2) Go to The Link Shoppe Facebook page and “like” it (if you haven’t done so already). Double check to make sure you “liked” the actual Facebook page, and not just my posts or comments. Doing so will keep you up to date on the contest.

So what are the prizes you ask? Well I can’t give you too many details! What fun would that be? I will tell you that there are a couple of gift certificates that just about anyone would love, a bracelet, some super kiddie items that all of you moms will love, and something that you bakers (or wanna be bakers) would love to have.
