the giveaway post --- thanks for all my followers

It's that time -- Imagine hit 150 followers! O__o I seriously never thought I'd get there. I mean, it was just a year ago that I started and the only person who was following me was Mrs. Marlow. Which by the way, she's published quite a few books. My first follower was a famous author, kinda cool --- right?

This is actually a two blog giveaway, if there ever were such a thing, my friend Hannah is also celebrating 50 followers, so we're joining up on this giveaway. I'll explain a bit more later.

Anyways, ya'll are probably getting tired of my rambling & want me to get on with the giveaway. There will be not one prize, but ten. Yes, ten. Which means ten different winners.

First of all, thanks to all the awesome people who donated items so we could have this giveaway!


[cards won't look exactly like this]
  1. Eowyn is giving a stationery set to one of the lucky readers! If you love to write, or if you have penpals, this would be a great prize to win! 
  2. Jordan is giving away a picture calender & a 5 x 7 print of your choice from her shop to one lucky reader! Here are just a few of the pictures from her shop. 




Isn't she a great photographer? I'm sure anybody would like to win this! 

3. The winner of prize number three will receive a bracelet of their choice from the wonderful business CaliforniaArt



They have lots of choices to choose from, and even if you're not a big jewelry person, you could give a bracelet to a friend. 

4. Rochelle is donating 30 return address labels.  


















Cute, huh? Thanks Rochelle! 

5. Melissa is giving a set of cards [your choice!] to the fifth winner. 






These cards would be great for anything, from birthdays to just sweet notes. 








6. Megan is making a blog button for the sixth winner. Check out her design site to see what she can do here.

7. This winner gets a pair of pretty pink earrings, thanks to Lucia



These are made from origami folding paper!





8. Anna Faith [my awesome sister] has donated not one, but three pretty blank handmade cards! Thanks sis. <33


9. Belle has donated a full blog design. Here is a sample of what she can do! 


















10. And last but not least, Anna from the Seven Sisters is giving a handmade floral flower. I'm not sure what it will look like yet, but here is an idea. 




---- 
Now that you know what the prizes are, you're ready to enter, right? Entering is really simple. All you need to do is make sure you're following my blog [of follow it if you haven't, since this giveaway is for my followers!] and leave a comment on this post telling me what you'd like to win most. Sound fair?

You must complete this entry before doing any of the extra entries. If not, all the extra entries that you have done will not count.

Hannah & I will randomly pick ten winners from the comments on her blog post and mine. I know it sounds confusing, but she will post this same post on her blog, then you can enter over there too. Notice, you cannot enter on both blogs! If you do you will be 'disqualified'. I know, I'm so mean, but seriously --- I don't want the same person commenting on my blog & on hers. But you can choose which blog you'd like to enter on. Is that all clear? 


Something else I'd like to add for those of you who've never entered a giveaway, you can gain extra entries. For example, if one of the extra entries would be to post on your blog about this giveaway, you post, and then comment. That gives you one more entry than all the others! The more times you can do extra entries and comment, the more entries you get. 

Here are some ways you can earn extra entries. 
follow Hannah's blog

follow Eowyn's blog

'heart' Jordan's shop on etsy

'heart' CaliforniaArt on etsy

'heart' Favors Favors on etsy

'heart' Whimsy Pics on etsy [note: I ♥ this shop]

follow Borderless; Megan's blog

'heart' Lucia's shop on etsy

follow Anna Faith's blog

follow Belle's blog

'heart' the Seven Sisters shop on etsy

add my blog button [see sidebar] to your blog

add the giveaway button [below] to your blog

post about this giveaway -- if you post or mention it in a post (twitter, facebook, ect.) you will get three entries! Just make sure to comment for that three times.





Imagine



That's like sixteen different extra ways you can enter! The catch is you have to comment after you follow or heart a shop, ect., which can get kinda boring. But it's worth it in the end, if you win one of the prizes - plus it makes it so much easier for me to count entries. For example, if I get 234 comments on this post, I will enter 234 in random.org. It will pick one of those numbers randomly, for example, if the number is 97, and comment 97 is Sarah's comment, Sarah will win the first prize. I will do this ten times until there are ten winners drawn.


If you're a sponsor and would like to enter, you can enter, but if I draw you to win your own prize, I'll pick a new winner.

There are only four rules.


  • The giveaway ends August 15st, 12:00 pm. Anyone who enters after that will not be counted. Hannah & I will announce the winners that afternoon, hopefully. 
  • Only readers from the US can enter. I'm so sorry, and I know how you feel if you do live overseas. I used to live in Egypt myself. Some of the sponsors might be able to ship overseas, but most can't, so I'm not going to make it confusing by saying you can only enter for some items if you're overseas. 
  • You must claim your prize seven days after we post the winners, or we will draw a new winner. If you can, leave a blog link or sign into your google account when you comment so we can let you know if you win. ;) 
  • Have fun and no cheating. Okay? Don't say that you're following someone and you're not, if I catch you, you will be arrested [joking, but it's really not worth cheating]. 
That's all. You may begin entering...now!

  2. They are great blogs! Sorry Emma, you are currently not entered. It would be too confusing if everybody left their entries in one comment, it would be hard for me to pick a winner. For example, if I get 234 comments on this post, I will enter 234 in random.org. It will pick one of those numbers randomly, for example, if the number is 97, and comment 97 is Sarah's comment, Sarah will win the first prize. I will do this ten times until there are ten winners drawn.

    Plus you have to follow me first, *then* to the extra entries. Sorry if that was confusing!

  3. Hi there, I meant your sister (anna) and she gave me a link to your blog. I think you have an amazing blog. You're family has some really neat ideas, I think!

    The camera I use (or DID use...my camera has a sad history and I'll tell it to you if you want to hear something really super sad, just kidding!) was the same one you use, only pink...I thought it was a really great camera while it lasted!

    And I have a question: How do you get so many followers? Do you KNOW all those people?

    Love your blog! Lottie

  41. Hi Kendra,
    I forgot to mention if I won what I would like most. So I will put the answer in this same entry so I don't get an extra one. :)

    It is so hard to choose what I would like. They are all wonderful prizes. If I did win I think I would like the Whimsy Pics cards. They are so pretty.

    Thanks,
    Hannah
