October's Monthly Giveaway

Sorry for the delay in getting this post ready. My family has been passing around a nasty bug and I have been busy taking care of the poor sickies. But, they're on the mend and so here is this month's giveaway!

I'm starting work on some colorful penguin hats that will be "ready to ship" and in most cases one of a kind as I'm using donated yarn and have a limited amount of each color. They will be in varying sizes (0-6mo, 6-12mo, 12mo-3y, 3-10y and preteen-adult) and will be listed throughout this month in our etsy shop. An example is shown below.


October's prize is your choice of  a "Ready to Ship" colorful penguin hat from our shop!

And since this is a Relay for Life blog, we're going to start using the mandatory entry as a chance to spread some awareness!

Here's how to enter (don't forget to include your email address!):
MANDATORY ENTRY: 
Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month your mission is to visit the American Cancer Society's Detailed Guide on Breast Cancer, click on any of the links and tell me something you learned. 

EXTRA ENTRIES: (Will only count if the mandatory entry is complete. Please leave a separate comment for each entry.)
1) Follow this blog publicly via GFC (+1 entry)
2) Follow us on twitter and leave your twitter name (+1 entry)
3) Leave a comment with your favorite item from our Etsy shop (+1 entry)
4) Tweet this giveaway and leave link (can be done once daily) (+1 entry daily)
5) Put our blog button on your blog and leave link (+5 entries)

I've recently found out that it is against Facebook policy to use "likes" as a way of entering giveaways. While we can't offer an entry for it, we'd still love to have you as a facebook fan. We post all our updates to the blog and shop on our facebook page. It's a great way to keep up with us!

THE FINE PRINT:
Open to residents of US and Canada. Closes 11:59pm PST on October 31, 2011. Random.org will be used to choose the winners who will be notified on November 1st via email. Winners will have 48 hours to respond to the email before another winner is chosen.

Thanks for playing!!!!

they estimate that in 2011 that about 230,480 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women. That is crazy!!!
