It's That Time Again!

If you're visiting from the Bloggy Giveaways Carnival, then HEY! If you're a regular, then HEY! (See how I love everybody?!)

Well, this post should be a bit about me and this blog. So, for starters, I'm a knitter. Well, duh! But, I am also a writer. Not just a blogger, but a pen-and-paper, in print kind of writer. And I'm working on a book. Actually, two. AND YOU CAN HELP ME!!

I'm doing some research for one of them right now, and it would be immensely helpful if you ladies (sorry fellas!) would take the survey(s) that apply to you. If you are or ever have been a daughter-in-law, then click here to take the Daughter-in-law survey. If you are or ever have been a mother-in-law (you have married sons), then this Mother-in-Law survey is for you. If you are both, then you can take both surveys. Did I mention how much I would appreciate it if you would participate? :-) Many, many thanks...

Now, on to the giveaway!!!

This part is also a reflection of me right now. This CD has not left the CD player in my minivan for days. The songs are stuck in my head. And I want them to get stuck in yours, too. How you ask? Because I'm giving the winner a copy! YAY!



The CD is called "Broken" and it's by a new singer/songwriter named Josh Fowler. And may I just say, he is awesome! Seriously. He could be the next big name in Christian music. Or mainstream music. Whatever kind of music. He just rocks!

So here's the deal: I want you to go to his MySpace page here because I don't know how to put it on my blog. Sample his playlist. Pick a favorite from his songs, come back to my blog, and leave a comment on this post telling me which one it is! I will use a random number generator to choose a winner from the comments on Saturday, April 26th at 6pm Eastern Standard Time.

Got it? Good! Now GO GO GO and listen to Josh!!

And enjoy the rest of the carnival! And take my survey :-)

I'll have to come back later to do the survey and listen to the CD. I'm just taking a quick break and then off to run errands (aren't you just so priviledged that I chose your blog for my quick break?)

But..... I must know.... do you have any books out there in the "published so I can buy one and read it world?"

Broken'. Your power will see me / us thru. That is what I needed to hear. Thank you.


Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 2 Corinthians 9:7

Thank you for that also.

Oh ya. Great song.

So you have a link for a site for a beginner to learn how to add a second color of yarn to knit?

I've never heard his music before, and I liked it a lot. The music wasn't working all that well though so I couldn't choose a favorite. I hope that is ok! Thank you for the great giveaway! nw_wife(at)hotmail(dot)com

"Broken" is an awesome song!

Wendy said...

Just to let you know, I took the survey. Hope it helps!

Now, as far as the music goes, it ALL sounds good, but I'd have to pick "Lord, I Love You" as my favorite. I'm a sucker for some good piano. :)

Thanks!
