The holidays are here, and to me that means cookies and candy. (Okay every occasion means cookies and candy… but did you see that it was National Cookie Day yesterday?)
So yesterday I shared a post on Coco/Mingo about just that, with a little recipe to add to your holiday swap (do you do a cookie swap?) or, if you like, just eat up all by yourself.
… you already know that’s what we did. This season is dangerous.
Check the post out here, along with all of the gorgeousness that is Jessica’s blog.
And thank you thank you thank you to everyone for entering yesterday, and for all of your kind words. I’m so excited that I was able to introduce a few of you to a great new brand, and I love hearing all about your plans for the photo books!
If you didn’t have a chance to enter, don’t worry. All of our 24 Merry Days Giveaways last for a whole week. (So that means right now you can still enter days 1-5… just sayin’.)
We’ve talked about my house, right? How it’s kind of stuck in this constant state of decorating disrepair?
So let me tell you, today’s giveaway speaks straight to me — what I wouldn’t give to have a whole gallery wall of prints in one fell swoop.
In fact you might want to hurry over to Making it Lovely now, before I find a way to fix day five (okay or all of the days… are you loving this so far?!)
I’m so excited to share that for the fourth day of 24 Merry Days, I’m giving away a $100 gift certificate to Artifact Uprising!
Their photo prints, books, wooden calendars, and holiday cards would all make the perfect gifts this holiday season. Not to mention these gorgeous wooden boxes that you can create for just $95 (did I mention that their prices are insanely reasonable? $100 will go a long way).
Oh hey, and by the way, all of their products are recycled and made of insanely lush, beautiful paper, the likes of which you definitely won’t find anywhere else. Sold yet? I was.
It’s easy to enter, just follow the instructions in the box below. We’re using Rafflecopter, so you have 20 chances to win!

Thank you to Artifact Uprising for making this giveaway possible!! And, of course, to Audrey — who really made this whole thing possible with her ninja-awesome organizational skills, guiding us all through 24 Merry Days every step of the way.
Unfortunately this giveaway is open to readers in the US only (boo… but be sure to check back at the 24 Merry Days site for the rest of our prizes, because some of them are open to everyone, and they’re coming up soon!).
It seems like every day after Thanksgiving has a shopping designation these days… Black Friday, Cyber Monday… it can be a little overwhelming. But Giving Tuesday is one day I think I can get behind. It’s a day that encourages us all to give a little back, and this year I’m excited to say that I had the opportunity to give something pretty big.
Frederick Reads is a partnership between Frederick County Public Libraries and dozens of local organizations to build literacy and foster a love of reading. They hold readings and other events throughout the year, which require a ton of organizing by their lovely chair, Elizabeth Cromwell.
Elizabeth is hard at work prepping for next season’s events, and has already shared a ton of ways she might be able to use the tablet… to research upcoming guests, promote events, and even produce the presentations that accompany speakers on stage.
The tablet is super light, with a little kickstand that makes it easy to set up for movies, or to attach a keyboard to and type… so I know it will come in handy in a lot of ways. I know I’ve gotten a ton of use out of my own.
Thanks Lenovo for making this happen. We all love a good shopping day, but there’s nothing quite like the feeling of giving back.
Have you thought about joining in on Giving Tuesday? Click here to read more about the day. It’s all about giving back, but that doesn’t have to mean money or things… it’s a great day to go out and volunteer too!
I’ve been coveting today’s giveaway myself for ages. Public makes the cutest and coolest little city bikes I think I’ve ever seen.
Now, if you took a look in my garage you’d probably say that Mark and I don’t need another bike (at something like 3 or 4 apiece… a gal needs a bike for every occasion, right?) but we’re firm believers that when it comes to bikes, there’s no such thing as too many.
Especially adorable single-speed city bikes. So even if you already have one you love, run on over to The House That Lars Built and enter now! And be sure to check back here tomorrow — because I’m up next!
And I can’t wait to reveal what I have to give away!
And yet, it’s the absurdity that makes it all fun. I have to admit I was skeptical going in. I’m not a big fan of crowds… or the cold… or well, to be honest I kind of hate parades. Put all three together and you’re looking at my personal idea of hell. So waking up early to traipse out into the cold and the wind, just to stand for three hours and wait for a parade… no thank you. I’ll see everyone at dinner.
BUT — when you have a seven-year-old, and you really hope that it might be one of the most magical days of his little life, all of a sudden, even if you hate it all, it’s kind of hard to miss…
Happy Monday! It’s day two of 24 Merry Days, and today we have something really exciting (okay let’s just be honest, I’m going to be saying that a lot).
But really, I’d pretty much die for a $250 shopping spree at Anthro… in fact with that much free cash, I’m not even sure I’d know where to start.
For now though, you have some work to do. Head on over to House of Earnest to enter our very first day of 24 Merry Days.
… and tell me, how excited are you that December is finally here?!
