Black Friday and Cyber Monday Sale and a GIVEAWAY

I am not the world's best shopper and having to be in crowds gives me anxiety to the max!
I wonder if anyone is like me in that way?
 I think this all stemmed from trying to go to the grand opening of the Luxor Casino in Las Vegas when I first started dating my husband. The crowds were unreal, and coming from a small town in Colorado at the time, it was soooo overwhelming to me.
 I think this was the place I lost my mind...what little I had to begin with.

So the convenience of shopping on line is HEAVEN to me.
Bunny slippers and Diet Pepsi…I am set.

With all of that being said I am having a 10% off everything in my Etsy shop with either the codes BLACKFRIDAY or CYBERMONDAY in the code spot.
This is for all merchandise in my shop but excludes shipping fees.
This will run from November 23 through December 1.

Now for the Giveaway:

This fun Santa will be my giveaway during this time.
This will also end on December 1, 2012 so that I can get him in the mail to the winner for holiday decorating before the season is over.
