A Winning Day in the HLF Household

Count today as one of the best Mondays in recent history for yours truly. Jill over at The Prairie Homestead recently celebrated her one-year blogoversary with a week of giveaways, and I found out this morning that I won two dozen Tattler Reusable Canning Lids. This is perfect for me since I'm just getting into canning, so I'm excited to try them out.

A few weeks ago I entered a contest to come up with a slogan for the new Magnum Work Pro Ultra WPi CT composite safety toe boots and I won! You can see my winning slogan here. I won a pair of the boots, which I will put to good use with my job.

This is just another example of how cool the blogosphere is. My blog is centered on emergency preparedness as well as (or you could say, particularly) gardening, but I subscribe to a number of blogs about other topics that interest me, such as photography. It was TexWisGirl at The Run*A*Round Ranch Report who blogged about the contest, which turned me on to Brian's photography at HeyBJK Outdoors. I'm so thankful for the opportunity I have to get to know and learn from others with similar interests that the blogosphere provides.

I've won two preparedness-related books, a Sport Berkey water bottle, and now this giveaway and contest. All the things I've won are items I either couldn't or wouldn't have bought for myself. Soon I will have to host a giveaway myself to pay it forward.


  1. Your slogan ROCKED! It made a fantastic ad for Magnum! Congrats on winning the boots!!! :)

  2. Thanks TexWisGirl! I really liked the ad, too.

  3. Congratulations, Kris! Your tagline and that ad really look good! I hope the boots serve you well. Thanks for the kind mention!

  4. You bet, Brian. I enjoy your blog!

  5. I am new to your blog but I am enjoying it!!
