This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to Mel4Him @ Frogs & Snails & Puppy Dog Tails

The first edition of the Crayola Creativitycast Twitter Party sponsored by Crayola & just wrapped up and what a fun evening it was! The topic was “Affordable Fun 101″ and participants shared their ideas about how to engage their children in artistic expressions without spending a lot of money. But most of all, it was a great way to make new friends and just spend the evening chatting away on a common topic.

I have to admit that this was my very first “Girls Night Out” twitter event and I was a little overwhelmed at how fast the conversation goes. But I think with a little pratice using hashtags & TwitterGrid, I’ll be an expert in no time.

Next week’s theme is “Back-to-school Basics…tips to get kids ready,yourself ready, classroom ready!”


  • Every Sunday through Tuesday, you can RSVP for the party by clicking on the RSVP post on
  • There, you can include your Twitter URL in the link list and see the list of other GNO gals
  • Visit each Monday for more information and a custom Tweet Grid for that week´s event
  • On Tuesday nights, tweet using the hashtag #gno #crayola and chat away
  • In the event that Mr. Linky is not showing up in the RSVP post on, please leave your Twitter URLs in the comments, which offers #GNO gals the opportunity to follow and be followed all in one place

    I had a Birthday party for my daughter and the theme was a Queen and her court of princesses. The activities were for everyone to make their crown and jewelery. So with scissors, construction paper , crayons, markers, buttons, and glue, they were occupied and then pictures were taken of the Queen and her court.
