April Giveaway

This monthly giveaway thing is hard work! I have to keep my eye on so many things, it’s unbelievable. My original plan was to post March and April close together. Since that didn’t happen, I thought April/May-combo is fine too. But then today I remembered I wanted to take part in Sew Mama Sew’s Big Giveaway Day and that’s in May, so the combination can’t happen then because I wanted to do something big for that.

I’m driving myself nuts over here.

So the solution is to do April now. IN APRIL!!!

Who would have thought this kind of craziness could work???

So welcome to Thrifty Finn’s April Thrifty Giveaway…

April1

The Postcrossing Edition. What is postcrossing you may wonder? Well, I’m glad you asked. It’s this fantastic community where people send cards to random strangers and get cards back from other random strangers! It’s like stalking but sweet!!! I personally have received around 200 cards from 45 different countries and right now I have 10 cards waiting to be sent.

What do the greetings cards have to do with postcrossing where you are supposed to send postcards? My answer is that I’m trying to encourage people to send more snail mail to their friends and family. Plus, sometimes it’s okay to send greeting cards in Postcrossing, especially if the cards matches recipient’s wishlist. Also, some postcrossers collect Nouvelles Images cards, just to let you know :D

What am I giving away? I’m giving a 4 B&W cards by VOGUE and 4 colourful cards by Nouvelles Images:

That amounts to 8 happy friends! If you ever get around sending them of course. Now the important part…How to enter:

March Thrifty Giveway

MarchThriftyGiveaway1

Woohoo! It’s time for the March Giveaway, naturally in April. Why am I giving stuff away every month this year? No other reason that I like winning free stuff myself and I take part of every raffle that I find so this is my way of paying back. Anyhoo, do you want to know what’s up for grabs?

MarchGiveaway3

A Finnish craft/home decor chain has had bunch of their craft goodies on -70% discount. By the time I got there, the shelves were pretty picked but I got something that you might like. First is a wood mounted stamp by Stampendous, then a pack of 4 Memento felt tips and last but not least, some lovely, yellow brads. Since these were on sale, they fill the only requirement I have for the prize, it has to be something thrifty/thrifted.

Anski from Cute and Cool Creations!

Congrats to the winner!

The February Giveaway will be announced when I get back home from the surgery! Keep your fingers crossed that everything will go well!

Note! The drawing process was as follows: First I wrote down, on scraps of paper, people’s names as many times they had entered. Then I threw them in a vintage bowl, mixed the papers several times before I drew one name.
