The Inaugeral Giveaway Post

25 Sep

‘ello all!  I have been meaning to write this post for five days now so I apologize profusely for my tardiness. I taunted you with a Giveaway Post and then took forever to write it. I’m a failure. So sorry.

On the upside…the time is now, the time is here – THIS is the Giveaway Post! YOU could win!

Here are the glorious details:

What: A fun-filled package could arrive on your doorstep, in your mailroom, to a P.O. Box near you. It will be filled with theeeeese items:

  • A cookie of your choice, whether from this blog or not. The winner can pick the type of cookie (this means “peanut butter” not “big”, just for those of you funny people out there).
  • A snack of your choice, from these two options: Granola or Chipotle & Rosemary Nuts
  • All the ingredients (other than butter – that’s yours to purchase) for Knock You Naked Brownies because that’s the REAL point of this blog – trying to bring tasty recipes into your home for YOU to make and enjoy! I’ll provide just about all the ingredients and then you can roll up your sleeves and give it a go. Humor me, ok? I think you’ll surprise yourself. And they are TASTY, I promise!
  • A spatula to add to your kitchen. I solemnly swear I’ll pick out a really great one. But what it looks like will be a surprise, I hope that’s alright.
  • You never know what other surprises I’ll throw in. Just because surprises are fun. I love surprises. And if you don’t, too bad. There will be some in the package. Handle it.

Why: Because everyone needs a fun package in the mail sometimes! I wish I could send you all a fun package but then I’d be broke and it just wouldn’t be as special. But don’t you worry, there will be more Giveaways. Why? Please read this section again.

When: The Giveaway entry period will end Friday, September 28 at 11:59 PM. I’ll announce the winner in a post on Saturday morning sometime between 9:08 AM and 11:43 AM. Just for a little added anticipation.

How: As stated in my previous post, you must be a Follower on the blog to be entered. You must click the button in the upper right corner of the blog, follow the prompts and become an official Follower to be entered (becoming a Follower means that you’ll get an email each time I post in the future, which is on average about 4-7 times a month I’d say). This is also how I’ll clarify the details of the package and the mailing address with the winner as I get to see a list of all the lovely email addresses of the blog followers. The winner will be selected through use of a random number generator where each follower will be assigned a number and the RNG will do the rest. Equal chance for all!

So if you’re not yet a Follower, please be one! Then you’ll not only have the opportunity to win but you’ll be updated each time I have a new recipe or craft to share. C’mon, it’s a win-win.

If you already are a Follower, congratulations – you’ve entered the Giveaway and have nothing else to do except wait for Saturday’s announcement! You’re so on top of things.

If you just read this blog in passing, well, I’m so glad you stopped by. Please continue to do so. But unfortunately I don’t know who you are so can’t enter you into the Giveaway. Sorry about that.

Those are all the details. That’s it. Simple and super fun – I can’t wait to put this package together for the lucky winner!

Best wishes to all who enter and may the odds be ever in your favor…(ha, couldn’t help it)…
