Friday's Foto Fun with the Ultimate Blog Party

It's time for Carrie's Friday Foto Fun:-) It's also time to party...again...

That's right!!! Today is 5 Minutes for Mom's Ultimate Blog Party!!

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

Susan and Janice are those beautiful twin bloggers who have brought you many, many great carnivals. My favorites are:

1. Tackle It Tuesday (click here to see some of my tackles)
2. Wordless Wednesday (click here to see some of my pictures)

You can find me under these labels every week. I have found so many new sites to follow and who follow me and I just love my 5M4M!

For those of you who are new to Susie's Homemade, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Susan (a.k.a. Susie) Ewing. I am a thriving stay-at-home mom of two wonderful girls (5 and 18) and a caretaker of my 67 year old live-in mother. I started this blog to support my chocolate shop on Etsy.com ( Susie's Homemade Chocolate Shop ) but, it has become so much more.

It is here that I explore my adventures in homemaking, baking, cake decorating and gardening. This has lead to competitive baking , writing for other sites and designning other blogs . I am thrilled by all that has come to me over the last year that I have been on line.

The thing that is nearest and dearest to my heart is cake design. Now, my long-time readers have to bear with me here. This is the third time I posted this slide show. I am reposting it here for the benefit of my new readers. This really shows what I am all about.




I love stalkers. Check out my left-side-bar for the many ways you can stalk me in cyberspace! I just started Twittering (if that's a correct verb). So, you can follow me there now too:-) I sure hope that you like what you see here and come back soon:-)

Just hopping over from the UBP and now I have a craving for chocolate :) Your cakes are so awesome and I'm definately going to have to make the semi-homemade salad as a side for dinner one night. It looks so refreshing. Have fun at the party!

I’ll definitely have to check out your blog more later… (I’m just bookmarking everyone right now, while I blog-hop my way through the party :-p)

Feel free to check out my blog, too! While I found the party too late to be part of the official prize giveaways, I do have a door prize at my blog: I’m giving away a free print copy of my book, “Two Snowflakes.” Here’s my address: http://twinhappyjen.blogspot.com/

It was nice to meet you!

Colleen said...

I'm still just blog hopping through the Ultimate Blog Party link list. I didn't want to miss out on any blogs... but I just ran out of party time. So... I'm still working my way down the list... even though the party is technically over.
Stop in on my blog if you've got a minute! Or... if you're still up for a party post... you could stop by my party anytime!
