The Kick*Ass 2012 Kickoff Contest

I don’t know about you guys, but 2011 has been seriously hard for me… and I know I’m not the only one.  I am ticking off the days on my calendar in anticipation of a fresh start…a new beginning…a universal do-over (don’t you wish life were as simple as a game of 4 square?) in the form of a new year.  I, for one, want to kick off 2012 with some serious Love, Positivity and Awesomeness.  How about you?

If you answered yes, then you’re in luck.  I, along with the help of some amazing artists, musicians, bloggers and all-round powerfully positive people, want to help you do just that.  One lucky winner will be getting The Ultimate Kick-ass 2012 Gift Basket overflowing with awesomeness.  Seriously…it’s pretty freakin’ awesome.  Let me go over the goodies with you and then I’ll tell you how to enter.

Goodies Up for Grabs

One lucky winner will receive:

A subscription to Love & Sequins courtesy of the ever fabulous Gala Darling.

Rooted (an e-course) from the lovely Megan Monique.

Goodies from the band Glasnost including:  2 T shirts (size M or L), not 1, not 2 but 4(!) CD’s (including a limited edition copy of Valis their 2008 Demos) and a set of buttons and stickers!  WoW!  They’re what The Cure and Joy Division’s lovechild would sound like.  They’ll make your ears happy.  That’s a promise.

2 “Fall in Love with your Life Coaching” sessions with Jo Anna Rothman of The Receiving Project (“The first session is the time to dream and explore. We will look into what it is you want to create in your life.  The second session will be in service to creating action to assist you in living the life of your dreams.

    I don’t tweet, so hopefully this one entry will be lucky enough! This has also been a difficult year for me, and I’d be absolutely delighted to win! Also, if you ever do something like this again, I create handmade, one of a kind jewelery, accessories, and art cards that I’d love to donate for something like this.

    • I will certainly keep you in mind. <3

  • Thelma Olson

    Wonder Woman was co-created by Elizabeth Marston

    • Have you seen the newest incarnation of Wonder Woman? I can’t say I like the new costume. I guess I’m a traditionalist…if it ain’t broke don’t fix it sort of mentality.

  • What a wonderful contest! I adore many of these contributors and am glad to discover the others. Crossing my fingers to win!

  • Courtney Donna Hugh

    My fav Chuck Norris joke–

    Chuck Norris doesn’t do a push up, he pushes the Earth down.
    ba dum dum tshhhhhhhhh

    (so lame, yet so awesome!)

    • Ha!
      There are some truly hilarious and massively cheesy Chuck Norris jokes out there. Thanks for sharing!

  • Elizabeth

    I would love the opportunity to win, thank you.

    • and an opportunity you shall have. <3

  • I feel like 2012 is going to be ‘my year’, and winning this contest would just be an amazing start, and a great sign from the universe! My offering is a joke from a Christmas cracker, so adjust your expectations accordingly:
    Q What did the sea say to the shore?
    A Nothing, it just waved.

    I also Tweeted, even though I wanted to keep this contest to myself and increase my odds! Hehe.

  • Jenn

    here is my entry: people who have a latex allergy are likely to also be allergic to kiwis 🙂

    • that is interesting…and very odd.

  • Annemarie

    Sooo, I liked all the pages and I’m SO glad I did! Reading through these amazing people’s pages was like a crash course in “How To Be Amazing!” Fun fact: Sloths don’t have normal teeth, they have pyramid teeth!

    • I’m so glad you’ve found some inspiration from everyone! WooHoo!
      I have a soft spot for sloths. They’re so cute! And I did not know that about their teeth. I did, however, know that they are covered with mold and algea. Gross but true.

  • Diana Kinsella

    I tweeted it but i think i did it wrong so i will try again, im new to tweeting.

    What am I?
    Im a slippery fish in a cloudy sea;
    Neither hook nor spear can capture me;
    with you hand you must hunt and seize me;
    To see that it end up in the dish.

    Answer Soap

    • clever riddle! Thanks for sharing.
      Just a reminder, Diana, that in order to be eligible you have to “like” all the facebook pages that are listed. <3

    Dumb Joke: how does the man in the moon cut his hair?

    Eclipse it!

  • Jeannie

    Perfect New Year giveaway! I hope this is open internationally. I’ll take a chance, regardless. 🙂

  • Hi!

    I liked all the pages AND Tweeted – a good exercise for me in actually sending Tweets and not just getting caught up in reading my feed 😉

    Happy New Year! Thanks!

  • Aimee

    Right, so two… count them, two jokes for your enjoyment miss…

    1: What do you call an elephant in a phone booth?

    2: What is green and brown, kinda furry, has 4 legs, and if it falls out of a tree will kill you?

    Anyhoodles, I actually stopped by all of the places I hadn’t been before… and hey, I really am digging on glasnost’s music. Right up my alley, Alli! HA! Really diggin on Megan Monique too. Will give everyone else a looksee as soon as I finish this little old post. I already like you, so I didn’t click that one…. Oh! And so totally digging on the sculpture!

    Ok, you’ve waited on the answers this long…

    1: STUCK!!!

    2. A pool table

    And I bid you goodnight!

  • Random trivia: The reason you bless people when they sneeze is, apparently, that back in the day, people believed that when you sneezed, your soul left your body for a moment- and that if you weren’t blessed, a demon might come in and possess you. Even though times have changed since then, I think it’s still a nice way of showing you care 🙂
