May Giveaway Contest Winner

I like pictures. This being said, I’m going to use pictures to announce the winner. They say that a picture is worth a thousand words. In this case, it’s only worth about $33 bucks from Target, but still.

Using, adding all the extra entrants in and entering the numbers….And the winner is:

But just who is commenter #66? Anonymous? No! Wait…she left a name!

Congratulations, Diane. You should have an email from me in your inbox – send me your address so I can send you your Target Gift card, okay?

And for all of those who entered and didn’t win? Well, fooey then. But seriously…don’t despair – nothing rivals my love of the ellipses like a good contest. Check back this next week for June’s giveaway!

May Giveaway is Here! Woo Hoo! Get ya some!

***Time’s up! This contest is now closed***
It’s that time again…yes, the Monthly Giveaway is here! And only two weeks into the month! Don’t you think I’m doing so much better? (Don’t answer that.)

I know how much I personally love this store, so I thought to myself, “Self…why not give a gift card for this store away?”

So that’s what I’m doing – what’s the store, you ask? Lookie here:

Why in the world $33? Because I can. That’s why. I like odd numbers – why be normal when you can have more fun being the opposite of normal?

The Fine Print:

~The contest begins today and ends Saturday 5/31 at 12pm CMT.

~One entry per person, please.

~You do not have to have a blog to enter – just be sure to leave me your contact information in the comments. If you do not leave contact information and there is no email on your blog I will draw someone else (if you want another entry, just grab the little birdy photo from above and paste it somewhere on your blog, but tell me in comments you’ve done it!)

~No Anonymous comments will be entered for obvious reasons.

~Random Number generator will choose the winner.

Good luck. And may the force be with you. I don’t know why I said that. It just felt right.

Thanks to everyone who commented today! That was fun – hope you all had a blessed and wonderful Mother’s Day (even those of you who aren’t yet mommies!)

And the winner is…(having been drawn by the random number generator with my husband looking over my shoulder at 12:00 midnight — sorry — we were at my mother-in-laws LATE):

Because Emily didn’t want to enter since she doesn’t have kids, I didn’t add her into the mix, but I did enter everyone else. And the lucky number six goes to:

Congrats, Megan! I’ve emailed you with the details. That was so much fun, we’ll have to do some more silly little sneak prizes this month…I love giving things away so so much.

My big news…

I’ve been keeping it a secret for weeks and it’s been killing me…so without further ado…{are you getting tired of the ellipses yet?}

I’m featured on Bloggy Giveaways this week and, well, if you want to know the details, you’ll just have to head on over there and see for yourself what the hoopla is all about. {I know, I know…I am SO mean to make you follow a stinkin’ link — but not nearly as mean as I was going to be. I was going to tell you that I was pregnant in the first sentence, but I just could not bring myself to do it, because, alas, I am not. And because it would be mean. So I didn’t. Because I’m nice like that.}

By the way…I completely overhauled my design blog in an attempt to get ready for Tuesday’s giveaway:

simply amusing designs

And one more thing. I promise to update this blog more often now that I have the pressure of completing my design blog done. That is all. Thank you. Now, go enter yourself in the giveaway.

April’s Organization Giveaway Winner

simply a musing blog contest winner

Obviously, this means nothing to anyone until I explain it. If you go back to the original post, you’ll see there are only 140 entries (one of which is a duplicate, which I didn’t count)…so how the heck did I come up with #181 as the winner? Well, everyone who posted or linked to my blog about the contest got 5 extra entries…and I went through personally and checked every single blog where someone had said they linked and there were eleven. (backlinks doesn’t show that many, but there really are!) I added those ladies on at the end in multiples of five in the order they commented and commenter # 181 would go to…(drumroll please)

Congratulations to Ginny from Daily Thoughts! I will need your snail mail address so I can get these out to you!

Thanks to everyone for participating – here’s a little link love for those who linked back to me for the contest:

~Elaine from Home But Not Alone
~Jeanette from Always Been Different
~Elaine from The Miss Elaine-ous Life
~Misty from Rainy Days in May
~J from Musings from Left Field
~Angela & Connor
~Tammy from Three Different Directions
~Elliemae from Elliemaes Days
~Tami at Desires of Thine Heart

Sorry this is a little late, but for those of you who don’t normally read here, life has been a little bit…hectic lately. 🙂 We’re on the upswing, though and I’m sure it’s going to get a lot worse better soon!

May’s giveaway will be coming up next week – so stay tuned, get me in your reader, or just pop in once in a while – but it’s going to be a good one, I promise you!
