let's get this party started!!!

First off, let's answer some of those questions that have been going around.

Question #1 (regarding me quitting):

No, I am not leaving the blogosphere anytime soon. I am, however, going to use my time more wisely. What has happened as of late is sad. It's true. But perhaps it happened for a reason, as I've gained some pretty good personal perspective. I have grown to appreciate the time I do have with the baby that I do have. And I have been reminded of what matters most to me; my priorities versus my hobbies.

Question #2 (regarding the aforementioned {B}ash):
In order to participate, just come and visit everyday as there will be something new and exciting --no promises though; I do have a toddler, and a boy at that! But I have a few fun things on the docket, such as, but not limited to: said party hats, discounts at "the spa", an upcoming tag, thought provoking polls, various freebies, a super swap, and some spotlights. Basically, I want to do a lot of fun things that I've sorta missed out on for the last little while. And I hope to have some equally fun participants!

Now, with that out of the way, it's time to partay!!! My first act as party hostess (with-the-mostest :) is to give you, my lovely guests, your very own party hat!!! I've been working on these bad boys for quite a while now, and I was kinda saving them for such an occasion as this --aka. my birthday. As you can see, the possibilities are endless, and oh so fun! I have already donned my festive headgear and it is now time for you to get all gussied up, too!

So this is how it will work:
with every new post, for the rest of this month, I will be giving out party hat favors! Now don't forget that these posts are FUN posts, in and of themselves. This is the first of many {B}happy posts and this is also the post where you will receive your own hat. The next post will then be accompanied by some sort of fancy doodah (ie. sparkle-swirls). And the post after that, with another element (ie. pom-pom). And so on and so forth. And when all is said and done, we'll all dress up and have fun! Thereby spreading the happiness. Voila:

{B}uild A Hat, part I

ETA: this freebie is no longer available. Basically, I goofed.

real one here:

Like I said, I am ready to be happy. I am ready to party! *B
