Giggleswick Blog Hop Begins Now!!

Welcome to the 
1st Annual Giggleswick Halloween Blog Hop!

Starting Friday, Sept. 13th - Saturday, Sept. 21st

All 13 Lucky Winners will be announced 
on Wednesday, Sept. 25th!


13 Witches (Artists)
13 Prizes
13 Lucky Winners !!

Hi my name is LeeAnn Kress and I am the Artist here at Charmed Confections and one of the 13 Witches of Giggleswick.  I have been dubbed the Wicked Witch of the West.  They say that like it's a bad thing.  Truly, I am very sweet - with a Shoppe name like Charmed Confections how could I not be!

Below is a picture of my Giggleswick giveaway.  I am giving away one of my sweet Spider Bites.  This spider is made to look like a real cupcake, but it's rock hard.  Her legs are made out of polymer clay and look like twisted candy cane.  Don't try and eat her, she might just bite you back.  She is a true Charmed Confection!


To be entered into the drawing, you will need to hop to all 13 Witches blog sites and do Steps 1 and 2 below:

Step 1 -- Follow this blog.  Look for the blue Google "Join this Site" link on my right hand side bar of this blog.  Scroll down to find it & click to join this blog.  If you are already a follower of mine, go to Step 2!

... next ...

Step 2 -- Leave a comment below this post telling me that you are a new follower or that you are already following my blog (if you are).

PLEASE NOTE:  To be eligible for the drawings, you need to visit all 13 blog sites, follow them through Google, and leave a comment on each site.  If you fail to follow through on your 13 blog visits, your name will not count in the drawing.  You must visit all 13 blog sites and do Steps 1 and 2 on each site.

On Wednesday, Sept. 25th the winners will be announced.  Please check back, on any of the blog sites, as a list of winners and their prizes will be posted.  As a participant, it is your responsibility to check back to see if you have won.  We will try and get a hold of you through Google, but sometimes our emails go into a spam folder.  Best to check back and see if you have won!  Best of luck to you!!

Below is a list of blog sites and links for you to follow.  If you have already done Steps 1 and 2 here.  Hop to the next witches' site!
