Tackle It Tuesday – Getting Ready for the UBP 2011

Tackle it Tuesday

The Countdown Is On…

The Ultimate Blog Party 2011 starts on Friday and I don’t have time to tackle anything else.

Yesterday Janice and I had a party photo shoot with our kids and today I’ve been sorting out prizes. There’s still lots to do and some late nights to come this week.

We’re still accepting prize submissions and featured prize sponsor spots, so if you want to get noticed at the UBP, check out this prize update post.

What about you? Are you partying with us blogging-style? Have you started your “party post” yet?

What are you tackling this week? Link up your Tackle it Tuesday post…

Tell us what you’re up to with all your other tackles… housework and otherwise… add your link to your tackle in the Linky below!

We are making housework bloggable — Each week on Tuesday, we are posting before and after pictures of a project or trouble area that we tackled this week.

Find out more about Tackle It Tuesday here.
The project can be little or big – whatever you want.

Basically, Tackle It Tuesday is about giving ourselves incentive, deadlines and satisfaction in getting our household tasks done.

(It doesn’t even have to be housework… just whatever is on your To Do list.)

If you tackled a project this week, just add a comment and add your link below.

Here is a fun thumbnail linky:

And here is a basic linky if you prefer your linkies the good old fashioned way!

I’ve been dividing my time between coming up with creative ways to teach my grandchildren more about Easter, Jesus and HIs love using fun Lent ideas and activities like making Resurrection Easter eggs from their old LEGOs to having fun getting ready for your great Ultimate blog party 2011. Thank you again for all your hard work.

I too have been getting ready to party, and host giveaways on my blog during the party. I love the UBP each year it is one of my favorite weeks, and my blogs 3rd birthday bash falls the day after UBP.

Oops, I didn’t read the rules before I made my blog. I didn’t realize the Tackle was supposed to be complete & I just made a T.I.T. List. Next week, it’s on! ;)
