Today We are Giving Away... (PRIZES CLAIMED)


Two $20.00 Gift Certificates to Hand Picked Daisy

You know a product is good when you get one for yourself, your daugter, your sister, your friend, and your mother-in-law (except she doesn't know I got her one yet--it's for her b-day--so if you know my mother-in-law, mum's the word).

You know that product is more than just good when the people you gave the product to start getting it for others. And the cycle goes on and on. I would like to introduce you to one such product today. It is a lovely journal from Hand Picked Daisy:

When I opened my package from Hand Picked Daisy and unveiled my precious journal, I was delighted. It was even more charming than it looked in the images I had seen on my computer. A journal from Hand Picked Daisy will please most anyone--they make such unique and exquisite gifts. You can even have the person's name printed on the back. Who doesn't love a gift made just for them?

However, journals are not the only little lovelies you can find at Hand Picked Daisy. They also offer:

Scripture Totes:

Magnets:
Birthday Calendars:
Cards (with magnets for the birthday gal to keep):

And Visiting Teaching Kits:

Hand Picked Daisy offers a new Visiting Teaching Kit each month. You can sign up to receive a Visiting Teaching Kit each month of the year and at the beginning of the month, wa-la, the cutest Visiting Teaching Kit will arrive for you to give to those you visit. Above is July's. It comes with a message, a story, a pioneer toy, and a recipe (how fun!)

DISCOUNT: The first ten people who order something from Hand Picked Daisy will receive FREE SHIPPING! Just convo (on Etsy) or email Hand Picked Daisy at handpickeddaisy@gmail.com before you order and mention Give Away Today and your shipping will be free (if you are amongst the first ten, that is).

However, if you would like to go to a store with a door (rather than purchase via Internet), you can find Hand Picked Daisy at one of our favorite shoppes, Bags That Fit, which is located at 127 East Main Streeet Lehi, Utah 84043

You can enter to win one of the $20.00 Gift Certificates from Hand Picked Daisy up to THREE times today. This giveaway is open worldwide. London, Tokyo, Sidney, and Cairo, that includes you, so go ahead and enter to win.

For one entry, leave your first and last name in a comment.
Example: Jane Doe

For second entry, visit Hand Picked Daisy's site here. Then return to Give Away Today and in a NEW comment, tell us what you would use your $20.00 gift certificate if you are one of our lucky winners.
Example: Jane Doe: I would use the gift certificate to buy more journals. There are still plenty of people to whom I would love to give a journal.

For a third entry, about twelve years ago my mom gave me a daily perpetual calendar entitled "Five Things to Be Happy about Today...". Each day I would pull off a page and the calendar would list five things. This little calendar inspired me to begin writing down my own list of five things each night that had made me happy that day. Sometimes I list five words; other times I write five sentences (by the way, I write them in my cute journal from Hand Picked Daisy :). This has proven to be a quick and easy way to journal. And I swear I can go back and read a list and I will remember the events of that entire day. It is also a great way to reflect on what truly makes me happy in life. Therefore, for a third entry, in a NEW comment, tell us your first and last name and up to five things you are happy about today.

Example: Jane Doe: 1. Going for a run this morning. Up to three miles, baby!
2. Finally hanging up our homemade bird house in the yard.
3. My husband being really nice about my funky new hairdo.
4. Taking the kids to the park for a picnic with my best childhood friend (that's a shout-out to you, Barns).
5. Being able to spend time with my family and my husband's family this past weekend.

The winner of the gift certificates from Hand Picked Daisy will be announced Tuesday, July 7th. Please visit us then to see if you are our winner and to discover our new giveaway for the day. Thanks and have a great day!
