It's GIVEAWAY time!!

I haven't given away any goodies since my Summertime Gardening Giveaway in June, so I figured the holidays would be the perfect time to show some love to my dear readers. When I post photos of my various crafting endeavors, I'm always paying attention to the comments you leave. One recent creation seemed to be pretty well-received.



Many of you had nice things to say about the pumpkin pie charms that I mentioned in this post, so I thought I'd give you a chance to have one of your very own. The best part is that not one, but TWO readers will end up with a piece of the pie! These charms are very versatile- you can use them as keychains, ornaments, or add a chain/ribbon/cord to make them into necklaces. The winners may even wish to give theirs as a gift to their Uncle Henry, who eats half a pie all to himself each year, in an effort to inform him that they know what he's up to.

How to enter:

♥ Leave a comment telling me what your absolute favorite holiday food is. I won't hold it against you if yours isn't pumpkin pie (even though it's definitely what I look forward to the most).
♥ Follow my blog. If you are already following, that counts too! Just leave a comment telling me that you follow.
♥ Tweet about this giveaway. Comment with a link to your twitter profile.
♥ Blog about this giveaway. Leave a link to the post in a comment.

Each of the above options counts as an entry, so please leave a separate comment for each one. Make sure to leave your email address or a link to your etsy account with each comment so that I can contact you if you win.

This giveaway is open to all countries- everyone is welcome to participate! The contest starts now and will end at midnight (U.S. central time) on Wednesday, December 16th. I will draw TWO winners with a random number generator and post the results on the 17th. Good luck, everybody!

my favorite holiday food is holly cookies. you use corn flakes and marshmallows, similar to when you make rice krispie treats. you also add some green food coloring, to make them look like holly leaves. then you drop them on cookie sheets in little clumps, and add a few cinnamon drops for the berries! they are so tasty and look SO cute and festive for christmas!!!

Pili said...

Hmmm, I don't have Pumpkin pie over here in Spain (but G have assured me he loves it, and he's just tried it this year) but of the sweets we have over here in Christmas, I love the Roscon de Reyes with cream!

Robin Hartman said...

I just love pumpkin pie but sweet potato is pretty good too. They looks similar too.

My all time favorite is gingerbread though because of the special meaning is has for my family. Christmas has always been a special time for baking.

JUST ME said...

I waaannnnttttt one.

My favorite holiday food is spiked eggnog. Because getting drunk on eggs, cream, and sugar is better than just about anything.

KnittyVet said...

Gingerbread cookies... with buttercream frosting... mmmm.... and I'm following you!

Princess Caitlin said...

pumpkin pie is the bomb.
HOWEVER, I think my very favorite is dressing. or stuffing, whatever you want to call it. We don't stuff our turkey with it, so... dressing it is.

my mom makes the BEST dressing ever. Ladle on the gravy, with a dab of cranberry sauce.... I could eat it all day!

Princess Caitlin said...

oh, AND I'm a loyal follower. ;-)

I love the desserts, pies, cakes, cookies, fudge...uh oh, I just gained 5 lbs!

Sarah Lynne said...

My favorite is gravy!!! I know its weird, but I put it on everything!!! I think the pie charm will be great for a wine glass charm. My Mother in law collects them.

Rachel said...

It's close tie between the turkey and the mashed potatoes.

Lara Suvada said...

here's a little song we sang in elementary school:

pumpkin pie, pumpkin pie, tasty as can be... that down-home country cookin - that's the kind for me!

But I think my favorite holiday food might be my famous homemade cranberry sauce. Mmmmm!!

Katie said...

My favorite dish is my homemade pecan pie!
