A Giveaway!

In Other Words, I'm Very Glad You Stopped By


I have recently passed the 100 follower mark! Hip hip hooray! And I thought a giveaway was in order.

What I'm Giving:

An Emma cover of one of the songs that makes you happiest. I will post it up as a song sketch, link to your blog (if you have on) and send you a beautiful and artistic copy of it in the mail (as well as a couple other originals on it for good measure).

How You Win:

Be a follower (either Bloglovin' or Google) and leave a comment with the three songs that make you the happiest. Not necessarily your favorite three songs (if your favorite songs are tragic or morbid), the three songs that make you happiest.

You can get extra entries several ways and please leave a new comment every time (you can either repeat those three songs or pick three others that also make you happy).

-If you follow me on Twitter
-If you tweet about the giveaway
-If you blog about it (this really should be worth two extra entries, I think)

I'll chose by random.org and pick one of the three songs in the winning comment.

Best luck and thank you for entering! The giveaway will be open until February 2, Groundhog Day. Unless the groundhog sees his shadow and then the giveaway will be open for six more weeks.

Just kidding.
