Christmas Contest Winners!

Well, I had a team of unbiased judges standing by and a computer set to randomize the entries and a team of lawyers to make sure that the results were determined fairly.... ok, not really.  BUT, since there were only three of you that entered, that means it was pretty easy to determine the results.  So actually, it was really not even a contest - it's more like I'm just giving stuff away to everyone who comments.  I'm practically Oprah!  Are you amazed by my awesomeness yet?

Ok - enough about me... congratulations to Dawna, Kristen and Devilish Southern Bell on your gifts winnings!
Thanks for commenting.  I hope to hear from you again, and I'll be in touch about your prizes!

Merry Christmas!

Little Papers, Christmas Soap and Christmas Contests!

First, some exciting news!  The hectic eclectic girl is now listed in the Best Green Blogs guide at  This is a great place to go and find blogs geared toward green parenting, green living, gardening and more.  Thanks to Timothy Latz, the editor of BGB for including us!

Second - I should've included a link in my Healthier post to the Slim Shots website.  Their website is

Third -  Christmas Soap!

Which leads me to the first Christmas contest...

I am going to have several contests this month to help us all celebrate Christmas, because I love getting free stuff, and I'm pretty sure everyone else does, too!  The generous folks at Write on Main ( were nice enough to donate some Little Papers card sets to the endeavor (thanks, S!), so be sure to check them out and let them know they are appreciated!

So... your prizes for the first contest are a set of Little Papers cards with envelopes and a bar of Christmas soap from moi!  Three winners will be selected from everyone who responds with an answer to these questions...

Since we are talking about free stuff....  What are some ways that you control spending during the holidays (or DO you)?  And what are the best (and cheapest) Christmas gifts you've ever made or recieved?

Comments must be recieved by midnight on Monday, December 21st to be entered into the contest, but I'll be glad to read and enjoy later comments, too!  Winners will be notified Tuesday. December 22.

For an additional entry to this contest, please become a follower of this blog!  Leave a comment that you have done so, so I can be sure you get your extra entry.

I'm looking forward to hearing your budget saving ideas!
