200+ Followers! Time for a Giveaway!


I had my last giveaway when my Followers List reached 100 and now, thanks to all of you wonderful readers, it has reached 200+! So I'm celebrating with another giveaway!

Because of everyone's great response to my Labyrinth Series, I thought that a labyrinth-themed giveaway might be a good idea. (By the way, I'm not finished with that series and will be posting about more labyrinths in January, so stay tuned!)

The Sand Labyrinth is a finger labyrinth that you create over and over again! The kit comes with a shallow 10-inch square wooden box, two labyrinth templates for tracing (both the pagan Cretan and christian Chartres designs), a bag of fine white sand, and a little book with instructions and inspirational quotations. You simply put the sand in the box, choose a template, place it on top, trace the unicursal path with your finger, remove the template and voilĂ ! A beautiful sand labyrinth for display or further meditation! (A word of caution: keep out of reach of cats . . . .)

The rules for entering are straightforward:

1. You must be an official Follower to enter. Old, new or just signed up in order to enter the contest, it's all good. And it doesn't matter where you're from in the world, I'll mail the prize anywhere!

2. In addition to being a Follower, you must leave me a comment on THIS post that you want to enter the contest.

3. One entry per person (leaving 10 comments will still only result in 1 entry!)

4. Entries will be accepted until 11:59 p.m. (Mountain Daylight Time) on Friday, December 31, 2010.

5. The winning entry will be chosen by random draw on Saturday, January 1, 2011 and the result posted here on Sunday, January 2, 2011.

As you can see, I'm leaving the contest open for the rest of the month because people are busy with the holidays and it may take some of you a while to read this post.

Good luck!

Hey Debz,

Please enter me in this contest! As you know, I had no real idea about the labyrinths until reading all about them on your blog. I'd like to learn even more about them.

BTW, are you going to watch the lunar eclipse tonight at 2:37am (12/21)? Not sure if you can see it in Canada, but I hope you can. I'm going to stay up late and hope I can see it and photograph it before the clouds roll in.

Rose - The Center of My Self said...

A hearty congrats on the 200+ followers, Debra! That's awesome. Love your diverse views on things and apparently others do, too. I've totally loved you labyrinth series and I'm thrilled there's more to come! Good luck to all of us!

Caroline said...

Cameron said...

What a wonderful idea, and a wonderful gift! A sand labyrinth is one of the most fabulous meditation tools and journeys. I congratulate you on your milestone and I also very much appreciate your faithfulness not just in writing this blog, but in reading other blogs! It is that kind of connectivity that creates community - and I look forward to your thoughts on my posts as much as I look forward to reading yours, because I know that sharing our thoughts is how to build that community. Blessed be friend - keep writing and know that your words are treasured and read...they are not just falling out into the void of the internet!
Blessed be!

Once again, thank you, dear friend! Looking forward to more Labyrinth posts in January!

Lady Grace Dreamweaver said...

Wow Debra! 200 followers. And what always strikes me is how many people will follow a blog without officially becoming a follower. You've touched many lives. Certainly Cameron and I love your blog and celebrate with you.

Enter me in the drawing, please. I adore this kind of finger labyrinth.

Bright blessings!!

Hope you had some spectacular holidays. Just catching up here and almost peeing my jammies while perusing your last few posts. I really need to get here for a morning laugh every day!

Thanks again for the Yule carols - they were a big hit!
