Birthday-Blog-Bag Give-A-Way

Monday, March 10th, is my 48th birthday!  To celebrate it with my current and future blog sisters/friends/buddies/pals I am having a bag give-a-way. To see some of the bags I have made click here.

To have a chance at winning one of my bags leave a comment to this post FIRST. I will need to be able to contact the winner via email, so please be sure to leave an email addy in your comment if you do not have a blogger account. Then to increase your entries, (and chances of winning) you can do either or both of the following:

2. Put the following CODE in a post telling your readers about the Give-A-Way.  Come back here and leave the perma-link to your post.  This is worth 5(five) additional chances:).

3.  Put the CODE or information in an email and send it to your friends.  In the subject line, please put: Birthday-Blog-Bag Give-A-Way. Also send the e-mail to me by putting my addy in the CC or BBC field of the email.  Each person you send it to gets you 1(one)additional chance at winning. My addy: scrappynhappyATgmailDOTcom .

This Give-A-Way ends at 9:00 a.m. EST on Tuesday, March 11, 2008. All entries...comments and emails... will be numbered in the order recieved and then I will use a Random Number Generator to pick the winner. Winner will be posted on this blog and notified by email sometime Tuesday. At that point the winner and I will discuss pattern and fabric choices. I will ship the bag as soon as it is finished.

Here is the CODE:

Betty said...

I'm in. I would love to win one of your beautiful handbags. Boy, would I have something to brag about, lol.

I'm showing my ignorance here, but I don't know how to leave a perma link on your blog. Can you help me, please? Thank you, sweet Phyllis.

Little Piddles said...

Thanks for stopping by my party:) I saw the word handbags and ran right! Please enter me for one of your beautiful handbags:)

Phyl said...

Betty if you were any sweeter I would have to call you, Sugar!

When you post the title of the post is a link. Click on it. The perma link is what shows up in the address at the top in your internet address bar.

Like blog addy is
The perma link for my Bday Post is:

To test this go to the first link and click on the title of my Bday Post. The page will open up where the only post on it is the Bday one. The web address for that page is the perma link.

Hope this helps:).
