Holly Bloggy Christmas 2012

Hey everyone!  We are back for another exciting year of Holly Bloggy Christmas!

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens...

This year's theme is My Favorite Things!  Everyone will use their best Oprah voice and head bob and share a few of their favorite things with their partner.  {Unfortunately no one is going to give away a brand!new!LEX-USSSSSSS!  Wait.  If anyone out there is interested in giving away a luxury vehicle, please disclose that info in your email to me so I can select you a very special partner.}

Grab button for Holly Bloggy Christmas

Here's how this works:

-Sign ups close on November 26th.  Please sign up ASAP so you don't miss out!
-Email us at teacherbloggerexchange{at}gmail{dot}com with your name, blog address, mailing address, any allergies, and then give us a blurb about you to send on to your partner.
-International Friends: please let us know if you are not in the USA.  We love our overseas teacher bloggers and will do everything we can to pair you up with another foreign friend!
-We will email out partners by December 1st.  You will read over your partner's information and blog and then use that to send them some of your favorite things that you think they might enjoy too!  There is a $15 limit excluding shipping.
-Take a picture of your gift BEFORE you send it!  This is important!
-Wrap it up and get it to the post office by December 10th.  You MUST get a shipping confirmation number.
-Email us your shipping confirmation number by December 10th.  We HAVE to have this information! There is nothing worse than getting emails from people who sent their gift but never received their gift!!! If you are too busy, please opt out this year! There will always be next year!
-Write a post about your favorite things and why you sent them to your new bloggy friend.  Include the picture you took of your gift. Schedule it to post on December 25th.  We will have a linky party for everyone to showcase their gifts here on Christmas day!

If you are interested in hosting a Holly Bloggy Giveaway, please email us at the email address above with "Giveway" in the subject line.  We would like to try something different this year and allow people to guest post over here {complete with your blog button and links to your TpT stores} and give away one {or two!} of your favorite things.  It could be a gift card to your favorite store, yur favorite lip gloss, anything!  We have set a minimum of $10 value on the giveaway item.  Email us by November 26th if you would like to be a giveaway sponsor!

Alright!  I think that covers all of the details!  We can't wait for another fun Holly Bloggy Christmas with you fabulous people again this year! 

Ready, set, GO!
