My Birthday Giveaway!

I've actually got a couple reasons to celebrate.

First of all I'm about to hit my 300th post which is amazing. I can't believe I've had that much to even talk about because life around here can be pretty boring sometimes. (Like these dull, drab winter days with nothing exciting happening except SNOW!)

But the even bigger reason is because it's almost my birthday.
It's always fun to receive gifts but it's just as much fun to give.
So here is what I am giving!

Tree Hut Shea Body Wash & Body Lotion - Brazilian Nut Scent
The Hearthside Collection Candle with battery operated tea lite ( flameless)
A little wooden "Simplify" sign
God Bless the 'Ewe" SA stitchery

First of all I've got to tell you about the body wash and lotion. I received a set of this at Christmas and WOW what a smell. I wish I could bottle that scent and have it with me all day.
It smells THAT good!
Second, I have to tell you that the stitchery will not come exactly as shown. I am going to finish it into either a framed photo or as a pillow. I haven't decided yet but you all can help me to decide by telling me which way you would like to see it done.
Which would you prefer, a framed stitchery or a decorative pillow?
By the way I got that free pattern over at Sew Many Prims.

Now for the rules!
1. You must be a follower, if you are not then just click on my follow button over on the right.
2. You must leave a comment on this post only.
3. If you want to post about my giveaway I will give you a second entry. (Just be sure to drop me line so that I know that you have done so.)
4. The winner will be announced on my birthday~ March 13th.
Good Luck to all!

Well that it's for today. I've got to get busy on schoolwork with the kids. I am going to leave this post up for a few days and take a lil' break but I'll be poppin in on all of you to see what you are up to.

Have a great day!

Gosh, March 13th will be a LUCKY day for someone!!!

I love your choice of giveaway items. I think the "Ewe" stitchery ought to be a little pillow, then it could be moved around a lot, like on the bedpost during part of the year, then on a doorknob, etc. Because it is just too adorable.

OOOhhhhh, I think I smell that lotion from here:) Please enter me and I will post it on my sidebar! That stitchery is adorable and I'm thinking maybe a pillow too, like Holly said, so it can be moved around:)

First of all; I am a follower. I would most definitely post your blog on blog if I had one.
I love the give away. I have to agree with the other followers - a pillow would be wonderful.
We also share a birthday in March. Mine is the 11th. Have a wonderful and happy birthday.

Happy Early Birthday!! I would love to be entered in your giveaway! I think I would prefer the stitchery done as a pillow although either way would be wonderful! I am a follower and will post this on my sidebar on my blog! Have a great day!

Happy *almost* birthday! I am a March baby too. :)

I have really enjoyed your blog. Hubby and I made your pumpkin roll recipe for our Christmas dessert and it came out so delicious. It is definitely a keeper!

The stitchery is wonderful, I am a sheep lover and I'd love it as a pillow or in a frame!

Have never used the Tree Hut product, so maybe I will win.

Have been a follower for a while now and have really enjoyed it.

Posted about your give away on my blog.

Hi there! Just wanted to stop in and say "hi!" I know it has been a while. My cousin and I have set a goal for me to post once or twice a week, that way I don't feel like I am letting down my bloggy friends and my blog isn't become stagnant. :)

Have a great little break and I will talk with you again soon.

All of this technology is so hard to keep up with!!!!!!! Keeping my fingers crossed that I can do it. :)

Hugs and blessings,

I may be too late, but I think a pillow would be great. Do I get an extra entry for a poem? Happy to be a follower of your blog. Early happy birthday wishes!
