It's Giveaway Time!!

The giveaway is now closed.  Good luck to everyone who entered!  I will be announcing the winners on Wednesday, February 22nd.


I recently passed 1,500 likes on my facebook page, and as a thank you to all of my fans for being so supportive, i wanted to have this giveaway!  When I first started decorating cookies a year and a half ago I never thought that it would become such a huge part of my life.  I have met many wonderful people who share my love of baking and I am so happy to have come to know each and every one of them. 

I started my facebook page at the end of the summer as a way for my family and friends to see the creations I had been making. I never imagined that a little over 6 months later i would be sharing my photos with over 1,500 of you and in the process turning my passion for cookie decorating into a cookie business!  As a way of saying thank you for being so sweet I've put together not one, but two prize packages...so there are going to be two winners this time around!

I also want to thank those people who first inspired me to begin cookie decorating: Annie of Annie's Eats, Callye of The Sweet Adventures Of Sugarbelle, Maryanne of Cookie Artisan, Glory of Glorious Treats and Marian of Sweetopia.  Yours were the first pages that i ever came across when i started learning how to become a "cookier". I am forever grateful for the wonderful photos, tutorials and helpful tips that i have received from you whether it be from emails or your blog posts.  Thank you so much!

I am very excited to have some wonderful sponsors with this giveaway.  Foose Cookie Cutters, TheRedCooky, Peas and Thank You's, The Back Porch Shoppe, Bake A Box and The Littlebeane Boutique have all graciously donated some items!  And I'm going to be adding some items as well. 

Rules:

1) To enter, please become a follower of my facebook page or blog and leave a comment saying you have done so.

2) For one additional entry, please like one or more of my sponsors pages and thank them for donating items to this giveaway.  

Please include your email address in the comment so I will have a way to contact you if you are the winner.  Be sure to leave your comments on this post so i will be able to include you in the drawing.   

The giveaway ends on Monday, February 20th at midnight EST.  I'll be announcing the winning comments on Wednesday, February 22nd using random.org.  The first comment chosen will receive package #1, the second comment will receive package #2.  Only 2 entries per person and the same person cannot win both packages.  This giveaway is open to US Residents only.  

Good Luck!!!

Winner #1 will receive
The Coffee & Cookies Package!

1) A Copy of Coffee Scrumptious Drinks & Treats
