Last week the good folks at CSN Stores in Boston gave me a shout and offered us a giveaway on this blog. Cool, eh?! I’ve been looking through their website and it’s full of treasures and lots of useful things like dining room chairs and binoculars.

The winner will receive a $35.00 gift certificate; a great way to get out of the “winter is coming” blues. Shopping therapy is under-rated. International shipping charges may apply for orders outside the US, fyi.

They even have baby furniture and shoes and weathervanes.  Have a look and see what you think.
Here's what you have to do to participate in the giveaway.

1. Join one of my blogs if you haven’t already and mention which blog you joined so I can find you. This is a homeschool and devotional blog. My writing blog is  

2. Comment on this post on this blog.

            Examples: Anything at all… or…
                           “I want to win!”

            And say: I joined the writing blog, or… 
                         I joined this blog.

3. Leave your email like so; thisisme(at)gmail(dot)com, so I can contact you when you win –or- private message me (Karen) on Facebook with your email. My Facebook profile link is in the sidebar here. The private message link is under my profile picture on Facebook.

4. Optional, sign up for my personal email list for a newsletter about homeschool or one about writing and the publishing industry. These will have occasional free short stories and writing tips, or recipes, homeschool management and teaching tips and the like.

             Example: homeschool newsletter – yes, or… 
                           writing newsletter – yes

5. That’s it!

Here’s what your comment will look like with whatever your choices are.

             I want to win!

             I joined the writing blog.

             My email is parent(at)gmail(dot)com

             I want the homeschool or writing newsletter.

We’ll put the commenters names in a hat and Molly will choose one. I’ll post who the winner is next week and CSN will send you a nifty gift certificate. Better than chocolate, well, maybe not as delicious as that, but fun, nonetheless!

Happy Wednesday!
