Hello everyone! I know that all 5 of you reading this right now have just been waiting on the edges of your seats for nearly 2 MONTHS now, wondering where I was at…but I assure you that I’m alive and well. What originally was supposed to be just one or two weeks of a change here turned into something major. Our family has had a LOT of changes lately – and I will be sharing more of that in the coming weeks here. In the meantime, make yourself at home. I hope that you love what I’ve done with the place. It is NOT finished, though! I still have soooo much to do here (please keep that in mind!). – – And I have had one heck of a time with my computer (that seemed to be almost fatally ill), and then some ongoing confusion with my Internet host…and blah, blah, blah -yeah!
So enough with the boring stuff! On to the GOOD TIMES!
In celebration of the giving spirit especially associated with this time of year – and in light of the fact that I am super duper happy to finally have my new blog up and rolling – I am hosting a giveaway! That’s right. The giveaway that many of you have heard about for a while now.
**Giveaway is closed and winners have been chosen! Check HERE for more details! **
It’s a win-win situation for you AND your friend! I decided to give away not 1, but 2 gift certificates to my shop! They are each worth $25 – and can be used on anything (even towards a custom made item!). So when YOU win, your FRIEND also wins automatically! See?
There are only a few rules to keep in mind while entering this giveaway:
1. Subscribe to the blog here (to help keep you informed and up to date)
2. Leave a comment here to say that you’ve done that – and do tell me your favorite thing about this time of year!
and – for an extra entry –
3. Tweet about this giveaway to your friends so they can join in the fun – and then come back here to add a SECOND comment with a link to your tweet. That’ll get ya a second entry!
If you win this giveaway, you will be required to send me the mailing address and email address of your friend who you pick to win WITH you so that I can be in contact with them on their gift certificate. Also, please note that you have until 7:00 pm EST on December 26th to enter. After that point, the giveaway is closed…the winners are chosen and you will be notified right here of who that is! (Note that I’ve updated the time from 10 to 7)
