Giveaway with Three Winners and Multiple Chances to Win!

As I mentioned previously, I'm having another giveaway. This one will run until the first day of Spring, March 20th. I haven't decided how the prizes will be divided up yet amongst the three winners, but the 1st and 2nd place will get more of a choice.

Here are a few of the giveaway prizes:

A wooden tissue box holder that's been painted to look old. Also, the rag quilt table top under it:
A better picture of the table top:
Easter eggs! I'll be primming some up. Some are like foil, and some are a funky alcohol ink design that I'll have a tutorial on All Thumbs Crafts soon.

Crow candle in chocolate brownie scent. It's been rubbed with coffee. (I'll put a wick in it before I send it - lol)!
Painted paper mache boxes (one to each winner - at least I know how I'll be splitting that one up)!
A painted to look old frame with scrapbooking easter eggs inside:

And decorative grubby Spiced Cranberry "candles" with twigs as wicks:


I also have rag balls and waxed Spiced Cranberry scented rag balls. I'll take pictures of them shortly and update this post.

Anyone can join, even internationally. If I have an international winner(s), I will pay $15 towards the postage. You will have to cover the difference.

Okay, sooooo...what's this all about with three winners and multiple chances to win?? First of all, you must be a follower of this blog to qualify, as well as leave a comment in this post only regarding the giveaway.

Multiple chances come in various forms:

1. An extra chance if you're a follower of Craft Supplies Sales and Resources.

2. Another chance if you're a follower of All Thumbs Crafts.

3. Another chance if you're a follower of Sunburnt Cow Handmade Shop.

4. Another chance if you're a follower of Handmade Teddy Bears and Raggedies.

5. Another chance is you subscribe to North Pole Diaries.

6. Another chance is to link this giveaway into your sidebar.

Now here's where multiple, multiple chances to win come into play. I'd like to make my Craft Supplies Sales and Resources blog a good resource for those of us who are creative, so I need help with that. If you know of any places that you order craft supplies from, leave a comment for that. I'll check them out, and if they have a newsletter or affiliate opportunities, I'll give you credit for that. But it's on a first come, first basis. Additionally, I may also have them listed on the blog already, so that won't count as a chance. The blog is relatively new, though, so it's fairly wide open when it comes to these chances.

Also, I want tutorials, so it's your chance to show off your stuff on that blog! Comment here leaving a link to any of your tutorials, and I'll compile a list about them and also make a blog post regarding them on the craft supplies/resources blog. I will, of course, link back to your tutorial(s), so you'll not only be getting an extra chance to win, you'll also be getting a blog link which will bring traffic to you!

If you know of a website that contains a bunch of tutorials, let me know, and if I haven't posted it on the crafts supplies blog, I'll give you credit for that. If you know of someone who has a great tutorial, I won't count that until that person gives me permission to post their tutorial on my crafts blog. They will have to come here and comment (or email me). Please make sure they know that they'll have to mention that you sent them here, and I will give you both an extra chance (or just you if s/he doesn't want to enter).

Another blog I need help with is my North Pole Diaries. If you can leave a comment suggesting a possible subject for me to write about (as Mrs. Claus, Santa, or even an elf), I'm all ears. I also need kid friendly crafts and simple recipes that kids can make with an adult. These need to be geared towards children who are at the age where they believe in Santa, so nothing too complicated or anything that involves cooking over a stove. I know some crafts have the adult boiling something, but I'm not interested in that. More baked things because an adult can just pop it in the oven without worrying about a child running around and maybe spilling the boiling pot. (I hope that makes sense)!

Whew...I hope I explained this in a coherent fashion. It sounded good in my head...maybe it won't translate so well in written form. I'll probably have to edit this several times to be clearer as questions are asked!

Okay, so how the winners will be picked is the person with the most usable suggestions ("leads") for one or both blogs wins. The second place winner will have the second most usable suggestions. The third winner will be picked via random number. EDITED: I won't be deleting the comments with the leads. I was thinking that'd help me better with the random number pick, but that doesn't make sense as I have to keep a separate tally of all the multiple chances you already had for following my various blogs and/or posting it on your sidebar. So I'll leave the comments as they stand, but I will put a tally at the end of this post for the extra chances from "leads."

So to recap...multiple chances to win. Make one post to let me know you're a follower of this or any of the other blogs. Also in that same comment, let me know if you've linked about this giveaway in your sidebar.

Then post your suggestions ("leads") in separate comments. If you have more than one, you can post them all in one comment. Comment as many times as you'd like, whenever you find a "lead."

Okay...any questions - lol! I'm sure this is clear as mud!

Deb - 1 extra chance
Trish - 1 extra (I already follow Factory Direct)
Lori - 1 extra

Another edit: whatever link(s) you suggest for various resources or tutorials, I will also make a post about it on my craft supplies and resource blog and give you credit for letting me know about them! More chances for links back to your blog!

Edited again to add: In some ways, you could say that you're getting a little bit of a win with each lead you provide, due to the fact that I'll be linking to your blog on the craft and, where feasible, the north pole blog.

Additionally, I will add more prim items for the winners to choose from. I'll post pics of these as soon as I get them finished!

More prizes added to the giveaway
- rag quilt up for grabs if this giveaway collectively generates 100+ leads amongst all the entrants.

  12. Ok I need help with the html for posting the link.

  13. Hi, Phyllis -

    If you could have Amelia email me or comment here that it's okay for me to put her blog on my craft resource blog, that'd be great!

    Re. the html, did you mean the link to my giveaway? If so, you can just put it as a "list" item under the "Add a gadget" module when you're in "Design" mode on your dashboard. That would show up in your sidebar. Or, if it's easier, just write a blog post about it, linking this specific post. :)

  16. Hi, Rhonda -

    If you could give me the urls to your specific tutorials on your blog, that'd be great! I do have your cool tutorial on how to grubby candles on the craft supplies/resource blog. I didn't see any labels for "tutorials," so I can't look them up that way.

    Thanks,
    Tracy
