The Ultimate Blog Party 2008

This is a "sticky post" and will stay at the top of the page this week. Scroll on down for regular Happy Shack News and Notes!

I heard about the Ultimate Blog Party 2008 over on Meg's Brassy Apple blog. Meg's the woman behind Flat Betty, who Happy Shack Designs has been sponsoring for the first quarter of 2008. The UBP looks like fun! Given that I'm a bit "partied" out after battling the winds at the Bartow Bloomin's Arts Festival this past weekend, not sure how big of a partier I'll be this week, but here's a big shout out and welcome to all those participating. Come on in, make yourself at home and do a little shopping while you are here!

So, a little about me for the new visitors....I'm a full-time working mom of twin four and a half year old girls...wonderful little blue-eyed red heads, so scroll down for pics of them! I am also the designer/owner of Happy Shack Designs, a jewelry and accessories design company in Jacksonville, Florida. I blog about great Etsy finds as well as the going's on around the Happy Shack and life with twins. And....I give away a free pair of earrings every other Friday, so be sure to scroll down to Free Bling Friday to enter this week's drawing while you are here!

The Ultimate Blog Party is sponsored by the 5 Minutes for Mom site, which is run by twin sisters Janice and Susan. I looked at the list of those participating and as of this moment, it's already up to 1,016 moms who blog. Yikes! Come join the party here! There are contest giveaways and all kinds of fun stuff going on over there. Go check it out!
