Here’s How You Can Enter

The point of this giveaway (besides giving you a huge prize for being an awesome supporter of my work!) is to spread the word about some of my favorite projects on this blog. That’s why you have loads of entries available to you. Here they all are:

  • Pin Me! I want to make sure people know about all the work I’ve been putting into my 365 Ways to Wear Crochet project so you get one entry for every single picture you pin to Pinterest from any of these posts. I’ve done a post every day so far this year with multiple pictures on each post and you get one entry for every pic you pin this week. You can find all of the posts here. There’s also already a board showing one photo from each of those posts so you can repin those if you prefer; the board is here.
  • Facebook Shares! I also want to get some attention for my Designer Crochet Project and my Crochet Artist Profiles. You can share any and all of the posts from these two categories to your Facebook. Once again, you’ll get one entry for every single post that you share.
  • Stumble It! I want more people to be able to find me through StumbleUpon. You can find me here and give a Stumble review to any of the posts that you find there on my profile. You get one entry for each post of mine there that you stumble.
  • Tweet Tweet. Tweet any or all of the individual lists on this list of 25 lists. Just click on the one you want to share and Tweet it. One entry for each one that you share.
  • And a G+ Option. Share any of the crochet interviews that I’ve done with your G+ circles. One entry per share.
  • Blog Me. I’ll give 20 additional entries to any bloggers that add my homepage as a link in the blogroll on their blog’s sidebar. I’ll give 15 additional entries to any blogger who does a post of ten reasons to visit Crochet Concupiscence with a link back to the blog. I’ll give 10 additional entries to anyone who blogs about this giveaway this week with a link back to this post.

Make Sure You Follow These Rules

  • Every single item you share should link back to the Crochet Concupiscence post that it comes from regardless of which social site you’re using.
  • Leave me a comment that tells me how many entries you get and a link to your profile so I can double-check the number of entries. For example, your comment might say “I pinned 100 photos – you can check it at my Pinterest account which is
  • You can leave multiple comments if you do this on multiple days. For example, on Monday you might leave a comment saying that you pinned 10 photos and then on Tuesday you can come back and say you pinned eight more. However, I don’t require individual comments for each post. You can tell me how many entries you get in the most convenient way for you as long as I can check on it.
  • Entries will be accepted through midnight, Friday April 13th PST. Unfortunately due to the size of the winning package I can’t accept international entries unless you are willing to pay for shipping. The winner will be selected using Random Generator and will be announced on the blog on Sunday April 15th.

Good luck!

    I’ve been busy, but you know I’m still new at a lot of these social networks. I tried posting a lot more than I actually did. Anyway. I know I Pinned 3 of your 365 ways to wear crochet. I pinned 6 of your art/designers and and Liked all 6 for FB (Not sure if that’s what you meant for us to do). Definitely put 1 on facebook. Tweeted 5 of your list. Also tweeted about your blog as it wouldn’t let me put any more of your list up right now?! I also followed you on FB and Twitter, and friend req. you. (I don’t have a blog (yet), so I thought the tweet would help. Wow, not much for 3 hours on internet. But I found lots of interesting things. (Most of my pins are copied frrom you).
    Everything should be under Joyannerose. Happy Birthday again.
