I Won: Discover Africa Notebooking Packet

I’m doing a “series” of posts to send some linky love to sites where I have won things from giveaways. I’ll feature one site and item every time I win something.

Joy at Five J’s had a giveaway for the Discover Africa Notebooking Packet from Jessica of Balancing Everything. I’m downloading it as I type this. It is a huge file!=lots of pages to print out.

I’m a little excited about winning this because we are learning about Africa in Classical Conversations this year. We also have friends who are in Africa (northern and southern) and relatives will be living there in this upcoming year. We are doing The Story of the World and Melody is very interested in the Ancient Egyptians and all that jazz. When we got the Party City ad with the Halloween costumes, she was excited to see an Egyptian costume in there. :p

Thanks Allie for encouraging your readers to read through the summer. (Psst, if you want to learn more about how you can earn free Amazon giftcards or other things through swagbucks, let me know.)

I Won: What’s In The Bible

I’m doing a “series” of posts to send some linky love to sites where I have won things from giveaways. I’ll feature one site and item every time I win something.

I was working on a webpage and decided to take a break to peek in on twitter. Jolanthe had tweeted that there was a twitter party coming up in a few minutes. It was hosted by iHomeschool Network. I’ve only been to one twitter party before and I had no idea what I was doing. Twitter Tip: Don’t go to any twitter parties when you just joined twitter the week before. It was fun though. Anyhow….so I was in and out of working on the webpage and watching the twitter stream on my phone…Twitter Tip: It is not recommended to join in on a twitter party from your phone. :p It took me awhile to get the hang of it again. These parties are fast! So a few questions were asked and there were random winners chosen. It came to the grand prize, and I was sure I wasn’t going to win because I was a little slow at answering the questions (see tip #2 above), and making sure to add all the handles and hashtags, and whatever else that starts with the letter h I guess. :p The winner was announced, and I won! Wow!! So what did I win?

I won all the What’s In The BIble DVDs and a CD!! I was so excited because I have been trying to figure out what we wanted to add in our curriculum for “Bible” next year, and I think this is perfect since the girls are still young. The DVDs are by the same people who make VeggieTales, and I heard that kids of all ages, and even adults, love it!



They are super fast about shipping the prize to me too, so I wouldn’t be surprised if they send out orders quickly as well.

I Won: Beyond Bath Time

I have a “series” of posts to send some linky love to sites where I have won things from giveaways. I’ll feature a site and item every time I win something.


It was awhile since I had gotten around to visiting a lot of the Company Girls for Coffee, but I did get a chance to stop at a few blogs this past week. One of the blogs was Leah Atha’s blog. She was having a giveaway for Beyond Bath Time by Erin Davis. So it was a 2-for-1 deals because I was just passing by to leave a comment, but I also got to enter for the giveaway. 🙂 Remember how Kara won the Cultivation Generation since she was the only commenter? Well, that’s what happened. Sounds good to me. Thanks Leah for the giveaway! I look forward to reading the book.

8 In-Home Dates

At MOPS there is a raffle basket at the meetings to raise money for scholarship for moms to attend meetings. I usually never remember to buy the tickets, but I decided to buy some for the 8 in-home dates that one of the mentor moms put together. Ha! Lo and behold, I won!

I am looking forward to doing this in-home dates, as it is tricky (and sometimes costly) to get out for a date all the time.

So we just finished up the Date Night Challenge, and I can’t wait to unwrap some of these dates and see what’s in store for us. Have you had a creative date lately? Tell me about it.

– Joyce

P.S. If you can also lift up some prayers for the mentor mom who made this “basket”, that would be great. Her husband recently had a heart attack. He just got moved out of ICU and back home this past Friday.

I Won: Homeschooling Gifted and Advanced Learners

I won Homeschooling Gifted and Advanced Learners from Milk and Cookies blog. Mmm, I’m not sure if I would label Melody as either of these things, but I think she is ahead of her peers if she is reading 2nd-3rd grade level books, right? We’ll see what this book has to offer.

I Won: iTunes Giftcard

A friend from my youth group days (just yesterday, right 😉 right…) started her makeup business, Regarding Makeup, a year ago in October. She had a huge giveaway contest for the whole month.

I was really going for the makeup lesson because I didn’t own any makeup until this year, so what do I know about putting on makeup? :p

Anyway, I entered her contest where she was giving away 10 prizes!!! I won the 5th/6th prize which was a $15 iTunes giftcard. Merry early Christmas Norm! :p hehe
