The Ultimate BLOG party

5 Minutes for Mom is once again hosting their annual Ultimate Blog Party. It’s an opportunity to get to know bloggers from all over the world that you probably wouldn’t have met otherwise! There are already lots of great bloggers participating so I hope you can join us!

For those of you who may not know me, let me give you a few quick highlights:

  • I’m a fairly recent transplant to the U.P. I love to quilt, cook, read, garden, write, swap, meet new people and learn new things.
  • This blog began as a place to vent about a real estate nightmare and the forced remodeling of this 115 year old house, but quickly developed into a place for creative juices and ideas to take root.

On my sidebar you can choose what you’d like me to make you for party refreshments. There are lots of delicious recipes to choose from. Enjoy them. They all go really well with any spiked punch or soda.

Thanks for stopping by. Come on in and take a look around my place. I’ve made some great blogging buddies, and I really want to make some more new friends! Don’t forget to please leave me a comment so I can visit your blog! Let’s Get it Started in Here! Then you can party-hop over to 5 Minutes for Mom for some more celebrations!

Have you seen the terrific list of prizes for this year’s Ultimate Blog Party? It’s hard to narrow it down but here are my top picks:

Thanks for hosting a party. Keep having fun.

I don’t quilt yet, but I plan on teaching myself soon. I have lots of other projects to handle first.


Hi there! Nice to meet you! Hope you’re enjoying the party and all the visitors. Stop by and say hi if you get a chance. I’m looking forward to reading more once the party-hopping has died down. Only 1150 to go!


I see you mentioned the U.P.! Are you referring to MI? I’m a Yooper by marriage – DaHubby was born in Escanaba and raised in da Soo! LOL He’s such a Yooper and my in-laws such Scandinavians that we have Swedish potato sausage for Christmas! LOL

Nice to meet ya, eh? *wink*


Hi! It’s nice to “meet” you! I do a lot of those weekly memes too. 🙂 If you want to visit my party the easiest way to find me is by clicking #9 on the 5MM linky. 🙂


So glad to see recipes! Thanks for sharing them. Just wanted to swing by and say hello! My party post is up if you are mingling!
Have fun partyin’ it up!
