I want to give a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who takes the time to stop by here when they can! I appreciate all of you!
So I have put together a little Blog Treat that I'm going to be giving to one lucky reader! There are several things here so I took two pictures. And none of these items really go together, LOL! I just tried to make it a nice variety so HOPEFULLY there will be at least one or two things in there you like!
Here's the loot (look at both pictures!):
A jar of Walnut Ink Crystals by Tsukineko
FIVE unmounted rubber stamps by The Angel Company and includes the Creative Cling foam for use with clear acrylic blocks
The stamps are: "Thank You", "God Bless You", "He Loves Me John 3:16", a flower background, and a butterfly with the saying "Hi There"
(EVERY $30 purchase with The Angel Company gets you a similar stamp like these for FREE! Sorry for the hijack, just couldn't resist, LOL!)
Five square coasters
Two clear stamps by DMD
One clear stamp by Autumn Leaves
Set of two clear stamps by Inkadinkado
One wood mounted ornament stamp by Studio G
One wood mounted miniature alphabet stamp set by Studio G
One vial of 1/2mm gold glass glitter beads by Darice
One vial of pastel purple fine glitter by TSC Designs
How can you win it? Well, I'm so glad you asked! We all know Christmas if quickly approaching. And we also all know that the economy is not good. There are soooo many places of employment laying off or closing right now. It's really bad ANY time, but especially right now. Right before Christmas. My dad is a prime example - the factory he works at is closing it's doors this week! Lots of people out of work in this small rural area. Lots of young parents with children too! And then I just heard on the news that 2 major factories in Terre Haute, IN (close to us) is laying off half of it's workforce. And the list goes on.....
Anyway, I don't wanna get all depressing on ya. This is just what's on my heart today.
So here's what I'm asking of you: All you have to do to enter to win is leave me a comment on this post, letting me know what you and your family are doing to cut back this holiday season financially. Or some tips on what other people can do. I truly believe that Christmas is not, and should not, be all about the "stuff". It's gotten waaaay too materialistic. But let's say, for a family that DOES want to provide a nice Christmas celebration for the children - what can they do that's economical? How can they cut back? What can they do different yet memorable?
PLEASE, even if you don't have any thoughts on this subject, leave me a comment anyway! I don't want to exclude ANYone!!!
I will take comments all week until Saturday, November 29th. I'll then use the random number generator online to pick a winner. So be watching - maybe you'll see your name posted here on Saturday!
Have a great day, Tootles!
