10,000 Facebook Fan GIVEAWAY!

Tuesday, October 1, 2013
**CLOSED**

Let me tell you a tale....

Once upon a time...in a land off Route 66....there was a small but fair kingdom.  In this kingdom lived a queen...you might call her the Queen Bee because she loved bees....and baking.  She would make her humble cookies, cakes, pies and sweets, and post them to a magical ethereal place called...the internet.  And while there were many places her work could be found....There was one ethereal realm....called Facebook...that allowed thousands (let's just say 10,000) people from all over the world to come by and say "what up?".

Once fair day, the Queen thought to herself.... I should thank all those that say such nice things to me...they keep me making cookies.....they make me feel special and loved...

So she cast a proclamation across the lands.....

She would reward one such good person with a bounty of spendiferous treasures.....

Is splendiferous a real word???  Nevermind...it makes no difference in a make believe kingdom....I can make up any word I want...I'm the queen.

It's Give away time!!!

Ahem.... Many shops in the kingdom came forward with lovely things for which the fair queen could bestow.
And this is the part of the story where I tell you what your going to get if you win.  :) **joy**


Bake It Pretty



Bake It Pretty has agreed to give away a "surprise package" of cute cupcake liners and paper and baking accessories!  I buy liners from Bake it Pretty frequently because:

1.  They're beautiful
2.  They're grease proof and sturdy.....if you don't believe me check out my Instagram pic...



Yeah,.....that's a chocolate cupcake in a white liner and it's PERFECT.

3.  They have great prices
4.  They're super nice peeps.

I don't know what's in the box but they assured me it would be an awesome surprise!!  So if you win this, you will have to let me know..."WHAT'S IN THE BOX??!!"  Because they won't  tell me.....it super top secret.  Makes me with I could enter just to figure out what they're giving to the winner.

Seriously...you can't say "we will make it a surprise" to me and not expect me to torture myself about it.



Copper Gifts


Copper Gifts is giving away a $50 dollar Gift Card!!  You can buy some serious copper with that!  I have several Copper Gift Cutters....like the band-aid...and the scalloped shapes....
AND they're located like practically right next door to me in Kansas so....ya know....
ALSO Excellent customer service and very quick shipping!  So grateful that they wanted to be so generous!



The Cookie Countess

Hillary aka The Cookie Countess (of the Royal Sugar Court...yeah I just made that up) has graciously said she will give the winner any 2 stencils from her Etsy site of the winners choosing!  EEEEEEEK!
Awe man!  I just went over there to get a link for her shop and took a look and GEEE she has some AWESOME looking stencils in her shop right now!!

Like Whaaaaaaat?!


If only I didn't have to pay bills....stupid water and electricity....

Oh um... I mean taxes....wait I'm the queen....uh SERVANTS!  Yes...if only I didn't have to pay all these servants....

Moving on.

I don't even have any of these yet because she's so dang popular she sells out of the ones I have my eye on all the time.  And it's because the stencils are AMAZING!!  I'm sure you've seen airbrush stencil backgrounds popping up everywhere...that's her stencils...no joke.  You want this!!



Ecrandal

Ok if any of you have EVER read like more than 2 posts on my blog you already know how IN LOVE with Ecrandal cutters I am....

I mean really.... check out my latest haul



And that's not even all of them from that shipment... I have more that wouldn't fit in the pic....

You could say I'm an addict.  They have the most unique shapes ever..and it's a family run company.  Eric and Jaime are TOPS.

No Joke.

Anyway!!  They are giving away 2 very special cutters appropriate for the season.  The mushroom and an acorn...all made in beautiful pristine shiny copper!  :)

**Pssst....go to their Facebook Page and look at the cover photo....those are some mighty pretty dresses....yessir...**



BRP Box Shop

I have been using boxes from BRP ever since I started cookie-ing.  Back then they had a smaller selection...some basic bakery boxes (we're talking about from the dawn of cookies....like 5 years ago or something...) but they were the best boxes around at the best prices.

Well here we are now...and it's all changed...

Because they're even better than before!!  The range of boxes they have to meet the demands of the cookie community is unmatched!!  Why?  Because they care.  Kip and Connie are super involved with the needs of their customers.  They LISTEN and create amazing creations that you could hardly call boxes because they're art!  Art meant to package ART!

And can I say generous??! Were any of you fortunate to be present at Cookie Con last year??  I mean...unicycle aside....the amount of free swag they gave away was amazing....

And it's no exception with this giveaway either.  They sent me 2 packages....one for me... (because I'm loved...and what can I say?....Momma gets swag) and one for the winner.

