April 2009 Giveaway



For the next two weeks (starting at 12:00 am April 8 and ending at 11:59 pm on April 22), I'll be running a giveaway. Two prizes will be awarded; each winner will receive a 2 lb. assortment of handmade chocolates. Here is a picture of one of the prizes. Assortment includes: hand dipped truffles (including plain, Bailey's, Grand Marnier, and Kahlua flavors), haystacks, turtles, chocolate covered cashews, and peanut butter cups.

Here's how you can win:

Prize 1: Just leave me a comment in this post! While I encourage you to post other comments on my blog, I will only be selecting the winner from those within this post. I will randomly draw one comment to be the winner!

Prize 2: Using Statcounter's "Came From" statistics, I will award the owner of the blog or website that generates the most visits to my blog during the contest period with the prize!

Sorry, based on postage and freshness issues, this giveaway is only open to those willing to have their prize shipped in the US. Obviously, I can't get the prize to you unless I have some method of contacting you (keep this in mind if you are an anonymous poster). I will announce the winners on April 23.

Thanks for visiting my blog! I hope you find something good to make.
