Veggies…Summer Fun Giveaway! :-)

veggies summer fun giveaway

Well, summer is almost here. and I realized the other day, I haven’t had a giveaway/contest at any of my blogs for a quite a while.

For any of my regular readers who also stop by at my review blog: My Real Life Reviews  you’ll probably remember that I was hosting contests there in particular and on a fairly regular basis, in the past couple of years.

So, I’ve decided to do something about this lack of free goodies, 😉 (I love contests too!!!) so here are the details of:

Veggies…Summer Fun Giveaway!

First of all, the prizes:

lucky penny pouches

Your choice of 2 of the Lucky Penny Pouches shown here.

You can read more about these fun little amulet pouches/charms here.

I make these for orders and gifts too.

Great for bringing more good karma, luck and mojo your way😉

cropped gold shawl

A sunshine-yellow cotton crochet shawl

(yes, I made it myself) 😉

This is much prettier than the photo btw!!!

It’s actually a warm, golden-yellow color.

Perfect to wear with sundresses on summer evenings! 🙂

And just in time for summer reading (and cooking)- Kindle copies of  these three books.

And in case you didn’t think summer was a great time for using a slow cooker, think again! 😉

Set and forget it and get out to enjoy the sunshine. No heating up the kitchen either.

You can read more about these Ebooks at:

My Amazon Author’s page.

There will be 3 lucky winners that will be posted here during the day on:  Sunday, June 15th.

Easy peasy to enter too. No FB or Twitter, etc…to visit, like etc.

All that’s required is to leave a comment below answering this question:

What is one of your all-time favorite “summer” books and give a brief description why it is.

***

Oh and just a few minor details:

-Contest closes at 12:01 (midnight, Pacific time) on June 15th

-Be sure to include a contact email address, if your blog profile/comment isn’t linked to one that I can use to contact you, if you win.

-Winners will have 2 weeks to claim their prizes. 

If not claimed in the two weeks after they are contacted, I will post a replacement winner(s). 

-One entry per person please and NO anonymous comments.

-Open to residents of Canada (except the province of Quebec) and the US. 

If you are a follower here at Veggies… do mention in your comment, you’ll get a bonus entry.

I’m always on the look-out for new books to read (aren’t you?) so I thought this was a great idea for a contest. And this time of year, I especially love those that have a summery theme. 😉

***

In the meantime, I’m going to be taking a  short blog break.

The to-do pile here is once again out of control, for online and offline projects. Can you relate?

So I’m going to try to make a serious ‘dent’ in all that and also get out more to enjoy the sunny days we are having right now, here in BC. And before it gets TOO hot to actually enjoy being outside. 

Good luck with the contest and enjoy the sunshine, wherever you are too.

I’ll see ya soon! 🙂

For One Day Only…

This Sat. May 3rd, my two newest Kindle books will both be available as free downloads, at Amazon.

Looking For Something To Read This Weekend?

If you are, you might want to check out these recent reviews, over at:

 My Real Life Reviews (click to read all the reviews). 

Four of them are good, one is a stinker! Can you guess which one? 😉

With gardening season just around the corner, Modern Rustic is one that’s definitely worth a look, great book.

Ok, so that’s not the stinker!!!

Happy Weekend and Reading! 🙂

Some (free) Groovy Glove Patterns and a Tutorial!

free-gloves-fingerless-gloves

Have you ever knit a pair of gloves?

I just started knitting gloves in the past couple of years.

I’m only on my second pair right now but they are a fun knitting challenge. 😉 Some new techniques to learn too.

I’m making the Unisex Gloves from the One Skein Book by Leigh Radford (click to read my review) in a forest green yarn. I’ll share a photo when they are complete. I’m kind of slow when it comes to glove knitting but I’ll get there. 😉

The beautiful gloves shown above are all part of a new free ebook from Interweave.

You can download your free copy here.

Looks like a great collection! I’d like to make those purple ones in the bottom row. 

I also use this glove tutorial at Very Pink. The step by step instructions in the video that you can start and stop as you knit along with Stacy, is SO helpful.

Some other great knitting tutorials and resources over at Very Pink too.  

Happy Knitting! 🙂

Calling all Critter-Lover Knitters! ;<)

Looking for a Weekend Book to Enjoy? :<)

I just posted a review for: Falling Star by Diana Dempsey, over at My Real Life Reviews.

This story is a real page-turner, or “page-tapper” 😉 if you’re reading via an ereader like I am, more and more these days.

I also just noted that this ebook is FREE today over at Amazon, so a great time to get a copy. I don’t know how long that offer will last.

Happy Weekend and Happy Reading! 🙂
