Welcome to!

I'm really excited to be here although I'm not quite sure of my reasoning. I didn't really dislike my old name that much (that was kind of a joke), it's more of like when you are a kid growing up and then you start buying your own clothes... It just kind of makes you feel more like an adult.

That's what it feels like for my blog to get its own domain name--It feels like it's a little more grown up.

And the name Jeanetics--well it's an old inside joke from high school, and those types of things are never funny 10 years later, but the basic idea is that if someone says "genetics" on the other side of a crowded room, I will probably turn to look and see who's calling me.

But I like the sound of "Jeanetics." It almost sounds like It could be a contraction of "Jeanette's Antics"--which is a lot of what goes on in my blogspace anyway. So that works too. I've got a little more tweaking to do on the site--but that's the fun of having a blog.

And on to the giveaway. . . Remember back when I made one of these?

Well, I happen to have plenty of funky fun owl fabric for like 6 more. But I'm not making 6 more I'm making one more, and it could be yours! To show my appreciation to anyone who reads my blog I am hereby opening this giveaway to anyone who cares to enter-- effective immediately.

Do you have a little bum at home that needs wiping on the go? Or perhaps you are at the wipes for washing sticky hands only phase in your life. Or maybe you are at the I have a baby shower to go to in two weeks and can't think of a gift to take point in your life. Or perhaps you are at the my sister had a kid five months ago and I still haven't sent a gift phase in your life. Then this giveaway is for you.

Simply leave a comment on this post for one entry. If you want to put one of my buttons on your personal website or blogs (or update from my old button to my new one) do so and leave a second comment for a second entry. This giveaway will be open for one week. I'll announce the winner next Monday.

Meanwhile be ready for some fun posts including Jeremy's Fathers' Day present, a certain birthday party for a certain five year old, a matchy matchy sewing project for three boys, and who knows what else. Thanks for coming along!

i could really use one of those. especially since Samuel left our (plain white) one in the bathroom at Dillon's a while ago.

Do you know that owls are my favorite? I have like 9 on my mantel. Just saying... Also you wouldn't have to mail it to me, you could just hand it to me in San Diego, how is that for convenience?

Love, love, love, the new blog. It's funky fresh, and beautifully streamlined and high tech. Way to be awesome.

Of course, I would love to win the giveaway as well. And I want to copy your button to my blog, but I don't know how, and so next time I'm over, you should teach me. :)

But really, I'm way impressed with all you've done, I think the new look and new name is great.

I've got lots of dirty bums around and one more coming. Speaking of, I smell something.

Brian's Wife said...

Oh Oh Oh...I want one, I want one!! Can Brian enter for me too? J/K..but if I don't win you may have to teach me how to make my own in SD ;-). Congrats on the new blog domain. I seriously need to get my act together and start posting again...then maybe I could add your button to my site. Can't wait to see you in a few weeks! We are planning on calling today to wish that special 5 year old a happy happy b-day! These boys grow up too fast!

Excited to keep up with your new blog. I love reading about all the new things you are doing. You are so crafty it amazes me. I might just have to steal some of your ideas one day. That is when I figure out how it is you get all this stuff done while being a stay at home mom of 3 boys. Love the little wipe case. Would love one!

Hi! Love the new name! Very creative. :) I think it's fitting because genetics is scientific and for smart people, and you fit both those categories. :)

Miss you guys!

Jen said...

Um.......I'm recently in the business of wiping a baby bum multiple times per day.

Make it better! Make it better!

(LOVE the new layout!)

I don't know if there is one entry per household (in which case I may be able to help you with the *'s and related caveats for your contests in a few years here) but I would just like to comment that I think you should add a widget to your sidebar that tells the barometric pressure... just for old times sake.

Pick me! I'm not sure what I'll do with it since I don't have any baby bums to wipe but I'd love win!
