Happy 1st BLOGOVERSARY to ME! Happy Giveaways to YOU! – CLOSED

15th June 2010

It has officially been 1 year since I started my little blog here, and I cannot believe it. Is it just me or does time fly when you are OLD (YES, says this here OLD person). Blogging has been great fun for the most part – its helped me get to know some other fantastic bloggers and their blogs, and though I’ve learned a lot, I still have a lot to learn. As I go into year two, I hope to tweak BORED Mommy and decide what I want my blog to really be about. With a new blog design and move to WordPress.org in the works, I hope that it will only get better from here.

So, I just want to thank everyone who has ever stopped by, and read any of my posts and/or commented – I appreciate it very much, and hope you will come back for more as I tweak my bloggity blog for the better. A wet kiss to each and every one of you.


And to make this a little more fun, I thought it would be great to get some prizes together to CELEBRATE this rather momentous (not really, but kind of special in a teeny tiny kind of way) occasion. Several fabulous people, whom I happen to adore and totally dig on Twitter, were lovely enough to help me out by sponsoring something for this almighty celebration. You are all awesome – two wet kisses to each of you – you are so very welcome.


Here is a list of all the fabulous prizes available to be won:

    Maria!! A year, congrats. So happy for you and so excited for what the future holds. (First stop BlogHer, next stop, blog domination?!)

    AT any rate, thank you, thank you for introducing me to Boutique Karma. Everybody is getting a mug hugger for Christmas. I LOVE these, and I so need my own personal Starbucks sleeve. Oh yes I do. In fact, I’m not going to wait to win. I’m going to go ahead and order myself one.

    P.S. You better know it, but I follow you on Twitter (bwahahaha) and I subscribe. Of course I subscribe!!

  4. Carrie

    Happy Blogoversary 🙂

    I love the placemats at Grace Announcements…if I didn’t think guests would look at me oddly, I’d get one for my husband and myself 😉

  5. Shawna Greyling

    I really enjoy reading your blog and hearing about your kids antics. It makes me realize that my house is just as crazy (maybe more so with the baby added in).

    I love Mabel’s Label’s and since our new addition, Avery, joined us last August I am in need of some labels for Avery. Get it? Avery – Labels – ha ha my bad attempt at making a joke…. need more coffee

  6. Melissa

    Happy anniversary!

    I love the cow & the moon paper co’s birch tree thanks cards… I’m sort of addicted to thank you cards and real mail in general. 🙂

  7. Jacki

  8. boutiquekarma

    Happy Blogoversary – you’ve come a long way baby!!

    I’m such a book junkie – and believe one can never have enough children’s books (hence my organization of the Scholastic orders for my daughter’s prek )

  9. Nikki

    Happy blog birthday!! I would love to win the Mabel’s Labels shoe tags…you wouldn’t believe how many kids have the same runners at my son’s daycare right now!

  10. Loukia

  18. MFA Mama

    I sooooo want the Mabel’s Labels so my ratfink ex-husband stops stealing my kids’ clothes that belong here! Love those.

    I already follow you and subscribe to teh blog 🙂

  19. coffee with julie

    The Cow & Moon Co: Thank goodness I am not the last person on earth who absolutely loves paper cards. I just adore them — they are little miniature works of art! I send them to my clients all the time for thank-yous — paper, not email (especially my Canada Post clients of course!). I’d like to have those little itty bitty “lovin'” cards. Adorable.

  20. coffee with julie

    I love Mabel’s Labels and am almost completely run out of my last batch! So, I would definitely love another set … my faves are the round circles. They’re supposed to be for shoes but I use them on everything because I like the shape.

  21. coffee with julie

    Even though my husband can’t stand it when I spend money on Scholastic orders, I do it every time! I remember how much I looked forward to my order arriving when I was a kid, so I just can’t deny that to my DD. Plus, she adores reading.

  22. Melissa

    Happy blogoversary to you! You always make me laugh!

    What a great giveaway. I love them all. Especially love Scholastic Canada.

  23. Chantal

    I had a look at the Grace Announce site, there is so much beautiful stuff there. I like the idea of the Call Me card and also the fact that you can get those beautiful designs in digital format! Love that!

