April at April Showers is offering to design a signature or blog button for everyone who follows the directions she's left on her post for signing up. It's that easy! To get yours, click on the link after her name and it'll take you right to her post. Thanks, April!

I don't often blog about giveaways I enter, but here's one where you can win a Wii or an Ipod. The site looks really interesting and informative,too, so I'll be going back to spend some time looking around. The website is called Christian Personal Finance...click HERE to check it out!
Yes, I won! An 8" digital photo frame by Hewlett Packard. And it's a nice one ...wireless, interchangeable frames,512 MB (about 1000 photos), remote control, etc. Thanks to Andrea at Momma's Reviews for hosting the giveaway!
Resourceful Mom (aka Amy) could use your help in meeting her fund raising goal for Team Emma. They will be walking in the March of Dimes Walk at the end of April. Her family has experienced the wonderful things this organization does first hand and is giving back by helping to raise funds. You can read their story HERE and they will be grateful for any donation you are able to make. You can donate by clicking the link or by using the widget that's posted on the right sidebar. To sweeten your day, Amy is also giving away a VADO pink digital video camera that has been donated by New Baby. You do not have to donate to enter the drawing, there are other ways to win...but I know Amy will appreciate it if you do. Thanks!! (Entries for the drawing end April 10th.)
BTW, I also won a prospective jury summons from the US District Court in Great Fall, Montana! Normally, I would be a little excited about this. A federal district court has the potential for some interesting cases on which to serve. But...the travel from OKC and the time away from John makes it a little daunting. I'm hoping I'll be excused this time!
Momma's Review is giving away a ClickFree DVD backup package and she's not making it easy. For this one you have to write a haiku as your entry. OK, I admit it...I had to check Wikipedia to review the haiku rules! So here's mine...
Tears fill up my eyes
Though disc has dumped it’s contents
Smiles still in my heart
Go ahead, give it a try! Click HERE to get to the contest post!
This time it's a set of 5 DVDs for preschoolers from Lots To Learn ...
Thanks to Jentifa at The Dirty Shirt for the giveaway! I know a preschooler in Puyallup that I'm sure is going to enjoy these!
When I was a little girl I use to watch my grandma quilt. She'd have her quilting frame set up in the living room and we'd talk and visit while she stitched. I can remember going to quilting bees at the womens group in the valley where she lived with her. She saved all her sewing scraps for those quilts. I still have the one she made for me when I was a kid and a couple she made for my kids. She used scraps left over from some of the many dresses she made for me and that makes them even more special. I've always wanted to learn to quilt. There's a quilting group in the Tobacco Valley I can join and they teach beginners, so that's on my list of things to do when we return to Montana. So, I entered to win this giveaway at Berries and Cream Blog Design and won! Time to get started!Thanks to Linda and Revka for the giveaway!
This morning I received an e-mail from Amanda at Amanda: A Stay At Home Mom's Point of View that I am the winner of two rolls of custom printed wrapping paper from iWrapped. I'll have a hard time choosing! Thanks, Amanda! This is win #6 in 6 days! I'd better check to see if Oklahoma has a lottery or plays Powerball!
This time it was a giveaway for Piggy Paints , all natural nail polish meant for little girls. I'll be sharing with a couple of little girls I know...Someone else had originally won this giveaway and did not respond in the alloted time, so Erin at The Mom Buzz decided to do a "live" giveaway. You'll see them every now and then in the giveaway blogosphere. I saw it just as she announced it on Twitter and jumped in. The 50th comment would win the prize and there were rules as to how to comment and how many times in a row you could comment. I was able to "earn" the right to keep commenting and talk about anything I wanted by entering a couple of other giveaways and letting her know where to find those entries. Sounds complicated, but easy if you just read and follow the rules. So I typed quickly and watched the comment numbers climb...and hit #50. Winner! Thanks, Erin!
The one household product I use more than anything is Windex. I use it on windows, mirrors, countertops, sinks, faucets,bath tiles, spills on tile floors, appliances, plastics...I go through gallons of the stuff. So why am I telling you this? Because Alice at We Heart Household Products just started her blog and because in celebration she is giving away a Flip video camera :) If you'd like to enter, click HERE and let her know what your favorite product is! Be sure to check out the rest of her blog while you are there!
Win #4 this week! This morning I won two matching Tahitian Black Pearl bracelets from Mom's Most Wanted ! It really does pay to enter, but I've also really enjoyed reading the reviews and finding some favorite new products, sellers, and web sites....and making some new cyber friends along the way! Check out Mom's Most Wanted blog by clicking the link above or the button on the left sidebar! Thanks again, Mom!
I won another giveaway today! I know a six year old who will be excited when Grandma hands this over :) Legend and I were introduced to Veggietales when he was three and we took our first road trip that involved just the two of us. He had been visiting us in Washington and I was taking him home to Mom (who was at a family memorial in California at the time). I thought I'd better take something besides books and small toys to entertain him, so I picked up a CD. I put it in shortly after we hit the road and we ended up singing the "Hairbrush" song along with Larry the Cucumber all the way to southern California...at the top of our lungs! Thanks to Kailani at An Island Review for the great job she does and the awesome giveaways and reviews! You can check her blog out by clicking the link or her button on the left sidebar!
Every now and then you see me post about someone giving something away on their blog giving you the chance to enter. There's a whole world of reviews and giveaways out there in the blogosphere. You can win everything from coupons to cameras to gift cards to the Ipod Touch. In the past I've won a Nintendo DS game, CDs, and kitchen tools among other things. A couple weeks ago I won 2 pairs of Ihear earphones. They are very cool and they have self limiting volumes of 85 decibels to protect your hearing. They are made especially for kids, but work fine for adults, too. I'm keeping the white and pink ones for myself...guess who's getting the black and red ones :) Well, look at what I won today! I'm so excited! This is the Central Park bag from Nest Bags (retails for $78) and it's going to be mine. Sending huge thanks to Susannah at The Funky Monkey . She has awesome giveaways and they're easy to enter. You can also get to her site by clicking on her button in the left sidebar. Thanks again, Susannah!

You will be posting in a place that is accessed by the public, so they ask that you not leave names, etc...Thanks!
There were almost 1500 giveaways in the carnival this week. My eyes and typing digits are just about about worn out reading and entering contests, but it's been a lot of fun. I hope to participate with my own giveaway next time now that I know about it. Most of the contests have ended and the drawings have started. I've already been notified of 2 wins!! I'll keep them to myself for now in case I win any more in the next day or two and then I'll let you in on what I've won. For now, let's suffice it to say that one 6 year old boy I know is going to be a happy camper!!
NOTE: As of today (Nov. 17th), I have removed most of the posts regarding this carnival since the links were no longer good and most of those giveaways have been awarded. Watch for the next Carnival at the end of January!
