December 1: Let the Games Begin!

I can hardly believe it’s already December. This year has flown by!
Our 24 Days of SWAK was another one of my kooky ideas that has turned into an annual tradition. When we started this holiday madness back in in 2009 Mason was only two years old.
24 Days of SWAK
Now he’s eight! Each¬†year he helps me decorate the tree. This year I noticed that instead¬†of all the ornaments being placed on the bottom third of the tree, we’ve moved to a big band of ornaments in the middle. Mrs. Claus¬†may have snuck in last night and moved a few around.
24 Days of SWAK
I decided we should kick off this year’s fun with a bang, and could think of no better way than to give away gift cards¬†today.
This will require a little audience participation. How many years have you been participating in the 24 Days of SWAK? Have you been with us since the beginning, is this your first year, etc. Leave a comment to put your name in the hat for the drawing.
Be sure to share this post with like-minded yarnies – the more the merrier! Here’s a little motivation:

  • We’re giving away ONE¬†gift card for the first 10 comments.
  • If we get 20 comments, we’ll give away THREE $20 gift cards.
  • If we get 30 comments, we’ll give away FIVE $20 gift cards.

and so forth. We’ll keep upping the ante (and your chances of winning) as the comments go up. The comments need to be from actual yarn enthusiasts, one per person. Multiple comments from the same contender will only count as one in the grand scheme of things.
The best advertising is word of mouth, so if you love this promotion please spread the word to others who might love it too!
You have until midnight tonight, so get busy and I’ll start getting the gift cards ready!

    I discovered 24 Days of SWAK two years ago. It is my own advent calendar – a special treat every day until Christmas!
    Thanks, Keely, for sharing with us!

    I have participated in the past, but think I somehow managed to skip last year. Terrible of me!

    Well, I have signed up at some point, but had to reset my password. So, I would say I haven’t participated enough – my first year.

    I think I’ve been in on this from the beginning, though I may have missed a year with computer problems. I remember winning a Snuggie (which I passed on to someone who doesn’t know how to make their own afghan!)

    I’ve participated very little in the past, but I told Keely that I’m really looking forward to the 24 days this year. So it’s feeling like my first year. Happy 24 Days, Everybody!
