Last week CSN contacted me, asking if I would review a product or host a giveaway of a $150 gift certificate. My kitchen is already hopelessly cluttered with tools and gadgets, so I thought I would pass the gift certificate on to one of my humble readers. A small token of my appreciation.
You should all know really do appreciate your taking the time to follow and read the silliness I post here. When I started this blog it was purely for my own amusement, nothing more. I never expected to be one of those blogs that had followers. Now I look over at that right hand column and I am all astonishment. Really.
Don't worry, I haven't let it go to my head. I really am Ms. Humble. If anything, it usually just fills me with dread that I'll disappoint you and then you'll un-follow me. (Oh no. What did I do wrong…. wahhhhh) I can't handle that kind of rejection.
Wait, this is supposed to be about my giveaway and not my personal neurosis, right. Moving on...
So a $150 gift certificate! For the winner to spend as they please. I should note that the certificate doesn't cover shipping costs but most of the stuff on CSN has or qualifies for free shipping anyway, so no worries there.
So let's make this fun. What would you buy with $150? They stock just about everything from furniture and sectional sofas to pet supplies and housewares. They actually have over 200 different stores to browse.
I guess one of the first things I'd pick out would be a new marble rolling pin for working with chilled pastry. However at $9 that really doesn't make much of a dent in this gift certificate. So much mad-money to spend…this could be fun, right?
So think about what you would like to win and leave a comment below including:
- your email address
- what sort of baking/cooking from their housewares store that you really want or need. A copper bowl, a ice cream maker, or my rolling pin? This is just for fun of course, the winner can spend the gift certificate on anything.
- If you follow my blog or start following my blog I'll enter your name twice into my drawing. If you also follow on Facebook I'll enter you three times. Just be sure to mention that when you enter (To be fair, I will be verifying that the winner was entitled to however many entries they got).
I will write an email address for each entry on a paper slip and toss it into a bowl. I will select one of the slips on Tuesday June 22nd (you can post a comment to enter up until 11AM PST on the 22nd). This drawing is open to all my readers in the US and Canada.
Edit: Looks like I will be spending an entire day cutting out little slips of paper!
