Giveaway Monday - Just The Beginning!

Yes you read it right, it's time for a giveaway bonanza here at Recipes For Life!

I'm so excited! I've wanted to do this for quite a while but decided it was best to wait for the New Year and make it a year long event!

Starting today, and on the first Monday of every month in 2010 I will be holding a giveaway, that means 12 chances for you to win a gift from me this year!
Each month the prize will be different (but equal in fabulousness!)

All you have to do is take part, what've you got to lose?

So here is the science bit:

  • Giveaways will be posted the first Monday of every month.
  • Winners will be announced the following Monday.
  • If you want to be included you must enter before midnight on the Saturday.
  • You must have a blog to enter.
  • These giveaways are open to bloggers in all countries but I must ask that your blog is written in English.
  • You must leave a comment to be included in the draw.
  • You will get another entry if you are, or become a follower.
  • You will get another entry if you mention (and link) that month's giveaway in your blog (just let me know if you do)
See not too many rules!

This month I'm giving away.............

A Surprise Package!!!

(I will post the contents of the package when I announce the winner)

So are you in? Just leave a comment on this post to be entered in this month's draw!

Good Luck!!!

Lots of Love

Very generous of you hunni, I was thinking on something similar as i've vowed to do one RAK each month for my 40 before 40.
There's something so satisfying about sending a parcel off to someone.
