Giveaway!

Recently I was contacted by a representative from CSN Stores and asked if I'd like to host a giveaway on my blog to give my readers a chance to win a product from one of their websites absolutely free of charge.  Of course I jumped all over that idea.  After all, you guys are the best readers a girl could ask for; you deserve it! 

CSN Stores are online houseware shopping sites that provide pretty much anything you possibly need to outfit your home.  They offer brand name products from the convenience of your home.  Some items even ship for free!  I spent hours browsing before I could settle on one product to offer for the giveaway.  There were some gorgeous kids beds, beautiful orange sets of Rachael Ray cookware, bar stools in every color of the rainbow, and tons home decorations.  Eventually I settled on a product I thought all of us could use:


Everybody cooks at some point, right?  These lovelies are a two piece Paula Dean stoneware mixing bowl set.  The larger bowl holds three quarts, and the smaller holds two.  At a retail value of $39.95, one lucky blogger is getting quite the steal.  Sure, Paula may use a little too much butter for my tastes, but these mixing bowls don't come with a lifetime supply of the yellow stuff so we're in good shape.  ;)  Plus, I think these are gorgeous.

So, wanna know what you need to do to win these babies?  Of course you do!  The ways you can earn chances are listed below.
  1. Leave a comment telling me how much you'd love to own this prize for your first entry.  Please include your email address so that I can contact you if you win.
  2. Check out any of CSN Stores many sites [examples at end of post] and let me know what products you like best for an extra entry. 
  3. Followers may leave an extra comment for one more chance.
  4. If you blog or tweet about this giveaway with a link to this post, comment again for a fourth chance at winning.
  5. If you have EVER participated in my Making a Difference Mondays by leaving a link in one of my Mcklinky boxes, let me know the date of your participation in the comment box for another entry.
The winner will be randomly selected and announced on Saturday February 27th, and notified via email.  If the winner has failed to respond with contact information within a weeks time of notification I will select another winner.

Unfortunately, this giveaway is only open to readers from the USA or Canada.  I'm sorry, all my international visitors.  :(  The company can't ship that far. 

Now get to commenting, readers.  This one's all for you.  :)

  1. I need mixing bowls! I would love to win!! Seriously, since the news posted about plastic mixing bowls being a possible causation of cancer, I've been completely freaked out and have made far fewer cookies. :(

  7. These two pieces are very nice looking. I really like the colors and textures.

    I live in Thailand, so I cannot participate in this giveaway. I just wanted to tell you that you chose very well for your readers.

  8. They're so nice! Aesthetically pleasing, and functional all in one. That's how I like my pottery. :)

    I would love to own these because I'm very much into baking nowadays. Especially cupcakes!! These bowls will help me do so because I barely have enough bowls for mixing as it is. Also hard to clean. These would be a great addition, and I could get more baking done quicker! :) :)

    Thanks!

  17. i have an obsession with bookcases, so those are the first things i looked at. the bookworm shelf is awesome. also, the compartmentalized bookshelf is exactly what i need (my books are way too crowded right now). too bad they're both waay out of my budget.

  23. I looove these mixing bowls. =] I am just learning how to bake, I'm good with making other things, but baking has always been hard for me, for some reason. Anyways, if I win, I think I'd be a little more excited to cook, since the bowls are so pretty...
