A fun Easter Hunt and Giveaway
I hope everyone is having a beautiful Easter weekend and are able to spend some time with family and friends. As a child I always loved Easter for all the colors, egg hunts and that new little toy to kick off spring. Seeing kids searching for those elusive eggs still puts a smile on my face and seeing the joy in their eyes is priceless. This is also a time to reflect on the blessings we all have in our lives and just be thankful.
The Emporium wanted to have a little Easter fun so what better way than a Easter Hunt. How does it work you ask…well, the details are as follows:
Starting here on this blog post you will receive your first letter (let’s call it your Easter egg). Along with this ‘egg’ you will be directed to your next stop in the hunt. At each stop along the way you will not only gather ‘eggs’ (letters) that will spell out a phrase but, you will see some of our creative ways to share them with you. We will be using blogs, Twitter, and Instagram through our hunt so if you are not already a part of these forms of social media it is a perfect time to get connected. Our links should take you to the sites whether you are signed up to that social media or not so don’t fret, all are welcome! (Clicking on the photo when in instagram will display the caption for where to go next if you are not already signed up on Instagram). Many of us use these forms to reach our readers and love your comments, likes, retweets, and follows. By joining these media forms it is way you are always able to see what we are up to and are sharing. Easy peasy huh? Nothing better than an Easter hunt everyone can take part in.
This fun Easter Hunt will continue through until Monday with lots of stops along the way. Once you have gathered all of your eggs and have put them together to complete the phrase, please forward your answer to me at firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight on Wednesday, April 23th, 2014(Do not include your final phrase in the comments but would love to hear how you are making there). From these submissions we will be drawing for what you ask… Well, Jennifer McGuire has generously given the Inspiration Emporium three spots to attend what sounds like an incredible online class…
