Ear Warmer Giveaway!

First of all, I'm a guest blogger at the ever-awesome Sloanbook today talking about gallery walls. Check it out!

When I first ventured into blogland, I didn't understand how or why giveaways were so abundant. I was skeptical about entering any, quite sure that I would never win (actually, I still haven't--what a bummer). But one miraculous day (or over several days) my eyes were opened as I heard about friends and fellow blog-readers actually winning things via blog giveaways! How cool is that (I thought to myself)? I realize there are often ulterior motives to these giveaways--to endorse a product, to gain readership, etc. However, it seems such a fun way to reach these sneaky goals that I had to join.

With that said, I am happy to announce my first Made on Main giveaway! Pictured below, you will find two lovely winter-friendly ear warmers that I will happily give out in the next three days to a US resident. The purple ear warmer is a basketweave knit, and very comfortable and flexible (meaning it fits lots of heads). I love the deep fall hues of the yarn. The off-white/natural ear warmer has a pattern of two cables running the whole length, and clasps with a simple wooden button. It's a bit more rigid than the purple gal, but it is lined with fleece inside so it will keep ears warm on the coldest of days. Tr├Ęs naturel chic, oui?



So here's the skinny. I'm going to be honest and admit I'm doing this giveaway to gain readers. I get a good share of hits on this blog but I'm just not feeling a lot of commitment here, and we all know how women need long-term commitment. So if you'd like to be considered for this giveaway:

(1) Become a public follower of Made on Main
(2) Comment on this post, with an e-mail to contact you, to tell me which ear warmer you'd rather win (and why if you wish).
(2.5) For an extra entry, read my guest post on Sloanbook and any other fun DIY guest posts she's had recently and tell me which one you'd most like to do.
(3) Cross your fingers and hope for the best!

I'll select two winners via the Random.org number generator and post their names on Monday, November 14th. I hope to see lots of entries!

If you enter them here & there you'll get something eventually :) Also I usually enter the smaller ones less than 100 entries otherwise I feel like it is a waste of time to enter the huge ones. Also, you know my email! & I'd like the purple one bc I'm super pale & I think it'd look better on me haha.

  8. In this season where I only wear black and brown the purple one would be a great way to add some color to my life!

    As for her guest posts I'd love to see you translate the 'painting straight lines' tutorial onto something that can be used on walls you don't own. aka for those of us who rent and can't pait our walls. :)

  15. Okay I found your blog from Ashley's and I'm super excited about it! so that obviously means that I read your guest post over there (I need to start being more creative and maybe put up a gallery wall before I have a little one) and as of *now* I follow your blog :) I like the tan one because it goes with more of my outfits... hee hee.

  19. I don't want either. I live in Florida & I'd rather let someone who needs them win them.
    I just wanted to point out that you used 2.5 and your other quirky funny adorable comments are things I say...
    So I just wanted to tell you that you're not alone :)
    & I plan to stay loyal and check your blog regularly.
