Non-Crappy Holiday Giveaway

The holidays are coming! Let’s all panic and stuff.

You might think I’d be writing a bunch of holiday themed posts right about now, but instead, I’ll link to some of the ones I already wrote.

Because I’m lazy.

Toy Wish Lists Through The Ages

Teaching the Art of Accepting Crappy Gifts

Thank You For the Fisher-Price Dog, No Really

Watching Rudolph

Holiday Photo Cards

Wish Lists

And actually, I have something better than a post lined up today. A giveaway. A giveaway of all the crappy stuff!

This is what you could win:


You could win:

Wait. WTF is that house ornament here for? Because I said so. Because I wanted to have something holiday flavored in there. Because woodmouse is one of the things I did before I did, um, this and had no time left to do that. (I reopened my shop on a whim, for the first time in almost three years a few days ago. Though it will close again in three days for the holidays.) As Crappy Boy pointed out, “Mama, your woodmouse stuff actually looks like your crappy pictures stuff.” And although I’ve never thought of it that way, I guess he’s right. So there you have it.

One lucky winner will receive a box from me with all those goodies inside and perhaps a couple more fun things too. Books will be signed. I’ll probably draw pictures. It will be awesome.

a Rafflecopter giveaway


Enter above via Rafflecopter! Closes Monday, December 15th, 2014. Winner will be announced here.

  30. Hanna Baker says:

    I suppose books that make me laugh aren’t good for nursing babies to sleep, but they would be great for unwinding before bed after long exhausting days! Those are the only times I get to read anymore. 🙁

  31. Katie says:

    december is too busy for new posts, love the old ones!

  32. Gretchen says:

    I wonder if unicorns ever get horn-envy when comparing their piece to other unicorns in the clouds.

  128. Elizabeth says:

    Nice package, hope you’ll ship internationally…

    My nickname growing up was “farkle”. Who knows why, but anyway, that’s why I voted that Farkles is female.

  134. Jessica L says:

    I will sing you a Christmas song. Sorry, it’s off-key. Way off-key. Like, you probably won’t recognize the tune:

    Jingle bells
    Batman smells
    Robin laid an egg
    The bat mobile lost a wheel
    And Joker got away. Hey!

  135. Jessie says:

    I have fallen in love with your blog! Amazing!

  154. Robin says:

    This would be the crappiest Christmas present ever. 🙂 Honestly though, it would be great! I gave my mom Parenting for her birthday and my sister (a preschool teacher with no children) loved it so much that she asked me to pull out my copy at the family Thanksgiving meal. Because Penis Pizza is just the right read aloud for a Thanksgiving dinner for 14.

    Thanks for making a roomful of adults and teens laugh until they cried (the four children in the room thought we were crazy).

  155. Frances says:

    Squee! This would be awesome!

    You are so funny. I really enjoy your blog.

  166. Christina says:

  191. Cecilia says:

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    I already have the Parenting book, but have been coveting the rest so it would be so great to win (and I’d pass along the parenting book to my sister-in-law who’s having a baby next month and needs to be prepared)!

  192. Sparki says:

    Blasphemies! I forgot to write up my “how we met” story to enter the other giveaway. =-\. It was good too, it involved the phrase “I am NOT a stalker!” Oh well.

    I am SO excited for the new book to come out!!! Imagine how your kid is feeling about Christmas, that’s how I’m feeling about Crappy Marriage. lol. (Except I don’t know number of days. It’s easier to wait if I make myself forget it’s coming out, and how can I do that if I count days?)

  193. Megan says:

    What tree wouldn’t be complete without an official Crappy Ornament™? Or a Crappy Present™ or two? And yes, one day maybe even a Crappy Wine™…

  194. Nikki Nolte says:

    i would love love love to win this!!!!

  195. Susan says:

    Love your blog! Merry Christmas!

  196. Kirsten says:

  197. Jackie says:

    Those would totally be awesome gifts. Thanks, Amber.

  198. Pam says:

    I love how your posts make me feel – nostalgic for my younger days, but not with that icky, too-sweet feeling; like I’m wearing rose-coloured glasses, but with fingerprints all over them!

  209. Tara says:

    Already pre-ordered your marriage book and bought your crappy parenting book at the same time. I gave it to my husband to read while he is out on the road (truck driver) and he has called me many times laughing so hard he was crying because of your book!! We both cant wait for your marriage book to arrive! If I happen to win, I will be gifting both the books to friends of ours who are sure to love them as much as we will.

