january giveaway - win a 2011 desk calendar!

It has been a long time since the last giveaway... so to kick off this new year, one of my desk calendars is up for grabs (I am waving my Vanna White hands around the calendar now, just to make it that much more enticing).

Enter to win by posting a comment telling me one of your New Year's resolutions, or even better yet, one of your past resolutions that was a success, or perhaps one that was totally broken. Are you promising to build a larger craft empire (mwahahaha), did you promise to watch less TV and never looked back (in which case, you didn't get that Vanna White reference I made earlier), or did you vow to lose 10 lbs and find yourself downing some fried chicken (uh, i've done that one... but it was a small piece). Post your comment and you could be the winner!

A random draw will be made next Wednesday (January 12th), so check back to see if you win! Please remember to include some sort of contact info (etsy shop, blog, website, or e.mail address) and please only one entry per person. Good luck!

My resolution is to dance more often! At home with the blinds closed, at parties, on the street with a couple of friends so that I don't seem completely crazy... anything. It's too fun not to. :)

last year I wanted to be more creative, set aside time to make things and I followed through... so much so that I became so creative that we started making a Bean somewhere in there. 21 days to go and she's baked.

eclairre said...

I'm resolving to work less & have more "me" time! Stay healthy and happy all year long. :)

I LOVE your desk calendars! I gave one to my friend last year for Christmas :) Well...it was 2009, so I guess it was last last year.

One of my resolutions is to be more conscious of how I spend my money so I don't blow it all in the first week I get paid :)

Happy New Year!

My resolution for this year is to stop worrying about what other people think about me, my family, my parenting, etc. People can be so judgmental and I worry about it too much! But I am determined to stop caring about people's opinions. Wish me luck!

Bianca (Fighter of the Night Man) said...

Oh I want this soooooo bad. Your desk calendar is fabulous! I don't generally make resolutions, but last year I really wanted to learn silver jewelry making and I did it! So much that I'm no longer taking the classes and am in the process of setting up at home! I already have a torch and a saw!

littlechrissy said...

Oh in love with this desk calendar! I work at the courthouse so this would brighten an otherwise dreary and somewhat depressing atmosphere. I swore to quit smoking and have not even wanted to have so much as a puff since midnight NYE. I know it's only been six days but I feel quite proud.

lisaroyhandbags said...

great giveaway!
last year I made a resolution to quit my day job and focus on what I love most and since I did quit last January, I've never looked back. I'm less stressed, more present in the moment and happier (which makes my guy happier too) :)

TheFrogBag said...

I have resolved to actually finish project that I start! That means cleaning house more, writing every day, and working on my etsy shop. Whew!

Ruby Clover said...

Jenn said...

my new year's resolution was to stop complaining. man, i hate new year's resolutions... ;)

thea said...

hehehe, I can't believe you know Coco cupcake lady too! Not fair ;)

well as far as your magical calendar goes... this year I am rather corporately and boring deciding to be ORGANISED!!! wall planners, lists, deadlines and timelines are the go so that I have more time to pursue my passions, and get all the creative things I'm dying to do, done!!

I am already feeling more organised and on schedule so so far so good...

thea.

Stacey said...

I am resolving to prepare for the holiday shows in the summer! We'll see, it is so very hard to be motivated.

Cindy said...

My one and only resolution... stop procrastinating. It is so easy for me to get sucked into my favorite blogs, Etsy, etc. and spend way longer than I should just browsing around. Before you know it half the day is gone and you're still in your jammies. But I've never done that. *whistles* ;)

Campfire Chic said...

One resolution is to only finish books I actually enjoy reading. I feel like a failure if I don't finish the whole thing, even if I hate it :(

BTW, I <3 <3 <3 your orange organizer! I've been lusting for one for a while now.

SaraLynn said...

My resolution is pretty much always to exercise regularly and I pretty much always last the first three weeks.

Erica (Caustic Threads) said...

I really love that calander, and I could really use one too.

I have to admit, I dont usually make resolutions, and the real reason is because I cant think of a single one I have kept.

I do have some goals this year, one is to blog regularly, another is to incorporate more hand sewn items into my store.

My resolution every year is to de-clutter and get organized. The problem is that I'm a pack rat! Plus, how do you de-clutter when you're a crafter? We need all that stuff for when inspiration strikes!

Holly said...

I past resolution was the oh-so-popular "lose weight and get healthy", which I actually succeeded with. I dropped 20 pounds and have kept it off for years now. I get really proud of myself for actually sticking with a commitment that so many leave behind after a few weeks. Exercise and eating healthy are things I truly enjoy now. Cheers to you and this amazing giveaway! I would have wanted it even without the Vanna hands!

Oh my! I love the way that calendar is displayed! That pencil holder is great too :)

My resolutions this year involve being more body conscious & body positive. I have always thought myself beautiful but lately I've seen myself slipping a bit into a not so nice body attitude.

alexandra_digiorgio said...

My New Years resolution is to be the best girlfriend I can be to my boyfriend as he is going through detox and aftercare ... many many miles away. I want to be as understanding as possible, which is hard because it's so easy to be selfish and say, 'just say home!'
