Some blogging friends and I had gotten into the winter slumps. Not really sick or anything – just dreary and generally “blah”. So we decided to celebrate spring by putting together a Spring Fling Giveaway!

So without further ado – here’s the giveaway. Please do support all these amazing ladies who partnered with me to chip in on this prize.
Click through to Amazon and tell me in the comments what you would buy if you won. There! Your first entry…just click the green button in the rafflecopter widget below to claim it and open up extra entry opportunities.
No compensation was received for this giveaway. The gift card was purchased by the participating bloggers personally. Amazon has no affiliation. Giveaway is open to U.S. residents only. Void where prohibited.

For $150, Krieg jig pocket hole, power tools, dehydrator, pasta maker. But I could use the money to fund a counter top dishwasher. I hate hand washing while facing the wall, and no window to look outside. That’s why my kitchen is so small and feeling obtuse. Where’s the fun in that?
Gail Vance says
Wow…so much on my wishlist. I think the next thing to get would be a good grain mill. I have heard that homemade bread from freshly milled flour is the BEST.
Tabitha P. says
