Earth Day Giveaway

Earth Day is coming up this Thursday, and I thought this would be a great time to giveaway a set of {reusable} cloth napkins and a perfect way to say THANK YOU to those who read my blog(s)!

This one of the favorite sets I have made and are perfect for Summer.  (If you live south of the equator and happen to win, you can use them in a few more months ;)  I am giving away one set of four napkins that measure [approximately] 15x15 inches.  {A $16 value} Also, I am offering free shipping on the cloth napkins that are in my shop.

Here are the rules
1.  The giveaway is running April 19-Midnight (EST) April 22, 2010.
2.  The giveaway is open to those who live inside and outside the United States.
3.  However, since this is meant to say THANK YOU to my blog readers, you do have to subscribe* to one of my blogs to be eligible.
4. I will use a random number generator to determine who the winner is.  I will post the winner here Friday and you will have until Midnight Sunday to get back to me with your mailing address. got that, Cinderella? If I don't hear from the first winner by then, I will select another winner.
5.  Finally, here is how YOU can enter. (ONE COMMENT ONLY PER PERSON)

  15. I'm following you :) and for Earth day we are having a big planting party! We thought we could use some help and also have a cook out!

  16. I'm following, of course! Earth Day is a special day since I work at a transportation authority. "Dump the Pump" is something special we do on this day to encourage people to ride a bus-- just for the day-- to save gas money & stop polluting the air!

    By the way, I absolutely LOVE your shop!! I hearted it & will keep checking back!

  33. I'm a follower. :) For Earth Day, I will call my dad to wish him a happy birthday and water the tomato plant on my patio that he planted for me this past weekend. Not too exciting, but about all I can pull off at the apartment.

  34. I am a follower on your other blog, thank you. I really don't have anything great planned for earth day. I kind of wished that I did. Maybe I will stay home and not use gas or power for the day. ambrerose(!at)

  35. I didnt know you had two blogs! What a treat! I absolutely LOVE everything you are doing with shopping locally and promoting earth day!! I bought a book in the charity my bf and i volunteer at on sunday about Reusing and Recycling EVERYTHING! For crafts and all of the above... so I am making my housemates go through it and choose things they could do. They understand and have been very good dealing with the eco warrior ive turned into and accepted the changes in the shopping habbits. Im trying to convert 2 more people for the good of the earth!
    Happy earth day
