The One With the Giveaway!!!!!







For the seventh day of my photo challenge, here are the five favorite photos, as most nominated by the few of you who check in every day or two. I think it’s funny that you like the grandma shoes! I gave you less than 24 hours to nominate a photo, so if you still want to weigh in and express an opinion, please feel free.

Now, here is the fun part. I’m doing a Giveaway to celebrate the 5000th hit on my blog… By commenting on this post, you will get one entry. If you link to my giveaway in your blog (just let me know), you will get a second entry, and if you agree to do the week-long PW photo challenge like I did, you get yet another. You should try the photo challenge…it was really fun! It made me look around and see things differently, and it made me get my camera out and dust it off. Digital photos are virtually free…so why don’t I take more pictures? And for heaven's sake...if you don't have a blog, comment anyway! You don't even need a Google ID to leave comments on my blog. But don't be anonymous, or I can't give you a prize.

Details of the Giveaway. There are two packages:

1. Photo Package. This is only redeemable in Southern California, so if you don’t live here, and don’t plan to visit here, don’t choose this one. It is a photo shoot. I will take pictures of you, or your kids, or your dog, or your motorcycle, or whatever you want. I will spend some time in Photoshop and do some cool effects for you. I won’t remove all your wrinkles…maybe some…but I will definitely remove any pre-cancerous growths and then show you the before and after, so that you will run in fright to the dermatologist to have them removed for real. I know you think I’m kidding…but I once photoshopped this old guy… okay, too much information. Then I will post your favorite photos from the shoot on my blog (only if you want) and I will provide you with your digital negatives.

2. Domestic Goddess Package: This one will find you, via expedited delivery, anywhere you live. It includes a sexy 50s-style apron (you must provide your own high-heeled shoes), my favorite cookbook (the one that makes me feel like a rockstar in the kitchen: Barefoot Contessa Parties), a loaf of fresh homemade bread and the best chocolate chip cookies in the world…enough to share, but I don’t recommend it.

I will draw for two winners, and each winner will have his or her choice of one of the packages. Even if both winners choose the same package, I will comply with the requests. I will draw at 5:00 p.m. PST this Sunday, April 4th. Good luck!

I love the pictures Cam took of you, you look beautiful. Good job, Cam! I guess I can't win anything since I don't live in So. Cal. You make me laugh and cry. I loved the one about the turkey, I can just imagine the conversation.

Cherie said...

P.S. Just read your profile. I don't find many who have them all ages and kind of spread out like I do.

I have one at each BYU (well almost, my middle is a Senior on her way). One in middle and one in Elementary school. Keeps life fun and challenging!

Janice said...

First time visitor coming over from Small House. I had fun looking at your blog. If I win I would have to pick Number 2. Thanks for letting me look around.

Kris Olson said...

Cool stuff! Pick me! I'm doing the photo challenge; took the photos but didn't blog yet. And I'm linking on my blog, too!

Hey thought I would check in from Small House. This looks fun are those shoes really grandma shoes?? I need them. I would wear them every day while doing my daily chores feeling so very chic.
Since I don't think that I could talk my hubby into moving just for a photoshoot, I pick door #2. Homemade goodness.
Happy 5000th hit!

Blog Linked...Comment Made...two for me... With AP Tests around the corner, when I am not at school, it seems school is at my house in the form of study sessions. So, I probably won't get to the picture taking thing unless I upload a picture of my graphing calculator or confused and stressed students.

Carolyn said...

I came from Kristin's blog. Great photos. I am in VA so no package for me, but an apron sounds nice.

Brooke and Aaron said...

This is Allison Nielsen's daughter Brooke..I'm sure they ARE the best chocolate chip cookies in the world because they're made by you. You should do a cooking show. I'm serious. You are superwoman. I'd love the 2nd giveaway. Sounds heavenly.

Amy said...
