Ultimate Blog Party 2011!

Hey all! For those of you looking to grow your blog, or just to meet some fellow bloggers, here's a great idea!

It's where anyone and everyone out in blogland can link up their blogs for the biggest blog hop on the web. They have special categories so you can fit yourself right in, and even a category just for Dads! I love that!

Don't publish? That's okay too! There's a spot for Facebook links and Twitter, so everyone can play. Go visit 5 Minutes For Mom for more information, and to link up. Last year

I wanted to post a little bit about The Little Birdie here, for any hoppers who don't already know what we're all about...

I am Rachael, first time mom, as well as stay-at-home/work-at-home mom to hubbs and my sweet little girl, Baby A. She rocks our socks, and we just love her to pieces! There is never a shortage of love and kisses in our house. :)

I own a little baby business based on Etsy, The Little Birdie Baby Shop, where I make unique, hand-designed tye dye and batik style onesies for babies newborn to 24 months. I also have a line of cute and colorful boutiqe burpie sets. You never know what might pop up in my shop, as my attention span lends itself to many many projects at once!

This blog, The Little Birdie, is an offshoot of my shop, but actually has very little to do with it, haha! I try to stick with a few themed days throughout the week to keep my busy schedule on track, and to make sure there's always something fun going on when you have a chance to stop by.

Merchandise Monday is dedicated to all things shop and business related. I share my ideas, tricks that have worked for me, and things that I think will help any budding business. I also review other shops, share goods I've been gifted or purchased, and host giveaways from these shops so you can share in all the fun new things I discover!

Tutorial Tuesdays are just that- all about tutorials! I feature one tutorial a week, something I've made or repurposed that anyone can do. {I'm no master crafter, people!} :) Tuesdays tutorial showcase also includes a linky party so you can link up your favorite projects, crafts, or recipes that you've been working on. I look at each and every one of them and always send comments... because I love ya!

Thankful Thursdays I do kind of for myself. It's a moment for me to step back from my busy, hectic schedule and take stock of my life. I think it's all too easy to take the blessings in our lives for granted, so I do this every single week to remind myself that there's always plenty to be thankful for!

Saturdays are dedicated to YOU! I feature all my favorites from the Tuesday linky party, and share your links with the whole gang. :)

Of course, there are other posts throughout the week depending on what's going on, but rest assured there's something for everyone!

Now that I've babbled on and on for FAR too long, I invite you all to take a moment to look around and see exactly what you've been missing! {haha! just kidding! but seriously... stay and hang out!} If you're a new follower, be sure to leave me a comment with a link to your blog, I love to meet new people!

P.S. You can also find me on Facebook & Twitter!
