I'm In! - Ultimate Blog Party 2009

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

One of my favorite blogs to swing by now and then is 5 Minutes for Mom. This week (March 20-27) the Ultimate Blog Party is on and you are invited to join in the fun. If you are ready to do a little partying hopping please check out their website some time during the week!

Hi, I'm Janelle, your hostess at Brimful Curiosities. I have two young kiddos, an amazing hubby and two lazy cats. I'll provide you with a lint roller on your way out if necessary. Told you not to wear the black pants.

Here at Brimful Curiosities, we like to party, too. So this week I've got some AWESOME children's book giveaways lined up just for you. Here's a partial list of what is to come. Check back here often and enter the Brimful Curiosities giveaways as they go live:

Bee & Me Review and Book Giveaway (This book was listed on the New York Times Bestseller children's list and is an amazing ANIMOTION picture book. A must have this spring) Contest Ends 4/6/09

Silver Dolphin Books - Review and Book Giveaway (Choice of any Silver Dolphin brand book - books for children of all ages) Contest Ends 4/6/09

Start Talking Book Review and Giveaway (Scheduled to post Fri 3/27)

Also, if this is your first time here, please take a look at my "Full to the Brim" posts for children's book giveaways occurring in bloggyland! You are sure to find a contest to enter there!


I'm not the only one divvying up the prizes. The fabulous gals at 5 Minutes for Mom have lined up some super prizes for participants. My top three favorites:
#1 — $100 gift certificate to either Pedal Cars and Retro or A Rocking Horse To Love Provided by: 5 Minutes for Mom
#58 – Kitchen Aid Artisan Stand Mixer Provided by: Moms Who Think
#22 — $50 gift certificate to Target Stores Provided by: Beginner Baby Blog

Here are some more prizes I'd love, but really any on the full prize list at 5 Minutes for Mom would be great to win:
#19, #21, #26, #91, USC 56, #44, #68, INTL 30, INTL 45, USC 34

So what about you? Have a fav prize? Are you participating or holding your own contest? Let me know and I'll make sure to visit your blog. Party on!

Thanks for stopping by Wishing Penny - sorry I haven't visited Brimful lately. I've had so much going on I sometimes feel like my brain is melting.
I think now things should start to melloe out and I'll hopefully get back to normal.
Have fun at the party :))

So glad I got to visit. Love the many reviews that are here. Lots of time and effort put into this great site. LOVE the cake at the top. I must confess, it reminds me of the Barbie cake I had around my 8th birthday. Glad to have met you!
