Have you heard? I've started a separate blog,
The Sugar Sharks, all about our life with Type I Diabetes.

Ultimate Blog Party @ my house :)

Ultimate Blog Party 2008

Welcome! Come on in, make yourself at home! Help yourself to some of my favorite snacks- there's Hot Broccoli Dip and Mountain Dew over on the counter. :)

I'm Amy, and this is my personal blog. I also have a cooking blog, called Too Many Recipes, and a weekly meme for paper crafters, called Sunday Scrappin'. (I'd love for you to join us there if you do any kind of paper crafting- it's not limited to scrapbooking!) I blog here about whatever's on my mind, but it's safe to say that the majority of my posts are related to paper crafts, frugality, and my overall quest to simplify my life.

I'm glad you found your way to my party despite the blizzard here in Ohio. I've been busy lately with my usual things-- taking care of my family, stamping, reading, and working a couple of days per week at my paid job as the Activity Coordinator in a nursing home.

If you haven't to the main party site yet, be sure to check out the Ultimate Blog Party at 5 Minutes for Mom. You can meet a lot of fun bloggers, and you might win prizes, too! Even better, you get to make a list of your favorite prizes, so if your name is drawn you might actually win one of your top choices. So far, these are my favorites:

I know you're probably out party-hopping, but I hope you'll stick around and check out the rest of my blog, or, bookmark me and come back to visit again! :) Please leave a comment so that I can visit your party, too!


  1. Hi, I'm out partying, but I am ever so curious about your preemies. How are they doing? I had a 36weeker with undeveloped lungs and a 33weeker. They are 2 and 1 now, and healthy as a couple of puppies. :) I hope yours are doing as well?

  2. Hope you're surviving the blizzard! I'm in Indiana, and had some snow swirling around in the sky a lot today, but no accumulation at all. Doesn't winter just seem endless this year?

    Have a great party week!

  3. Hi Amy :)
    I hope you are enjoying the party! We are snowy here in Kentucky too, we have 1 inch of ice under 3 inches of snow, I was hoping for more snow :)

    You have a beautiful blog, I hope to get to know you better, stop by and say Hi sometime :)

  4. So good to meet you! Sounds like you are so active in the blogging community with your blogs- how fun!

    Hope you can stop by and say at my party...

  7. I heard about that blizzard! Hope it melts fast, but not too fast!


  8. Happy Blog party!

    My first was born just shy of 35 weeks after I develloped HELLP syndrome.

    Best wishes to you and your family!!

  9. Nice to meet you. Happy blogging!

  10. You’re right … I’m ‘party-hopping’ this afternoon …(after posting myself today at Small Reflections and preparing freshly squeeze lemonade and snacks for visitors there). Your blog looks familiar … as if I’ve dropped by before … perhaps for Haiku Friday, T-13 or Wordless Wednesday? Memory fails me for specifics at the moment … but I’ve got your URL and can return later … and perhaps you’ll stop by my place too? I’m in Southern California and my yard is in bloom already with lots of color … so you can escape the cold for a little while if you’d like.
    Hugs and blessings,

  11. I noticed that Alzheimer's is one of your interests. It has affected 3 of my mom's 5 siblings. It's a heartbreaker. I really enjoyed your blog! Come visit if you get a chance.

  12. Just a bit late to the party... *grin*

    I had premies too, triplets born at 34 weeks. Hope your little ones are doing well! Stop by to visit us if you like... it's a party all the time!
