Good morning everyone. Busy, busy over here and its full steam ahead at our version of Santa’s workshop. Needless to say, its a busy time for all but not too busy to not host our annual 2021 Holiday Love contest! The holidays would not feel the same without hosting this contest:) It’s that time of year, time to start taking your entries for our 2021 Holiday Love contest. Kicking it off a little later, but the upside is many of you have our homes fully decorated so its time to send in your best picture (or two) This contest is always much anticipated as we get so many incredible entries. I love this contest, if there’s anything that can get me in the holiday spirit, its hosting Holiday Love! Getting your pictures always makes me happy. As long as it’s holiday related, you are good to go! Some ideas can be your Christmas trees, beautifully wrapped gifts, your pets or kids celebrating the seasons, a snowfall, your front door all decked out, a beautifully set table, etc…. Below are the rules. As always I am including a selection from previous contests that exemplify what a “good entry” should look like.
