Ana’s Advent Calendar 2013


Do you remember, if you were lucky, having an advent calendar as a child?  The traditional kind had small, perforated paper windows to open for each day of December.  Each day’s window revealed a small surprise.  Usually it was a piece of chocolate or candy.  I never had one, but I envied the children who did.  Guess what?  We’re going to have an Advent Calendar, but we’re going to do it my way!

How will the advent calendar work, Ana style?  There will be rules.  Of course there will be rules.

  • Sign up!  (Bonus point if you sign up before December 1st!) Be sure to leave your email address (so I can contact you if you are a winner) and book preferences (S for spanking, K for kinky or edge, and V for vanilla)!  This will ensure that I track your comments to give you credit for each day that you play.  If you have any trouble leaving a comment, please let me know immediately by email.  If you do not sign up, you will not get credit for your entries!
  • Play daily.  Leave a comment responding to a post or answering a daily Advent Calendar question.  Only one comment per post will count as an entry, but you are welcome and encouraged to leave additional comments as part of the conversation.
  • Check for the winner list on Christmas Day!  Those who participate the most will win!

Yup, that’s it!  Oh, you want more rules?  Well, if you insist.  ;)

  • Surprise Checks!  Prizes will be awarded during random “surprise checks” throughout the month.  It may be the first person to post on a certain day, a randomly selected commenter on a randomly selected day, the first person to mention a secret word, or anything else.  Surprise!
  • Perfect Attendance award!  Everyone who comments every day (by midnight EST on the day of each post) of the month will win a small surprise.
  • Free book days!  A few authors will be offering one or more books free on select days in December.  Check for details on the blog throughout the month.

    Guess what everyone? The inspiration for the wee elf in the corner was our very own Ms Ana! Yes, I kept thinking about how naughty she is and my pencil flew! Katie did such a wonderful job with the banner!!
    I can’t wait Ana this is so much fun!!

    • Anastasia Vitsky November 15, 2013 at 8:05 am Reply

      HEY! That’s not me! I’m innocent, I tell you! :)

      Thank you for the wonderful artwork, Minelle!

  2. Sue Lyndon November 15, 2013 at 8:29 am Reply

    I LOVE the artwork! LOL and I agree, Ana is most definitely the naughty elf in the corner. :)

    • Anastasia Vitsky November 15, 2013 at 8:43 am Reply

      Sue! I’m telling Mrs. Claus. That is most definitely not me in the corner. I’m sure it’s Minelle. Or Katie. Or you.

  3. abby November 15, 2013 at 8:52 am Reply

    Great Art work Minelle! LOL..sorry Ana you get my vote as corner girl!
    hugs abby

    heh a naughty elf :D for my part, I didn’t think it was supposed to be you, Ana :D

    • Anastasia Vitsky November 15, 2013 at 9:27 am Reply

      Joelle, I always knew I liked you! Thank you, dear. Please help yourself to one of Mrs. Claus’ famous sugar cookies.

      Seriously Joelle? You know she is our very own mischief maker!

      • Anastasia Vitsky November 15, 2013 at 9:39 am Reply

        MINELLE! Don’t take away the ONE person who actually voted for me.

        • minellesbreath November 15, 2013 at 9:42 am Reply

          I am on you’re side! You deserve attention with that spoon!!

          • Anastasia Vitsky November 15, 2013 at 9:45 am Reply

            Hey! No, you’re not on my side if you’re voting for Katie. I’m withholding your paycheck, too.

            *grumbles about rebellious friends*

      • Joelle Casteel November 15, 2013 at 9:42 am Reply

        well if you must know, MInelle, my specialty is bratting- just ask my Master :D so it’s just as likely that it’s me in the corner :D

  5. Katie November 15, 2013 at 9:36 am Reply

    Let it be known, by said graphic designer of Minelle’s brilliant work of art, that when she talked to me about that drawing, the ELF was most definitely our very own ANA!!!! If one glances at the font to the left, and notes the detail in the “A” of ANA, one can see that I painstakingly painted layers of polka dots in photoshop to match Ana’s very own panties that are, umm, pulled down in the picture. Let’s just say that naughty elf Ana had best think about her behavior and why she is in that corner!!!! :P

    I love working with you and Minelle on this stuff! It’s been so much fun! Such talented friends!! :) Ana- you’ve worked really hard setting this up! It is appreciated! I cannot wait to play! Many hugs and <3 to the spanked elf in the corner,


    • Anastasia Vitsky November 15, 2013 at 9:38 am Reply

      That does it, Katie! I’m withholding your paycheck. :D

      Thank you for all of the time you put into making the banner and button so great. Really makes all the work with it.

