5k Giveaway

So yesterday I completed the Liz Logelin Foundation 5k, remember the one that I committed to running way back in March.  And I planned to blog about that tonight, but then I forgot my camera with all my pictures at work, so I'm swapping posts and you are going to get Monday's post instead.   That post just happens to be an AWESOME GIVEAWAY!

I have been amazed by the blogger friends I've made, particularly the care that they have given me over the last months.  They are so generous with their support of me and of each other and I consider myself very very lucky to count them as friends.  Ironically, I met some of these friends for the first time at the MN Blogger Conference last week, including the fabulous and lovely Kristina Joy.

Earlier this month I sent out a random tweet to see if anyone had a giveaway idea or brand for my September Blog-A-Thon.  I was just itching to give something away to thank all you readers out there.  Kristina dropped me a note that said she'd love to giveaway something from her brand new Etsy shop {So}Sartina.  Now I love supporting etsy and its talented artisans so this was a wonderful fit.  And when you see her wonderful creations you will think so too.

See?  Look at the blue lining peeking out and the blue rose.  I love this!
Just look at this business holder!  So much cuter than my bland target card.  
Just imagine holding your blogger cards (or business cards in this).
I love the idea of green shopping but this elevates your good-deed bagging to a whole new level of cuteness!
So you can see why I was thrilled at the thought of giving away some of her beautiful creations.  After talking over the details of the giveaway with Kristina she decided to giveaway at $30.00 credit to her amazing shop.  And $30 goes a LONG way towards handmade style of your very own.  (You could even snag nearly 5 rose pins which are so pretty.)

So how do you enter?  It is easy - simply visit Kristina's etsy shop and tell us what item you love the most and come back and leave that in a comment here.  Please also leave an email address if is not obviously apparent on your profile.

If you want extra entries you may also do the following things: (Please leave an extra comment for all that apply)

1.  Follow my blog over on my sidebar (for one extra entry).

2.  Friend The Lutheran Geek facebook page (for one extra entry).

3.  Follow me on twitter (for one extra entry).

4.  Follow {So}Sartina on twitter (for one extra entry).

5.  Tweet the following: (only one tweet for one extra entry).

I want to be {So}stylish and win the @SoSartina giveway on @LutherLiz's blog: http://bit.ly/cFapZJ

I'm so excited to have a giveaway to thank all my wonderful readers, and I'm {So} excited to support {So}Sartina.  Thanks for entering and giving her shop a look.  I love promoting wonderful people!

THIS JUST IN! Kristina has decided to give everyone who enters the giveaway a 20% coupon code to her shop.  So be sure to leave an email so she can send it to you!

The Details: This giveaway will run from now through Monday, September 27, 2010 at 9:00 p.m. CST.   The winner will be selected from the entries by Random.org.  Once selected, the winner will be contacted and will have 48 hours to respond.  If no response is received in that time frame, a new winner will be chosen.  The winner will recieve a $30 credit to be used for anything from Kristina's etsy shop only.

Disclosure:  I asked for publicly if anyone had a giveaway and Kristina stepped forward.  I am simply delighted to support her new business venture, although she did say I could have one of those amazing business card holders too.  Thanks Kristina!  You rock!
