it feels like just yesterday but at the same time years ago that i started this blog adventure. but it was actually exactly one year ago today! happy birthday, cucicucicoo! during this year i’ve celebrated other blogs with their blog candies, so i decided to have one too and give something to three of my blog (or non-blog) friends to celebrate!
that something for the first place winner will be a set of 6 coasters made with chalk cloth. this type of cloth can be written on with chalk, just like a normal chalkboard. then you erase it with a cloth or you can clean it even better with a damp cloth.
you can write every guest’s name on them so you don’t get your glasses all mixed up, or just draw/write whatever you want on them.
then something that i know all of us need these cold wet days: cloth handkerchiefs. this is a set of 4 hankies (25 x 25 cm) made from super soft cotton flannel, super gentle on our poor red noses. i chose a cherry pattern to remind us of the colors and flavors of summer. (but if cherries don’t float the winner’s boat, i have other patterns that he/she can choose from)
here they are, ready to be used and loved!
or, if the winner prefers he/she can choose 3 cloth menstrual pads or 2 cloth pocket diapers that i have on sale in my online shops. right now i sell on
cloth pad shop* and etsy, but i confess that i need to update them. i also just opened a shop on miss hobby,* but there’s still hardly anything listed there yet. i promise that i will have the stores ready by the end of the giveaway in case the winner prefers this alternative.
the second and third place winners on the other hand will receive a set of 4 cloth hankies (again, with choice of pattern) and 2 reusable produce bags, like what i made here.
here are the rules of the game:
1. leave a comment on this post and become a follower of the blog or subscribe to its feed. you don’t need to have a blog to do this. and that’s all you need to do to enter the giveaway. if you don’t want to leave a comment for privacy reasons, just send me an email: email@example.com.
2. if, after you’ve become a follower of the blog, you write about this blog candy in your blog with the image of the candies above and a link to this post, i will put you in the running not once, but twice! (but please leave a link to your post in your comment here)
3. if, after taking care of points 1 and 2, you feel up to putting a link in your blog’s side bar with the candy image, i will enter you yet again. so, it’s possible to enter this contest a total of three times!
4. and that’s it! the deadline is 6 february 2010. the 7th i will check out how many “points” everyone has, i’ll randomly choose the winners and i’ll let you all know who the lucky three are! (change in plans! i’ve decided to count up all the participants and their points as we go along. check here to see if i actually counted right!) (another change in plans! for reasons that i wrote out here, the deadline has been changed to the end of the 7th of february 2010. an extra day!)
**just a little note: technically there are actually two blogs, this one in english and the one in italian. but the giveaway is just one. for me it makes no difference if you leave your comment on and link to the italian or english one, but i won’t enter the same person in twice as many times if you do it on both like a sneaky sneak!! 😉 (later note: since i wrote this originally, i’ve merged the two blogs together, so it’s not like this anymore!) (yet another note: now to see the other language you have to click on the little flag at the top of the page!)
so: get ready…set … GO!!!!!
*update: my shops at cloth pad shop and miss hobby are currently closed and/or without products. you can find the shop at Etsy.
