Over the past couple of months, I’ve really been enjoying the opportunity to meet more and more Canadian bloggers. In doing so, I was introduced to a tradition that started three years ago called The Great Canadian Blog Bash. Started up by three Canadian bloggers, the idea is to showcase Canadian pride via a blog post (which I will do shortly) as well as to showcase Canadian products and services via an all-Canadian giveaway (this post!).
The gals behind The Great Canadian Blog Bash have put together a fabulous prize package worth almost $1,700! It includes such Canadian classics as Tim Horton’s and Green Beaver, as well as some cool experiences such as Safari Niagara. So go on and enter that one too — I’d love to see a Coffee with Julie reader win!
Please note that if you are a friend or family member, you are also welcome to join in all of my giveaways! I know many of you hesitate, but hey, you’ve been reading this blog since day one and I owe ya’! I think it’s only fair.
Prize #1: The Canadian Homeowner Prize Pack (total value of $140)
This prize pack will help add those special Canadian touches and warmth to your home! It includes a $100 HBC gift certificate, a conversation-starter game for families ($10), and a lathe-turned wooden bowl with live edge made from a Maple burl ($30).
First up is a $100 gift certificate to Hudson’s Bay Company (HBC) from a Canadian company that knows exactly what it takes to make a dream home. Ottawa’s Shellstar Homes has been making family’s dreams come true for more than 40 years in Ottawa and its surrounding communities. Whether you’re looking for a custom-designed home or a renovation to your existing home, Shellstar Homes provides the personal, one-on-one service that makes what can be a daunting process into a fun and enjoyable one with beautiful results. (Trust me, I’ve personally been in many Shellstar Homes and they are drool-worthy!)
