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!

How cool is that!

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! :)

My 8th giveaway of 2016; your chance to win … a BOOK!

Yes, okay, this time I gave away the surprise in my subject line. I just couldn’t help myself.  🙂

My August giveaway is this book:

A Room of One's Own

A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hadn’t yet read any of Virginia Woolf’s work, so when I found this book in a secondhand shop I had to buy it. As you have figured out, this is not a new copy but it’s in very good condition, nothing wrong with it.
If you want the chance to win this classic book, please leave a comment telling me if you have read any of the author’s work before.
Even if you already won something in an earlier draw, please feel free to enter again. I am offering this giveaway to my readers anywhere in the world!
I will use an automated name picker to find out which of you is the winner; therefore, repeat winners are by chance and fairly selected. 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 Wednesday, AUGUST 17. This gives you time to pass the word on to others, too. I will post the winner’s name on AUGUST 18.

My 7th Giveaway of 2016; your chance to win!

I am much later than I had hoped to offer another giveaway. The good news is that next month’s will be something special and you’ll have more time to enter the draw. This month it is something handy and the draw is not far off.

In my shopping around and looking for items to give away, I have to bear in mind the cost of mailing these things to you. Therefore, what I offer is not big items; regardless, I do hope they are things you can use. This month it is more than one item in my giveaway, but all go together to one winner.

Take a look:

giveaway #7It’s a black zip bag, plastic, a sort of very large pencil case that is big enough to easily hold 8.5″x 12″ paper. It’ll be handy to store your writing things in or carry them around. It would also hold a manuscript.

With it I’m including a note pad for jotting down your story ideas (for example), and a package of brightly coloured sticky tag notes. Perhaps you can use them as bookmarks, or to mark certain passages of your notes so you can find them when you want to make changes or double-check your work.

Here are more images of the same things.

giveaway #7.4giveaway #7.5giveaway #7.6

 

 

 

The quote on the bag is by Gandhi, “You must be the change you want to see in the world.” The bag has a mesh back so you can identify what you put in there.

giveaway #7.2giveaway #7.3giveaway #7.7

 

 

 

Now for the details.

If you want the chance to win this zip bag and its contents, please leave a comment telling me how you usually keep track of your reading or writing supplies OR what use would you have for this bag? Even if you already won something in an earlier draw, please feel free to enter again. 

I am offering this giveaway to my readers in Canada and the United States. If you live outside those countries and you know someone in either of those countries who will keep it for you should you win, please feel free to enter. Just give me the Canada or US address if you do win.

I will use Random.org name picker to find out which of you is the winner; therefore, repeat winners are by chance and fairly selected. 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 Wednesday, JULY 13. This gives you less than ten days to pass the word on to others, too. I will post the winner’s name on JULY 14.

My 6th giveaway of 2016; your chance to win!

Late, but here it is … my giveaway for June!

This time I have something for you that’s handy – something in which you can carry your books and writing supplies.  And it’s attractive, too.

Of course, you can use it for carrying other things as well, but in keeping with my main focus I’m thinking about reading and writing.

Here are the dimensions of this bag – height, width, depth:

I like bags like this; it’s made of a type of nylon fabric and has a white interior. From this one I’m sure you can even be inspired to write something fun and thoughtful if you take a good look at the butterflies and daisies decorating it.

With two handles, it’s sturdy and easy to carry. Sorry I didn’t get a better image of the handles, but you can see they are securely stitched on.
