Monday Mama Buzz Around the Blogosphere

Well, I expect these next two weeks to fly by, Ohana Mama! Christmas, family and cooking will keep everyone very busy! But it is Monday again, and the blogosphere never slows down…so time for the Mom Buzz to buzz about the latest and greatest finds of the last week!

Many of you may know what a White Elephant party is…and many others may have just heard it in passing. There are a few different variations, but The Power of Housewife Word of Mouth outlined the party she throws every year! So if you want to pick up this tradition, learn how here! Hers is loads of fun!

The Happy Mom Blog has a wonderful holiday recipe on her blog for Scandinavian Almond Bars! Mmmmm….

Your Family Fun posted a recipe for German Pfeffernuesse Cookies. They look like snowballs, all covered in powdered sugar!

A blog I have been visiting recently is Spotted Cow Soaps. They have such wonderful, unique scents and are very pretty! Some of my favorites that you HAVE TO SEE at her Etsy shop are the Gingerbread Whipped Sugar Scrub, Sparkling Champagne Soap, Candy Cane Whipped Sugar Scrub and Gingerbread Soap. I believe these are all limited editions and would make wonderful Christmas gifts and stocking stuffers.


Diana at Custom Blog Designs does wonderful work, and she’s willing to barter for it! If you need some graphics done and have something you’d like to barter for, just let her know!

Nothing Like It found a cute widget that lets you create and decorate your own gingerbread man. (She’s obsessed with gingerbread lately – just check out her amazing selection of gingerbread ornaments she has created!)

Life in a House of Blue has a ton of contests going on! So hit them all in one stop. Country Bob’s yummy steak and burger sauce, Trendy Tadpole Give-away, and a super cape for little boys!

Jolly Mom is another one who is buzzy with contests. I love her Kaboost one. I have one and it rocks. So go enter. She also has a Plan Toys, Munchie Mug and MORE going on.

Go Graham Go is doing an ImagiPlay Eco-Adorable give-away, as well as a diaper caddy contest!

Last day to enter My Sentiment ExactLee’s Poingo Give-Away!

Time for some plugs for contests at the Mom Buzz. There is still time to win Baby’s Little Log Book, Lego Police Headquarters, Amy Coe tote, frame and blankets (or sheets), Wii Game for Bratz Kidz (today is the last day), and a Precious Girls Club give-away.

And don’t miss these wicked contests here at Ohana Mama! There is a give-away for Dryer Balls and an Excite! Books contest!

If you want to be featured on Ohana Mama’s Buzz Around the Blogosphere bee sure to give me a buzz!

Mahalo Erin!

    I look so forward to Monday Mama Buzz! You do a great job Erin and on such a great blog! I always check out every single thing you mention. I haven’t purchased anything yet because I”m done Xmas shopping and our budget is thin, but after the Holidays I already have a list of what I need with my “Xmas money”.

    So anyway thanks so much. Thanks for mentioning me and hey don’t forget, only one more day to enter for a chance to win a $50 gift card to FuzziBunz!

    Lee :)
