giveaway 50: jewelry roll

ok here's the giveaway for having hit the 50 followers mark a while ago. its the jewelry roll i wrote about and took many more pictures of: here. i offered it on facebook to my germanophile best friend marisa, but she didn't reply, so off of my dining room table and straight to one of you it goes.

ways to enter (one entry per):

1. leave a comment on this post telling me the place you would most love to transport your jewelry to (as in on vacation or something)
.
2. only for non followers: become a follower of this blog officially and leave me another comment saying you did and apologizing for only stepping out of the shadows for your own selfish profit
.
3. only for current followers (feel free to become a follower first and then do this for an extra entry)-leave another comment that says which putapuredukes blog post was your favorite of all time (yes, i have asked for this before, but now i'm bribing you)
.
4. i can't imagine anyone would want it this bad but for another entry (or a few: one for each linkback), blog, tweet or facebook about this giveaway, linking back to here and leave a comment for each time you do.
.
i will randomly select a winner on next wednesday morning 3/3/10. so there.
.
*and since lena asked, i will come up with some sort of referral system for current followers who bring in new followers. maybe a hand sewn-something for every 2 or 3 referrals. we'll see. how about someone actually accomplish a referral first and then we'll deal with it.

  4. I'll take it! Our vacation list for next year includes Hawaii and Quebec, although the next place I honestly imagine "traveling" is labor-and-delivery in a few months. It's a whopping 3.5 miles away- does that count??

  5. I want to take it to Montego Bay from June 1-8, 2010... it will hold important matrimonial jewelry :-)

  6. I would most like to take it on a weekend away with my husband, location irrelevant. I would also like to have it as an excuse to diversify my scanty jewelry collection.

  7. And I have 2 favorite posts... One was Magic: To Not Just Survive and one was when you explained your hyperthyroidism... I like it when you's bein' real, but I can't find where that one is.

  8. A now official follower here.....though I fall in the 'stalker follower' category previously! So, while we don't "technically" know each other personally we do through persons once or twice removed so in such a way we could be friends, right??!! I have a 4 1/2 month old and really love the posts about J-bug, I get an idea of some of what I having coming. Keep it up!

  9. Since the only jewelry i own is my engagement ring and my wedding ring (and thus always wearing), I will wait to be a follower until I really want better odds of winning. I see you already have 57 followers. You better get busy...

  10. I have a few things to say. They will come in a numbered list.
    1. I totally want the jewelry case. As you may remember, I asked for it (or one like it) before.
    2. I don't know how to "officially follow" a blog.
    3. No, I'm not stupid, I just don't know how to "officially follow" a blog.
    4. You totally know I read your blog, even though I don't "officially follow."
    5. Umm, I've totally brought in referrals, one of whom just posted.
    6. I would use the jewelry case on my european vacation this summer.

    ReplyDelete
  13. And also, your post on Judah's halloween costume was one of the funniest things I've ever seen. Here's the link, just so you know I really mean it ;)... http://www.putapuredukes.com/2009/11/ta-da_04.html

  14. I LOVE this print and I know this is a jewelry roll but I would love to have it as a small clutch purse. My favorite posts are the ones of Judah's birth of course! You need to finish it! ;-)

  15. It's time for another numbered list. Get excited.

    1. You called me a goober.
    2. The follow button I see is white, not yellow.
    3. I now "officially follow" your blog.
    4. I don't understand what my google dashboard is, or when I will see it again, but whatever.
    5. I also don't understand the weird s thing in front of my name in my google account. I didn't put it there.

  16. 1) I think you are brilliant!
    2) I would take this with me everywhere and show it off to everyone and then everyone would want to follow you. But for real, I will love it when I take it to Chicago this summer on my first roadtrip with MG!
    3) My favorite blog post was "of milk and (little) men.
    It was actually the post that made me follow you and the first comment I ever left! I loved it because it was exactly what i was going through at the time!
    4) pick me?
    5) I am going to share your link on fb, and retweet it on twitter, might even blog about it.
    6) i probably should have left six different comments instead of combining, but please still consider me!

