Lots of blog giveaways ending today...

My blog giveaway list just got a LOT shorter this morning! There ar several good ones that end today.

Mommy PR has 2 ending today:
A set of bamboo sheets and pillowcases from Bedding Superstore. I've read a lot of amazing information about bamboo sheets - did you know that they're naturally anti-bacterial and THREE times more breathable than cotton? That means you'll be warmer in the winter, and cooler in the summer :) I own a bamboo duvet cover and I can tell you from my personal experience that these are soft and silky, and have a slight luster to them. I love sleeping under my duvet cover, I can't imagine sleeping on bamboo sheets!

Winner's choice of Serta mattress (any style, any size) up to $2,000 which also includes delivery, set-up and removal of your old mattress. Can you believe it? Serta mattresses are top-of-the-line with warranties up to 30 years. The best part is you get to shop this locally from an authorized Serta dealer.... so, go to your local Serta dealer, tell them your sleep habits (for example, I prefer a firm mattress and I'm a side sleeper so my mattress preference would be different than someone who sleeps on their back or likes a soft mattress), try out the floor models, and pick out the one you like best.

Thanks, Mail Carrier is offering one of their readers a Keurig B60 Special Edition Brewer. Anyone who knows me knows I love my Keurig, and I hate not being able to drink coffee at work. If I'm lucky enough to win this, it's going in my office, along with a case of Donut Shop coffee! I love that this model allows you to brew 6, 8 or 10 ounces so I can vary the strength if I decide to bring other coffees to work, and the reservoir allows you to brew several cups of coffee before refilling. This is actually the same Keurig I have at home and I love it! Granted, it could be a bit smaller and quieter but that won't bother me at work - it'll be worth it to FINALLY be able to enjoy my Keurig coffee at the place where I need the caffeine the most!

Lastly, Survey Junkie is offering one of their readers a Parazul Classic Bag in beige. From the sponsor's website: Parazul is a fresh, exciting new line of handbags and accessories, inspired by the beautiful vacation destinations where the items are sold. I love the classic styling of their bags. Although my favorite has to be the Scarf bag (either in White or Navy, with a beige/navy scarf and pink hibiscus flower charm) the Classic Bag is gorgeous as well. Whoever wins this will get a lot of use out of it for years to come!

Win Your Choice of Ceiling Fan from Fanimation and Mommy Living The Life of Riley - What Would You Chose?

One very lucky Mommy Living The Life of Riley! will definitely be living the life when they win their choice of fan courtesy of Fanimation!

Mommy Living the Life of Riley! $399 Fanimation Fan of YOUR CHOICE Giveaway

All of their fans are STUNNING! They have a variety of styles and finishes to suit everyone's tastes. My taste is more traditional (warm wood tones, darker metal finishes) It was tough narrowing down my selection, but I think I'm sticking with the one I fell in love with on the first day I saw the giveaway posted.

I'd pick model LB230VZ venetian bronze fan assembly with Cairo purple finish custom wood blades and dual amber glass bowl light kit. *sigh* Isn't it gorgeous?

I love the elongated oval shape of the blades, and the amber light with all the dark bronze metal. This would look stunning in my living room (and the best part, I'd actually have an overhead light in there! I can't believe they installed a ceiling fan without a light kit.)

My living room is very large, so the 56" sweep would be in keeping with the scale of the room. The tone of the Cairo wood blades would also be in balance with the other wood tones in the room. I also love that in addition to 3 forward speeds it also has 3 reverse speeds - most ceiling fans I've seen only have 1 reverse speed (and it's never fast enough!). I actually do use our ceiling fan in the winter (in reverse) so this feature is important to me.

I'd take the fan that's currently in the living room and put that in my son's bedroom, since it's a perfectly good ceiling fan and he can use it.

Fanimation Fans ~ Win the Fan of YOUR CHOICE ~ ARV $399!

This giveaway ends today, and there's tons of ways to earn entries.

Giveaway from The Original Scrapbox - The Paper Tower - 10 Blogs

The Original Scrapbox has teamed up with 10 different blogs to offer one reader the opportunity to win The Paper Tower. Links to all the blog posts are found at the bottom of this post.

*sigh* Isn't it pretty? I know they call it The Paper Tower, but for me it would be the PERFECT quilt square organizer. I've got probably 5-6 quilts all cut out, stored in grocery bags in the bottom of my closet (plus a ton of miscellaneous FQ's that I'll use for random things).

This would allow me to organize all the squares that have quilt homes (including the denim and flannel one I've been promising my son for years, and the memory quilt from his old clothes), and I could organize the FQs by color family. In the door, I could store threads, embroidery yarn, rotary cutters, buttons, chalk, needles, and all the other items I use.

In case you can't tell - I LOVE this! I've also got the perfect spot for it. It comes in the following finishes: Black Bead Board, Vanilla Bead Board, Black Raised Panel, Vanilla Raised Panel and Knotty Alder (a beautiful medium-toned wood finish, this is the one I would pick). The Paper Tower includes 17 - 12"x12"x3" totes, 17 - 3"x12"x3" totes as well as 10 velcro zipper pouches. That's 34 totes, PLUS the 10 zipper pouches - so much organization! I'm giddy just THINKING about it!

This is how the giveaway will work - each blogger will select one preliminary giveaway winner, who will win a prize package detailed in their blog post (some blogs are offering different prizes), and more importantly they'll also win a golden ticket, AKA one entry into the grand prize drawing for The Paper Tower in the winner's choice of finish.

After the 10 preliminary prize winners have been selected, one of them will win The Paper Tower. So, if you don't win a preliminary giveaway you're out of luck, but if you do... you have a 10% chance of winning the grand prize. You can enter on every blog if you want to maximize your chances - that's what I'm doing! Giveaway ends 10-14

This is the list of 10 blogs who are all co-hosting this giveaway:
