I was laying in bed AWAKE this morning at 5:30 am (on the one morning that we declare "our sleep in morning") thinking about my Gospel Doctrine lesson that I need to get finished for tomorrow.
Then my mind drifted to The Ellen Show. I love her. I've said it before....she makes me laugh. She is in the middle of her 12 Days of Giveaways and giving away some fabulous gifts. I have entered online to try to be one of the lucky 25 people that wins also! I'm keeping my fingers crossed. I mean, c'mon, how cool would that be? Then I had another thought......
Maybe I should do a 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways on my blog! How fun would that be? I thought of all the little jewels I could giveaway that wouldn't cost too much but still are covet worthy. I have my list!
Then I thought that I needed a little banner for it. Lucky for all of you, my very talented, very busy, graphic designer, Lyndsay.....found here and here, squeezed me in with a little banner. And the reason I say "lucky for you" is because honestly if I didn't have some cute little banner to post each day with the giveaways, I was considering scrapping the idea all together.
Then I had to think of a name for the giveaway. Coming up with a name was pretty easy actually. "12 Days of Christmas Giveaways.....April Kennedy Style" because lets face it.....I'm no Ellen. Plus I have been considering condensing all my blogs into one. One that incorporates my life, my family, things that give me butterflies and my little store Funky Vintage Kitchen. One place to post it all. I've been thinking of using the name "April Kennedy Style"....because really I have my own way or 'style' of doing things.
So without further ado.......here are the guidelines to the 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways....April Kennedy Style. The giveaways will start tomorrow and go through Christmas Eve. One item will be given away each day. Giveaway will close at midnight and a random winner will be announced the next day. Comment on that particular giveaway post (on the blog for you facebook followers) to enter. Link to the giveaway on your blog and come back and post "linked" in the comment section for another entry and to spread the Christmas cheer. Become a follower on this blog that will be undergoing a redesign soon and enter "fan" in the comment section for a third entry. Be sure to check back each day to see if you won the previous days giveaway and to enter in the next giveaway.
Good Luck and see you back here tomorrow!
