An Entire Week of Giveaways!!!

Okay, so I have BIG news that I'm really excited to share!

As you know I am a member of the TOS Homeschool Crew and have been reviewing homeschool products since September. I have been SO blessed to be a part of this team and to receive SO many products for review. So far, I have received more than 25 products! Can you believe it?! It's been a real blessing.

Plus, I really enjoy sharing my opinions with you. One of the hardest parts about purchasing things to use for our homeschool is that there really aren't any "homeschool stores"...at least not in my neighborhood. I purchase practically everything online and have no way to physically thumb through the product before I purchase it. So I really appreciate finding reviews of a product that I am interested in written by another homeschool mom. This helps me to decide if the product will be a fit for our family. The biggest plus about the TOS Crew for YOU is that you don't have to just rely on my opinion. I'm not the only one reviewing these products. So if you see a product that I've reviewed here that you're interested in, just click over to the TOS Crew blog and find up to 100 other reviews on the same product!

So...here's where I need to admit a little problem. It seems that I have not adequately spaced my reviews very well. You see, I currently have 13 reviews that need to be written...during the month of December. SO I have decided to have a little fun.

Starting next Monday, December 8th I will be hosting SEVEN DAYS of reviews AND GIVEAWAYS!!! That's right, every day next week I will post a new review and a new giveaway!!! All you have to do to enter is stop by my blog, read my review, and leave a comment. Each day you do this you will be entered into the giveaway for that day. Leave a comment each day and you will be entered into all seven giveaways!

Also, if you grab my "7 Reviews/7 Giveaways" button from my sidebar and paste it on your sidebar, you will automatically be entered into each giveaway 2 times...that's in addition to the daily entries by commenting! So please grab the button...no seriously, please grab the button...it took me 2 hours to figure out how to make it and I will really be jumping for joy when I see it on your blog! Don't forget to leave me a comment to let me know that the button is on your blog so that I can enter you into all the giveaways.

I hope you win!

  1. What a cool idea! I totally want to steal it! Is that terrible?

    I have wanted to figure that grab-a-button feature out for ages.....wanna share your new-found knowledge?

    Well, you know I don't need to be listed in the giveaways, but I will gladly post your button!

  2. Shanna-
    Exciting! I've got your button already posted on my blog! I'll be passing the word around about your contests...and hoping I get picked to win something too :)
    You should post how you made your button too...very neat!

  3. Yeah, I'm totally intimidated by adding things to my sidebar. I haven't seen an easy "click here to add to sidebar" link (unlike the aptly named "add entry"...)

    So, I'll go do a little research and just for you and your 2 hours of work (which I'm sure left you in a GREAT mood) I'll try to figure out the ol' sidebar!!

  4. i posted the button on my homeschooling blog

  5. I posted your giveaway button on my blog! I just stumbled upon your blog for the first time and look forward to visiting again. I'm anxious to read your reviews!


  6. Thanks, I've posted your button to my blog at:
    http://8eichs.blogspot.com/ So glad to hear you are enjoying Jotham's Journey, we are doing Tabitha's Travels this year and my kids love it, they have been asking to do candles and I said I didn't have an advent wreath! So thanks for giving me permission to use what I have!!!

  7. Woderful idea! I'm new to all of this and haven't even taken my kids out of PS yet but am planning on not sending them back after Christmas break! I can use all the help I can get.

  8. I added your button to my blog--good luck with all those reviews!

  9. I added your button to my blog,
    I really enjoyed your inferiority post! That's how I feel, just trying to post once a day sometimes takes me way too long!
    these giveaways are awesome, I hope I win one!

  10. I posted to my blog and put your button on my sidebar.

    I'm also on the TOS crew. I thought it would be fun to win something I was not selected to review, but so far it looks like I might have everything you are giving away (from my own receiving it to review).
