Enter Here-Big Give Aways Round Up For The Final Week of March

Through our blue, chattering lips we swear Spring really IS here...

March was a record breaking month at ChiIL Mama with TWENTY TWO give aways.   And we saved some of the best for last.   It's not too late to win the last week's worth of sweet books, DVDs, CDs, concert tickets and a collectible poster.   Links to all of our remaining give away entry forms are below.

In like a lion and out like a polar bear, seems to be the phrase of the week here in Chi town.   With snow still forecast for March 30th and April 1, the weather's more lame than lamb...unless by out like a lamb ya mean don't put that bulky wool sweater into storage yet.   You're gonna need it!

Nonetheless, my birthday's coming on the 31st, woo hoo, and flowers and tree buds are making a valiant effort to spring forward.    I still love this time of year  best, because I know there are 3 seasons of warm, nice weather comin'.    Even though it's my birthday, it's better to give than to receive sometimes, so we're giving away great stuff all week.   Enter below for your chance to win.

We'll sum it all up with the deadlines, and give you another chance to enter below.   If you've already entered, it's good to share, so we'll let you enter again for every documented social media share.   Here's the scoop, and good luck!

    Gustafer Yellowgold's Infinity Sock Poster (nationwide):

    We're celebrating the March release of another amazingly cool DVD by our favorite yellow, alien.   Infinity Sock is amazing.   Even my 10 year old "tween" is still entranced by Gustafer Yellowgold and the quirky, cool sense of humor that shines through in these songs and animated illustrations.   Check out Gustafer Yellowgold's website here for DVD ordering info, kids games, video clips and more.   Last chance to enter.

    *Our give away is a special, limited edition, signed and numbered, “retro-screened” Gustafer Yellowgold’s Infinity Sock poster.  (These are screen printed, and when Morgan Taylor first saw them he was a bit surprised at how they looked, and felt that they had a “retro” feel)  This poster will look like the Infinity Sock logo (the cover art for the DVD/CD set) shown above.   One lucky winner will take home the Gustafer Yellowgold’s Infinity Sock poster the last Wednesday of March.   Enter HERE through midnight 3/29.

    Good luck, and thanks for reading ChiIL Mama.   Check back in like we vote in Chicago...early and often.   April will bring lots more great reviews, news, and give aways.    

    Remember our regular give aways happen weekly on Free Ticket Tuesdays (Chicago Area) and Win A Disc Wednesdays (nation wide).    We generally accept entries all month for books, toys and other great freebies.    Check back in for additional give aways as the month progresses.
