MY FIRST GIVEAWAY!!!!

Yes, you read that right...I'm hosting a GIVEAWAY!  And best of all, it's a giveaway of my handmade soaps. Awww, and you thought it was going to be the sheep! 


It's hard to believe that as of today, it's been a whole year (a whole year???) since I sat down at the computer to write out my first blog post, 'Tiptoeing Into the Blogosphere.'

Yep, that's me

I've enjoyed getting to meet so many new people, fun fellow bloggers, and of course I've loved your support with your comments on my ramblings. So, to celebrate you, my dear Cranberry Morning readers, I am hosting my very first giveway - five bars of my handcrafted soap.  You may have noticed this button (below) on my sidebar?  Click on it to view all my luscious soaps. Yeah, I suppose that does sound like bragging, doesn't it. But seriously, they're amazing!!




So what do you have to do to enter?? It's really quite easy.

1. Check out my handcrafted soaps on SoapnSuch. (That's where you'll be directed when you click on that pic link above. If for some reason it doesn't work, just go to http://www.soapnsuch.com)

2. Leave a comment on my Cranberry Morning blog, telling me which soap you think would be your Number 1 favorite. (Although I'll be sending the winner a surprise assortment.)


This giveaway ends at midnight February 2, and the winner will be chosen by random.org.  I will announce the winner on this blog, Cranberry Morning, on February 3.

Be sure to let all your friends know about this great giveaway! :-)
Sorry, Giveaway open to U.S. residents, only.

P.S. The winner will have three days after the announcement to notify me by e-mail with their mailing address.

I already know the answer to that questions: Raspberry Cheesecake!!!

Congratulations on 1 year, Judy! I, for one, am glad you started the blog... heck, I've taken many trips to England and I haven't even had to leave my living room!! Thanks for the hard work you put into your blog....it's appreciated!!

Happy Blogoversary! and cheers to many more.

The Chocolate Almond Delight sounds absolutely yummy!

Caution Flag said...

I am also so glad you are a blogger and that our paths crossed! What a joy you are :)

Your giveaway is lovely and I don't know if I could ever choose. Maybe the lemon? Maybe the lavender? Maybe the chocolate raspberry?

Johnnie said...

I want all of them. I just can't get down to one. Can't do it. Coffee, peppermint, patchouli, lavendar, lemon, vanilla... Come on, Judy.
Thank you for blogging. I love knowing you!

Michelle said...

I would LOVE to win some of your soaps! I love the fruit scents so apple, peach or lemon would be my pick. Probably lemon. I love citrus scents the best. Congrats on your Blogoversary! I'm so glad you started blogging and that I've gotten to meet you. Looking forward to following along for many years to come!

Lana said...

Happy anniversary my friend!

Your soaps were a big hit when everyone found a bar in his/her Christmas stocking!

I think I would end up wanting to eat all the yummy-sounding ones!

I'm a lavender girl with the cucumber/aloe or lemon coming in a close second. Depends on if I want to relax or wake up! ;-)


Have fun with this!
Hugs!

Linda... said...

CONGRATS! When my daughter got me started on blogging, I wasn't quite sure "it was me" but I have really enjoyed it and you're one of the reasons why.
As for your soaps, they all sound so yummy. Tough choice between the Morning Brew and Close Shave Vanilla! BUT, they all sound pretty good to me.

Yenta Mary said...

Are you serious -- do you really expect me to be able to make that kind of decision??? I not only want to smell the soaps, I practically want to eat them! But since I have to follow the rules to have a chance at winning, I suppose I'll pick lavender and imagine that I'm in the south of France!

Happy, happy anniversary! I truly consider it a blessing to have found you, my friend ... :)

Aliesha said...

Your soaps look amazing! I think my favorite one would be the raspberry cheesecake, but the morning brew is a close second! Congrars on your blogiversary!

suburban prep said...

What an amazing assortment of soaps. I was lost among all the differing scents and aromas. I would love so many but the Lemon Verbena really caught my eye.

EmptyNester said...

This is hard! But I guess the cucumber peel and aloe...but I wouldn't turn any of them down! Oh and Tucker votes for the Doggy Shampoo Bar..WAIT! Maybe I like the Chocolate Raspberry...no, I might try to eat that one... the peach...wait a minute...the Morning Brew...no, Hubs would want to be too close...Dang it! I'll have one of each please! LOL

Heide said...

Happy 1 Year Anniversary!! It has already been that long?!

It has been really fun getting to know you. You have re-awakened my Anglophile-ness!!

Made By Gen said...

A new follower from Thrifty Thursday blog hop... See you.

Cranberry Morning said...

Thanks for entering my blog giveaway!! Don't forget to list a soap so that your comment will be in the running. :-)

Robin said...

