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.

  1. Minelle says:

    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!!


  2. Katie says:

    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!!!! 😛

    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 ❤ to the spanked elf in the corner,



  3. catrouble says:

    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!” 😀



  4. Katie says:

    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!


  5. Ami says:

    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!


  6. terpsichore says:

    Love the conversation going on here! 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!


  7. catrouble says:

    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! 😀


  8. Roz says:

    Ooh this is so much fun. Can’t wait! The artwork is awesome! Kudos to Minelle and Katie. Giggling at all the comments above LoL



    • Anastasia Vitsky says:

      You can sign up on Monday (November 25th) for the pre-registration. Then come back on Sunday, December 1st for the first Advent Calendar post. Leave a comment each day December 1st-24th and come back on the 25th to see who has won prizes. There will also be prizes along the way. 🙂


  9. Irishey says:

    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!
