July giveaway: Coloring books and tea!

I had just about given up hope of finding anything suitable for July's giveaway when I came across some fun "Time for Tea" coloring books at Dollar Tree over the weekend. I'm giving away two — one for you to keep, one for you to share — and a package of Divinitea's Organic Earl Grey tea. In my mind, I've pictured two friends, or perhaps a grandmother and granddaughter, coloring away while sipping cups of Earl Grey, which I think would be just lovely!

I have really grown to love Dollar Tree because I just never know what I'll find there. I've learned to always check out their book selection, and this weekend, I once again found some wonderful hardbacks from favorite authors. On the way to the books, I spotted these coloring books. Yes, they're thin, and when I counted, I realized they have just 32 pages each, but hey, for only a dollar, that's what, 3.125 cents per coloring page? Not bad.

So if you'd like to be entered to win, just leave an "Enter me" to this post before 7 a.m. EST on Friday, July 29, and tell me what you would do with the second coloring book (give it to a friend or share with a grandchild, for instance), and you'll be entered to win. US and Canada only, please. Good luck!

  10. Don't enter me in your drawing, because after I read your post I went to the Dollar Tree closest to my house and purchased two of them. I just wanted to say thanks for the heads-up. My 10 year old granddaughter is coming to spend a few days this weekend, and it will be one of the fun activities to occupy her time. The second book is for myself! ;-)

  12. Please enter me in the coloring book giveaway. The second coloring book would be for my friend in Germany. We met as pen-pals and became very close friends. Our mutual love of tea always makes our letters extra special as we tend to send each other tea bags so that we can share a cuppa!

  31. What a great find--adult coloring books are usually on the pricey side! If I win, I would save the extra for a friend's birthday. In the meantime, I'm going to check my local Dollar Tree and see if I can pick up one or two to use as door prizes at the tea our group is having on Thursday. :)

  32. Please enter me. I would give the books to my mom and her neighbor. I would make the tea for them and serve tea sandwiches for lunch. Then after lunch they can continuing visiting and relax the day away by coloring. The weather here is in the 90's so this would be a perfect thing for them to do while enjoying the air conditioning! Thanks, Laura