Congratulations on your 1st year.

My favorite would be Field of Dreams of Lavender...the smell would make me think of our Beloved England.

Candace said...

Congratulations! I had no idea that you had been blogging for only a year! I'm so happy that our paths have crossed. It has been such a pleasure getting to know you. I love soap that smells like food! Vanilla is my most favorite scent and what I normally use; however, after looking at your website, I think I would love to try your Peppermint soap. Thanks for hosting the giveaway! love, Candace

Under Her Wings said...

Happy anniversary, Judy. I'm so glad that I've had the privilege of "meeting" you. I feel that you are an old friend. All of the soaps sound delicious, but I'm guessing my favorites would be lemon verbena and peppermint. I've enjoyed looking at them before. Thanks for having a fun giveaway! Gloria

Rachel said...

What a lovely idea!! I love your soaps, they all look awesome, I almost can't choose a favorite! But if I did, I think my favorite is the peppermint tea one!! :)

Thanks for hosting the giveaway!! And as much as I would love sheep, I don't see it working in my apartment, so I'm glad you are going with the soaps. :) Congrats on your anniversary!!

:)

Natalya said...

OOOH! :) I like the new one. The Woods one. :) It looks so nice, and...maybe dad would let me wear it when we go deer hunting, because it would fit right in in a forest...no...that probably wouldn't work. I shouldn't smell of anything when I'm in a deer stand... ;)

Tiffanee said...

Congratulations. You have such a wonderful blog. Looking forward to the next year. There are lots of great scents to love. The pumpkin spice and close shave vanilla.

Judy S. said...

I enjoy your blog and your soaps! Don't know which "flavor" is my favorite though; I guess it'd be a tough choice between lavender and lemon verbena. It's been fun sharing knitting patterns and recipes with a fellow Wisconsinite! (even though I've lived in WA much longer...)

Deborah said...

Happy Anniversary my friend! You stuck with it unlike your friend that is on a 'sabbatical.' (of sorts) Any way my favorites are lavender, chocolate almond and lemon verbena...but I would be happy with any scent because ALL of your soaps are so lovingly created. Have a wonderful day. :)

the country cook said...

What a great giveaway! I've been wanting to try your raspberry cheesecake for some time. I'm just wondering if I'd keep myself from actually tasting it! :-)

J_on_tour@jayzspaze said...

Congratulations on your your blog being a year old. I'm pleased that I found you (on the Yorkshire profile page) because this is the ultimate variety blog full of warmth (even when there is deep snow !!), that feeds body, soul and spirit. Have a great weekend, J

Tami said...

Of my...I have smelled all your soaps. They are wonderful! Hmmm I would have to say the Lavender. The smell of lavender lotion has softened my hand after a hard day at work and has helped me sleep when I spray it on my pillowcase at night and then to wash my hands with it through out the day? Love the smell. Thank you for a wonderful blog and sharing your life with us over the past year.

Mama Hen said...

I love the peppermint! But I think I would like to try the peachy! Have a great night!

Diana Ferguson said...

Grandma's Kitchen and the vanilla one are my favs. I have this idea though that we couldn't go wrong with any of them! Thanks for your generosity!
BTW, February 3 is my son's birthday!

Denise said...

Bless you for having such a great giveaway.

Hannah.Rachel said...

Morning Brew! Oh, please, if I win, let me have a morning brew ;) These look really nice. I hope I win (:

Lorraine Erickson said...

Strangely enough I was just using the rasphberry cheesecake one - it's GORGEOUS - so that has to be my favorite :)

Anonymous said...

I would have to say "Grandma's Kitchen" would be my favorite. It makes me think of fond memories of baking with Grandma in the kitchen. I also recall making gingerbread men with the red hots. What a grand name for a great soap.

David Staggs said...

Close Shave Vanilla would be my favorite, because I go crazy for anything vanilla.

I hope I win!

Dan Ladig said...

Close Shave Vanilla sounds awesome! Congrats on one year of blogging!

Cat Lynch said...

Congrats on the blog-o-versery!
Ooo, close call on what sounds best; patchouli. Or Lavender. or lemon. Or coffee.....

Jen Criss said...

I don't know how I'd ever choose. The coffee one sounds awesome because I am a fanatic over anything coffee, but then peach because it's danikas favorite. Then there's the lemon or the cucumber...I just can't choose just one. They all look amazing, Congratulations on one year of blogging,

partialemptynester said...

Elaine said...

Raspberry Cheesecake sounds wonderful.

rogsdock said...

Oh, your soaps look so amazing - it's hard to choose! But I think I'll the Field of Dreams Lavender would probably be my favorite.

Andrea the Kitchen Witch said...
