What wonderful, lovely, generous offerings.
Having made Cindy's delightful, Holiday Kit, I know the lucky winner will just love making her as well!!

Deb said...

Wonderful give away ~ Thankyou.
Lots of crafting happening here. My daughter purchased her first Condo this past summer, so I've been making Christmas tree ornaments etc for her new home ♥

Kristie said...

I have several projects for this Christmas. I have 6 great nieces and nephews, for each of them I bought one of those big wooden letters, the first letter of their name. I put their name on it and decorated it to match their personality and interests. I am also working on a chip board and acrylic "mini" album for my nephew of his 2 girls. I went a bit overboard and don't know how I will put it together, there aren't binder rings big enough for this book! Also am making several fleece blankets with the tied edges for family and friends.
I'm having quite a homemade Christmas this year. Wish I could have made all my gifts, but there just isn't enough time.

LindaSonia said...

I love making presents!

Dede Warren said...

wow, What great things y'all are giving away!!
I do indeed have that Christmas sprit, and am loving all the creating I've been able to do. 15 needle keeps for my art group exchange, 2 sock moneys, 3 Christmas stockings, 3 monogrammed tee shirts done! Now to finish a quilt by Christmas morning!! Wish me luck, I'm gonna need it!

Anonymous said...

Wow - what a fun opportunity ! That glittered key is the best. As for projects, anything with glitter is finding it's way on my table, including a 'rejoice' banner i made for Christmas and subsequently taught. The banner was an idea from the 'boo' banner made back in the fall with shipping tags. You can see a sample on my blog - the post was on november 11th. (jillsibbald.typepad.com)

Thanks for all of the great tutorials !

I seem to be up to my eyeballs in glitter and vintage song book pages these days. I've made flowers, chain garlands and banners. It is not uncommon for someone to look at me oddly and say, " You have glitter on your face" ...

This season I am crafting various decorations for my sweet home trying to recycle ornaments from Christmases past. I also prepared a series of little flower cabochon brooches. I will offer them to my girlfriends during my 'just girlfriends Christmas party' that I will be hosting this Saturday evening. I prepared little velvet pouches in green and blue for them and tied them with vintage gold or silver string and some jingle bells. Merry Christmas to all of us! Chryssoula
