What is your site's URL?
Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
I'm a former 7th grade Science teacher turned stay-at-home mom. I am married to my college sweetheart and have a beautiful daughter named Riley.
Since staying home, I've learned about many new things, such as parenthood, contests & sweepstakes, and finally, blogging. I am interested in reviewing products and hosting the very giveaways that I search the web for and love so dearly. I also love to cook, create handmade crafts of all kinds, as well as being a total technology junkie!
Lastly, I am involved in starting a home business which would both manufacture and sell an invention that I've patented, called Toothpaste 2 Go.
I've just recently started this blog and so unfortunately, I don't have much traffic yet. I'm looking to make invaluable friends and contacts here, so that hopefully I can learn as much from you as I hope to pass on about me.
What is your blogging philosophy?
I believe that blogging is a very special and unique way to share a piece of yourself with people around the world. I believe that this should be done in an honest, forthright and ethical way, so that no one's hard work is stolen and so that no bad feelings can arise between people.
I have been blogging since...

home. You see, somewhere along the way I got it into my head that I

would never serve Riley any store bought baby food. I had always heard

how expensive that stuff was and how easy making your own baby food

really is. Also, I…

eggs this year and of course, the name…

Blog Tables As promised in an earlier tip, I wanted to write a post dedicated to creating tables in your blog. You would be surprised at how much I use this valuable tool to

get things to look just right and maximize my space on sidebars, footers

and even in posts. What you can accomplish with the use of tables is

amazing and I think it is a tool that every blogger should be familiar

with...so here we go! (As a matter of fact, I used…
