Where Women Create - Giveaway

Pictured is just one of the giveaways.
I admit that I, Edna, had not heard of the WhereWomenCreate magazine until I read a post by fellow Etsyian PunkiePies on Twitter, where she stated that she had just received her latest copy, and left a link to the magazine. I then went and took a look at the magazine to realize that they are having a giveaway; and I absolutely love the stories in the magazine.

We missed out on the last giveaway, but, for those who would like to participate, is in time for this one. The expiration date is Monday Nov. 16 at midnight MST. The magazine is giving away 5 prizes. Click on this link to go and participate if you would like to: WhereWomenCreate.

1,561 comments on ONE post, and we might be to late to win.

The photo shows just one of the giveaways.
I was blogging today and clicked on a blog mainly because of the name, Canton. There is a Canton, Georgia, north of Atlanta, therefore out of curiousity, I clicked to learn whether the blogger was from Canton, Georgia (she's actually from Canton, Connecticut).

But what really dropped my jaws was that when I looked at her comment section, I noticed that she had 1, 561 comments on ONE post. Of course, I double checked to make sure that I was seeing what I was seeing. (I had only looked at the photos in that post). I then scrolled to the page top to read and find out why so many people were commenting.
That's when I realized that the author was having a giveaway. Though the deadline is upon us/has passed, I felt that others would like to know about this story.
