Contests for me and you!

One of the message boards I am on, Upstate Moms (for moms in Upstate SC), is always having contests. And I seem to win more than my fair share! When I first joined the board, I had no idea there was a contest going on. However, I won! The proze was 4 tickets to the American Idol Show at the Bi-Lo Center. We sold those tickets and bought groceries! LOL

Then earlier this year, they had a contest where the prize was a $50 Visa gift card. They give away about 30 of those and I won one. :-)

Their most recent contest was for First Mom. Anyone who wanted to could submit the name of another mom who posts. "The nominee should be someone whose posts you always want to read, who makes you laugh or cry or think, who is a vital part of our UpstateMoms community." Some very nice ladies nominated me and I won. I got a tote bag, a t-shirt, a mouse pad, and a few magnets, all with the Upstate Mom logo. They also took my picture with my chidlren and posted it on the website. Here is that picture:

Now I have read of another contest. A lady on the Yahoo Group, Patriarch's Wives, is having a contest on her blog. You can win a $25 gift certificate to Fruitful Vine Creations, a lovely business that does custom wall lettering and signs. You can have a plaque made with scriture on it! Here is their website: http://www.fruitfulvinecreations.com/

To enter the contest, go to this blog and read the contest rules: http://thereisaseason.blogspot.com/2008/04/for-another-contest.html

If I keep winning prizes at this rate, my taxes will be very complicated next year! LOL

Hi Martha...

First of all, thanks for joining in on the fun over at my blog! My goal is to have a contest once a month, so stop by often *smile*!

I wanted to clarify that the $25 gift certificate could be used for wall lettering, not a wall plaque. However, they are beautiful either way! If you go to the Fruitful Vine site, you can see some great samples of Scripture right on the wall! I have a 'wish list' for several different walls in our house...one of those will be marked off soon! We are having Philippians 4:8 made up now for above the TV. (We don't have cable or anything, but it is a good reminder even for the videos we choose!)

Blessings to you -
