Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday!
I started this Blog a year ago for a couple of reasons,
so First I want to Thank you for hanging in there with me,
as I have talked about my Business,
my Homeschooling experience,
and our Family Life :)

From 2011, I realize I have a lot of silent readers...
I want to reward You better,
and Make it more Fun for Both of Us,
Being Creative to keep my Sanity

 My New Year's Resolution # 5
Change the way I do Giveaways
I'll make an honest effort....

 SO...  I'm changing the way I do my giveaways
and I hope this is a Win-Win solution for both of us.
I will still have my giveaways during the Month 
of My Favorite Things (November)
and on Green & Clean/ Earth Day (April).

In addition,
When On any page I post about a product,
and that post gets the # of comments to be double the amount of the item cost... I will give it away. I will announce on my blog when that has happened & post an entry form.

(I should probably say this now...
FYI I have not been given nor have I been given any item to review on my blog...
I purchase each and everyone of them.
(Unless I state otherwise.)
Which means all the opinions on my blog... *gasp*... are my own.)
