We Have A Winner.... and a new giveaway!

Meant to post this sooner but my internet was down for some reason...grrr....talk about bad timing!

By the time the world came back online (just in time to stop my withdrawal symptoms), my faithful assistant was at his play date. So I popped over to Random.org. Thanks to Lisa Falzon for pointing this site out in on her latest giveaway post, by the way.

A hearty congrats to random pick # 23 - Rukshana Hooda ! !
I'll be contacted you today, Rushana for your mailing info.

I'm digging this Thursday Giveaway thing!
By the great response,I think you are too. So let's do it again!

I've decided to try & make Thursday Giveaways a weekly feature. While I'll be contributing prizes, I'm also looking for others who'd like to donate. I'd like to stick with either items you've made or supplies for creating anything.

What is in it for you besides that warm & fuzzy feeling that you've made some one's day? Well, my last 2 random giveaways had almost 100 entries each. I'm guessing that will continue to increase once Thursday Giveaway goes weekly. Thursday's Feature will be all about you as well as your generous prize. With links to your shops, blogs, websites & what have you. I will also be promoting your prize (plus your talented & generous nature, of course) through a variety of online venues.

The 2 jewelry designers who donated prizes earlier this year WillsOakStudio & CelticKnot saw an increase in traffic in their shops & blogs during the contests.

So, what do you think? If you are interested in participating just contact me (my email's on my profile or just leave a comment) and we'll set something up. Till then, here is the next prize:

The Scented House by Penny Black.

Recipes & techniques for "Creating beautiful & naturally fragrant accessories for every room in the house".

182 pages of how to make colognes,potpourri, floral waters, candles, pomanders, sachets, pressed flowers, garlands, stationary & soap

I bought this hardcover book a few years ago with heavenly scented intentions. But it is destash time! Was all set to list in my Etsy supplies shop.... but I do love making someones day so here we go: Just leave a comment on this blog sometime before noon (EST) next Thursday May 21. I'll post the random winner that afternoon. Give it a go, it could be you!

If you have any opinions or interest in the weekly contest idea,please leave those comments too!
As Always Thanks For Playing!
