Toot! Toot! Welcome aboard! My name is Christy and I am the creator/host of The Giveaway Train (or as my son would say… the conductor).
I started blogging in June 2010 in order to test out products for my family. It is my way of contributing (beyond being a stay at home mom). Thanks to my wonderful sponsors, I have been able to provide amazing products to my family and even my friends have shared in my good fortune. I am happy to review and/or giveaway just about anything you have to offer… clothing, cleaning products, beauty products, etc. If my family can use it, then I am ready to test it out!
I started living life one year ago. My husband and I packed up our kids, dogs, possessions, and moved to the mountains for a fresh start. With Yosemite National Park in our "backyard," we are able to raise our children in a beautiful environment while both having the jobs of our dreams.
I am blessed to be an online English teacher through one of the largest online public schools (K12/Aventa). Literature is my passion, reading is my vice, and middle school tweens are favorite age group. I teach to inspire the love of reading, the passion of books, the magic of words. Teaching is not my job, it is my passion.
When I am not being a mother, wife, and teacher I am artist of my own creations. I enjoy creating art, re-purposing simple objects, blogging about the things I love, and enjoying the beauty of nature from my front porch.
