Gobs of Green~ AKA My Very First Giveaway!

*********** This giveaway is now closed!**********************
**********Check back Saturday for winner!********************





Welcome to all of you who are dropping by from SITs. Please feel free to check out my blog and tell me what you think! I love your comments, ideas, and suggestions!




I have thoroughly enjoyed participating in giveaways at quite a few blogs. I have even won a few. Today, SITs is having its Spring Fling (click here for details). A lot of the SITstas are having giveaways on their blogs, so I decided to host my first ever giveaway.
When I was trying to come up with something to give away, I kept coming back to the idea of green/St. Patrick's Day. So, here are the goodies you can win.

1. 1 yard of green variegated fabric
2. A green basket
3. 24 inches of green flowered fabric (both fabrics are 45" wide)
4. Green mini-shatterproof ornaments ~ save them until Christmas, or use them now in a vase or a bowl for a beautiful springtime display.
5. Kiss Me, I'm Irish green shamrock plaque ~ hand-painted by me. . . not perfect, but fun
6. 20 green envelopes
7. 1 spool of green ribbon
8. Green Shamrock tote ~ also made by me. . . there is a small pocket inside
9. Hershey's kisses ~ a great big green one, and a bunch of green and silver ones, also

So, what do you have to do to win these goodies? It's easy, really. Each of the following counts as one entry. Make sure you leave a comment for each entry (i.e. I am following you).

~ Comment on this post. . . tell me one thing that you like that is green. *******You must do this to be entered. No other entries will be accepted unless you have done this.*******
~ Follow me . . . if you already do, let me know, that counts too.
~ Follow me on Twitter . . . click the link on the left side of my page. (leave your twitter name in the comment)
~ Become a fan of my blog on Facebook . . . click the button on the left side of my page.
~ Post about this giveaway on your blog, with a link back to my blog . . . please leave a url in your comment so I can check out your awesome blogs.
~ Subscribe to my blog
~ Post my button on your sidebar

Yes, you read it right! There are seven ways to get your hands on all these green goodies.

The winner will be chosen by Random.org on Saturday, March 14th after 12:01 AM. Unfortunately, due to shipping prices, this giveaway is only open to citizens of the contiguous 48 states. Winner will be announced on my blog. Be sure to leave your email or blog address so I can contact you by email/blog if you win.

Happy blogging!
