My first one! I am so psyched that I finally managed to create two adorable minis for my first ever blog giveaway. :) Celebrating reaching 100 followers (+ 9) and to thank everyone for following along since I started this little ole blog about 2 years ago. Your blogs have been such an amazing source of inspiration and creativity, I love following all of your mini escapades as well.
This being my first contest please forgive me if I don't get everything quite right, live and learn I guess. :) So feel free to send me a message if might have screwed something up in the contest rules. I'm always up for help. I'll keep the rules real simple so I can keep all my marbles together. So here they are:
1. Leave a comment on this post. Yep, that's it. Just leave a comment on this giveaway announcement post stating that you wish to be entered into this contest, and at the end of the contest I'll print off the comments page, and cut each name with comment into those tiny strips of paper. My girls and I will put them all in a box, and I'll have them do the picking. :) They love that sort of thing!
2. There are 2 minis up for giveaway. Each one is in 1:12 scale. One is an Easter bread prep board. We make these, for real, each Easter, and I <3 making them in miniature. And the other is "Easter Dreams" with a spring checkerboard cake (I was inspired by the new Wilton cake pan I saw in the craft store last week), an Easter basket, eggs, and a bag of jellybeans. The first two names we pluck from the box will win, the first name/comment drawn will receive the "Easter Dreams" mini, the second name/comment drawn will receive the Easter egg bread prep board. Once we have our winners I will post it all on the blog (with pics of the drawing) and the winners can email me their mailing info so we can ship the minis out asap.
3. The contest deadline to leave a comment on this post is two weeks from now, Wednesday, March 20th, at 6 p.m. E.S.T. in the U.S. That way that should give me enough time to ship them out so the winners can receive their pieces in time for Easter. :)
It's that easy. (I think) Did I cover everything? Rules? Deadline? How to win? Send me an email if I forgot an important detail.
And now, for the pics - (click on the photo to supersize).
"Easter Dreams" - this prize will go to the first name drawn from the box.
This mini includes one Easter checkerboard cake topped with yellow and pink roses, seated on a yellow cake stand; one Easter basket filled with Easter eggs, 1 wrapped chocolate bunny and 1 wrapped chocolate egg (see closeup pic below for detail of the chocolate egg and bunny without the wrapping); one slice on checkerboard cake with a scoop of melting chocolate chip ice cream; one plate of colored Easter eggs; and one teeny bag of jellybeans. All items are glued to the wooden circle.
Closeup of the unwrapped chocolate bunny and chocolate egg - bow color and the piping color of the wrapped bunny and egg varies from this one.
Next, for the second name drawn we have the Easter egg bread prep board:
This mini features a mini rolling pin sitting atop a mound of floured dough; one box of flour; one blue bowl filled with dough and raw eggs and a mixing spoon handle; one cracked egg on the board; several colored eggs and regular eggs lying about; and one freshly baked Easter egg bread. All items are glued to the board.
Thanks again for following! Good luck to all contestants! Spread the word, a contest is finally afoot at Micro Munchies! :D
