HAPPY DECEMBER 1st everyone!! I know I said I would post my giveaway yesterday, but til I was ready to sit down and do the post last night, my computer tech was tweaking the system (**read - Todd was messin' with the laptop**). So, sorry, a little late, but none-the-less, I hope you will like what I'm giving away as much as I do! :)
As I mentioned, I've been gettin' all crafty lately, and that combined with my new love for thrift shopping has yielded some fun new Christmas decorations. One of them is included in today's little 'prize pack'.
A few weeks back when I was at Liberty Thrift Store, I saw some adorable little red plates. I immediately knew this would be my opportunity to do something fun with the new chalkboard paint I'd been dying to try out. And at $.75 per plate, I couldn't refuse.
The result? This little cutie that has been fueling Christmas anticipation around here for weeks now. It was the only Christmas decoration I've allowed out so far (the rest are coming out tonight I think...) and the kids have been faithfully updating the countdown daily.
As you can see by that number, we started pretty early. But here is today's giveaway, which will hopefully give you a cozy-warm start to the Christmas season:
A little countdown plate of your own, some snowman note cards, a snowman magnetic list pad and some yummy Candy Cane Lane tea, by Celestial Seasonings. And yes, the number on that plate is correct...you are down to 24 shopping days, my friends!!!!
To win today's prizes, just leave a comment telling me one (or more if you like!) thing that you are most looking forward to about Christmas. I will be closing the drawing rather quickly...you have until Thursday night at 8 p.m., Eastern Time. (The reason so quick...because I will be working all weekend at the beautiful poinsettia show at Glick's Greenhouse and I want to get in mailed out first thing Friday morning to you, before I am lost in the Christmas Castle!! Watch for my post about this year's show tomorrow!)
And the thing I'm most looking forward to? All of it! The music, the lights, the Christmas specials on TV, the quiet reflection of the season, and even the hubbub of the poinsettia show. But I guess most of all is seeing my childrens' responses to their gifts...the excitement on their faces, and also the true appreciation they express. Priceless.
PLEASE NOTE: YOU WILL NEED TO EITHER LEAVE ME A NAME AND EMAIL WITH YOUR ENTRY OR USE YOUR GOOGLE ACCOUNT THAT WILL LEAD ME TO YOUR BLOG SO I CAN CONTACT YOU IF YOU WIN! Thanks!!
