HUGE GIVEAWAY: Something for YOU plus a FRIEND (plus 3 other lucky winners!)

Oooooh, get ready for this. 
I have a really, really, HUGE giveaway to share today.  And it’s going to knock you right off your seat.  (so, are you holding on tight? ;) )  Especially if you have always wanted a new camera. 



Up for grabs is TWO (yes, you read that right), 2 Canon Rebel Cameras!! One for you and, well, one for your friend! (Remember how we did this a while ago?  It was way too exciting to not do again.)  If you win, you’ll receive this fabulous camera plus one more to give to your friend. You and a friend can learn together and start sharing pictures between the two of you.  And then start sharing tips and cool photo tricks.  So you may want to increase your odds by spreading the word and getting all those “friends” to sign up.


And, just because two winners just didn’t seem like enough, there are also THREE $100 cash gift cards for the lucky runner’s up.


All you have to do is “Like” the Facebook Pages of the bloggers who helped make this giveaway possible, using the links below.  (You really will like them – they are some great sites!!)  Then enter your information in the short form at the end of this post so we know how to contact you if you win! This form will serve as your entry – so be sure to complete it accurately.


Don’t know much about the Canon Rebel? Read all about this awesome camera HERE.

 It’s also the first DSLR camera I owned and was the only one I used on my blog until about a year ago.  (And I still use it as my back-up……you know, when I drop my bigger camera on the concrete and need something to use while the other one is in the shop. Yes, it happened. Eeek!)  The Canon Rebel does so much.  And takes some beautiful pictures. 


Anyway, 2 fancy little cameras are up are ready to be given away.  And yes, 3 $100 gift cards.

I know, I know, you’re worried about your chances. But for something as big as this, it’s worth a shot, right? :)



This giveaway will close midnight on 8/29, so hurry it up!  ENTER!  (Must be a resident of U.S. or Canada to enter.)


 GIVEAWAY CLOSED!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    awww, i was really excited when i read this but then realized it was only for people who lived in america and canada, what a shame, i live in the uk. nevermind, good luck to all you lucky americans and canadians. hmm….maybe i can find a deal as good as this somewhere else on the net.

      Ashley says:

      I know, I’m so sorry! We had to limit it to U.S. and Canada because trying to ship a prize this size would require huge gift taxes and fees, almost as much as the prize itself. I really hope we can find a way to include more countries next time, but yes, I totally agree……kind of a bummer!

    Facebook stopped me from entering thru this blog so I had to like the last 4 blogs directly from Facebook. I hope I’m still eligible.

      Ashley says:

      Hmmmm, I wonder if it’s because I was applying some updates with the text and may have messed up the form. I refreshed the facebook form and hopefully no one else will have any problems. If you were able to fill out the entry form, you should be just fine.

      Thanks for letting me know,

    This giveaway is amazing!! I liked all of the pages above, but for some reason it was not showing that I liked 3 of them. Thanks for offering this. I would be so blessed if I win! Good luck to everyone!

    • 5.1
      Ashley says:

      Can you tell me which ones? Maybe it’s an error on our end. Hmmmm…

      • 5.1.1
        Erin says:

        Skip to my Lou, Make It and Love It, and Modge Podge rocks. It kept saying please enter the words shown when I tried to log in, so I ended up liking them from my own page, but it wasn’t showing up on your site that I liked them.

          Ashley says:

          Will you refresh your page and see if it works now? I re-entered those forms… maybe that’s all it was. Are those three showing that you “like” them from my page now?

          Anyone else having troubles????


          • Christine says:

            I had to go to each FB page separately to like them, I got an error message when I tried to like directly from this page. But… worth it to enter!! I love, love, love Canon Rebel. I would love to have one and share one :-)

          • Erin says:

            Yay, It worked that time. I was able to like their page directly from your website! Thanks!

    I need clarification. One entry, per person. If I entered via another post (Pick Your Plum) can I do one entry for the other blogs that are participating? Or does one really mean one? Don’t want to cancel myself out, or cheat. Cheaters never prosper! =)

    • 8.1
      Ashley says:

      Yes, only one entry. If you filled out another form on someone else’s blog, any other forms filled out just won’t count. You won’t be disqualified…….but only one entry per person will be submitted. SO no worries!

    I so need a camera for my blogging. I only have my camera phone right now. Unfortunately my camera broke. Then my laptop got hurt. Not sure who I would give the other camera to. Might give it to my husband because we love to double up pictures. But most likely I will give it to my son’s school.

