Entry Rules

    • You must leave a comment in order to have an entry.


    • You must leave a separate comment for each entry. This is not so I can get lots of comments–it is because it makes it a million times easier to choose a winner. It takes less time, and less time is good. Plus, it makes sure I don’t miss an entry.
    • You don’t have to do all seven entries…for example, if you just want to follow this blog, you can just do entry one.
    • One entry per comment.
    • Up to four entries per person.
    • You must fulfill the rules of each entry for each entry to count. If I see the entry is not valid (did not meet entry requirements), I will disqualify your entry. Trust me, I check.
    • Entries will be accepted until Saturday, May 12 when I choose the winner.
    • The winner will be randomly selected at
    • The winner will be announced Saturday, May 12.
    • If you would like, you can add your email address to your entry. If you are the winner, I will email you to let you know. You do not need to add your email address in order to win. I understand not everyone wants to share their email addresses with the world. I will announce the winner on the blog, so you can check the blog Saturday to find out if you won.
    • Once the winner is announced, you will have one week to contact me or another winner will be chosen. Be sure to check back. The only thing worse than not winning is to win but not realize it in time!
    • Open only to US mailing addresses.
