~~~Gingerbread Giveaway!!!~~~

Hey guys!! I hope you all had a wonderful thanksgiving! Yes, I ate way to much! lol...Now I need to diet! We have had a fun weekend! My aunt, uncle and cousin came in from Kentucky. We have spent the last two days shopping and eating! No, I did not get up at 5:00 and hit all of the sales. I just can't get up that early! I ended up buying clothes for myself. ( no gifts =O lol...) I'll do my Christmas shopping later.

Now for the giveaway! I am giving away a handmade glittered gingerbread tassel, a cute metal glittered gingerbread man on a stand, aromatique peppermint spray and candle, and two ADORABLE gingerbread girl and boy ornaments. I just love them! All you have to do to enter the giveaway is leave me a comment. If you post about my giveaway on your blog let me know and you will be entered twice! Also, if you don't have a blog, please leave me your e-mail address so I will be able to contact you if you are the winner. If you are not a follower I would love for you to be one!! The drawing will be this Friday! Thank you all for reading my blog over the last few years!!! I appreciate each one of you!


I have to finish up decorating two houses tomorrow and today I am starting on m own! I will be doing several posts this week, so be sure and check back often. I am really running behind this year and it's driving me crazy! lol...I'll catch up though I'm sure. I will be posting new Etsy store items throughout the day today. Alot of you have been asking about frames...they are on the way! Thank you again for sticking with me over the last few years! Have a great day!

Melissa Miller said...

Oh Kristen how cute! I just love everything you have chosen to giveaway. Precious! Thank you for the chance to win. I am about to post something new and I will mention your giveaway for a second chance. I am a happily a loyal friend and follower.

Happy Sunday and future gift shopping! Can you believe I finished already? I can't.

I forgot! I would like to add the *Joy to the World* tassel to my two frames I am buying. Can you make the tassel frame and the red cross frame both *M*'s. I know I have several already but I just love em'. Let me know when you can mail them. If you want to show me first with photos email when you can. I'm wondering what color frame for the tassled one and ribbon colors too. Hmmmmm?

Melissa Miller said...

Come to think of it will the frames look to large for *M*'s int he center? Let me know what you think. I want them either way.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Oh my gosh ~ these are just too cute, Kristen! I don't get up for the Black Friday sales myself, but when I do my Christmas shopping I find I tend to do a "one for me, one for hubby; one for me, one for Mom; one for me . . ." ~ you get the picture I'm sure! : )
