Giveaways · The Grey Tail

the grey tail gives away!

dear stitching friends, this blog experience is only two weeks old, but I’m getting so many viewers already I’d like to say thank you.. and what says thank you better than a giveaway..?! 😀

I’ve been thinking about this, and the Festa del Ricamo comes on the very weekend the grey tail celebrates it’s first month on the blogosphere.. so after some mumbling mumbling I decided.. I’m having my first giveaway!

I guess the running time of a giveaway should be two weeks, and doing a little maths while checking the calendar, it should start Friday.. but you know what, 4 more days won’t hurt anybody so.. it starts NOW! 😀

this is how it works: add a comment on THIS post, so I’ll be sure I won’t leave anyone out.. anybody from all around the world can take part, all you need to do is post a comment using some kind of ID/email/hieroglyphics I can google up/etc. saying you’d like to take part in the grey tail giveaway ..easy right? 😉

at the end of the month I’ll take all your names from the comment section, write them down, make little slips of paper and have my mom pick out the lucky winner.. (she doesn’t have a clue what a blog is, let alone that I’m having a giveaway on my own.. so fancy her face when she’ll see me coming with a bowl filled with slips in my hands..)

and now what you’re all waiting for.. 😀

the prize will consist of newly purchased awesomeness I’ll find at the Festa del Ricamo.. I already have something on my mind, something terribly hard to find around the world that you might like.. and then something packaged I’m allowed to ship, and you’re allowed to eat 😀

I know a giveaway is supposed to consist of things you already have an therefore give away, but I like so much the idea of making my own stash shopping in Tuscany, bringing home something for you as well..!

so now it’s your turn! don’t forget the deadline is 31st May at midnight (I’ll wait till it’s midnight in every continent, promised! :D) when the grey tail celebrates it’s 1st month of life in blogland!

(don’t worry if you don’t see your comment published straight away, wordpress wants me to approve them one  by one, so it might take some time before you see them 😀 – if you’re not leaving an email address or blog link, remember to come June 1st to see who wins!)

– – –

have fun while following the grey tail,

the more the merrier! 😀

Stitching, friendship, and sharing everyday life stuff! Way cool. Thanks for entering me in your give-away. Ciao, Dana Bradley

We use to “talk with each other on the stitches village, I never got my trip to Italy due to an accident. So maybe I will win a treat from there now. Thanks , hugs to you from Angela.
