The Fall Y'all Blog Giveaway


Ok, so I wanted to do this in the summer, but found out about it too late to participate. So, I am going to join in this time! Shannon over at Rocks in my Dryer is hosting this giveaway where many bloggers offer various prizes. It is quite fun to jump around sites and see what's being offered-- but only if you have no life and nothing better to do like me. I will probably, sadly, sit at my computer tonight and do nothing but visit sites and leave comments. I don't know if that sounds fun or pathetic to you all. Just don't tell me if you think it's the latter!


But let's get to the important stuff! What am I giving away? Well, I wanted to give away something that represented the theme of my blog, Cheaper By The Half Dozen. So, I am giving away half a dozen gifts--


4 cd's of messages I've given, meant to encourage you:

  • Christmas JOY (are you ready?? I saw my first commercial last night!)

  • Becoming A Woman of Influence

  • I'd Be A Great Homeschooler (If It Weren't For These Kids!)

  • Cultivating Creativity at Home

I will also throw in a copy of The P31 Woman magazine and a copy of the fall issue of The Old Schoolhouse, making six gifts in all!

Just leave me a comment and I will randomly choose a winner from the comments on November the 5th! (Just to clarify, the gift package goes to one winner!) But in your comments, it would be fun to hear which one appeals to you!

Pin It!

I am new to the blogs of Proverbs 31, but I have been reading your devotions for over a year. I really have enjoyed reading your blog.

For me, all 4 CD's call to me. I am struggling with direction in my life, as a wife, a mother and a God-called minister not working as a minister.

Thanks for blogging! It is very encouraging to me and many other women!

M. Milbourn said...

I think it's horrible that you're sitting around visiting sites and leaving comments...I would NEVER do that. :-)

Hi Marybeth,
(I'm logged in on my husband's account)
I've read your articles in Above Rubies--have you gotten #82 yet??? I wait for it everyday!!
I saw the link to your blog on Prov. 31.
I think I'm most curious about the sample issue of the magazine, so that's why I'm entering.
Thanks a bunch!

Oh please count me in. Don't know that I'm ever really ready for Christmas..... LOL

Debbie said...

Wow! Ms. Marybeth...very nice and multiple giveaways! I must say your family is beautiful. It is easy to see that you all are blessed.

My choice was easy. Being a Woman of Influence. It seems I'm always over looked when presenting ideas but the first one everyone runs to when they need counsel. I am truly a problem solver and good counsel which over time has given me good insight to prevention and ideas to prevent...but no one seems to listen to that much.
So that's my story...have a great weekend. This was my first giveaway week and I must say very fun! Sorry to write a book! :-)
