Alaska Giveaway- Pt. 1!

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED

You guys excited?! I know I am and have been DYING to start these giveaways for WEEKS! :D

So here we go!

Our first Alaskan Giveaway! (that sounds like I'm giving away an Alaskan... No... just a trinket... just to clarify)

First up is this awesome key chain and button set.
*NOTE* I'm not really sure why it looks like my picture has a heartbeat... ignore that*


Photobucket
These come from the antlers of Reindeer (keychain) and Moose (buttons). But do not worry, no animals were harmed in the making of these! The man who makes them sends his grand kids out to gather antlers each year when the animals loose them, then carves them into wonderful things. :)

I think that the key chain would actually make an awesome necklace! Just an idea!

If you would like to be the proud owner of these items here's what you have to do:

1. You MUST be a follower of Gentri Lee using Google Friend Connect
2. You must answer this Alaska trivia question CORRECTLY!

Ready??

What year did Alaska become a State? AND Who did the United States buy it from?

Those who do both of these items correctly will be entered into the drawing. This giveaway will end one week from today- August 9th!

P.S. Cheating is totally allowed! Phone a friend, look it up! Use a lifeline! Whatevs!

BONUS ENTRY!!
As long as you do the mandatory entry you can also do this one!
Blog, Tweet, Facebook, Google+ (still not sure what that one is, even though I have an invite sitting in my inbox), WHATEVER about these giveaways and leave a link for your extra entry!!

P.S. Make sure you check out or blogger of the week- Laynah!!

P.P.S. Make sure you come back tomorrow for giveaway number 2!
