So, I headed over to Scrapin' Sara's Gifts to contact her to find out if there was some kind of snafu. That's when I saw it, nestles between the thumbnails of her items and her header: All orders come with FREE GOODIES! Wow! Free stuff with every order? I had to try it out, so I ordered another set of holiday cards. Sure enough, that box came and there were TWICE as many cards as I had ordered in there! Not only did I end up with two sets of cards and a pretty ornament, I also ended up with nearly a dozen extra all-occasion and blank cards. (By the way - I hung that ornament in my kitchen window and forgot to pack it up in

And, if you'll remember, in March I participated in the March of Kindness hosted by Code Name: Mama. Participating really got me thinking and I decided to hold a giveaway that had two purposes: I wanted to give my readers a chance to win some great items and I wanted to thank some of the Etsy shops that I had won prizes from by sharing their shops with my readers. I contacted each of the shops and told them that I wanted to run a giveaway of one of their items - and pay for it myself (I had saved up survey payments on my PayPal account for a couple of months to do this.) It worked out wonderfully - every single one of the shops either offered the item for free or added to the giveaway prize offered. Sara not only offered the set of cards I had picked out for free, she also added a second set of cards so there would be two winners! (You can see the post HERE.) Now, how cool is that?!
And Scrapin' Sara's Gifts doesn't just have cards. Oh, no! Sara also makes gift tags, really cool gift tag holders, photo frames, and ornaments! Now, I know that most bloggers don't mention price, but I'm going to - I don't know how she manages to make a dime from her orders because the prices are so low and she's always packing in free stuff! I mean, the card I bought for my brother was just $2, and then she went and sent three more cards to me with it. And, on top of that, she's got a clearance section...
So, when Sara asked me if I'd like to do another giveaway with her, I jumped at the chance. She'd like to offer one of my readers the chance to
WIN a Handmade 6"X6" Winter-Themed Scrapbook!It is all ready for you to add photos of a special wintertime family outing or get-together. The background paper has distressed snowflakes on it and is light enough that you could even write on it.
