Blog giveaway!!

Two birds with one stone…

This is a double edged blog post. Firstly, I have recently joined a couple of blog-based Swap-Bot swaps, so I would like to say hello to Evey, Holly, Marie, Lori, Mercedes, Steph, Amanda, Beverley, Tajuana, and of course my good friend Jay who are my partners for the ‘Quickie Blog Swap’. Please have a nosey around my blog (I’m pretty new to it all, so it’s only little, but growing rapidly!). And I would also like to say say hello to my ‘Host a Blog Giveaway’ partners Evey (again!), Angelina and Courtney, all of whom will be hosting their own giveaways (more about that in a later post though).

The giveaway.

As part of the ‘Host a Blog Giveaway’ swap (can you guess where this is going?!) I have to host my very first blog giveaway! So here’s what’s on offer:


It’s an ATC I made with some of the contents of the first Swap-Bot package I ever received (you can see more about it in my ‘N is for…’ post from April). It’s one of my favourites, and I had been going to keep it for my own collection, but ATCs are meant for sharing, so it’s going to be given away to one lucky winner!

The rules are pretty simple. To enter my giveaway all you need to do is comment on this post. However, if you want an extra entry, you can follow me on Twitter and tweet a link to my blog (please copy me in on the tweet though so I know you’ve done it!). The maximum number of entries will be 2 – one for commenting here, and one for tweeting my link (you have to follow me too for this bit – I will be checking!). Please let me know your Twitter name in your comment too, it will make my life so much easier!

You don’t have to be a Swap-Bot member to enter – anyone can win. The winner will be chosen on June 20th using a random online generator (assuming I can suss out how to use one!).

Finally, in the spirit of blog sharing, I would like to share with you the blog links I have received so far in the Blog Swap, er, swap. So introducing (in no particular order)…

Mindy, a Single Country Chick

Sarah, a Conversant Californian

Annabell with her Book Nook

Colleen from Ukraine, with her art blog

Jessica and her multi-crafty blog

Angelina, with her Angel in a Glass Creations

Alyce, the craft gecko

Tresa, a speedy lady

Simonette, from the Phillipines, who says she’s Nowhere Near Perfect

Thanks for reading, and good luck in the giveaway!
