I used to watch Oprah’s favorite things shows. I got all excited and teary when people would win stuff they weren’t expecting. Just watching their expressions was enough to make me want to run out and buy some goodies for my friends and family.
Now Ellen has carried on the tradition with her 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways. Listen people, I don’t have unlimited resources or wealth to draw from. I don’t have diamond bracelets or iPads. I can’t even muster an iPod to give away.
However, I am feeling particularly generous this year and I wanted to share it with you, my readers. But, there’s a catch(don’t you just hate that?)
Here it is: I want you to go to my Facebook page and “Like” it. Well, don’t just LIKE it….can you actually press the little “Like” button? I want to set a tone for the new year with new posts, new ideas, new conversations and it all kind of happens there. I just want everyone to be a part of it. So, here’s the deal:Go to the link for THIS post on my FB page,share it on your page and then come back to my page and comment “shared” in the comments section. For everyone who “shares” my link , you will get your name into a draw for something homemade by me!! Just in time for Christmas gift-giving. (sorry, this will only be available to those in North America).
And then ….here’s the good part: if you’re on Pinterest, follow me and I’ll follow you back. Send me the link to your Pinterest page in the comment sections as well. This second comment will also get your name in the draw! So there you go: 2 chances to win!
For all of my new followers wondering what this is all about~it’s just me, a little prairie girl, sharing thoughts on home, faith and family. If you’re wondering where to start…..a timely, good place would be my series on Redeeming Christmas. Lots of good ideas for simplifying and taking back Christmas from the chaos that it has become. There’s 31 posts in this series so no shortage of thoughts and ponderings. Check it out here.
Oh and one more thing….there’s a time limit here. Only comments posted by 11 pm(central time) Friday evening will count. That gives you 36 hours! Like,share, comment! Off you go! I can’t wait to see whose name will be drawn! I wish everyone could win~but, well, it wouldn’t be a contest then. 😉
