Win #263



It had to be the Funky Monkey, lol.  

I won this this morning, which reminded me that I was behind and had to get on top of posting before I just never got around to it and needed 80 posts to catch up.  Funky Monkey features a ton of adorable Etsy shops and this time it's Landon Lacey, an incredible jewelry maker and I can't wait to get this beautiful necklace to sport around the office, I know I will get lots of compliments on it.

Win #262



Yet another Funky Monkey win.  

I just can't get enough of the Funky Monkey blog and all of their super cute reviews and giveaways, there are lots of fun and unique Etsy shops that are featured there and I really love that.

I won a sign from the Paola Brown shop, I received a lovely sign with someone's dogs names on it, then promptly had to print out a shipping label to the actual person that belonged to and then they sent me mine.  Gotta love a mix up!  We hung our sign in the kitchen and it really ties our room together, im so happy with it!

Win #261



I love Gay NYC Dad, I have won from him multiple times, he's an amazing Dad, Husband, and person.  Thanks to him I was able to score this big Pikachu plush!  I saved him for a birthday present and he was a huge hit.  If you love gaming, Disney, toys, reviews, parenting, and giveaways than go visit Mitch and read his awesome blog.

Win #260



Kelly Stilwell is an amazing blog writer and the author of Virtually Yours, another fantastic blog where you can read reviews and get some great info too!  I won a $20 Amazon gift code from her Facebook page and actually just used it for some Christmas gifts last week!

Win #259


I am a winner from Susan's Disney Family Blog again!  She has a great blog and posts on any number of topics, more importantly she's a huge Disney fanatic and you can read her blog if you need to know ANYTHING Disney related.  Thank you to Susan who made it possible for me to score a blue-ray of the Lego Movie for my home.  Everythign really IS awesome!

Sorry!

I just wanted to apologize for disappearing for 6 months, man time flies.

I actually was laid off from my job for three months, while most people think that leaves more time available for sweeping, it's actually less.  Finding a job is a full time job.  I managed to score an amazing new job making WAYYYYY more than I had before.  This also means I have like zero time lately for any contests or mommy blogs.

The god news is, now that Christmas is getting closer my load is lightening and I am able to enter hear and there, I do have to post a bunch of wins that were never posted and that's what I will do today!

Win #256


It's sometimes the smallest wins that really get the most attention.  At least from my kids, anytime I win stuff for them that they can have right away they love (I save lots of stuff for birthdays and Christmas).  Susan's Disney Family Blog is one that I visit daily, you all know this, I win from her all the time.  She has awesome posts too, even the non-contest posts suck me in.  So Yay im getting one of the awesome new Denny's kids cups, let the fight to the death begin over which kid gets it first lol.  Thanks to Susan, go check her out and enter some too ;)

Win #247


I won something from the flairist blog a while back, I really nice piece of jewelry to be precise.  This was a contest for just their twitter and Facebook followers.  I almost feel like I stole this sweater from them because only 15 entries were received.  Maybe they are in need of a marketing/social media coordinator (wink wink). I winked because that's my job, stay with me people.

The flairist is actually a phenomenal blog/entity that focuses on young and inspirational women with goals and aspirations to become more.  I love their writers and I love their outlook.  Anything that inspires young women to be more empowered and teaches us how to take control of our lives, careers and self image is alright in my book.

So go check them out on Facebook and like them, it's worth it.

Win #246


Thanks to "As They grow up" blog for the super awesome giveaway sponsored by balance bar!  I scored some awesome sports earbuds and a balance bar prize pack!

Win #245


Life with Levi is a great blog!  I've had her on my radar a long time as well, as far as blogs I read and win from go.  Thanks to her and her post on ugly Christmas sweaters i was able to score a $50 gift card from Savers!  I have to take a trip to my college town area to go because I don't have one in my town but it's ok they have the best mall ever there!  

In related news I won my families ugly sweater contest this year, lol.

Win #244


The Funky MOnkey is as always one of my top favorite blogs to win from.  Super low entry, great prizes, easy entry methods and daily entry methods.  This is such a win-win.  I have won from them a $50 gift card to Christina Nicole Studios.  I used it pretty much immediately and bought a pair of earrings.  There was a limit so that I had to actually spend money in their store to use this gift car, which is in fact kind of a bummer compared to some of the times I have won and they cover EVERYTHING, even shipping.  I know, I know you're not supposed to complain.  Otherwise I am super happy!

Win #243!


It's rare I score on Facebook, it's just a saturated market...  That being said I still throw in my hat a lot of the times for the companies that I follow.  Nashelle is one of those companies, they make adorable custom jewelry and they hosted a 12 days of Christmas giveaway that I happen to catch while working from home and tossed my comment into, low and behold I won one of these great initial bracelets.  So happy, a great little Facebook win to throw into the mix.  Go check them out and like them on Facebook.

