WOW!! ...I Really Won!!

I enter giveaways all the time. I never really win. Not till now that is because I finally won! Back in June I won The Mystery Box giveaway at Pinch That Penny 'Till It Screams! This was a great surprise for me. I am one of those people that never win anything. So, I finally won. But I didn't even know what it was that I won. It was a mystery box... Let me tell you, my hubby got a good laugh out of that... When you entered the giveaway you had to leave a comment about what you would like to see in the mystery box. I am a cook book collector, so of course that is what I would have liked to see in it. I never would have guessed that was really what was in the box. To my surprise the day it arrived I opened it up to find not one, but three cookbooks and two sets of colored index cards to write my favorite recipes down. That was so great. Heather at Pinch That Penny 'Till It Screams! was trying to give her readers what they wanted! Now don't get to excited about my winning. I was only one of eight people to enter. So, I had a 1 in 8 chance of winning.

I enter only giveaways that I think I really would like. If the giveaway is something I would probably not use I don't enter. What is the point of winning a set of baby bottles or a breast feeding cover up when I don't need those any more? Someone else could use them way more than I could.

Well, winning my first giveaway gave me great confidence. I entered many more after that on many different blogs. And don't you know I won again. I won the Piece of the Puzzle Affirmative Jewelry Giveaway! I was so excited I swear my heart stopped beating for a few seconds there. I did enter, but did I really expect to win?.. NO! ..So, you can imagine my excitement now. When it came in the mail I could not believe how nice it was.

So, I will continue to enter giveaways and I recommend everyone else to enter also. I have entered giveaways on many different sites, but so far my luck seems to be with Heather! Visit her and try your luck. She has some awesome giveaways going on. You can even get tips on getting fee stuff, finding good deals, and getting great coupons on her blog.

Anyways, Thanks Again Heather! I am just paying it forward!