    Emily Jensen says:

    Hi. I have a quick question. I “liked” everything, then entered to win. When I went to share the giveaway on FB, I noticed I was logged in as my 11 year old son. I came back here and “liked” everything as me, but I didnt re-enter, as I didnt want to enter twice or “cheat” Do the likes have to come before the entry, or will my entry still be good since I liked things under my email afterward? Thanks (does this make any sense at all)

    Emily says:

    I tried “liking” all these. Then every single time I clicked a like it asked for me to log into facebook. Then around the end it came up with a message something to the effect of “write the words seen in the box”. So I went straight to facebook and like all of these. But then I couldn’t see how to complete the entry as there was not a “submit” button anywhere or a place to save my name and email to. Am I doing something wrong? Please help! This would be an awesome giveaway to win!

    I’m a little heart broken! I don’t (and refuse) to have a Facebook account so I can’t go and “like” these sites. I feel like when I was a kid and couldn’t enter giveaways because I was under 18. No hard feelings though, rules are rules.

    Ah well, congrats to the winner anyway!

      I don’t have an FB account either (and also refuse to have one, as well). It’s a little frustrating to have something like this linked to a site (FB, that is) that I have no interest in.

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway!!!

    I had to like the pages on the right side of the list directly on FB because it stopped accepting my password every time I like a page. I hope it still counts.

  129. 129

    I had already liked most of those pages on facebook already. The last four I had to like directly from Facebook. I kept getting a message to “enter the letters shown”. LOL None were showing…so I went directly to their facebook page, and liked the two I had not already liked earlier.
    Thank you

    This is so awesome and how I need this and one to share with my friend, co-conspirator and most importantly my sewing instructor. My friend, Joan, taught me to sew and what a monster she created. I think my fabric stash equals or exceeds hers after just a few years. Anyhow, she moved to Michigan and I would love to share pictures, questions, answers and completed projects with her. I really hope I win!

    Crocheted Flower Headband by Heather B.

    I can’t even tell you how excited I am about being here on Ucreate! I feel like royalty. Kari asked me to share a little about me and my shop. So here goes. I learned to crochet when I was little. My mom has AMAZING patience and took the time to teach me. I was terrible. Later on when I was pregnant with my first baby I decided to pick it back up and try a blanket (scary!) for my new little one. I was greatly improved and fell instantly in LOVE with crochet! Through the years I have started making my own patterns and some (ok about a million) gifts for people I love. Finally opened my Etsy shop Made by Heather B, and here I am now!

    I love to share my talent with others and I love introducing people to the art of crochet. I always feel that we should use our talents to help others. I came up with the idea that I could make beanies for people that may need them to do a little to give back. It is one of the few things I can do from home with three small kiddos running around and makes me feel like I am doing something to give back. I love my family, I love helping others, and I love crochet! On to the tutorial . . . .

    Medium Width Crocheted Headband with Flower

    Materials needed:

    Size F (3.75mm) crochet hook
    3 oz Worsted Weight yarn
    Blunt yarn needle (tapestry needle)
    1 – 5/8 or 7/8 button
    Thread for sewing the button on.

    Ss: slip stitch
    Sc: single crochet
    Hdc: half double crochet
    Dc: double crochet
    Htc: Half triple crochet

    This item is made to fit the individual; therefore there no EXACT numbers are given.
    Chain LOOSLY until the chain measures about 1 inch short of the length around your head UNSTRETCHED.
    Row 1: Hdc in second chain from hook and in each chain across.

    In last chain work 6 dc in the SAME chain.

    Row 2: (you will now be working in the free loops of the foundation chain) Hdc in each stitch across. Work 3 hdc in the 3rd stitch of the 6 hdc cluster. Work another 3 hdc in the 4th stitch of the 6 hdc cluster.

    Row 3: hdc in each stitch across. Chain 5 loosely and connect with a ss to the 5th stitch of the 6 hdc cluster at the beginning of row 2 forming a loop for the button. DO NOT FASTEN OFF.


    *Chain 2 skip one stitch and ss in the next stitch* continue around the entire headband till the 1st chain of the button loop. Fasten off leaving a long tail to weave in.

    Weave in the Tails of yarn with the blunt tip needle.
    Sew on the button to the end of the headband OPPOSITE the button loop.
    Make flower.


    Make a slip knot.
    Chain 2

    Base: work 10 sc in second chain from hook.

    Join with a slip stitch in top of first sc.

