A vacation giveaway.

Nope, not giving away a trip somewhere. I’m on vacation, and forgot to plan my giveaway.

But that works in your favor.

This week’s giveaway will be a $20 Amazon gift card because, well, it’s easy.

To enter:

If you do any (or all!) of these things, please leave separate, additional comments to get credit for each entry.

The deadline is 9 p.m. PST Tuesday, April 17. If I don’t hear back from the winner by Thursday morning, April 19, then I’ll have the random number generator pull another name.
