$25 Amazon Giftcard Giveaway: Springtime Blog Carnival

Photobucket
Image by jaycoxfilm

I'm so very glad that Laura took it upon herself to host a Springtime Blog Carnival! Woohoo!

Laura mentioned that she loves chocolate and aprons. Well, I've already given away a Marie Madeline Studio apron with the help of the lovely ladies there. And, I don't know about where you are, but here it's getting pretty hot, and chocolate would melt in the mail.

So, what to do? I decided on an Amazon gift card--that way the winner can get whatever suits her! (If it were me, I'd be going for books--but you probably already know that.) The giveaway is for a $25 Amazon gift card. This giveaway is open from now until this Friday, May 1 at midnight and is open to US and Canadian residents. If you're a Canadian, the gift card will be from Amazon.ca.

Some of you are probably new around here--just popping over from Laura's blog. If that's the case, welcome! I'd love to have you stay a while and poke around.
  • You can read more about my story and the purpose of Heart(h) Management here.
  • You can see some of my favorite posts here.
  • And you can browse through the current Heart(h) Management series, Homemaking: It's a REAL Job! here.
Alrighty, girls, here's how you can enter!

There are three ways to enter the giveaway and you can enter up to three times.

1. Leave me a comment below--please only one comment per person even if you do the other two things to enter. And please, please be sure I have a way to contact you! You need to have a Blogger profile with a valid email address or link to your blog OR you need to leave your email address in the comment itself--not just the comment form. (I don't have access to those email addresses.)

2. For a second entry, subscribe to my feed via RSS or via email--the email box is up in the sidebar underneath the coffee cup. There will be a secret code in the footer of the post in your feed reader or inbox that won't show up on the site itself. Email the code to me at hearthmanagement (at) gmail (dot) com. Put the quote in the subject line--I won't actually read the email! For those of you who are wondering what it means to subscribe, here's a quick explanation. Please don't comment to let me know--I'll get your email.

3. For a third entry, post about and link to the giveaway post on your own blog. Email me with your link in the subject line. Again, please don't comment to let me know--I'll get your email.

And that's it! Have fun! I'm off to check out some other giveaways over at Heavenly Homemakers!

Thank you for this. There are always things to get on Amazon! We just bought a vacuum cleaner from there. Free shipping to Alaska makes it so apealing. Thanks so much!

Supercool! Well, you just KNEW I had an Amazon wish list, right? Actually, I believe I've subdivided into 5 separate lists now - well over 200 items on my 'want' list - and this is the .ca site - books and music and movies only!
Hope I'm the winner!

I took a glance at your favorite posts. I loved "I'm a wreck, or "God's Grace for the Home Manager"" (I can relate...although I think I have one of THOSE DAYS most days, with the occassional together day once and a while.) But God reminded me lately that there's a reason asking for forgiveness is right there after daily bread in the prayer he taught us to pray...because we would fall short daily, and daily need his mercy and grace (and this is no surprise to him).)

Anyways, I hope you'll stop by my blog and leave a comment...mainly cause it will remind me to come back and visit later (I'd bookmark you but my bookmarks are so crowded I have to press the down button, leave and come back to get to the bottom).

We would be buying books at Amazon too! I always have a huge list of "wants" from there, and my children and I devour books like crazy!! My husband spends more time listening to audio books, since he drives 90 minutes one way to work, and is currently in school 2 night a week, which keeps him super busy!! Thanks for the giveaway!
