Have you noticed that I have been including a few more videos on my blog? I haven’t quite gotten brave enough to vlog myself much (this week—I swear one is coming!), but I do love capturing the action that is so prevalent in my house. The single reason for those videos? I got myself a an early birthday present. One of these fabulous cameras:
My Flip camera was one of the very first things I packed for my trips to New York and Vegas…in fact, it’s almost always in my purse anyways because it’s small, durable, and so easy to use. And no, I’m not getting paid to tell you that.
My Flip helped me capture videos like this — SITScation in 56 seconds:
And what about this beauty from my birthday? My lunch time entertainment:
In addition to being small enough to keep in my purse, I can also use it to take snapshots (like this shot I sneakily captured during my Minnie Driver interview….). Just take a short video of whatever you’d like to take a “picture” of, and then use the handy included software to take a screen shot.
My Flip also comes with movie making software AND hooks directly into my computer for easy video uploading.
You should know that Flip has never given me a camera. I bought and own my own camera because I love it. But Flip HAS given me a FLIP ULTRA HD camera to give to YOU.
Not all of you, of course, but FOUR of you….because I’m not alone (not too bad, right??).
So if you’re interested in owning one of these bad boys:
…..here’s what you need to know.
**Today’s question for my blog is “What past event do you wish you had a Flip camera to capture?”**
In addition to simply answering questions on each of our sites each carnival you link up to will earn you FIVE additional entries.
This means if you leave daily answers on each of our blogs AND participate in all four carnivals you will have a total of 40 entries and an opportunity to win one of four Flip cameras (sorry multiple cameras will not be awarded to the same person if their name is drawn more than once).
Here’s a sneak peak of the carnivals you may want to prep for this week:
Tuesday “Creepy Crawly Crafts”: Link up with Mayhem And Moxie by sharing anything you’ve created this Halloween. Examples include, Halloween costumes, recipes, crafts, party invites, treats, decorations etc…
Wednesday “Ghosts Of Halloween Past”: Link up with Seven Clown Circus by posting pictures and descriptions of Halloween Past. This could be a memorable Halloween from when you were a child or simply a cute story and picture from just last year. If you are contributing to this theme as an entry into the Flip camera giveaway Angie’s asking for you to put an asterisk next to your blog name when you enter it into Mr. Linky. This way she can specifically view and enter the correct participants for the Flip camera Giveaway.
Thursday “Spooky Story Starters” : Link up with Mama’s Losin’ It by choosing a writing prompt and participating in her Writer’s Workshop:
1.) Show your spooky side
2.) Show and Tell using your favorite Halloween home decor
3.) Write a poem to your child as their Halloween character (for example I may write a poem to “Pongo”…the 101 Dalmatian Laina is going to be for Halloween)
4.) Post a vlog of yourself playing a Halloween prank on a family member or friend.
5.) Describe a favorite Halloween costume or moment you wish you had on video.
Friday “Eat, Drink, And Be Scary”: On all Hallow’s Eve, I want to see want you are making in the kitchen. Show your devilish desserts, give us the scoop on pumpkins, or share your favorite holiday drink. If cooking isn’t your cup of tea, then tell us what you are doing with your leftover Halloween candy. Do you enjoy immediately, save for later, or just bribe your kids with it when needed?
That’s a lot of information. All you need to do right now is:
1.) Answer today’s question on my blog (“What past event do you wish you had a Flip camera to capture?”) and visit the other 3 contest hosts to answer their questions, too.
2.) Prepare your “Creepy Crawly Craft” post and link up at Mayhem and Moxie for five giveaway entries tomorrow!!
2.) Remember to answer the question left on Mayhem and Moxie’s site tomorrow and then head over to the other three sites to answer more questions for three additional entries.
Just to reiterate, you don’t have to participate in the carnvials to enter to win. Those are bonus entries. You may simply answer the daily question (different question each day) posted on each of the four blogs to be entered to win.
