Fairy, what? The Fairy Hobmother! Have you heard of him yet? (yes, I said him.)

The Fairy Hobmother is a guy that has been going around the Blogosphere spreading joy and cheer by providing bloggers with $50 Amazon gift cards. When I got my “visit” (email) Friday morning, I was so happy!

I had only recently heard of him, and of course started stalking posts that talked about him immediately! I mean, who doesn’t want a $50 Amazon gift card?

Are you a blogger who’d like the Fairy Hobmother to visit you? Then leave a sweet and lovely comment below and you just might wake up to a wonderful surprise one morning!

I love things like this. The blogosphere has been downright giddy lately with all of the hobmother visits! It’s nice, just like those folks last Christmas going to random kmart stores and paying off strangers’ layaways. If I ever won the lotto or had money to spare, I always said I would love to randomly help people out so it always makes me smile when
Someone else does it
