The Hunger Games Giveaway

As I'm drawing close to the end of the third book in The Hunger Games Trilogy, I am sad. Maybe not as sad as when I finished the final Twilight book, but I will miss these characters. It has filled a little of that void left from Edward and Bella and I can't wait for the movies to be made!

I know I'm blabbering, let me get to the goods.

Instead of sticking these three books on my bookshelf, I thought I'd give them away to someone else that is dying to read them.

So, leave a comment, tell me if you'd like to win for yourself, or someone else! If you've already read the books, feel free to give your opinion on them as well!

Giveaway includes the first book (paperback version) and the final two books in hardback versions. Still in great condition, only read once!

Good luck! I'll draw a winner at the end of next week!


  1. I loved these books! I would stay up WAY too late at night to read them. I also found awkward ways to add into conversation parts of the book--such as this housework might be hard, but at least we aren't contestants in the hunger games! I hope they go to a good hope where they'll be loved! :)

  2. I've been hearing a lot about these books from people and would LOVE to read them! That is really sweet of you to give them away :)

  3. Wow! I would love to read these books, you are so awesome to pass them on! Thanks!

  4. How generous. Seriously! I'd love to read them and I'd pass the favor on when I'm done. :)

  5. I was just trying to think of an excuse to start reading these! Winning would be the prefect reason!


  6. Pretty pretty princess please pick me! I'm a first year middle school English teacher who is trying to build a classroom library!!!

  7. I don't know if you're doing a random selection or not but I have to say, if not, Manatee's Headband above me has a pretty good request.

    I don't need to be entered as I already read these books and LOVED them. Personally, I found them way more intriguing than the Twilight books. My husband is reading them now, he's annoyed by Katniss but I had to remind him that she IS a 17 year old girl, they're pretty much always annoying. ;) Good luck to those who want to win, may the odds be ever in your favor.

  8. Well, as a librarian I can tell you they are very popular. Hope I win so I can donate them to our school collection. Thanks for offering them in a giveaway.

  9. What a great idea to pass them along! Have not read them, but seems the rest of the blog/twitter world has. Many thanks for offering this swag!

  10. I would LOVE to win these books. I would put them on my classroom bookshelf for my students to enjoy!

  11. I would love to have these my son has been asking for these. When we were done reading them I would donate them to his school. I think its awesome that your passing them on.
    Thank you

  12. I've heard a lot about these books and would be interested in reading them (I'm in Canada, though).

  13. I've been hearing about this series from more and more people, and am interested in reading them

    thanks for sharing your books!

  14. these books are on my to-read list and i can't wait to start! i've heard nothing but great things!

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!

A Wreath-Making Party

My fabulous friend Laura is probably the most creative person I know. So when she says she's going to throw a wreath party, you know it's going to be good.

To entice moms to volunteer for our upcoming school fundraiser and show them how cool it is to work with the fundraising committee, several moms got together and threw a wreath-making party. We invited school moms to come to a local clubhouse, bring a bag of fresh greenery from their yard and learn how to make a wreath. And who knew it would be so easy to make a gorgeous wreath for next-to-nothing (I'm talking the kind of wreath you pay $75+ for in the stores and nurserys)...

The clubhouse didn't have much to work with, so we got creative and wrapped the bookcase filled with trophies - and we went tacky on this in case anyone thought we were serious...but the centerpiece was the best. Laura found it at Anthropologie I think and bought it right off of the display...

We also had a cute little hot cocoa bar available …

Christmas Card 2012 (Or The Things I Make My Family Do)

Walker's now at the age he doesn't like mommy taking pictures of him. He finds mommy "annoying" at those times.

Gone are the days I can dress my little guy in a cute red and green outfit, with cute little green trees on his pants and have him pose with Christmas ornaments and Santa Claus.

So for this year's Christmas card, I needed to get creative.

So I trekked on over to Michaels and picked up some fake snow and a couple of styrofoam balls and decided I'd let Walker have a snowball fight with me and his dad and hope I could get some good pics out of it.

He was down with my idea.

Of course, we got a lot of good outtakes on this one...and it was funny because I had him all dressed up for winter, but it was actually pretty warm out (yep bare feet - we keep it real).

But the winner and my fave had daddy sprinkling fake snow over Walker's head while he threw "snowballs" at me.  I've gotten several perplexed e-mails and calls asking me where in…
