A Few Announcements

Well. I really didn't know these Giveaway interruptions were going to become a daily event. But here we are. A few announcements (that I didn't want to wait until next week to share):

1) Altitude Design Summit has me super-psyched! The keynote panel was announced this morning in the Alt Newsletter (Do you subscribe? It's easy to do. Just go to the Alt site and you'll see the subscribe field in the right hand column.) Didn't get the newsletter? Well here's the announcement. The 2010 Keynote Panel is:

-Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan, founder of Apartment Therapy.
-Grace Bonney, founder of Design*Sponge.
-Jean Aw, founder of NotCot.
Among the three of them, we're looking at something crazy like 5 or 10 (or is it 20?) million social media impressions each month. You will want to hear what they have to say. To learn from their collective wisdom. You will not want to miss this. Period.

2) Also. Alt introduced a holiday discount today. $50 off through December. Perfect timing! Because I know just what you want for Christmas — an Alt registration. Right? Alt also posted the agenda for the conference. You can find it here.

3) The Alt Spread the Word Contest ends on Saturday (12/5). It's not too late to enter. Find out how here, and you might win this:

3) And one last non-Alt item: Destri of The Mother Huddle kindly posted a bullet list today, written by me. It's titled: My Favorite Things About Early December. And now I'm curious. What are your favorite things about early December?

Now. Back to the giveaways (just scroll down). By the way, I hope you're loving Holiday Giveaway Week as much as I am. Watch for the 4 final Giveaways tomorrow.

We have lots of the same favorites! I love it when the UPS man shows up with an unexpected package (or even an expected one that I get to open and hide); wrapping presents; putting up decorations and listening to Christmas music. It's a magical month.

It's my favorite month-- I love when the mail and UPS man show up. Really, all year long but definitely in December. I love wrapping, baking, spending time with far away family, hearing Christmas carols on constant rotation at home and in the car, lights up around the city, laughter... the list goes on and on!

It is a memorable moment indeed. I echo Lynn, the Christmas Eve. Our family usually surround the fire place and just chit-chatting to relax while the kids are playing right in the middle of living room. It is a rare gathering in a year for all family really.

I love seeing the lights in the windows and homes and some of the quirky decorations, listening to Christmas music and baking cookies.
