Fall Carnival of Prizes

It's a Blog Carnival going on right now.

Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival Button



Anyone who knows me knows I LOVE a contest. I just love to win things, don’t you? Well, I also love to give things away, and so do a lot of other bloggers out there. Hence, the Bloggy Giveaways Carnival was born. You can click on over there to enter lots and lots of contests this week, if you’d like.

My prize this week is all about little girls. If you don't have a little girl, then maybe you have a niece or a granddaughter or a friend to give it to. Or maybe you are just a little girl at heart and you will enjoy it!



Fist we have the pocket paper dolls princess, which is a great little set of paper dolls. This is perfect for quiet play time, and will keep a little girl happy while she uses her imagination.

Also, the Wishing Stars Book, with instructions and paper to fold 100 tiny stars.


It's fun to make these little stars of all different colors, and even boys would think it was fun!

This prize package may include other things, such as chocolate, but there's no guarantee on that.

Would you like to enter? Just leave me a comment on this post. I'd like to know what you are doing to celebrate Halloween. Are you dressing up? Throwing a party? Going trick-or-treating with the kids? I will be doing all of those things!

We'll draw one winner from all the entries on Saturday, November 1st. Good luck!
And if you'd like to enter my other contest for a great Christmas CD, you can go here. Have fun!

We already had a Halloween slumber party for our girls which was so much fun. We also visited a pumpkin patch to pick out our own pumpkins and this Friday I will be making a homemade Halloween dinner (meatloaf with ghost mashed potatoes and veggies found the idea on Marthastewart.com) and then we will be going trick or treating. :)

Shannon said...

not sure if this is for Canadians but will give it a try.

I use to dress up with the boys as a witch until i took out my fake witches teeth and didn't realize that when i was handing out candy i accidently gave some poor child my teeth with their candy.
It wasn;t until hours later i realized what i must have done.
So this year when i take my daughter out i will not be wearing any fake teeth!

Christy said...

We sit in the dark and watch scary movies! No kids ever come by our home - so we just have a scare fest of our own.

Our family doesn't really participate in Halloween, so we will just be having a quiet evening at home, but we do love Klutz books of all kinds. I can't begin to count how many we own, but we don't own either of these. Thanks so much for the giveaway!

What nice prizes! The paper dolls especially would be awesome for quiet time!

We went trick-or-treating this year, of course! But aside from that and a church party, we didn't do much else this year. Mommy's feeling worn out, unfortunately! But we did do several Halloween-themed crafts, which was fun for all of us.
