It’s here! This is the Giveaway you have all been waiting for! I am very excited to be hosting this great giveaway with many items from both Etsy and Facebook shops and boutiques, but first – the RULES. You can’t have any fun without first setting some boundaries, right? Please note that this is the first big giveaway that I have hosted so I’m still new to this! If there is anything I have left out, please let me know!
ANYONE may enter, but please enter ONLY under ONE username. Any person found entering the giveaway using more than one name / profile (thus gaining extra entries) will immediately be removed. Cheating will NOT be tolerated. Let’s make this fair for everyone!
I am not going to require that giveaway entrants “like” the donor’s Facebook or Twitter pages, “follow” their blogs or join their Etsy circles, but I strongly suggest that you do so to support these generous shop owners who have given of their time and energy to donate these items.
The Birthday Celebration Giveaway will begin today, Sunday, May 15th, 2011 and will continue until Saturday, May 21st, 2011. I will be listing each giveaway item as a separate blog post. Items will be listed as I’m able to do so over the course of the next couple of days so please continue to check back regularly for new items. All items will remain open to entries until the May 21st. All winners will be selected at the close of the giveaway (Saturday evening) and contacted within 24 hours. Giveaway winners will have 48 hours to respond with the necessary details to receive their prize. If there is no contact from the giveaway winner within 48 hours, another winner will be chosen and the prize will go to that person.
All winners will be selected by Random.org at the closing of the giveaway.
Each giveaway post will contain the details necessary to enter to win that particular item. Please read the details of each giveaway item carefully and follow the outlined instructions as they will differ for different items. Don’t worry – the entry process will be an easy one! Entrants will be required to leave a comment on each specific blog post to enter the drawing for that item. PLEASE be sure to include your email address in your comment so you can be contacted if your name is selected!! If you forget to include your email address when entering, please remove your comment (or send me a removal request so I can do it) and enter again. Multiple entries will be removed.
Enter as many separate giveaways as you like (you can win more than one prize), but please enter only ONCE per giveaway item (unless the rules for a particular giveaway include extra entries – in which case the details will be explained).
At the close of the giveaway all winners will be announced in a blog post and contacted via the email addresses provided in their entries.
I hope you will all be as thrilled as I am with the great items being offered for this giveaway! And if you like the items listed – let the creators know! Send them a note, visit their shops, become a fan or follower, shop their stores via the links provided in the blog posts. And please share this giveaway with your friends! The more the merrier!
And now… let the fun begin!! (See following blog posts for each individual giveaway item.)
