Welcome to Birthday Week! Giveaway #1 -CLOSED-


Hello everyone, and welcome to the kick off for Birthday Week here at My Frugal Family!

As many of you know, my birthday is this up coming week, and to celebrate, I've got 8 giveaways lined up to post, from 7 talented women and myself! There will be 1 giveaway each day, and 2 on Tuesday.

Today's giveaway is from Julie, who blogs at Singing Three Little Birds.

Julie makes some really cool items, including jewelry! For this giveaway, Julie has made 2 necklaces, and the winner will get to choose which necklace they want to receive. Below are the winner's choices.

Now, for the details on the contest. Each of my contests this week will be done the same way, but the details will be re-posted each time.

The Rules For the Contests:

1. Each Contest is being sponsored by another blog, except 1 contest that I'll be hosting myself. To help thank these wonderful women, I am asking that you to Visit the Singing Three Little Birds blog, and find either a product you love, a project you love, or a post they've done that you love, and comment back to me with it. This way, they get some new viewers, hopefully, and can feel the love from my viewers!

2. An email address is required- again, if you do not feel comfortable with email harvesting, please use something such as (at) and (dot) to break it up a bit, so that it can be used to contact you!

3. Twitter, Tweet, Facebook, and Blog about the contests for an extra entry. Post a link to where you twittered, tweeted (I know, it's the same thing), facebooked, or blogged about it, and post this as a second comment for a second entry.  

4. The winner chosen will be posted on the blog, and also emailed by me. Please check your emails & this blog to see if you won anything- if I can't get a mailing address from the winner after 3 days, I will have to pick a new winner!

Enjoy the contests, and please, visit the sponsors- they are a talented group of ladies!

The winner of this giveaway will be drawn on Saturday, May 1st, using to randomly pick a number from the comments. 

  • If no email address was given on the winning comment, a new winner WILL be chosen, so please, remember to leave contact information! If you are worried about web crawlers snagging the email address, please feel free to substitute the @ for (at) and the . for (dot) so your email address reads like this: herberkids3(at)yahoo(dot)com, instead of the normal way. As long as I can understand what it should be, you will be entered!
  • The winner will be emailed by myself, and the sponsor of the contest. The prize will be sent from the sponsor, so it's important to make sure that you answer one or both of the emails with your snail mail address for shipping!
  • If a response is not received within 5 days time, a new winner will be drawn, so please- respond!
Good luck to all the entries, and don't forget to check back again tomorrow for another exciting giveaway!!

I thought the washer necklaces would be a cute and easy project for my 3 granddaughters. Loved the first flower shirt, but seemed like a little above my ability level to share with my grandchildren.

Loved the blue shirt with flower and the washer necklaces. I have been wanting to try one of those myself!

I have been following Singing Three Little Birds for a while, but until her post on April 7th, I never thought about the meaning behind her blog name. I love the song and have been singing it with my son lately. These necklaces are awesome.

Looking forward to the other giveaways. Happy BIRTHDAY!
