Christmas Thank You Giveaway!

Thursday, December 8, 2011
In an attempt to say THANK YOU to my totally tubular, awesome, gnarly, rad, supportive blog readers, I'm hosting this here giveaway just in time for Christmas. 

In order to enter you must be a follower of my blog. It's the blog you are on right now. It's called HOPE*SMILING*BRIGHTLY

In case you forgot where you were. 

In addition, I run a non-profit organization that is an online support group for loss which also raises money for headstones for children. It's called A GOOD GRIEF

I blog about the death of my daughter. My work toward hope. My good days and bad. My honest feelings. My extremely active son. Running. Performing. Life in Park City. Marriage. And trying to live my life the best I can. And I wouldn't have made it this far without my blog readers. That's the truth. 

So become a follower and spread the good word about the possible winnings and why you read my blog. Post about it on facebook. Blog about it on your own blog. Tweet about it.  (That's 1, 2, 3, 4 chances of winning for you or someone you love who could really use it). 

*NEXT TO YOUR COMMENT, PLEASE WRITE THE NUMBER OF ENTRIES YOU FULFILLED. (For example, if you are already a follower and just left a comment it will say: 
Jenny-1. If you became a new follower, posted about it on facebook, and blogged about it, it will look like this: Emma-3...and then your comment). 

Thank you for your love and support. 

Here is what is included in the giveaway:

Your very own customized chart from i (chart) you. YO DIGGIDY! (I'm fun, remember?)

Two customized t-shirts from

You can print whatever you want on them! Logos, sayings, designs, whatevs!

A $25 Target gift card. Who doesn't love Target? I've had my eye on several skinny belts here! 

And a handmade toddler boy messenger/book bag from Mingon's shop!

I love it all! Isn't it great? 

Thanks for the years of listening to me ramble about my crazy self. As far as I can tell, the well of craziness is bottomless so this blog isn't going anywhere for a while. 

Come and stay a while and share your stories with me. 



Giveaway ends Monday night at midnight.
