Ultimate Blog Party

I love parties almost as much as I love art, so after discovering Five Minutes For Mom's Ultimate Blog Party, I hopped on over and joined in on the fun.
I know most of you who visit Deep Space Sparkle are here for the art lessons, but if you're anything like me, I'm always curious what else is out there.
Are there any super creative parents who have art or craft lessons to share?
What about elementary school teachers...what are your favorite art subjects?
Maybe, there are more blogs out there, supporting art teachers, inspiring children or just plain having fun. I'd like to meet you!

Besides being an art teacher, I devote most of my spare time writing novels for teens. I'm not published, but would it be too brash if I said it was only a matter of time? I adore writing and creating and blog about both on my personal blog, Capturing Joy.

The Ultimate Blog Party is not just about networking, either. There are prizes! I can't believe all the inspiring moms out there who not only make great things and provide such exceptional services, but are willing to give some away!

My top prize choices are:
#44 Moving Forward A gift certificate for Usborne Books
#56 A suprise box of art supplies from KV Creative Designs
INTL19 A Sponsor Spot on Tip Junkie
INTL21 Blog/Web Ad pack from Foundation Studio
INTL61 Amazon Gift Certificate from Robyyn's Ravings

You know what's really funny? I seriously didn't look at your prize wish list and it almost exactly matches mine!

Amanda said...

Thanks for stopping by Moving Forward! I love both your blogs and am definitely going to follow you. I am a homeschooler who really bites at teaching art. Hopefully reading your posts will help me!

Hi Patti!!

Thanks SO MUCH for stopping by my blog. What in the world made you pick number 225?! lol I'm too methodical and have made it through the first 100. I think I'm going to give in to the wicked tempation to (hop around....I feel so GUILTY!).

I share your passion for writing and hope to be published one day. I passed up a publishing deal a few years back because I didn't feel I was ready. Now I'm honing my craft and developing the discipline of writing daily, inspired or not. The opportunity came upon me suddenly and I REALLY wasn't ready for it.

I also share your passion for art but NOT for crafts. I am the worst craft mother ever! Fortunately I didn't crimp my 17-yr-old daughter's style. She's opening an ETSY shop in a few days for her miniatures, which are amazing. And she's been taking art and design classes at college during her high school years. I love her artwork.

I'll be signing up to follow because I love to hang out with other writers. Oh! And I'm in California, too. Fresno area.

Please come back by anytime. :) LOVE LOVE LOVE your profile picture!

Visiting from the UBP...I love your blog concept!! I had an amazing elementary art teacher, although I didn't fully appreciate it at the time. I'll see things in museums now and remember that we did projects based on that artist's work or that genre. My mom has a bunch of our projects framed in her house (a credit to the teacher's projects more than our amazing talent). Anyways, looking forward to enjoying your blog!

Pamela Kramer said...

Congratulations! You are a prize winner. Stay tuned...
