I, for one, am always up for a chance to win something. Sometimes it doesn’t even matter what it is, or if it’s something I’d ever use. Luck doesn’t seem to be with me though – the only thing I’ve ever won (despite throwing my name in any number of drawings) was a large, not so attractive, stuffed rabbit. I’d post a photo, but unfortunately it was years and years ago, and I think that rabbit found a better home with someone else long ago.
(I guess I should note that just today I received a package with a free bottle of multi-vitamins. It doesn’t really count I suppose, since it wasn’t a contest, just a freebie from the web. I didn’t expect to actually get them though, so standing out there by the mailbox, I acted as though I had won something… the neighbors think I’m a bit crazy!)
In any case, I’ve been entering many blog giveaways, but still have nothing to show for it. I guess if I’m not going to win, then maybe someone reading my blog should. Here are a couple giveaways you may want to enter –
Amber at One Shabby Chick is giving away a beautiful handmade quilt. It looks to be made of fabric from the new Anna Maria Horner garden party line, and would certainly look great on my bed! Here’s hoping. If I had put in all the time required to make a quilt, you can be sure I wouldn’t be giving it away (This might be called “don’t look here for a quilt giveaway!” or “other bloggers are much nicer”)
Another giveaway I entered is over at Juicy Bits. Jess has put together a great assortment of crafty items, including a number of lovely fabrics, a couple of zip pouches and a cute patchwork belt. I’m sure I could put all these items to use! (pick me!)
That’s all for now. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I win something!
