My "Christmas To Come" Giveaway 2018 ...


Hello my dear friends,

it is that time again!

Time to put your name into the basket for this year's ...


... "Christmas To Come" giveaway!

Can you believe it?! ... This is my 5th year now that I have been doing this. I started it in 2014 and I am still loving it as much as I did it the first year. For those who have never heard of my "Christmas To Come" giveaway or taken part in it, this is what it is all about!

 Sometime in February, I share a post about my "Christmas To Come" Giveaway like this one and that is it really. All you have to do to take part is two things ... please follow me and once you do, just leave a comment on this post and on this post only! Then you have to wait a while.

Sometime in July I pick a winner for my giveaway. I notify the lucky person that their name has been picked and then ... nothing! ... Nothing until early December. That is when I mail my gift to the winner, just in time for it to be placed under their Christmas tree. What that gift will be, is kept a secret until after Christmas Day or if the winner decides to open it before that, maybe earlier. When it comes to what the gift will be, at times I don't even know until November what I am going to choose and this way it will stay a Christmas surprise for the winner.

Why do I do this?! ... Because I love putting a smile on someones face and in their heart. But there is another reason too. I remember all the excitement on Christmas Day when I was a young child. I would take a gift from under the Christmas tree and I would have no idea what I was going to find under all the pretty wrapping paper, ribbons and bows. It was just such a neat feeling and that is what I am wanting to give to the winner, that feeling of being a child once again on Christmas morning.

And now it's your turn, click that follow button if you are not already following me and then just leave a comment below!

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.

  7. I'm so grateful to have found you. I searched for, "how to make a lace tassel," in goggle and you were one of the top five on the list. I fell in love with your work since then - I think it was in 2014 or 2015.
    Thank you for doing another of these cool Xmas giveaways. Their so fun to see the end results. Hugs <3

  15. I can feel the anticipation just looking at the beautifully wrapped gift from you. I would put it under the tree and every time I walked past, I would pick it up, give it a little shake and try to guess that beauty you've enclosed. Therefore, YES - please put my name in the hat because I would love to have something made from your hands and heart.

    Merry - already!
