Winning the Winter Flu Prevention Giveaway

February 7, 2018

I'm the Lucky Winner of the Winter Flu Giveaway  

Hello friends.  I hope you're having a nice week.  I'm enjoying the week, but one thing we all have to be careful of this winter is to NOT get sick or get the flu!

It seems like everyone right now has a cold or the flu.  In the beginning of January I had a cold and it's not fun being sick.  I am ok now but I just want to be careful to not get sick again.

Well, in the middle of January I happended to see a giveaway on the blog that Kris from Junk Chic Cottage was doing and I decided to participate.  You can see the blog post for the giveaway HERE.  I was so happy and surprised to see that I was one of the lucky winners of her winter flu prevention giveaway.

I was also a lucky and happy winner back in 2014 when Kris did a giveaway for her Random Acts of Kindness Giveaway.  You can read about that blog post HERE.

If you are not familar with my blog buddy Kris, than you just have to visit her beautiful blog!  She shares her love for home decorating, home decor, and DIY projects that she does with her handy husband.

Please Visit the Blog

Here are the items that I won from the giveaway.  A very cute package of tissues, which are a must with me since I have sinus problems in the winter.  I always carry a package of tissues in my handbag.

Cute Tissues

This is a cute hand sanitizer craft that Kris decorated with pretty contact paper that she found at the dollar store.  She took the sticker off of the hand sanitizer and just cut some paper and wrapped it around the container.  You can see how she did this cute DIY project HERE.

Kris also added to the giveaway a box of chocolates and a lollipop for Valentine's Day which will be here next week.  Yum!  💝

I added the hand sanitizer and tissues right away into the little makeup case that I use in my handbag.  I like to use a little makeup case in my handbag so that I can keep things like, tissues, hand sanitizer, lipstick, gum, and I always have tic tacs in my bag.

This is one of the reasons why I like blogging.  It's because of the thoughtful and generous bloggers like Kris.  It is so much fun when you can form a friendship with someone that you have never met in person but connect with them like blogging.


I have met through reading blogs many sweet and nice blog buddies.  I have also been lucky enough to have met some of you in person!!  I would love and hope to meet more of you in person as I continue to blog.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all enjoy the rest of the week and weekend.

  5. Julie-I am thrilled that you won that. I just adore Kris and we have met in person twice now. I love her even more after meeting her because her 'true self' only comes through so far on the blog She is warm-hearted, generous and really funny to boot. I count myself lucky to have her in my life! xo Diana

  10. Congrats Julie on winning one of Kris's sweet little gifts. Such a treasure! Happy weekend.

  11. Congratulations on being a winner. Stay warm and well. That flu is a killer. I sure don't want to be sick with that stuff. I always get my flu shot and most of the people who got the flu didn't get a shot.

    Have a good week Julie.
