Big Old Giveaway


Well, I promised it, and now, I am finally getting my act together and doing it… that’s right, my 1K/BEA giveaway!! Phase one is already underway on Twitter, and you can find it right here! Now, get ready for Phase 2!!!

There are going to be TWO giveaways with FOUR total winners. The first one will be US Only, because shipping. The second will be International, because I love you guys too much not to 😉

AND because I am bored with the usual giveaway shenanigans, we’re going to play a GAME. Don’t worry, you don’t have to play the game, but if you do, and get the answer right, you get a boatload of entries so… yeah. Plus, it’s fun! So first, the game, since you will need it if you want to play.


Find the junk. It’s all numerical, so add up the numbers. I enlisted a few friends to help, so you may be finding answers on their sites! (Don’t worry, I made it easy!) Enter the number in the Rafflecopter. Easy peasy! I will leave hints in spoiler tags!

    I will be doing this later. AND OH JUST USE MY AGE HUH? 😛 Bleh.

  2. Not gonna lie, this was like the MOST FUN giveaway I’ve ever joined. There was also the side effect of finding like so many wonderful blogs in the game, so I ended up spending such a long time just clicking around. Also my maths is sincerely bad, so I hope I managed to add it up right. (I’m now thinking of all the awkward numbers I have hidden around my site and just glad that you chose a relatively innocuous and also incredibly helpful one.) Loads of fun, thanks so much for the giveaway, and CONGRATULATIONS ON 1K!

    • Aww THANK YOU!! I am so glad you found blogs too! That makes me extra happy 🙂 And don’t worry about the math, I am not good at math, so I won’t be hyper-critical 😉 You are quite welcome, thanks again, and thanks for helping with the game 😀

  3. WOW WOW WOW ! Yeah three wows!
    -WOW! Congratulations on 1000 Bloglovin’ followers!!! Awesome.
    -WOW! Your BEA haul is so *jaw drops; lost my voice*
    -WOW! I loved playing the game!! Hahaha, hope I got it rightttt <3 <3

  4. I want you to know that I despise math…mostly cause I can barely count but I must love you to still be playing this fun game you came up with…or I really want your copy of the accident season!! ? congrats lovely this is so fun!!

  5. Loved the game! I tried really hard not to be distracted once I was on people’s blogs, so I think I’ll go back and look around them now that I’m done the game! Thanks for the giveaway Shannon!
