Holiday Cheer + My First Giveaway!!!

Stay tuned for a very special New Year's giveaway!!!

Well my loves, Christmas has come and gone!

Now it's time to get back to the regularly scheduled program.

How many of you spent a small fortune on Christmas gifts?

My honey always says that gifts should be given year round (whether big or small) and not just a couple of days out of the year. I couldn't agree more.

Speaking of giving, I want to give ONE lucky reader something for being so loyal and kick ass. For taking a walk with me as I share my thrifty style with the world. For always reading and commenting. And for just showing me genuine love in the process. It is greatly appreciated.

This is my very first giveaway and I'm too excited. Since I'm not one of those big, fancy, schmancy blogger types, this giveaway isn't sponsored by a huge company. It's sponsored by my pockets and my utmost graciousness for your readership.

For the last couple of months, I've also been inspired and motivated by a very awesome like group of girls, the BLMGirls, who you can read more about here.  They have become my virtual family as well as my blogger BFF's. They challenge me each and every day to become a better blogger,to stay true to myself  FIRST, and to ultimately be the best me that I can be.

I'm looking forward to a new year of writing, entertaining, and learning. In the next 365 days I want to see financial breakthroughs, better relationships, and success with my online shop, which you can visit here and here. I want to make sure that I interact with my readers more, learn how to better maneuver through the functions on this high tech camera that the honey is sharing with me, and somehow find a way to figure out this whole time management thing because somedays I am truly overwhelmed!

Anyhow, on to the giveaway....

On New Year's Day, 1/1/2013, one of my readers will win the following contents from my very FIRST giveaway...
