Favourite Things Friday: Giveaways

They are sick that surfeit with too much, as they that starve with nothing. –William Shakespeare

I super l♥ve giveaways! The blogging community is so generous! {Not to mention clever at turning their 'trash' into someone else's 'treasure.'} I've had quite a bit of luck in the winning-other-people's-giveaways department. And I've done a couple of fun giveaways myself.

Right now, the Fall into Fall giveaway extravaganza is going on. Click on the cute little scarecrow to be taken to a directory of 151 bloggers {including eight business blogs} who are currently hosting giveaways!

I debated back and forth whether or not I'd like to participate. I love giveaways, but I only had a semi-OK idea of what to do for my own give away. Nothing really brilliant was coming to mind. Entries for participation were due on Wednesday. I waited until the very last minute, but decided that even if my prize wasn't out-of-this world, it would still be fun to participate. So, I sent my little e-mail off. Unfortunatley, I found out yesterday that the cyber gnomes had diverted it and I'm not officially participating :cry:. Too bad, because this morning I had a brilliant idea to improve my first giveaway and a great idea for a second giveaway. So I've decided go rogue and do a my own giveaway thing. I've put each giveaway in a separate post {hey, it's my giveaway and I'll be anal organized if I want to :lol:} and am making this post the directory, because giveaways are one of my favourite things :biggrin:.

You're in giveaway mode arent you E! This is a fabulous idea for a FTF post.

Giveaways are almost everyone's favourite thing and you've been so generous with yours.

Hey, this is almost my post! Giveaways are my favorite, too but I didn't procrastinate and made it in. (hehe, did you bristle when the "mom" sentence came at you?)

I'm off to see your great giveaways now, hope on over and enter mine, if it appeals, and have a good weekend.
