Gift Certificate Giveaway!

I have some really exciting news. CSN Stores contacted me about reviewing some of their products or giving away a gift certificate to their stores for one of you. After all the love you've poured out to me over the last few months I couldn't be selfish, so one commenter on my blog will win a SIXTY DOLLAR GIFT CERTIFICATE to any of their 200+ websites.  CSN stores is like an online mall and  you can find everything from bar furniture to briefcases, cookware to cribs - they seriously rock!

Here's some of my fave things:

Isn't this just the swankiest Mini Home Bar? Makes me want to throw a cocktail party and wear my new little black dress. Maybe I will.

Modern Furnishings make me all swoony:




At Racks and Stands they have a great selection of... well, racks and stands *grin*. I love the sideboards and pot racks especially.


 

And my personal favorite is Cookware.com  where I desperately want these dishes




and this pitcher




Love those yummy bright colors! A girl can't have too much happy-hued serving ware, right?

Thanks for taking this virtual shopping trip with me. Ready to win the sixty dollar gift card? What you need to do is:

1. Check out CSN Stores and leave a comment telling me something you'd like to have (or you think I'd like - that works too.)
2. Post about this giveaway on your blog (linking back here of course) - I bet your friends would love to win the GC :-)
3. Follow my blog (or subscribe in Google Reader. Just let me know in the comments)
4. Tell me what you like to read about on this blog, what tutorials you'd love to see, what I can do to make Made By Nicole a super-fun part of your day.
5. Post about this giveaway on Twitter. For example: 
" RT @nikimaki - Win $60 GC for clothing, housewares, decor & more. Go to MadeByNicole to find out how: http://ow.ly/1FgGq Please RT"

Did you see that? You get up to ** five chances ** to win! Please do me a favor and leave a separate comment for each of these - it makes tallying up the entries a lot easier. Easy is good :-)


One winner will be chosen on Mother's Day, Sunday May 9th at 9:00 PM using Random.org. I'll post the winner on Monday.

OHhhh, I love CSN! I recently entered one of their contests and made it to the top 60 or so for a chance to do a living room makeover. Didn't win though. :( I'd love to find some artwork or really pretty accents for my living room! :)

Jennifer Moore said...

Oh, and I already follow your blog. (it's fabulous, btw) ;)

Hey Girl! Thanks for stopping by my blog! If you have any ?s about the swag bucks let me know. Basically use the search box on top for EVERYTHING, any site you want to go to search it then click the link to that page rather than typing the web address in. Its not a fast process but boy the points do add up :) OK I have never heard of the store you have the give away for and I just spent over an HOUR looking at their goodies. I want a BUNCH of stuff :) I am going to do a few other ways to enter but thought this was a good start :)

Jennifer Richardson said...

Well as you know I am new to your blog but I did notice how much variety you have on there. I LOVE that! I try to be creative in all aspects of my life, not just scrapbooking and crafting. Keep up the great work :)

Jennifer Richardson said...

Okay, Im a follower :) and I LIKE it!!!!!!!! Sorry for comment after comment. I am the worlds most UNLUCKY person, so I figure that if I enter each of the ways you said we could perhaps I will get lucky once in my lifetime :) Hugs

Jennifer Richardson said...

Okay Nicole are you sick of me yet? lol...I have posted on my little blog about your giveaway and blog and put a link back for ya! Hope thats good for one more entry! I just saw the coolest storage cabinet that will hold my Scrapbooking papers AMAZINGLY :) Nite!

Jennifer Richardson said...

Can I share this on Face book rather than twitter for the 5th entry? I dont twitter (I know I know, as I duck and hide) lol...Ok if I can thats great. I am posting about ya now on my FB page, if it doesnt count no biggie, maybe a few of my friends will head your way and get to see your amazing projects :)

Nicole, I'm a new follower, and I just love your blog. I have recently had back surgery too, and it is comforting to know that what I'm experiencing is not uncommon. I'm not alone!! ...someone out there UNDERSTANDS when I say, "I just couldn't do it today!"
I think I especially enjoy your blog because you have a mix of topics ...crafts, family, cooking, etc ...just whatever is happening in your life!
Now, for CSN, I want ... no, I NEED, the Calypso Basics stock pot in RED!! :)
...and as for JenniferR., well I might be a teeny bit luckier, I once entered a local jewelry store's contest ...first prize was a ladies 2 carat cocktail ring!! NO, I won 2nd prize ...a MAN'S WATCH!! haha!

I tweeted too!

MaryEllen said...

Okay, if you're like me, just do a search for "bookshelf" at CSN and you'll be there for hours, drooling. Sigh. I could spend a whole lot of money there, if I had it to spend now!

MaryEllen said...

I'm still curious about that Chicken Vinegar Soup referenced in your eclairs post . . . I love any newsy posts you do, and the recipes. That's the best we craft-impaired folk can aspire to, much as we admire your talent! :)

I'd never shopped CSN before but after browsing for only a short time I've found several items on my "wish-list": their bright pitchers, Fiesta dishes, art work, and even water skis and tubes! I'd love a chance to win!

This is my first visit to your blog and I really enjoyed it. I guess I would like to see more "foodie" stuff on it. I enjoy recipes and food blogs as well as craft blogs.
