Been MIA....

Been awhile since I posted anything on here hasn't it? Man oh man has it been busy. I also think I have the winter blues - seems to be alot of that going around this year!! Plus, been having family issues, dh lost his job about 2 weeks ago, and that didn't help since I was already feeling blue. But he has now found a job - well, actually he's going back to a company that he already worked for so that's great news. Will be back to work on Monday - whooohoooo!! Then my mom has been sick and in the hospital since Saturday with pneumonia (sp). Her oygen level was really low so she's been on oxygen since she got to the hospital and is doing breathing treatments about every two hours. She is doing alot better now and hopefully gets to come home tomorrow. Sorry to ramble on here, just wanted you all to know that I am still alive and kicking. I hope to get some stuff done this weekend and get you all a freebie up by Monday, so check back with me. Thanks for listening to me ramble!!

Mardi Gras Parade Train

Welcome to the Moo Two Designs celebration of Mardi Gras, get ready to sweep those winter blues away!

Mardi Gras for the people, not just the rich, really did not get a firm holding until the 1960’s, when there was an effort to generate more revenue and promote tourism. New Krewes were formed, such as Bacchus and rather than holding a masked ball for those of the upper crust, they held huge gatherings with famous names to entertain. As this impacted the economy, it became much less exclusive.

Fun Fact: Many of the floats are created by Jerome Kern. He own and rents these and tractors (like that of a big rig) to pull the floats. Many of them have parts that come apart to suit many different themes. The floats are usually grand and flamboyant.

And now for your Freebie!! This is a QP that I have made with a chat freebie that will be given away at the Mardi Gras Trivia chat Tuesday, February 5th in the Moo Two Chat Room @ 9:00 pm ET!! Attendance gift as well as gifts for the first person to answer questions correctly!! Hope to see you all there!!

Download QP here

Now, your next stop is the Mardi Gras Blog Parade Forum at Moo Two!! There you will get your last part of the wonderful goodies!!

Don't forget to come to the masked ball and dress your avatar in the forum and win a prize!

We also have a fabulous Lagniappe Sale!

And last but not least make sure to join me for the Mardi Gras Trivia Chat!! Also, the Blog Parade started at the Moo Two Designs Blog!! Go there if you haven't already and throw some beads and get another great portion!!
