That sure was a fun giveaway and we had 4 close runners. Sorry I haven't been back online to answer your comments ladies but I've been having net problems the past few days. Yesterday it was in and out all day, mostly out, lol! And, since it was such a beautiful day I decided to get moving some things around here. As most know I'm moving my crafting area back to hubby's bldg as I'm more productive out there. He came home early yesterday and helped get my wax etc moved. I had been boxing and cleaning and had an area especially for that ready, so him coming home early was a blessing and just in time. Enough of my rambling and to reply to your comments....
There were 368 marbles in Deb's jar. Lori guessed 340 which brought her the closest and making her the winner. She was within 28 of the actual marbles. Next in line was Jody with her guess of 327, which had her within 41 of the actual amount. And next was CinnamonLaine with her guess of 321, putting her within 47 of the actual amount. And in 4th place was Heather Wise with her guess of 429, making her within 61 of the actual amount. So looking over and thinking about all this, I'm thinking I'll do my next giveaway with a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners? I think that would be just as fun and very interesting, what do you all think?
For this next giveaway I'll do it shortly after I have my crafting area moved and situated. Hopefully that won't be over a couple weeks. As of now I don't have any particular reason or event for the giveaway other than having plain and simple fun with my followers. And instead of doing anything seasonal or holiday specific, I'll be making this one with everyday use goodies. So in the meanwhile I'll be browsing some online shops and on the hunt for some awesome treasures. I would appreciate hearing back from you on the 3 winners and if you like everyday or seasonal giveaways best. I'm looking forward to having more fun soon and hope you are too! Till next time, have fun crafting!
Warm prim hugs to all, Libby
We're happy to announce we have a WINNER to our giveaway! It's been a lot of fun seeing all your posts and guesses! There were several of you that came very close, and no one guessed the exact amount, but the lucky girl to come the closest with her guess is......
Lori - applegrovetreasures!Congratulations Lori! Please send me an e-mail with your mailing address so I can get your goodies shipped out to you!
Ladies I wished you all could have won but don't despair, I have other giveaways planned and will have some tutorials coming soon. I wish to thank all those who entered and look forward to doing this again soon! Till next time, have fun crafting!
Warm prim hugs to all, Libby
Just wanted to remind everyone that tomorrow, Saturday the 9th is the big day and we discover who the giveaway winner will be! Please check back over your comments and make sure you have a "guess how many" for the jar of marbles. Only those that have stated a guess in their comment can be entered in the drawing as that's the only way we have to see who came closest or guessed the actual amount of marbles. So please check and if you haven't entered a guess then do so before 12 pm midnight tonight. Wishing you all the best of luck!
Look what I got in the mail today! Aren't these completely adorable! And....these are the last items in my giveaway. This is a beautiful black and mustard "Lover's Knot Coverlet Towel." It measures a whopping 19" by 29" and could easily be used for a table square. Then next is the "Hog Scrapper Candlestick." It's just over 7" tall and 4-3/4" at base. It has a working push-up lever on the side. (Saltbox house not included.)
So all together, included in my giveaway are:
Prim candle paddle measures 11" long. 5 turquoise 3" nubbies. Wooden bowl with grass and 3 wooden eggs. Set of 4 adorable crow with star felt coasters. 6 vintage wooden spools measures 3" by 4" tall. Colonial tapers and nubbies in turquoise color. The tapers measure around 6" long and the nubbies are about 3" long. Lover's Knot Coverlet Towel measures 19" by 29". Hog Scrapper Candlestick measures 7" by 4-3/4".
Some are having problems leaving a comment on my blog. IF this happens to you then please let me a comment on Deb's blog (make sure you state it's for Libby). And don't forget to "guess how many" marbles are in the jar! (Hint: jar is 5" tall by 4" square.)
Good luck to you all and hope you enjoy this fun giveaway!
Warm prim hugs to all, Libby
It has been brought to my attention again that some can not leave a comment on my blog. This is an issue from blogger and beyond my control. IF you are one that can not comment here, please kindly leave a comment on Deb's blog for ME. You should have two comments on Deb's blog, one for her and one for me. I do apologize for this but it's beyond my control. Thank you so kindly.
First, I (and blogger), were having problems with people trying to leave comments on my blog. Some left comments on Deb's blog but couldn't on mine. That should all be fixed now but if for some reason you still can not leave a comment please contact me and I'll do it for you manually.
I also would like to clarify that this is a joint giveaway, what I called a double whammy. This means with Deb and I, in joint efforts to host this giveaway, there will be one lucky person to win both Deb's goodies and mine. And this actually gives you two chances to win the goodies as the rules are you have to leave a comment on both blogs. So that's like a double entry.
Also, Dolly and Toni made a "guess how many" guess on my blog before I had the jar on my blog. You two ladies will need to re-enter your guess as I didn't have my blog set up for that yet. And, we don't want to leave anyone out of this giveaway. If you see an item that is in mine or Deb's goodies that have been purchased from you, and if you win the giveaway, we will replace that item with a surprise item of equal value. So please don't feel you can't enter the giveaway just because there's something from your store or an item that you sell in our giveaway goodies.
