I love giveaways!

Close friends know that I really do have “good luck.” Not that I truly believe in luck, but the point is that I usually have a very good chance of being picked for freebies or having my name drawn in a giveaway. I have no idea why- but I have been blessed with many cool, useful things through blog/Twitter/Facebook/local giveaways!

I’d like to highlight two websites that were kind enough this week to award me gift cards that are going to be very useful!

Bongga (rhymes with “congga”): a Filipino expression meaning glamorous, outrageous, fabulous. There’s a Bongga Mom — part Bette Midler, part Nicole Kidman, part Martha Stewart — in every mom. Me? A Bongga Mom? With 3 kids, no money, and last year’s jeans, I’m still working on it.

Bonggamom is filled with giveaways, contests, photos, and cute posts about her and her children’s daily fun.

She awarded me with a $50 gift certificate to Tiny Prints, which is one of the most adorable online print boutiques I have yet to come across. I’m looking forward to ordering some cards- I’m just having a hard time deciding which ones to choose!

  • Photofocus (with Scott Bourne)

Photofocus is a one-stop online media site for serious amateur and emerging professional photographers interested in learning more about photography. The bulk of its blog posts are tips, tricks, news and reviews, aided by interviews with prominent photographers, educational screencasts and a very active community of engaged readers who regularly comment.

What I appreciate the most, however, is Scott’s daily Twitter updates. He frequently hosts random (and I mean random) giveaways and posts helpful photographic resources. And the best part? All you have to do to be eligible for giveaways is follow him on Twitter! (Hey… while you’re at it, follow me too!)
I got a tweet text today that let me know I had won a $100 gift certificate to White House Custom Color! WHCC is one of my favorite image labs and I’m looking forward to purchasing a few gallery samples for my portrait business, Picturesque Memphis.

Combine these wins with a $100 gift card to anywhere in the Carriage Crossing Shopping Center, and I’ve had a pretty good week! =)
