Bloggy Giveaways Carnival ~ Barnes & Noble Gift Card!! – Time’s UP!

Posted by Carol on January 25, 2009

Time’s Up! Thanks so much for all your great book suggestions! I have already read some of them, but you reminded me of some I probably want to read again. If you haven’t already, I suggest you take a look at the comments and start reading something!

Anyway, the moment you’ve all been waiting for…..(drum roll…..) Random.org helped me pick commenter #86, better known as Icedream,  as our winner.  I will try to contact you by email for your snail mail address. Congrats!  To see who won all the other awesome Giveaways, click here.


Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival Button

I almost missed this quarter’s Giveaway Carnival. It just sort of snuck up on me. What a shame that would have been if I had missed it, because you would have missed out on a chance to win what I think is a pretty nice prize, if I do say so myself!

I am offering one lucky winner a $25 Barnes and Noble gift card. The cool thing is that even if you don’t have a Barnes and Noble store near you, this card can be used on their website – bn.com

There are 3 ways to enter this giveaway for a total of three chances to win.

  1. Leave me a comment recommending a book you think I should read this year and why.
  2. Subscribe to my blog and leave me a second comment letting me know you did.
  3. Go to the TBloG and subscribe to its feed, leaving me another comment to let me know you did. (If you want to leave a comment there, too, that would be great, but I can’t count it toward the contest.)

If you’re already a subscriber here and/or at the TBloG, just let me know and that will get you entered as well.

That’s all.  I will randomly choose a number on Friday evening, January 30th at 10 pm EST. Whoever’s comment matches that number will be the winner. It’s that simple.

I will post the winner at the top of this post as well as contact them by email.

For more super great and generous giveaways, check out the Bloggy Giveways Carnival!

Bloggy Carnival Winners Announced!!

Posted by Carol on November 1, 2008

I wish I had baskets and coffee for everyone, but I think my son would get fired if I tried to get that much free Starbucks coffee.  And baskets, alas, I only have three of them to give away.  (Sigh)

Using the ever trusty Random Number Generator at Random.org –

Here are the three winners of the Chex Mix Basket of Indulgence:

97. Hope-Anne

98.  Suzie G

145. Leona P

And the winner of One Pound of Starbucks Coffee is:

199. Chantelle

I will contact the winners by email for their mailing addresses!

Thanks for playing and let’s do it again next time.  Hey, maybe we should pray that College Son gets a promotion. Maybe I could get more coffee that way!

Bloggy Giveaways Carnival ~ One Pound of Starbucks Coffee :: Time’s Up!

Posted by Carol on October 27, 2008

I love my son dearly, yes I do, but one of the best reasons for keeping him on the dole is that he works at Starbucks.  Did you know that as an employee of Starbucks he is entitled to 1 free pound of Starbucks coffee PER WEEK?!  We love coffee just as much as the next family, but frankly, we can’t keep up with all the coffee.  It’s a terrible problem to have. I know you feel so sorry for us!

Well, we’re sharin’ the love – of Starbucks.  One caffeine loving reader of mine will win one (1) pound of Starbuck’s coffee. 

To enter, leave me a comment and let me know if you are the winner, if you would prefer your coffee ground or whole bean,  decaf or regular. 

Sorry, I can’t let you ask for specific blends, because not all are available to the baristas. Winner must have a US address and will be announced on the evening of Friday, October 31st.

Be sure to check out my other giveaway – Chex Mix Basket of Indulgence and head on over to Bloggy Giveaways for more cool things to win!

Posted by Carol on October 27, 2008


Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival ButtonIt’s that time of year again for the Bloggy Giveaways Carnival! It feels like we just had the last one last week. Time truly does fly when we’re having fun. 

For this Carnival, three (3) winners will each receive a Chex Mix Bars Basket of Indulgence.  Each basket includes a box of tasty Turtle Chex Mix Bars, chocolate candles, caramel lotion and spa essentials like a loofah, hand massager, nail brush and spa towel. 

New Chex Mix Bars combine crunchy Chex pieces, pretzels and peanuts with chewy and indulgent ingredients like caramel and chocolate.  And if that’s not enough, they have less than 150 calories per bar and provide at least 8 grams of whole grain per serving.

I have tried these bars and they are dee-lish!!

Well, I Guess I Should Announce a Winner

Posted by Carol on April 26, 2008

First of all, I want to thank everyone that took the time to comment on my blog during the Bloggy Giveaways Carnival.  Even though I kind of bribed you with the promise of a gift card, I truly wanted your feedback and boy, did I ever get feedback!  I have already made some of the changes you suggested such as adding a feed button and then moving it higher on my sidebar.

You seem to enjoy pictures, which I know is my weak point. There are two reasons for the lack of pics on my blog. The first reason is that I don’t like to read blogs that have an over abundance of pictures, so I am already disinclined to put many pictures up.  The second reason is that I flat out don’t know how.  But you asked for it, so I will stretch myself and try my best to learn.  So be sure to check on my progress often.

You have spoiled me with all the comments, so please don’t be strangers and come back often to say “hi”.  I’ll be sure to do the same for you!

Well, I suppose I ought to announce the winner of my Bloggy Giveaway Carnival.  So, here goes: 

I retired my previous random number generator I affectionately call my husband and used the actual computer one at random.org and it came up with the number that matched the comment that Terry made.  Go check out her blog sometime at http://mzzterryz.blogspot.com/  So congrats, Terry!  I sent you an email asking for your choice of gift cards and your address!

Thanks again for a fun blogging week!
