Today the party get's started! To kick things off on my blog make sure you leave a comment on my blog for a chance at winning my cool boredom buster giveaway:
Summer is just around the corner and if you have school-aged children, you know it will only be a matter of time before your kids start proclaiming "I'm bored!"; "There's nothing to do!"; "What is there to do?" I have six kids and I've heard all of these and more! After the kids tire of their bikes or get home from the pool, their energy levels are still as high as ever, give their imaginations a work out with this great book chucked full of fun-filled projects!
To enter, simply leave a comment on this post with a link back to your own blog so I can stop by, meet you, and if you win, congratulate you and let you know how to contact me so I can ship you your cool prize. The contest will run from May 12-16, 2008. A winner will be randomly selected from all comments left on this post on the final day of the blog party (May 16, 2008).
I am a mommy of six. I have three biological children of my own, and three step-children. Each of my children, no matter how they came into my life, are a true blessing! My eldest stepdaughter will be 11 in less than a month, my other two step children (a set of fraternal twins) turn 10 in the fall. My son is 7, my eldest daughter is 5, and my youngest daughter is 2.
I have always had a love for creating and making things. My sister used to get so angry with me for "making messes" with bits of cut paper and glue. I was always coloring, painting, shaping, drawing, cuting, or glueing something together! I turned my love of "mess making" into a career of fine art and graphic design. I've worked as a graphic artist and then as an art director for the past 15 plus years. Even after having children, my creative talents never slowed down. My creative endeavours simply morphed into something even better! With children I've enjoyed molding and designing birthday cakes for each of my children at every birthday; I've enjoyed costuming my kids for plays, for Halloween, and school concerts; I've made party invitations that rock; videos of performances; lots of cool games and art projects; and more! Having children has enhanced my creativity, never stifled it!
