Ultimate Blog Party 2009

Hi everyone!

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

The yearly UBP festivities are hard to ignore if you're a blogger...and if you are not familiar with the Ultimate Blog Party, then join me and thousands of others online as we celebrate our "blog-iness".

Thanks for visiting the Scrap Princess blog. I am a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator so I tend to post alot about stamping. I am also a Christian stay-at-home mom to one {adorable} 5-year old (the Lil Scrap Princess). My husband and I have been married almost 10 years...he is one {fabulous} guy who works at home for a large telecommunications company (think of the sponsor mentioned when you text your vote for your favorite American Idol ;) doing some super cool computer development.

I am originally from a super small town in Western Pennsylvania {Mt. Pleasant} which boasted a record number of 4,000+ residents when I graduated from high school in 1995. I like to call it my starting point - definitely too small for my city girl liking - but it grounded me and I'm proud of Mt. Pleasant. It has that special olde-time charm about it and the people are so nice. It would remind you of the towns you see in the movies where everyone knows your name, your business & would call your parents the second they saw you in any kind of trouble....lol. It was fun growing up there but I always wanted to travel. I moved to Connecticut 14 years ago, fresh outta high school :)

I scrapbook, therefore I am broke. I scrapbook everyday {well almost} and am usually found working on graphic design projects when I am not scrapbooking or stamping. I love to write and contribute to several blogs & websites. In my free time {hahaha ok so that doesn't truly exist}, I also volunteer at Church and the Home & School Association, where our daughter goes. I coordinate our Moms of Preschoolers (MOPS) group here in the neighboring town, Wethersfield. I teach at the local community college & parks & recreation department (scrapbooking classes).....well now this sounds like a resume. Anyways, I'm busy & love it!

Please leave a comment & join me in celebrating the Ultimate Blog Party 2009! I'm so glad you stopped by....grab a cup of coffee, get inspired & make some new friends!

I'd love to win ANY prize but my favorites are:

1) Kitchen-Aid Artisan Stand Mixer from Moms Who Think.
2) $100 HomeGoods Gift Card from HG Openhouse
3) $50 Target Gift Certificate from Shoot-Me-Now


And if my top three picks are already chosen, I’d love any of the following (in order of preference):
22, 21, 56, 118, 127, INTL 11, INTL 23, INTL 28, USC 15, USC 58 or any other blog designs & general gift cards :)

Just blog hopping during the party and stopped by to say hi. Haven't tried scrapbooking yet but sounds like fun. Maybe there is a way to combine my love of beading with scrapbooking. Have fun at all the parties and I invite you to visit mine as well. ~Brenda

Patty P said...

Nice to meet you! I'm an art teacher and former Creative Memories consultant so I understand your scrapbooking dilemma.

Robin ~ PENSIEVE said...

Oooo, you ARE a stamper! Thanks for your visit to my blog (Pensieve) and I DO hope you're lucky enough to win! I need to bookmark your site for card ideas...you're VERY good at it!

LOL, I was a SU demonstrator for a while, too...but only did so to get the discount. After spending HUNDREDS of dollars, I decided it wasn't worth it for me! (me no likey the demonstrator part...not organized enough to make it worthwhile!).

Linda said...

Hi. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I like scrapbooking, but I am waaay behind. I will try to catch up this summer.

I hope you remember to pass my site on to your uncle, and I hope he is improving on a gluten-free diet.

Carla said...

Hi! Happy UBP! I stopped by to say hi. I love your cards and scrapbook pages, very creative! Hope you'll stop by and say hi back!

Christina said...

Christina - xristya@rock.com - This is my first UBP and it's fun! Right now I'm an avid blog reader rather than a blogger because my work involves a lot of writing! But I love to find new and interesting sites and yours IS one, I love the stamp with the bird on it, and your story of growing up in a small town but being a big city-type gal! I too am broke always as a starving artist/poet/writer, but as long as we enjoy life, that's what's important, isn't it?

Not Your Average Girl said...

Hi! Mine name is Elisabeth. Nice to meet you on UBP--2009!! You have a pretty cool blog here! You can visit mine@adifferentkindagirl.blogspot.com
It's so nice to meet other Christians, and homeschool moms! I'm not a mom, but one day I will be. I'm actually a 14 yr. old Homeschool student! And you can visit my Parent's blogsite @brazenhusseys.blogspot.com
I wish I were more creative like you, stamping is really neat looking and I want to try it out sometime! Do you have any tips for a wanna-be-starter-for-fun like me lol!!!!~Lissie

Kristina said...

Stopping by from UBP. I like how you also listed prices for your crafts.

elizabeth said...

Here for the party! Your cards are beautiful - I'm also a stamper and love SU! I try to scrapbook, but there are only just so many hours in the day.

Preschool Playbook said...

Your creations are just amazing. Last year I was lucky enough to recieve a gift of cards made like yours. I am totally amazed at how beautiful these cards are. I almsot don't want to use them. I have used one, but they are just so pretty. Glad I got to visit and keep creating those marvelous cards--you have a real gift.

"I scrapbook therefore I'm broke..." oh so true! I love to scrapbook but I'm so far behind it isn't even funny - one of these days I'll get caught up but I have a feeling that won't be until my children are older! I'm Mommy to an 18 month old girl and am pregnant with our second (and last) a boy!

I'm just out this morning blog hopping for a few minutes before Sugar wakes up - having a great time at the UBP09 and finding way too many neat blogs - I'll never be able to keep up with them all!

ahappyhippy mom said...

I know I am very late but I am doing some blog hopping from the UBP and saw your link on the list! I just wanted to wish you good luck in the prize drawing!


You are so talented! Your cards are beautiful!

Candy said...

Your blog makes me miss paper crafting. Love reading your entries!

Julie said...

I love your blog! I am a beginning blogger and also novice stamper and scrapbooker! Best wishes!
