And So It Begins...


If you read my blog with any kind of frequency then you know all about the contest that Mike and I are having this week. Yes folks.... this is the week. If you are new to the blog you can read all about the contest HERE. Up until now we've both been spreading the word and trying to get some interest in our blogs but now the gloves are off and we are ready to roll!

So I invite you to do the right thing and visit my blog every day this week. I hope to have fun ideas/recipes/crafts and photography tips for you all to enjoy. So come back often!!!

And one more thing... I'm going to have a giveaway!!! If you leave a comment on any post sometime this week I will enter your name into a drawing for three corner bookmarks. You can see what they look like HERE. Just be sure to leave an e-mail address so I can contact you!

P.S. Please feel free to visit Mike's blog too. You can find it here. But please... hold off until next week! :)

P.S.S. or is it P.P.S.? Anyway, I just wanted to let you all know that if you feel the need to write about this little contest on your blog then I would be okay with that. I suppose! :)

***This Contest has now CLOSED***

Good thing Mike had his birthday last week when I graced his blog with my presence! I will now hold off until March 2nd before viewing the devils blog. Good luck, I will promote your blog..out of duty as your sister!

Dana said...

I think this is so funny that you guys are doing this. It sounds like fun too.
I thought it was all month, though (sorry), so I've been visiting everyday and been enjoying your tips and recipies.
Good luck!!

Mike Hurren said...

Oh well, at least when I lose I'll have the consolation prize of a hot wife.

Elena said...

Hi Karli, I don't know if you remember me. I'm one of Kara's friends from college. I love your blog. For those of us who are craft challenged, it's fun to see the other side. Good luck.

ty and megs said...

TL said...

Go Karli, you are totally gonna win, Mike can't compete with corner bookmarks, recipes, homemade wrapping paper, etc. I saw Kara's fb status so I thought I'd check your blog out, I'll give you a shout out on my facebook tomorrow! You rock! Tara

Morty said...

Karli! I was checking out my friend's friends on her blog and turns out I know you from way back in the day (okay, not that far--just to the time we both worked at Banta). Looks like you've gone and skipped the country!-Jen Mortensen P.S. looks like a good day to find your blog--good luck with the contest :)

T. Lopez said...

So Mikes 'recipe' fooled me... I should've read farther down!! when you guys tally up, make sure he knows I fell for it! Good luck to ya, I'm sure this lil contest is in the bag for ya--cute & shiny green bag that I love ; )
Love the 'had to go potty' story. Drake has an almost identical one =) Gotta love those boys!
Oh and just for the record... P.S. means 'post script', so each one gets a new 'post' so its P.P.S., and then PPPS, etc. Aren't I just full of USELESS information?!?

Anna said...

i have a feeling you'll win! :) i'd love to have my name in that drawing - mountaingirl_15@hotmail.com. let the games begin!

Erich said...

Go Karli! Hope you win. Adds some motivation to promote your blog, for sure! After all, what's the point of a blog no one reads? Nice design too, just what i would expect...

Jana Jensen said...

Go Karli, nothing against Mike but a sister is a sister is a sister that's just the way it is. Next contest give something away from the Upon the Shelf.

Michelle said...

Leslie said...

Karli--Your blogs are so cute--Happy sites!! Wish I had more time for my own blog!! Love the bookmarks, too--super cute!!

Leslie K said...

So, Karli, I have oh like 10 different emails I use for my different jobs/etc. . . .If I post with each one of them, does that put 10 extra votes in your camp? :>) LOL Best of luck with the contest!!

Well this is a lame blog. Maybe my wife would like the bookmarks. Does your hubby's blog have anything useful, like maybe some tips on bow hunting or wolverine tracking?

Karli said...
