Win a $25 Shopping Spree

What would you say if I told you that on November 15, 2008 I would give you $25 to spend on my creations, that I'd mail them to you anywhere in the world for free, and I'd also feature you here on my blog; and all you had to do was to follow three simple little steps?

Introducing my first ever Blog Giveaway. It's as easy as 1 - 2 - 3

1 Visit one of my selling venues, (On Etsy: , or on iCraft: , or on Shop Handmade: ) take a look around, and decide how you would spend that $25 if you were the winner. You'll notice that $25 goes a long way in any of my shops!

2 Come back here, and add a comment to this post, with links to at least two items that you might get if you are the winner. I say "might" because you can change your mind at anytime and aren't obligated to use the winnings on what you mention.

3 Now here's the knew there would be a catch, didn't you? (this is afterall, a promotional tactic!) You need to promote my shop, or an item of mine three times before November 15 when the winner will be picked. This can be anywhere that you would like....Etsy, MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, Stylehive, ThisNext, your blog, or even by word-of-mouth....anywhere at all. Just send me an e-mail to coganscreations [@], or contact me through one the selling venues and let me know the details of the promoting. I'll match up the e-mails/contacts received with the comments left here...and those with both will be entered into the please, make sure I have a way to know who's comment goes with what e-mail (if names are different)

Now...just sit back and wait until November 15. The winner will be randomly selected from all entries recieved. I'll contact you if you win and we'll work out the details of using your $25, and getting the information for my blog feature. (You don't have to be a seller of hand-made to be featured)

This giveaway is open to anyone, anywhere who appreciates my work, or who appreciates handcrafted things, or to anyone who just likes winning free stuff. No purchase necessary to win (although purchases from me are always greatly appreciated!)
