A GREAT CSN GIVEAWAY!




If you follow my blog, you know that I will be going on a great happy passage in life ~ that being from mother to grandmother, with the birth of my first grandchild in February (see July 12th post.)

Will she be smart like her mom, with dark hair, a beautiful smile and a bubbly personality?  Or, will he be smart like dad, tall and athletic with a compassionate heart? 

I can rock her to sleep and then let Mom get up with her in the middle of the night.  I can read him a book and hand him over to Dad for a diaper change.  I am beside myself anticipating meeting this precious blessing.  For years I have dreamed about becoming a grandma and I know I will cherish every moment with this baby….loving, kissing, hugging, playing and laughing!

Since I’ve learned of this blessed event, I have been researching items for the baby.  And what perfect timing!  CSN Stores has offered another fabulous giveaway and I see lots of great baby items there, such as a crib that will be needed in the near future for our house!

Don’t be alarmed!  If you aren’t in the market for cribs, there are many great items for “modern bedding” to utilize the $65 gift certificate CSN is so generously giving one of you.  And if that is not what you are looking for, CSN Stores will kindly give you the $65 gift certificate for a product in any category you select, but the voucher does not include shipping charges.



Here are the rules:

1.  This giveaway is open only to U.S. and Canadian readers.

2.  You must be a follower of this blog by using Google Friend Connect.

3.  Leave a comment on this post telling me you are a follower.

4.  Search over the CSN site and tell me what product you would like or what category you would select from if you are the winner. 


Entries will be received through midnight, CST, Monday, September 27, 2010.


The winner will be picked by a random number generator on Tuesday, September 28, 2010.


Good luck and I hope you win!



Be sure to visit my friend, Linda’s blog, at My Kind of Cooking for her great recipes and cookbook giveaway!

Clements Family said...

Of course I follow you! My little two year old needs to move out of her crib and into a big girl bed...so new bedding for her would be PERFECT!!!
PS...ice blocking is where you get a big block of ice (from the grocery store or gas station), but a towel on the top and slide down a big hill! It is so fun!

The Sugar Queen said...

Congratulations Pam, on the arrival of your grandchild! How exciting!

If I were to win the gift card, I might buy a hand mixer. Mine is sort of cheap quality. Or I might go in a totally opposite direction and get a comforter for my bed. :)

I am now following you on Google! I would LOVE to win this gift card. I will hopefully be pregnant in the near future, so anything baby on that website would be a blessing for me and my husband; although seeing as I can't predict the sex of the future baby, we have my old crib so what I would love to use the gift card on is some bedding.

I think I am pretty much the last person in the free world to get a food processor. So, I think if I am the lucky winner, the gift card will go toward purchasing a nice Cuisinart food processor.
