It's Giveaway Time!

I am really fairly new to blogging, and I have never done a Giveaway. I thought it might be fun. It's the middle of winter, the weather here stinks and it just sounds like a cool thing to do. If it goes well, I'll do it again next month.

The prize will be a decorative wooden bird house from MyOtherShop in the color scheme of your choice....so it will be custom made for you after the drawing. Plus, you can choose any 3 photo greeting cards from my FourDogDay shop. (The birdhouse is one of the decorative ones I sell in MyOtherShop, like the photo, and for indoor use only.) Sound okay?

The Giveaway starts today and runs through February 13, 2009. The winner will be drawn and announced on Valentine's Day February 14, 2009. The rules to enter are simple.

Each day that you leave a comment on my blog, you get one entry. (One entry per day) If you would like to earn a couple of extra entries, just visit my etsy shops, FourDogDay and MyOtherShop and come back to my blog and leave a comment telling me what your favorite item is in each shop. That will earn you 2 extra entries. You need to visit both shops and pick one item from each shop to earn the 2 extra entries. You can only do that one time. Fair enough?

(Be sure to leave an e-mail address unless I can reach you through your comment link.)

The drawing will be done the old fashion way. I will put all of the entries in a "hat" and have Irv draw the winner. That way if you don't win, you can be mad at him and not me.

Wrigley is actually a pro at pulling scraps of paper out of the trash in my workshop...maybe I'll have her do the drawing....oh, maybe not...she usually eats what she pulls out so that might not work.

So, read my blog post for today, leave your comments, visit my shops, leave a comment and hopefully win a prize!

Good luck!

Oh how cool! I love your little birdhouse!!!! And your doggies names!

Sue said...

Hi Kathy...first time on your blog...I didn't stop by because of the giveaway, I saw a comment you left elsewhere and did I read it right...it's going to be 30 below where you live in the morning??? 30 below??? That's insane. then I saw what appears to be an upcoming wedding in March, I just have to stick around for that one...I love weddings. I just did a post about my daughter's wedding...everybody loves to see wedding pictures....Sue in Atlanta.

Hi!
Lovin the birdhouse! Have a great day...and I get up at around 9am...late- I know but- I don't go to work until 10:30 and it is only a 4 minute drive :)

Jonara Blu Maui said...

wow..what an awesome giveaway! I must have missed this if you promoted it on Twitter.

To answer your question about wordless Wednesday..I don't think you only have to do the wordless picture for the day..I've seen other blogs where they have another post that day. But goodness sometimes it's hard to figure out what to post on your blog if you want to make a post each day..so this way wednesday is already figured out!

Giveaways are fun. I went to the post office yesterday to send mine off!
That is the EXACT same birdhouse I have done:)) How cool is that? Mine look quite different.(painted) I love the stripes on yours:)

Best of luck with your draw, I'm sure you will get a zillion entries:)

kt said...

What a neat way to collect entries! I haven't done a give away yet. Maybe when things settle down and I get some time I'll have to do that too.

Good luck everyone entering!

I love that birdhouse so I'd LOVE a chance to win it! I went over to the "other Shop and looked at everything and I actually would pick this red roof birdhouse as my favorite.

In the Four Dog Shop I love the cards with the Colorado Mountain view of the trees in the snow. My son and DIL live in Denver so I love seeing the Rocky mountains when we visit them.

Thanks!
