GiveAway 8 Weeks till Christmas!!

Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival Button




So as you all know it's now 8 whooping weeks until Christmas and as keeping up with my tradition going all the way until Christmas I'll be doing another give away this week. What you might not know is that it's ALSO Bloggy Giveaway Carnival week...that means the rules will change a little for this week.

Winners from last week will be posted tomorrow so check in then for that.

As for this week?


ONE lucky winner will be getting the following THREE items...

The Snowman Storybook by Raymond Briggs...a Christmas classic you can share with your kids...

A Christmas Ornament letter (1) of your choice. A perfect addition for your Christmas tree or a great gift for a family member or teacher...


1 Pound of Starbucks (whole bean) coffee... your choice of flavor. The perfect beverage for getting pumped up for Christmas Shopping or Decorating...

To win this week you have a couple options...

1. Enter a comment (this is worth 1 entry)

2. Mention the Bloggy Carnival or Blog you heard about us from (this is worth 1 entry)

3. Have someone else tell us they found you from their blog (except blog carnival) (this is worth 1 entry for the blog mentioned...limit 4)

4. Write a blog about your favorite holiday memory and link it back here (don't forget to mention it in the comments) (also worth 1 entry)

So if you leave a link saying you heard about us from Joe's blog and you write a blog on your site linking back here about a holiday memory you could be entered for 3 entries (plus 1 for Joe's Blog). If someone links up and says they heard about us from you...that's another entry so 4 entries.

This contest will end FRIDAY October 31st. I know we normally go through Sunday but it's for the Bloggy Carnival of GiveAways. Winners will announced Saturday morning!

**EDITED-- THIS CONTEST IS CLOSED THE WINNER WILL BE ANNOUCED TODAY!!**

One of my favorite Christmas memories was the car trip with my siblings to my grandmother's house. No matter where we lived, we always made our way to her house. Now that she has pasted away, this is still one of my favorite memories that bring a smile to my face.

I stumbled upon your site from the 5 minutes for Mom's blogroll.

with blessings,
