Mother & wife, blogger, educator, foodie
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). Logan was my inspiration for the name of this blog. He started his love for trains at the age of 18 months…and still to this day he loves trains, but now also is infatuated with LEGOs and Lincoln Logs. Kira has followed Logan’s love of trains and LEGOs… but as she grows she is starting to form her own opinions on toys (her room is filled to the brim with stuffed toys including Yo Gabba Gabba, Frozen, and My Little Ponies).
From Los Angeles to the mountains, life has been an adventure! I live in the mountains near Yosemite National Park (near Bass Lake) with my husband, our two children, and our Weimaraner ~ Captain Shadow.
I was a stay-at-home-mom for years, and wanted to help provide for my family. I started blogging in June 2010 in hopes of reviewing products my family could use on a daily basis. My love for reviewing turned into a love for giving my readers my honest opinion, finding amazing deals, sharing recipes and crafts, and so much more. I also have added more events and entertainment to my blog –> I hope you are following all of my Disney Press Events!!!!
Now in 2015 I am a mother of two wonderful children, blogger, and a first grade teacher. Thanks to my wonderful sponsors, I have been able to review amazing products, attended numerous events… 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!
You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Hope to hear from you soon!
I’ve learned over the years, I can’t do this alone! I decided to add a new blogger to my site. Here is my teammate:
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. 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.
