Drumroll please......my FIRST Giveaway!!!! (and the crowd went wild!!)

Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival ButtonI have just learned about the Bloggy Giveaway Carnival and am so excited to join in on all the giveaway fun! So here's what you can win right here at my blog.......

It is a recycled, reusable tote bag made from plastic WalMart bags!! It is water proof and very durable and you can use it for groceries or books or whatever you like.

In order to enter the drawing, you must post a comment to this blog entry and tell me what you have learned from my blog. Review the old posts if you need to, but I would like to find out what interests you most about my blog. That way, this giveaway will help me to help you.

I will only ship to U.S. addresses, so keep that in mind when entering. Also, I need you to leave an email so that I can contact you if you win. I will draw a random number on Saturday, April 26th to choose the winner.

Thanks for visiting my blog and I wish you could all win!! For more great giveaways (I mean HUNDREDS of them), go on over to the Bloggy Giveaway Blog and check them out.

You can find more recycled, handmade items over at Hope House's Etsy Store.

First, I love the recyled bag - did you make it yourself? I enjoyed looking thru your blog and one item of timely interest was your Kitchen Tip Tuesday - and freezing bananas! I have four in my kitchen that I hated to toss, but don't have time today to make muffins. You saved me! Thanks. I'll be back when I have more time to read!

I love these bags and wish I could make them myself.
I like reading all your frugal tips as we are trying to become more frugal ourselves but don't quite know the best ways to start. Thanks for the contest.

Kitchen Tip Tuesday :)

The first thing I recommend to all new bloggers is the site Blogging Basics 101. They teach you everything you need to know about having a successful blog and tell you how to do everything and anything to improve your current site. My immediate reaction is to get rid of the music. I don't know why but I just don't like someone else picking what I listen to while I surf. I always mute blogs that have music. About the bag: What a great idea. Don't just go out and buy a bag to use...make one from the old plastic bags you already have. Perfect!!!

There are lots of great things on your blog. I love the inclusion of the spanish word of the day. I liked the post about you & the kids taking the day off and going to the carnival, what fun! And making meatloaf cupcakes on April fools Day, well, thats something that I would do myself!!

I think your blog is great, I will visit again!

Love the recyled bag! What a great idea!

I enjoyed reading your turkey post, and your waffle post. You have a writing style that is easy to read (for me) and I love the humor that you use! I say, keep doing what you're doing. I might even come back for a visit ;-)

I enjoy your kitchen tip Tuesday....and just living frugally.

My 9 year old daughter would just LOVE this recycled bag. She has learned SO much about recycling in school that she herself has come home and talked so much about it that we have implements a lot of the stuff....

She LOVES it!

Please post directions IF you made the tote bag. I would love to make some myself.

I know that pray works so why are some people so surprised? Maybe they asked and never realized they were answered. No is an answer and have this instead is an answer.

Thank you for your offering.

Good luck to you

I like your frugal tips! I'm a huge cheapskate (and I mean that in the best possible sense of the word).
If I knew how to crochet I would make these bags for gifts!

I love your tips to save money, frugal here also. And what a cool bag, you can never have too many totes. I think my 11yo daughter is going to grow up to be a bag lady, she always has a bag or two filled with "stuff"!

Jenn said...

I enjoyed the kitchen tips! What a great bag!

Jinxy & Me said...
