Super-Duper 30th Birthday Give-a-Way! Hooray!

That's right, folks! I'm turning 30 (not like I've mentioned it all month) this week, and so I've decided to have a give-a-way. But not just any give-a-way --A Super-Duper 30th Birthday Give-a-Way!
(I can feel your excitement now.)
Best part? I have three prizes, which equals three winners!
Best-est part? You have a chance to earn up to three entries!
Best-est-est part? The prizes rocketh. The awesomeness of each is only surpassed by their attractiveness.
Serious.

Here are the prizes (in no particular order of awesomeness):

1. Annette Lyon's brand new novel: Tower of Strength! Annette will send you a signed copy when it is released in March. This prize rocks because Annette is a great author, and I've actually had the opportunity to read Tower of Strength [in fact, look for the blog post on March 4th, where I will have an exclusive interview with Annette and we'll talk about her new book!] --it's a fabulous historical romance, and as you can see from the book cover below, it takes place when the Manti Temple was being built. Hooray for new novels!


2. Jewelry from TaLaisa! The winner of this prize will win a pair of homemade earrings (see the pictures below). This prize rocks because TaLaisa has amazing talent when it comes to making jewelry (I know this because I have a pair of her earrings myself--which I adore--AND she was featured in Bead Trends magazine in January and February). Plus, you get to pick any color you want, either in pearl, crystal, or stone! How cool is that?!


3. A funky giraffe gift set from Sew Sara! Not only is this combo adorable, but Sara has added her own personal touch and style to make it unique. It's a 3-6 month onesie and burpcloth with a funky giraffe applique. The reason this prize rocks is because it is a perfect gift for any baby (boy or girl), and, of course, I will be buying some later (and who doesn't want to be like me?). She has other awesome things in her shop, too --go check it out (please note that she just had a Clearance Sale to make room for all of her new Spring Items--there should be a shop update this week)!


Here are the three ways to enter:
1st --Leave a comment and your name goes in the drawing.
2nd --Tell me which prize you would prefer to win (even if you can't decide and you say "all three!" it will totally count), and your name goes in the drawing twice.
3rd --Blog about the Super-Duper 30th Birthday Give-a-way, let me know you did, and your name goes in the drawing three times!

Disclaimer: Even though you will have three chances to win, you can only win one prize. Sorry! I'm trying to spread the happiness as much as possible. But! If you leave me your preference, and I draw your name, I will do my best to honor those preferences. Cool?
More Disclaimer: Because of cost, we can only send prizes to people within the United States and Canada (I can't refuse the Canadians. They are my family!).

The Give-a-Way will remain open until Wednesday, February 25th at midnight (MST). I'll draw the names on my birthday (which is Thursday, Feb. 26th! Whoo-hoo!) and announce them sometime that afternoon.

So, get to it!

P.S. One last thought: I want to thank Annette, TaLaisa, and Sara for providing these awesome prizes! They are amazingly talented women and I feel so lucky to know them --you all need to go check out their websites and see more of their fabulous talent -- I promise you won't be disappointed!

I am the first to comment on your blog...that NEVER happens :) I think I should win a prize just for that!

I want the book first and then the giraffe set. If someone wants the book more than me (when I win...cause I WILL win) then i really want the giraffe set.

And - I have blogged the give-away :) so that equals 3 entries and an extra one for being the first to comment...right?? RIGHT :) ha ha!

Christy said...

Oh yes - and HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY of course :)

Annette Lyon said...

Happiest of birthdays!!!

I'm hoping to win the jewelry. Because I'll have enough copies of my book :D and I don't have a baby around anymore.

Thanks for the plug and linky love!

Cardalls said...

I want to win---pick me pick me!

I want all three!

And I will post later and link to your blog.

Julie P said...

To have to pick 1? The jewelry!! I've already read Annette's new book (aren't we spoiled?) and Ainsley is growing!! No more 3-6 month clothes here! I really hope I win. Might make me feel better about not joining the big Vegas par-tay.

Count me in and I would like either the novel or the baby set... Happy Birthday Cheryl...
I will definitely post about it.

flip flop mama said...

Oh pick me, pick me!

I think I would go for the jewelry or the baby clothes.

Happy Birthday!!

How fun! I'd love the book or the earrings. I don't have any more need for onesies (knock on wood and any other wood-like surface), although, it is adorable.

If I don't win, maybe you can arrange for a signed copy of Annette's book for me to buy? ;)

Yay for Cheryl's bday!

flip flop mama said...

Oh and I totally blogged about this :)

Clint, Rachel, and Hailee said...

Mother of the Wild Boys said...

Ok, I want the book first..

Angela Fehr said...

Me = bookaholic so definitely #1! And I'm hosting a birthday giveaway too - this week is my birthday as well!

Amanda D said...

I need to get in on this "I've all ready read Annette's new book" business. How do I get some of that action?

How fun of you to do a giveaway in honor of your birthday. I really want the book, but honestly, I'll take any of them!

Julie said...

Happy Birthday, My Love!!!

Fantastic prizes, by the way. Good job!

I have no preference, as I love all three prizes.

Heather said...

Yeah... happy birthday. I love the giveaway idea for your birthday. With a little one on the way this July I'd like #3 if I won. That onsie is just adorable!

Thanks!

becca said...

Happy Birthday and sign me up for the onesie cause we're hoping for one the end of the year to fill it. 30 is great. Rach and I celebrated in Jan and it was the best birthday I've had in years. Congrats!

Jessica :) said...

So fun! I heard of your giveaway from Rachel, Clint and Hailee. The giveaways look awesome! What a way to celebrate a birthday! *I hope you have a great one, btw!* Oh, I'm having a hard time just saying one of them because they all look so much fun. And, I've included info and a link on my blog about your giveaway. So generous!

Alison Wonderland said...

Hey, I like free stuff. I especially like free books. And if I win then you could just come on up here and deliver it to me instead of mailing it. So that wold totally be worth it right?

and I LOVE your blog...and I LOVE winning stuff!

Cathleen said...

Hi! You don't know me, but I am a friend of Jessica Harwood. I saw your give away on her blog. I think the baby outfit is adorable! Probably because I just had my first child, a baby girl of my own 3 weeks ago today! So I would prefer that gift if I am eligable and chosen! Thanks!

Sara said...

i blogged about it, too :)

Tammy said...

Happy 30th birthday!!! You are going to love the 30's...I know I do and I am jsut a few short years from the 40's.

Susan said...

Happy Birthday....30 is a nice age, better than 29! Easier to remember your age, anyway. Good luck getting older :) If I had to pick, I'd like the book or the jewelry.

Michelle said...

Happy Birthday sis, definitely sign me up for the Jewelry...And, don't I get a free third entry for being your sister?

Amber said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Yep, I'm yelling, cause you're far away in ____. :)
Book or Earings, then baby stuff. They are all AWESOME give aways. Such nice friends you have. Hope your day is a good one. I admire your proactive attitude- making your birthday a great one. :)

Tiffany said...

How great! I'll have to remember to do a giveaway on my b-day too!

sandra said...

Happy early birthday and I would really like the book, but if that is taken, then the jewlery.

Thank you! Hope your 30th is awesome!

Happy birthday!

Um ... I want the jewelry.

stewbert said...

Or y'know, either of the other things.

And I did make a post about your birthday giveaway ... thanks for sharing the love.

Teri Lynn said...

Happy Birthday! I am Christy's sister-in-law but I would love to be entered into your fabulous contest. If I win I would love the earings, the book and then the cute outfit since my little girl is not so little anymore.
Thanks!
Teri
