Christmas Spirit GIVEAWAY !

Yesterday I baked some Christmas cookies and I popped some popcorn for stringing the Christmas tree garland and I put on some of my favorite Christmas music.  All of this was done as an attempt to get myself into that Christmas spirit.  It didn’t really work.  I need to do something to get into the holiday spirit.

I KNOW!

I’ll have a giveaway!

Here’s the little something that I’m going to giveaway …

100_3157EBAY

This is a little “Jingle Bell Candy Cane “ Pillow.  It’s a cute little       4 1/2” square size so it will fit very nicely in with your bowl fillers or just on the mantle shelf.  I’ve stuffed it with wool clippings which gives it some weight. 

Incidentally, I have one of these listed on Ebay right now as well as patterns and a cute little snowman pincushion.  Go take a look. 

 

So the rules for this giveaway are pretty simple:

This giveaway is just for my blog “followers”.   Add yourself to my followers list if you wish a chance for this.  The last giveaway I had lots of entries from lots of strangers who were just passing through.  I don’t want passing through … I want regular readers to win this.

All of my “Followers”, just leave a comment in this post for your chance to win this Jingle Bell Candy Cane shelf pillow. 

I realize that there are lots of regular readers who don’t have blogs.  I’ll make an exception for you.  If you’re a regular reader without a blog,  leave an “anonymous” comment with your name and then email me so that I have a way to get in touch with you if you are the winner.  (cathspennies@gmail.com

The winning name will be drawn on Wednesday night (Dec 16th) at 10pm est. The winner will be notified that night and then announced here on Thursday morning. 

For those without a blog … Do you know that you can sign up for a blog and just use it to keep track of your favorite blogs to read?  You don’t have to actually make blog entries … Just sign up and then add all of your bookmarked blogs to your list and it’s a simple way to keep track of all your favorite sites.  The main “dashboard” page will show all of your favorites and their newest updates. It’s really easy to do … if I can do it, anyone can.

Happy Day everyone!

Good Morning Cath...
Oh sweetie, how recious is this pillow full of candy cane love.

What an amazing job you do. I love your handiwork. It is just beautiful, and think of all the many places you can tuck such a precious gift of love.

Earlier in the week, I wrote a piece on candy canes, if you missed it, go back a few in my posts and read it, it was quite interesting.

I am a follower, and so proud to be. You have such a wonderful creative side, and it helps me to create too. Please enter me into your drawing.

Country hugs, Sherry

Quilt Hollow said...

Oh how pretty and your giving it away?!! It's a keeper! I can keep it for you. Hee! I'm a follower already. I like your last paragraph about blogging. So many lurkers and anonymous post and folks don't realize we can't contact them if they do win.
Enjoy your weekend!

I would be thrilled to win your shelf pillow as I am sure any of us will be. Thank you for being so generous as to give one away. Being an avid follower of your patterns, I would like to request you make one up for White on White Christmas Tree. I would sure purchase it from you. I didn't get to eBay in time to see it listed.

I added you to my google reader last week while searching for penny mats. I thought I would be listed as a follower. When I checked this morning, sure enough I wasn't there. Well I am now!

Would love to enter your drawing for the adorable pillow. Thank you.

DianeH said...

Hi Cathy, I found you through Paulette and am pleased to now be a follower. Your designs and patterns are a delight. It would be wonderful to win one of your creations. Looking forward to getting to know you better.

That little pillow is just adorable!!! I didn't check your blog yesterday, so I just went to ebay to see if I could find your listing, but alas I was too late. I'll bet it sold immediately after you listed it. Oh...to have just a fraction of your talent. I'm going to have to figure out how to be a follower. Merry Christmas!

I've just went to GW last week, gotten wool skirts and jackets, ready to get busy after the holidays. I just love your pillow, and look forward to more patterns soon. Also for us new followers, do you have a list of all your patterns? Have a wonderful day.
Blessings,
