7 Days of Holiday Fun – Starting Tomorrow!

Wow!  I can’t believe how close we are getting to Christmas!  Where has the YEAR Gone!? I am excited about Christmas and the New Year… so much to share, do and conquer!

For the next 7 days I thought it would be a lot of fun for all of us to do a few special things!  You’re going to see a post everyday starting tomorrow (12/6/11) until December 12th telling you one of the items on my own Christmas WISH List.

This first part is just for fun and I like to dream big and put BIG things on  my list, I don’t expect I’ll be getting more than one of the things on my list, but I thought it could be fun for you guys to get to know me a little better and see the things I’m dreaming about this Christmas.  (Again this is meant for fun, not to sound like a bratty brat wanting and having gimme gimmes because I really don’t! lol)

The second thing you’ll see in each days post… is a wrapped present!  This gift will go out to ONE OF YOU!

Special surprises I’ve picked up and think would be FABULOUS crafty presents this year for you as my friends and followers!  So you’ll need to pay attention everyday for the next 7 days to find out what to do to WIN! … and who doesn’t love a nice wrapped Christmas Present to open!? The winners will receive their gifts wrapped and can open them right away or put them under the tree for Christmas morning 🙂

The third thing in each of these posts is going to be Facebook Fan winners which you’ll have time to enter all week long by becoming an AboveRubiesStudio or Megan Elizabeth FB fan… Just watch on Facebook for the updates when I ask which products in the ARS Store you want for Christmas and why, then answer those questions on by commenting on Facebook and you may see your name listed on one of these days with a prize coming to you!

The FINAL thing I will have is a “Deal of the Day” in the ARS store – it will be a special discount for 24 hours ONLY on ONE product each day from the ARS store! There will only be one item at a time on sale for ONLY for 24 hours. You won’t want to miss the different deals each day!

So to recap, here’s what’s happening over the next “7 Days of Holiday Fun”:

1) Each day, I will share one item from my own Christmas wish list.

2) Each day, you will see a picture of a wrapped present that you can enter to Win.

3) Each day, I’ll post questions on Facebook for followers to answer on facebook for a chance to win prizes

4) Each day, there will be a special “Deal of the Day” in the ARS Store that lasts only for that day.

You’ll have to check back here at AboveRubiesStudio.com to find out what is in store for that day, learn a little more about me and enter to win a Christmas Present from me to you!

Don’t forget too – we still have a FEW openings left for our Web Class on the DIY Home Decor: Family Display Frame.  The class is $17.00, 2 hours long and you’ll get lots of great goodies! (7 Printable Downloads, bunches of techniques and ideas, and a completed project to give as a Christmas gift or display for yourself!)

Here is the first FACEBOOK Fan Winner (We will have more over the Next 7 Days too!)

Karla Fahlbusch Hilbourn “Well, I’d have to say the “Paper Layerz Projects & Inspiration DVD”. And, you ask why? Because it’s the only one I don’t have! LOL I have all the other DVDs (except the stamping one, b/c I’m not a stamper), and I have ordered my second pack of Paper Layerz paper, so ….. I’ve almost “got it all.” Love, love, love Megan Elizabeth & Above Rubies Studio. It’s my go-to site EVERY DAY (plus I’m on the mailing list).

Congrats Karla!  Claim Your Prize of Paper Layerz with DVD by Clicking HERE!

I’ll see everyone tomorrow with Present #1! (and more facebook fan winners! LIKE Megan Elizabeth and AboveRubiesStudio to be enter there as well)

  36. Angela M. says:

    What a surprise to read about 7 days of fun! Can’t wait for it to start! Thank you for taking the time to do this.

  37. I have a couple of things on my list that I know I will not receive, but a girl can dream can’t she? First and formost I want everyone to have a wonderful and blessed Christmas. God has been so good to me and I want all to have that special love and gift that only He can give. My big wish and I mean wish is to get a Cricut Expression Machine witha couple of carts. I have the original Cricut Create and I love it and use it every day. I have been able to give such wonderful gifts of kindness to others and would love to continue to do that. I would also love some Paper Layers cardstock as I have not been able to get any and it looks divine. Have a Blessed day.

  38. Is it tomorrow yet?lol Can’t wait to see what you come up with next, really enjoy checking out your blog everyday!

  39. How exciting! Looking forward to it all. Thanks guys.

  40. This is going to be fun.

  41. Marcia Johnston says:

    Sounds very exciting and I would love to win your new paper layerz line!
    Have a Merry Christmas!

  42. Oh, Megan!!! Sweetie, you always have such fun and generous ideas!!! Sure would love to see you again!!! Merry Christmas to you, Sean, Gen and Ben!! Smooches!

  43. What a great idea! I can’t wait to see what’s on your list!

    Also, I can’t wait to try Paper Layerz! It will be great to have one go-to paper that will work all the time. I hate having to change the dial settings on my Cricut for each type of paper I use, and it’s hard to find one brand of paper that comes in all the colors I need, so I’m really excited about Paper Layerz, and I’m so glad that it was designed to be cut on electronic machines!

  44. Jane Dubois says:

    You are just such a special person. And now you’re playing Santa Claus? You are so giving.

  45. TK Watson says:

    Wow, what a GIVING heart you have! It goes along with that crafsy mind :o) I’m looking forward to your give-aways and all the fun you inspire! Thanks for your desire to help us…

  46. I have all of your DVD’s. They are GREAT and so informative. If I had to wish for something from your store it would be more Paper Layerz. Love that paper. It is so great to not have to figure what paper goes with what paper. It is all figured out for me. Thanks for all that you do.

  47. You and ARS are sooooo much fun! This will be a great time. I really enjoyed all of the posts on Veteran’s Day. It would be meaningful to have something similar during the holidays. Enjoy this season of giving and celebration. Thank your for all you give to us. It’s like your family is a part of ours.

  48. Love your site. I check it every day. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  49. Shirley E. says:

    Megan, I signed up for the 2 hour web class already, I got a message that my seat is reserved. But I haven’t yet received the e-mail with my online access information to get all of the class materials, supply list, templates, fonts, downloads, etc. Are you behind on getting these out, or was I just plain forgotten?

  50. You are always so full of surprises Megan! Can’t wait to see what your wish list looks like!

  66. I would love a dedicated craft table. Right now I am “spread out and over” my dining room table. I keep hinting to my husband…

  67. WHat? an excuse to browse your store, lol. I have yet to purchase anything, but the wishlist is long…..what fun!

  68. What fun! Only problem is I don’t go through my emails in a timely fashion during the work week. They pile up until my days off. I am going to have to make an effort to check yours every day. I never win but I can dream about winning! Anticipation !

  69. I would like Paper Layer & Dvd. Thanks for chance to win.
    Bobbi Ann

  70. Christmas is here but I am so depressed. I have no family here to celebrate with, so if I’m lucky enough to win I will be happy. Merry Christmas to you and yours.
