ThanksGIVEaway

This giveaway is now CLOSED.

In a week we will find ourselves feasting with family and friends.  We will reflect on and share with each other the good things in life that we are grateful for.  And I think that's great, to give thanks.

My heart lately though has been leaning in a slightly different direction, I've felt an emphasis on a different part of the name of next week's holiday.  My heart is filled with gratitude to people who have reached out in love, sympathy, and support when they see others in need..  Those who have voiced prayers, and kind thoughts and words on our behalf, and on behalf of people seeking comfort everywhere.  The people who have watched children, sent flowers, made meals, and done so much more to try and ease burdens.  And my thankful heart wants to GIVE back to these people, as a small way of saying Thank You.

So today I present you with my ThanksGIVEaway.  You know those big fancy blogs that are sponsored by corporations and have big fancy giveaways with hundreds of people vying for the awesome prize?  I am clearly not one of those blogs, but what I give comes from my heart.  I will be giving away 10 prizes, and since I have only a handful of readers your chance of winning is through the roof.  The deal is as follows: leave a comment, telling me which prize you'd like to win. If you hope to win more than one, please leave it in a separate comment so I can keep myself organized.  Devin with his statistical know how will help me choose random winners (he assures me that pulling a name out of a hat is not statistically random, so trust me when I say that it will be a much more highly sophisticated method than that) and then I will announce who has won what, and you will email me your address so I can mail you your goodies.

The ThanksGIVEaway will open Thursday, November 17 and close on December 1. That's one week before Thanksgiving and one week after.  So check to see if you have won anytime after midnight on December 1.  The prizes I am going to give away are as follows: a tutu from Tangerine Tutus, a hair bow from Tangerine Tutus, a watercolor by Hallie, a watercolor by ME, a set of magnets for holiday use, a set of magnets for seasonal use, a small collection of Mary Kay makeup,  a box of homemade chocolate peanut candies, and a set of magnets for everyday use.
