Cupcake Carnival: Giveaway #1

Are you ready??? Let's get this party started!!!

And how else would we do that other than with a giveaway?!?

CSN contacted me a few weeks back and offered to host a giveaway, and I jumped all over it for the Cupcake Carnival. You literally can get anything from CSN: from a sofa to a waffle maker, art to baby strollers.

So what's the giveaway? A $50 gift certificate you can use on any of their 200+ web sites. But clearly, since this is a cupcake party, I know you're only looking for cupcake things. :)

How adorable is this apron??


And what Cupcake Carnival is complete without colorful cupcake baking cups? I love these light pink ones!

Or, if you become quite the cupcake connoisseur after seeing all the yummy and beautiful cupcake posts in the coming days, you'll need the basics - a muffin pan. Gotta start somewhere! :)


Okay, I'll get right to what you're wanting to know... how to win! This giveaway is over. Another one starts tomorrow, Saturday, June 19th! The winner is announced here.

1. Go visit CSN and tell me what you'd buy with the $50 gift certificate if you won.
2. Follow me on twitter, and leave me a comment here telling me you're following.
3. If you're new here, follow attempting creative. Then leave me a comment and let me know you're following along. Or if you're already a follower, leave me a comment. And if you don't have a blog I can visit to contact you, just give me your e-mail in your comment.
4. Grab the Cupcake Carnival button and let your readers and friends know about what's going on. Then leave me a comment and tell me you did it.

Okay, okay.... go! Visit, follow, comment. This giveaway will end Friday, June 18 at noon (central). I will announce the winner Friday at 1 p.m. (central). And get this... we have another giveaway starting Saturday!

My entry is boring but practical - we are expecting our 1st, so I'd probably use the gift certificate towards a crib mattress - like the Colgate Classica Foam mattress!

I probably spend the $50 on a mandolin (This on is $39.00, Jaccard Safe Hands Mandolin in ABS - 200421) and the rest on oven mitts because i always burn myself taking my cupcakes and mini cakes out of the oven!! ($9.95 Sassy Cook'n Cheery Chirps Oven Mitt)

Ooooh, how fun! I'd buy more pieces to my Mikasa Italian countryside china set. Specifically, either the large platter or the tea pot! :) I love the diversity of things you can find at CSN.

Oh what a great giveaway.
I absolutely LOVE cupcakes!!!
I just subscribed to this blog!!

Blitzyflitzy said...

And i would definitely love an apron!
I have been thinking of making one...but that would require me to leave my house, drive to a store, find some fabric, buy the fabric, get back in the car, drive home, measure everything out, cut it, sew it, and that is all just way too much work..lol. So I just get covered in flour and stuff.

the apron is adorable. However, I would have to go for some new yoga equipment, to but off all the calories I'm gonna be putting on from eating all these cupcakes.

Rene @ cottage and vine said...

I follow you on twitter and I love rugs.

Kristen @ Miss Prissy Paige said...

So many choices for the gift certificate, I'd probably use it towards an ice cream maker. I'm in a phase where I want to start making my own and this would be the perfect way to get one!
