Ultimate Blog Party Giveaway! #UBP11







Welcome to the party!


About Me: 
Welcome to KreativeKaring and thanks for taking the time to visit! I'm fairly new to the blogging world and am excited to be participating in the Ultimate Blog Party for the first time



My name is Samantha and I've been blogging for a little over a year, and so far I love it. I would suggest blogging to anyone, it's a great stress reliever, organizer, a place to get advice, support system, and a great way to connect with new people!
My boyfriend of 5 years, my little dog, Jake, and I live in Maine. Our goal is to hopefully buy a house in the next few years and start a family. I love my boys! 


I'm in my 20's and even though I don't have children, I enjoy blogging about parenting because it's been the field I've enjoyed working in for over 9 years. Plus, what mom doesn't like recipes, taking pictures, and finding free samples, some of the other things i like to share? 




Want to Win?
I signed up to be a Blog Party Sponsor! You have the chance to win a Maine Hand Crafted Log Cabin Birdhouse! It has an easy open top to pour bird seed in, and windows so you can see your little friends. To ENTER for the Log Cabin Birdhouse, you must fill out a PRIZE ENTRY FORM. You have until the  8th to fill it out. See the Full Ultimate Blog Party Prize List for the list of all the prizes! 








Win This!

The prize that I really like is,  

A $100 gift card to Target and a copy of Totally Desperate Mom Provided by: Wendy Hagen, author of Totally Desperate Mom. The book looks really interesting!

Just winning would be awesome!
