Dreaming BIG!!! PLEASE help me blog my way to New York!!!

UPDATE 8/2/10 11:50AM: A little over half way now YIKES!!! Thank you everyone for helping to make my dream come true!!!

UPDATE 8/2/10 8AM : About a 1/3 of the way now...thank you to everyone who has helped out so far! 
Have you ever been so close to a dream that you can almost taste it? *SIGH* that's me! I have $1000 standing in my way of meeting with Martha Stewart's Craft Department in New York!!!

I mentioned earlier today that I was invited to Martha Stewart's Blogger Night Out. A chance for me to network with other bloggers, and meet  Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia editors and bloggers in New York. Well with a few nudges from family and friends I have decided to ask for help. I have been blogging for 5 years on several different blogs and feel that this may be a once in a life time opportunity. Plus I have never been east of Chicago, so a whole new adventure!! I am willing to push myself out of my comfort zone to take this trip, meet new people and experience something completely new though in order to make this dream a reality.

I am a stay at home mom with three kids, a passion for creating parties on a budget and blogging. Unfortunately since this trip is last minute ( I received the invite last Wednesday and the event is this Thursday, August 5, 2010) from Colorado to New York, it is going to cost over $1000 for me to go. As many of you Mom's and Dad's know that is a rather large price tag. I hate to ask for help, but sometimes you have to! I have put together an old school drawing to help realize my dreams - I hope you will help! I have added a Paypal donation button on the top right hand side of my blog as well as the bottom of this post, for every $5 donated you will have your name entered once into a drawing for a $50 Amazon gift card. If I reach or exceed my goal of $1000 I will bump up the gift certificate to $100. I only have  48 hours to make this goal.
Simply click on the donate button, you don't have to have a Paypal account to donate. Credit  & debit cards are accepted and the best way for me to receive funds immediately. I am leaving this button up until August 3, 2010 11:59. If you would please spread the word that would be so appreciated as well!

Thank you so much, truly from the bottom of my heart for considering to help me out. I know the economy has been hard on all of us. This trip would truly mean the world to me, a dream come true. You have my word that I will blog about every detail of my trip.

Hugs as always,


  1. I would love the gift card but I would LOVE it even more to read about your NY trip on your blog!!

  2. Pam I really hope you get there - I made my donation and my fingers are crossed - what an amazing opportunity to have. I wish I could have given more to help. Good Luck I have a feeling you will be in NY this week.

  3. Pam- you can do it and we are all behind you!

  4. Thank you so much ladies for your help and support!!!

  5. Good luck, Pam! I can't wait to hear all about your trip!! xo

  6. Pam - You left a link from Gina PR on my fan page last night, today I learned your news! I wish you the best of luck. I know my donation isn't large, but Every penny counts when your dream is this close! Best Wishes!

  7. Just a small bit of help! Wish it could be more, just couldn't not help if it's to see Martha!

  8. Take lots of pictures. And we need to get together afterwards so I can hear all about it and the kids can have a picnic =)