I wish you could have seen the faces on me and my husband when we opened that box....it was unreal!!  I couldn't even begin to list off or photograph what all was in that box....

But Connie gave it a shot.....let's just say, the winner will be receiving THIS!!


I mean honestly....I don't even think it's all in the pic....it's so many beautiful boxes....

I mean, see those big window boxes in the back??  I like HAVE to make a gingerbread house just to put in that box...seriously.


Karen's Cookies


Ok so I don't think I even really need to go into how awesome Karen and Mike are.  I mean...we all know it.  They created COOKIE CON for Pete's sake!  Not to mention their constant support and generosity to all of us in the cookie community.  They have been by our sides from the beginning holding our hand....and inventing the saran wrap trick...

Can't thank them enough for just existing.

And like the generous people they are, they have agreed to give away a gift certificate for $50 to spend at Karen's!



Awesome yes??!

Stock up on your Americolor and exclusive cutters from designers like SugarBelle and Cookie Crazie because it's all there!



Candy House

Ok now, I didn't ask Candy House to donate anything...they are a local business and in support of my local business I will purchase this prize on my own, but I felt that they deserved a spotlight because....
They're just plain awesome.

So A lucky winner will be receiving some treat's from our highly popular local confectionery!  The candies and sweets they make here are amazing!!



Perhaps some candy apples is your fancy?  Perhaps I will send some truffles or toffee??

I haven't decided yet!!

But sweets there shall be!!



That's a whole lotta stuff!!!

And on top of that I have some stuff of my own I want to give away....I'll just leave it at that for now....but I'll write a post about it later this week.  :)

 I'll be sending a pretty sizable box to this winner and yes there will ONLY BE ONE WINNER.

Now I know you desperately want to know how you can enter...

Well I'm not going to ask for likes or shares or tweets or anything like that.....I only ask for one thing...

In the kingdom of Ali Bee there has been much stress, anxiety, confusion, turmoil....and a brief war with the spider that was living on my kitchen window sill....from which we prevailed....but not without casualties...like my windowsill basil plant......

What this kingdom needs is a smile.

So tell me a story, a joke, a limerick...leave a smile or a nice comment.  And that will warm the hearts of the people of this fair kingdom....and cookies shall rain from the sky....with skittles...because there will be a rainbow my friends and I will taste that rainbow.....

And if you share the same happiness with my allies (that's the folks above giving away the free stuff)....that will surely bring sunshine to all the lands....and unite the kingdoms forever more...and a new reign of peace and prosperity will begin anew!!

.....

I may have been watching a little too much Merlin lately....

Anyway....each nice comment you make counts as another entry...so let me give you an example...

Entry#1 Ali Bee's (on Ali Bee's giveaway right here) - your the most beautiful unicorn in the universe and your poop smells like roses, sprinkles and rainbows.

Entry#2 Ali Bee's (on Ecrandal's Facebook page) You also are the most beautiful unicorn in the universe and your poop smells like roses, sprinkles and rainbows.

See there's two entrys...

And over here on this blog page it will look like this..

Ali Bee:  your the most beautiful unicorn in the universe and your poop smells like roses, sprinkles and rainbows.

Ali Bee: Ecrandal


So basically follow this link list:



And leave a message on their pages...then come back and leave a SEPARATE comment for those entries stating for whom you left a nice message for.  

Got it???  Good.

The tourney shall last a fortnight!.....no actually the giveaway will last 10 days!!  And will end on 10/10/2013 at 10:00PM!!

**See what I did there?  with all the 10's?  Your nice comment could be to tell me how incredibly clever I am for that.....or not.**


So remember!!

Leave a separate entry for each page you visit....the winner will be chosen at random....probably meaning that I will ask my daughter to pick a number between 1 and whatever and that will be it..

LET THE FATES DECIDE....yes I'm calling my 4 year old the fates...

I was helping in my son's 2nd grade class yesterday. When his group came to my table to work on their spelling work, I leaned over to him and asked him to tell me what word he was writing because I couldn't read his handwriting. He said," Where". Pointing to the word I said," There". He said," Where". Pointing harder on the paper (because I didnt want to embarrass either one of us) I answered," There". Once again his calm reply was "where". Frustrated I repeated the question again thinking that maybe, just maybe he didn't understand what I was asking him. Still the same answer. Finally I gave up and looked up at the other children at my table to move on. They were all looking at me quizzically. One little girl said, "The spelling word is "where".
I burst out laughing interrupting the whole class. Yep, baby, your momma is crazy!!
Thank you, Queen Allie Bee!! =)

Candy House. My name, I was born with, is Candy Apple. I suspect those apples and I would get along very well. Thank you for the generous give away, even if I don't get selected.
