Thursday - inspirations

Oh, so do I, so do I!

Okay my dear followers, I have a surprise today and it surprises me too.  I've never done a give away. 

I've been seeing that the CSN Store had been giving away gift certificates right and left to all my blog friends.

I mentioned this to Linda at A La Carte and asked her why or how she got it, that I had never been approached by them.

So what does my dear friend do, but on the bottom of her last one it asked if she knew anyone else that would be interested and she gave them my name.

What do you know, I was contacted.  I panicked of course - anything new is hard for me - but Linda said she'd help me.  And I do like to grow and learn new things so I've decided to do a give away.

It's a nice one too - it's for S55.00!  How awesome it that?  And with Thanksgiving coming up and maybe you need extra seating for your company - you could buy anything like counter stool or being it's almost Christmas  you could get yourself a present or you could buy something for someone else.  Doesn't this sound wonderful?

So let's see.  How long to run it.  Let's run it until November 10, 2010.  I will copy the names and have my grandson pick one on November 10th - I'll even take a picture of him doing it and show the name. He gets home round three so I'll close it at noon on the 10th.

You can enter every day starting on November 4th.  All in all you can have 7 entries. 

Now I am not saying you have to join my blog, but only followers can enter.  Why you ask - because I want to do something for them - I have some awesome followers and yes, new ones are allowed.

Okay - starting today - just say I want to enter - count me in and I'll count you in.


I have a simple philosophy: Fill what's empty. Empty what's full. Scratch where it itches.

Good Morning Sandi Sweetie...
How fun is this? I have never been approached to do a giveaway either. How fun to think of us followers. I do SO love to shop. That is my middle name. SSS - Sherry Shop Smith. So cute. Love it.

Hope you are well sweet friend. Have a gorgeous Thursday. We are expecting a beautiful day here in the valley.

Please enter my name into the giveaway. I will see you tomorrow. Many hugs and so much love, Sherry

Ooohhh! I hope you count me in even though I don't blog (and therefore can't officially "follow" you other than to check your blog every day).


Jane said...

I've been approached by CSN but honestly, to me, it seemed like too much work. However, I do like the looks of their stuff and have read very good reviews about them online!


Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

Awesome, Sandie!! I do love the Maxine for today!!! LOL!

Angela said...

Cool Sandie!

Please enter me!

CSN just contacted me out of the blue when they did. I've hosted 2 of their giveaways and I'm gearing up for a review.

Have a Great Day!

DaCraftyLady said...

Oh I want to enter too....its a wonderful get away!!! :D I love contests!!!

Debbie said...

Me! Me! Me!

I love to win stuff. It's just the thrill of victory. That fact that I mostly feel the agaony of defeat is irrelevant.

Knitty said...

I've just looked at CSN for the first time because of this. What a nice give-away!

I hope you'll blog about this experience afterward.

G'evening Sandie!
Think my mind went "out to lunch' last week and forgot to come back. I've missed soooo much!
Must confess, I've never heard of CSN ... but you know I'm intrigued! Must go check them out!Is Andy getting excited to be your "election" official?

Velvet Over Steel said...

I've always wondered about those... but haven't had to time to ask or figure it out. This is awesome!

Have fun with your give away, Sandie!!


Dogmom Diva said...

Sandie Sandie Sandie I am so excited that you got in touch with them..I have not seen anything in any correspondence with me asking for referrals..I love this company so of course I would like to win..but if some one else does I am so happy for them!


Treasures Evermore said...

I found your blog through Patti and just stopped by to say hello. I look forward to spending more time checking out your blog and getting to know you more.


Sharon Kirby said...

Yay for you trying something different! Who said you can't teach an old dog new tricks? (Did I say that out loud????) Just a joke, my friend...


Just Be Real said...

Came by to give you a hug and wish you the best on your giveaway. Blessings.

Granny Annie said...

Oh yes, enter me in the drawing. I think I was already your follower but signed up again, just in case. Neat idea.

varunner said...

I always wondered myself how so many people got those CSN giveaways. I've entered many of them but never won. Please count me in! :-)

A Hopeful Heart said...

Well, count me in. Though I must admit, I'm not a follower because I want to be entered in your giveaway. I'm a follower because you are my friend and I love you.

Have a wonderful day.


DaCraftyLady said...

Thena said...
