Thursdays are for Giveaways~*

Okay, okay.  I know.  There are a lot of giveaways going on that have my name affiliated with them lately.  In my defense, the whole blogosphere seems to have giveaway-itis.  Which is totally real.  I'm a professor, I know.


See, the thing is, giveaways give me an excuse to make things.  I'm not running for profit, its just for fun.  And there are only so many owl pillows one person should have.  Three, in case you are wondering.  Right Chelsea?  Anyway.  I also enter giveaways, which has won me some free ad space, which enables me to participate in more giveaways...its a wonderfully crafty circle of giveaway-ness. Which is also real.

That reminds me.  Should any of you want an owl pillow or fox pillow or penguin or embroidered lavender sachet, just shoot me an email (theclosetintellectual *at* gmail *dot* com).  I'll totally do it for cost, or ad space.  If I have the supplies on hand, I'll do it for shipping.

Maybe someday I will sell them, BUT IT IS NOT THIS DAY.

That last line is infinitely more impressive if delivered whilst on a horse in front of the black gates.

But anyway.

I thought I'd use today's post to promote some of these wonderful bloggers with smashing grand giveaways going on.  If you are anti-free stuff, then give this post a miss~*
