First Giveaway of the New Year!

Happy 2009! Are you ready for more fun and fabulous giveaways this year?



I'm kicking off the year with a giveaway you are going to really love. Did you see my previous post about Bruce Littlefield's appearance on CBS? He did a fabulous job giving tips on clever ways to display your photographs.

Bruce and I decided to do a fun giveaway that ties in with his appearance.



One lucky winner will receive an autographed copy of Bruce's book Garage Sale America AND Bruce will PERSONALLY work magic with one of your favorite photographs! (Maybe one of the tips he offered in his appearance? You'll have to wait and see!)



To enter, simply check out the video of Bruce's appearance on CBS's The Early Show by clicking here. Then, come back here and leave a comment letting me know what your favorite tip is (you can always comment over at CBS, but only comments left on this post will count towards the contest....this contest is in no way sponsored by, connected with, or endorsed by CBS).

You're on the honor system, so please no "cheating" by copying answers. Besides, you'll be missing out on all the fun if you don't watch Bruce's fabulous ideas (and he's SO much fun to watch!)

You can receive additional entries by doing one or all of the following:

~Twitter with a link to this post. Then leave a separate comment here with your Twitter link.

~Blog about this contest with a link to this post AND to Bruce's appearance. Then leave a separate comment here with the link to your post.

Be sure that there is an email address for you that I can find, or your entry will have to be disqualified.

By entering, you automatically agree to all the rules and disclaimers listed here.

Deadline to enter is 11:59 EST, Wednesday, January 14, 2009. Winner will be selected at random using Random.org, posted here and contacted by email. Good luck!