Gosh I love Christmas time giveaways, it's just like shopping online for all the stuff I want!  I go enter Cher's giveaways at Mom and More every single day, she has an entry method that you can vote for her and get an extra entry every single day.  Again her's are mostly low entry, talking like under 3,000 which in my eyes is pretty sweet, especially when you are stacking those daily entries!

Win #231, a very special and creative win


A friend of mine turned me onto a really cool site that's still in Beta, created by a former google employee that involves art and collecting.  I signed up and it took all of five minutes for me to become addicted to NeonMob.  Basically it's a virtual card collecting club in which all the cards are created in sets and each set is created by a different artist.

Everyday you get free sets to open and you can collect and trade to obtain an entire set.  I have 4 complete sets right now and am working on more.  Each set of cards has a theme and includes chases and variants.

It's like a fancy version of pokemon crossed between Magic the Gathering with a sprinkle of art school all tied together with the magical goo of evaporated spit from mouth breathing nerds.  I love it.

So I have already won just by discovering said website.  Well you all know that when a contest email was sent out to member I had to participate.  I have a good record of winning anything that involves creativity.  Im an artist myself what do you expect?  So basically you had to write a short description for one of the cards in the latest set.  Check out the blog post from NeonMob creator here.  I won runner up and my prize is a very special and rare variant card.  Be jealous nerds, be very jealous.

So if you want to join me please do, sign up and start collecting and trade cards with me, it's fun and why not?  The best part is that it is really only about 5 minutes out of your day, it's not a site you spend hours on and there's no commenting or drama like that.  You don't necessarily interact with other members aside from the trading.  So it's fun, not time consuming and drama free.

Should you want to sign up please use this link:

SIGN UP HERE

For every friend I invite I get extra cards, im not selling you for extras either, it's really fun and I would invite you all even if there was no incentive. So what are you waiting for!

Win #230


I don't think as of now I have ever won a decent Facebook contest.  It makes me want to just stop sharing and commenting and bugging everyone with my shares and posts.  I did however comment on Del Montes Facebook page answering a question and wound up scoring a $75 gift card to the container store!  I can't wait to use it and get all organized.

So thanks to Del Monte, whom I follow out of love not out of desire for winning stuff ;)

Win #229


I have another mystery prize a comin'

Thanks to "Feels Like Home" blog for hosting the Bounce #Bounceback from Summer contest.  I won and I am getting a prize box worth $47 and i have no idea what's inside!  I'm sure it will be chock full of bounce products, which is awesome because I totally use bounce.  Im a huge fan of the dryer bars because I don't have to put any sheets in the dryer for months at a time.  I will take a picture when it comes and share what was inside!

I won out of 300 comments, this proves to enter those low entry giveaways, it pays off!

Thanks to Tara at Feels Like Home and to Bounce.

*song to mario brothers underworld theme* 
Baby baby baby.  baby baby baby. ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba BABY!

Yeah it's going to be like this for a while until I won all the baby thing on the internets.

I scored a sweet nursing pillow!  I had to call and let my friend know though because I thought if I didn't she register for one.  This win comes to you from Mommy's Memorandum.  I don't think I have won from her in a long time but she has multiple contests often!  I am trying to win a copy of the Little Mermaid on blue-ray from her at the moment as well.


Win #225


It's BABY EXTRAVAGANZA again!

That's right I have another friend who just found out they are pregnant!  That means I will ENTER ALL THE BABY CONTESTS!  But seriously baby stuff accounts for like 50% of the mom blog giveaways so it's easy to score some stuff to gift to my friends and I just love that!

This happens to be yet another low entry Dandy Giveaway.  Bear Hunt CD and stuffed bears, love it!

If you don't enter on Dandy they are awesome, great people, great giveaways, low entry and they always get back to you super fast!

DO IT!

The post I never wanted to write


18 wins ago, #206 was a unique and excitable win for me.  I won a bouquet of wax roses with a piece of jewelry attached. The win was from Cyndee over at Rude Mom Blog.  I want to start with the fact that while sometimes hard to reach Cyndee has been nothing but polite and flexible in talking to me.  I do not have a ton of information about why the company hasn't sent out the prize but the blogger did inform me that she is also missing some compensation as well so that makes me slightly angry.

So after a huge 224 wins this is the very first time that I didn't get my prize.  While im bummed I have to remember two things.

One: 
This happens.
From what I understand in the sweeper community it's a fairly common occurrence.  It's a shame that a company would set up a giveaway and not commit.  It can also sometimes make the blogger look bad or cause tension between them and the readers, which I am not okay with.  Luckily im understanding and I know it is not her fault.

