So, no, I did not win the HGTV Urban Oasis Giveaway this year, like I was planning (look how beautiful...it still hurts a little. Better to have loved and lost, right?). But that is ok, because I still have 2 more great changes to win something awesome before the end of the year.
Plan A: Oprah's Favorite Things Giveaway
Oprah publishes page after page of her "favorite things" each December issue in O Magazine, and to 12 lucky winners, she will give away one of everything on the list. It totals almost $10,000 worth of gadgets, clothes, handbags, food...you name it. I like to plan out ahead of time what I will give to whom (there is no way I could keep all of it). This is the third year I've done this... but this year she's going to pick me!
|Dear Oprah, please please pick me this year.|
Obviously I don't want to be greedy and win both. So if this is not my year with Oprah, I would really like to win AfterEllen's Sweepstakes. And I don't even care about being the grand prize winner who gets $500. All I'm asking is to be one of the 10 runners-up who win the complete 6 seasons of the L Word. I cannot say how great this show is. And I miss it very much ever since Netflix stopped offering it on instant view.
|Dear L Word, I miss you.|
So there you have it! My winning (and only a little delusional) game plan. I will enter these every day and maybe, just maybe, 2011 has a little magic left in it for me. Any other good sweepstakes I should know about?
