An Etsy Give Away and...



a plea for help! ;o) 

First, I want to thank those of you who have voted for my blog each week on The Blog Guidebook's contest, "Top Blog of 2010!" This weekend my blog made it to the fourth round of voting. Wooo-hooo! The fourth round lasts until Friday, December 17th. At that time, the top 5 blogs will be announced! I'd love to make it that far! Since you've all been so helpful and I have to ask you once again to vote for my ever lovin' blog, I want to sweeten the deal for you...

I'm hosting a

Etsy Give Away! 

The person whose name is chosen will win a "gift certificate" that will enable them to choose one of any item in my Etsy shop. That's right! You could choose a tote...


a dwipe...


or a wristlet...


I will be happy to pay postage, and if you choose to gift it to someone else I'll be happy to send it directly to that person with a note from you! This Give Away is a "thank you" to those who frequent my blog and those who have voted (and will vote) for my blog on The Blog Guidebook's "Top Blog of 2010" contest! Your friendship is appreciated!


Here are the particulars...
  • Leave a comment below and you will automatically be entered into the contest.
  • If you would like your chances of winning to triple, go to The Blog Guidebook and vote for "Just Another Hang Up" for the Top Blog of 2010! (The voting box is in the middle column.) Then come back to this post and let me know you voted in an additional comment , and I will add your name an additional two times!  
  • No anonymous comments please! I need an email address or accessibility to a public blog. Private bloggers -- feel free to enter, but you'll need to leave your email address. If I don't have a way to contact you, your name will not be eligible. 
  • This contest will run through midnight on Friday, December 17th (mountain time). Saturday morning, December 18th, the winner will be announced.
Good luck!
