Welcome to the Ultimate Blog Party

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

I've been doing this blogging thing for less than a year, so I'm new to the parties and festivals and such. I decided to take the plunge though, and join the biggest of them all, The Ultimate Blog Party hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom (where I've found many of my favorite blogs).

For the next week hundreds (thousands?) of bloggers will link to their party page and invite the bloggy world to stop by for a visit. And there are plenty of "party favors" being given away as part of the hoopla.

I had fun with my first giveaway a couple of weeks ago, and decided to offer something for the blog party too. A lucky participant will get and "Afternoon Tea in a Box;" one of my special giant shortbread cookies and my personal chai blend (trust me, it's better than anything you can buy at your grocery store). I'm including a copy of my devotional book "Tea and Inspiration."

So if you're interested, you'll follow this link to the prize page, then follow the directions for letting the coordinator know which prize(s) you'd like to be entered to win.

But wait! There's more!

I'm going to offer another "Afternoon Tea in a Box" to one lucky visitor to Refreshmoments. If you're interested, leave a comment on this post, or one of the next three "Ruby Tuesdays" posts (March 24, 31 or April 7). I'll give you one entry for each of the posts, so if you stop by all four dates, you have four chances to win.

Being a 'tea' girl, "Afternoon Tea in a Box" sounds delightful, but "Tea and Inspiration" sounds even more heartwarming.

Don't know if we Canadians can take part, but if so, count me in!

Have a blessed day,
Joy

Came for the party, and was stopped in my tracks by the pictures at the top. They are so soothing....

I've always been a coffee drinker, and i'm only just lately dipping into green tea for it's health benefits. But its also calming. Never tried chai...

Oh well, see you around the party. I'll be the one with the coffee.
