1,000 Fans Giveaway Extravaganza!

Note: I may earn money or products from the companies, products, or links mentioned in this post.

Well it’s hard to believe this day has finally arrived. I have been planning this giveaway extravaganza for months now and I hope that you all enjoy the chance to win these amazing prizes. When I started out blogging I never thought that people would enjoy reading my thoughts and what I have to say, but I am so thankful for all of you and the opportunity to hear your stories and read your comments and emails. You all are a huge blessing to me.

June 1st I hit 1,000 fans on my Facebook page and I am so glad for the opportunity to encourage you all and to share a little bit of my life as well. To thank you all I wanted to give something back to you. So here is a little bit about this giveaway and how this is going to work.

One winner will win all of the first 11 giveaways. Anyone can enter as long as you are in the U.S or Canada. Once a winner is picked and announced then the winner’s info will be sent to each of these ladies who have offered their prizes and then they will each send the winner their prize. So lots of mail and packages for that one winner!

For the 12th prize I ask that only those who live in Middle Georgia or those that can travel to accept that prize enter. Yes, you can enter both contests if it applies to you. Those who have graciously given prizes for you to win are allowed to enter contests, but if they win, they are not allowed to win the prize they donated and another winner will be picked for that prize.

Thanks to the wonderful ladies who donated all these prizes. I couldn’t have done this without them! I hope that you will take a few minutes and go and visit each of them on their sites. Enjoy!


1. The Good Wife’s Guide (paperback book)
I have been following Darlene’s blog Time-Warp Wife for awhile now and have enjoyed the book she co-authored with Candace Cameron Bure – Reshaping it All: Motivation for Physical and Spiritual Fitness. This week, Darlene is offering you the chance to win her most recent book in paperback.

Find Darlene:

More about the book:

“In The Good Wife’s Guide New York Times best-selling author Darlene Schacht encourages women to joyfully serve their families. In doing so she offers reasons for achieving a well-managed home backed by scripture and gleaned from experience. As well she provides readers with detailed cleaning and organizing schedules for practical application.

The Good Wife’s Guide inspires us to make faith and family our first priorities from a place of sacrificial love. It reminds women that they were created with a specific purpose in mind, which is that of being a help meet. In supporting our husbands and living in unity we reflect God’s blueprint for marriage.”


 2. Small Pouch (Etsy Shop Item)

I have been a fan of April’s blog – Marine Parents and her Etsy shop for awhile now and just love the products she comes up with for her shop! Here is a little bit about what you can win from her!

“Winner may choose any small pouch currently listed in the Marine Parents shop {a $15 value!}.  Choose from a multitude of ruffled pouches in beautiful designs & military fabrics.”  The small pouches you are able to pick from are here: Small Pouches.

A little more about April and her shop:
“In March 2011, my hunky Marine of a husband taught me to sew — quite the odd start-up for a business, right?  Given my abounding entrepreneurial spirit, I quickly jumped on Etsy & began selling super simple items like ribbon snap toy savers & wipes cases.  Over the last year, my shop has grown tremendously & I have been so blessed to expand the products I offer to include my signature military make-up bags, dSLR camera strap covers, iPad & eReader sleeves & toddler backpacks.  I hope that you’ll stop by & check out my shop!!”

6. Pasta and Olive Oil Straight From Italy!

I have known Jessica from Jessica Lynn Writes for quite awhile now. We met online before either of us were married to our military men, and then several years after, she got stationed at the same base as me. I got to know her in person and found out what a sweet and wonderful person she is. She even took our family pictures and my son’s 1st birthday photos! Jessica is currently stationed in Italy and has decided to giveaway a bottle of olive oil and some pasta – fresh from Italy!

Jessica Lynn is an Albuquerque native currently living in Northern Italy with her Air Force husband. They are days away from their fourth deployment and she’s keeping positive by looking forward to snail mail, middle-of-the-night Skype dates, and eating gelato for dinner.

Her blog, Jessica Lynn Writes, is a smorgasbord about life, love, travel, food, and everything in between. You can also find her on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and as a contributing writer for SpouseBuzz.


7. Scentsy Warmer (Tiara)

I have been a fan of Julie from Soldier’s Wife, Crazy Life for quite awhile now. I followed her journey from Germany back to U.S and enjoy her military posts. She is a wonderful person and military wife and I am so glad that I can follow her on her journeys. Julie also sells Scentsy and is very happy to offer the chance to win this the beautiful warmer from her catalog and a bar to go with it! The winner may choose a bar from this link: Scentsy Bars.

“My name is Julie and I have been an Army Wife for 6.5 years now.  We are from California but live in TN now after spending 4 years in Germany.  I love to blog, read, drink coffee, take pictures and sell Scentsy.  We have three little boys who are 7, 5 and 1 and have been married for almost 10 years..”

Scentsy Wickless Candles are a safe alternative to regular candles.  You plug your warmer in and the wax heats up and the room fills with the scent.  We carry 80 different scents and many different warmers as well as many other products.  We just added a bath and body and laundry line called Layers. This particular warmer – “Tiara” is a pink confection straight out of a little princess’s fantasy:  faux jewels and a swirling pattern, topped with a fairy crown.
