Free is Fun: An Uncommon Giveaway for Baby, Mom, Dad, & Home!

An Uncommonly Awesome Giveaway -

Confession:  I haven’t bribed my wonderful readers in months. *tear*

In deathly fear of the Blogging Nazi, who decrees ALL blogs must have giveaways (No readers for you!), I humbly submit this post.

*insert halo over head*

Rocky over at Uncommon Goods….(sidenote: I’m so glad his name is Rocky.  It would be bad advertising, I think, to work at Uncommon Goods and have a name like Bob)…emailed me to suggest that we partner up and offer a $65 splurging gift certificate to one of my readers.

I have two criteria when it comes to partnering with companies on my website.

  1. The prize has to be valuable.  $10 isn’t even worth a yawn.
  2. The prize has to be unique.  (I’m easily bored, and it’s work to put these things together.)

Rocky delivered on both ends.  $65 is a pretty happy hunk of change, and there’s not a single boring piece of merchandise in the entire store.  (Case in point: even the pizza cutters are entertaining.

All you have to do to win is browse through their store of awesomeness and share the item that you that really just blew you away.

Always your servant, I’ve created a few graphics to introduce you to just a handful of the unique things you can win!
