Partying Blogger Style

As a brand new blogger, I've been slowly getting to know the blogging community (a big shout out to my loyal followers and commenters) but I'm anxious to get to know even more of you and introduce you to my little space on the big world wide web.

Thank you 5 Minutes for Moms for throwing the Ultimate Blog Party with the fabulous goal of meeting wonderful and fabulous fellow bloggers.

If you're stopping by from the rocking party, welcome!

This blog was created as a place to document the budget-friendly ways my husband and I were learning to turn our house into a home for our family.  You can learn more about my family on my Into Our Family.  A list of our DIY and craft projects can be found on our Into Our DIY World page.  Don't forget to check out the sidebar for a quick glance at my top crafts such as Paper mache birds and paper crane mobile.

Please make yourself comfortable as you explore...oh, and very nice to meet you!


PS If you like what you see, please comment and/or follow me.

If I could tell you how badly my husband and I wish we were in an apartment or townhouse right now! Sigh... We're on the Dave Ramsey plan and it sure sounds nice and it looks like yours is just as homey as a house can be!

Just came by from UBP11 ~ Stop by our blog when you have a moment!

I put it together with the Guitar cases and bags and you'd have zero chance of getting the new one back in without removing the surrounds anyway. I tried it with a firm grip.

German political parties are not blocking development of photovoltaic
cells cost energy. So when you look at cost of production right
now, and the nuclear industry is not addressing that; they are focussing on moving the diesels,
or hardening the diesels or protecting the diesels from flooding.
