* Earring Giveaway on CINCO DE MAYO

Would it be fun to hold the Earring Giveaway on 'Cinco de Mayo', The 5th of May, a BIG Fiesta here in Mexico?  Cinco de Mayo is is a holiday which commemorates the Mexican army's unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín.  There will be celebrations here in San Miguel - so why not make it a celebration on my blog.

Here's the scoop.

1.    On Thursday, the 5th of May, simply leave a comment on my blog.  If you are not already a 'Friend of Donna Did It' (follower), please become one to join in the festivities.

2.    I will put your names in a hat and make a draw.  Mr. Habibi will help me ...

3.    The next day I will announce the winner.

4.    When you win, simply leave me a comment which contains your e-mail address so I can contact you.  (Please be assured I will not publish your comment with the e-mail address in it.)

5.    Lastly, I will contact you, receive your mailing address and send off the little surprise package of earrings.  Sound like fun?  I'm excited.  Please join in.

6.    Just to let you know ... mail from Mexico can take awhile.  Patience will be an asset.  :o)

Here are some samples of what you might get in your surprise package:
