Natalie's Favorites....giveaway

So I've told you my favorite blogs, now I want to hear yours. I don't have a lot of time to "blog stalk" and I know I am missing out on a ton of great blogs out there. (I have discovered that if Lydia is napping, I can read blogs while nursing!)

I have put together a box full of my favorite things. I want the prizes to be a surprise to the winner so I won't post a photo of the contents. I will say that the winner will be receiving my favorite....magazine, drink, movie, candle, stationary, craft supplies, spa treatment, holiday decor, of course some of my handcrafted jewelry...and many more lovelies. I don't think I have ever had so much fun shopping. Buying someone else all of my favorite things. What a nice way to spend the afternoon.

Want to win? There are four chances to enter....


  • Just comment on this post telling me one of your favorite blogs and leaving a link. It could be your favorite cooking blog or your cousin Jenny's family blog. I don't care what it is, as long as you love to read it. Make sure to let the writer of that blog know that you posted about them!
  • For an additional entry, let me know in a separate comment that you are a natalie's sentiments follower/subscriber/google reader.
  • Let me know in a separate comment that you have blogged/tweeted/facebooked about this giveaway.
  • Let me know in a separate comment that you have added my new sidebar button to your sidebar. You can grab it over in my left hand sidebar.

  • That's it. I will announce the randomly selected winner on June 29th. Good luck.

    WOW What fun!

    I loved checking out your favorites. I have two related to cooking, and one related to crafting:

    Pioneer Woman & Bakerella for cooking; Mish Mash for crafting (specifically papercrafting/stamping)....

    I hope you find some fabulous blogs and enjoy those nursing times! :)

    I really enjoyed browsing your favorite blogs.
    I was trying to decide which of the many fabulous blogs I read to comment on and I just had to say Everything is Pink. This was one of the first blogs I discovered a year ago when I first started blogging and she has given me so much inspiration for crafts, events, blogging, and life.

    I did post about your giveaway.
    I noticed you mentioned the person that inspired your sidebar. I love your 'currently' sidebar and have thought about doing my own version of it. Would you mind?

    Since I live in Utah, all of the blogs done by Nie Nie and family have become almost as important to me as my close friends and family blogs.
    The first one to get me hooked on this family was Stephanie. I loved her outlook on life and the way she celebrated the ordinary. http://nieniedialogues.blogspot.com/
    After her horrible plane crash, her sister took over her blog and since then I have become hooked on her as well http://blog.cjanerun.com/
    You can't forget their brother, who recently retired his blog, but you can still check here and read his archives. He is Hilarious!

    I hope you enjoy!