  17. I would most love to transport my jewelry to Europe on a back packing trip. But I would definitely be taking it a) Atlanta b) Nashville, IN c) around Santiago and d) through Patagonia - in that order.

    [editor's note: lena tried to get 3 more separate comments out of these little tidbits, but since none of them really have to do with anything i asked for, but the ARE exceedingly hilarious, i have decided to give her one extra entry]

    2. I think that it is only fair that I win. I gave you tons of free JEWELRY and clothes a few weeks ago.

    3. If Kara gets to babysit Judah before I do I will have a nuclear meltdown.

    4. Put up your Dukes is my favorite blog of all time and I quite possibly could be it's number 1 fan! woop

  32. Finally following....have been a long time stalker! Knowing that this is not required of me----I would take it to Istanbul with me this summer!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I have to change my entry about where I would take the travel jewelry case. Earlier I said I planned to use it on my european vacation this summer. My plans have changed. I now plan to use it when I travel to be a student at Hogwarts. No one can possibly top that. I win.

    ReplyDelete
  34. One more entry for good measure:

    My favorite post was "top ten of the oh-oh's: #1." Really, I enjoyed all ten of those entries, but definitely #1 took the cake! Man, it was just amazing...


    Or, maybe my favorite post was your entry entitled "My Fredder" where you listed 95 things you love about your grandpa. And yes, that's an entry I read when I was, unbeknownst to you, stalking you on your blog. I thought it was an incredibly sweet tribute.

    So there. I'd like the travel jewelry case now. Thanks. Harry Potter Out.

  35. I L-O-V-E this blog and I want to win that jewelry roll so bad and take it somewhere tropical and warm. It's hard to narrow down my favorite post, but I did throughly enjoy your #10 and #9 of your favorite things of the "oh oh's". You all are so precious and awesome and I want that jewelry roll!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I hope I can follow the directions so that I don't get shunned...and also I'd really like to win it.

    1. I want to take it to Phuket, Thailand.

    2. My favorite blog post is "9.25.2009, happy ever after?"
    Honorable mentions to "10.08.2009, the unbearable heaviness of being (keight)" for the honesty, and "11.03.2009, handel says what?" for the cleverness.

    one of the best was the one you did for Father's Day...that was AWESOME!!! Second fav was how you feel about marriage and your honest feelings. Third is anything about Judah, and fourth is Jesse's description of Judah's birth and your labor.

  38. I totally get another post- just linked back to your giveaway!

  39. ahhh! I almost missed it! I really want that beautiful roll... I will take it everywhere I go! Especially home to atl this summer to visit 4 beautiful new babies... 2 i've only seen pictures of & 2 who aren't born yet! I'm so proud of you and your blogging awesomeness! And, Can you send me info on how to be an official follower?

    ReplyDelete
  40. I'm trying to be "official"... I have an account, but it won't let me follow you AND i've spent an hour of my life trying to get it to! So, as a semi-official follower I would like to tell you some of my faves...

    When you got your first sewing machine. How you wrote about my family-in-laws was just magnificent! I'm so glad that granny & aunt Jo helped you get started, so... Don't I get something hand made to show your appreciation of your humble beginnings?! I mean, I'm family?! :)

    I love the posts about labor. I love how jesse writes about you. I love that y'all are in love through it all.

    Which brings me to the one that will forever be in my heart... the one about your marriage. I cried. I prayed. I've been there. I didn't comment because I never knew how to. I love your honesty, sincerity, humility, when you write about Jesus, when you write about the people in your life that you adore. I love that you make me laugh out loud & even more because you make nate laugh out loud- that my friend is hard to do! I love your perfectly eloquent use of a good curse word! And I especially love your captions!

    Bonus: favorite caption "pantless ice fisherman". Love ya!

  41. I am a follower now! I've been reading it for a long time but now I am official!! :) And I would probably take it to Savannah with my roommate because that is the only vacation I will be taking anytime soon!
