***Edited to add: Make sure you’re leaving a separate comment for each thing. If you bundle all of them together it’s only one entry! Also, this is for residents in the United States – not international readers…sorry about not stating that earlier.   

So, I’ve been hinting a little bit about something exciting and I’m finally ready to spill the beans. Last week I hit 20 people on my Facebook page! OK, OK, I know it’s not a huge number, but each and every time any of my blogger stats goes up I squee just a little bit. 😉

To celebrate I thought why not just have our first giveaway? The prize? A $25.00 gift card to your choice of Michael’s, JoAnn Fabrics or Target (am I the only one that calls it Tar-jayyyyyyy?)! This is coming straight out of my wallet to you. I’m not advertising for them (though I do love all three and totally would) and I’m not getting any kickbacks for offering this giveaway.

Here’s how to enter:

1. Leave a comment under this entry telling me which store you’d prefer the gift card to be from. Just for fun, tell me what you’d do with it. I love living vicariously. 🙂

Optional bonus entries:
2. Follow me on Google Friend Connect. (Current followers are eligible for this one too, just let me know in a separate comment that you already follow me via GFC.)
3. Follow me on Pinterest. Leave me a comment letting me know you’ve followed.
4. “Like” The Scrappy Housewife on Facebook. (Again, current “Likers” are eligible, just leave me an additional comment below telling me the name you’d be under over on Facebook so I can double check).
5. Blog about the giveaway and leave a comment with the link to your specific blog post (not your blog). I try really hard to connect with those that connect to me via GFC so you’ll get a like in return.

I will pick a winner Sunday night and announce the winner on Monday! Good luck!



  1. Yay! Your first giveaway!!! Congrats! I’d choose Tarjayyyyyyy 😉 I would save it and use it for Christmas presents – I know I’m super exciting aren’t I????

  2. Awww…. you are so generous! And congratulations on hitting 20 followers on Facebook!

    I think I would pick the Tarjay giftcard since it is easier to get to than the other stores. I am not sure what I would use it for because ones mind always seems to be changed when walking in there. Matching towels might be nice though. 🙂

  3. Following you on Pinterest now. I love the idea of the magazine holder for cans. Those things really are fantastic organizational tools!

  4. Hey 🙂
    I am following you on FACEBOOK 🙂
    I tried finding you on Pinterest, but I am having trouble locating you. I’m new to Pinterest, so maybe I am not looking right?

    Target and Joann’s are both a favorite of mine 🙂
    I think I might choose….Target? I’ve been doing new things around the house and I probably would try to find some cute decor for my living room 🙂 However, I did see these particular building blocks for my son that I use to play with at my Grandma’s at Target! I would most likely get the toy for him and stash it away for Christmas. 🙂

  5. Hi Christina! What a great giveaway! Target is my all-time favorite store so I would definitely choose Target. I need some new curtain rods and/or clips so I can finally get a window treatment up in my living room!

  6. I’d love a Target gift card for a new shirt, but it would probably end up going towards my daughter’s upcoming birthday party. 🙂

  7. I am now following you on Google Connected. If I won I would want a Joann’s Giftcard for some more fabric since I am teaching myself how to sew…sort of 🙂
