Bloggy Giveaways -


THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED. THANKS FOR STOPPING BY!

Welcome to my little corner of the Spring Bloggy Giveaways Carnival! I'm so glad you decided to stop by!

I have a special treat for my giveaway. My bloggy friend, Mrs. Fussypants, makes beautiful jewelry, and since I lack creative talent time to be crafty, I am giving away 4 pair of her earrings!

I am giving away 3 pair of earrings for US and Canada residents, and 1 pair for other international residents. (To keep everything straight, I have a separate post for the international giveaway.)

The rules are simple: only one entry per person; make sure I have either your blog url or an e-mail address so that I can contact you when you win; and this giveaway closes at 8 am EDT on Saturday, April 26, 2008. I will randomly choose the winners on Saturday.

So leave a comment on this post, and tell me which earrings are your favorite. Also tell me something fun about yourself! I'd like to get to know you better!

If this is your first visit, here's a little more info about me and my blog. This is a Christian mommy blog. I share inspirational posts, as well as posts about parenting, occasional beauty advice, and sometimes some mommy humor thrown in for good measure! And I also have a recipe blog!

I also host a mini-carnival called More of Him Monday. Click here for my most recent post. Everyone is welcome to participate in More of Him, as long as your post is along the two topics outlined in the instructions.

I hope you'll come back and visit again! Also, click here to see what other jewelry Mrs. Fussypants makes - it's all beautiful!

  148. The Cherries are darling. What a gift she has for creating!

    I am enjoying your blog, thanks for participating in the carnival. I am finding a lot of new blogs that I probably never would have otherwise found.

    A random tidbit about me: I like to write companies and get free stuff. So far we have paid down loads and loads of debt this way. It's a small (weird) hobby:)

    Blessings!