Now as for the original giveaway post (which you can see in previous post), here are the original same rules with clarified revisions. When commenting for the giveaway please leave your comments in the original post below and not here.
For starters, let's go over what needs to be done to enter the giveaway.... 1- You must be a follower. 2- You must leave a comment on the original giveaway post. 3- You must share it in your sidebar (IF you have a blog) with links to both blogs. My link: http://rustyshedprims.blogspot.com/ Deb's link: http://vintagecountryfarmhous.blogspot.com/ 4- Post it to your FB page (IF you have one). 5- Sorry, but US Resident entries only. 6- Make a "guess how many" marbles are in the jar pictured below. (Hint: The jar is 5" high by 4" square.)
7- Good luck to you all!
So the first person to guess the correct number, or by Saturday the 9th, if no one has guessed correctly, we will find the person who came the closest and announce the winner Saturday. (Dolly & Toni please re-enter your guess now that I have the jar shown on my blog.)
As for my other goodies I will be posting another pic today. I have more goodies that are due to arrive in the mail today and IF hubby can pick those up for me then I'll post pics of them later this evening. He's not for sure if he can make it to the PO today after work in time to get them. So if I don't have them posted later this evening then I'll get that done tomorrow. IF you have any questions or having problems commenting, please contact me. We wish for everyone to be able to enter.
Please Note: It has been brought to my attention that some could not leave a comment on my blog. Please try now and if you still can't, e-mail me your comment and I'll post it for you.
Sorry I'm so late getting this posted, burning the midnight oil, lol. It's been a very long, busy, & crazy day. As said in previous post, Debs and I decided to have a double whammy giveaway. She already has hers posted so you really want to go see all the wonderful goodies she has! (Wished I could enter her's myself, lol!) I'm still waiting the arrival of 2 more goodies so can't post pics of them yet, plus I have another something in the making and will post pic as soon as it's finished. And nope, not gonna say what these other goodies are, I'm keeping you in suspense, but let's just say I'm saving the best for last, giggles!
Now if you'll look to the top right side of my blog here you'll see a button of the "Crafty Prim Sista's Giveaway." Clicking this button will take you to Deb's blog so you can enter for her giveaway too! We have a few simple rules for entry in the giveaway and instead of having a random number generator or drawing out of the hat, we've decided to hold the drawing with an old fashion "Guess How Many." We will fill a jar with something then have you "guess how many" items are in the jar. The one that's closest to the correct number wins the giveaway. Sound like fun? I sure hope so and hope you'll enjoy my goodies up for offer as well.
For starters, let's go over what needs to be done to enter the giveaway....
1- You must be a follower.
2- You must leave a comment on this giveaway post.
3- You must share it in your sidebar (IF you have a blog) with links to both blogs.
My link: http://rustyshedprims.blogspot.com/
Deb's link: http://vintagecountryfarmhous.blogspot.com/
4- Post it to your FB page (IF you have one).
5- Sorry, but US Resident entries only.
My first pic of goodies you will receive consist of:
Prim candle paddle and 5 turquoise 3" nubbies, wooden bowl with grass and 3 wooden eggs, and a set of 4 adorable crow with star felt coasters.
Next is a lot of 6 vintage wooden spools. These measure 3" diameter by 4" tall, have different color ends and a wonderful wood patina. These can be used to display with your other spools, used in crafts, or sell them if you like...your choice if you win them.
Here are some Colonial tapers and nubbies in turquoise color. The tapers measure around 6" long and the nubbies are about 3" long. They will be tied with homespun and bagged. (Other items not included with tapers.) Hope you like them. And hubby didn't get to pick up the box today so I'll post pics of those goodies tomorrow.
This is all the pics for now but remember I will be posting pics of more goodies as I receive them. You're gonna love what's still to come so keep watch and get entered in both giveaways! Till next time, have fun crafting!
Good afternoon everyone, hope you're enjoying a wonderful 1st day of March! Isn't it so exciting to know that SPRING will soon be here! I wanted to share with you about my upcoming Giveaway. And not only myself, but a friend is having one also! We've decided to have a "double whammy," and call it the "Crafty Prim Sista's Giveaway." We will have a blog button exchange so all you'll need to do is click on the button to visit the other blog and sign up for that giveaway too! I'll be listing more information on all this tomorrow so be sure to keep watch and get in on both giveaways! I will tell you that both giveaways will consist of various items, including some crafting supplies. There will be awesome gifts to win so you won't want to miss this. Now that I've told you about this I'm off to start getting some pics for tomorrow's posting. I hope you're as excited as I am and wishing you all the best of luck in the giveaways!
Till next time, have fun crafting!
Prim hugs to all, Libby
Hello, and thanks for stopping by my blog. A lil' about me? Well I love crafting and sharing my creations, and have been doing so for many years. I've dabbled in all kinds of crafting mediums and I love to research and experiment. My favorites are primitive & colonial crafts, but I also like other styles. I try to "giggle" at least once everyday as we have enough sadness in our lives. I love my family & friends and look forward to meeting new ones. Feel free to contact me as I'd love to hear from you.
Big prim hugs to all, Libby
