A Comforting Giveaway

Have y'all ever had a comfort jar? The lovelies and I have made these for people we love since the 1990s. I love the idea so much that I made some for my Etsy shop, CoasterDoodles. Usually, I use a plain jar but I jazzed them up a bit for the shop. 

The jars are colorful and have decorative, ceramic knobs on the lids. 

Inside, I have put 20 strips of cardstock on which are printed comforting, encouraging, inspirational, and humorous quotes. 

You could just as easily take those strips of cardstock out and put candy inside. I know candy has provided me with comfort on more occasions than I can count. 

Or, you could add candy to the jars with the strips left inside. Or add more strips of comforting thoughts. 

I'm sure y'all have guessed by now that I am giving away one comfort jar to the lucky winner! All you have to do to enter is tell me in the comments that you'd like to win a comfort jar. That's it!

This time, there are several ways to get more entries if you'd like. Each different thing you choose gives you 5 extra entries. Please let me know what you've done for the extra entries so I can give you credit. Altogether, you could end up with 26 entries.  

1. Like Empty Nest on FB.
2. Follow me on Instagram.
3. Follow me on Twitter
4. Scroll down and click on the We're on the Fence button which is a vote for Empty Nest. 
5. Visit CoasterDoodles and make it a favorite. 

Oh, and don't forget to leave a comment here letting me know you're in! :)

ALSO- Remind me if you already do those things so I can give you the correct number of entries! 

That's it, y'all! 

I'll run this until next Thursday, March 16 and announce the winner on Friday, March 17! Just in time for St. Patrick's Day!
