GIVEAWAY DAY!!

GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED-- COME BACK MONDAY TO SEE 5 WINNERS! (you can still order the letters! Read on!



A FREE letter from Santa Claus to your children before Christmas!

Giveaway Ends on Saturday Night at 10pm AZ time


As promised I am doing a big giveaway to 5 lucky families. This giveaway is to help promote my business North Pole Secretary. I told my kids that I have been hired by Santa this year. (They were amazed and totally impressed that he'd hire me... lots of competition out there you know.) I said that Santa knew we were trying to pay down our adoptions and that he wanted to hire me to be his secretary to help send out all of his letters to good girls and boys.



Here's one of the inspirations behind North Pole Secretary. To see her sis check this post.


I wanted these letters to not only be a lasting memory for your child but to also help enforce what we are trying to accomplish in our homes... teaching our children about our Savior. My letters have a paragraph from Santa about the true meaning of Christmas. Santa reminds the children that gifts are so fun to get and that he enjoys giving them but that the greatest gift of all was our Savior. Santa then asks the child to give service or share during this season and to follow the example of Jesus Christ. The wording in each letter is different. (If you haven't read the book above, it's a great one!)




So this is what North Pole Secretary offers:

For only $8.00 per letter you get-

  • Personalized letter from Santa using your child's name, the city Santa will be visiting, an accomplishment for this year, 2 gift wishes, sibling names, and pet name.
  • Christ centered Santa's message about the true meaning of Christmas. (My favorite part)
  • Santa's news on what's going on at the North Pole... I love writing this stuff!!
  • A reminder to continue to be good... Great leverage for those long shopping trips:)
  • A different letter for every child in the same family (yes, if you have 10 kids I'll write extra letters as it is I have 8).
  • Stationary and envelopes are in festive Christmas colors. (Stationary will vary depending on what's in stock with my supplier)
  • Letter sent off to North Pole, Alaska for a cancellation stamp!.. your kids can check that it really came from the North Pole (Alaska clearly is the nearest US Post Office for Santa:)
  • My loving wish for you to have a wonderful memory for your child this year and that you have a very blessed Christmas!.... of course, that's free!
