CSN Stores Giveaway

I was recently contacted by CSN to see if I was interested in doing a giveaway through my blog. I have loved this company ever since I got started blogging. I have won 2 items from one of their many stores. That is one of the reasons I like them. They have soooo many stores to shop through!! One of the items I won was a baby mobile and then another item was a cup that they were out of stock by the time the giveaway ended. So, they let me pick any one item I wanted for the same amount. And guess what I got? A whole 4 setting, 20 piece dish set. Very nice!! They have many different stores to choose from. One has toys and games available, and another one has stools of all sorts! This is a very nice company. I have had no problems with any of the items I received. And guess what I have for you all? A giveaway!!!! CSN has graciously provided a child's Paisley Print apron for one of my readers. This is a very cute apron. It 2 pockets in the front. It also ties at the waist and at the neck, which I find very nice. My little sisters love cooking and baking but often the aprons are too big and I have to double tie it in the back an extra time. Not with this one! And I really like the print:) So, if you know a little girl who loves to cook or bake, this is what she needs! Now, one of my readers is going to win one of these cute aprons. So, get ready for some fun:)

Here is a very neat idea for a giveaway. This lady over at Brown Couch Events has a giveaway for a Flirty Apron. She has made a list of questions for Valentines Day. To enter, you have to post the answers to her questions on your blog. Then go back and let her know you posted them on your blog. They aren't grading you:) And it is about foods. So have some fun and go enter:)

I am going to post her question and then my answer after it. Here goes:)

Fire and Ice Review

FIRE And ICE Review
Written by Susan Page Davis.

"Robyn Holland’s grandfather is injured in a dog sledding accident, and Robyn blames herself. Her business raising and training sled dogs takes a hard hit when six dogs are stolen from her kennel. Veterinarian Rick Baker helps her investigate the customer she suspects—and they find more than they’d bargained for."

I was recently sent a copy of Fire And Ice to review. This is a Christian Fiction book written by Susan Page Davis. This is part 2 in Susan's Alaska series for Heartsong Presents. I have read some of this author's other works and enjoyed them so I was hoping this one would live up to my expectations. It did!!! I do not have the first book in the series so I am coming in to the story in the middle but the Heartsong books are made to read by themselves so I didn't have a problem getting into it. One of the reasons I liked this book was that it had sled dogs in it. I love seeing the sled races and I used to live in Maine where they had some of the races. Susan has done her research as usual, along with living in Maine, and this is seen throughout the book. Another reason I liked this book was that you have a girl who has not just resigned herself to being single, but she has a joyous life and is happy being single. Overall, this book was a great read! Susan has the 3rd novel in this series coming out April of this year. If you don't have it yet, it can be ordered on Susan's website here.

I was graciously provided a copy of this book for review from Susan Davis. All thoughts are my own.

CSN Go Green Food Storage Container

I haven't been on here recently. Just a lot going on. This giveaway I found is for a 6 piece Food Storage bins from CSN. I really enjoy CSN as they have sooo many items!! I have won several items from their company and they are all very nice. The baby mobile I won is very cute and plays music. The last item I won never came in so they gave me the option of picking something else off the site. I was able to get a 4 setting 20 piece dish set. Very nice!! So this food container set will be nice! And there are minimal entries on this. Go to The Style MD. Ends the 13th.
