giving back giveaway

magnets

Yesterday's wood, paint and glitter turned into some fun little things! Some Cupcake magnets...

painting2

...and a tiny painting! They haven't been sealed yet, but I'll be working on that.

Now, I promised a giveaway today, and so let's get to it!

In the last month or so, I've been fortunate enough to win several giveaways...a book, a few CDs, even a Diana Mini camera! Winning something fun or special feels wonderful, and I thought that it would be nice to give away a few things myself, so that others have more chances to win. Sound good?

First, I want to mention a giveaway that is happening on Rachell's blog. She's Showing Some Love, and it means that you could win a September sponsorship spot on my blog or someone else's. It's also a nice time to tell people about some blogs that you're loving!

Here on Wild Olive, my Giving Back Giveaway involves choices.

necklace

There are several prizes available!

1. A Felt Yo-Yo Necklace with four colors that you can change out.

2. A set of Painted Cupcake Magnets.

3. A Cupcake Mini Painting.

4. A $10 Wild Olive shop credit. (new items are coming next week!)

5. A Mystery Surprise.


There will be multiple winners, and each winner will get to choose their prize! Really!

To enter, leave a comment with your name, and your 1st and 2nd choices for prizes (just in case I completely run out of your 1st choice). I'd also love you if you leave a way for me to contact you.

Bonus Entry (one per person): Tell about this giveaway on your blog, Facebook, Twitter, etc., and leave a comment telling where you shared.

The giveaway will remain open until Saturday, August 13th at NOON CST. I'll choose and announce winners on Saturday evening.

Good luck!
