Like a Gazillion Contests and a Blogfest

First, I want to say thanks to Laurel at Laurel's Leaves and Sarah McClung at The Babbling Flow of a Fledgling Scribbler. I recently won prizes on both of their blogs. :) Thanks, ladies!

Now for the contests. These really stacked up while I was unplugged, so there are a TON, but some really cool prizes are being given away so be sure to check them all out.

And I think my spacebar is going out on my keyboard (ACK!) so I hope it doesn't crap out on me before I'm finished. Otherwise, things might get a little difficult to read. ;)
