I have to admit I am a person who just loves the Holidays. I hate getting gifts, I know that sounds bad but I just love giving! This is my first year doing a Holiday Guide and I really hope that I can meet all my sponsors wishes and help them to grow as a company. I have been very blessed this year to have so many sponsors want to help out with a big giveaway as well. I am teaming up with my friend at My Side of Life and we are going to do what we love best(with the help of our sponsors of course) we are going to GIVE! So don't miss out in seeing all the hot new and wonderful products that your loved one would love to recieve. Many you will also have the chance to WIN! Our Holiday Guide starts tomorrow Mine can be found HERE and as soon as I get a link from Melanie I will post hers as well ;o) So sit back and enjoy, make sure you get those great products that your family craves!
