  2. Hey Jen- I just wanted to let you know that I checked out a ping back to my blog- seems like this site has taken the majority of your post here & re-posted it. http://www.kirkwoodliving.com/20-game-day-ideas/ Those of us featured are still getting the links back but while they mentioned that they got the list from your site- I didn’t know if you were aware that they took the whole features part of the post & re-posted it.

  3. Can’t wait to try some of these yummy game-day recipes! I guess first project I would make if I won the Silhoutte would be to decorate some pumpkins for Fall!

  7. There are too many projects to list! I think first on my list would be personalizing cups, etc for my boys to hopefully reduce the bickering! 😉

  10. I always seem to do this out of order :) I tweeted and pinned and I am still fixated on a fire extinguisher design that I saw a few months ago. I NEED to design a fire extinguisher for my kitchen, because I am a food blogger…and well… accidents happen. :) Thanks for the opportunity to win one!!
