Countdown to Christmas: A Giveaway and a Laugh



Christmas is about giving, so it seems appropriate that I have another giveaway, don’t you think? How does an autographed copy of Snippets: Mostly True Tales from the Lighter Side of Scrapbooking sound? This is a new book from Simple Scrapbooks magazine, that’s full of humorous tales from author Lain Ehmann. It’s a bitty book that would make a great stocking stuffer for any scrapbooker on your list (including you). (Plus, it was designed by the amazingly talented Cathy Zielske, which means it's as cute as it is funny.) Read a few sneak peek essays here.

Do you want a copy signed by Lain? If so, please leave a comment, stating a silly thing that’s happened to you. This can be a scrapbooking adventure, or something else entirely.


From comments received between now and this Wednesday, I’ll randomly select two winners to receive copies, just in time for Christmas. I can’t wait to read your stories. I’ll get thing started with this nugget:

My story is about beauty…sort of. In Jr. high, my girl friends and I were always painting our nails. We would add stickers, use lots of colors, and even use sented polish, all in an effort to have cute nails. Then we decided to step it up a notch and wear press-on nails, so we bought the kit at the store, complete with the ultra strong fingernail glue. You know, the kind that gets warm on contact because it’s sooo strong? Well, one morning before school I was reaching for my eye drops, which happened to be in a bitty bottle about the same size and shape as my press-on nail glue. You know what happened, don’t you? I grabbed the glue and gave it a squeeze. I glued my eye shut and had to spend the day in the eye emergency center. (Yes, there is such a place.) I then had to wear an eye patch to school for a week…IN JR HIGH. Not fun at that time, as you can imagine, but pretty amusing now. I hope it made you smile.

I can’t wait to read your silly stories. :)
