Give-Away

I am participating in the Sew, Mama, Sew Give-Away Day 2008, which is today! I think you can see the full list of participants here. I would LOVE to give away something I've made myself, but I couldn't get it together in time for today, so instead I will be giving away this Mill Hill Snow Charmer Kit. This kit is unopened, and has all the materials you need to make the pictured cross-stitch ornament: Mill Hill glass beads, a charm, perforated paper, floss, needles, and a chart with instructions. I don't know the exact dimensions of the finished ornament, but I think it will be about 3 inches tall. I have made ornaments using Mill Hill bead kits before, and they're very easy to understand. This would be a nice gift to make for someone, or you could give the kit itself as a gift to someone who enjoys needlework.

To enter your name for the give-away, please leave a comment by midnight (eastern time) Saturday night. You can tell me your favorite holiday tradition, what kind of crafts you like to do, or you can just say hi. I will choose a winner, either by putting all the names in a hat, or by using a random number generator, and I will announce the winner Sunday morning. I will be happy to send this internationally (which would be anywhere outside of the U.S.!), so don't be shy!

I do hope to have a give-away sometime soon with something made by me, so please stay tuned.

My newest and most fun Christmas tradition is an advent calander I made for my fiance a few years ago. I filled it with lovely things for him. Then last year it was his turn to fill it for me. This year we're now engaged and living together so we're splitting it. I've filled the odds, he's the evens. It makes mornings so much fun :)

Hi there!

A holiday tradition we started this year and I'll continue to use is the "Elf on the Shelf." You can google it for a really good explanation, but the bottom line is that it brings on some exemplary behavior from children before Christmas.

Have a great day!
