Introducing the One Days of Giveaways! A new CZ Design holiday tradition (at least for this year)


I always wished I had a ginormous operating budget for my blog to do an awesomely huge holiday giveaway as a way to say thank you for reading my blog.

You know, think Oprah's Favorite Things, but CZ Design-style. On Day One, you'd win an orange sweatshirt. On Day Two, you'd win three sessions with Joe, my physical therapist. On Day Three, a blue raspberry ICEE. And on Day Four, a new car!

But right now I only have the means for a One Days of Giveaways™ (just kidding, it's not trademarked), and I think it's pretty awesome.

Today, I have three copies of the brand spankin' new Photoshop Elements 12 for three of you. It's so new that I don't even have a copy yet. But of course, no copy of Photoshop Elements would be as much fun without digital goodies to play with, so each of the three winners will get their choice of any 10 of my products (no limits on what you choose).



TO ENTER: Just tell me what you are most looking forward to this month. That's the first way to enter.

A second way to enter? If you haven't already, please Like my Facebook page, come back here, post a comment and tell me that it is so.

A third way to enter? Follow me on Twitter, come back here and again, leave me a comment and tell me that it is so.

A fourth way to enter? If you already follow me on Twitter and Facebook, leave me a comment and tell me, "Um, Hello? Been doing that for, like, ever!"

This gives people a chance to enter multiple times. 

This giveaway will stay open until Thursday night, and I'll post the winners on Friday. 

Thank you for reading my blog. I genuinely appreciate your comments and your visits. I'm really going to work to make 2014 more fun, more real and more informative. And always, as crap free as possible.

This giveaway is now closed. Check back on Friday morning to see if you're a winner.


I don't look good in orange so glad you're offering PSE12 rather than the sweatshirt :) Looking forward to our neighbourhood party - it's a tradition that I love!

I am looking forward to baking Christmas cookies with my boys!

I liked your Facebook page (as AmandaD)

I've got you on my twitter list now too!

I tried leaving a comment about what I'm looking forward to but it's not posting...but my other ones are. Sorry if this is a duplicate, but I love the holiday cheer everywhere & how everybody's mood is lifted.

Wow! What a generous giveaway! Thank you so much!
I'm looking forward to slowing down a bit (work wise) so I can take part in the holidays!

I am looking forward to spending quality time with my hubby and son.

Seeing my family! :)

Watching old Christmas movies while my friend Carol and I try to figure out my new Silhouette!

Thanks so much for all you do, Cathy.

Hey Cathy! I am looking forward to my kids seeing Santa and telling him what they want for Christmas, to attending carols by candlelight, to the big man coming and seeing my children's faces and to celebrating family and all that is good in life. I have followed you for a long time (years?) on Facebook and Twitter. :)

Thanks for your awesome One Days of Giveaways. ;)

Hello Again. I liked your Facebook page! Thanks!!!

Spending time with dad and sister.

I'm looking forward to a couple of college basketball games, baking with my girls and being with family.

My in laws spend Christmas in Florida, and every other year we do the same. I love the little shot of warm weather in the middle of my Michigan winter! Can't wait!

I'm looking forward to Christmas with all 3 adult children here and one daughter in law! Yes everyone! Thank you!

"Liked" you on facebook!

"Following you" on Twitter!

I'm looking forward to having everyone home for the holidays...some lazy mornings catching up with my college kids, non-rushed together time. So excited!

I am looking forward to going to the Grand Canyon, THEN decorating for Christmas!

I have liked you on FB (and in virtual life) for a long time!

Looking forward to spending time with family doing the some winter activities like snowmobiling, watching the snow fall, laying on the floor looking up at the christmas tree lights!

As far as FB goes, "Um, Hello? Been doing that for, like, ever!" But I don't Twitter. Enough is enough-it's not you!

Looking forward to baking with my daughter.

I am looking forward to seeing all the Christmas card pictures roll in. I add them to the scrapbook instead of wondering what to do with them like I did for years.

I am a fan on Facebook - have been for a long time now!

I'm looking forward to seeing the faces of those whom I've gifted this year, especially my 3 year old grandson who wants everything he see's on TV! What's that saying "It's better to give than receive?" (I secretly like to receive a little something in my stocking too!)

I just signed up to follow you on Twitter.

It may not be a big budget Oprah-style giveaway but heck it's one huge, stonking & fabulous gift. I don't have the latest software either and would step over designers in the street for a copy lol. I'd also sell my grandma for any of your digital designs. But , it's the season of goodwill, so instead, I'm leaving a comment lol. All is well here in the UK. Pxx

looking forward to relaxing and spending time with family after a busy month of getting ready for Christmas.

I've been a Facebook friend of yours for a while now!

Twitter? I'd follow you on that if only I knew how? Does that count? A girl can dream.

I'm most looking forward to Christmas with my brother and his family since we don't get to see them very often.

I'm looking forward to 2 weeks off during the holidays since I just got a job in a school, woot {still a kid at heart}. Seriously spending time with family and a visit to my bff in Fla will make me happy. Thanks for a chance at great One Days prizes!

