Tuesday Tip -- RAKs and Prizes

I have been very fortunate lately. I've won several great prizes and RAKs. For this Tuesday Tip, I'm going to share my secrets and Pay-It-Forward as well!


Tuesday Tip -- RAKs and Prizes


Increase your chances of winning by:


1. Following blogs. I am regularly updated by my "Blogger Dashboard" on all my blogs. It gives me a title, a picture, and a few lines from each blog. I click on the ones that interest me. I never miss a RAK by my favorite bloggers that way! Plus, I don't miss the announcement that I've won. I can't believe the number of times I've seen on a blog that someone won, but didn't claim the prize. The "Blogger Dashboard" is free and simple to use, but I'm sure there are others out there, too. You can follow just about any blog by copying and pasting the address into your dashboard, but some blogs (like mine) also have a "follow me" button for one-click service!


2. Join Fiskateers! I know most of you who come here regularly are from Fiskateers, but if you're not, you really need to join us! I know it's a little intimidating to have to send an email request to one of the 5 women who host the board, but it's not a big deal to join. It's just a way to protect their site. Fiskars and the Fiskateers are so generous! Come see what we're all about! http://www.fiskateers.com/





**And now, for my own RAK!**



I'm sending one lucky blog reader this package of items. (Sorry, due to postage, this whole package can only be sent to US or Canada blog readers. If you are from another country, I will still send you a small prize if you are the winner, but it will not include all the items shown.)


Prize includes:

6x6 Scalloped Chipboard Book by Colorbok (US and Canada only)
18 sheet Mini Paper Pad by Colorbok
Self-adhesive Rhinestones
Heidi Grace Flower Brads Orchard Collection (US and Canada only)
Heidi Grace Rub-ons (US and Canada only)



Here's how to win:

1 entry for commenting on this blog post. (limited to one comment/person)
1 more entry for "following" my blog publicly - make sure you tell me in your comment!!
1 more entry for sending someone else to my blog -- they must include your name in the comment section (so-and-so sent me)



You may enter anytime before Monday, March 9th at 7:00pm, Eastern Time Zone (US). Winner will be announced with next Tuesday's Tip. I reserve the right to "re-RAK" if the winner does not respond within 2 weeks of announcement.

Happy Scrapping!
