October = Month of Giveaways

I love October. It just so happens to be my favorite month, which may or may not have anything to do with it being my birthday month. I love the fall leaves, the crisp air, the slowing down of the crazy pace of August and September. I start getting all crafty for the upcoming holidays. It may also be a coincidence that October is "In Love with the Little Things" blogiversary. That means I have been posting here regularly for THREE YEARS! Now that's a serious commitment.

To commemorate October, and my upcoming birthday, and my blogiversary, and autumn in general, I think some giveaways are in order.

I think I shall have a giveaway every Friday in October plus an extra giveaway on my birthday. Five in all! I'm having an ongoing entry pool. So you can enter as many times as you like, up to once a day for every day in October. Every Thursday I will count up all the comments and pick a winner using a random number generator. Got it?

What is being given away?

Week one (October 8th):

a scrapbook paper banner like this one hanging in my kitchen. Custom made to the colors of your choice. Perfect for a bedroom, a craft area, or if you are a bit untraditional like me, a kitchen.

Week two (October 15th):

Three bars of handmade soap. Fragrance of your choice. If you want a particular fragrance, I might even make a batch to suit.

My Birthday (October 17th): This stationary box full of handmade cards and tags. Two colors to choose from.

Week Three (October 22nd):

This little landscape painting: An 8 by 10 pastel painting of a little lily pond.  It's already framed too.

Week four (October 29th):  A custom pastel painting of your choice, 8" by 10" in size. Anything. Well, almost anything.

So... how do you enter?

Make a comment! Here or on any post, past or present. I'll keep track. You get one entry for each comment, but only one entry per day. If you comment every day in October, you will have 30 entries by the last giveaway! And here is the kicker, you can comment on ANY of my posts on ANY of my blogs...





(Though the one entry per day rule still applies.)

Now, just for fun, I'm going to give a one time extra-credit entry for each of the following:

- If you have NEVER made a comment on one of my blogs before (let me know in your comment.) One entry per blog.

- If you click FOLLOW ME on any of the blogs. One entry per blog follow. This includes my current followers.

- Make a facebook comment, a "tweet", or a blog post about my art blog.
(Not this blog, the art blog.) Address is www.brittanylaneartwork.blogspot.com
One entry per social network. Let me know in the comments.

Good Luck!

(And get commenting! Don't hold back. The first winner will be chosen FRIDAY OCTOBER 8th at 9:00 pm. Ready, Set, GO!)
