*link love* giveaway

"The love we give away is the only love we keep." - Elbert Hubbard


In honor of Valentine's Day, which is exactly one month away, I'm happy to announce another giveaway! Whoohoo!

Every blogger knows what a compliment it is to have someone link to you....ahhh, to feel appreciated! So, to participate in this contest I ask that you do two things:

1) Link (on your own blog) to someone/anyone! whose site makes you happy. If you feel like it, why not go ahead and dedicate a post to that person and their work? **if you don't have a blog, feel free to skip this part...but at least try sending good thoughts telepathically**

2) Put your name in the pot by leaving a comment on this post.

Two winners will be drawn at random on January 21 and will be sent "care packages" complete with one of the handmade valentine magnets you see above.

Now, go on! Share the love.

What a nice idea! And your Give-Away is MUCH nicer than some of the Valentine stuff that's already appearing in the stores.

I'm already linked to you through Bloglines, but now I'll add you to my Blog as well ;))

Sequana said...

I don't have a blog either, but I line to more than 300 blogs with Bloglines. Sometimes I'll comment on one and talk about a post on another. I do what I can. *S*

Suzanne -- the magnets are wonderful. So unique! Of course I'll mention you on my blog -- I check your's everyday to see what's new.

Bonny, Sequana and Karen- Thanks so much for entering the giveaway and thank you for wanting to mention my blog! However, PLEASE feel free to give the love to anyone you want...not just me :)

Love this contest! And, I so heart those magnets. They're beauteous.

Christeen said...

What a great idea for a contest- your heart magnets are lovely :) And I love Elbert Hubbard! I grew up in East Aurora, where he founded the Roycroft. What a cool place. You're maybe the second person I've ever seem quote him or mention him! :)

Funny you should have this contest because I'd already made a post with a link to your blog:

Good art makes me happy!

But, inspired by you, tomorrow, I'll post about another site that makes me happy.

I don't have any links on my blog. I am a new blogger. I think it's a good idea to link some people. There are so many artists out there whom I admire. Thanks.

I've just put up a link to Planet Ham (http://planetham.blogspot.com/). I think you'll like his blog too. :)

Thanks so much for visiting me! Please don't feel obligated to come by often; my life/blog is pretty boring.

I will absolutely find room for more links on my bloglinks today.
Love the yummy hearts.
Happy Valentine!

I'd LOVE to join your giveaway! Infact I'd already thought that on valentines day I'd post a link of LOTS of my favourite blogs ... you'll surely be included!

Nel said...

What a lovely idea, see how you are doing your part to inspire the rest of us? Thanks so much! Now to go do links...send the love around.

Joan Y said...

Ooooo, I love this! Suzanne, you are an inspiration and what a perfect gesture to start the new year and celebrate Valentine's Day! You make me smile ... and I'm already linked to you! Ok, I'm off to find another blogger that makes me happy ... Cheers!!! :)
