“I Believe, I Believe”…in the Fairy Hobmother!

Even though each night I kept repeating…”I Believe, I Believe”, I was not sure it was ever going to happen.   Last night, just as I was drifting off to sleep, I thought I heard soft bells and fluttering sounds and just for a brief moment, a small flash of light.  But I was so sleepy I didn’t check, I thought it must have been the cats playing.

Then next morning, when I opened my laptop, fairy dust spilled everywhere and I knew it had happened! My believing had paid off,  I had been visited by the Fairy Hobmother!

Are you familiar with the Fairy Hobmother?  No, well let me explain.  The Fairy Hobmother is a mythical creature from the UK,  who travels the blogosphere, spreading love, joy and $50.00 gift cards.

How this seems to work (it is all secret, mythical, fairy dust stuff) is, he visits unsuspecting bloggers and surprises them with a gift in return for them spreading the word about his mission.  In time, he returns to the blogs he has visited, checks all the comments and then, when you least expect it, he may also pay you a visit!

So if you are a blogger leave a comment below, and be sure to also leave a link to your site and if you really, really “believe”,  you may receive a visit from the Fairy Hobmother too!

Thanks for the visit Fairy Hobmother, “I Believe, I Believe”!

    Congratulations on your visit from The Fairy Hobmother! You must be so excited and proud! I believe, as well :) although I have yet to be one of the lucky few to earn a visit from him. I still hope I may see his fairy dust cross my path one day. http://urcnstarz.blogspot.com/ (urcnstarz@gmail.com)

    I believe as well and it would be a God send as we are moving this week and the card could help with items we need. But I am to the point he is never going to visit me. Anyway Congrats.
