Aloha Friday #30

May 2, 2008

Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing heavy or too thought-provoking.

If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

Today’s question is:

Did you participate in the Bloggy Giveaway Carnival? If so, did you win anything?

I was lucky enough to have won something I really wanted . . . a Tutu from Kennedy Grace’s Etsy store owned by our very own Cathi of The Way I See It . . . Lately, Baby Bug has gotten into dressing up in costumes with skirts so I really wanted her to have a tutu of her very own. I can’t wait for it to arrive! Thanks Cathi!

Aloha for stopping by Richelle F, Suzanne Bastien, Crazy Daisy, Jen, Mel, Sher :), Christine, Anne, Kelleythejewelrylady, Witchypoo, Audra Marie, Kelly @ Pass the Torch, Jen @ JenuineJen, Jennifer in OR, Cathi, Dee, Tami lewis, Deb - Mom of 3 Girls, Qtpies7, Stampedwithgrace, Terri Sue, Jennifer S, Jendi, Spice, Laura, Diana/sunshine, Krista, Grace, Rach (Heart of Rachel), and Summer

I participated… a LOT and I didn’t win anything. This is the third time I’ve played and have only won one thing. I’m thinking it’s a waste of time (and a lot of spam mail from people who require you to join their “mailing list”) so I probably won’t participate again. Although I’ll be tempted… :)

I participated, but didnt win anything. However, I found a great group of new blogs I like to check-in with! So, I feel like it was time very well spent! And who knows, maybe I’ll win something during the next carnival. :)

I did participate and I won the one giveaway I wanted the most. Edi at Exotic Eating Experiment ( gave away a copy of the FIeld Guide to Produce and I can’t wait for it to arrive.

I only entered the giveaways for blog’s I read regularly though and didn’t give anything away myself this time around. Life has been hectic around our house lately.

I posted my own question here:

I’ll think about participating today, but I’m kind of busy to be thinking up a question, lol.

I won several things, including a tutu! I don’t know what I am most excited about, though, the Luna Pads or the sweet pomegranant pucker organic candy! Trinity is excited about the tutu.

I participated by hosting 2 giveaways. Believe it or not I have been so busy sewing that I only got around to entering a few of the giveaways. I didn’t win anything however I truly believe it’s more fun to give than to get. I had fun giving and your welcome Kailani, giving to you is a pleasure.

I was put off that a lot of giveaways (even coupons for merch) were restricted to the US. I sent the fabulous print I gave away to the US from Canada. It costs only a small amount more.
Didn’t win anything myself though.

I really wanted to participate this year, but I had just had my BlogAnniversaryGiveaways.
In the past I haven’t missed a one. They are so much fun.

I’ve won your burp cloth and bib set, and from Diary of 1 I won a gardening book.
