My Two for One Giveaway!

If you have been good the last few weeks then you know about my new page I added on here called Temptations. On this page I tried to list sites that follow me that sell pretty things. As you know I love pretty creative pieces. I mean who of us doesn't.

Anyway good or not you can enter this giveaway. In fact you can enter everyday until it ends. Since I use the random generator no big deal right? I mean whats the difference in putting in 20 or 40 numbers. Does that make sense or is it too early in the morning to be talking figures. haha

Speaking of figures I guess you are wondering. Well Mag's what is the giveaway. Okay here it is and hope I can explain without you having to grab one of those dummy books for blogging.

I am all about promoting friends sites that follow me. 
 I don't care if you take up my whole page. If you are a friend and need your site put out there then I am here because of friends. No other reason.  I love reading your sites and laughing with you or in some cases crying.

Now I am getting off the subject of  what is the giveaway. To one person that follows me they will get a thirty dollar gift certificate to spend only at one of my followers which the last time I looked is a more than I would of dreamed of having in ten years on here much less than a year. lol  Also you can spend this with anyone that follows me they do not have to be on my Temptations list because it is not complete.

Reasons for having this giveaway are many. One is because I love you and another is to celebrate reaching the 500 mark on that follower thing. This ole woman can't figure it out but thats what it says 507 so I have to believe it.

I am calling this my two for one Giveaway because there are going to be two winners. One that wins the gift certificate and the other who they pick to buy from.  I was thinking of ending it on my brother Gary's Birthday which is January 27th. So you get busy enter every day if you like but only once a day and it has to be on this post. Not that I don't want you to leave me comments on other post Heavens no that is not what I mean but for the giveaway it only counts on here. Let's say midnight central standard time on the 27th of January. By then Gary should be through with his treatments and resting at home. So we can celebrate.

Right now I can barely reach this keyboard I am so under blankets. hahaha Freaking 23 when I got up this morning and as you know I am the biggest sissy to anything under 60. So I grabbed the ole computer hobbled upstairs and much warmer up here. Praise God for central air and heat. My little friend Gretchen sits over at the little pink house and does not turn her heat on. I begged her to spend the night last night because I hate to think of her just wrapped up in a heating blanket.

I know you gals and guys up North are laughing at me but remember I live way way down south at we don't believe in white stuff covering the ground or water turning into ice unless its in our tea. I told someone this morning this ole place makes me think I have some how landed in the book Little House on the Prairie and all I can hear is the  North wind blowing telling me I had better take cover. And cover I did with every sweet quilt I could find. hahaha

Good luck to all of you. If you have any questions be sure and ask. I am friendly it is Ms Pearl you have to watch out for. She sure is cranky this morning but contained.

Love to all

Hi Dear Maggie!!

Sorry to hear you are freezing in Texas!!

We can't get out for the third day in a row
here in Georgia!! My husband tried this AM to
go to work but when he entered the next county over from ours no one had bothered to send some plows to get rid of the ice on the roads.
So he's back home now working on various IT projects!

Your Giveaway sounds wonderful...I won one of your giveaways several weeks ago so you don't have to enter me this time!!

Warm Hugs sent your way Maggie!!

Love ya,


Tam said...

What a wonderful idea! You are all about friends aren't you. That is why you have over 500 of them.
You know your the reason I have talked myself into doing a blog.
Count me in. Meanwhile I will be trying to figure out where I spend my winnings if I am the lucky winner..

stefanie said...

fun!!!! I will have to do that...I have been soooooo lazy!!!! hahaha, need to get in gear and start working more on my shop!

Sharon said...

Please count me in also.
If you are freezing at 23 then you need to come here where it is -19 and that is no wind chill.
My car did not want to start this morning, It did not start at all yesterday.
Please stay warm and snuggle in that warm quilt.
Have a great day.

Kim said...

I love how you keep having great giveaways because eventually the odds will pick my number!
Sorry you are cold. Good thing you are not in chilly Nova Scotia. We are a couple of hours away from the start of a blizzard. Expecting at least a foot of snow Maggie! I will have to dig out Millie's winter coat! lol
Hugs to you, Tinkerbell and Gary

janet said...

Hey Girl!

A Tale of Two Cities said...

