The giveaway poll results showed that most of you enjoy contests and giveaways on blogs, but your comments told me that you really do prefer easy giveaways, and that it's difficult to find the time to tweet a giveaway, go to a product website and pick your favorite, FB about a giveaway, blog about a giveaway, etc., etc. Which is understandable. We're all pressed for time these days. Goodness, I know I find it difficult to find the time to sit down at my computer and just visit/comment on all my favorite blogs!!! And I always enjoy finding NEW blogs, but where do I find the time for that too??
What I learned from your comments and what I'll try to do in the future... keep my giveaways simple, and for the most part, only include items that are hand-made and home-made by me! I've received a few emails from outside companies interested in having me promote their products. I think my rule of thumb on this topic is going to be ONLY if it's a product that is dear to my heart and that I can endorse whole-heartedly! And that hasn't happened yet.
So, moving on.... Mountain Woman of Red Pine Mountain is having a lil giveaway. Right now, she's giving away a dozen I Heart You cookies for YOU and a bag of Barnyard Pals for your furry pup friend. You have until next Friday, April 9th, to enter. She'll be having different giveaways the entire month, promoting fellow bloggers' handmade items, so you'll want to keep an eye on her blog - she just had a giveaway for a beautiful chicken nest box last week! I think it's a wonderful idea, and I wish I had thought of it first! :-) Check out her fresh new blog design while you're there. I'm lovin' it, and thinking that maybe it's time for me to freshen up my blog design... hmmm... not now, maybe later.
Y'all have a wonderful Thursday, wherever you are!
I just love our Kansas sunsets!!
