Big Bad Back to School Giveaway Bash

You guys.

I can hardly contain my excitement over this.

'Tis the season for the kids to return to school, and as I mentioned yesterday, I'm not as sad about that this year. I'm ready for some routine and some structure and some breathing space. (And I think my kids are too.)

But wouldn't an incredible prize make the start of the school year that much more fun?

Enter, the Big Bad Back to School Giveaway Bash.

I'm honored to be co-hosting this with some of my favorite bloggers and friends. Maybe you already know many of these lovely ladies? If you don't, I highly recommend them. They are all artists, in the truest sense of the word.

And the prizes? Oh. My. Word. AMAZING. Individual prizes include:
And the grand prize?
I know. I'm stunned too. That's more than $1500 worth of loot right there.

And entering couldn't be easier. Just like our Facebook pages using the Rafflecopter widget below. (You have to be signed in to Facebook for it to work.) Each like earns you an entry. The contest is open through Saturday, August 18, and winners will be announced mid-week of August 20. (And I apologize deeply to my Canadian friends, but US addresses only, please.)

Huge thanks to our many wonderful sponsors. I'm going to tell you a story about my favorite sponsor later this week, because it's too good not to share. But for now, happy back to school! (And if you're so inclined, feel free to tell me when school starts in your neck of the woods in the comments. Minnesota schools can't start until the day after Labor Day; it's the law. But I know many of you already have freedom kiddos back in class.)


  1. Awesome giveaway! I homeschool, so we can pick our start date. Schools here start today and tomorrow. But, we are starting the 27th!

  2. WOW. That's a lot-o-loot. We start THURSDAY. So I thought I'd be a super fun mom and the last two days of vacation are going to be spent going to the doctor for well visits and going to the dentist. Waaahhh-waaahhhhh!!!!!!! (enter Debbie Downer here). Sending the kiddos off to school is a little bittersweet - routine will be so good again, but I've loved having them home this summer. Oh well. It's nothing winning a huge giveaway couldn't fix. ;)

  3. I love give-a-ways! We homeschool and started last Monday! Public schools start the 20th around here. We are moving in a few weeks and having baby #3 in Feb so starting early was a must for all of the time off we're going to need! :)
