Celebrating Back to School With A QUICK Giveaway!

So, it is 10:26 A.M. and I have been up for nearly 5 hours at this point. This is normal.

Now it is 10:27 A.M. and Giggles has been up for nearly 5 hours at this point. This is a new normal that has been going on for the past 2 weeks.
Now 10:28 A.M. and The Chicken has been up for nearly 5 hours. And folks, this is not normal. She hasn’t seen 5:45 A.M. probably ever! She is not a morning person.
Remember this?
But, when I woke her up for her first day of school this morning at 5:45 A.M. expecting a fight-I got sunshine and rainbows folks. Seriously, I kid you not.
Sunshine and flipping rainbows. There might of been a unicorn thrown into the mix. She was dressed, groomed, and filled up with breakfast by 6:20! Yes that is still in the A.M. I am not sure how long this trend will continue. Heck, she could crash and burn as soon as she hits the side door. But for now I am celebrating!
Celebrating?!!? You may ask.
Yes sir-ee, Jim-Bob! Celebrating!
Today I am hosting a giveaway from Uprinting for not one reader but TWO! You know because I have two happy daughters that have been up for nearly 5 hours this morning. Or because the nice folks at Uprinting offered 2 sets of prizes to my readers.
Not one but TWO winners will win a set of 250 7×5 Half fold custom greeting cards!
What are some of the things you can do with 250 half fold greeting cards?
For me-I instantly thought Christmas Cards! Or What about a House Warming Party invite?

  1. Christmas cards! Most definitely 🙂

  2. I would definitely do Christmas cards…maybe thank you cards…I could certainly come up with something!!

    So, I saw this and thought why not? 🙂 Christmas cards it would be…maybe that would make up for never sending any last year….

  4. My husband and I have families that are spread all over the country. We are also exceedingly lazy and tend to use digital/internet communications for all occasions. It would be awesome to have some nice cards to send out for once, for holidays or other occasions.

  5. I suck at getting Christmas cards out, so I think I would get something that could be used for multiple occasions. Thank yous, Thinking of yous, etc.

  6. Well, not to jump on the band wagon, but Christmas immediately popped into my head. We adopted our daughter last year at the holidays, so it would be nice to properly introduce her on our Christmas cards this year. I have to admit I don't quite understand how the custom design works. If i have it right, I think I can design it myself and upload it? That would be really cool.

  7. I would either make all occasion cards or holiday cards-either way, it will be a nice way to stay in touch with family and friends!
