Life Is Like A Box of Chocolates

I am so excited to be involved in this giveaway, because I don't think anyone else will be giving this away. I live in France and will be coming back to the US soon, so I need to stock up on gifts for some friends and family. I had a trip to the "Best Chocolate Store in the World"- La Maison du Chocolate planned for next week, so I thought I'd pick up a box for one lucky winner. I have special mail privileges, so I will be able to send it quickly also.

To win a wonderful medium-size box of chocolates, please just enter a comment below (don't be anonymous or I won't be able to get in touch with you) and we'll have the drawing at the end of the week. Friday evening (midnight here, 6 pm Eastern), I'll put the name of every commenter in a jar and have either my husband or daughter pick one. I'll post the winner here and contact you to find out where to ship it. But even if you don't win, please stop by from time to time! Maybe I'll have another giveaway if I get a lot of comments!

Just a reminder... this is completely free! And no, Aunt C, E, Mom or J, you cannot win if you are part of my family or friends (but of course my new "blog" friends can win). So here we go!
Go see Rocks In My Dryer for more Giveaways...
******

Sorry that I wasn't more crafty with my giveaway. I see some great ones, with homemade cards, bracelets, blankets, etc. I've been doing so much "crafting" this week, that I'm exhausted. I'm finally out of my baby haze and I've been trying to catch up on my own projects....

like Scrapbooking!









and making cork boards out of the 600+ corks I've been given. I promise that only about 50 of those corks are ours (okay, maybe more like 100)...







I've even found the wonderful grape, barrel, and wineglass charms online that I'll superglue to thumbtacks... I'm so excited to give these to all my friends before we leave France in a few months.
So, please, comment and maybe you'll win!

I had 3 children in Germany, and I know how fun it is to have a language barrier in the hospital! I knew some German, but my "nurses" were Austrian Nuns who spoke a different dialect and couldn't understand my English accented German. It was great, especially when I fainted, lol.

We all here said we would love to be able to taste it, because looking was showing how much care was given to each and every chocolate.

Have fun drawing the winner!
