Giveaway for the 2016 Tolkien Blog Party

I'm giving away five prizes this year, and here they are!  Five "thong" bookmarks that I made for this happy occasion:

#1  Hobbit Door, Sting, and the Arkenstone

#2  Smaug, some treasure, and Sting

#3  Map of the Shire, Hobbit door, and the word "Grow"

#4  Sting, the word "seek," and a map to the Lonely Mountain

#5  Stone that looks like a Hobbit door, Sting, and the word "courage"

This giveaway is open WORLDWIDE.  I'm mailing these all myself, and they're small, so no matter where you live in this wide world, you are welcome to enter.

The main way to gain entries is to participate in the party, in other words, to copy the questions I posted (here) and answer them on your own blog, then add your post's link to the Mister Linky widget at the bottom of that official party kick-off post. But that isn't required! You can also earn entries by telling me your prize choices and by commenting elsewhere on my blog.  I do my best to match winners with their choice of prizes, but that doesn't always work out -- that's why I ask for your top two choices.

This giveaway runs through the end of Friday, September 23. I will draw the winners on Saturday, September 24 and post the names of the winners that day, as well a notify them by email.

PLEASE make sure your information for the giveaway widget includes your current email address so that if you win a prize, you'll get the email informing you that you won! If you don't reply to my email by Saturday, October 1, I will choose another winner and award your prize to them instead.

  3. Oh, Hamlette! These are just stunning! O.O I LOVE LotR! What could be better than a LotR bookmark to mark my place in my favorite book?

    ACK. Okay, so it's REALLY hard to choose...but I guess I'll say my two favorites are #2 and #4. But I'd honestly be happy with any of them. ^_^

    This is going to great fun! I'm sooo excited about Tolkien Week!!!

  4. Ohhh, YAY! These are so beautiful...I'm having a really hard time listing only two favorites...okay. I'll say #3 and #4. Great job making them!! They're so perfect. :)

  5. Oh, these are really swell! :D I like #4 and #5 the best, I think. :)

  6. These are BEAUTIFUL, Hamlette! My favorites are #5 and #3

    (by the way, how do we include our email in the giveaway widget? I was slightly confused :D)

    1. Savannah, if you click on that little button in the right-hand corner of the widget (it has three parallel lines), it will tell you if you're signed in or not. You can always just hit "log out" and log back in if you're not sure what email address it has for you.

  7. Hmmm, I think #3 and #4 are my favorites. They're all so intricate and pretty!

  8. Oh, and I assume that participating in the games through commenting counts for the "comment elsewhere" entry?

    1. Meredith, yup! I usually have a "participate in games" option, but since I only have two games this year, I just decided to make it more open this year.

  9. I especially like #3 and #4, but I'd be happy with any of them! Fabulous job. :)

  10. Ok, these are adorable!!! I love the little door!! I also love maps so my favorites in order are #3, 1, and 4.

  11. 4 and 5 are my favorites. They're all so gorgeous though!

  12. I absolutely love them ALL, but I will confine myself to numbers 4 and 5. Thanks!
