Big Blog Giveaway (part one!)


Yes, you read that correctly. This is part one of the BIG BLOG GIVEAWAY! Sorry for the shouting but the phrase big blog giveaway makes me think of Al Roker giving the Sunday football forecast on the Today Show on Fridays.

So I'm now 37 years old. Whoo. Where did the time go? Anywho, to celebrate, I baked 7 dozen cupcakes so I can jazz up a bunch of 7th graders. And because I can't give all of you lovely readers a cupcake I'm having a BIG BLOG GIVEAWAY! And I'm doing it in two parts so that there's plenty of opportunity to win.

Prize #1 is this oh so cute cupcake pincushion that I made just for this giveaway. Yeah, my mom made one for me for Christmas and I decided that it's so cute that I had to give one away. Not the one she made me. I'm using that one. By the way, these are filled with walnut shells to keep the pins sharp, but if you're allergic to nuts that might not be such a good thing.

Prize #2 is this cute set of cupcake potholders and cupcake liner bowls. I saw these and thought that perhaps some of you happy cupcake bakers might really like them.

So yeah that's it for part one. But I'll be announcing part two next Tuesday. How do you win one of these fun prizes? Well leave a comment and let me know which prize you would prefer. That's it. Super easy. And on Monday night I will have the random number generator pick out the winners. SO you have until 5:00pm Eastern Standard Time on Monday January 26th to leave a comment.

Happy happy birthday! I love the pincushion, btw, but mostly I just want to wish you a super duper happy birthday :)

Amanda said...

Ooooooh, I'd love to have that pincushion!

And Happy Birthday. My 37th year is ending, so I feel your pain. I do. Really. How can someone who feels 27 possibly be 37?

Happy Birthday Cupcake! Did you know they're having a parade for you? Did you get a big new Cadillac, too? One with 5-inch thick doors? Wow!

You don't look a day over 25! Just as cute as those giveaways, you are. I'm partial to the potholders and bowls (not being the crafty, pin-using type).

Happy birthday!

Happy Birthday! Cupcakes are so joyful, aren't they? They make me happy, especially eating them, but I love all the crafty things too. Hope I win. cdziuba@aol.com

Happy Happy Blogiversary/Birthday chica!! You know I adore both prizes. I mean. Come on. Cupcakes! But I totally need that pincushion. I don't sew but my seamstress (she helped me with my wedding dress and now hems all my pants b/c I am... ahem... vertically challenged) would love it! If I don't win maybe your mom would be willing to accept a commission to make me one anyways? ;)
