My First Blog Giveaway

I love contests and giveaways and today Author Liz Adair lured me into her blog by offering a free book just for posting a comment about which ancestor's story I would like to tell and the name of the book I would like to win.

The 2nd part of the giveaway is to post my own giveaway on my blog.

These are the original giveaway rules from the original poster, (We will not be following them).
The item will be my choice made just for you!
Restrictions and Limitations:
1. I have complete creative freedom.
2. What I create will be just for you.
3. It will be done within the next 6 months.
4. You have no clue what it will be.

My Rules
1 The prize will be a boys neck tie size 4-7 (will fit boys age 2-5 or a small 6
You can choose any tie listed on my blog slide show, (provided I still have the fabric).
2 be one of the 1st 5 people to comment
All you have to do is comment on this post and tell me what your favorite book is and what your 1st and 2nd choice is for a tie.
If you are in my Ward I will deliver your tie ,to you at church, in the next couple of weeks, if not email me privately at with your mailing address.
If you are poster 6 and beyond your name will go into a drawing for a tie of your choice. I will post the winner on Wednesday Evening.
But--and here's the catch--if you have a blog, you have to post a giveaway on your blog. You can do like Lara and offer something home made and with a long lead time, or Liz and share a talent.
If you don't have a blog, go to and begin one. It's dead easy. If I can do it, anyone can.
However, if you don't have a blog, who is going to know that you didn't post a giveaway? I mean, are there blog police that go around and check? It doesn't matter to me. What matters is that people comment, because this is going to be sooooo embarrassing if no one responds.

My favorite book would have to be Guilty Pleasures from Laurell K Hamilton.
I like the Cars tie with Mator, and also the cars tie with Lightning Mcqueen!

Okay-I have WAY too many books to list a favorite; I will give you my latest favorite reading experience, and it was "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society." How can you not be curious about a title like that?! It's what drew me in, and I loved it. Your ties? You have talent! I like them all. But if you're going to make me pick two, I'd say the big star patriotic tie and then Mason LOVED the Spiderman tie. He wants to know if you have any Scooby Doo ties. They're great! I promise to do a give-away on my blog. My last give-away was in January, and I was planning to do one in June. Fun post!

Mason (4) made me come back to tell you LOVED the outer space tie best of all. His second favorites were spiderman and curious geroge. He is not a blogger, as it is not conducive to the cognitive level of a four-year old
His favorite books are the Curious George books.
Thanks for letting him play!

Great idea! I've always loved looking at your ties, just not enough spare income to play. My six year old loved the Curious George. Actually, all my boys did but they won't admit that in public. I read the book Jen mentioned. It's my favorite right now, as well. I haven't read anything since that.
