Susan Heim, author and “Chicken Soup For the Soul” editor, has giveaways

I’ve known about Susan Heim’s blog for several years.  I don’t even know for sure when (or where) I first found out about her blog.  But, I’m glad I did!  🙂  She always has some fun and interesting giveaways.  And, I’m pretty sure I’ve won more than one prize from them.  (Thanks, Susan and Rafflecopter.)

She currently has several giveaways that I’ve entered, as well as a few I’ve not yet entered. Here’s some of them:

One lucky winner will receive their choice of a personalized hoodie bear or sweater bear from Teddy Bears Personalized, hopefully just in time for Mother’s Day! Giveaway ends May 1, 2016 and is open to U.S. residents only.  Click here to go enter!

One lucky winner will receive three National Geographic children’s books and a pair of binoculars!  Giveaway ends April 26, 2016 and is open to U.S. residents only.  Click here to go enter!  (This giveaway is a part of a group of giveaways that several blogs are hosting.  You can find out more information when you click on the link to go enter.)

National Geo Prize Pack

Despite my mention of the giveaways, I hope you will look around Susan’s blog and let her know you found out about her through my blog, unless of course you already knew about her. 🙂  She is MUCH, much better at maintaining her blog than I am.  (Many bloggers are.  I’m simply a novice. 😀 )  On Saturdays, she has a giveaway ‘linky’ where you can link-up your own giveaways or others’ (who often give an extra entry or two if you take that step).  Oh, and the best thing about Susan?  She’s a sister-in-Christ!

Saturday Sweeps

As usual, there are soooo many giveaways and soooo little time!

I mentioned in my last Saturday Sweeps that I won two different things from the same blog, The IE Mommy.  Both prizes have already arrived!  🙂

Saturday Sweeps!

I’m not a giveaway queen, but I do enjoy entering giveaways from time to time.  I’m not sure if it’s considered a hobby, obsession, or addiction.

Recently, I won two different things from the same blog, The IE Mommy.  That should tell you something… usually fairly low entries on her blog.  (Hint, hint!)  😉clipart-contest-300x182

VeggieTales (and Larry Boy) are at it again!

Wow!  There are a lot of blogs giving away VeggieTales’ latest DVD, The League of Incredible Vegetables, featuring their very own “legendary” superhero Larry Boy and an ‘all-star’ cast of new superheroes.

The League of Incredible Vegetables

I first got excited about it when I saw the NewsBoys’ video.  I think NewsBoys do incredible music anyways… without doing a song about incredible vegetables!

Here’s the blogs that still have a giveaway for this DVD:

If you’ve never heard of VeggieTales, I encourage you to check them out!  They may seem like something that would only appeal to small children, but I assure you that they are full of lots of fun for older children and parents, too.

I was given no compensation for this post except extra entries in a couple of the giveaways.

Monday Mania

Enter to win a 4-pack of tickets to any Six Flags U.S. theme park.  (Sponsored in part by Discover Card’s “What Would You Do with $1 Million?” campaign.) …

Did you know that September is National Pet Health Insurance Month?  Neither did I.  Apparently, Kroger is a sponsor of this ‘event’ because several blogs are giving away a $20 Kroger gift card in conjunction with this promotion.  (They all end on 9/30, unless otherwise noted.)

And finally, what’s the newest ‘rage’ in little girls’ toys for this Christmas?  Teacup Piggies!  Go to these blogs and enter to win a Teacup Piggies Set…
