Gifts of Love (and Putz Houses!) Blog Hop

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!

The prize I'm giving away is a $10 Amazon or Nook gift card, and if you like, I'll make 3 little house ornaments for your tree (I'll need your snail mail addy). 

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.

Rock A Juicy For the Apocalypse!

Since the 12/21/12 apocalypse is nigh, you might as well go out in style, right? And who knows, just maybe the Juicy Couture pink velour tracksuit will send you to an alternate universe, thereby giving you a way of escape from impending doom.

A time-traveling Juicy suit?? What the heck?

This might make a little sense if you've read Apocalypse Babes: The Complete Series. If you haven't, fie for shame! Six full length books available in a set for less than $5? Maybe such a deal is what's really bringing on the apocalypse. If you want to just take a peek at the story, the first book is free for a limited time. Speaking of limited, this is the last year the Juicy suit will be part of the Apocalypse Babes promotion. And you know how bad you want one of these!

Check out last year's winner

And while you're reading the series, imagine yourself in Seffy's, her tracksuit. And trust me, you're going to need the soft, pink comfort of high end velour to tackle the stress of time-travel, zombies, nightmares, bad romance, juju blood, and conspiracy theories!

So enter to win your very own JC pink tracksuit at the Rafflecopter below. There's lots of options for entries and you earn more when you spread the word about the contest. Contest runs from December 1, 2012 to December 21, 2012, ending at 11:59 pm. Winners will be chosen and notified the next day--unless we're all dead.

One grand prize winner will be randomly selected to win, and will chose the tracksuit size desired (view fine print below for extra deets).

Second prize is a juicy Couture padlock and key necklace. You just never know when you'll need a special key to get you in and out of secret doors of Gothic ex-Soviet compounds.

Third prize is a $30 Amazon or Nook gift certificate. Cold hard cash always comes in handy during an apocalypse.

The fourth prize winner will get this rockin', limited edition T-shirt:

And ten more entrants will win the six book set for Kindle or Nook.

That's fourteen chances to win something. And if seven is a lucky number, fourteen is double lucky, so get reading and spreading the word about the apocalypse--whether it's the end of the world for Seffy or the rest of us.
