A Second First - My First Giveaway!

Monday, May 3, 2010



That's right, Chattafabulous is hosting its first Giveaway!!






Imagine my surprise when I got an email from Eileen at CSN Stores who approached me about doing a giveaway on my blog for a $40 gift certificate to one of their many online stores.   My excitement is exceeded only by the shock I am feeling about being selected to host this giveaway!


Some of their websites include All Barstools, which (obviously) has bar furniture from tons of great manufacturers (like Knoll & Howard Miller) and All Modern, which has any just about any kind of modern furnishing or accessory you could need to slick up your space!


So, here's how it will all go down:


First, you must sign up for the giveaway.  If you are already a Chattafabulous follower, (Mom), you are already entered.  If you are not following Chattafabulous, please sign up to do so and your name goes in the hat!


If you are a follower AND you leave a comment, your name goes in the hat twice!  Double the chance of winning!


Finally, if  you are a blogger and you put a link in your blog to my blog (Chattafabulous), your name goes in the hat yet again! In case you lost count, that's 3 times your name will go in my hat! (send me an email when you've done this so I know to add your name again to the giveaway.)


Contest ends May 14.  Winner will be selected by the super scientific "name out of the hat" method with the assistance of my 11-year old daughter. The winner will receive an email from CSN Stores that contains the $40 gift certificate.


So yes, the message here is I am willing to buy your love. Ha!  Now here are some cool pics of my picks from these websites ...

So, go out there and have yourself a marvelous Monday!  And don't forget to sign up for the first Chattafabulous giveaway!!!

Your first is gorgeous! I hope she had a magical evening. My first is just a couple of years behind you. It's going way too fast. Okay, crossing my fingers, now.... xx P&H

You know I am already a follower. CSN is doing a lot of giveaways lately. Maybe they will come to me, too some day. I have bought quite a few things from them and have won a giveaway by them, but have not received the items yet.
