I mentioned yesterday that in celebration of 2,500 posts and 5 years of blogging, I’m having a few days of giveaways.
A funny thing happened last Christmas….while doing some online shopping, I clicked on the “Today’s Deals” at Amazon.com, which I had never done before. I’m not sure why I did that day. But that day they had a Scotch Thermal Laminator on sale for $17. I’d been wanting a laminator and hadn’t taken time to research them, but thought this was a great price to try one out. So I ordered it.
My husband happened to see the same deal, and he ordered one for me for Christmas.
And somehow we ended up with a third one — we never did figure out which of us accidentally ordered it or how.
So now I have three laminators when I only need one. Jim said I could use the extra two to give away on my blog if I wanted to, and they’ve been sitting in my sewing room waiting for the opportunity.
You might ask, what can you do with a laminator? I wanted one to cover bookmarks — it makes them firmer, provides a nice straight edge for those who like to use them to underline, and helps them last longer. Teachers use them to make their visuals and bulletin board items stronger and longer-lasting. Some other great ideas are here and here.
I’m afraid this giveaway has to be restricted to the USA only. I was checking around the US Post Office site to see if maybe I could include Canada, but it looks like it would cost $70 to ship there — way more than I can spend.
So if you’d like to enter for the drawing of a Scotch Thermal Laminator and have a USA address, leave a comment below. I’ll choose two winners using random.org next Tuesday morning, Nov. 15.
Entries are now closed. Congratulations to Sherri and Cheri.