Two:
It was Free.
This is my hobby.  It doesn't cost me anything.  I do it when I have time, sometimes I have more time than others but it brings me a lot of pleasure to enter and to win things.  The bottom line is though that This is a prize and while I did a small amount of work to "earn" it, it in question is still something that I didn't have before.  So basically I am not really that upset because it's not like I got the prize and then they took it back, I never had it to begin with so I am not attached to something.  I also get that it isn't that big of a deal, there are more important things to be angry about in todays world.

I will still read Rude Mom, I will still participate in her giveaways.  I will Not be buying or recommending that anyone buy products from Jewelry Candles.

I don't know how to handle the number of wins at this point, it would be easy to just keep going but in fact I have to subtract one win from my tally.  We'll cross that bridge at some point I guess.

Win #224


It's another Dandy of a giveaway!  Thanks to the Dandy Giveaway blog I am getting a case of Fruchi smoothies.  Might not seem like much but this saves me of a whole week of drinks for my kids that I would have bought anyway!  I have never tried this variety so im excited to give it a go!  Thanks to Dandy and if you wanted to read more about Fruchi check out this post here.

Win #223 Thank God.


I say "thank God" because well, for two reasons.  Reason number one, as previously mentioned I have terrible OCD and the fact that my number of wins went that long at 222 is astounding to me.  I was this close to wearing a foil hat and locking myself indoors, I am making a pinchy gesture with my fingers right now to indicate that it was serious.  
Secondly I happen to win by quoting the bible!  How bout that, my title has two meanings, it makes me so happy.  I follow a lot of blogs and stores on Facebook because I enter things and love stuff so much that I click "like" possibly way too often.  The benefit of this is that I get to participate in fun things like "Name that verse Wednesday" from The Melted Crayon store on Etsy.  I happen to come in second place because I quoted Jude and not Ephesians but it so happens that their verses start in the same way so guess what, I still win!  
I ordered these two sets for my kids stockings and it was only $4.75 because of shipping.  I feel like today is obviously blessed, mostly because I can officially feel not anxious about the looming 222 that was on the blog.  PHEW!  Go check out The Melting Crayon because she is awesome and that is all.

Win #222


This is an awesome win, it's another from the Funky Monkey first and foremost. Secondly it's going to aid in a great picture this year with my daughter.  The prize was any one item from Sweet N Sassy.  I chose a similar headband for her to wear for her pictures this year.

I must say that I do suffer from mild to severe OCD and the fact that this is win 2-2-2 is going to drive my bonkers until I win again.  I am already having anxiety over it so dear winners gods please let me win soon so I can get rid of this annoying number from my life, thanks.

Win #221 Radio/creative


I listen to mostly talk radio.  I listen to Jason Ellis on Sirius Satellite radio in the afternoons and as i drive home from work.  So while this design for a T-shirt makes absolutely no sense to you it is actually in perfect context with the show. 

The show is a raunchy, no holds barred, sports infused, manly, canada loving kind of show.  I realize that it's pretty diverse just by that brief number of adjectives, jeeze.  So yeah it's basically right up my ally.  Now by Jen Code anything that I participate in in real life that involves a contest I must enter.  So when Jason had a T-shirt contest I for sure threw my hat into that ring.  I designed three but this was my favorite, it stems from a bit they had in which Jason named himself the Great Gazellis while talking about what kind of animal he'd be if he were to swap species.

So I submitted and did not win.  Then they decided to give the top 5 liked shirts on Facebook a consolation prize.  I already had a lot of likes from being one of the first submitters and one of the very select few they actually discussed on live radio.  Well I took the third spot and now eagerly await my box of shwag, will post pictures when it comes to me.

Win #220


Winning something worth a lot of dough!

ok so that was a terrible joke but at least it lets everyone know that I am super excited to have won something so useful.  I already use natures own products in my house so the fact that I don't have to pay for them for the next few shopping trips is ahh-mazing.  Just like the ahh-mazing blog I won from!

Thank you so much to Teresa for running such a great review blog and for scoring me 10 free nature's products to feed my family!

Win #219


My kids are a marketers dream.  They see it on TV and they want it.  It might be that they watch a lot of sprout which airs a tremendous amount of "made for TV" merchandise and commercials or it might be something else but they want all the things that are advertised there, ala: Dream lites, light up pillows, cups that you shake that make ice cream and slurpees, lights you take to the potty and things you stuff crap into.  Sometimes I wish they would just ask for normal toys that don't have inflated price points and that I don't have to travel to the far reaches of Bed Bath and Beyond to find.

Well the kids saw a commercial For Bendastix and it just so happens one of my favorite blogs, Being MVP (button on the right hand side) ran a giveaway for them and i won, it softens my cruel cold heart when I get to win something that I would no doubt buy at Christmas time.  As a matter of fact one year I won almost all of my Holiday gifts.  So a huge thanks goes out to Being MVP, read her, she is awesome and enter her many giveaways too!
