Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival Button

This week I am participating in the Bloggy Giveaway Carnival. I am giving away multiple items, thanks to many generous vendors who have given me some interesting goodies in the last few weeks.

What will you win? Well, this is an envelope giveaway, which means all the items are small enough to fit in a flat envelope. (That keeps postage affordable for me, and means that international readers are welcome to play along too.) The more comments I get, the more prizes I’ll give. But here’s the catch. Your comment number has to end in a ‘1’ for you to win a prize.

You may win more than one prize if you’re lucky, but you are only allowed to comment twice every 24 hours. I have no idea how slowly or quickly this will go, or how many people will play along with this game. So all I can say is keep an eye out if there is something you really want.

(((And dont forget my Land’s End giveaway!! It concludes on Tuesday!!)))

    Well, I really want to be the 61st comment, but I guess this will have to do for now. 🙂

  3. Hmmm. Well, I can see how this is going to go. Lots of people dropping by to comment, but they think, “I’ll just wait until someone else comments first so I might win”. Well, I’ll just be one of those non-winning commenters, won’t I?

    Thanks for writing,
