GIVEAWAY ALERT! Be sure to read all the way to the bottom for the first contest of The Eco-Summer Blog Party!
Let the party begin! It’s July 1st (Canada Day as I’ve been told by my dear friend Cindy Loo) and that means The Eco-Summer Blog Party (ESBP) is officially under way! I’ve gotten many questions about the ESBP over the last few weeks by curious readers wanting to know, “What exactly is The Eco-Summer Blog Party?”
To understand what The Eco-Summer Blog Party is you must first understand who I am.
As a new MOMMY who DOODLES in her spare time I hope to one day DESIGN a wonderful legacy to leave my children. This MOMMY wears many different NECKLACES each day as I breastfeed my newest little angel (Lil’ B), work my full time job, blog about the environment, and look for great HOMEMADE BABY FOOD RECIPES. Each and every day I try to make an effort to Reduce, Reuse, and RePEaT my actions from the day before. It’s not always easy since my life was not HAND PICKED by me but rather by my PUMPKINS that I love so much. Some days I wish I could escape to ERBA and drink some wonderful ORGANIC wine grown from the TERRA. Instead I am asked by Big B to CYCLE around the block in the 92 degree heat of Florida. My friends have called me an ECO-freak, but I prefer the LABEL of Eco Chic. During the school year you will find me FUNDRAISING for the local PTA or T-ball team. I rarely have time to pick up the PAPER or enjoy the high CULTURE that I once enjoyed by visiting museums. I dream of the day my husband will take me to the Greek Isles to see the wonderful DITTANY flower of Crete along with my BABY and little boy. I try to remember my SOFT sweater when I travel for work, it makes the LANDING much smoother on my head which is propped against the window taking advantage of a few minutes to myself. I quickly return to reality when my LADYBUG dirty’s her cloth DIAPERS that I’ve been using for a few months now. In my spare time I am trying to find time to get the PIGGYs soaked and coated with a fresh color of PAINT. It is my PURE desire to DESIGN a world where my KIDS THINK GREEN and take pride in this wonderful GREEN PLANET that we live on. The hubby and I will continue to hold our pool PARTIES, cookout with friends, and TRAVEL around the world. Maybe one day we’ll even take a train from the DEPOT or watch the STELLA BLU in the night sky.
Why are there words in all upper-case? Well those are the fine sponsors of this party! Without their help there would be no party and I wanted to start by thanking them all. If you are a regular reader of The Eco Chic you may have noticed that things look a little different around here. With the help of my first sponsor, MOMMY DOODLES DESIGN, I have a fresh new blog header, background and logo buttons. Mommy Doodles (AKA Melanie) is a graphic designer from Massachusetts who I met over a year ago when she was holding a giveaway on her own blog. I actually won the contest and we’ve been friends ever since.
Did I say CONTEST? I did indeed! The ESBP is full of contests, starting right now! One lucky winner will receive a blog design and/or redesign including a logo header, background and button. This also includes one image or clipart download from istockphoto.com (valued at $95) compliments of Mommy Doodles Design.
