Happy Blogoversary to Me and Presents for YOU---A Blogoversary Giveaway!

*imagine the tune to Happy Birthday to You playing*    



Happy Blogoversary to Me, Happy Blogoversary to Me, Happy Blogoversary to Meeeeeeeeeeeeee, Happy Blogoaversary to ME...and many more!

I can't believe it has only been a year since I started this blog. It feels like a lot longer! LOL. If you are a blogger, do you ever get that feeling with your blog? Like it's a part of your history and you can't remember when it wasn't there?

Anyway, in celebration of my Blogoversary, I am going to give away presents to you! I have a copy of Rebecca St. James' new album, "I Will Praise You" on cd to send to one of my winners. Awesome!

I remember going to a Rebecca St. James concert when I was pregnant with Ladybug and she jumped around the whole time I was standing up and praising Jesus. To this day, we LOVE Rebecca's Worship cd, and have even learned some of the signs to go along with the songs on it. I just received my copy of the new cd in the mail today, and have already listened to it twice! It's another keeper.

I also have a copy of one of my favorite homeschooling books (see my right sidebar to see all of them), Diana Waring's Beyond Survival: A Guide to Abundant Life Homeschooling, to give away to a second winner. Somehow, I wound up with two copies, and I want to bless some lucky person with one of them. You will love it. You can read an excerpt of it HERE.


I will randomly pick a two winners on April 15th. I will give the first winner first pick of which prize they would like. The second pick winner recieves whichever item is left.

All you have to do to enter is to leave me a comment to tell me which gift you would like. It's that easy. This is a required entry. If you fail to leave this initial comment, you are not entered. Okay? With this first required entry you MUST specify whether you prefer to receive the book or the cd. And please, make sure I have a clear way to contact you if you win (somewhere you must leave info that will link me to you).

IF you want to give me a present for my blogoversary, you can refer your friends and/or family members who are not already followers of mine to follow my blog, and if they mention your full name in their comment (and you have already entered with the required entry), then I will give you THREE extra entries...but they have to be a new follower for me, or it doesn't count. You can do this as many times as you have friends who don't already follow me and are willing to.

I'd love to go over 100 GFC followers for my Blogoversary, so tell everyone! Oh, and please remind them not to forget to tell me which gift they prefer, in addition to your name in their comment. Thanks.

There are a few more fun ways to gain entries. Do one of each and you will have TWELVE entries...one for each month I have been typing away at this blog! That would make your chances for winning pretty good, eh?

Thank you to all of you for reading and for commenting. Your involvement over this past year has kept me on my toes and raised my spirits often.

-------------------------------------------------------------

So, to recap...ways to enter my giveaway...one entry method per comment, please:
(and please, make sure I have a CLEAR way to contact you to notify you, or I will have to chose someone else to win)
  1. REQUIRED ENTRY: Leave me a comment to tell me which gift you prefer to receive, the Rebecca St. James CD or the Diana Waring book. Don't forget to specify, please!
  2. Check out Diana Waring's website HERE and sign up for her Highly Irregular Newsletter (you can view a sample of her December Issue by clicking on her right sidebar.) Leave me a message telling me you signed up (be honest!) and I will (honestly!) give you TWO entries.
  3. Leave me a separate comment to tell me you are a Google Friend Connect Follower (if you are!) and I will give you an entry.
  4. Leave me another separate comment and tell me you are a Networked Blogs follower, if you are.
  5. Once you have left a comment at least once, refer a friend (who has never followed me or commented on this giveaway already) to my giveaway, get them to follow me, then have them leave a comment containing YOUR name. I will not only give them their entry for following me (by whichever method they choose), but I will also give you THREE entries for telling them about my blog!
  6. Go to Facebook and click LIKE for Rebecca St. James HERE. Then leave me a separate comment saying you did this for another entry.
  7. Go to Rebecca's Listening Party HERE and listen to the first three songs of the album. Leave a comment telling me which one was your favorite and I will give you another entry.
  8. Last, but not least, mention my giveaway on your blog (with a link, of course), then leave a comment telling me you did it (and please leave me a link to the post) and I will give you TWO more entries. All those entries together makes TWELVE total...wow! You can get even more if you have more friends willing to mention your name. The entries are endless...It's like a fun party game, uh, sort of. ;-)
I hope to get TONS of entries for this giveaway...please, join in on the fun and let me make you happy with a gift for my Blogoversary. I love giving people presents, don't you? You give me presents with your presence each time you comment, and that makes me very happy.
Thank you.

Blessings,

Heather
