Two Years and Five Winners Later...

Today is the official two year anniversary of Carrie's Busy Nothings. Happy Anniversary dear blog - I hope we have more years together. It has certainly been an adventure since I put up my first posts to cure a feeling of boredom and a lack of purpose. I've learned a lot, I've changed a lot, I'm slowly finding my niche, and I'm looking forward to seeing what the future holds.

I haven't become a mega-blogger, but I've met a lot of great people in the blog-o-sphere that I never would have met otherwise. This week I got little thrills (okay, okay, I did the silent scream of joy) when I saw my blog mentioned on two other blogs as well as one of my posts pinned to Pinterest (and I wasn't the original pinner!), so it's slowly but surely growing into a fun little spot. I hope you enjoy it and I always love reading your comments - so keep them coming! It's nice to know I'm not writing to a void.

As my anniversary gift to myself, I've purchased a domain name for Carrie's Busy Nothings, so as of today, you can now find me at:

Thanks to you, my lovely readers, for coming along for the ride.
Here's to seeing what year number three has to offer!

Now, on to the really important stuff - are you ready for this? We made a video. When the camera turns on, we turn into hams. It's nice to meet you.

So, if you didn't catch it on the video, despite Peter's attempts to cheat, he was not one of the five winners. [He wants me to insert a "BOO" here] To keep things simple, we're going to go in order of who was pulled out of the hat as far as who gets what (with the exception of Jungle Wife, as she lives overseas so is only eligible to win one of the fridge magnets).

The first three winners will receive the note card sets from Dee at RedLetterWords:

1) Katie Ainsley
2) Donut
3) Since Jungle Wife is out of the U.S., she forfeits to Kaysi

Ladies, please go to Dee's site by clicking HERE - then send me an email with the set that you would choose and a mailing address and I'll get all the info out to Dee. Congratulations on winning these adorable cards!

Which means that the two winners of the fridge magnet are:

4) Jungle Wife
5) Sandy B.

If you'll send me an email - couponcarriek (at) gmail (dot) com - with your mailing address, I'll randomly select one of the two magnets to send your way. I hope you'll enjoy them as much as I enjoy mine - may they bring a smile to your face and a reminder to your heart that each day is a gift from our Father! Congratulations on winning!

Thanks for making this a very special month-long celebration!

And thanks to my sweet husband for his encouragement, his comments, his patience (especially on those nights when I just want to type "one more thing"), and his unconditional love. I love you with all of my heart, and long after the blog is over, I look forward to spending real life with you. {hugs}
