You Guys Are The Freaking Coolest! "Thank You" Giveaway! (CLOSED)

Once upon a time about 2 months ago I was feeling blue, disconnected, melancholy, unmotivated, etc. etc. etc. synonyms for "crappy". So I started this blog. My amazing friends Megan and Kate agreed to contribute blog posts which made me even more excited. I wanted a place where I could pour my creativity, energy, and love for parenting my son into something that was mine. I guess I needed a hobby I could be passionate about and the only thing I'm over-the-top passionate about is my family and being a mom to Otto.

When I started this, I just wanted to connect with other parents and learn from them and share with them. I never dreamed how welcoming the blog/Twitter community would be! In two short months I feel like I've made so many amazing new friends! I've also become addicted to reading all of your blogs!


So to say "Thank You! Muah! Muah! Muah! Muah!" I'm doing this giveaway of a pack of Crayola Bathtub Markers and a 4-pack of Mr. Clean Magic Erasers. There is a little story behind this - one of my first blog posts was a scathing review of Crayola Bathtub Markers and about how now no matter how hard I tried I couldn't get the stupid stains off of my bathtub. Well, I tried one more thing and it worked - you guessed it: Mr. Clean Magic Eraser! They don't use that word "magic" lightly!

How to Win the Markers and Marker Stain Remover Set:

Entry is super easy, after all, this is a Thank You giveaway. There is NO MANDATORY entry and there are lots of ways to enter. Make sure to leave a separate comment for each entry!

I WANT BATHTUB MARKERSSSSSSSS!! Kick that rubber duckey to the curb! And then, Mister Clean on the side??? WINNER!!! sdinthepdx@gmail.com

Amy said...

I just got Alexander some bath crayons a couple weeks ago. Our tub looks like it's been graffitied. I still haven't attempted to remove it. I wonder if those Mr Clean erasers will do it.

Lindsey Muth said...

@Anonymous I so know who you are and I LOVE you!!!

@Amy I would be shocked if they didn't! For real! I've yet to have the Magic Eraser fail me :)

Random Comment: I'm watching my husband chase flies around the house with a fly swatter. It's not unlike watching a child chase seagulls at the beach. Very amusing.

I've been wanting to give these erasers a try. Would like to see if they also work on the regular washable crayons. There's something about the magenta color...I cannot get it completely off my walls!

I would so love to win this. I've been wanting to try the bathtub markers and the magic erasers have been a god send when the girls sneak crayons. When the twins are done coloring I always think I've gotten all the crayons back until a piece of artwork suddenly appears on a wall-they are fast but these magic erasers erase just as fast.

So I saw "bath markers" and thought "cool!" Then I read that you had hard time cleaning them off and I thought "forget it!" Then I read that magic eraser worked and I thought "true that."

Bring on the markers!
