Announcement- An Event with a $35 Giveaway!

I am so excited that I am going to host my first event in the blogging world. I have participated in a lot of events before and have won two of them with CSN stores gift cards. Have u guys shopped at their stores? They are amazing and have such a vast collection.You can literally buy anything and everything under one roof whether its bakeware, gadgets, small & big appliances to flat panel TV stands. I am enjoying my mixer and panini maker that I bought from their site and plan to shop more. :)

When CSN stores contacted me with an interest to sponsor a giveaway through my blog, I immediately accepted it. Why wouldn't I want to host a giveaway for my dear readers when I know the excitement of winning the same? :)

Instead of urging you all to comment or become my follower ( which I believe you will become if you love my blog), I want you all to get creative, participate in the event. The winner will be chosen based on their creativity in cooking/baking and not by the random number generator.  My inlaws are visiting us here and both of them will be involved in the selection along with my husband.

Since Spring has just kicked in and brought this beautiful weather, I thought how about we chose the theme as "Spring"!!  I am sure we all imagine colors, flowers, beautiful leaves, freshly planted plants and veggies in the garden..right? So all you got to do is put your imagination to work and cook or bake anything that shows that Spring is here.....Bake anything in the color and shape of flower or leaves; anything vibrant, cook any spring favorite dishes, colorful pops to beautiful gorgeous looking desserts to cookies...there are so many things that you can do!

Event rules:

1. 2 entries per person are allowed. Archived entries can be used only if they are reposted with a new date and a link to this event.
2. Link you entry to this page.
3. Use of logo is mandatory.
4. Only vegetarian entries are allowed (eggs are fine)


5. Submit your entries to my email vbhutani03@gmail.com with the following details:

Your Name:
Blog:
Post title:
Post url:
Image: (size should not be more than 300 pixels)


I will post the roundup and the winner on 16th of March 2011. So get your creative juices together and start cooking/baking :)) Enjoy Spring :)
