On the 2cd DAY of CHRISTMAS CARDS **GIVE AWAY** FIRST WINNER ANNOUNCED
On the 2cd day of Christmas cards I give to you a little Christmas charm. There is something so charming and magical in the air when Christmas time approaches. There is a feeling of comfort and coziness and love. I started to put up my Christmas decorations yesterday and even without all of them up, when my daughter walked into the house after school she just had the biggest smile on her face. "It looks so good mom, I just love Christmas" she said. When making these Christmas cards I feel the charm and wonder of Christmas. I hope that you do, too!
Guess What?!! We already have our first WINNER!! Thank you all so much for your warm response. I reached 100 followers so everybody who commented yesterday, their names went into a jar and out came............................................................ SHEILA!!! Sheila please email me your address and I will get the goodies out to you first thing. There are still lots of chances to win. We are almost half way to the 50 comment drawing, with 23 comments on yesterdays post. The more players...the more chances to win...so tell your friends!! Here is a reminder of all the ways you can still win:
***GIVE AWAY INFO*** 1. Anyone who leaves a comment on my blog during these 12 Days of Christmas cards will get their name in a hat for a cash or if you prefer a gift certicate prize of $25 plus some other random goodies. If you were to comment every day your name would go in the hat 12 times. I will announce the winner of December 14th.
2. I am feeling generous so there are more ways to win...Many of you know that my daughter is now serving as a missionary for our church in Paraguay. I did a drawing for those that made guesses as to where she would serve. My son now has that same desire and has put in his missionary papers. He will find out on December 11th where he will serve. It can be anywhere in the world that is open to proselyting...It could be here in the United States or across the sea. His sister is serving in Paraguay. Leave a guess as to where he is going anytime before December 11th and the person who is the closest wins. It will be the same prize as above ($25 cash or gift certicate + random goodies)
3. For every 50 comments accumulative during the 12 Days of Christmas Cards I will do a drawing for random goodies. This means that if I get 5 comments on Day One, 6 comments on Day Two...together that is 11. On the day it is a total of 50 comments from all previous days, all those names will go into a hat for the prize. If we reach 50 comments on Day 10 everyone who has left comments on day one-ten name will be eligible. If you left a comment everyday you would have your name 10 times in the hat. Every time I reach 50 comments another drawing will be held. So if I reached 50 comments on day 5 and another 50 comments on day 10...that would be two drawings. So tell your friends.
“Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he’s been robbed. The fact is that most putts don’t drop, most beef is tough, most children grow up to just be people, most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration, most jobs are more often dull than otherwise. Life is like an old time rail journey…delays…sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders and jolts, interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling burst of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride.” ― Gordon B. Hinckley
