Yang is preparing lots of stuff for you to win!

This week I added a little extra to the game. I have hidden pictures of our cute and fluffy friends in some of the items in my store. Extra entries to anyone who emails me which items they are hiding in. I will be moving the pics around all week so check back often. My email is addknitter @gmail.com without the space of course.

Ok, so same rules this week, drawing will be done for all entries posted by midnight on Friday, August 26, 2011. Tell me what your fave item is or tell me what you would do with your fave item. You could also post what items you would like to see in my shop that are missing. As before each item purchased from my etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/6catsknittingaround  will get 2 extra entries for each item you purchase from my shop during this time. Also 2 extra entries for each social media you share the blog and/or contest to. If you share it on Ravelry earburn me, I am addknitter00 (also 2 extra entries to anyone who friends me on Ravelry). If you share it via facebook, twitter, or plurk just come back and post another comment for each time that you did so. 5 extra entries for anyone who subscribes to my blog. Good luck & let the games begin!

It’s my Birthday Month!!! I’m 40 but you get the presents…

This is my birthday month and while I don’t mind too much about turning 40, I thought it was really funny when we found some suckers in Party City that say “40 SUCKS!” I decided that I’m going to do something positive to celebrate my birthday.

So, what we are going to do is give away some prizes from my Etsy shop each week for 4 weeks. http://www.etsy.com/shop/6catsknittingaround   Some of this will spill over to September, but who doesn’t love celebrating their birthday for an entire month? The prize drawings will be done by random number generator each Friday starting on 8/19/11 and ending on 9/9/11.

How you enter for the first drawing is to go to my etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/6catsknittingaround and find something that you really like, then come back to the blog and post a comment telling me what that item is. You also will get 2 extra entries for each item you purchase from my shop during this time.

I am running a sale from 8/1 through 9/9/11 for 15% off if you enter coupon code: 40sucks at checkout.

What can you win? I will post new prizes and a new drawing each week so make sure and check back to see if you won and to enter for the next week. Each week will be a new drawing so come back and enter all 4.

For the first drawing, which will take place 8/19/11 these are the prizes:
