>#1 Bestest Thing About Promo?

>Giveaways!

Yes, you heard me right. Giveaways.

Man, I loooooove giving things away. Always have. Ever since I was little. Love buying presents. Love giving presents. (Don’t love wrapping presents.) Love planning surprise parties. Love making things for people: cakes, quilts, crafts…anything.

Love, love, loooooooove giving things away.

Have I made that clear yet?

Yes, well, now, I have a legitimate, tax-deductible, condonable reason to give things away! It’s called: promotion.

My CP, Elisabeth Naughton, says there’s something seriously wrong with me…but that’s a topic for another post, or series of posts, or lifetime of posts, cause there’s a lot wrong with me.

I’m in Hawaii on a family trip–no, not a vacation. As Elisabeth so aptly pointed out, when I am with my husband, two teenage daughters and one of my teenage daughter’s best friends, I am on a family trip, not a vacation.

We were at an outdoor market and I found an artist who made some beautiful leather bookmarks and beaded book thongs that were well priced. I stood there for a long time, picking them up, turning them over and over in my hands, trying to figure out who I could buy them for. No one’s birthday was coming up. No special occasions. No just becauses I could really think of. Of course, there are always giveaways, I thought. Sweeeeeet!!

So…just a hint…a couple things to remember….

1) I looooooooooove to give things away. 2) You just never know when the whim will strike! 3) I’ll be giving away to those who hang with me (virtually, of course).
