Friends, for the first time ever I’m participating in a Bloggy Carnival. The gist of it’s a breeze – just look through the posts made any time during September or October and leave at least one relevant comment on at least one of those posts – other than this one. The comments must apply to the post, and consist of more than just “great post.” ( Sorry, but I’m going to be a stickler on this … ENTRIES NOT ABIDING BY THIS SINGLE RULE WILL BE DISQUALIFIED.) You may enter up to 5 (five) times, but each entry must be on a different post and must apply to that particular post. When you make a comment, please make sure to leave an e-mail address or post using your google account so I have a way to contact you if you win. If I don’t have a way to contact you directly, I will choose another winner. Enter by midnight October 31st for your chance to win!

I’m drawing three (3) names. The first winner will receive a $25 gift card to Barnes and Noble. The second winner gets a new Homedics Bubble Bliss heated foot spa. The third winner gets autographed copies of Sharon Hinck’s Becky Miller series books: The Secret Life of Becky Miller and Renovating Becky Miller.

For more contests going on this week – check over a Bloggy Carnival for a HUGE list!

Two friends are also participating in the carnival. Check out their blogs too! Tracy Ruckman and Amy Barkman
