THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED & THE WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED LATER TODAY (1/14/11)
Since it's a mini tradition for Whiskers to be my "fur Vanna" and pose with the giveaway items (here and here), I went to go fetch him once I collected all my goodies. But when I saw him peacefully napping on a snuggly pile of quilts, I didn't have the heart to disturb him :)
So here we go, sans Whiskers....
In celebration of the new year + my blog surpassing 10,000 hits (I know...some blogs get that in a week or even a day, but it's a lot in my eyes!) There will be FIVE winners in this giveaway. Wahoo!!! Four of the items are pictured below, and the fifth item is a mystery prize to be awarded according to a different set of rules. Yes, I know what the mystery item actually is...it's not a stall tactic! And yes, the criteria for winning said item is also a mystery....ooooooooohhh....what could I be up to? I'll be sharing this information with a 2nd party before the item is awarded so they can vouch for my honesty :)
ITEM #1: Henna Garden Fat Quarter Bundle
(from Top to Bottom: spring, melon, pink, raspberry, citrus, leaf, brown, and speckle)
ITEM #2: It's a Hoot + Classic Kona Charm Packs
ITEM #3: 1/2 yard each (1.5 yards total) of three different Ruby Star Rising prints
(From Left to Right: Viewfinders in Multi, Vintage Ladies in Ivory, Transistors in Orange)
ITEM #4: Copy of Last-Minute Patchwork + Quilted Gifts
(I know it's been out for a few years, but it's a fabulous book and my go-to for gifts)
So now all you need to know is how to enter! Well there's the usual...
Entry #1: Leave a comment.
Entry #2: Become a follower, or if you're already a follower, leave a comment telling me so.
Entry #3: Blog about this giveaway, and leave a comment telling me so.
And the unusual....
Entry #4: Leave me a helpful tip about using Photoshop Elements. I have version 9, but I'm sure there are more similarities than differences between versions 8 & 9. Know of a fabulous tutorial? Leave a link. It'll make my day! But please don't do a 2 second Google search and slap down any old link you find...I'm really looking for links to tutorials you've actually used before and have found to be helpful. Know of a fabulous book/user guide? Give me the name and author.
Entry #5: My husband and I are looking into buying our first home. Leave us a pearl of wisdom! (prayers are also appreciated, but definitely not required ::wink::)
If your email is not listed on your Google profile, leave me your preferred email address. IF I DRAW YOUR NAME AND CANNOT FIND AN EMAIL ADDRESS FOR YOU, I WILL IMMEDIATELY CHOOSE ANOTHER WINNER. The winners will be announced next Friday, Jan. 14th.
This giveaway IS open to International participants. Prizes mailed within the U.S. will be sent via Priority Mail. Prizes mailed Internationally will be sent via First Class Mail.
Muah! I heart you all and wish you good luck ;)
