's a Party Goin' On!

5 Minutes for Mom is hosting their annual Ultimate Blog Party
and we are ready to party around here!

The Ultimate Blog Party is all about meeting new fun blogs,
new fun friends, and building this awesome blog community.
So hang around, check things out here, and
then head on over to the UBP to meet others too.

Love you! photo 182772_10150145211746276_1404549_n.jpg

My name is Lee.  I'm a wife of nearly twelve years.
My husband and I have two biological kids and one foster.
They range in age from 18 months to 7 years.
And boy are we busy!

Nothing has stretched me as parenting these three.
And I wouldn't have it any other way!

Creative2xmom is dedicated to all things Mommy, ...
and somethings not.

I love throwing fun parties for my kids on a budget.

And I love books.
That's why every month, Creative2xmom hosts Bookmarks.
Bookmarks is a montly link-up for discussing the books we're reading.
And discovering new treasures.

You'll find all kinds of creative ideas here.
From peppermint play-doh to easy meal planning tips,

Creative2xmom is all about a real mom,
living a real life,
raising real kids,

So what's a party without a prize?
During the UBP, I'll be giving away a copy of Shepherding a Child's Heart by Tedd Tripp.
This is one of my favorite parenting books that I return to again and again.
It's be invaluable in my parenting journey.

Just leave a comment below telling me what speaks
"Creativity" or "Motherhood" to you.

One entry per person.
Entries will be open until April 13th at midnight.
One winner will be chosen at random and announced/notified on April 15th.
Don't forget to leave your email as well so I can contact you.

For additional entries:
Don't forget to follow by email or Facebook.
One additional entry per method.

You can also join the Creative2xmom community
by following on Pinterest and Youtube.
I share all kinds of ideas through each venue,
and you don't want to miss a thing.

So pull up a chair, pour yourself some coffee,
and stay awhile.
I'm so glad you found us.

Hi, it's great to meet you! Your book linkup sounds like a lot of fun. I'll be following your blog so I can (hopefully) participate in the linkup.

I already own a copy of "Shepherding a Child's Heart" so please don't enter me in the giveaway.

I'm visiting from UBP, and I like the sound of books and children parties as well a Christian faith. My kids are grown, but I'm always looking at kid's ideas for my 7 grandchildren. And I love books. I hope you'll consider linking up to my new blog hop starting May 3rd on Bible Love Notes. Bless you,

Dusty (To the Moon and Back) said...

I have that book and I LOVE that you have a link up to share about books we are reading! That alone sold me on your site! :D I look forward to reading more from you!

Hi Lee! I'm Amy from UBP2013! I love your bookmarks linkup. I will have to join in. My kids are older 21,20 and 16, but I read Shepherding A Child's Heart way back when and it was a wonderful help. So glad you are sharing it with others. Enjoy the party, Amy

Another grandma here - I enjoyed reading your post and visiting via the Ultimate Blog Party 2013! So fun to meet another LEGOs fan. My grandkids love them too!

Have a blessed week and a lovely party - by the by - I followed you on Pinterest but wanted to let you know that your Facebook and YouTube links are broken. :) I know how frustrating that is as well :) :) :)

Sarah Avila said...

Stopping by from the party! I love that book too (no need to enter me, I already own it)! It is a terrific book for child training.
I'm currently reading a similar book called The Christian Parenting Handbook that comes out in May. It's a great book that I know I will be going back to time and time again! There's a link to it at the top of my blog.

Loved the Star Wars party - especially the Death Star pinata!

This is my 6th year with UBP. It's great to visit new bloggers, as well as my old blog friends.
I participate in Menu Plan Monday linky party. Menu planning is fun and saves us money.
