@Laurena77 has won a $15 Amazon Gift Card from Myself and Cuff Turtle and a Holiday Card from Cuff!

Thank you to all our participants, finalists, and voters.

I’d like to give a special shout out to our runner up, “Presence over Presents” submitted by Vivian over at The Bloggette, who did a full court social media press to get the word out about the contest. It was very impressive and incredibly appreciated! Let’s give her a big round of applause and wish her the very best of luck as she takes on the WDW Marathon in 11 days! Show her some love by checking out her blog or following her on Instagram @readwriterunyoga

We had such a great response for #cuffsxmascontest2014 (some of our highest traffic days ever were from people casting their votes!) that Cuff and I will be working out some ideas and rules for another contest very soon. Until then, have a happy, healthy, 2015!

Cuff’s Christmas Contest 2014

Cuff Turtle is a sucker for the holiday season. She has her own “Cuff-sized” Christmas tree, holiday lights round her tank, and she is famous for sending out epic holiday cards each year. People email us when they move to make sure that their card from Cuff does not get lost in the mail. We wanted to see what you, our readers and followers, enjoy about the holidays. As a result we are conducting our first ever Instagram contest!

Here’s how it works….

Cuff & I want you to take pictures of things that inspire your holiday season. It can be anything… lights, trees, Salvation Army bell ringers, menorahs, shopping bags, snow fall, dreidels, reindeer, red Starbucks cups, candy canes, ect ect ect… Every Friday during December, Cuff and I will pick a few of our favorites and feature them on the blog. On December 26th we will pick our favorite five and open up a poll for our readers to cast their vote and the winner will receive a $15 gift certificate to Amazon and a holiday card from Cuff.

  • Photos must be between Friday November 28, 2014 – December 25 2014 at Midnight EST.
