We have a Winner!

I have to tell you! I'm feeling lucky. I've won two contests in the past three weeks. Now, I know what you're thinking...luck has nothing to do with it. And you know what? You're right. Yes, you heard me, you are right. It wasn't luck but literacy that brought me two wonderful giveaways. I read. I read fabulous blogs by women who are fabulous writers. Some of these women are introducing me to products, websites, and many other wonderful things that I never knew existed before now. And I love it. And here's the thing...I'm sure the companies, artists, webmasters etc are loving it too because it is a great way to market in a very personal way. Plus it reaches an amazing amount of readers.

So I'm sure you are dying to know what I've won. Even if you aren't, I'm going to tell you, so there! I won $25 from the blog, Jolly Mom. She was reviewing Buzzillions,a customer review site that collects reviews from actual product purchasers. I looked over the website, commented on it back at Jolly Mom and was randomly chosen to win the twenty-five bucks! It was that easy.

The other giveaway I won was from the blog, Three Prince Designs. As some of you know, one of my "past-times" is designing and sewing children's clothes. Miss Monkey Mae has to be outfitted beautifully. Having champagne taste and beer money caused me to reacquaint myself with sewing. Thus I follow blogs that focus on sewing and children's clothing design. Three Prince Designs reviewed the site, You Can Make This. This is a fabulous site if you long to sew but are intimidated by patterns. Well, I won a bundle of E-Patterns just for signing up for their news letter and coming back to Three Prince Designs Blog and commenting about it. Something I would have done anyway. Who says reading doesn't pay off?
