Wow, I must be tired. As I write this it is Tuesday evening; I’ve been baking and wrapping gifts today and when I looked over the little I’d typed above I had two silly mistakes – totally wrong words, not simply misspells. I was almost giving someone a “give card”.  🙂

Okay, back to the fun stuff.

I prefer online shopping when I need a quick gift but love the feeling of shopping in a brick and mortar store. Feels more personal buying gifts as well as supporting small businesses.

MICHELLE!

Congratulations, Michelle! I will get this sent to you after I receive your reply to my email.

So, that’s it, folks! It’s been a year already. The giveaways have been fun for me, and I hope you enjoyed them, too. Did you have a favourite?

Now I must go do some kitchen cleanup, then get some sleep so I can be ready to continue my Christmas baking.

Do you do much baking for the holidays? 

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!  🙂

My bookmark is usually whatever is handy at the time–grocery store bill, used envelope, movie or concert ticket–clearly I need to up my game. And I never turn down the corner of a page.

HEATHER!

Congratulations, Heather! I will get this into the mail to you as soon as I can this week. We have some stormy weather coming tonight and tomorrow.

To everyone  interested in my giveaways, I’ve been watching for and setting aside fun things that, in some way, have to do with reading and/or writing.  The DECEMBER giveaway will be posted  as soon as I settle on what special thing to give away during Christmas month.  Stay tuned!

I decided that after I mail Heather’s bookmark to her, because only four people entered the draw and I have enough of these bookmarks, each of you will be receiving one. 

My 11th giveaway of 2016; your chance to win a novelty item for readers!

November is half done, the 16th is my birthday, and I realized I still haven’t offered anything to you for my November giveaway.  So, here it is, a unique and different item for readers of “real” books.

Have you ever seen a book butterfly? Well, this one is a wind-up book butterfly!

wind-up-book-butterfly-1wind-up-book-butterfly-2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How cool is that! 

wind-up-book-butterfly-3

You twist the front wings 30-40 times and set it inside your book. When you open your book … out flutters the butterfly! I got Dad to have the fun of testing one out tonight (it’s my week with him) and it really works! So fun. He enjoyed the surprise of it more than once.

This would make a wonderful gift for someone – if you decide not to keep it for yourself. Whatever you decide, you have to enter to win! If you won one of my giveaways don’t let that stop you from entering again.

I am offering this giveaway to my readers anywhere in the world.

To enter the draw, please leave a comment on this post telling me if you have a special bookmark you prefer to use. I will use Random.org name picker to find out which of you is the winner. Watch here the morning after the draw for the announcement, and don’t forget to check your email. This could be yours!

Draw date for this giveaway is at 10 PM AST, that’s 9 PM Eastern, on Tuesday, November 29. This gives you less than two weeks to enter and to pass the word on to others, too. I will post the winner’s name on November 30.

Remember, you have until November 29 to get your name into the draw, but don’t put it off! Enter now!

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings! :)

I agree with you that finding a pen is a problem at times. …  I am using jack Miner pot(cup size broken) to keep at my desk. Also I have one note books which has a place for a pen on one side as long as it is not too fat.

My 4th giveaway of 2016; your chance to win!

Are you ready for another giveaway?

In keeping with writing and reading, this month I am offering something handy and a little different.

I thought you might like to have this lovely blue ink pen – blue pen with blue ink. The unique thing about this keepsake pen is that you can insert a small photo in the top of it. Cool, huh? You twist the writing point out because of that feature.

This pen also has a clip back so you can clip it onto a page of stationery or a shirt pocket to make it harder to lose.

If you want to enter the draw for a chance to win this keepsake photo pen, leave a comment telling me if you devised a clever way to not lose your pens, or if you are like me and often have to search whenever you need one.

Draw date for this giveaway is at 10 PM AST, that’s 9 PM Eastern, on  Wednesday, April 13. This gives you lots of time to pass the word on to others, too. 

I will use Random.org name picker to find out which of you is the winner. Watch here the next morning for the announcement, and don’t forget to check your email. These could be yours!

Remember, you have until April 13 to get your name into the draw, but don’t put it off!

PS: I have been trying to find things easy to mail so that I can send them anywhere. I was told at the post office that to mail overseas it’s much easier to send something that is paper, otherwise postage leaps in price – as in doubles! – even if it’s the same weight. Seems a little ridiculous to me, but that’s their rule – not mine.  Because of that, I am very sorry that I can offer this item only to my readers in Canada and the United States.

I AM WILLING AND ABLE TO SEND THIS ITEM ANYWHERE. (CHECKED AT POST OFFICE AND FOUND AN ACCEPTABLE RATE FOR THIS.)

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!  🙂
