25 Days of Christmas Day 20- and The Season of Giving

A New Year contest

I love giving to others, it happens most often during Christmas, but I really love giving all year. Whether it's just an email to say I love you and I 'm thinking about you, kind words, a simple hi to someone that might look like they are having a bad day, inviting someone over for dinner or sending a card. Every single one of us likes to be acknowledged by someone,to not always feel invisible or that others just don't seem to have time for us.

Take a minute and think of someone who might need some cheering up this season, and nominate them for an awesome scrapbook RAK, which I will be sending them as a surprise! So if you know someone who has had a really rough time and needs some cheering up, send me their stories to . No one will be reading these stories but me. I will announce the winner as the person who sent me the story and as a surprise I will send the nominee a wonderful prize package with a little note saying that you nominated them for this contest and they won!

Deadline for the stories is Dec. 31st. I will announce the winner on Jan.1st!
If you are the winner please email me the address of the person you nominated so I can send their package out ASAP. Thanks! I can't wait to hear your stories!

NOW the recipe of the day-
