The Cinderella Giveaways


It's here!  Cinderella Week has begun.  Don't forget to visit Heidi's blog, Along the Brandywine, for the official tag, Heidi's giveaway, and the link-up for everyone's reviews and so on!

I am kicking off my partying with a couple of giveaways :-)  Feast your eyes on these prizes!


I'm splitting these into two giveaways, one for the USA and Canada only, and one worldwide.  My shipping budget only stretches so far, I'm afraid.  People from the USA and Canada may enter both!

These giveaways run through the end of Sunday, January 10. I will draw the winners on Monday, January 11 and post the names of the winners that day, as well a notify them by email. PLEASE make sure your information for the giveaway widgets includes your current email address so that if you win a prize, you'll get the email informing you that you won! If you don't reply to my email by Monday, January 18, I will choose another winner and award your prize to them instead.

First, the worldwide prizes:

A Cinderella-themed thong-style bookmark that I bought from Etsy shop BookNiche.

A Cinderella peg doll whose dress and hair I crocheted myself from my own original pattern.
She is not quite 3 inches tall.  She will endure many hours of play, but because she's small,
she's not recommended for children under 3 because she could be a choking hazard.

TWO sets of stickers from the 2015 live-action Cinderella movie.
Each set will contain the five stickers pictured, which measure 2"x 2".
I will draw TWO winners for these stickers; each will receive ONE set.

THREE keychains made from some of the same stickers as above.
Each keychain has Cinderella and Kit's wedding on the back.
One has Cinderella on the front, one has Kit, and one has the fairy godmother.
(I apologize for the less-than-stellar photos -- these are really shiny and reflective.)
I will draw THREE winners for these keychains; each will receive ONE keychain.

A small notebook I bought from the Etsy shop StalkingMarla.
The front has Cinderella and Prince Charming, and the back has Cinderella.
Inside are about 60 sheets of blank paper.  It measures about 3.5" x 2.5".

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Now for the USA and Canada Only section:

A brand-new copy of the 2015 Cinderella soundtrack by Patrick Doyle.
Still factory-sealed, but the case has a crack on the front.  I assume the disc is fine.

A second-hand copy of the 1998 Ever After soundtrack by George Fenton.
This disc works perfectly in both of my CD players, but I can't guarantee it will work for you.

One mug that says "Have courage and be kind" on it.
I decorated this mug myself, and it is hand-wash only.
Holds about 8 oz and stands 3.5" tall.

One mug that says "A dream is a wish your heart makes" on it.
 I also decorated this mug myself, and it is also hand-wash only.
Holds about 8oz and stands 3.5" tall.

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Good luck!  And don't forget to visit Along the Brandywine for Heidi's giveaway and lots and lots more Cinderella fun all week long!  I'll be participating in the official tag and posting a movie review here later this week, and a book review on my book blog, and we'll see what else I come up with :-)

Also, I have a special offer for all of you!  This week only, use the coupon code CINDERELLA to take 50% off your entire order of crochet patterns in my Etsy shop, Huggermugger.  I've got the pattern for the little Cinderella peg doll there, as well as a bunch of other peg dolls, hats, and other things.

    2. I think I like the Kit one best (not the Kit-and-Cinderella one, the one where he's just by himself). That sounds weird--please don't think I don't ship Kit and Cinderella, cause I DO. I just prefer that one keychain over the others ;-)

      Delete
    3. Jessica, Kit + Cinderella is on the back of each one :-) But I get what you're saying!

  9. What a lovely giveaway! I'm not participating in the week because, since my laptop is broken and I have to use Mom's, it's not really convenient to write blog posts. (All the drafts I have are coming in handy now.) But I'd love to enter this giveaway, all the same. (*Are* non-participators allowed to enter? If not, just let me know and that'll be fine - I have too much stuff anyway. ;)) If, however, I can, here are my preferences...

    Worldwide: #1 - stickers, #2 - bookmarks

    USA/Canada: #1 - soundtrack, #2 - 'Be Kind' mug

    Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

    1. Eva, OF COURSE non-participants can enter! That's why I didn't make the "participate in party" thing mandatory.

      Which soundtrack???

    2. Oops. I forgot to specify. :P The Cinderella 2015 soundtrack - I haven't seen Ever After yet.

    1. Thanks, Charity! I had a lot of fun making the mugs in particular. My girls are excited that I made another Cinderella peg doll because while I was at it, I made them a Prince Charming, a Fairy Godmother, a Wicked Stepmother, and two stepsisters :-)

      Delete
  11. My first choice is the bookmark or notebook, and then the soundtracks. :)

    Lovely giveaway, Hamlette!! :)

  12. *raises hand timidly*
    Excuse me, but I am not 100% sure how I should do this. (The giveaway looks SO nice! You sure have a knack for picking up amazingly gorgeous things.) So, everyone else seems to be giving in their preferences....I would like to 'enter', so I guess I will give my preferences and then ask the question. ;)
    As I live in Australia, I'll do the world wide one. :)
    -My first choice would be the stickers. (I'm guessing we should also say which one we'd like the most? I like the wedding one and the one of Cinderella the most. :D)
    -My second choice would be the keychains. (I really don't mind. Maybe the one of Cinderella?)
    Okay, so my question was...now what? :P When am I suppose to give my email address to you? (I feel like I've missed reading something....sorry. :/)

    1. Miss Meg -- Do you see the little square box thingie underneath the pictures of the notebook? That's what I call a "giveaway widget" -- it's powered by a site called Rafflecopter. It should say something like, "Sign in with Facebook or your email address." If you click on one of those, or on the little drop-down list in the corner of that box, you can "sign in" with your email address and a user name of your choice. If that box doesn't appear there for you, try reloading this page and see if it pops up.

      Does that help?

      Delete
    2. Oh....*blushes* Thank you. :) Yes, I'm quite sure it worked. I was just confused because I didn't have Facebook and I thought it didn't apply to me. So yes, it did help - thank you, for the help and the giveaway! :)
