Finally back to the giveaways!!!

Life happens at a fast pace and sometimes gets in the way of other things, doesn't it? I had all great intentions of getting back yesterday and posting about the two or three giveaways......well, those intentions got way-laid by one or seventy two other life events. Daughter needed to go get a crucial part for the physics project that is due on Thursday......a crane! Dinner......well, these folks want to eat at EVERY meal......and then a church meeting. We are getting ready to move into a new church building that will render us "homeless and meeting in a school" no longer! We are all very excited, but it is a lot of work, lots of details which need attention, much planning to do, etc....So by the time I got home, I spent an hour sitting with the Mister doing absolutely nothing....we watched the new show, Castle, which is really quite cute. The blogging didn't happen.
Enough of that...let's get on to the reason you are here......the giveaway with which I teased you yesterday....oh, and those babies? They grow more adorable each time I visit. They are about to be on the move.......the tiniest, Briellen, has an army scoot that is unsurpassed. She has determination that will not be quelled. And the rest are figuring out she is going to leave them behind if they are not careful!!!
OH, yes, The giveaways....

The first one --Since so many of you commented that the Hoffman Publication I mentioned here is not available in your area.....well, I decided I'd just give one away!! Spring in a box, or envelope, you might say. The lucky winner will receive her own special copy of the Celebrate Spring publication. But be warned.....it's going to make you want to have a Spring PARTY!! just sayin......



The second giveaway....... is being sponsored (um, yes sponsored!!!) by Online Poster Printing

They are going to giveaway to one lucky winner a 16 x20 poster print of your own photo. Do you have a great family photo that you would love to enjoy in a larger size, perhaps to even hang in your home? Kristin at We are THAT family blog shows HERE one she had done by this company......it is delightful! ( And wouldn't that picture I showed you yesterday of the baby girls be delightful in a 16 x 20 print?? I'm telling you, you could wallpaper a room with prints of those adorables and be totally mesmerized!!!)

So you, too, can win such delight to add to your home's decor! Simply go on over to Online Poster Printing and check out their products and then come back and tell me what you would like to do with your FREE poster print if you should be the lucky winner. Will it be a botanical, a precious family picture, a pic of your favorite furry friend? Since Online Poster Printing is an awesome company where you upload your digital pictures and within 24 hours you will have your own poster print, don't forget to leave a comment telling me you'd like to win and what you will do with your print! You could have it by the END of the WEEK, people!!!

And for a double entry, go email or tell someone else about the contest and let me know about that, too. If we can get our entries up, perhaps they'd be willing to sponsor TWO giveaways!!!
And since I"m out of time, and real life is happening...(laundry awaits), I'm going to save the third giveaway until later this week. So to recap.....

First giveaway, The Celebrate Spring publication, that's going to make you want to par-tay....leave a comment and specify Celebrate Spring.....ie, Susie Springlover: Celebrate Spring....just like that, except use your real name if you seriously want to win!!!

Second giveaway, the totally awesome 16 x 20 poster print of your favorite photo being given away by Online Poster Printing--leave a comment with your name telling me what you'd do with your poster and also who you are telling about this special giveaway. ie, Susie Springlover: 16 x20 print of my azalea bush in full bloom and I"m going to blog about it and tell my two or five hundred readers.

EASY, isn't it? Good luck to you all!!!!
The winners will be drawn on Friday, and you could even add a comment each day until then and you will get a few more little entries into this itty bitty contest.......tell someone different every day and you will get a few more little entries into this itty bitty contest......just saying that if we work on it, it could turn out to be more than an itty bitty contest.......celebrate spring!

Wonderful giveaways! I don't know if we have that magazine in my area or not, I will have to check! I m actually just stopping by to say hi, because my hubby asked me not to sign up for giveaways, bummer! (Just because of giving away our address in conjunction with my blog.) But I wish I could!

A sponsored giveaway! You've hit the big time!! I would send in a pic of my kids for the 16x20 and hang it at the top of my stairs! I will post about this on our site for you! To tell our readers.

April said...

I would love to win both...Celebrate Spring and the poster! If I win the poster, I'd have one made of my girls and would definitely hang it in our family room! I'm going to put a post about your giveaway at the bottom of today's post! Thanks, Suzanne!

Karol said...

Can I enter for both? I will post about both giveaways on my blog.

I would have a poster made a beautiful Gulf of Mexico sunset I have taken a picture of or a sunset over one of the dune lakes here.

I would L-O-V-E to win the Celebrate magazine. I am trying to plan a birthday party outside for my daughter who just turned 10. We celebrated with family already, but I want to invite some of her classmates and have a pretty, but simple party outside soon.

Thanks for doing these giveaways!

I would do a 16x20 print of our wedding photo where we're standing in front of the Austin Lake and all the flowers in my bouquet are just brilliant and gorgeous!

Mommy said...

Well okay, Miss Suzanne...I'll play it your way BUT if you wanted to know why I "deserve" the Celebrate Spring magazine it's because it's 22 dern degrees here today with the wind blowing a gale and light snow! :(

Please enter my name in the drawing. If I were to win the poster, it would be of my most darling little grandsons to put on a newly hung shelf in my family room.

GREAT giveaway! I'll post this on my blog!

Hi Suzanne --
I am FINALLY sending out your Craft It Forward giveaway plaque. Sorry it took me so long. The handle was a little wonky, so I fixed it.

I know I had your address, but I must have accidentally deleted it. Can you send it to me again? I will send it out tomorrow.

XOXOXO

You cracked me up about people around there wanting to eat EVERY meal! That's the way it is here. Sometimes I would rather miss one or two!

Jayne said...

Cool give-aways! I'd like to play too :)

Shelly the Chic Crafty Chick

I'd love to win the poster to have a cool poster print done of both of my boys. It would make an awesome conversation piece.

Paula said...

Great prizes! I'd like to play along with you.

Yankee Doodle said...

Don't let Donna get you with the 22 degrees stuff. Its nearly zero here today and the snow is blowing sideways at 40mph. I NEED the spring party magazine to have hope that spring will eventually come to my part of the world.

The poster is a wonderful idea Suzanne, I guess if I were to win I would use it for one of the family photos taken at my son's wedding. My mama's eyes are so bad she can't see the smaller prints but I bet a poster size for her living room would do the trick.

Donna@designson47thstreet said...

Okay Yankee Doodle, you win! :) And I'm glad!!

Suzanne, I stopped by to sign up for your drawing on a different day. No new post from you but I'm checking in anyway. 23* here today AND the sun's out!

Jayne said...

uh oh. I'll make Donna and Yankee Doodle jealous. It's 83 here today!

Paula said...

I did a post for your giveaway! Your prizes are great! You know that I really would like to have that magazine!

Ginger Cookies and a Good Book said...
