The Kick Start Your Handmade Holiday Shopping Giveaway

By now you all should know how I feel about buying handmade, local, and/or small.  I don't think that mentality should go out the window when the holiday season rolls around.  Yes, I know the kids want video games and the newest gizmos and gadgets, but not all your holiday gift shopping HAS to be from the big box stores.  Handmade, unique gifts are PERFECT for those friends and family on your list who seem to have everything already.  What are you going to get them anyways?  ANOTHER gift card?  Blech, right?

This month I have some creative and fabulous small shop sponsors, and they all want to help one of my lucky readers get a kick start on their holiday shopping- the small shop, handmade way. ;)  Of course, you could always use the shop credits on yourself... Totally up to you if you win!

Okay, so what will one lucky follower win?

~A $5 Shop Credit from Creative Designs~
Go check out Amber's etsy shop to check out her collection of cozy fleece hats, luggage tags, eye masks, and more!

~A $5 Shop Credit from The Pink Woobie
Go take a peek at Chrissy's etsy shop to see her gorgeous knitted scarves, unique beer bottle cozies, cotton and wood teething necklaces, and more!

Okay, ready to get yourself entered?  Let's knock out a few details of the giveaway first...
Since all my small shop sponsors ship outside the U.S., this giveaway is open internationally. (Please note that shipping charges may be more for orders placed outside the U.S.)
Most of my small shop sponsors will be holding Black Friday and/or Cyber Monday sales, and guess what??  You can use your shop credits with any additional discounts they are offering those days- BONUS! ;)
There is a pinning entry for EACH of my sponsors & my blog that you can come back & do EVERY day of the giveaway for additional entries so make sure you come back daily and pin, pin, pin! (A-hem... that is 6 additional entries each day of the giveaway, folks.)
You must do what you are claiming to do for each entry!  I will check and if you fibbed, you will NOT win. :P
This giveaway ends at 12:01am on Monday, November 19th.  Once the winner is notified, they will have 48 hours to reply.  If the winner does not reply back within 48 hours, a new winner will be chosen.  (Check those spam folders, friends!)
