Simple Sunday & Christmas Cheer Giveaway!



It isn't what they say about you, it's what they whisper.

This is the first week in my Holiday Giveaway. Each week will feature a different prize package for a lucky reader. All you have to do is leave a comment on THIS post. If you do not have a blog, no problem, leave a comment and include your email address in this format:
sophie {at} yahoo {dot} com
I will need a way to easily contact the winner. If you do not know how to leave a comment, click HERE for easy instructions. Don't miss out, leave a comment.

If you have added my giveaway button to your blog sidebar, and/or if you blog about my giveaway, please leave an additional comment on this post to let me know you have done so. This will get you additional entries to all contest during the duration of the giveaway event.

A random drawing will be Saturday Morning and the lucky winner will be announced. International friends are most welcome. A new contest will start each Sunday and will run for a week.

I started my blog in July and I have really enjoyed getting to know so many new people. Some of you visit everyday, leave comments and some just visit. You all have given me so much joy over the past few months, that I wanted to give a little back to you. You can keep the prize packages for yourself, or share them with others. I find so much pleasure in giving, and what better time than the holidays to do so.


Week #1 Giveaway :

You will receive a cute little Snowman candle holder, a package of flavored coffees, two cute little "Envelope for Santa" ornaments. The backs of these open up, for slipping a actual letter to Santa, hang it on the tree for Santa to see. I thought this would be so cute to start a tradition with a young child for when they write a letter to Santa. You will also receive a cute little book that gives you ideas on saying I love you to loved ones.

Also included is a holiday pack of post-it notes, two snowflake mugs and hot chocolate, One adorable Penguin bag filled with bath products, Perfect for relaxing after a long day Christmas shopping.

You will receive a Holiday Inspired Afghan made by myself. This measures 74 inches x 72 inches and is perfect for snuggling in front of the fire and watching TV with family. Included is a cute reindeer pillow for relaxing with your Christmas Afghan. And to add to your Christmas decor, this cute snowman sign will do the trick.

I hope this first prize package gets you thinking about the holidays and will jump start you into the holiday spirit. I really enjoyed putting this package together for my giveaway. Be sure to check back each Sunday between now and Christmas for a different prize package.

~Happy Holidays from Coloradolady!

  5. OH my. What a very lovely gift package. Of course I ove the quilt. I am again, amazed by the time and thought you have put into this.

    I love Christmas. But I can't concentrate on it till AFTER Thanksgiving. :) We are making handmade gifts this year for the grandparents and others. I'm excited. Usually we make a few, but this year we are doing them ALL.

    There are lots of neat projects around the blogosphere. But I wish I knew how to crochet or knit. How cool would THAT be? (see, you know, so you can answer that quetsion!!)

    Thanks again,
