There is a brand new post under this one that tells the winner of the surprise give away! So, don't forget to read it, too!!!
I heart nap time. I mean, I love my kids and I love hanging out with them all day. But, on days like today, I just really love nap time, too. I have finally gotten a chance to sit down and spend a couple of hours (hopefully) to myself and get some things done. Let's just face it --- among the things I'm getting done, replying to emails is not one of them. I've been terrible at replying to emails! I used to be so good. Perhaps it's because I used to get my emails on my Blackberry. We got the internet service cut off to save money and since then.... let's just say my inbox is OOC!!! (out of control)
So, I'm writing this post to answer some questions I got via email and thought I'd answer them in a post....just in case anyone else was wondering. :)
Where is "not me" Monday?
Well, Mckmama is about to give birth to her 5th child. She has put "not me" Monday on hold until after the birth. But, don't you worry! I'm saving my "not me"s and I've got some hum dingers! Once it's back on and she has the Mr. Linky system back up where I can link up with her blog, I'll share my not me's. I'm just not sure I want to admit those things without others playing along with me.....ya know? :)
How did the Atlanta Market go?!
I'm sorry! I just kind-of left y'all hanging on that one, didn't I! I did mention it in one post, but some might not have seen that. It went really well! We were very pleased with the outcome! KWW now has 9 new vendors! And y'all, I'm super excited about some of these stores carrying our frames. I've checked out their websites and they are kick booty! I'll share them once the orders are shipped out and in their stores. Oh, and you can see a picture of our booth space here. (you mine as well just go ahead and become a follower of Kiwi Wood Werks blog, too because eventually I'll update business stuff there, I'm sure)
How do I follow your blog?
Oh my goodness! Where did my followers go? I'm so glad you asked because I did not even realize that I deleted my followers on my side bar. One night I was testing out different buttons on my side bar and I guess I deleted it! Since I don't go to my blog and scroll down often, I didn't know it was gone. It's back now. Whew! So, all you have to do is click on "FOLLOW". And, there is also a couple of buttons underneath that say "subscribe" --- if you don't have a blog or a gmail account, I'm pretty sure you can click on those to subscribe in other ways. Hope this helps!
What about your sister's blog? I go to it, but it always has the same post on it? What happened to her?
(ok, so this was not a question of one of my readers, but we'll just pretend it was.....play along with me.....)
Well, that's a good question. I wonder the same thing. She is such a wonderful, talented writer with clearly a heart after the Lord. She truly inspires me when I read so I really wish she'd write the next post already! Dang! But, when asked....she replies with the ole excuse, "I've got blogger block". Wait. The ole excuse. Um Beth, I've never heard of blogger's block and I'm pretty sure you're making that up. So, get on it, sista! We all miss your wonderfully written posts. Ha! Love ya! ;-)
The most common question I've gotten lately (through email and in person) is "How do you have time to blog when you're a stay at home mom?".
I find it ironic that I got an email from a mom that said she's just too busy to have a blog of her own on the same day I read another blogger answer this question. And, I'm sure there are mom's out there that feel I should be doing more important things instead of blogging....like organizing my pantry. I'm kidding. But, the truth is we ALL have our "thing". You know, that thing that we love. Blogging is my thing. It's my outlet. It's my release. It's my "me" time. When do I blog? I have a vow not to blog when I'm with my kids. I get up at 5:15. I spend time reading a devotion. I spend time in prayer. Then, I blog. If I don't get done with my post by the time the little Button starts to stir, I finish at nap time or that night. I don't let it rule my day, but it is something that's becoming more important to me. It love that I inspire others. I firmly believe that every person is put in our paths for a reason. I hope that I'm touching you out there in some way....even the ones I've never heard from or spoken via email with. I can't tell you how much I feel God working in my life since I started spending time with Him every morning and doing something for myself that makes me feel good. I'm aware that some women out there just might not understand why I love to blog. Well, some women jog. Some sew. Some scrapbook. Some travel. Some make time to watch reality TV.....
