Blog Carnival – Edition No. 2

Welcome to the June 18, 2008 edition of a Carnival of Everything Home What a Carnival!! This carnival has brought 71 great submissions.  Please take the time to visit each one.  Remember to include a link back to this post.  And welcome to my new website which has been giving me a little bit of a headache these days.  I’ve been working on it everyday and just about every night so that it would be ready for this carnival that I promised everyone.  Hopefully, by the next carnival I will have all of the kinks cleaned up (such as – the links are all there but the colors are not showing up).  So go ahead and enjoy and get to know your fellow bloggers.
