The holiday season is right here, people! I'm almost stressing out about all the stress I'll probably be feeling, which is ridiculous, I know.
But! There is food to make, gifts to buy, and Christmas carols to avoid so I don't hate them by December 20th! I need to figure out gift exchanges, how I'm going to get everything clean, and what in the world I'm going to wear.
Maybe you're stressing about similar things. Probably.
And since I really do love and appreciate you guys, I want to help and maybe make your Advent more fun and less stressful. So this giveaway is for you.
One lucky A Knotted Life reader will win an Advent Care Package with a value of over $320*
You have a cookie exchange party to attend tomorrow night but you don't have time to go get a manicure, do your hair, or bake.
But now you can put on some cute, festive Jamberry Nails, make your lips look perfect with some Roden+Fields lip care products, pull your hair up with a Lila Rose flexi clip, and take two dozen homemade chocolate chip cookies that you didn't have to bake.
But now you have plenty of gold chocolate coins; a hip, new cd for you pre-teen son; some lip balm and hand cream for your teenage daughter; a book about St. Joseph for your husband, and a beautiful Our Lady of Guadalupe bracelet for you. Thanks, St. Nicholas!
People are coming over in an hour and the house isn't ready!
So whip out the Norwex dusting mitt, pass it to the kids and have them met busy. While they're doing that, you can set out the gorgeous Madonna in Blue print from Audrey Eclectic. Your guests will come and spend so much time noticing its gorgeousness they won't even see that you didn't have time to mop.
You seriously need a break. Right now. Just you. Please, good Lord! A break!
So warm up some of that chai tea, pour it into a cup wrapped in a cute coffee cup cozy. Warm up the organic cotton and flaxseed sack and lay it on your shoulders, so full of stress. Grab your copy of The Little Way of Advent and your Blessed Is She Advent journal. Get snug and read and write.
