Sping Fling: Spring Is Here!

March 10, 2009 by Michelle

Yep, I know… two posts in one day. That’s kind of unusual for me. BUT I made such yummy dinner on Sunday that I wanted to be sure to share that for TMTT. And the SITS Spring Fling is today, so I had to participate there, too.

For the Spring Fling, there’s way cool celebrations going on. Every hour, they have a giveaway from one of their sponsors, and they’re some pretty cool stuff. So far this morning, it’s been some great jewelry and some really cool downloadable card templates. I can’t wait to see what the rest of the day brings.

In addition to this (because this isn’t enough, right?), SITS girls are all hosting their own individual giveaways today. Go here to see the full list of pretty awesome stuff — but stay away from the prizes I really want to win, would you?

I dithered and dithered about what to give away. It took me a lot of thought to come up with what I wanted to do. And then I changed my mind. It had to be something spring related since this is the Spring Fling after all. Finally I made up my mind.

Prize A is Gap Scent Editions with 5 blendable perfume oils and scent tray. You know how you find a perfume you like but you wish you could just tweak it a little? Now you can completely make your own scents. It has some suggestions on the back, or you can make your own. This version has crushed peony, sueded musk, sheer tuberose, woven cassis and crepe gardenia as its scents.

Prize B is a fun spring tote. I’ve had my eye on this one for a long time, because it’s so fun. It’s just the right size to put stuff to run to the pool (someday) or bring home happy groceries or just pal around in. The blue corners and handles are sueded — see, I’m tying in with the first prize here!

And Prize C is a mystery prize — see how it’s all nice and wrapped up? I promise that it’s something that I bought an extra one of myself because I think it’s cool. AND it’s something that you need in springtime if you live in the Midwest.

So what do you think? Fun? Want the Spring Is Here package?

All you need to do is let me know your favorite thing about spring and comment below for an entry. And I’ll go with the crowd on this one — if you follow me (already follow or start today), I’ll give you an extra three entries. Leave a second comment letting me know. US addresses only, please. And make sure I can contact you via email if you win. I will use Random.org to choose the winning entry — all your names go onto a spreadsheet in the order commented, with three lines being devoted to the follower entries. Oh, and if I don’t hear back from the winner by Friday evening, I’ll choose another winner. Sound good?

I’ll shut the contest down tonight when I go to bed, which is probably going to be around 10 or 11pm CST. Winners to be posted tomorrow, so come back to check.

Good luck, and have fun with all the Spring Fling contests!
