My Very First Giveaway


Let's face the facts, I need readers and to expand my circle of bloggy friends. With making jewelry and starting event planning, I need some traffic.

Our give-away: Kate Spade (New York) "Madison Square" Cylinder bud Vase, 7 1/2" - Full Lead Crystal.

I've adapted Mojito Maven's giveaway rules so you can enter one of 3 ways:

1. Leave a comment on this post and you will be entered once!

2. Become a follower (or if you are already a follower) of this blog AND leave a comment on this post and you will be entered 2 times!

3. Create a blog post about this GIVEAWAY, link back to this post, and leave me a comment letting me know you created a post and you will be entered 4 times!!
4. The contest will close Thursday, February 26th at 5pm EST. I will draw the winner and post on Friday. That winner will have until Monday at 5pm EST to contact me about their prize, otherwise a new name shall be drawn Tuesday morning, etc.

We will leave this open of two weeks from Today!!! Yes, and I am such a dork that I wrote it in my paper calendar, uploaded to my phone, etc.

Keeping up with three blogs was getting to be too much. My writing, spelling, content, actual job,etc were suffering for it. Much room for improvement.....Here is what you can expect from here on out my dear readers. (Yep, its a list....brace yourself.)

Mondays will be Not-Me's, Tuesdays: something about married life: cooking, recipes, my need for inprovement, Ken stories, whatever. Wednesdays: Operation Skinny Bitch Thursdays: Notes From the Bridal Brain (information about weddings, party planning, and the like. Fridays: Scootie Scoo and Gizzie Too (I'm supposed to be writing a book, but I'm a slacker. I couldn't even keep up with the blog.)

I hope you enjoy and Happy reading.

WOW. That's a lot of feedback in a little over 12 hours! Cool. I'm excited. Welcome newbees!

Glad you guys like the giveaway as well. I so love Kate Spade crystal. I could take or leave her purses, though.

Oh, and a rule I forgot to add before, please be in the USA or Canada.