I look forward to reading your blog posts :)

I'm looking forward to holiday events with friends and family. A little decorating, lots of eating and good company. Since I don't do Facebook or Twitter, I'll have to hope that this entry is the winning number! Love your stuff- Merry Christmas.

Love give-aways and PSE12 would be fabulous to win! I still use PSE8. This month I am most looking forward to some peace and rest. We don't do big holidays much - mostly just family (rather small at this time), good food (how could you not in South Louisiana) and Holiday themed movies.

I'm looking forward to having my eldest home from University so we can spend some family time together! Enjoy the season. I love that your are mindful that Aidan is off to College next year.

Friday Night Movie Night - Christmas style with my kids.

I am most looking forward to having all three of my daughters back home and our Christmas Eve traditions - dinner out, visiting neighborhoods with lots of Christmas lights, then watching "Elf" before bed.

I liked your facebook page a long long time ago.

I am looking forward to cruising the Med for the festive season.

I have "liked" (loved) you on Facebook since your page first went up!

I'm looking forward to exams being finished (I teach college) so that I can get into the holiday spirit.

"Um, Hello? Been doing that for, like, ever!"

I follow you on twitter and Instagram and liked you on FB.

The thing I look forward to the most is baking together with my husband who is a pastry chef in his spare time, as a hobby. We bake the tradional Christmas pasties and breads from our native Holland and some specialties from Germany and Switzerland like WeihnachtStollen bread. I'm always in awe how get makes the almond filling fresh and by hand.
It's one if the few traditions we have being kid-less at home and living in another country your traditions tend to change.

December 26th - This is the first year divorced and the ex has the kids for Christmas. I get them back on December 26th and my college son is flying back from his dad's with the other too. I will have all my "babies" home with me.

looking forward to some time together!

Hello Cathy, More fun in 2014!!! 2013 was already a treat. Really love your blog and facebook page.
I love decorating the tree with husband and kids. And then all together on the couch watching a movie.

And if it matters, you're piped into my Instagram feed as well ;). I'm a CZ junkie, apparently.

I am most looking forward to spending time with my family and a day or two off consecutively. And Um, hello, I already follow you on twitter and facebook, have an email subscription (which has its own folder like AE remember), and read the blog too.
I'm not stalking, honest. :)

I am looking forward to spending time with family and celebrating the birth of our Savior!

I'm looking forward to all of the holidays traditions with my family.

I like you on Facebook!!

I'm looking forward to the annual Christmas concert at the Middle School - I've got a percussionist and a first chair clarinet, and they both sing in the chorus too! I'm also looking forward to my youngest's Holiday Show where she will perform three different dances: tap, jazz and ballet! It's a super busy photo-taking month, and having a new PSE to edit all those photos would be the bomb-diggity. :) As for the entering qualifications - "Um, Hello? Been doing that for, like, ever!" :) Happy Holidays to you and yours, Cathy!

Looking forward to this month - working on projects.

I follow you on FB [and have for a while].

I've been following you on Twitter for seemingly eons now.

I liked your Facebook page :-)

Family Time. Christmas traditions - music, the meaning of Christmas, etc.

I'm looking so forward to my daughter and husband moving back to our home town after living in Northern Idaho for over 2 years. I read your blog, and follow you on facebook too. I also get your newsletter!

I'm looking forward to our family Christmas Cruise! :)
And um… I've been following you on Facebook and Twitter… for … like… EVER! :)
LOVE your blog!!!

I'm looking forward to being wrapped up in the spirit of the season! I want to really get to the core of the holidays and spend more time with family playing games, baking, talking & just enjoying each other!

First of all, I love your "One Days of Giveaways" line! That is so you and the reason I follow you everywhere. Next, there is so much to choose from that I'm looking forward to in December since my hubby and I also have birthdays this month, but what I'm looking forward to the most is having my oldest child back home from college so we can all be together again. He is a freshman in a Boston are college and we are back here in Texas and he hasn't been home since we dropped him off at school in August. I miss him so much!

Oh, put my name in for that orange sweatshirt!!! Orange is the new black, or so they say LOL

I'm looking forward to our super secret surprise Disney trip in only 2 days... although I must admit I'm most looking forward to REVEALING the trip to my 7 year old daughter. I've been You Tube-ing (is that verb?) Disney surprise videos for weeks now and I cry at most of them.

I'm so looking forward to taking 2 weeks off at the end of the year and spending quality time with my kiddos - and hopefully getting set up for Project Life 2014 since I fell off the bandwagon pretty early this year. I'm thinking digital is the way to go, and your shop is my first stop! If I win, I'd love to donate Elements to someone else who could use it - I've got access to the Adobe Cloud through work.... Thanks for the chance!

I already follow you on FB!

I am looking forward to the whole month! I love it all, from the frenzied preparation to the celebratory Christmas Eve champagne and the annual viewing of "It's A Wonderful Life"
And I've liked you on FB since it was a personal page, but I just don't tweet. Does IG count? Because I follow you there. And I get your newsletter. So it's probably just as well I don't tweet because even to myself I am beginning to sound like a stalker....
