I do! I have been blogging for 15 months now and have won over 40 giveaways. I just love getting the gifts in the mail. Early on I would do posts every time I won something. Then as I grew and started following more people I suddenly didn't find the time. I want to apologize if anyone was hurt by me not posting what I won on their blog. I have several favorites who I have won from several times. I do have a list of each item but started just writing down the gift and not the blog I received it from. I have won at least a dozen books, note cards, cookbooks, picnic deluxe cooler, laundry detergent, earrings, coasters, postcards, pictures, lotions, cereal, mugs, coupons, books on CD and a Zibits robot just to name a few.

So I received 3 gifts while I was away so I thought I would give them some recognition. This first one was a set of greeting cards from Teresa @ Grammy Girlfriend. If you know me you know that I love mailing out cards. I became her 1000 follower between her two blogs.

This next one is from Mara @ Weighty Matters. We have been blog friends for a long time now and this package came all the way from the Netherlands! I got goodies like licorice, a tea bag holder and little Dutch wooden shoes. (my daughter is trying to claim these from me) Got some interesting post cards, toast sprinkles, a bar of soap, a cheese slicer, umbrella and a sweet note included. I love it all. Thank you Mara. {{HUG}}

After this the post is a mess. I just could not get this stuff to line up

This I won from Trisha @ Looking for Blue Sky. Aren't they just the cutest notes!

This I won from Kat @ Reviews from the Heart. I have won several books from her. You should head on over and enter her book giveaways. This one just arrived yesterday , I can't wait to read it!

I won this books from Alexis @ Running Away? I'll Help You Pack. I think I have won the most contests from her. This one is also in the mail. You should go over and enter some, you can't win if you don't enter.

Also I have won several giveaways from Blueviolet @ A nut in a Nutshell so you should check her blog out also.

My friend Brandy@ You Don't Know has giveaways each weekend.

Contests do take time and I don't enter as many as I use to but generally it's the first contest that is the hardest. After that they get to be pretty easy.

Here are a few posts I did in the past #1 and #2 , these will give you the names of others that I have entered and not listed in this post.

P.S. I know that there are people I have left off this list. If you frequently have giveaways on your blog and I have won one of your contests please let me know so I can add you to the list. (I am 58 and the memory, which was never good to begin with, has left me blank) That is what I get for following to many blogs. Sorry :) I know the smile helps! Want a ~hug~ too!

I'm always intrigued by giveaways, but rarely have the time to go through all the stuff to enter. I do good just to read posts!

Hope that good luck stays with you! :)

wow, I've only won one give away, lol. I'm aiming high though, most of the give aways I enter are for DSLR cameras, software, or a new computer, lol. It can't hurt to try.

Thanks for the wonderful "shout outs" about my blog and the potential for so many winners. The best part, is hardly anyone enters to the likely hood of winning multiple times on my blog is easy!

I am blessed to have known you for so long and you truly have a heart of gold. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for your friendship, your love, and your encouraging comments and prayers.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

I don't enter giveaways unless I really really want the item being given because I tend to win! Looks like you're quite the winner, too!

Congrats on the loot! :)

It's always nice winning something, I do not enter as many as I use to, so obviously, I rarely win anything!
