I'm having an online Pajama Party--and You're Invited!
This past holiday season I ran a column and photo about the red and white pjs that Grandma Hale gave me for Christmas when I was a kid, and book club readers pleasantly flooded my inbox with pajama memories of their own. Reading those delightful pajama emails, along with a dare from book club reader Martha Huntley have inspired me to have an online Pajama Party and you're all invited: "Loved the picture of you in your red and white jammies. Now I want to see a picture of you in this year's pjs! Dare ya!"
Here's how it works. This isn't a writing contest, it's a PJ Party. Simply email pajama remembrances; nothing fancy. For example: a few lines about today's favorite pjs or ones you wore as a kid, pajama traditions in your family; are you a nightgown, button-up, or fancy pj person? Or maybe, the heck with pajamas, you wear an old t-shirt to bed! Email your thoughts about pjs, and if you can (but it's not necessary), please email a photo of you in your favorite pjs (now or when you were young), or even a photo of your pet in their pjs. Readers love to see photos and so do I. If you were one of the readers who sent an email about pajama traditions in your family after you read my original pj column, resend your note and you'll be entered in the Pajama Party Giveaway.
Yes--there's a fun giveaway, too! A gorgeous, leather-bound colorful set of 12 monthly journals, slippers, pajamas, books to read when you're in your pajamas (including some copies of my book, Muffins and Mayhem), sleeping masks, pillows, blankets, hot water bottles, and some lullabies on CDs to help you drift off to sleep.
To see me in my pajamas--when I was a kid and now (yes, I took your dare Martha), the fun pajama things I'm giving away, and how to enter, goto: https://tinyurl.com/6gavvnr
Can't wait to hear from you and hopefully to see you in your pjs! You're invited to the online Pajama Party--have fun!
Thanks for reading with me. It's so good to read with friends.