      I shall tell the elf that she is receiving hugs. Since that is NOT me. Hmph.

      And don’t you dare tattle on Mrs. Claus about me. :P

    • minellesbreath November 15, 2013 at 9:40 am Reply

      YES! Those panties are definitely polka dotted and Ms ANA is the naughty elf!! Good going Katie, that makes it all shine! Her red butt that is!!

      • Anastasia Vitsky November 15, 2013 at 9:42 am Reply

        Aw come on, you two! No fair ganging up on little sweet Ana. I will protest.

        • minellesbreath November 15, 2013 at 9:45 am Reply

          Protest all you want it doesn’t change the truth…and may make your stay in the corner just that much longer!

          • Anastasia Vitsky November 15, 2013 at 9:46 am Reply

            Hey! You can’t tell me what to do!

            • catrouble November 15, 2013 at 9:51 am Reply

              Don’t think she’s ‘telling’ you what to do…them’s the rules…the more you protest, the longer you stay in the corner! :D

            • minellesbreath November 15, 2013 at 9:54 am Reply

              Want to bet??? I have pen and paper!

                Geesh, everyone! I’m trying to be a professional author here…have some respect! :P

          • Katie November 15, 2013 at 9:50 am Reply

            Elf Ana needs more attention with that wooden spoon, Minelle. Let’s see… Seems as though a certain naughty elf is arguing. Doesn’t it???
            Paging Mrs. Claus to Blogland!!

            • minellesbreath November 15, 2013 at 9:53 am Reply

              YES!! You are right arguing gets you a red bottom and more time in the corner….with Mrs. Claus.

            • Anastasia Vitsky November 15, 2013 at 9:53 am Reply

              Yikes! Shh..there’s no need to call Mrs. Claus. I’m sure she is VERY busy getting ready for the season. We don’t want to make her crabby, do we?

              • minellesbreath November 15, 2013 at 9:55 am Reply

                You have a choice to make dear!

                • Anastasia Vitsky November 15, 2013 at 9:56 am Reply

                  You are not allowed to use my lines against me. Hmph.

                  • Katie November 15, 2013 at 10:02 am

                    On the contrary, Miss Ana Naughty Elf in the Corner, there is clearly satisfaction to be had in reusing a certain person’s lines!!!! Don’t you want to make all of Blogland happy as we start the holiday season??

                    Yes she must make her choice, Minelle!!!! Oh and the only paycheck that I need is for ELF ANA to behave!!! And if that means more Mrs. Claus then so be it!!! :D

  6. catrouble November 15, 2013 at 9:49 am Reply

    Sorry Ana but the artist said that you were the elf waiting for a spanking. After all the work you did on Spank or Treat and getting the Advent Calendar organized, you know you need it. ;)

    Kudos to Minelle and Katie on the artwork and graphics! Looking forward to the fun!

    Hugs and blessings to, as Katie said “the spanked elf in the corner!” :D


    • Anastasia Vitsky November 15, 2013 at 9:54 am Reply

      Hmph. You’re next. Cat, and I mean next!

      Whether I need it is beside the point. Naughty you.

      I shall convey your hugs and blessings to the spanked elf in the corner who is NOT me. :D

      • catrouble November 15, 2013 at 5:38 pm Reply

        Ana! And I was even nice enough to put a link to this post on my blog! Sheesh!!!

        She deserves it. But you and Katie deserve it more.

        • Katie November 15, 2013 at 11:25 am Reply

          Cat??? No don’t do that to her, Minelle!!! Her posts make me smile. She goes in the nice corner. Not the naughty one where Elf Ana is!

        Minelle! What did I do to you?

        • Anastasia Vitsky November 15, 2013 at 10:38 pm Reply

          Don’t question Minelle. She’s the talented artist who made this all happen. You should listen to her, Cat. :)

          • catrouble November 16, 2013 at 12:39 am Reply

            ANA! Why is it you can question Minelle when she’s doing something you don’t agree with but I’m just supposed to listen without questioning? Hmmm…something doesn’t sound right about that! ;)

            • Anastasia Vitsky November 16, 2013 at 12:40 am Reply

              Because I bribe…er, I mean I show my appreciation to Minelle in other ways. ;)

  7. Emily Tilton November 15, 2013 at 10:01 am Reply

    Hello, everyone! It’s very important that I announce to you that by the kind consent of Mrs. Claus herself, *I* am the elf!

