Aloha Friday #30

May 2, 2008 by  
Filed under aloha friday

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!

    I’m glad you won something you really want. Hope you get it soon.

    No, I wasn’t able to participate in it. It must have been fun.

    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.

    Congrats on winning the Tutu!

    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.

    Many thanks for getting some time to discuss this, I feel strongly about it and adore understanding much more with this topic. If doable, as you acquire expertise, can you mind updating your blog with far more info? It’s extremely helpful to me
