Welcome to the Party!

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

It's here! The 5 Minutes For Mom 2010 Ultimate Blog Party is here. It's a chance to meet a lot of other moms, have fun, and maybe win some prizes too.

Let me introduce myself! I'm Gale. I'm a part-time artist and full-time mom to three little boys. This blog is mainly about my art and humorous designs...which you can see a sample of below (this shows posters, but in my shops you can find everything from shirts to cutting boards!). As you can tell, the wittier items are largely inspired by my own kids.

Create a personalized gift at Zazzle.

I have some fun giveaways and freebies to share!
I'd love to hear from you! Please leave a comment and share a little bit about yourself!

I am selling desktop backgrounds with some of my designs at Haiti by Hand. Desktop backgrounds start at $2 (a little more for sets or customized backgrounds) and 100% of that goes to help the people of Haiti!

Here's an example of one of the backgrounds I'm offering for sale there.

I am giving away one of these backgrounds to 3 people. To enter, do any of the following. You may do more than one for extra entries. Please make one comment per entry and make sure to include your e-mail so I can contact you if you win.

Hello! Any other sleep deprived parent bloggers out there? So, is it the parenting or the blogging that's making you sleep depirved? (I have to admit, sometimes its a little of both with me).

Well, I've got a fun little giveaway for you. Would you like to win the button below? It looks great attached to a diaper bag! It's especially catching on one of those black Similac bags you get free at the hospital. (Note that when pinning something to a diaper bag, it's best to pin it to the strap or the fabric trim to avoid causing rips in the plastic lining. )

I've also added a way for non-bloggers to enter too -- one that gives bloggers an extra way to win and helps share your site with others too!

If making multiple entries, please leave a comment for each.
  • BLOGGERS: Copy-paste one of the two codes below, or the button picture code, and put it in a post OR on your blog sidebar, then come back and comment with the URL where you posted it. I plan to write about some of my favorite responses to this....so if you want to write about what makes you a sleep deprived parent or include this image in another funny, creative or interesting post, you may also get some linky love in return. But, no text is necessary to enter, just the picture and link. You can also get extra entries by sending your readers here (see details below).

All you have to do is check the comments below and visit one of the blogs which have already entered, read one of their posts, and come back and comment about it (make sure to include the URL and your e-mail address). If your comment wins, I will also send a button to the blogger who's post you commented on.

  • BLOGGERS: Let your readers know they can win a sleep deprived parent button by making a comment here about one of your posts. If their post is chosen, you win a button too!
  • EVERYONE: Enter any of the giveaways over at Mom of All Trades, or any of my giveaways here, then come back and share which one you entered (1 entry per giveaway entered).
