Spring Has Sprung Giveaway!!


I don't know about you all, but this has been a l o n g winter! It is finally, finally starting to feel like spring around here, and to celebrate...I'm having a giveaway!!

One lucky reader will receive all this loot!

Let's take a closer look, shall we? Up for grabs is:

a spring-y lined basket, jelly bean eggs, spring cookie cutters, cookie sprinkles, Reeses pieces in the cute carrot bag, a magnetic notepad, a copy of Jodi Picoult's The Pact, and a $10.00 Wal-Mart gift card!

Look at the cuteness of this gift card. It doubles as a red poppy seed packet. How clever!
Want it? I bet you do! All you need to do is leave a comment between now and 9:00 p.m. Thursday, April 9. Easy like a zucchini martini.

Ready?

Set?

GO!

Edited to add: First of all, I need to apologize to the people in the Midwest. About an hour after I posted this "It's finally spring" giveaway, I saw the weather report. Yeah. Here's Monday's forecast-

High: 38°Low: 30°

Light Snow

Flurries & snow showers

But, the giveaway goes on!

Secondly, apparently I need to be more thorough with my rules and regulations. Some people (coughSteffcoughcoughDeb) are anal and need firm guidelines. So here they are:

One comment per person.
Contest ends next Thursday, April 9 at 9:00 p.m. EST.
Winner will be chosen with the Random Number thingamajig.
I think that covers it. Now go forth and comment! But only once, you big cheaters.

Pin It!

Love the giveaway :-)

Vic said...

This is such a fun post! I actually was about to just say how awesome the photos were- I absolutely love spring!

♥Trina♥ said...

Pick me for these reasons: 1. I have never won a contest from a blog 2. I'm feeling very overwhelmed and it's just gonna get worse over the next 3 or 4 weeks 3. I love Jodi Picoult books and 4. I'll do my best to send spring your way. :)

Happy Spring (sort of)! lol

Tinabean said...

I am so hearing you on the long winter thing.
In fact I just did a post about it on my blog a few days ago.
We have snow right now about 40 mins away from my house, it hasn't hit here yet but I'm sure it will sooner or later.
I don't even see sun in our near future. :(

Kristi said...

Zucchini martini?!! Surely someone somewhere makes these & I'm now quite curious...

nikkicrumpet said...

Very fun giveaway...please count me in. And you probably should come over and check out the winners to my giveaway...YOU might find it interesting!

Caroline said...

That's a sweet basket full o' goodies that I could make good use of! The tiny bit of Martha Stewart that exists in me (the cookie maker, not the insider trading portion) thinks that making cookies in spring shapes would be super fun!

Hehehehehe! Thanks for the laugh as I sit in the MIDWEST and we are supposed to get 5-8" of snow tonight. I like snow, but even I'm tired of it.

I have a three year old, we say Easy-peasy, lemon squeezy. Like that zucchini martini, but she's not old enough.

Hope I win, can I enter twice? hehehe, just kidding, we contest enterers can be a tad bit s-l-o-w, can't we? Need to hit us over the head! Yup, ya do!
