Bring It On Giveaway!

And the winner of the CSN Gift Card is… Angela!
Congratulations, and I hope you'll have fun getting that new cast iron skillet! 
  The winner was picked with the Random Number Generator.
Thank you to everyone who participated and Happy Holidays to you all too! *Ü*


I don't know about you, but I hate the holiday shopping frenzy this time of year! Not that I mind shopping for gifts for all my loved ones—I love that part!—but the craziness of the crowds, searching hopelessly for a decent parking spot, fighting with some stranger to get the last whatchamacallit on sale, etc. just isn't my favorite winter sport. LOL This year, I'm trying to do more online shopping and using the time I've saved to work on my handmade gifts, decorate the house, and just relax (for a change! ;-D).

So, to help spread this new shopping philosophy, I'd like to introduce my "Bring It On Giveaway" this week. It's sponsored by CSN Stores, which features over 200 online stores where you can find everything from holiday decorations, a leather briefcase, great cookware, and even space heaters for those of you who make beads in their cold garage like me! The folks at CSN have generously offered to give one of my readers a $35 gift card in the form of a promotional code that can be used on any product on their site. All you have to do is leave a comment (maybe something on your Christmas wish list?) and a way to contact you by this Saturday, Dec. 4th, and on Sunday I'll draw the name of one lucky person to receive the gift card. Just think of all the cool things you could order with it—to treat yourself or give as a gift for Christmas?!

I'm planning on doing more great Giveaways like this in the future, so if you'd like to make sure you don't miss hearing about them, you can join my email list, "like" me on Facebook, and/or add me to your Twitter follow list.

Please note that I don't receive any compensation from CSN for offering this Giveaway. I'm just a lucky blogger that got picked for the opportunity to share free goodies with my readers. Works out great for me too, as I love to give presents! *Ü*

  6. I'm with you when it comes to skipping the stores this year. The consensus between all of my pals is that the sales this year are less than inspiring. Black Friday was disappointing and cyber Monday was even more disappointing. We are all anxiously awaiting the real sales.

    Good luck to us, every one!