  24. Chantal

    I checked out the Cow and the Moon paper company site. I had never heard of them. Their stuff is so cute. Their itty bitty cards sound just adorable!

  25. Jay

    Yay! Congratulations!
    Great Giveaway too:)

    I love Cow & The Moon Paper Co.! Thanks for introducing me to them:) I adore all the cards but my fav is the Birch Tree Thank You Cards

  26. Vicky

    Happy Blogoversary! Your blog is as old as my DD! 🙂

    This is a great giveaway. I would love some return address labels from Grace Announcements.

  27. angela ( jhscrapmom )

  28. Ann B

    Happy Anniversary! I would love to win the Call Me cards from Grace Announcements. I love her work and would love to get some Call Me cards 🙂

  29. Heather R.

    Congrats on your one-year blogoversary!

    I really like cow & the moon paper co. Their stuff is not only cute, but it’s also eco-friendly. Plus, they keep striving to make their products even more so. They’ve got my vote!

    Yes, I still follow you on Twitter (@sweetkeet).

  30. Crystal D

    HAPPY Blogoversary!!!! And wow look at all the awesome prizes you are giving away. I hope someone gave you a gift too. 🙂
    I love the Mama Cards on Mabel’s Labels. And the 411 wrist bands are so SMART!

  31. LesliCKellow

    Happy Blogiversary!

    I really like Grace Announcement’s ‘Call me’ cards. I actually like all the sponsors, what a first class line up!

  32. Christina

    Happy Blogoversary to you! Love all of your giveaways!

    I’d have to say that I love the Garden Flowers reusable coffee sleeve. Gotta love the green options!

  33. Petra M.

    Happy Blogaversary!

    I love the idea of the ‘Call Me Cards’ & the ‘Personalized Wall Art’ from Grace Announcements. The Call Me Cards would be so much easier than digging in my purse for a pen and a scrap of paper that would probably be a receipt I would need at a later date!

  34. Nydia

    HAPPY BLOGOVERSARY!! I made the move from WordPress.com to WordPress.org after about a year and have never regretted it!! I just re-designed my blog — Hope you had a great blogoversary!

  35. A Crafty Mom

    Congrats on your one year blogaversary – you rock!! These are fantastic giveaways – right up my alley!

    I went to the Scholastic website b/c I’m a teacher and a book whore . . . I LOVE their curriculum resources and pretty much adore all of the books!

  36. mapsgirl

    Happy Blogoversary!! It’s very exciting 🙂

    I absolutely love the “little princess thanks notes” from Cow and the Moon. And the crayon roll ups from Boutique Karma are great too. Oh so many things to love!

  37. Miss Grace

    I’m dying to get my hands on some clothing labels for Gabey. Hoping that way his dad can stop funneling all of his stuff away from my house by claiming that HE bought it.

  38. Susan Margaret

    I was checking out Scholastic and think their Scope magazine looks like a great one to share with kids!

  39. Katie

    I’m interested in camp/school pack of labels from Mabel’s Labels…my daughter is going to sleepaway camp for 2 weeks this summer and has a tendency to lose things. 🙂

  40. Tammi @ My Organized Chaos

    Since I had never been there before, I checked out Grace Announcements. I love the selection – any occasion! I was drawn to the Photo Birthday cards since the Twins’ birthday is coming up. I really like the Flowers and Smiles cards – so sweet!

  41. dee Brun

    I love anything from Mabel’s Labels..but the Custom neat Freak combo is my FAVE!!

    Congrats and this is a FAB Contest..I follow you and Mabel’s and enjoy every tweet…



  42. Deborah / Mom2Michael

    So many great products and prizes! I love all thing Mabel. I think the 411 wristbands are a super idea. Added safety for your kids in crowded places, and some added peace of mind for the parents!

    And I love the Grace Announcements Call Me cards. Such a smart idea, with beautiful designs!

  43. Janine Murray

    I was immediately drawn to the coffee sleeve (being the Starbucks addict that I am) so I checked out Boutique Karma. My first thought was “Wow”! M second thought was “I wish I had known about this site a week ago when I was shoppig for teachers’ gifts!”
    I love the cozies and the eye pillows!
