200... who wants free stuff?

So, this is my 200th post.

Actually, it's more like my 240th or so... I lost the entire first "season" of my blog by getting click-happy on our old computer... It was a PC and I was losing my patience... and now we have a Mac and I'm a happy girl.  :)

Anyways, I know I recently did a giveaway, but I feel like I need to mark this momentous occasion.  200... that's a lot of writing for me in two years time.  Plus, my in-laws were here this weekend and were generous enough to give us a truck and a their old washer and dryer (I say "old," but really they're newer and nicer than any I've ever owned!).  So I feel like I should pass on some of that generosity by doing a giveaway for you, my loyal (and maybe not so loyal) readers.  ;)

Soooo.... what am I going to give away, you ask?  Well, some of you may know about my night job - selling Premier Designs jewelry.  Which, since Chad's football season is finally over (Can you hear the sweet sound of angels singing?  I can.), is finally in full swing again and will make me a busy, crazed lunatic until Christmas.  And no, I'm not complaining.  Trust me.  It's a good thing.  :)

I hear ya, I hear ya, "Okay lady, get on with the giveaway already," right?  Okay, okay... so I'm giving away
TWO $30 gift certificates
to Premier Designs!!!

Yes, TWO!

This is how it will work:

  • One drawing will be for those of you who are already my followers (and yes, facebook counts too).
  • The other drawing will be for those of you who become NEW followers!  No, it's not hard.  Just hit the "follow" button and follow the directions.  Super easy.  Takes like 30 seconds.  Or, if you're on facebook, you can find my profile and look under my "blog" tab and follow me through there.  Or, if you're not my facebook "friend," but you're on facebook, click on this link and search for "une autre mere" in the upper right corner and follow through there.
So, you have to be a "follower" to win this giveaway?  Yes.  Yes, you do.  Sorry.  But come on... I only have 41 google followers and 18 facebook followers and many of those are overlapped, so it doesn't even really count.  After 2 years and I couldn't even produce 60 followers?  Sad.  Pathetic.  Humiliating.  And I know many of you "unfollowers" are reading this because you tell me and you know random things about my life that only a blog stalker would know.  And I even know I have some male readers, because you've sheepishly admitted it under your breath.

So, it's time to come out from hiding and admit it.  Admit that you read this blog.  No matter how much dignity you may have to lose in the process.  You can do it.  I'm behind you 100%.  No fear.  Even if you're a boy.  Because I'm sure you have a lady in your life who would love some free jewelry!

Go ahead.  Leave a comment.  Let me know if you already follow or are a newbie.  And you can win yourself some of these: (The following items are all in the $30 price range)
We also have them in gold.

Or how about a shimmery bracelet?

Or a more casual look?

Would you prefer a ring?

Or a big, awesome pendant?

Did you know you can wear pins as pendants too?

 And, of course, we have plenty of great necklaces.

 Remember, it's not too early to get something sweet for your little girl for Christmas!

We have approximately 250 items that are $30 and under!  So, you'll have quite the selection to choose from!

So, go on now.  Follow me and leave a comment.  I won't tell anyone... *wink*

Wendi@Every Day Miracles said...

SO COOL! I didn't know you sold Premier! LOVE Premier jewelry! I even had a party once. Only one person came - but it was fun anyway. I've been to serveral parties, and the crisis pregnancy center, where I volunteer once a week, has an anual "spring bling" big fundraiser Premier designs jewelry party.
Anyway, yes, I follow and want some bling. :)

If I'm already a follower but decide to unfollow you and then decide to follow you again--like a new follower--would I qualify for 2 entries? You KNOW I love me some good PJ! Congrats on so many creative, cute posts! (I'd say it in French, but you haven't taught me "congratulations" yet!)

Missed you today after school. I've been meaning to ask you how you add those buttons of blogs under your "Where I roam" section. I can't seem to find it in the gadget section. I, too, love your style of writing and all the stories I can relate to. You are one cool gal! ;)

Kristen said...
