Enter To Win 25 Handmade Heart Punchies for Scrapbooking (Seconds)! Ends 3/17/2014

As I am creating punchies (used for scrapbooking, card making, confetti, and so much more!) for sale on American Handmade's eBay store, I sometimes discover that I have made an imperfect cut or that the material I cut from had an imperfection. This can happen because my punch needs to be sharpened, because the paper or cardstock I am cutting from is wrinkled or damaged, because I accidentally cut too close to the edge of my paper or cardstock, or for many other reasons.

Now, my loss can be your gain!

Beginning today, you can enter to win a set of 25 handmade heart punchies for free! These punchies measure approximately 1" from top to bottom and 1" from side to side. Some of them were punched from cardstock while others were punched from other types of paper.



If you don't want to wait for this contest to be over, or if you prefer correctly punched hearts, be sure to check in with American Handmade and have a look around!

This giveaway starts today, 2/28/2014, and ends on Tuesday, 3/17/2014, at 12:00 a.m. CST.

To enter, simply fill out the Rafflecopter form on this page. Enter as many ways as you like! Some of the entries can be completed every day, giving you even more chance to win this prize. Entries will be verified.

While you're entering, be sure to have a look at the shops featured here and see if there's something you like. This set of punchies, for instance, is from American Handmade's eBay. Every item from American Handmade is guaranteed to be handcrafted in the USA (except for the crafting supplies). Have a look around!

This contest is open to residents of the USA only (unless you are willing to pay shipping & handling to your country).

The winner of this giveaway will be chosen randomly via Rafflecopter within 48 hours of the contest's end and will be posted on this site. The winner will also receive an e-mail and will have 48 hours to respond with his or her mailing address before a new winner is chosen.

Win Blackout (T.O.E. Trilogy, Book 2) by Alecia Stone!


Blackout (T.O.E. Trilogy, Book 2)
Release Date: March 19, 2014
Centrinian Publishing Ltd

Summary from Goodreads:
What was shall no longer be. Was was not shall now become.

Despite having the protection of the talisman and the Legion, a reforming force of warrior angels and elementals, guarding his every move, things are not looking good for Charlie Blake. Tasked with the responsibility of saving mankind, finding the four diamonds to restore the talisman is all he can think of, but when his prophetic visions start to invade his reality and he suddenly can’t distinguish the dream world from the real world, the pending extinction of mankind becomes the least of his problems. Everyone assumes Charlie’s dormant powers are activating, until he starts showing symptoms of a deadly disease.

With his nemesis, Gaddis, threatening the lives of his loved ones, he faces a race against time to locate Raphael’s Stone, the air diamond, before an imminent pandemic destroys civilization. As he ventures into dangerous lands once again, he unearths shocking revelations about his past life that forces him to question his allegiance. With no one to turn to for answers, he can’t help but wonder if his purpose is truly to save mankind.


Excerpt from Blackout:

Charlie’s eyes shifted back and forth between Derkein and the knife. Derkein had a look in his eyes he didn’t recognise. This wasn’t the man he had moved in with. He wasn’t the man who was soon to become his adoptive father. This was an impostor.

‘My father always said everything happened for a reason,’ Derkein said, ‘but he never met you. What good is immortality if I’m stuck in one place?’ He stopped and dropped his arm by his side, the knife slipping out of his grasp and landing with a clunking noise on the marble floor.

Charlie stopped, leaving a few inches between him and Derkein, who was standing with a guarded stance. Charlie couldn’t help but wonder who was more afraid of whom.

‘You’ve left me to rot in this god forsaken world for the rest of my life, so forgive me if I seem a tad ungrateful,’ Derkein went on in a flat tone. His blank expression left no room for interpretation. ‘If I have to rot in hell, I don’t see why I should have to suffer alone.’

Charlie didn’t see it coming. Derkein lunged at him, grabbed him by the arms, and thrust him backwards. Charlie waited for the collision of his back with the conservatory door, but the impact didn’t occur. Instead, he found himself falling and landing hard on his back in darkness. The only source of light came from the kitchen ahead of him where Derkein was standing.

‘Why do you look so surprised?’ Derkein asked. ‘What did you expect was going to happen when you resurrected me, or did I not deserve the common courtesy of a conscious thought? I’m not like you. I’m not like them. Tell me, Charlie. What am I, exactly?’

Charlie rose up into a sitting position. He didn’t have the answers Derkein was seeking. ‘I’m sorry.’ The words barely escaped his mouth.

‘Yeah. Me too.’ In the blink of an eye, Derkein and the kitchen vanished, leaving Charlie in complete darkness. He sat in the empty silence, waiting. It wasn’t until he heard his rapid breathing that he realised panic had overcome him. Charlie scampered to his feet and charged ahead of him, ramming into the hard, rough texture of a brick wall.

‘Derkein!’ he yelled, pounding the wall with his fists. ‘Derkein, please –’

‘Sol.’

Charlie felt a crawling sensation move down his spine as a shrill voice echoed around him. With his palms braced against the wall, he remained still as the voice slowly faded. He held his breath as silence invaded the space once again. When the voice didn’t return, he made a move to the right, running his hand over the wall as he searched for the door.

Within seconds, he felt a tingle of cold air on the back of his neck that made him jump, and he released his breath. He spun around, shifting his head left and right, but his eyes couldn’t penetrate the darkness that surrounded him.

He reached up towards his neck and froze. The rhythm of his heart accelerated as he moved his hand over his chest in search of the familiar touch of the two silver rings he had become so accustomed to over the past five years, but the chain wasn’t around his neck. Although he couldn’t see anything, he suddenly felt as though the darkness was closing in on him, compressing his lungs as if attempting to stifle him.

A spotlight appeared a few feet in front of him, and his heart stopped. He gulped down the lump forming in his throat as he stared at the figure submerged in the light, dangling about two feet off the ground.

Backyard Sports Baseball Game Giveaway (Ends 3/12/13)

Hello, and good morning! I thought I would create a quick giveaway for a PC game this morning, for no real reason at all. The game is called Backyard Sports Baseball, created by Atari, and was a Chick-fil-A kid's meal toy in 2011. This particular copy does not come with a case and has some damage. I haven't tested the CD, so I can't verify that it works, but hey, it's free to the winner!

This giveaway will run from 2/12/13 to 3/12/13. To enter, simply complete one or all of the Rafflecopter entries below. Good luck!
