To celebrate Christmas and more than 150 posts on my blog I'm holding a contest.
There's three easy steps to enter your name in the draw and stand a chance to win one of five unique prizes from South Africa:
(1) Twitter about, or link a blogpost, to the competition (on a voluntary basis only - as long as you complete steps 2 & 3, you'll still be entered in the draw),
(2) Browse through the "Blog Topics" in the sidebar to the right, and
(3) List your favourite individual post (not topic) in the comments section below (otherwise your name won't be entered in the draw).
The winners will be drawn on 27th December 2009 and their names posted on this blog on 31st December 2009. Please note that by entering the competition you're agreeing to provide me with your postal address (which will be kept confidential) so that I can mail the winners their prize. I'll contact the winners privately after their names are drawn, and list links to their blogs when the competition results are announced on 31st December 2009.
The draw will be conducted by my husband Beric, assisted by Theodora the Cat (see left, sitting on my desk). All names in the comments section as at 08h00 27/12/2009, South African time, will be thrown into Theodora's (clean) food bowl and randomly selected by Beric.
The prizes are:
First Prize: Viva Afrika beaded salad servers (right). The ethnic beadwork is crafted by the women of the Ndebele tribe of Mpumalanga province. All the handmade beadwork is unique in design and colour, and the servers are silver-plated.
Second Prize: Hand beaded tray net made by the rural Zulu tribe in Kwa-Zulu Natal (left).
Third Prize: An adorable fluffy Leo, King of the Jungle, key ring (right). (Theodora the Cat insisted on including this prize!)
Fourth Prize: A beaded doll key-ring crafted by the Ndebele tribe (left).
Fifth Prize: A ball point pen in a beaded cover crafted by the Zulu tribe (left).
The next blog post will be on 31st December 2009 to announce the competition winners and provide a schedule of upcoming blog posts for 2010.
Remember to link the competition to your blog and leave your comment to be entered into the prize draw.
