May Giveaway - Thirty-One Gifts Tote Bag

I may have mentioned (once or twice or more) that my birthday is in May and that it is coming soon. Well, my friend Ginelle has arranged a terrific present for me and also {drum-roll} for one of you:
A Thirty-One Gifts Organizing Utility Tote Bag.
Mine is that cute floral bag (which my girls have been carrying around constantly since it came in the mail) and the one I'm giving away is that gorgeous polka dot bag still in the plastic. It had to be that one, otherwise the giveaway would also include sticky peanut-buttery finger prints from a certain Miss Lili and goodness knows what from Sweet Pea, who is greatly taken with all things purse related.

What can you do with that incredibly cute bag? I'm glad you asked:
Actually, the folks at Thirty-One Gifts have come with {wait for it...} 31 Uses for these bags:
See? Cute and useful. Plus, many Thirty-One Gifts products can be personalized.

Here's how this giveaway is going to work: You can get multiple entries.
  • 1st, mandatory entry: go to Ginelle's site and look through the spring catalog. Leave me a comment telling me your favorite Thirty-One Gifts product.
  • 2nd possible entry: follow Candid Diversions with Google Friend Connect or the reader of your choice. Leave a comment telling me you do this.
  • 3rd possible entry: follow Candid Diversions on Facebook. Leave a comment telling me you do this.
  • 4th possible entry: tweet, post on FB, or post on your own blog about this giveaway. Leave me a comment with your link.
  • 5th possible entry: talk (via email or phone call) with Ginelle about the "OJ Incentive". Here's how Ginelle explained this to me: If anyone signs up to be a Thirty-One Gifts consultant between now and May 31, they can get a full rebate for the cost of their start-up kit if they sell $1000 in their first 30 days (about 2-3 parties).
This giveaway will run until May 18 and I will post the winner (chosen via Random Number Generator) on Saturday, May 19.
Yes, for those of you keeping track, that is my thirty-first birthday. Or, as I like to call it: the second anniversary of my 29th birthday.

This giveaway is open to all friends and family (excluding anyone who actually lives in Chez Charming with me. I imagine Sweet Pea is the only one who will care about this restriction) provided you live in the "Lower 48". (That means that this giveaway is open to US residents only, and we're just ignoring those poor folks in Alaska and Hawaii. I'm sure they're used to it.) I'll get your super-cute polka dot utility tote in the mail or hand delivered to you ASAP so you can use it to carry all your VBS paraphernalia back and forth to church (Or, that could just be me, I guess. VBS makes me feel like I ought to just live at church).

Super special thanks to Ginelle for setting this up!

  11. So excited about this giveaway! 2 fun facts to share about Thirty-One---First, its name "Thirty-One" is derived from the passage in the Bible about the Virtuous Woman in Proverbs 31. And, second, the company was started in 2003 in Chattanooga, TN by a woman named Cindy Monroe, and she ran the business out of the basement of her home. Now, its headquarters are in Johnstown, Ohio.

  20. I liked the home office organizer that hangs on the wall. Right now I've got large yellow envelopes pinned to a bulletin board serving the purpose.

    Hmm. Maybe I've just given you and your siblings an idea of something I'd like to have for MY birthday. Start saving those pennies! :)
