I'm honored to make my first post (to my first blog!) to announce The Quilted Pumpkin's Mistletoe and Holly Shop Giveaway Winner.
My 8-year old son, Jack, pulled this month's shop giveaway winner (literally) from a hat before he went off to school. Congratulations to Robin of Washington! She won the Singing Snow Angel Ornament. Thank you to all the other ladies that entered the giveaway this month. You can visit Robin's blog at http://mountainmorningfarm.blogspot.com/ and read about her small sheep farm nestled in the foothills of Mt. Rainier, raising Romney/Romaldale/CVM sheep.
I'll be holding another Shop Giveaway in January/February offering a Valentine's Day trinket. I'm not sure yet what it'll be, but I'll make sure it's a cute one! Check my website later in January to find out.
If you're not familiar with shopping on Etsy you may want to stop by that site. I've picked up a few holiday gifts for my friends and family this past week. It's a site where everything is handmade, so each piece is wonderfully unique, not from a factory where everything has a cookie-cutter look. A lot of these Etsy sellers are having some good sales now as we're getting down the the last week or two before Christmas. Many are offering Free Shipping and Discounted Prices.
A Christmas gift is made a little more special when an individual receives a gift and knows it was specially handmade by you or another artisan, rather than from a large manufacturer. Why not visit a few of my favorite Etsy sellers for some holiday gift ideas ~
