Mid-Winters Eve



Welcome to Colorimetry and the Mid-Winters Eve Blog Hop

Hosted by I Am a Reader, Not a Writer & Oasis for YA & The Daily Harrell - hop on over to catch all the great giveaways!!!




This Giveaway ends on midnight (or whenever I declare it "over" the following morning) on the 27th of December...

...AFTER Christmas, AFTER all (or most) of the parties and family get-togethers, AFTER eating all the cookies (for me).

When all the glitter settles and there's a sudden lull between Christmas and New Year's... well, at that moment, it's a great time to win a giveaway!!  :-)  Maybe a book you didn't get or a sequel to one you did!!  The point is, we can breathe again, read again... and win giveaways again!!  :-)  Woop! Woop!!

With no further ado...

I'm making this giveaway SIMPLE 'cause I haven't figured out an easy giveaway form, yet (hint-hint - share your secrets!!) so there's ONE required entry which includes...

 make sure you're over 13 or know someone who is who will win for you

 comment w/ how you follow my blog

 and answer my Christmas Question:



 What's your favorite cookie/treat?




Oh... and what to win?

A book of your choice from the Book Depository (if they ship to you) or an e-gift card from Amazon for $15:

    My favorite cookie is one I make. It is a peanut butter cookie with a reese cup in the center made in a mini muffin pan so they come out super cute! I also love cut out sugar cookies decorated for the holidays!

    I ONLY use rafflecopter for giveaways! It is the easiest way to throw a giveaway. They keep track of everything for you and it makes it really easy to ask people to do extra stuff like "like" your facebook page, follow you on twitter and stuff like that. I hate entering giveaways where they ask you to do that but it isn't on rafflecopter. Just an idea! The commenting works great too as long as you don't want a whole bunch of extra stuff done because it becomes tedious to write it all out in here.

    I use Rafflecopter for giveaways. SUPER easy to track AND for people to enter, especially since they updated. If you only want a "follow" to enter though, sometimes it's easier to just "comment to enter".