    Round 1: chain 3, skip one stitch of the base round, ss in next stitch, repeat around (5 chain 3 spaces)

    Round 2: working around the first chain 3 section, ss, sc, hdc, 3-dc, hdc, sc, ss (all in first chain 3 section creating the first petal. Repeat for the remaining four petals. Join with a ss at the end of the round.

    Round 3: chain 5, ss in the stitch BETWEEN two petals. Repeat 4 more times joining with a slip stitch.

    Round 4: working the same way as the first row of petals in round 2. ss, sc, hdc, dc, 3-htc, dc, hdc, sc, ss in each of the five chain 5 sections. Tie off.

    Weave in the tail of yarn coming from the center of the flower using your blunt large eyed needle. Cut off excess.

    Using the blunt needle again with the remaining yarn tail of the flower secure flower to the headband, being careful to avoid the main band, and not pulling tightly. This will allow the flower to maintain its shape and slide along the band for positioning.

    I would be beyond grateful.


    You are finished! Now enjoy making a bunch of these for family and friends.

    PLEASE: Do not copy this pattern. I take a lot of time to make, write, and test these patterns. Feel free to make as many headbands as you would like, and give them away but please don’t sell them. Thank you and Enjoy!

    sonia says:

    It’s unbelievable. For the past 3 months, I have been so depressed after losing my boyfriend to another girl. Out of complete and total desperation, I contacted many spell casters who promised powerful magic or black magic. None of them worked and none were as wonderful as Dr Emmauel He is definitely different from the others and I felt immediate hope and strength from hearing about the promises that i will see the result in three days time which came to past. Dr.Emmauel is the most powerful spell caster. His spells worked wonderful and I am now back with my boyfriend. Work with him on this email address and you will get the best result:@

    What a beautiful and wonderful testimony some time things you don’t believe can just happen.
    My name is Mrs Leisha from U.S.A am 25 years old i got married at the age of 23 i have only one child and i was living happily .After one year of my marriage my husband behavior became so strange and i don’t really understand what was going on, he packed out of the house to another woman i love him so much that i never dream’s of losing him, i try my possible best to make sure that my husband get back to me but all to no avail i cry and i cry seeking for help i discussed it with my best friend and she promise to help me he told me of a man called I CAN DO he is a very great man and a real man that can be trusted and there is nothing concerning love issues he cannot do that is why they call him I CAN DO. I contacted his email address at (ICANDOSHRINETEMLE@GMAIL.COM) And i told him everything that happen all he told me is that i should not worry that all my problems will be solved immediately. He told me what to do to get my husband back and i did, he said after 3days my husband will come back to me and start begging, it really happen i was very surprise and very, very happy our relationship was now very tight and we both live happily again.
    So my advice for you now is to contact this same email address (ICANDOSHRINETEMPLE@GMAIL.COM) if you are in any kind of situation concerning love issues and any other things that give you problems.

    *You have reached a Place where you can have a fast acting Love Spell cast
    by a real spell caster within 24 Hours!*

    If you want a very experienced *real authentic White Witch* to cast a
    powerful Spell for love for you, then you’ve come to the right place. An
    experienced Witch will have a wide knowledge of Magic Spells and how to
    cast them for the best results. An experienced Witch will know which Love
    Spell will suit your specific situation and be happy and confident to cast
    for you.

    Whatever your current love situation I’m sure I can help. I am expert at

    attention from someone special and gaining back an ex. I can cast a Reunite
    Spell, Soul Mate Spell, Complex Case Love Spells or any other Love Spell
    you may need.

    Casting Magic Love Spells and making love potions has been going on for
    centuries. We all want to love and be loved so it is understandable to do
    everything in ones power to make this happen.

    But the course of true love seldom runs smoothly and no
    matter how we try finding someone special and keeping them loving, faithful
    and committed can have its problems. That’s where a Love Spell comes in. If
    you have done everything within your power it might be time to place your
    trust in casting a Love Spell.

    help with your current love situation. I am very experienced at casting
    Love Spells with great results.

    This is rick. I’m the one whose fiancee left a week before our wedding to be with another man. I was desperate to get her back when I found you. Dr ogogoro I tried 4 other people to do a spell to get her back and nothing worked. I was still alone and out thousands of dollars. Then I found you and everything changed. 2 weeks after you did the spell she called and started texting me again. A day after that we got together for coffee. A few days later we were dating again. That was a few months ago. Last week she moved back in and the wedding is back on. I just can’t thank you enough Dr ogogro! You are the best. You brought my soul mate, my best friend and the love of my life back to me. I am eternally grateful to you!DR ogogoro of
