I have been stumbling on to some wonderful sites via my wanderings online. Isn't it funny how we are all becoming so connected? Each time a visit one of my Favorites, I find about 5 more, and before I know it, my Christmas cookies are burnt to a crisp, and my sons have already fought, made up, and are asleep on the couch. So goes it!
Anyway, here are a few that are having wonderful giveaways. I am always finding more, so if I find any more, I will post them. Perhaps they will float soundlessly into the atmosphere, but let it be known that the effort was made!
I just found Fantabulously Frugal this morning- this site rocks already. I am always in the mood to save money, and if you like tips, freebies and giveaways, this gal is flush with them! If I never resurface from combing the archives, you will know where to find me.
This Giveaway happens to be called "You Deserve the Best". I can't argue with that!
Next in line of fabulousness is Raisin Toast, and her companion site Red Easel. "Toast" is a more personal site - an online journal filled with interesting stories and ideas, her personal work, and inspiration. while "Easel" is a blog devotes to Art (Featured Artists, their artwork, supplies and other related subjects).
Back to her giveaways- I am almost tempted to keep these to myself, but she is having a 21 days of Christmas giveaway on both sites. She doesn't have a link button, but you can access them here:
UPDATE: as of Wed, Dec 9, she is no longer doing the giveaways. The sites are still up, though, and there are plenty of other things to see!
Don't worry, though- here is another, from Where Women Create!!!
This site is an amazing tribute to Women Artists of all types- you could spend a week just looking at the archived images. More fabulous? You can buy some of the works, too- some even created especially for them. Droolworthy, to be sure.
The giveaway is just incredible, too- one artist is featured daily, with a beautful item to be given away each day for 12 days straight! Sign me up, baby! Plus, you get an extra entry if you blog and add her button (above). Enter once a day until midnight on the last day.
How ama-zing is this? I have two little hellraisers myself, so I would adore this in my collection. Dawn of The Feathered Nest is giving it away- to celebrate her 1200th post.! The giveaway is for one of these fantastic decorative jars, or a gorgeous French journal. Beautiful...
Finally, there is ARTFUL HOME. This is in all caps for a reason, folks. This site is chock full of wonderful eye candy for home and office- clothing, artwork, furniture, oh my!. There are a number of Professional artists that sell from this site, so you know that there are some truly one of a kind objects and gifts. The glasswork alone is enough to give me palpitations.
They are giving away a stunning glass ornament each day through Dec 18th- you can access it from this link.
For some reason, the link to the contest breaks on me, but you can click on the link in the lower right hand corner to enter.
More to come, as I find them I will pass them on...