  293. Rita says:

    Hi, this is going to sound really stalker-ish but I just love everything about you! Your crappy drawings, your sense of humour, your art and especially your blog!! I’m like a kid in a candy store checking it every day, brimming with excitement at the prospect of a new post or whatever else I might find. Today was Christmas and all the fun holidays rolled into one with your awesome giveaway raffle. I live in South Africa (South African and all) and growing up I had something that was a cross between building blocks and puzzle pieces that I loved to play with. They were these thick curved pieces of rubber in all kinds of squiggly shapes and vibrant colours and your cool Christmas tree ornament reminds me of that! You could stack them or entertwine them or make them them fit in all kinds of weird and wonderful ways. Kept us busy for hours. Something about the curves … So thanks for the blast from the past! I don’t have the foggiest idea what they were called, otherwise I would’ve uploaded a link/piccy so that you can see what I mean. Something educational nonetheless. I’m keeping my fingers finged .. er crossed for myself because your giveaway would make an amazing prezzy to myself. I would LUV to own your books. I’m so excited to be in the draw!!! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! Warm Wishes, Rita xoxo

  294. Kim Coleman says:

    Your drawings always impress me! I am in awe of your talent. Love your blog!

  295. Emma says:

    Merry Christmas! I love your blog!

  296. Rita says:

    P.S. Correction: This giveaway ornament doesn’t have the curves that I was talking about, but the ones on your Etsy page do.

  360. Kat says:

    Farkles is male because it sounds like farts, and according to the little girls in my neighborhood growing up, only boys fart.

  361. Sanj says:

    Now I’m thinking about whether Farkles is a girl or a boy. I think the energy of both, maybe, so that they can be endless and we won’t run out of unicorns.
    Ok, now onto this: Thank you for being creative and fun! And for offering your books and calendars and an ornament.

    My daughter just had her 2nd baby (a girl!) so now her first baby (a boy!) has a built-in best friend. (So families are not unlike unicorns, I guess.) Hooray! Happy Solstice to all!

  517. meredith says:

    Oooh! Pick me!

  518. Stephanie says:

    “Teaching the art of accepting crappy gifts” will always be one of my favorite posts. Probably because my heart still sinks when relatives who have known me my whole life give gifts better suited for themselves, and then I have to put on an oscar-nominated performance for them. Wish they wouldn’t waste their money. Kids are so lucky to get to be sincere and not be chastised for it.

    • lsg1378 says:

      Yup. I would rather get nothing, than a present I regift (usually to an op shop – brand new still in packet/box)
      In the last few years tho, I have been giving them back to the giver! … “You obviously like it, and I’m not going to use it, so have it back” =)
      It has worked a treat! Now, I get money or something they have already asked if I will find useful. Win!

  519. Carrie says:

    Your posts make me smile.

  520. Rachel says:

    Amber, your posts never fail to make me laugh! And your drawings, I’m sorry to say, are totally UNcrappy. Amazing work. I love it. And I’d love to read your books 🙂

  521. Mary says:

    I love your etsy shop! Simply beautiful and fun! Stop being so talented already 🙂

  542. Jennifer says:

  551. SJH says:

    You really need to reformat your mobile site so the comment box appears *before* all the comments and not after! I had to scroll through almost 600 to get here! But I am nothing if not stubborn.

  552. I always enjoy reading your blog! I have hardly touched my own blog in ages (so long that I’m not even sure the link above is correct), but I do enjoy following the adventures of the Crappy Family …

  559. Di says:

    I’m so happy that you reopened the shop! I remember drooling over your pieces a million years ago, and daydreaming about how fun it would be to do that. Finally, two months ago, we finally did start using the scroll saw that I bought two years ago, with that purpose in mind. Thank you for the inspiration.

  560. C.d. says:

    Great giveaway! Thank you for offering it!

  561. Rachael K says:

  566. Lisa P says:

    Awesome giveaway!

  567. Missus T Webster says:

    FYI – this is the website I use for when I’m sick and feeling miserable. I read through the blogs and laugh until I feel better. Recently, my son was home sick and insisted that I read Penis Pizza and Potty Training posts to him – out loud! With funny voices and everything. . . ok he read the crappy boy parts, and the crappy Dad parts when they appeared. Still this was a fun thing to do on a day home sick. 🙂

  573. Elena Harnecker says:

    oh, I want them!!! Crappy things for the holidays is the perfect gift!

  574. Ellen says:

    Farkles must be male because his name sounds a little like “fart”. So there!

  575. Crystal_b says:

    Hey! Love the blog! And I hope I win 🙂 I put the book on my Christmas list, but if I get it I will give the non-signed one to a friend.

  576. Leeanna H. says:
