You're All Winners to Me!

This is my LAST week of summer vacation, and to mark the end of my lazy days I have set up a little Beautiful Mess contest. This is to encourage you lurkers out there to leave a comment, you contest lovin' girls the opportunity to win something fab and for me to be able to spread some l-o-v-e! All you need to do is leave a comment and next Sunday I will post the winners. I am going to use this to determine the winners. You can only enter once...sorry girls:) I would like to take credit for this little scheme to see who is hanging out reading my blog, but I totally stole this idea from Jonni.

***Even if you are a regular reader of my blog please leave a comment! The more the merrier!

It is a well known fact that I love all things etsy. All prizes are hand made...by someone other than me:)

First Prize is this very pretty Amy Butler fabric camera strap. If you win this strap but don't have a camera to put it on...ummm you can give it away on your blog:)



Second Prize are these lovely Blue China earrings.



Third Prize is this very cute key wristlet.



Good luck and if you don't win don't worry.....remember you are all winners to me!

Hopefully the random world knows that my camera NEEDS that beautiful strap!! LOL I might actually wear a strap if I had a pretty one!

Thanks for the encouragement on Ky's blog... every word that is ever written to us is such a huge boost for our tired souls! It means the world to us!

I've been commenting lately...maybe I'm not a lurker anymore?!
Thanks for adding me to your bloglines, by the way! I've gotten some more traffic lately. Must be cuz of you:)
Hoping to win something. They are all great gifts!!
Enjoy your last week. I'm making my lists now...and I'm getting overwhelmed. Why does it seem like my last week is always filled up with things I should have done weeks ago?? Now I don't think I have time to sleep this week...though it's just preparing me for going back to work, I guess.
Clean, appts, paperwork, shopping....wanna come along:)

Cool idea to run a contest. I live far, far too far away for it to be a good idea to enter the contest! The postage would be a nightmare! :0 But I still think it's a fabby idea!
