It's been way too long since we've had a contest on the website. So, one and all, how about sharing your idea of a romantic Valentine's Day. (Keep it PG please.) We'll pick a lucky winner and send her/him this fun little Valentine goody package consisting of a cinnamon scented candle, a Seattle's Best chocolate bar, and a rose lollipop. We'll run this until the 7th of February and announce our winner on the 8th. And maybe, if you're lucky, your goodies will arrive in time for the big day. (Or, if they don't, it will just extend the fun, right?) So... what are you planning (or hoping) to do on the big day of romance? (By the way, if you submit a really cool answer it might just make it into my February newsletter!)
Congrats to Jennifer Schneider, who won the drawing for our chocolate goody package. I so enjoyed reading all your comments and I wish I had a prize for all of you. We'll have more contests in the future so be sure to check back. Chocolate forever!
It's time to celebrate Sheila's new book, BETTER THAN CHOCOLATE, with a new contest. Tell us what your favorite chocolate treat is. (I'm gonna tell you right now, for me it's a toss up between chocolate mint pie and chocolate dipped strawberries. But I'm also wild about all the recipes I included in the book!) We'll put your name in the hat and pick a winner October 31st. So, what will you win? A chocolate goody package including a chocolate scented candle and some chocolate mint tea. (And of course, candy!) No picture of your prize yet because we're still working on it but I promise you'll like it! And I think I can safely promise you'll like the new book, too, so I hope you'll get a copy. Happy reading!
Robin, who is currently two states away serving Lebanese food to her mother. All the entries were lovely, and as always, it was hard to choose. Wish we could give prizes to all of you.
Wishing you all a wonderful Mother's Day!
This month, as we honor our mothers, we'd love to know how you are honoring your mom. Share briefly with us here and you may win our fun "book package", a copy of "Love in Bloom" along with a cocktail recipe book and a fun little notebook to carry in your purse. Contest ends May 11th and we'll announce a winner on Mother's Day. Happy Mom's Day to all of you!
Who won our money tip contest with her clever tip about borrowing art. As always, the ideas everyone shared were great. I hope you all enjoy reading the tips as much as I do. Sharing information helps us all!
Yes, it's tax time again, when a young woman's thoughts turn to... money. Some of you may be getting some back from Uncle Sam while some of you may be paying him. A lot of you, I know, are thrifty, so we thought it would be appropriate this month to exchange money-saving tips (and turn it into a contest, of course). Share your clever tips and sage advice here and we'll award someone with a copy of Sheila's self-help novel SMALL CHANGE along with some seed packets to help you save some money on the food bill. You have until midnight April 15th to post. We'll pick a winner and announce on Monday the 16th. Let's share our wisdom!
Karen Henry. Congrats to Karen. And a big thanks to all of you who entered. I hope, when we have contests like this you all take time to read what others have posted. You're an inspiring bunch of gals!
Actually, I don't believe in luck. I'm more of a blessings and hard work pays off kind of girl. But since we're celebrating St. Patty's Day I thought it would be fun to celebrate the luck of the Irish with a little contest and let you share how you feel "lucky". Maybe you have the world's most awesome kids (good luck with that one cuz I've got you beat!) or you won a cool award or ... whatever. Do a quick post and we'll pick a winner to receive this fun little purse container and a purse valet for hanging your purse from a table. Just some fun little trinkets for some "lucky" lady to enjoy. Contest will run until March 11th and we'll announce a winner on the 12th. Maybe, just maybe, that way whoever wins will get her goody by St. Patty's Day. Looking forward to seeing what you all post!
I love February! All that love is in the air fun and chocolate - it does my heart good. I always try to squeeze in some extra entertaining and a good romantic chick flick this month to celebrate. So I thought it would be fun to get some movie suggestions. Have you got a favorite romantic movie, one you think would be perfect for Valentine's Day? Share it here. We'll pick a winner and send you a little Valentine Goody package of some chocolate and a signed Sheila book. You have until Feb 13th to post. We'll announce our winner on Valentine's Day.
