**THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED**

 

 

**** Remember that we are opening this up to anyone and everyone…so if you live in the jungles of Africa, or up at the North Pole with Santa Claus, you can enter, too ;)****

 Are you excited?!  We are!  We love doing giveaways and can’t wait to see who wins each of these four prizes 😀

 

First we have two coordinating fabric covered notebooks perfect for keeping lists or to use as a mini journal for writing down Christmas memories!

Each journal measures 4-1/2″ X 3-1/4″ and has 120 pages (60 sheets).

 

 

 Next we are giving away five pretty Christmas cards stitched by Anna.  Nothing says simple Christmas charm like these pretty notecards!

 

 

 Then we have this yummy vanilla sugar scrub made by Mommy…but don’t eat it no matter how good it smells!  Comes in a pretty old-fashioned jar.

 

A set of three crocheted doily snowflake ornaments made by Susannah is the last of our giveaway prizes.   They have been lightly starched to help them hold their shape while hanging on your Christmas tree.

    Every year we have midnight mass at church. First we have a little “party”…playing games, listening to christmas music, dance, give presents to each other…and then around 10:30 pm church starts and it ends just at midnight! It’s probably my favorite night of the year. 🙂 My favorite item is the journal.

    My favorite Christmas memory is when we cut our own tree down. Brought it home, and put it up. Then a swam of baby praying mantis came out of it. We were all running around and vacuuming them up! We ended up using a fake tree that year… lol 🙂

    Okay! Here is my mandatory entry 😉

    One of my favorite Christmas traditions is we always go to the Annual Walk-In Handel’s Messiah! Anyone can sing in it (I might next year) and it’s only an hour long, just long enough to enjoy it and not get tired of it! we are going this Sunday! 😀

    One of my favorite Christmas traditions are getting to visit family in Arizona! It’s the only time of the year we get to see them, and I always really look forward to it.

    My favorite item in your giveaway is the little notebooks. I love the colors!

    This looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun!

    I am most excited about the vanilla sugar scrub you are giving away, but I think they are all lovely 🙂 One of my favorite Christmas memories is a Christmas pagent type thing our church puts on the first Saturday of December – its based off the Swedish tradition of St. Lucia and morning filled with 4 breakfasts we serve to the community, beautiful music and scripture, and lots of fellowship!

    Oh, you put me in a pickle. I love winter, and there’s something about Christmas that can’t be beat for atmosphere (If only we could take the Christianity out, I’d be happy–oh, the gasps I’m hearing. Don’t worry, I believe in Christ. I just take issue with celebrating a holiday not commanded in Scripture). Anyway, My favorite tradition that we enjoy is having cinnamon rolls on Christmas morning for breakfast. This year I shan’t have any, since I’m sugar free. 🙁 Poor little me. Then again…..I’m saving myself from poison they call sugar, so never mind!

    My favourite Christmas tradition is going to see the Christmas lights! There are some streets here where the entire (usually long) street is blocked off and every house lights up their homes for Christmas. Thousands of families come to walk along with Christmas music provided by charity bands and families along the way and other wonderful Christmas treats. I look forward to it all year. 🙂

          Oh dear! Does your basement have living space? We had a couple of neighbors who do have living space in their basements and they were having to hand-bail water out of their basements when we had no power 😛 No fun!

          Yes! ‘Tis true about the peaches 😀 We had quite a few come unsealed again…bleh!

    My favourite family tradtion is preparng the vegetables together on Christmas eve and listening to Carols from Kings on the radio, that is Kings College Cambridge here in the UK. Also I have loved the fact that the presents have never been the focus of the day, so we open them late on Christmas day with the fire lit and it is cosy.

    My favourite item in the giveaway are the journals because they look so inviting to write in and my favourite etsy items are the aprons because they look so nice and I want one!

    I am a farmgirl at heart as well (love the pictures of your animals especially goats)..I was born in Indiana, but live in TN now. I love Indiana and miss it terribly. I am a homeschooling mom to three boys. My favorite memory at Christmas always involved the hunting for that perfect tree! Then realizing when you get it home that it was much bigger than you first thought and have to go to work giving it a ‘haircut’ to make it fit. My favorite item is the snowflake ornaments. I love things that are handmade and I like you pick up ornaments from my travels. Have a blessed holiday!

      LOL! We have needed to give several of our Christmas trees ‘haircuts’ as well 😀 That sounds so familiar! We still have a slight dirt streak on our ceiling where one of our trees actually scraped it.

        I went over to visit your esty site and fell in love with the red cardinal apron. My grandmother lived with us when I was growing up due to her health and the one thing that she loved was watching birds, especially red cardinals. Those were her favorite! During the holidays, one always seems to remember those that aren’t with you anymore and seeing that apron made me smile..it reminded me of something she would have worn. I have her love for aprons as well…..

        Here you go! 🙂
        White chocolate cranberry oatmeal cookies

        •2/3 cup butter, softened
        •2/3 cup packed brown sugar
        •2 eggs
        •2 t. vanilla
        •1 ½ cups rolled oats
        •1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
        •½ t salt
        •1 teaspoon baking soda
        •1 1/4 cups dried cranberries (Craisins or equivalent)
        •2/3 cup white chocolate chips
        •½ cup chopped walnuts

        Preheat oven to 375°

        In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar until
        light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time and the vanilla. Combine
        oats, flour, salt, and baking soda; stir into butter mixture one cup at a
        time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in dried cranberries and

    I think that my favorite Christmas tradition is of my mother making fudge. She makes the best fudge ever! Or atleast I think so. I get to help her sometimes and I really like that. I like helping make all of the deserts for our Christmas dinner. My favorite thing that you are giving away are probably the snowflake ornaments!
