Happyluau's Big Giveaway: Live Well, Laugh Often, Love Much

Welcome to the happyluau's first giveaway ever! And I wanted to JUMP! in to the new year and make it big! The theme of this giveaway is "Live Well, Laugh Often, Love Much". I hope it will inspire you to read, create, and to live a fantastic 2009.

To win, all you have to do is comment on this post sometime during the next week. Then, next Saturday, the 18th of January, I will use a random number generator to pick the winner. I will post the winner on my blog, and when you read it and find out that you're the lucky winner, all you need to do is to send me your address and I will mail the whole package to you! I will also mail internationally, so no matter where you are, you can enter and win.

Here are the items in the package:

1. The first item is a lovely book of short stories about winter by excellent writers such as Annie Dillard and Kathleen Norris. These stories helped me to develop a better attitude towards winter. I enjoyed it so much I bought another copy---for you! Read more about it here.

2. The second item is a PageSage craft DVD from MaryJo McGraw called "Stamp Art Inspirations". It is filled with ideas for mixed media card-making and is almost two hours long. Read more about this DVD here.

3. The third item is a distresser that you can use on the edges of paper to give a an altered/aged look to paper. It's a handy little device from the Tim Holtz line and Ranger.

4. Next is a fun jelly bracelet with "Live Laugh Love" on it.

5. Last, but not least, is a beautiful sterling silver bracelet that says, "Live Well, Laugh Often, Love Much" on it.

So, leave a comment, anything you'd like and you'll be entered into the contest! Good luck! And remember: Live Well, Laugh Often, Love Much!

PS. If you still haven't taken the time to read and listen to my post on Three Great Things, please do so asap. You won't regret it!

Wow.. you have truly chosen some very creative things! You've given me some ideas. :)

Winter is my favorite season.. but just thinking about it, it can also be a metaphor for fallow times which are *not* my favorite!

Thanks for the brain food! :)

What an amazing assortment of goodies! I don't usually win things (the last time was when I was five and I won a potted geranium at my grandma's church dinner :)--but certainly count me in!

I may need to do some giveaways over at my place--what a good idea for 2009!
