... a box of Halloween goodies and get out your shovels this blog is having a Halloween CONTEST ^o^...

In August, The Art of Darkness, a blog that is "devoted to the theory that every day should be Halloween", hit it's 2000th post and decided to have a little giveaway. I commented and thanks to random.org and my good fortune of being commenter #4 (which is a divisor of 8 and that's my favorite and lucky number), I won!

Yesterday a box arrived... a rather large box. I'm not putting down anyone's giveaway but I really thought I would receive a sticker or maybe some silly ol' vampire fangs and be perfectly happy with that... but OHMYWORD No! This was a serious box of awesomeness. Thank you, Cobwebs and Shadow Manor and The Art of Darkness! My little black heart just squeee'ed.

 (There are several little trinkets that are in the bottom of the box that you can't see... but yay! YAY!)

The box has also inspired me. It seems like my favorite blogs either have contests or some sort of assignments, and I'm just over here smelling the roses in the cemetery. And Halloween is coming up, so I should have a giveaway too!

Here's the contest! And it is ridiculous because ridiculous things make me laugh.
  1. Create a post with some sort of reference to a shovel. Preferably you should have a shovel in the picture somehow. That's right! Ha ha it's both garden and cemetery related AND you can even write, "I DIG..." just like my little skeleton artwork I entitled, "I dig your heart" which now that I look at it should be "I dig my heart"... but anyway, back to the contest rules that I'm making up as I go along because this is the first contest.
  2. Link your post to my Halloween post. I don't have any HTML coding to offer because I'm just not that fancy.
  3. Write a comment with your post link on the Halloween post so that I know where to look. 
  4. Because it's a Halloween contest, it's due on Halloween! October 31st before midnight. You have 31 days!
I'll have my fella judge just to be fair... AND since I only have a handful of followers with maybe only two people likely to participate in this ridiculous Halloween ***Shovel*** Contest, if you participate, you're probably going to win!!! What will you win? Oh, I don't know but it will be pretty amazing!
