Winning and Giveaways

It’s so much fun to give away stuff, but it’s also fun to win. Here are a couple items I won recently.

This book is from Craftside blog. If you love crafts and craft books, check out this blog. It is one of my daily reads, and they often have giveaways.

This is a great book. I’m so into surface design lately.

Then I commented on a the Bonnie Bath blog and won the following:

I received 1/4 cup of each of these herbs and botanicals: Pink Rose Petals, Red Rose Petals, Jasmine, Chamomile, Organic Calendula, Organic Spearmint, Organic Peppermint, Organic Nettle, Organic Orange Peel, Organic Rosemary, Organic Lemongrass, Organic Eucalyptus, Patchouli, Organic Hibiscus, Organic Poppy Seeds, Lavender Buds, and Organic Meadowsweet.

If you are interested in this sampler package you can buy it from Bonnie Bath for $10 plus shipping. They also have a great selection of handmade soaps, bath and body care products, and aromatherapy for the home.  I’m looking forward to using some of these in future soaps and body care products.

There are a lot of websites that give away items. One of my favorite giveaway blog (although I’ve yet to win anything!) is By Hand Giveaways which only lists giveaways of handmade items. If you have a handmade item you’d like to give away, they will feature it and list the link to your blog. A great way to increase your traffic.

That brings me to giveaways here. If you follow me, you know that I’ve been reviewing craft books, some of which I’ve given away. I have several more of those books and even a craft product to give away later on in this month and in October. Sometimes it takes me awhile to get around to the review since I want to take time with the book or video and give it my best, and I like to make something from the book. But you will be seeing several of these products soon.

I’m off to see what I can make with my new herbs and botanicals. Have a great first day of September.
