Well, not sure what I was supposed to find, but on Skip to my Lou there's a Handmade Gift Guide, a really cool one!
Great giveaway, I LOVE Jen.

I learned that I like the Hope and Simplify scrabble pendants and that Tags n Stones offers 3 different font sizes depending onthe size of tag you order!
I'm a Jen fan and I especially love that pillow. thanks for offering the giveaway!

Little Lizard King said...

Everything is great. I was particularly impressed by the china cabinet transformation on Jen's blog.

lisalyn said...

Wow what a great giveaway!! :)
I visited Priddy Creations...headed over to her Etsy store too and I am thrilled by what I saw! LOVE her camera accessories! Very very nice. Thinking that although I just bought my daughter a different bag for Christmas, maybe she needs some these accessories to go with it!!
Going to visit another site later...have to get ready for work now. :)

Anita said...

The Skip to my Lou blob looks like a place I want to check out more...I absolutely love the childs Chef Hat and she has instruction on how to make it...Cute.

Jingle said...

I found the 510 Prompts ebook on A Shimmy In My Spirit and it looks fantastic! I'm considering! LOL!

Jingle said...

I also found a familiar face over at 30Days announced as a winner of a recent contest!

Sarah said...

I am loving Skip to my Lou!! What a fun place! I love that pillow up for grabs :)

FanningFlashes said...

I went straight to "Blog to Fabulous" and got some encouragement to eat right and exercise after holiday indulgences!

Carol said...

That was fun! I found Chronicles of a Stay at Home Mom, which is a fun blog!

Lori said...

I found a chicken recipe. Great giveaway, thanks.

Rebecca said...

On MMMcrafts I found a pattern for Molly Monkey! I love her and can't wait to make one for my little girl... Hopefully I can let Molly keep her monsters away. So, I'm happy to say I found 2 new blogs to follow Everything ESTEY and MMMCrafts. Yay!

steffany said...

I went to 510 prompts, had to figure out what it was. It looks interesting, but I wish she had just a couple of sample ideas so I have a better idea of her style.

steffany said...

I also jumped over to Home Studio, her scrabble pendants are amazing, so very finished, her choices of color and design are adorable.

myflsun said...

Um, I found a racist KFC commercial at Life through my eyes. Kinda strangem(the commercial)...wasn't aware of that!
And I found a cute fabric pompom tutorial at everyday beautiful. Gotta' go do some more looking around!

Mama's Losin' It has a great list of future post ideas. My favorite is her non-resolution! :)

Savvy Sassy Moms has a post about ecoist and their fabulous recycled magazine handbags. I love green products and learning about what other are doing to help the environment.

Sea Witch said...

There is so much to be found that I didn't know which to select first. Had to go with "Catch the Drift" because of the snowy weather we are having. Besides, I always love info on new deals out there. Sea Witch

bec4 said...

Well at chick chick I found out about advertising and texts and I went to gifts kids can make and found a great bubble bath recipe for dry skin!

Helen said...

Julian and Co. has got the most beautiful lockets - and now I want one!

Sherry said...

I can really relate to the blog Writing without periods and her post "menopause brain". Also, Adventures in the kitchen has a recipe for beef with Gorgonzola sauce that sounds wonderful. Thanks for such a great giveaway!

Peek at My Paper said...

I recently got a New Camera!! for Christmas - so I was immediately drawn to Priddy Creations! Very nice handmade camera goodies there! :)
Thanks for the Chance to win!

Beth at Aunties said...

I followed Jen over here to see what wonderful creation she was giving away. They are fabulous!
I then clicked on The Vintage Pearl and the Tags adn Stones and enjoyed both sites. My sister at Christmas had on a necklace which could have come from the Vintage Pearl which I admired which said 'Mommy'. I am glad I found your site!

~♥

peckette said...

I think I clicked on all of them! So many cute ideas! I am totally loving all of these creative people! On mama Bird's nest I found a link to get a free picture canvas! Love it!

