Merry Christmas to YOU!! (My First GIVEAWAY!)

A crazy thing happened to me the other day. I got an email from a promotion person from CSN stores, as seen here.


offering to do a small giveaway or product to review on my blog site! I am not even kidding.

And, you may know, I am a sucker for free stuff. So I was really really tempted to get myself a free little something to review on here . . . but then . . . you know, with it being Christmas and all, I thought I would share a little love and goodwill and give something away to YOU!!!

You, my dear faithful readers, however small in numbers, deserve it after all. You put up with my groanings and complainings, endure my babblings and musings, pretend that I'm interesting, contribute your thoughts and insights, and boost my vain ambitions to "have friends and influence people."

I thank you. This blog has been a life-saver for me in many ways and it would be nothing at all if no one read it. Seriously.

So, here's the deal. Here are the items which are being offered as a GIVEAWAY!! (I am just so excited!!!) One LUCKY WINNER will win ONE OF THESE products of their choosing:

1. SilverStone Simply Baking Nonstick Carbon Steel 12 Cup Muffin Pan 2. SilverStone Simply Baking Nonstick Carbon Steel 11" x 17" Cookie Sheet 3. Guidecraft Set 9 Mini Unit Blocks

4. Wild Republic Really Wild Bingo 5. Le Creuset Multi-colored Pinch Bowls (Set of 4) (1/4 cup size)
6. Mindscope Octacube 3D Puzzle

In your comment to me, merely mention which product you would like, if you win. I will use a random number generator to choose a winner, and as long as you live within the US or Canada, I will pass on your shipping info to my friendly contact at CSN stores and THEY WILL SHIP IT DIRECTLY TO YOU! (my apologies to Kelli, the only regular reader I know of outside the US) :)

HOW COOL IS THAT?!?

And, as most blog giveaways seem to do, if you post about this little giveaway on your blog, with a link back to this post, then you can receive a second entry into the drawing. Just leave another comment. OHH, YES!!!

The only catch is that you really must leave a comment on my actual blog. So if you are reading this on Facebook or email or elsewhere, click on the little spot that says "view original post" (or something to that effect) and it will take you directly to the blog where you can leave a comment. You can even comment anonymously (well, I do actually have to know who you are - but you are not required to have an account of any kind to do so). Any questions??

You have until midnight this Thursday night, Dec 18 2009 to enter. I will announce the winner Friday morning and then, if you're lucky, you might even get your prize by Christmas!! YAY!

Free Stuff, Free Stuff!!! :)

And be sure to check out some of these CSN affilliated online stores:

There's some great stuff!

Christmas Decorations

Cookware

Toys and Games

PS - ANYONE is certainly invited to enter - even if this is the first time you've ever visited my blog. You don't have to be a "regular faithful" reader. Just to clarify. :)

Hey Kristen! I'm the first one! Yay!

So I think my preference would be the Cookie Sheet. I need more than I have! The Cookie Sheet situation is getting desperate in these parts! :)

Ashley Case said...

I want the Le Creuset pinch bowls! Adorable little set and I already drool over Le Creuset products. Pick me! Pick me!

bonitinha said...

Oh man, I think I want one of each! Those blocks are temptimg, and so cute, but my muffin tins are in pathetic condition, so I'm going to cross my fingers for that lovely muffin pan. And even before this new development, I have to tell you that I've always loved your blog, so please keep right on spilling it for us. And with that shameful bit of flattery (which is 100% true anyway) pick me!!!!

Amber Baker said...

Love it, I take the bowls or pan. *Crosses fingers!*

Colleen said...

Cookie sheet! I can always use more of those.

Mary said...

What an example of the Christmas spirit you have! Now for my bad example: I, yes Me, numero uno, Mary, let MOI be the lucky one, I want the pinch bowls! If I add a big smile will I increase my chances? :-)
How about two? :-) :-)

Melissa said...

Finally! My other PC wouldn't let me post a comment. Count me in!

Michele P. said...

I have to bake cookies for Santa... my current cookie sheet is ready for the trash after my teen son's overflowing sauce incident-which resulted in a baked on, caked on mess that no amount of elbow grease would remove. Definitely the cookie sheet for my pick! Happy holidays to you!

Christina G. said...

hehe, what fun :-) It feels so awkward to say what I want, but hey, it's all part of the fun. So put my number in for the 3D puzzle.

The Case's said...

Oooh ooohh I wanna win. :)

The Case's said...

And it is posted on my blog so can I have two comments?

Kristen said...

Jason,
sorry but I'm afraid that since you share a blog with Ashley, I'll only be able to count that once (she beat you to it). :(

Jennifer said...

I would like the Le Creuset Multi-colored Pinch Bowls.

girlysmack said...

This is so cool! If I win, I'd love the bingo game. Or, at least, my kids would! ;)

Jared n' Heidi Case said...

Kristen said...

I'm adding a comment here for Alyssa, who left her comment on facebook (so it's legitimate). I know I said it had to be here. But I am making an exception for my friend I have known since I was 12.
It's my blog, so I can do that. :)

Christina G. said...

OK, so I posted about this on my blog, does that give me another entry?? This is too fun!
