My Favorite Things [Giveaway!!]

{Updated February 8, 2010}
 Congratulations to Commenter #36.........
Juliana from "A Blonde Walks into a Blog!"
----------
Thanks so much to everyone who participated!
This was so much fun and I've already got Giveaway #2 in the works!
I hope those of you who came to follow on account of the giveaway will stick around and continue to explore "Make Me a Blessing." Tell you're friends about me and help me reach 200 followers for another Fantastic Giveaway!


I'll be honest with you. I'm not a very materialistic person. I admit that I used to be. Before I got married and had a baby and realized that "things" really aren't all that they are cracked up to be. There is still that inside part of me that enjoys splurging on a pair of shoes. Or a new handbag. The inner "diva" in me could browse and shop for diamond jewelry every single day. And should I ever receive some giant inheritance or hit the lottery {which I won't, because I don't play and none of my family is rich}, I would buy myself a BMW or a Range Rover. I wouldn't be able to stop myself. I mean who wouldn't want to cruise around in this?

Belive me. There are two people in this house with a soft spot for these little babies. Anywho. I'm getting off track. Excuse me a secong while I wipe the drool from my face.  Ok. I'm back. Like I was saying. "Things" don't really mean much to me. I am a sucker for the small things. The sweet text messages my husband sends me on occasion to let me know that he loves me and is thinking about me. The way that my beautiful little boy grins at me and holds his hands up in the mornings when I come to get him out of bed. The smell of coffee. The yumminess of a Starbucks Frappacino. And there are a few 'things' that make me smile, too.

Mod Podge

Super Cute Notebooks & Journals


Pretty Scrapbook Paper {to go along with my mod-podging of course!}


Pretty Picture Frames...especially ones that are homemade. Like these.

Metal Free Elastic Hairbands

Colorful Gel Inkpens

Starbucks. Of course.


Nicholas Sparks Novels
My Droid Eris

So. All this being said, WHY am I telling you this? Because THESE items {well some of them} are what I'm giving away for my VERY FIRST GIVEAWAY!! Go ahead. Get excited. I know these are pretty cool items that everyone would like to win.

On Saturday, February 6, I will be giving away:

One pack of Scrapbook paper, One super cute journal, One pack of colored gel pens, a pack of metal free hair bands, one excessively cute picture frame, A bottle of Mod Podge [winners choice of what kind], Winners choice of Paperback Nicholas Sparks Novel, and a Starbucks Giftcard. {Sorry. I love you guys and all, but I can't afford to giveaway a Droid Eris.} Sound like a pretty sweet little gift pack?

Now. The RULES for entry:
  • Follow my Blog Publicly or let me know that you already do. {1 Time Entry: MANDATORY}
  • Follow me on Twitter {1 Time Entry}
  • Subscribe to my blog via Feed {1 Time Entry}
  • Follow my Blog via Facebook Network Blogs {1 Time Entry}

  • Vote for me by clicking on the "Top Mommy Blog" button and let me know you voted {You can vote once a day every day for additional daily entries}
  • For 3 extra entries, you can blog about your favorite things and link to this giveaway.
Please leave me a comment for each entry every time you do one so I can keep count. No anonymous entries...for obvious reasons. If you blog or tweet this, make sure that you leave me the link so I can check it out! I'll draw for the winner via random.org and notify the winner on Saturday Evening via Email-so make sure that I have that too!

Love you guys and I'm so excited to give my "prize" to one of you wonderful followers. You guys rock!
