New space just for giveaways and such!

As part of my organizational goal for 2009, I'm going to split my blog into two different ones. I originally started blogging to keep in touch with family and friends, as well as to have a place to "think out loud". My original blog has become so mucked up with different things, the OCD (or as Gidge would say, CDO) in me is going crazy!

So, now we have a new spot for the contests and giveaways, and, eventually, reviews. I've been blessed with lots of great prizes the past few months that I want to give back to those kind enough to share with me. : )

Please be patient as I move things around and make them look "pretty" LOL
