Fun Friday... First Giveaway!

As a Fun Friday celebration marking the end of my first week of blogging... I am doing a giveaway!

I thought and thought and thought about what to give away this week (considering my very limited budget and the purpose of my blog)...
First, I thought I could give away a craft (already made)... but that kinda steps all over the purpose of doing the tutorials. My goal is to encourage you to participate in your own crafting... it is so fun and simple!
Then, I thought I could give away a gift card... or something similar that might promote you getting some crafty materials... and then I thought... maybe I would just pick the crafty item myself... because... I am the host... and I get to make that decision! How fun!

So... I decided on this giveaway because it will play a large part in a few of the upcoming tutorials... and I am learning to love it!

Have you met Mod Podge?

We have only recently been introduced... and we are becoming fast friends! Though, I will admit (*I reach over and cover Mod's ears*) that it took me a little bit of time to really get used to Mod. But since I have used Mod for several projects lately... I am really starting to love Mod!

Win a jar of your very own Mod Podge!
I will send the winner 1 jar of Outdoor Mod Podge (because, chances are, you probably don't have Outdoor Mod Podge even if you do have a jar of Mod at your house)... and I will throw in a few sponges too!

So... here is how to enter!
Leave a comment telling me your name/email address and your experience with Mod... even if you have never met!

Want to enter again?
-become a follower (3 entries)...
-already a follower? (then you get those 3 entries too!)


Leave a separate comment for each entry... 4 entries=4 different comments
**So if you get 3 entries for being a follower... just leave 3 separate comments telling me you are a follower.**

The giveaway will run until Midnight, Sunday, January 31. I will do the drawing and announce the winner Monday morning (using random.org).

Hi Michelle - I've got to admit, I've been following Karsie's blog (almost daily since spring time last year) and, from hearing about your new blog there, have been following you here all week! I don't know how you find time to do it, but I like it!! Thanks for the recipe and I look forward to more tutorials (and freebies! I'm so trying the canvas print this weekend!).

As for me and Mod, well, we've never met, but she sounds like a handy gal and I can't wait to see what she's helped you create!!

Take care-God Bless,
Kate
(sorry-not sure how to post my email here....I'm a newbie to commenting!)

Cute new blog, Michelle :)
I have used Mod Podge a lot, but have never used the outdoor stuff. And I have a chest with Maddy's toys outside that I would love to put some cute stuff on!

Michelle, I've never met Mod. I don't even know what she would be used for. But I do like crafts, or I did, before I had my son, now I spend my days chasing him and when he sleeps I sit back and try to catch my breath as I read blogs. I love your new blog. I love your other blog too (I was refered from Family Fish Bowl in almost the very beginning when I too was pregnant.) Also, I agree with Kate's comment above- How do you find the time!?!? Maybe you can post some time saving crafts in the near future. Ha!

I'm putting a comment on here so I don't have to pay for shipping if I win. Just kidding babe, you can disqualify me, but if I win with the random.com thing then I want it published that technically I won.

I've never met Mod. Could she be related to Aline (tacky glue). I was a Craft Queen when my children were younger. Although, I just bought supplies for birthday t-shirts for my baby's 18th birthday.
It was her idea. : ) Love your blogs! I'm a friend of Lori B. and Ginny S. I hope that I beat out Kevin. heeheehee!

I love Mod Podge! It's super handy. But I've only ever used the glossy and matte kinds, so I'd love to try the outdoor kind!

Kevin said...

Kevin said...

Never heard of Mod Podge or used it!

I love to craft and use a decopage glue for some of my crafting, is Mod Podge anything like that?

I made the window cleaner you posted and LOVED it! I've used newspapers for a while now and it gets things so much cleaner than paper towels. Now I have a GREAT cleaner to go with it, thanks!!
