Happy Giveaway Week!

Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival Button

I've entered to win plenty of giveaways in Blog-o-Land since becoming an addicted avid blogger, but I've only held one giveaway of my own... it's overdue!

I've been thinking and plotting to start my own Etsy endeavor and hope to be completely up and running soon. I will be making and selling fun, affordable, and cute homemade beaded jewelry for mommies and little girls. For my Bloggy Giveaway I'm giving away this adorable bracelet I made!

{insert oooooos and ahhhhhhhs here}

You know you like it!

To win, just leave a comment telling me what you want for Christmas! (Yes, it's sneaking up on us again!) Make sure you give me a valid email address, so I can contact you if you're selected! On Friday October 31st (at some point when Bug is cooperating!), I will randomly select a winning comment, email you, and ship your bracelet via the USPS. (Only US addresses please!)

Happy Bloggy Giveaway Week!

Edit @ 1:09pm... I just have to tell you how silly I am. I have been checking back to see if anyone entered my giveaway all day and I was getting sad to keep seeing "0 comments". I thought no one liked my bracelet! Then I realized (DUH!) that I am set to moderate my own comments-- maybe I'm not so much of a loser after all! (Or maybe I just proved myself a huge loser?!)

Comments are now closed for this giveaway!

Last Christmas, I got a baby (my third). This Christmas, I really want a remote starter for my mini-van. Going from 2 to 3 children required a larger vehicle. Larger vehicles are hard to heat. And it's been cold in the mornings!

Kimberly said...

I don't really want much, just knowing that we have something for the kids and others on our shopping list is "gift" enough, but if I have to pick out something I'd say the new Indiana Jones DVD. I'm a fan of those movies and I missed it in the theater so I really want to see it.

Thanks for a beautiful giveaway!

Jessica said...

I have some vidoes of my grandma on an 8mm cassette from a camcorder that no longer works. I have no way to view them. I'd like them transferred onto a VHS tape somehow so I can actually watch them. So I told my husband that's all I want, for him to find someone who can do it. I don't get to see her often as she lives in Germany. She's 85, has Parkinson's and was just put into a nursing home on Thursday b/c she needs someone to care for her full time. These tapes are when she was still healthy and I did an "interview" with her about our family heritage, my grandfather who had already passed by the time I was born. They are absolutely priceless to me.
Thanks for the giveaway and have a great Halloween.
