Yes! Another blog giveaway to help you a little bit with your holiday entertaining. I tend to over-shop whenever someone is having a catalog/home show party and I have some surplus Tastefully Simple items. In the spirit of giving, I will give them away to one of my awesome readers!

The winner will receive (new and sealed, of course!) one 11.5 oz jar of Tastefully Simple Prickly Pear Cooler mix and one 11 oz. jar of Creamy Caramel Sauce. Use the Prickly Pear Cooler mix with sparkling or still water, or use it as a base for a Prickly Pear martini (recipe on the can). I don't think I have to tell you all of the things you can use caramel sauce for!

The deadline to enter is November 27th by midnight EST. The winner will be picked randomly and notified by email. This giveaway is open to anyone in the continental US only.

To enter, just comment with something you like about my blog, or would like to see me write about in the future. You don't need to be a blogger to enter, just provide a valid email address in your comment so I can get ahold of you if you win. The last two giveaways I've had, the first "winner" didn't have any way for me to contact them! If you have a private profile and you don't include your email in your comment, I can't reach you! Just type your email something like this in your comment: QueenMotherBlog{at}gmail(dot)com & you're golden.

Want three extra entries?
1. You can post about my giveaway on your blog and leave the link in a comment. Though I would love a fancy write-up, a quick link on one of your posts will do!
2. Subscribe to my feed and post a comment letting me know.
3. Follow my blog and post a separate comment letting me know.

Just post separate comments for each entry, as I will be using a random number generator to choose a winner from the comments.

Happy entrying!

just write whats on your mind- everyone has different moods and different days, its nice to see how people cope with things, and nice to see there are real people out there that are not perfect- they burn food, they get tired..they are human! mrs.mommyyatgmaildotcom
