Year-End Giveaway

on December 16, 2010

As previously stated, I will be ending this fruitful year with another treat. Aside from being a year-ender, my next contest would be the second part of my blog’s Yuletide Giveaway [my thank-you gift and Christmas present in one for your continued support]. A new set of swag, courtesy of Planner People, is up for grabs.

I wrote about Planner People here and shared with everyone how awesome their planners are. Incidentally, the honchos behind Planner People happen to be the very people who created Notebooks, Etc., an Etsy store whose products I’ve been lemming over the past months. That’s one amazing discovery I learned just a couple of weeks ago.

This was a collage I made and uploaded in both my FB & Twitter a few months ago. It shows all the lovely blank journals I’ve been lusting over, most of which are from Notebooks, Etc. [Click to enlarge]

Notebooks, Etc. is the name of the e-commerce site that was the brainchild of Regina Silva. On that site, handmade paper goods designed and illustrated by her are being sold for unbelievably low prices. Local artists like Reg should be patronized and works of such talent should be promoted/endorsed. Take a peek at her quirky designs here.

It’s contest time!!! Of course you would love to know what you’ll be vying for, wouldn’t you? I have no plans of prolonging the suspense here so let me now show you what one lucky reader could receive in the mail by the last week of December.

A set consisting of a 2011 planner, a blank journal, and button pins [all painstakingly designed by a fellow Filipino] is this promo’s loot. Aren’t they cute? Big YAY for Planner People and Notebooks, Etc. !!!

Under The Sea – Set of Three 1.75 inch Button Pins that retails for $4 in Etsy.com

a 4×5 notebook — double-loop spiral and side bound, containing 50 blank, unlined leaves

a 2011 hardbound planner in Bear design [Click here to know more about this planner]

Since it’s the season of giving, I would love it if everyone stands a chance of winning the prizes. I’ll make the mechanics extra simple. And by simple, I mean that interested parties would just have to provide me with a short answer [in the comments section] to this question: What is the single thing that makes you realize that Christmas is looming around the corner? Just give me anything that makes you truly feel the Christmas spirit. I would be delighted to read your answers. Oh and by the way, a person can comment only ONCE.

Promo period is from today, December 16 until December 25, 2010. As usual, the winner will be chosen via Random.org and will be announced here through a blog post on December 27, 2010. The winner will also be notified via e-mail.

I will be sending the prizes to the winner’s address for free and as soon as I can so the winner can start the year with the planner. I will have to contact the winner for shipping details so please do not forget to leave your email address in the corresponding area in the comments section. This giveaway is open to all Philippine residents only.

Ready, set, comment!!! Goodluck, everybody. Merry Christmas!!! Smiley

    Could it be the delicious smell of puto bumbong and bibingka? The hustle and bustle on the street as early church-goers attend Simbang Gabi? The merry sounds of carols playing or sung? The twinkling lights on the Christmas trees or the vibrant colors of the Parol? Or maybe the delicately designed Belen?

    I realize and feel that Christmas is just around the corner from the look on people’s faces. Life may be harder now. Prices may be soaring and the malls may be packed… but Christmas is Christmas – – – and it’s a Filipino Christmas to boot!

    The look is classic! Young and old, rich and poor alike look forward to Christmas – the Christmas spirit is there… the look of utter JOY and HAPPINESS! The CHILD-LIKE ANTICIPATION on people’s faces. It’s beautiful.


  28. Kany Vic says:

As a whole, I feel that Christmas is celebrated shorter and shorter each year, with the onset of different occasions and celebrations cutting short the early celebration of Christmas starting with the Ber months (i.e. halloween is a major hindrance in my humble opinion, especially in mall decors). But I am still thankful that we Filipinos still value our traditions nonetheless.

    The single thing that makes me realize that Christmas is looming around the corner is when Edsa, Ayala Ave., C5 and other main roads are filled with Christmas lights while we stare at them for minutes and hours due to heavy traffic caused by malls and bazaars everywhere!

    my favorite would be the start of simbang gabi.
    and malls starting to fill with people shopping for holiday gifts.

    When I see Christmas lights and bazaars are all over the place. πŸ™‚

  146. I know it’s Christmas when I open my coin bank or savings box to buy gifts for my parents and sisters! It’s the season wherein I willingly sacrifice my long-earned savings for the people I love the most!
