I won two awards and a giveaway. I'll be writing for someone else. AND I have a job.

How's that for a descriptive title? LOL! I've had several fun and exciting bloggy things happen in the last few months. I've tried to come up with creative ways to tell you but it's just not working. So, I'm resorting to a list.

1. National Handwriting Day Winner from Stephanie at {Olive Tree}. In honor of National Handwriting Day Stephanie asked us to write a note or card to someone and then leave a comment on her blog to win a giveaway.

Just so happens I sent my dad a birthday card that week and wrote a note inside. I also had Will, Ben & Ellie each sign their names.

I can't wait for Stephanie's notecards to arrive. They are super cute!

While I'm on the topic of fun and unique holidays, my friend, Ann recommended Every Day a Holiday by Silvana Clark to me recently. I haven't read it, yet, but I trust Ann's judgment that it's a good book.

2. Kreativ Blogger Award from Stephanie at Addie Mae's Closet (and My Answered Prayer).

Thank you, Stephanie!

I don't feel very creative (or Kreativ) but I'm thrilled someone else thinks I am!!

I'm nominating the most creative person I know for this award, Kat at Kreative Korners. Go see the amazing things she makes!!

3. Kreative Blogger Award from Carrie at Reading to Know.

I can't believe 2 people think I'm creative (Kreative)!!

Carrie has a great blog all about books: grown-up books, children's books, non-fiction books. I don't know how she finds the time to read so many books and be a stay-at-home-mom!!

Go visit her! You can thank me later.

4. Boomama recently mentioned that some folks are going to be writing for Praise Baby CDs and DVDs on their new blog.

I am one of the folks! You'll be able to read my post on the Praise Baby Blog in the next few months. I'll be sure to let you know when it's up!!

In the meantime, go buy one of their CDs. You won't regret it!

5. Last but not least, I now have a (very) part-time job. I know! I couldn't be more shocked by it myself. I never thought I'd become a Work at Home Mom (w@hm)!!

I am working with the ladies of 5 Minutes for Mom and 5 Minutes for Giveaways. Each Friday I close their giveaways, notify the winners, announce the winners on the blogs and then send the winners' information on to the sponsors.

Basically, it's administrative work, which is right up my alley! It's fun and I'm learning some new things about blogging.

Speaking of giving away stuff. Next month I'll be hosting my 2nd giveaway! I'm very excited about it!! Any guesses as to what I'll be giving away?