Cherie said...

Well I found a wonderful site called M.O.M.S Arise I even decided to become a follower! It is a site something to behold for a single mother of three such as myself. Next I headed over to Lucky Girls Design Studio. Is it just me or does it make you swoon to see such talent in women. Her prices are reasonable too. Ah you said two but I'm having fun so I next took a walking click with Skip To My Lou! A master craftswoman is what I have found! So I skipped around her site for a bit and came upon her crafts for children. Do you know what slime is made of? How about moon sand? Hmmmmm Very interesting and we have everything on hand to make that slime but others will have to go and search this recipe out themselves at Skip To My Lou. Thanks for a fun half hour. Blessings to you all!

Beth at Aunties said...

I followed Jen over to see what wonderful creation of hers she was giving away. Then I got to met some new designers when I clicked on Tags and Stones and The vintage Pearl. They were similar but I loved the special touch they both gave theri jewelry yet I loved both of their sites and will be visiting again!

Swati said...

Strange - I can't see the widget, only a never ending paisley print, despite refreshing the screen. Doubly strange because I have used the links here before. Hope its sorted out soon.

Gwen said...

I found Priddy Creations. Hey, my camera may suck, but now I know where to buy a cool camera strap so that it looks priddy:)

Andrea said...

Love the personalized jewelry at The Vintage Pearl and the February heart warmer at Scentsy. AND I adore the table runner being given away!

Julie said...

I saw Priddy Creations winner for the super cute camera bag, and I tried to watch the video for Starbucks "All You Need is Love" but it wouldn't play the whole thing.

Mary K said...

I found the handmade gift guide from Skip to My Lou...cute!

Liz said...

i clicked on: 3 Boys & a Dog Reviews very cute! I learned how to get rid of all my junk mail! Thanks!

Jeanne Oliver said...

Sweet jewelry by Design Spool. Love the locket.

Judi said...

I found that I really like Crafty Girls Workshop & their to-die-for
fabric, and I found that I will be going back to Skip to my Lou for lots of stuff to do!!

SoBella Creations said...

I visited (Kids Spring Clothing)Hot Lava Clothing over at Etsy. And saw that she makes adorable clothing. I esp like the Sweet Pink Girls Peasant Top

SoBella Creations said...

Visited Whoa Mumma and found out that she also writes for a travel blog called Girl with a Suitcase. And she sometimes features new followers blogs on her blog.

Ooooh good one! Well I loved the Scrabble Pendants (the owl one is super cute!) and I also love the stamped jewelry courtesy of The Vintage Pearl! I've bookmarked both of them :)

Have a great weekend!

Tautchia said...

Probably not what you were hoping I'd find, but when I clicked on http://www.faithamore.com/
I got an error message saying:
This blog is open to invited readers only

too bad... I thought that one sounded like a good read...

And... when clicking on The Tip Junkie link

The page shows this:
Update your Tip Junkie link

Hey Ladies! I'm still trying to get the word out about Tip Junkie's new look & home. Many of you are still linked to this old blogspot address. {{yuck!}}

Here's the new link: www.TipJunkie.com


I am still clicking, though. And hoping to find some more really great stuff.
BTW - the giveaway sounds wonderful! Love the personalized jewelry!

Renee said...

HI!! First I want to say thank you for sponsoring the wonderful giveaway. I am a Jen follower and adore all she does!

I checked out I care village and Frostings. I have elderly parents and found the information wonderful at I care village. Loved the post on letting a parent with memory loss living alone.

At frostings, OH MY, it is all lovely. I love the handstamped neckalaces, and the photo necklaces. Fun and pretty!!

In addition to my comment the other day I slapped a cute "Friday" button my my blog! I must say, it looks rather adorable!

Tawney Peterson said...

Hi, I think that supporting women by visiting a site is such a good idea..the two I liked best were Seeds Studio (what neat photos), and Ample Samples (another good way to get your handmade items noticed). Thanks so much for the giveaway!
