Christmas in October


Last year was not such a great Christmas for me, and I want make this year a beautiful one for my family-and yours. And as the Grinch did so long ago, I had a wonderful, awful idea...okay, maybe just wonderful.

I want to have a giveaway series in the beginning of December, and I want you to be a part of it! Whether you have an Etsy shop (so many milspouses have opened them lately!), at home business like Scentsy or Mary Kay, or would just like to donate a giftcard or other favorite item you love, this would be a fun way to promote your business and/or blog. I'm leaning towards sticking with Christmas and winter-themed items, but anything that you think would be a great Christmas gift is perfectly fine with me.

I will be making special blog buttons for everyone who contributes (i.e., "I'm sponsoring a giveaway at Chambanachik") that you will be able to post on your blog during the giveaway. I'll also leave the rules up to you- as long as they are followers of my blog, you can have them subscribe to your blog, favorite an Etsy shop, like a Facebook page, Tweet/blog?Facebook about the giveaway, send in photos of themselves standing on their heads, etc. Make sure you clarify which entries count for what.

All you need to do is email me at chambanachik(at)gmail(dot)com and let me know you want to participate so I can start preparing everything on my end. I'll ask that you write a little blurb about yourself and what you sell/blog about/etc. If you have a blog button, I'd be happy to include that as well. Send me a photo of the item(s) you'd like to give away, and let people know when your item is up to win. (If you would like to package up your item in gift wrap and include a little card, you would be extra cool in my book.)

So think about it, share it with your friends, and let me know! If you have any questions, feel free to email me. I have a feeling it will be a gorgeous holiday this year.
