the countdown begins

November 25, 2009

thanksgiving is just a day away, and for some reason it is the day the alarm clock goes off in my head and the hourglass starts its rapid descent (and i’m not talking about my figure here because as santa would tell you, christmas cookies go straight to the tummy). after the “handful” of christmases that i’ve partaken in as an adult, you’d think eventually i’d get the hang of this and start planning my christmas shopping early. but what would be the fun in that? i’d miss out on those last minute cold sweats that come with shopping on christmas eve.

but this year the hourglass is also counting down… <<drumroll please>>… for a magnificent reveal of a beautifully refurbished, completely restyled website for sage creek. i’d like to think of it as my little christmas present to all those who darlings that have to shop from afar. and wouldn’t you know – it should be launching a mere 12 days from now. (should is the operative word)… but should it launch on time… 12 days from now, here’s a very little sneak peak of some of the goodies that just might be available.

and since i’m fairly new at this blogging thing, i’m thinking it’s about time i do a little giveaway. so 12 (yes TWELVE) very special people will get a $20 sage creek giftcard to use either in the shop or on the new website. **fine print: all you have to do to qualify for the giveaway is leave a comment on our blog anytime between now and the day we launch the new & improved sage creek website. and if you refer a friend or two or three, let us know & we’ll enter you all into the drawing. to increase your chances, check back often & comment on any post between now and december 7th. in the next twelve days, we’ll be sharing some really great gift ideas and things to inspire your holiday decorating. on the 12th day of christmas (also known as december 7th & the launch date of our new website) we will do a random drawing for 12 lucky winners.**
