    Here’s a recap of the Giveaway:

    “When the Cat’s Away…” Daily Giveaways

    Starting on Saturday, December 27, 2008 (through Sunday, January 4th, 2009), I’ll post a Giveaway on the blog every morning, and you’ll have until 11:59pm PST to enter.

    To enter all you’ll have to do is leave a comment on that day’s blog post.

    After midnight I’ll randomly pick the previous day’s winner. I’ll contact the winner via email to get their address info — and I’ll even pay the postage.*

    To get entered twice, post about the Giveaways on your blog and include this badge. Then come back and link to your post in a comment. Please link the badge to http://www.alphastamps.com/blog/.

    *(Sorry, but I’m only offering free shipping domestically. International shipping will still apply.)

    Remember, the shipping staff are on vacation till January 5th. But for sale pricing on new ribbons and/or a free Valentine’s kit, I think you’ll be able to wait.

    So leave me a comment and tell your friends.
