It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Well, not really, but it is time to start planning for it!


Since I posted my Year in Review last January, I've had quite a few inquiries from families and couples wanting something similar for this year's holiday greeting. As I've been working on them, it seems I've caught the holiday spirit a little early this year.....and decided to host a giveaway! 


HOW TO ENTER (You may enter each way one time.)
1. Leave a comment in the comment section below this post.
2. Post a link on Twitter to this giveaway page and follow me on Twitter.
3. Repost a link to the contest page (link here) on your own blog, then leave the link to your page below.


The give-away begins today, October 20, 2011, and ends Friday, November 4, 2011 at 5 PM EST. I will post the winner the following Monday, November 7, 2011.


FYI In order to get the Year in Review designed and produced in time for the holidays, I will need the winner's information and "stats" by November 14, 2011. The photo, green christmas note, and postage are not included in the giveaway package. The giveaway includes 50 copies of the Year in Review and 50 envelopes. If the winner would like additional copies, they will be responsible for the additional charges. 


Good luck!!


UPDATE (10/31/11): Colleen of Cleanwash Letterpress has graciously offered to letterpress the final design for the winner!!!
