This is it!! The final giveaway!! I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who has entered!! This has been such a fun month for me!!
Ok ok, let’s get to it!!
-Elf and How the Grinch Stole Christmas
These are two of my favorite movies! They keep me giggling the whole time!! I hope that you can enjoy them and giggle the whole way through too!
-Notebooks, notepad, and pens
I sort of collect notebooks and pens… I have a huge drawer full of them! Ever since I was little I have loved collecting pretty notebooks and fun pens!! Side note: the weirder the pen, the better, 2 of my favorites were a crab leg pen, it was not a real crab leg, but you could pull a little lever on the side that made the crab claw open, and a NYC taxi cab pen, not one that belonged to a taxi, but one shaped like a taxi!
I LOVE glitter – this is no secret – so when I saw this in Target’s One Spot I had to get it! I also love the one spot… It is where I spend most of my time when I’m in Target!!! So many fun adorable little goodies in there!!
-Essie Nail polish
As you may have read in week 1 of the giveaways or perhaps in my “Things I Like” posts… I love nail polish!! Essie is one of my favorite brands! These are two of my favorite colors – power clutch is a deep grey that is perfect for winter! And beyond cozy which is…a goldish/silverish glitter…but this is one of my favorite glitters ever!! It’s not one that is meant to go on top of another color… this is pure glitter!! and it is amazing!!
–H20+ body wash & lotion
Years ago I was introduced to H20+ when a co-worker at the time gave me a bottle of their lotion! I love their stuff!! The company uses minerals and antioxidants from the ocean, and the company is dedicated to help with the restoration and preservation of our oceans. I use their body washes, face washes, and lotions! These are two of my favorite scents too, the orange is apricot-pêche and is a body soufflé (lotion), the green is ginger-citron and is a shower & bath treatment (body wash)! You will love adding these to your daily routine!!
You might have heard me say it before, but I love mugs! I don’t drink coffee or tea, but I use mugs for everything, water, juice, milk… This mug is soo pretty and will make your morning coffee/tea/water/juice a bit happier!
–Coffee Sleeve by Diana Meredith Designs
Diana is one of my best friends from Germany! We were next door neighbors, hung out basically every day, we had inside jokes (SHAMROCK!, Girls called girls), and had a secret handshake that I can still remember to this day, although if you saw it, I’m sure you would laugh at us! She is as sweet as can be and can crochet something fierce!! This coffee sleeve was hand made by her and she sells them in her Etsy shop, along with other items, like fingerless gloves, adorable boot cuffs, and precious baby hats & headbands!
Over the years my eyes have become very sensitive to sunlight, or maybe everyone’s eyes are just as sensitive but I am just now noticing how much mine are? Regardless I wear sunglasses all the time when I drive and am out and about, probably even when I don’t need to. So I love to have a cute funky pair! These are just that!! Look at how cute!! If you can’t see from the picture, those are little roses on them! You are gonna totally rock these funky, girly glasses!
-Polka Dot socks and Jewelry set from Forever 21
A few years ago I discovered Forever 21 and I was hooked!! They have super cute jewelry, super low prices, and if you notice on the bottom of most of their bags is printed “John 3:16” as a demonstration of the owner’s faith! I love socks, I can’t have enough! These socks are super cute and the polka dots make me happy! This jewelry set is cute, classy and can easily be paired with something casual or fancy!! This jewelry is gonna look fantastic on you!
–Wreck This Journal
If you have never heard of this, I suggest clicking on the link! It will take you to the author’s website, you can read about all her other books there too, but the whole page is fun! (To read about this book specifically click here) This is such a fun notebook!! My brother introduced it to us, and it has been such a fun little time out break for D & I. We made a rule to never complete a without the other! It is so fun to go through and get creative on a different level than we normally think of!
–8×10 Love Never Fails Print by Juliet Grace Designs
I LOVE Juliet’s work! Her handwriting is so beautiful and elegant! I have some of her work hanging up in my home and seeing it everyday makes me happy!! I have also had the honor of photographing some of her work when I went to the Branches & Light workshop earlier this year! This print will light up the room you hang it in! Love NEVER fails!
-‘Tis the Season Bowl
I love this cute little bowl!! I have two and my sweet little girls (Hubble & Phoebe) use them as their food bowls! They are my favorite furry girls so I had to add something special for your favorite fur-ball! However you can totally use it for you if you want, they weren’t sold as pet food dishes, I just chose to use them like that so my girls could be festive too!
These are matroyshkas measuring cups!! Aren’t they the cutest!! I got them for Christmas a few years ago and they are perfect! I keep them out on my counter and every time I go into the kitchen, I just giggle when I see them! They are happy little nesting dolls that help me when I cook/bake! And you are going to LOVE cooking/baking with them!
-Thomas Kinkade 2014 Calendar
Every year growing up we would get a few traditional stocking stuffer gifts, and one of them was a calendar! So I thought it would be perfect to add this in! I LOVE Thomas Kinkade’s work!! I literally want to jump into every painting!! The scene that he sets is always so cozy and happy!! I watched a video of him painting his Twilight Cottage (if you skip to about 2 mins you can see him start to paint, it’s amazing how he sees a painting on a blank canvas)! He walks you through a bit of his thought process as he paints and it’s amazing to hear everything that he puts into each piece! Even from the type of canvas and what it looks like BEFORE he even starts to paint!! It gave me an even higher appreciation for his work!
Wow! So that is week 4!!! Are you ready to hear how to enter!?
Required Entry: (if I don’t see your name in the comments below, I won’t know to add your name to the list, so if you want to win make sure to do the required entry)
‘Like’ Green Anchor Photo on FB (you can click here to go right to our FB page), then comment on this post letting me know you did so (and what your name is on FB) and answer this fun Christmas question;
What is your favorite gift that you have ever given TO someone else (it could have been at Christmas or a just because gift)?
My favorite gift that I have ever given was more of a moment, but I know that the moment was a gift! (I cry every time I think about this!) Here is what I wrote about my favorite gift I’ve given
“After we floated around the room high on love we took our seats, but my dad stood up and took my mom’s hand. Nervously she said “Jim! What are you doing? They didn’t tell us to stand up.” But then she heard it and her eyes began to well. He led her to the middle of the room and with all eyes on them, they began to dance. While Johnny Mathis sang ‘chances are, your chances are awfully good’, I cried and watched my mom have her own First Dance. You see, 36 years ago on the day my parents were wed, they didn’t get to have a first dance and in all the years since, there wasn’t much opportunity to dance. My mom loves dancing, and my dad LOVES my mom. So we surprised her with this moment, where it was all about her and her love, the one God hand crafted for her! It was one of my favorite moments of the day, and it will remain one of my favorite moments I’ve ever experienced.”
