*A Giveaway to Celebrate*

I am having a giveaway to celebrate two things..

The first is my 200th post! and I want to thank all of you for reading what I get up to and keeping me going, as without you all, I wouldn’t have the desire to tell you things and show you things.

The second reason is the launch of the Among the Gum Trees blog. That was so exciting yesterday wasn’t it? Lots of good things coming your way.

~~~~

004

So for my giveaway I would like to give one lucky winner this bundle of goodies. There are 5 FQ’s in different prints and a little pin cushion I made, a Christmas table mat with cinnamon inside so that when a warm casserole is put on it, it lets off a lovely aroma (I made this also). Also two Australian magazines and if I find some other things to add to it then I will put them in the bundle.

~~~~

Ok….Now what I would like for you to do to enter in my giveaway.

One Entry - put the Among the Gum Trees button (& link it to the Among the Gum Trees blog) on your blog’s sidebar. The button is at the top of my blog.

One more Entry -  become a follower of Among the Gum Trees blog.

and another Entry - become a follower of my blog.

Please leave comments for all of these so I don't have a hard time to count them up.

For those who don't have a blog please leave me an email address so I can get in contact with you if you are the winner. If I don’t hear back from you in a week of the draw then I will draw another one.

~~~~~~~~

Also as you would have read yesterday on the Among the Gum Trees blog that the other 8 girls are having a giveaway to celebrate the launching of the blog so pop on over to their blogs too and enter their giveaways. Oh what fun!!!

With 9 of us all having giveaways we will all be having a look at who has put the Among the Gum Trees button onto your blog, so if you have already put it on please say so in your comments to get your entry.

So spread the word and tell everyone you can and on the 30th of September 09 I will draw a winner.

Hugs to all…….Vicki
