Welcome to my 2011 Ultimate Blog Party post!
How do I describe Brimful Curiosities? Here's an acrostic:
Full to the Brim Giveaways
Unique Kids' Crafts
Life and Family
By the way, I'm Janelle, your hostess here at Brimful Curiosities. I'm a stay-at-home mom to two small kids. And, in case you didn't guess by the subtitle, I like to read children's books with my kids and blog about our reading experiences. We also spend time crafting, exploring the outdoors and doing all the normal things families do together like building huge block towers, conducting strange Santa experiments, and turning bananas into ghosts.
One of the regular features here is my Full to the Brim - Kid's Book Giveaway List, published each Friday. If you like children's books and entering giveaways, you'll probably want to take a look at my lists. Additionally, my kids and I often post a fun, book-related craft each week, and I try post a photo for Wordless Wednesday each week. Sometimes I post our favorite reads on the weekends. Other than that, my posts vary ranging from reviews to personal observations.
Today my family is watching the live stream video of the Decorah Eagles (http://www.ustream.tv/decoraheagles). The eggs should hatch anytime! (Update 3/4: A couple of the eggs have now hatched. The eaglets are adorable!) Now that's something to party about.
