What's a Mom to do when

ever since Saturday night a barf bucket and bottle of re-hydrating fluids have become necessary to always have handy? When the washer hums constantly with bedding that no "normal" laundry is being done?When she has to lock herself in the bathroom to clean it while a blubbering baby bangs at the door?
When her couch is taken over by slumbering lugs?
When the appliance repair guy, who is suppose to come fix the clunked out microwave, calls looking for directions to her house but can't find it because he's in MN and she's in CO?

When she feels her Inner Screech Owl rearing it's ugly head?
What's a Mom to do?

She vents to her husband at work via text messages (who kindly offers to come home to help), tucks her cherubs in bed, inhales deeply in the clean and sanitary bathroom, puts one last load of bedding going, reschedules a local repairman to come fix the microwave,
grabs her book,

picks her way thru the maze of toys and heads for the exercise bike. She's pops off 13 miles in 40 minutes (a tad bit slower than normal but cut her some slack, will you?) while occasionally looking up from her reading to admire the mountains and enjoy the cool air coming in thru the slightly opened window. Her Inner Screech Owl tucked safely away, she enjoys a bowl of fresh strawberries and vanilla yogurt.

That's what she does. Ahhh!!

Oh dear! Darn those days! Hope today is going MUCH better!

I just found your etsy site online and LOVE LOVE LOVE your Hummingbird blanket with minky for baby & the Blast of patchwork! SO STINKIN' CUTE! Not to mention those sassy aprons!
I just love finding sites where ordinary people are doing extra ordinary things with their wonderful talents! I am wondering if you and your business would be interested in sponsoring a review and possibly a giveaway on my blog, dangginagives.blogspot.com?

I have this blog to find fantastic products for me, my family & friends, and also to help out fellow entrepreneurs. My blog targets other mothers and wives who are searching for the best. Once a product is sent to me, I begin my review and enjoy providing an honest opinion on what features I love and sometimes, if applicable, where I feel a product may need some improvement. I have found that a review receives more traffic when it is accompanied with a giveaway. I always require, as the mandatory entry into a giveaway, that my readers view the sponsor's site and then tell me what their favorite product is. This guarantees my sponsor that their site is receiving traffic and that their products are being viewed. This also helps "Boost" Business for the sponsor!

Here are a few comments from past sponsors:

Gina was such a PLEASURE to work with! She communicated really well with me. Whenever I had questions, she would email me back immediately!! This was my first experience doing a "giveaway" and I wasn't sure what to expect. It turned out to be an EXCELLENT experience for me! I experienced a lot of activity during the week of the review and giveaway. I also received a large order as well! Thank you so much Gina for your wonderful personality and doing such a fantastic job! I look forward to all your new giveaways each week and I know I'll be back to GIVEAWAY more in the near future at DANG GINA GIVES blog!!

I have just loved working with Gina and the Dang Gina site. She has been such a joy to converse with through email. She is so willing to give of her time and talents so that businesses all around can get the word out about their company and product, plus who doesn't love a good giveaway! I highly recommend donating services and or product for the Dang Gina giveaway blog. I have now used her for two of my businesses.

If you would like any more information, please let me know. Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you.
