Blog Giveaways Galore

Marilyn at A Mixed Bouquet is about to celebrate her one year blogiversary. She's a very good friend of mine. We ran the Homeschooler's Curriculum Swap together for six years (through December of last year). It was challenging and fun, and we forged a strong bond of friendship in the process. Marilyn was the driving force behind me finally getting my own blog up and running. She's been a great prayer partner, too.

Leave a comment on Marilyn's blog between now and midnight (Central time) Monday the 22nd, and you can win a free Ayiesha Woods CD, and she will tuck in a few other goodies in the package.

While we're on the subject of blog giveaways, I'd like to tell you about a couple more.

I just love homemade soap, especially food scented ones. Kay, over at
The Rustic Cottage is having a First Day of Fall Giveaway. In honor of her favorite season she's giving away one bar of each of her new Fall scents - Pumpkin Spice and Chai Tea. If you're the lucky winner you'll get two bars of soap! Just leave a comment on her blog between now and Monday the 22nd, link back to her giveaway on your blog and she'll draw for the winner first thing on Tuesday morning. Kay's uplifting posts which share her faith and love of God and family make for a warm and welcoming blog; I'm sure you'll enjoy your visit there.

Thirdly on my list of fall giveaways is happening at a new-to-me blog, Just Another Hang Up. The blogger's name is Suzanne, and she makes the most awesome bags. I kid you not, they are gorgeous. I'd like to buy every one she makes! The "Retro Fall Flowers" bag below is the one she's giving away this month. Her contest will run through midnight, Sunday the 21st.

Visit each of these blogs for their individual contest rules. I hope you win. If not you, then me! ;-)


Let no foul or polluting language, nor evil word nor unwholesome or worthless talk [ever] come out of your mouth, but only such [speech] as is good and beneficial to the spiritual progress of others, as is fitting to the need and the occasion, that it may be a blessing and give grace (God's favor) to those who hear it.

~Ephesians 4:29 Amplified Bible

Do you remember seeing a blog with a recipe for Breakfast cookies...not too long ago? I'm trying to backtrack and I can't find it...'s tough to loose the old memory...I really want to use it in my Fitness class!

Marilyn has a great recipe blog. And her new blog design is super pretty. Thanks for turning us on to them. I really hope I win that bag......

You are the sweetest ever to share these links with us. And you're prompting me (once my cabin is built) to make giveaways. :o)

Thanks so much for posting about my giveaway. Small blogs need the attention. LOL! I've added a pic of the extras, too!

Now that my internet is working I can visit the other contests! I'm glad to see that I didn't miss them!

Thanks, Linda! I'm working on getting more recipes up there. Some cucumber ones this week. We raise 360 acres per year for a pickle company. :D

Mmmm. Soap and handbags! Two of my favorite things. Seriously! I have a little bit of a handbag fixation, and I too make soap. Must get to the shop and buy scents. I haven't made any in far too long!
