December Giveaway

A week ago Saturday, I erroneously mentioned that I was going to have a giveaway for SewMamaSew giveawaypalooza. Except I got my dates wrong. Yeah, sounds like me. :) Well it gave me time to think and to change my mind, slightly. I am not going to link up to SMS (although I highly recommend stopping by - there is great loot!) because I would rather have this giveaway go to all of you who make a trip to stop by on a regular basis. Thank you so much for coming to visit me.

So for you I put together a bunch of goodies including an I-spy Charm pack and quilt pattern.  This will be the grand prize for the first winner chosen, but I will also pick 5 others and send you one of my patterns (your choice.) So if you'd like to enter feel free to leave a comment. Giveaway goes until Friday, Dec 16 at midnight MST.  GIVEAWAY CLOSED.  Winners listed at the bottom of the post.

Homemade Christmas Crackers for sharing with the 2nd grade class about "Christmas in England" 

I may be a little bit scarce this week - we've got a full slate of Christmas hoopla going on (Orchestra performance, dance recital, elementary school Christmas sing, piano performance, 2nd grade class party, husband's office party . . .  and somewhere in there I need to find time to finish all the Christmas shopping before the kids get out for Christmas vacation on Friday. Whew!) I'm still waiting for the "all is calm" part of Christmas to show up, but I'll take the craziness too.

Grand prize winner: Jennie!

Pattern winners: Elle, mjb, Cassandra, Christie S. & Theresa

Would love to win! Have a great vacation!

Samantha said...

Aww that's lovely of you, I'd love to win!

As a brit it would be nice if you could mention the rest of Britain as well as England with your 2nd graders. Us Welsh and Scottish often get forgotten even though along with northern Ireland we're all part of the UK. :)

Ooh, what a fab prize, thanks for the chance to win. I might even forgive you for having 'Christmas in England' rather than 'in the UK', you know, as they're not one and the same, and there's a good 10 million of us kicking around in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland that do crackers too ;o)

I think "all is calm" comes AFTER Christmas, actually. Unfortunately.
Like, sometime in January when we're stranded inside because of a snowstorm. :) Good luck with all the craziness!

I'm a recent follower and would love a chance to win one of your prizes. The I Spy charm pack really caught my eye because of the owls, which was my school mascot all those many years ago.

A.J. Dub. said...

I think the "all is calm" comes late Christmas morning when you are surrounded by gift wrap, candy wrappers, orange peels and content kiddos playing with new toys.

Thanks for the sweet giveaway!

Kelly said...

I kind of wish I didn't link up to SMS myself! I get some of the strangest comments! The ones that make me mad are when they say they don't use what I'm giving away (I'm giving away charm packs). What the heck?!?!? Then why are you entering? Just because it's free? Rude! Anywho! I love what you're giving away, especially that tape!!!

Harrysmum said...

Thanks for a great giveaway!
We're in end of term meltdown too - combined with my grandmother being taken ill and my Mum being more stressed out over her than usual! only 11 more days and it will all be over!

hennies.pennies said...

This is a very busy time of year but it can be so filled with the joy of giving if we keep Christmas in our hearts!! I'm so looking forward to this Christmas because our daughter and grandchildren will be visiting from Maine! Thank you for an opportunity to win! Good luck to all. Be blessed!!
