GIVEAWAY | Cast Off/30,000 hits/300 posts :)

I've been wanting to do a giveaway for a little while. I've now got a whole heap of reasons to do one. My cast came off and I can craft. The blog has had over 30,000 hits so far - wow, who'd have thought! This is my 300th post! I'm sure I could think of a few more if I tried, we're going into summer here, I'm in a good mood etc...

I've got a copy of Amanda Blake Soule's book, the Creative Family to give away. Anyone can enter. I'll be doing the draw in a week on the 30th of October. Gotta keep another 3 in there, after all I've had 30,000+ hits, posted 300 times, we really need it to be on the 30th, don't we!

So just comment below to enter. Tell other people about it on your blog and let me know and you'll get another entry in the giveaway!

I knew this week would be a goody! :D

thanks for stopping by bits of sunshine. and I am the first comment on this 300th post! i'd love to win the book! and congratulations on all your threes and zeroes! love your bibs, too. also, hurray about losing the cast! and you don't like pb&j? have you ever had homemade WHO bread with chunky peanut butter (skippy), and homemade strawberry or raspberry jam? oh, well. i like peanut butter and i like chocolate, but i don't like them together . . . sort of the same thing, i guess . . .

Kathie said...

Congrats on loosing the cast, I'm not familiar with the book you are drawing, in fact this is the first I've ever heard of it. I'll have to see if it's available locally, it definitely sounds like something I would like to get for my boys and I to do things from. I don't remember the last time I won anything so I'll just go see if it's available even just at the library for now.