I'm not surprised in the least that you have over 500 followers! Your good humor, candid writing, and easy friendliness are contagious and we all want to follow along your "happy path."


HOOTIN' ANNI said...

I know, I know....I know just what you mean about those of us living in the "Southern" U S A. We are wusses. To be sure. But they all don't realize that when it's cold here, it's downright bone chilling!!! The humidity you have to factor in, and also the wind our 60 degrees, tho cool and comfortable, feels like a 40 degree reading in the drier areas.

So, stay under those blankies and curl up and let the body heat warm your innards!!!

And think SPRING!!! While all those up north are still having winter, we'll be basking in Spring like weather in no time.

Rebecca said...

I'm a follower! I'm a follower! :) :) And I'm happy to be one that is NOW back amongst the living, too! At least I THINK I am! I don't EVAH WANNA BE SICKO AGAIN! Bah!

Ok bless us all.

Love to you~


sissie said...

Hello Maggie,
Oh boy, this is wonderful, you are just too sweet and generous.
I always feel so much happier after visiting you, as Rebecca said, "you bless us all!"

Big hugs

Marydon said...

I may be your follower, but I am truly blessed to say you are my friend, which is far more important. Love you, sweetie.

Doing much better, just ache & unbruising ... then I'll be fine ... we just don't BEND well when we get ummmmmmmmmm, younger?

In a heat wave here, a spanky warm 27 with high winds & 3" of that beautiful white stuff.

How is Gary doing? Give him a big hug for us.
Have a snuggly warm eve, all our love,
Me & He

Debby said...

Hello friend. So nice of you to have such a thoughtful giveaway. Congratulations on so many followers. You see, you are well loved.
When you aren't used to the cold it is hard. I hate it when our power goes off. We are in the 20s right now. So far it has been a cold winter. Lots of snow as well. You stay warm. (((((HUGS)))))

Delena said...

Yuma may be a bit windy and a little cooler than usual but nothing compared to the rest of the world.Flooding in Australia, winter storms back home. We are so blessed to be in this little corner of the earth where it is mostly sunny. I would love to enter your giveaway.

Nancy's Notes said...

Oh Maggie, you sweet Texas gal, you are such a doll to have a giveaway! Congratulations on all of your followers, that is really awesome!~

Stay warm and toasty!


Shirley said...

Hi Maggie, I will trade you temperature right now. I know that others are colder then we are, but it makes me hurt. Congratulations on your 507 followers. Everybody loves reading your blog. It is so much fun and you can really have a good chuckle at times. I am keeping you all in my prayers, Count me in on your drawing. Have a great day. Your Missouri Friend.

From Beyond My Kitchen Window said...

I know you are chilly but we just two feet of snow and now its starting to freeze.Brrr! Congrats on all your followers. You have fun posts and your kindness shines through.

Julia said...

Maggie, I sure hope that you have warmed up by now. I'm sorry that it's cold in Texas. I don't like the cold either and I dress up in layers. I now wear long johns to keep my legs and butts warm. Then I peel down because I get too hot. There is never a happy medium with me. My body thermostat is broken I think. As soon as the sun goes down I turn into an icicle. Maybe a little bottle of Brandy would help.

Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog and inviting me to your giveaway. Count me in. Congratulation on having so many followers. So you think that I have a Ms Pearl in me too, heh. Maybe I should let her out more often to see what she can come up with. lol...

Just so you know Maggie, you and Gary are still in my prayers. JB

NitWit1 said...

Win or not, I truly hope your brother is home and headed toward tip-top health. That would be the best gift of all.

It is 10 degrees here in the North Central Ozarks at 8:40 a.m. so hope you 20s feels a tad warmer. There 2" snow on ground for two days, but hopefulling will melt today. The roads are mainly clear. @' IS NOT A HUGE snowstorm for around here.

But the 1000 Year ice storm two winters ago was something the oldtimers are still talking about. We lost every tree in our yard. One fell one the roof, fence was damaged, all manner of damage. Fortunately we had very good insurance. Of course premium went up after huge payment, but what can you say?

Julia said...

Hi Maggie, I wrote a comment and I lost it., so here I go again.