    (Did I do that right? LOL)

    • Anastasia Vitsky November 15, 2013 at 10:01 am Reply

      HOORAY! Love ya, Emily. You’re my hero. It’s official, everyone.

    • PT Wyant December 25, 2013 at 10:42 am Reply

  8. Katie November 15, 2013 at 10:07 am Reply

    Emily!!!!??? Nice to meet you! But umm… once again that elf IS ANA!!!! If she is bribing you with candy cane treats, etc., well, that is not allowed. Minelle. Are you there? Talk to Mrs. Claus, would you. More corner time in order!

  9. LA Cloutier November 15, 2013 at 11:14 am Reply

    It’s obvious that the elf is indeed ANA! The poka-dots on the undies gives it away…~giggles~ Such a cute elf too!

    Minelle nad Katie – you are both so talented that it is scary!

    And the elf is most definitely Ana because I happen to know the shop she purchased those knickers from!

    Didn’t you know I am (ahem!) something of an authority on knickers! Are there any other naughty little elves who want a Christmas pair, tinsel included – believe me I can arrange shipping!

    • Anastasia Vitsky November 15, 2013 at 12:42 pm Reply

      Ami!! I thought we were friends! You swore not to tell about the shops. Just because I don’t have the luxurious designer knickers that you have…

      Minelle needs a pair of polka-dotted panties because she’s next for the corner.

      Tinsel knickers? Now I’ve heard it all! Photo, please? :)

      • Ami November 15, 2013 at 3:00 pm Reply

        You wait Missus!!! I am now determine to track them down! And I have lots of polka-dotted knickers, pure organic cotton, extremely comfortable, and with contrasting lace around the legs!

        I shall do my best to send you a photo! LOL!

I think I will stand at the sidelines and let you all work it out. :-) I do appreciate the beautiful talent of Minelle and Katie and the creative efforts of Ana to host this event and I can’t wait to participate…sign me up please! (terpsichore7atgmaildotcom) :-) Maybe I’m not supposed to sign up yet – does that mean I’ve broken the rules already??? perhaps I should read the instructions again as I did not sleep much last night :-) Anyhow…have a happy day!

      LOL The sign up sheet isn’t up yet, but it will be up soon. Never fear! Head Elf Ana (NOT in the corner) will make everything clear.

      I can’t wait to have you play! It will be so much fun.

      Hope you get some sleep! Maybe you shouldn’t get so many spankings into the wee hours of the night. Hehe.

    Hey all you that are threatening each other with Mrs. Claus…didn’t she dish out spankings last year for elves threatening others with spankings in her name and for tattletales? If so, all y’all better hope she doesn’t read this conversation! Oh and Emily…Mrs. Claus doesn’t give GG spankings so ya might want to rethink volunteering to take Ana’s place! :D

    • Anastasia Vitsky November 15, 2013 at 6:04 pm Reply

      Ummmm. Maybe. But Mrs. Claus is very busy in a land far, far away. If she does show up, I’ll send her to you. With all of my love. :D

      And shh…Emily doesn’t know that. Yet.

    • Emily Tilton November 15, 2013 at 6:28 pm Reply

    Well, my goodness! All sorts of orneriness going on here! I missed this post when it came out. Glad you linked to it from your sign-up post, Ana. The comments are a riot! :-)

    Okay, spill. Why is everyone ganging up on you? Make it a good enough excuse – err… reason – and I’ll run interference for you. Nobody should have to wear those scary elf shoes and funky polka-dot knickers without good cause!

      Please do run interference! There can’t be any real reason because everyone knows Mrs. Claus loves me. :D

        Ak! Nearly choked on me Special K, such was the cheekiness of this cheeky fib.

        Mrs Claus is going to leave your bottom as red as her dress if you’re not careful :P

    I’m not sure why but this website is loading incredibly slow
    for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it
    a problem on my end? I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.

Thank you so much for joining the discussion! Please play nicely or you may be asked to stand in the corner. ;)
