Welcome to the Holiday Gifts of Love blog hop sponsored by Carrie Ann Ryan Blog Hops!
It's a Happy Holiday from your favorite Authors and Bloggers. While we know everyone celebrates a different way, we wanted to make sure that you guys knew how much we treasure you all. So from Dec 14th to Dec 17th, all 200 or so of us will be blogging about the holidays and what they mean to us. We may talk about our favorite holiday traditions, recipes, gifts, reads, heroes, and so much more. We want to hear about what you do for the holidays, what you read, and who you'll spend it with. We hope to see you here and happy hopping!
And while we do that, we are EACH doing a giveaway. Yep. There will be over 200 giveaways on each blog hosted by that Author or Blogger.
But that's not all....
We have THREE grand prizes. You as a reader can go to EACH blog and comment with your email address and be entered to win. Yep, you can enter over 200 times!
Now what are those prizes?
1st Grand Prize: A Kindle Fire or Nook Tablet
2nd Grand Prize: A $200 Amazon or B&N Gift Card
3rd Grand Prize: A Swag Pack that contains paperbacks, ebooks, 50+ bookmarks, cover flats, magnets, pens, coffee cozies, and more!
One of my new Christmas traditions is making putz houses from vintage Christmas cards.
I buy old Christmas cards off of ebay, cut them out using patterns from Little Glitter Houses (the free print-outs are perfect scale for these tiny houses, but can be enlarged for bigger sizes), then decorate with glitter (Martha Stewart glitter is my fav). A hole is cut into the back of the house and you can nestle it into the boughs of the Christmas tree, fitting a light into the back hole. Looks like someone is home!
What's one of your favorite holiday traditions? Enter by the 17th.
Remember to leave a comment with your email to be entered in the grand prize! PS I'm having another contest ending on 12/21/12 called Rock A Juicy For The Apocalypse. The grand prize is a Juicy Couture pink velour tracksuit. Check it out here.
