What to Select?

Today’s focus is on you (the readers of this blog) and a chance to win a gift certificate from an online store that features everything from bookcases to lights to cookware to pet supplies to jewelry to, well you get the picture.

Alexandria at csnstore.com contacted me recently about doing a giveaway. That’s when I posted a question about it here and for the most part, everyone liked the idea of a gift certificate over a specific item being won.

So here’s the deal: I have a $60 gift certificate that will go to one lucky winner (sorry, only residents of the U.S. and Canada). The certificate can be used at csnstores.com with the winner selecting what they really want.

Here are just a few items to browse:
* A bookshelf to hold all of your favorite books.
* A lamp to read by at night.
* A pet bed for that faithful four-legged companion.
* A baking dish so you can try out that new recipe.

Now to enter, just leave a comment on this post between now and 8 p.m. (EST) on Sunday, June 20, and complete this sentence, “The closet door ajar drew Lori’s attention causing her to scream when ……..”

By completing the sentence I’ll know you want to be enter in the contest. Be sure to leave your e-mail address if it’s not included in your profile. The winner will be selected using Random.org.

Today’s post is short, but my way of saying thanks for dropping by. Have a great Monday as it’s the start of a new week with lots of possibilities in store if you’re open to them.
