It's my birthday and I'll have a giveaway if I want to!

Hi Everyone! It's finally the day for my giveaway. I say finally because I wanted it to be for my 200th post and then I just couldn't get my act together. I decided to have it on my birthday instead because I knew I'd have a lot more time after Christmas was over so...here we are. Let's celebrate turning 39 AND having 206 posts! Yippee.

I realize other bloggers can give away amazing things like coffee makers and vacuum cleaners but here at CityMomma/CountryMomma, we're low budget so my giveaway won't be anything even close to that exciting. I am giving away two of my handcrafted items. First is a set of my notecards. They're cute, they're functional and when I give them as gifts, people usually really like them. I gave the same set to The Son's teachers for Christmas as well as a set to my Step-MIL. Here's some pictures for you. The set I give away will be very similar but may differ slightly because remember, they're handcrafted plus, I'm not sure if I have any more of the paper for the bag below.
cute little storage bag...

the notecards...




the envelopes...

The other thing I'll be giving away is one of my Scrabble Tile Pendants similar to the oneI've posted below. Again, it's hand crafted so the one I actually make, may differ slightly. This is a picture of one I gave to The Son's teacher...I hope she liked it!

So, in order to enter this giveaway, all you need to do is leave a comment on this post. Some of you have already commented on previous posts and you will have extra entries as per the instructions on those posts. (am I confusing you yet?) Lastly, you can get an additional entry by mentioning my giveaway on your own blog and linking back to this post. Please let me know in the comments if you do that. I will run this contest until January 1, 2009 and will announce the winner on Friday, January 2, 2009. Good luck everyone and thanks for entering!

Happy Birthday Caren! I told you in a few other places online today but don't know if you have had time to see them yet.

You are giving away some great prizes. I am so jealous of all of your craftiness.

Happy Birthday!

Pretty note cards~~~

Michelle said...

Happy birthday, Caren!!

I have been sick in bed for several days now, so it seems appropriate that I finally got out of bed for a minute on your birthday. Not sure why that's appropriate, but whatever.

I would love to win that cool Scrabble tile jewelry!! It would make this sick gal's day! *wink (LOL)*

Nikki said...

Ok first off, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

Secondly, have a glass of wine for me :D

Thirdly, LOVE the blue and browns!!! I have been loving owl stuff lately, it is just more the "rage"? Either way I knew you made beautiful cards. I bet The Son's teacher loved them! I really like how you matched the necklace to the cards :D

Lastly, why is it that I didn't think to bead the strings for the pendants! DOINK!!

Cathy said...

YAY!! They look great! Happy Birthday again today! Hope your day yesterday was special! (Maybe I will actually get around to blogging again and link back to you....one of these days! Love you sissy!! :)

Hi! I stopped by your blog bc I saw a comment you left on The Nesters site. Your profile pick was just so smiley and friendly. Happy belated birthday!! I'd love to have my name tossed into your giveaway. Those notecards are to die for and I've truly been coveting a scrabble necklace. Thanks for the opportunity!

Dawn said...

Hi Caren,
A Very Happy Birthday to you!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I guess Darlene will be winning two things this week LOL!!!

I love your note cards. You are talented. I haven't pulled out my scrapbooking/card making supplies in a long time!

take care,
Dawn

Darlene said...

Hehehehehe....what if I keep coming back and commenting...do I get more entries??? Just a thought.....

Caren said...

No Darlene...one entry per post but since you DO take the time to comment on just about every post... you DO have a lot of entries...I'm just saying people...if she wins, she deserves it! ha ha!
