My first ever giveaway!

I've always wanted to do it... have a giveaway.  But I am not crafty.  I don't paint or draw.  And unless you want a photo of my kids or something related to hockey... well you see where I struggle with an idea of what to do.  Plus, what I love about my readers?  Well, they're readers.  I  love words and stories, and I love that people invest their time to read my words and stories.

BUT...  I received an opportunity for something that truly fits the idea of something for ME to giveaway.  This giveaway is generously being sponsored by CSN Stores.  CSN Stores is an online mall, with more than 200 stores.  CSN Stores have a diverse offering of items from bar furniture, to cookware, from toys and games, to home decor.

For instance, this caught my eye.  Thanks in part to the Rachel Ray cookbook my son checked out for me at library, (hint, hint, mom) ... check out these Rachel Ray All Cookware sets.  Look at all the colors they come in and note that they are currently on sale!








































Or maybe you are in need of a new bedroom comforter set.  Something like this Croscill Hibiscus Comforter Set may be on your wish list.






With over 200 online stores to shop from, is it any wonder I am excited to think there is something for everyone? CSN Stores is offering a 50 dollar gift certificate to one of my lucky readers! There are 3 ways to enter! So heres what you do:



1- Go to one of CSN's 200 stores and come back and comment about your favorite item. Be prepared to get sucked into the huge variety of items they have and walking away wanting more than just one thing!

2- A blog doesn't exist without its true-blue followers. If you are already a follower ... just leave me a comment if you want in... thats it. Or become a new follower of this blog if you aren't already and come back and leave a comment telling me you are now a follower.

3- If you have a blog, post about the giveaway with a link back to this blog and come back leaving me a link to you in a separate comment.

Thats right... either choose one of the three ways for a single chance to win, or increase your odds by entering all three ways!

One winner will be chosen at random using a random number generator.

You have until noon CST, Sunday, May 9th, 2010. Winner to be announced in the following days.

Good luck everyone!  Happy shopping!
