Gonna Give It Away Wednesday

Wednesday, February 25, 2009

I notice that lots of the blogs that have giveaways have fancy or silly names for their giveaway posts so this is mine. I don't know yet if I will be giving away something every week that will sort of depend on my supply of items to give away but more on that later. For now lets talk about the giveaway.
What am I giving away you ask? Well, now that the Mardi Gras season is over and all of the parades have rolled on down the road I have a lot of throws (that's what we call the items people throw to the crowd from the floats) that desperately need a home. Some are collectible and some are just for fun but if you have ever wanted to have your very own authentic Mardi Gras throws and just haven't made it down to the Big Easy to catch some for yourself, then this is the giveaway for you.
Specifically this giveaway includes a cup from the Krewe of Iris, a string of beads with medallion from the Krewe of Carrollton(still in the packaging), a cute stuffed caterpillar, a bumper sticker from the Krewe du Vieux and lots of beads, more than are seen in this horrible (sorry it's so bad) picture.

Some of you may be wondering what you will do with these things if you were lucky enough to be chosen the winner. Your imagination is the only limit, you could collect them, wear them, decorate with them, kids LOVE them and I have even heard of people turning the beads into craft projects with their kids.

How do I enter? Good question. There are 3 ways to enter:

1. Leave a comment on this post, yep that's it just tell me what you think about this post/giveaway and you will get one entry.
2. Twitter about this giveaway, then leave another comment here telling me you did so and where I can find the tweet ie. a url or your twitter id so I can find you. This will get you one more entry.
3. If you have a blog of your own, spread the word about this giveaway on your blog then leave one more comment here telling me about it and giving me a link to your blog. This one is worth 2 entries.
All in all you can have up to 4 entries into this giveaway bringing you that much closer to your own authentic Mardi Gras beads (and you didn't even have to lift your shirt).

What are the Rules to this Giveaway?
1. An email address is required so leave it with your comment (or else how will you know you won)
2. A winner will be chosen using random.org
3. The winner will be contacted via email and will have 3 days to reply before a new winner is chosen.
4. Open to US and Canada address'
5. Ends on Tuesday 3/3/09 @ 10PM CST. Good Luck!!!

The bug is what caught my eye. It will make my family happy to have a happy bug.
The beads will be split up between me (if large and pretty), I am really hoping there is a nice set in the prize. And the rest will be made into princess' jewelery.
