Crafty laundry love! (giveaway alert!!!)

If you didn't win in the Purex Baby giveaway, I promised you I'd have more goodies to give.  And I DO!  (But first. . . . a card!)

I really enjoyed the color palette I used on the laundry-love cards I shared a few weeks ago, so I stuck with it and created this little baby too.  The Paper Smooches Squeaky Clean stamp set is really fun, and I'm anxious to get it inky again! 

The winners of this next giveaway will win this card (or one almost like this!) , plus a coupon for a free box of 


Borax is a fairly new-to-me product.  I bought it for the first time, last year, and I was completely amazed with all the ways it can be used.  Here in Florida we have incredibly hard water, and Borax is a great addition to laundry, the dishwasher, and even in household cleaning, to help break up those hard-water stains.  It's a terrific laundry booster, by adding 1/2 cup to each load along with your detergent.  I shake it onto my damp bathtub, and scrub it on like a normal powdered bathroom cleaner.  I was amazed how well it works. (And it's all natural - did you know that Borax is a natural mineral with nothing added?! Amazing!) You can find a great list of uses on the 20 Mule Team Borax website.




Borax is hosting a Fresh Year, Fresh Laundry sweepstakes.  Enter to win the $1,500 Grand Prize, or 171 coupons for free Borax! (Why 171? Because the total prize equals $2,013. Clever huh!?)
Please enter from my unique URL. . . it will show Purex and Borax that I'm actively helping to promote their companies!!! (And well - you know, maybe you'll WIN!!!!)

Plus, I have two coupons for FREE BOXES of 20 Mule Team Borax to give away to my sweet crafty readers.  (Maybe we can come up with some new crafting technique using Borax???)  Just leave a comment on this post - you can comment once per day through Monday, January 21st.   I'll draw TWO lucky winners!

CONTEST IS CLOSED! THANKS FOR ENTERING!!!! :)

I'm trying my best to mesh together these giveaways for great household products, onto my CRAFTY-centered blog.  I hope you are enjoying them, and I hope it is an enriching, rather than irritating, feature.   As a member of the Purex Insiders, Purex along with other great companies offer me the chance to try their products, and share their products.  They are incredibly good to me, and I want to do my part to promote them.  (Free stuff is always good though, right? And I'm pretty sure you're cleaning your house in between crafty projects. . .well, you should be, anyway!)  I'd love your feedback though (and your comment will enter you for a chance to win!) so let me know what you think!

I have been using this stuff since my kids were born. You can sprinkle it in your carpet, let it sit and then vacuum. I think it also helps get rid of bugs? Any way, I love this card! You sweep me off my feet with every card you make. Always brilliant!

This is one of my favorite stamp sets, and I love your use of them! The pinks and grays are just fabulous!

Very cute card--I like the color combo. I make my own laundry detergent and borax is one of the ingredients--would love to win.

I've been using Borax for years! We have our own well that even with a water softner still doesn't do the greatest job of getting laundry clean. Borax in every load helps the detergent work better. I also love using it to get the rust stains out of my showers and toilets.

I checked out the list of uses and I need to start using borax more than just laundry--thanks for the link.

Your card is absolutely adorable! It reminds me of my mom, who loved doing laundry!

I haven't ever tried Borax before, so I'd love to win the drawing.

Also, thank you so much for your kind words about my Publication Incentives list on my blog. I've been keeping it updated for a long time, and nobody has ever mentioned that they've used it. I really appreciate you taking the time to let me know.

*HUGS*
