Kathy, I don't really need a printer but I love your blog and the diversity represented here. From family tales, to encouraging posts, to brutal honesty, to recommendations for new products (because I trust you to tell the truth)
I love the pictures you include with your posts as well.
You entire blog is great! Keep up the good work!

Charlotte Ann said...

Hello! kathy, I love your Blog and especially the pictures! You are doing a great job with it. I am already a follower of your Blog. How would I go about following on Facebook? I would love to follow you on Facebook. I could really use that photo printer I am so behind on my pictures. Thanks again for the giveaway and I cant wait to see who wins. Have a blessed day!

Charlotte Ann said...

Ok I figured out how to follow your Blog on Facebook. Thanks for all the product reviews as well!

wendy said...

I think the fact that you are transparent and honest is a really positive quality of your blog.
I've never heard of following a blog on Facebook...but now of course I'm going to have to figure that one out!

the monkey's mama said...

oh my goodness Kathy you really weren't kidding! this is a fabulous giveaway! I didn't know you were sponsoring it yourself...i hope you submit your giveaway link ALL over the web so that a lot of people can comment!

Okay you are doing sooo many things right! You are real, witty, honest, open, CARING, you make people feel at home with your blog posts and your warm comments, etc. You also have really interesting posts and they aren't always about your kids (like a lot of blogs--ahem--my Cutie Face blog!)

So YAY for you and your blog!

You are linking up at SITS and that is a good thing to do. However, I don't see the SITS button in your sidebar unless it's part of your rolling buttons.

Thanks for this giveaway. Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest!! Here's my Sharefest link to my Follow Me post: http://bit.ly/5hre0m

I can say that right now because I have exactly 23 seconds of peace and quiet.

Ask in a another 16 seconds and i will tell you another story :)

Somewhere In Between said...

What a great idea!! I hope companies see that you have a great readership. I also saw on another post from SITS today that there is a site you can go on to sign up for help with reviews and sponsors (it was a post by the person who commented below me - I'm Somewhere In Between). I hope that helps!

Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest!

Buttons and Bows said...

THe very first thing I believe you are doing right is that you have placed the fact that you are a Christian on your blog.
I think that your blog is crisp and clean and looks very nice.

I too am trying to get my blog off the ground and trying to become a reviewer. I think there are some things I can learn from your blog.

I recently won a printer, but my two oldest boys are in Bible college and this would be a great win for them.

Thanks so much for this giveaway and please stop by and visit my blog and please do follow me.
Thanks and God Bless.

Buttons and Bows said...

This comment is not for the drawing. I have five children also. Mine range in age from 21 down to 12. Life is full of adventures when you have a house full.
ONe thing no one ever prepared me for is that as fast as they came into the nest, that is how fast they leave.
Now, God's grace is sufficient, but I do not like mine flying away.
GOd has been good to me and I see he has been good to you too.

God Bless.

It is my first time here, and not just for the giveaway. I like blogs with product reviews and honest opinions, but right now I am loving the music!

Shooting Stars Mag said...

I love that you use pictures and seperate your paragraphs. It sounds silly, but believe me, I've seen blogs that don't have one or the other and it really turns me away. :)

Happy Holidays,

Hi! I just discovered you! One thing you are doing right on this blog is taking pictures. I am a mama of 5 (#6 is on the way) and I like to see real life pictures and not just text. You do a good job of that.

Also, I like the intentional planner.

Also, I live in California.

So basically I think you are really great and I can't wait to keep reading your posts! :)

I don't think you're whining at all and If you are you're doing it with humor...that's what you need to keep in your blog..the humor of everyday life.I cracked up reading your Christmas tree events. I always say if a husband and wife can get through putting up a Christmas tree or installing a ceiling fan without getting a divorce then they can pretty much get through anything. Keep up the good work
