Giveaway - Vera Bradley Slippers

Welcome to my very first giveaway! You could be the winner of a brand new pair of Vera Bradley Mod Floral Blue Slippers, Size M (7-8). They come in a matching zippered pouch.



I thought this would be a great item to give away, since I live in the same city as the Vera Bradley headquarters.


I might throw in an extra goody or two along with the slippers. That part will be a surprise!


Rules:
1. Leave a comment on this post telling me something interesting about yourself.
2. Leave your email address so that I can contact you if you win!
To keep from getting overloaded with spam, format your email like this: username(at)internetprovider(dot)com. I promise I won't email you unless you're the winner. If you don't leave an email address, you will be disqualified.
3. This giveaway is limited to participants in the United States and Canada only.
4. Duplicate entries will be deleted.
5. All entries must be received by noon eastern time on Saturday, November 1st. A randomly picked winner will be announced on Sunday, November 2nd.

Take a look around my blog, too. You might see something here you're interested in. There's a little bit of everything: stamping/scrapbooking projects, book reviews, recipes, etc. Enjoy, and good luck! Check back again in the next day or two, and I might be giving something else away...

Lisa said...

When I was younger, I wouldn't eat cheese. I would drink milk, but I wouldn't eat cheese. Now, I eat cheese. It's great with wine and bread. But now I don't really drink milk. I'm not sure if that's unusual, but I will also say that I think it's strange that I'm anticipating the surprise more than the slippers!
