Ultimate Blog Party from 5 Minutes For Mom!

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

Hey! It's a party!

And a party isn't complete without a prize. If you'd like to enter to win my OVERCOMER Necklace you may enter at my giveaway blog Girly Girl Giveaways!

Hi, I'm Joy and I'm the mom to these three beautiful girls:




I am a birth junkie, breastfeeding, baby-wearing Stargate-obsessed woman with a passion for God, language and certain crafts. I'm married to a youth pastor and worship leader (who just started a worship band; watch out now!) and his name is Daniel. He's my best friend and I love him very dearly!

I also have THREE Etsy shops because I just can't stick with one thing. I like to try all sorts of different ways to make jewelry and due to my over-obsessive need to organize I find it easier to keep them in three separate shops: Creations By Chara (personalized hand-stamped jewelry), Chara's Creations (destash, magnets and beaded jewelry) and What Girls Are Made Of (glass tile magnets/pendants; with more girly goodness to come).

I cannot wait to "MEET" so many of you! Please do leave a comment here to let me know you stopped by so I may in turn come visit you!


***Prizes I'm interested in if I won***
My main three are USC13, USC35 AND USC39

But if those are already assigned winners then the following are other equally fantastic:
INTL8
39
USC3
USC8
USC37
USC40
USC43
USC37