Sorry that you are cold in Texas. It's cold here too and I have to dress in layers and then I get a hot flash and off it comes again. As soon as the sun goes down I turn into an icicle. Maybe I need a bottle of brandy to keep me warm.

Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. I always enjoy your visit.

Thanks for the invitation to your give away. You can count me in. Congratulations on having 507 followers. That is awesome.

Maggie, just so you know, I still have you and Gary in my prayers.
Take care and keep safe and warm. Hugs, Julia

Whimsey Creations said...

You must be awesome to have that many followers - wowser!!! Hope you get warm - here in Gawga it's waaaaaaaaay colder than I like! And that ice on the ground just won't melt - I think I could skate in my front yard LOL Hugs!

T's Daily Treasures said...

I'm with you Maggie, below 60 is way too cold for me. :) I'm just stopping by to see how you are doing and what you are up to. Love the mermaid picture that Kaci made for you. She did a great job. Take care and cover up good. Best wishes, Tammy

Gayle said...

AW - I LOVE the snow - and we're not getting nearly enough of it here in Utah this year - at least not enough to keep me happy! LOL I'd love to win your giveaway!

Domestic Diva said...

Kim said...

Maggie, I am easily confused (maybe my brain froze in all this snow??) but you did say we could enter everyday.....right??
So, here I go again.
Luv ya, Kim

Chrissy said...

Wow what a great accomplishment, 500 followers and here I am just excited to have 20, but I just started a few weeks ago. We need to celebrate every little thing, right?
What a great giveaway and so many places to pick from to spend it.
I love to snuggle up in blankets, but I guess down south that isn't really a thought most of the time.
Stay warm.

SharDon Exclusives said...

Hey, girly girl, how are you???? I have missed my friends and you are at the top of the list. I am soooo bad. Can you believe how time can fly? It was Oct. 18 since I entered anything on my blog...bad girl...bad. I am busy with inventory, beading, living and haven't had a minute until the good Lord sent snow and freezing ice to Georgia. I have not been out of the house since Sat. and still freezing. I have welcomed the time away from work just to be ME. Me misses all my blogging buddies and you can consider yourself missed. Your brother is in my prayers. It is sooo hard to see our loved ones in pain. You are also in my thoughts and prayers with your neck/back. I love you from afar.
Wishing you a blessed 2011, Sharon

Stacy Crawford said...

What a fun contest. Congrats on 508 now followers.

Sares said...

I can believe you have 500 followers! You're such a hoot girl! I think this is such a great idea for a giveaway. You give someone a gift and help support our fellow bloggers with their shops. Stay warm and have a great weekend!

Susan said...

Hi Maggie
I am kind of low. Two weeks before Christmas, my dog, Olaf suddenly got very sick. I got him to the vet and he had cancer.
I had to have him put down. If you've ever had a German Shepherd, you know that they are more than just a dog.
Thanks for caring. That's probably why you have so many followers. That and the fact that you are funnier than a rubber crutch.

Tam said...

Hey Maggie
I am behind entering everyday. lol
Hope your well

Tracy Suzanne said...

Hey Maggie. I just stopped in to visit and see how your brother was doing and lo and behold you're having a giveaway. Wow over 500 followers. That's quite and accomplishment for some (I'm nowhere near there) but I'm not a bit surprised for you because you have such a great blog and even better you're like everyones best friend.

Anyway congratulations! Hope Gary is coming along well and I'm thinking of you. Stay warm and have a fun weekend....Tracy :)

CIELO said...

Good evening Miss Grandma Yellow Hair! (lovely imagery).... came by to say hi.... and oh, just found you're having a wonderful giveaway! How nice!

Be happy!


Tracy said...

Isn't it the truth that reading and visiting the sites of friends is truly amazing? I feel like every time I visit, I devour another chapter in their fun for me and feel bothered that I have missed moments...
and for me, I try to visit as many people as time allows...

LuLu Kellogg said...

I pink puffy heart Ms. Pearl even if she is cranky!!


~ Regan said...

I just found your blog and already feel like I know you. Love your sense of humor! We are cold here in Central Wisconsin, too, with 4 to 5" more snow today--think I'd get used to it but I hate it more every winter! Stay warm, and have added your brother to my prayer list.
