#1 Bestest Thing About Promo?

>> Friday, June 18, 2010


Yes, you heard me right. Giveaways.

Man, I loooooove giving things away. Always have. Ever since I was little. Love buying presents. Love giving presents. (Don't love wrapping presents.) Love planning surprise parties. Love making things for people: cakes, quilts, crafts...anything.

Love, love, loooooooove giving things away.

Have I made that clear yet?

Yes, well, now, I have a legitimate, tax-deductible, condonable reason to give things away! It's called: promotion.

My CP, Elisabeth Naughton, says there's something seriously wrong with me...but that's a topic for another post, or series of posts, or lifetime of posts, cause there's a lot wrong with me.

I'm in Hawaii on a family trip--no, not a vacation. As Elisabeth so aptly pointed out, when I am with my husband, two teenage daughters and one of my teenage daughter's best friends, I am on a family trip, not a vacation.

We were at an outdoor market and I found an artist who made some beautiful leather bookmarks and beaded book thongs that were well priced. I stood there for a long time, picking them up, turning them over and over in my hands, trying to figure out who I could buy them for. No one's birthday was coming up. No special occasions. No just becauses I could really think of. Of course, there are always giveaways, I thought. Sweeeeeet!!

So...just a hint...a couple things to remember....

1) I looooooooooove to give things away. 2) You just never know when the whim will strike! 3) I'll be giving away to those who hang with me (virtually, of course).

Whoot! Sounds like lots of fun. I'll be hanging round-- if I can post over here. I've been having a terrible time getting your blog to allow my comments.


Oh my gosh, you were in my neck of the woods! I hope my fair state treated you and your family well. (=
I'm with you on giving presents away. My hubs thought I was nuts when we first moved in together and he saw that I had a closet full of presents that I would buy (read: collect) ALL YEAR LONG. I love just getting something because it could be a great gift for someone. Birthdays, Christmas, Tuesday...doesn't matter the reason, I just love watching someone open a really great gift.
Sooo, I definitely don't think there is anything wrong with you because that would mean admitting there is something wrong with me too! (= hehe
I hope your summer is going well,
(= Nina
