I get THE BEST ideas when I journal in the morning. Okay, not everyday, but once in awhile, amid my mundane and repetitive musings, I'll strike gold. Or in this case, silver.
Stay with me.
So I'm writing this morning about how I would like for Jakk's Magic Beans Workshop to wrap up 2010 on a high note. I'm mulling over what that might look like, when it came to me, "Twelve Days of Christmas."
So I keep writing to see where this is going. And, you know what? It took me to one of the most joyful places of all. Giveaways! Not just one, but twelve.
So starting on December 12 ... 12/12 ... I will begin the Jakk's Magic Beans Workshop 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways. Everyday from 12/12 through 12/23, I will post one pair of Magic Beans earrings, made with love by moi here at the Workshop. Enter to win that pair by leaving a comment that day and I will draw the winner the next morning from those who commented. The winner will be announced on that post and contacted for their snail mail address. Once received, I will take their precious package directly to the post office (where the staff will surely grow weary of seeing me).
You've got twelve chances to win a pair of dangly gemstone and/or beaded clasped earrings set in all sterling silver. The only disclaimer is that you can only win one pair. Once you've won, you're done ... but you should certainly enter every single day until you do. I realize that it may be a stretch to assume that I have at least 12 visitors here, but I have faith and hope that you will be so kind as to spread the word. Trust me, wearing these earrings makes the sky look bluer, food tastes better, and your teeth get whiter. Okay, fine, I'm not at liberty to make such claims. What I can assure you is that they make great gifts, for yourself or someone you love.
Are you in?
If so, the fun starts next Souper Sunday, 12/12. There will be a picture of the earrings for that day and, again, all that you'll need to do to enter that day's giveaway is to leave me a comment in response to an absolutely random question. Unfortunately, e-mail entries cannot be accepted, but you can certainly comment anonymously if you can't log-in otherwise. I will draw the winner for that day on Monday, 12/13, and post the next pair of earrings for you to enter to win. Lather, rinse, repeat.
Thanks in advance for playing along!
