GIVEAWAY!!!

It's my First Giveaway!!

Here's what you can win:


1) A Saintly Softie from this etsy shop. Click on the link and look through these wonderful little dolls, and tell me which one you would like! Here's Saint Margaret and Saint Anthony of Padua as examples.







AND


2) This fantastic and adorable apron from Feather Your Nest. Her husband has recently passed away, and she is selling her items for 25% off. I am loving the fact that I can help her out just a little bit by doing this giveaway :)

AND


3) Last but not least, a $10 gift card to Dunkin Donuts, because I am slightly addicted to their coffee (light with 2 splendas...thank you!) If you don't have a DD's near you, I will substitute a $10 gift card to a store of your choosing :)



OK, so to win, all I need you to do is:
1) Leave me a comment (and tell me which Saintly Softie you would like).
2) If you post about this giveaway on your blog, you can leave me another comment with the link, and you will be entered a second time.
The giveaway will be open until 11:59 pm on February 13, 2010 so that the I can announce the winner on Valentine's Day :)

  1. Oooo I love that Etsy shop! My favorite one is Saint Gianna

    I love that apron too! I love how it doesn't look like a standard apron

    We don't have Dunkin Donuts here, nor by Steve either, so if I were to win that you could pick someone else's name for it :)

  3. I LOVE those dolls! My favorite is Saint Clare (but then there's Our Lady of Guadelupe and St. Anne...oh, dear, how to choose!)

    Beautiful apron - it's almost too pretty to wear while doing food prep!

    Congrats on your blogging milestone!

  6. I do not think my last comment went through . . . computer issues.

    I would have to say St George or St Edward . . . or any saint with a sword. I do have boys afterall.

  7. How exciting! Since I'm scheduled for my c-sec on the 3rd, Saint Blaise is a pick, however this little boy of ours is Raphael Francis, so Archangel Raphael and Francis of Assisi are kind of picks of mine as well! :-)

    I'll post about your giveaway on my blog as well!

    We've lined up the baptism for Raphael for the 14th of February! What a great day! :-)

    Congrats on the 100 followers Colleen! I got giddy when I saw I had 8! LOL

  12. Wow - this is a tough one but I think St Anthony!! I love the apron... I could make great use of it. Congrats on your first give-away!!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Oh I can't tell you how many times I've gone to drool over the Softie saints and talked myself out of buying anything because I don't really need them. (And because I can't decide on fewer than ten that I HAVE to have.) But I suppose if I had to choose one I'd pick Saint Sophia for my pretty girl who will be turning two in March.

    That apron is almost too pretty to wear as an apron!

    With free Starbucks from my sister, not sure I need the DD cert, though. (I have to confess, I like DD coffee almost as much as Starbuck.)

  16. What a great assortment!! Woo-hoo. Excellent Giveaway Colleen!! I have not seen the Saint Softies before, but then I'm not an Etsy shopper either...yet.
    I'm going with dear St. Gianna. Both Lily and I hold her near and dear and I'm leaning on her a lot these days!

    Can't wait for the results. Either way, thanks for the fun giveaway Colleen!

  22. Hi I just stumbled on your blog from another one that you follow. I saw your picture of the Madona of the Streets and had to check you out lol. What a cool giveaway, I would have to pick St. Dominic, for our little Dominic. Of course then I would have to go back and buy St. anne, St. James the Greater, St. Anthony of Padua, St. Andrew, and St. Teresa of Avalia for the rest of the clan and a Mary one for our Regina!!! Can't wait to email my friends about that etsy shop!!! And looking forward to reading your blog and getting to know you through it. jmbrown528@clearwire.net

  25. The apron!!! I would love to have a new apron! I'm sorry to hear her husband passed away, though. :(

    ReplyDelete
  26. I would love to win!! I ♥ that apron. So glad that you're helping her out too. It seems that she had a flood of sales, b/c her site went down shortly after the requests went out to help. :)

    Have a great day!

  27. That's the most adorable apron I've ever seen! And the softies are just too sweet...we would choose St. Joan d'Arc as my daughter Laura just took her name in Confirmation last year!
    I am now off to blog about this so that I can come back and enter a second time with a link to the post! THANKS COLLEEN!!!!

  31. We would love to win the St. Josemaria! He is an awesome
    saint and the softie is very cute!

    We don't have a Dunkin Donuts near by, but that isn't a problem! We can always use it when we visit Chicago next!

    Your blog is too cute btw!

  32. I love this idea and love the Softie Saints! I have to go with St. Michael the Archangel for boys too! What a fabulous idea!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I love the saintly softies. I don't know how to choose one...I guess I would want the Saint Owen for my Owen (even though that is not who he is named for it would be fun to teach about saints using one that has the same name!)
    I love love love dunkin donuts!

  34. Wow,those Saints are pretty neat looking. We really love the patroness of the unborn, Our Lady of Guadalupe. Congratulations on 2 years of blogging. Thanks for the fun give away.

  37. love the guardian angel! What a great giveaway! thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I don't know if what I wrote last time was really my entry, cause I didn't really put much. But If I was the proud winner of the softie I would want the Little Flower (...maybe for a special reason....)!

    The Apron is really cute, but if you win it does it require you cook something?!?!

  39. I love the dear little Saint Joshua and the apron is amazing!!!! There are few things in this world that make me happier than a DD vanilla chai (sooo much better than Starbucks!)!!!! thanks for offering such a great giveaway.

  42. Oh, I can't wait to have babies and buy lots of the softie saints for them! If I were to win I would probably get Saint Therese of Lisieux, although Saint Dymphna would be a close second.

    The aprons are cute, too!

  43. I think I forgot to enter again after I posted. Again, going with St. Gianna!!

  46. I found you through Sarah's blog - what a great giveway and amazing blog! :)

    I love that Etsy shop, too - the saints are all sooo cute! I'd have to pick St. Mary Magdalen though b/c she is my daughter's patron saint. :)

  47. I'm not sure if the giveaway is closed but I wanted to chime in.
    I would have to select St. George since we most likely will be naming our new blessing (due in May) a version of George.
