Santa Came Early

I must have been extra good this year because Santa came early and often. I've won several giveaways in the past few weeks.

My first win EVER came from Ami at Alilily. Ami is a young wife and mother and is sweet as can be. She offers custom made jewelry in her Etsy shop. As you can see, she wrapped my prizes in festive holiday wrap. Aren't these earrings great?

That same week, I won this George Foreman Evolve Grill from Simply Stacie.
Simply Stacie is a review/guide/giveaway blog in Canada. I saved a lot on holiday gifts this year thanks in part to Simply Stacie.

Last week, I won this Scentsy Plug in from Amy at Just Another Manic Momday. If you haven't met Amy, hop over to her blog. I challenge you not to ooh and ahh over Jack.

Finally, we had our Holiday Luncheon and raffle at work Friday.
We have fund raising events all year long with the holiday raffle being the big money-maker. Our company raffles donated items with the proceeds going to Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus. This year we raised $10,500.

The donated items include gift cards, sporting event tickets, and gift baskets. The two big items this year were an iPad and a Kindle.

I haven't won a raffle in 11 years. This year, I won $125 in gift cards. Yahoo! I think I'll play the lottery this week.

Please visit these wonderful bloggers and say hello.
