Quiz time. Finish this sentence … ‘Tis the season to:
a) be jolly
b) head to the hospital due to unfortunate sparkle incident
c) pretend your sweaty Uncle Charlie doesn’t gross you out at the family Christmas party
d) win free stuff
Ding Ding Ding if you guessed all of the above, even though it wasn’t an official answer.
Be jolly folks! I’m about to divert your attention from the sparkle that’s been embedded in your cornea since November 12th because it’s time for The Great Gargantuan Giftmas Giveaway! Gifts just for you! Just in time for Christmas and Chanukah! None of which you have to share with any relatives. Sweaty or not. Although you can if you’re a giving sort of person.
This year my sponsors and I are giving away over $1,000 worth of gifts. There are 10 gifts in total. But things are going to be a little bit different this year. Instead of one person winning e v e r y t h i n g, I’m going to pick 5 winners, who will get to pick 2 gifts each. The first name drawn gets the first choice of 2 gifts. The second winner then gets to pick the 2 gifts from the remaining prizes that they’d like. And so on down the list until I draw the last of the 5 winners.
Here’s what we’re giving away this year.
Turned Walnut cake stand from Cattails Studio valued at $225.
Take a look at her other cake stands right now because I’m sure Brenda from Cattails would let you have your choice.
85 greeting cards, stationary sets and art prints from Greymount Paper & Press are Valued at $192.
That’s right 85! Christmas cards, Chanukah cards, blank cards, all your card giving needs met right here. Practically Greymount Paper & Press’ entire stationary collection and they’re all completely charming.
Seed of the Month Subscription from Cubits … X2! valued at $190.
You know how I was saying you could keep the prize for yourself and didn’t have to share it with any sweaty relatives? Well Laura from Cubits anticipated people would both want to keep their gift AND give it away. So she’s giving away 2 seed of the month subscriptions. One for you to keep and one to give away. So smart. Click on the link to see what seeds you’ll be getting.
$175 worth of indulgences JUST for you from Ellenoire. Noelle is giving away $75 worth of body products and a $100 gift certificate for her store. May I recommend you put some of that towards one of my favourite products from her store, the Aquis Hair towel.
6 embroidered tea towels of your choice from Diamond Dust Studio. $120 value.
This one above is one of my favourites but take a look and pick out which ones you like.
Here we go! A $120 gift certifcate to Lee Valley.
I’d go for the cooking package
1 mixing bowl, 2 Danish dough whisks (great for any sticky dough), 1 butter measuring guide and 1 rasp (the best tool ever for grating citrus zest or parmesan cheese) – total value $120. But feel to browse.
L’absolu by Narciso Rodriguez from Lab Consignment. Value $105.
The gift you rarely buy for yourself. Perfume. A base of musk with hints of floral and soft amber.
$100 gift certificate to Crafty Little Gnome jewelry. Adrienne makes a ton of different stuff but when I was browsing her Etsy shop I stopped dead when I came to this Geode necklace. It would be MY pick. Plus you’d still have money left over for more!
Stuffed Stocking from Rough Linen. Tricia from Rough Linen has put together a package of a linen stocking, a hand towel, a set of cocktail napkins and a small linen satchel filled with lavender.
My sheets, duvet cover, aprons and curtains are all Rough Linen. I cannot overstate my insane level of love for this stuff.
$100 gift certificate for Wool Dryer Balls from Clean Sypria.
My choice would be these limited edition “Van Gogh” messy palette ones. I LOVE them. They’d make me feel artsy.
I will be announcing the 5 winners on Friday. Contest closes on Wednesday at midnight.
I know Wednesday at midnight confuses people. Does she mean Wednesday? Or Thursday? Or Tuesday even maybe? Wednesday at midnight means if you go to work on Wednesday then come home, and eat dinner at around 7 p.m., then watch a bit of television, you’ll have a couple of more hours to enter the contest. Once you have a late night snack, brush your teeth and get into bed it will be close to midnight and the contest will soon be closing. So. Wednesday at midnight.
To enter just click on one of my sponsors above and have a bit of a browse around. Maybe make a few notes for Christmas gifts that you still need to get. THEN come back here and tell me you would like to win!
Sorry! This contest is now closed for entries.
