"A Few of my Favorite Things" Giveaway!!!


“Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things
…”


Once upon a time I promised to give away a few of my favorite  things
and THESE are few of MY favorite things!


To celebrate & to say “thank you” to all who’ve supported me throughout my kitchen, & Mommy, & now blogging, adventures, I’m giving away a bunch of stuff I love:


The movie “Elf” because nothing gets me through a long night of decorating like Christmas movies and this is one of my faves!


A super cute magnetic notepad with tree-shaped sticky notes and a festive little pen. J Because we must always have something to jot our thoughts onto.


Sprinkles & super cute cupcake liners w/matching picks. Because sprinkles are a food group, it’s true, look it up. I’ll wait…. See?!! Told ya!


Adorable tags. I have a slight addiction to Christmas tags. Doesn’t matter how many I already have, every year I HAVE to buy more. So I’m sharing my addiction with you, aren’t you lucky!


Cutesy Christmas napkins!  Because they're napkins. What’s not to love?


A set of 4 Handmade Christmas Crafting books! Because I LOVE CRAFTS!
I probably own just about every available craft book in the land.
The 1st one is “Handmade Christmas Crafts”, tons of great ideas!


The 2nd book is “Handmade Christmas Ornaments”. You can see just on the cover several terrific crafts!


The 3rd book is “Stocking Stuffer” crafts. So many, many cute things!


And the 4th book is “Snowman Crafts”. An entire book dedicated to the man made out of snow! (and women, too. And snowkids? Sure!)


I also have for you 2 sets of Christmas cookie cutters. Because it wouldn’t be Christmas without roll-out cookies. Well, at least not in my house it wouldn’t. There are 6 cutters all together, and just in time for you to get busy!


Finally I have also a Gingerbread Boy-shaped cake pan. Because there are so many ways to decorate a Gingerbread person, why try to fit it all onto little cookies when you can go all out on a whole cake! (um, forgot to take a pic of the pan by itself, but it’s in the photo with everything else – oopsy!)


So, there you have it! So many of my personal favorite things, and all you have to do is just a simple thing (or two, or three…).

  • Thing 1: Leave a comment here, on my blog, telling me your favorite thing about Christmas.
  •  
  • Thing 2: Share this Giveaway on your page, then come back here and leave a comment letting me know you did. (and thank you, in advance)
  •  
  • Thing 3: Follow my blog, leave a comment to let me know if you did that, too J
  •  
  • Thing 4: “Like” my page on Facebook, then leave a comment, here, letting me know you did. If you already do, please leave a comment telling me you already do.


You only need to do one thing (the comment about your favorite thing) but each additional thing will give you extra chances (plus they’re all nice things to do, and you want to be nice, right?)

Now for the formalities:
~This giveaway is entirely because I feel like sharing. I am not, in any way, being compensated from any of the companies or brands included in the giveaway.
~Giveaway is limited to the continental United States due to postal restrictions and other matters that I have no control over – and I DO like to have control of my favorite things.

~So go, now! Be festive! Share! And rejoice~
Oh, and do it before midnight on December 1st to be eligible to win!

Thank you!!!

  7. My favorite thing about Christmas is people being super nice around this time. I love when people get in the spirit and do what they can to make others happy. In this day 'n age, the months of November/December are desperately needed - a break from the destruction and political troubles we're having. MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!! <3

  16. My favorite thing about Christmas is ... Well, for me, there's nothing like the sites and smells of Christmas... the tree, dinner, gingerbread cookies, the reflection of Christmas lights every where you look and sharing good times with family and friends.

  29. my fave Christmas thing is the tree, I love the smell, cutting it down, decorating it while sipping mulled wine and watching Christmas movies or listening to carols, and sitting by it with the only thing lit up are the tree's lights.

  31. Hi Michelle,
    I have been following your blog since your first entry and love your amazing work.

    My favorite thing about Christmas is making tradional Italian desserts such as cannoli and pizzelle cookies. The recipes I use have been in my family for generations. And of course, I enjoy sharing them with family and friends.

  33. Awesome blog! We love a lot of the same things! (ELF is priceless! :))

    My favorite part about Christmas--besides the glorious food--are the trees. I love looking at Christmas trees. I love the lights--white lights if you want to be tasteful, colored lights if you want to be festive (I tend to be more festive than tasteful). I love the ornaments people choose to hang--every tree is different; and it's just the magical part of the holiday for me. You can't have Christmas without a tree and tinsel.

    I also love the smell of snow and cedar at this time of year; and how funny kids are this time of year. Such goofballs. And of course, I love spending time with my family at Christmas.

  40. I think its a toss up between the night before Christmas when my husband and I get all Santa like and finish wrapping the presents & eating the cookies and even leaving reindeer tracks in the snow for the morning...or seeing the excitement on my kids faces (mostly my 5 yr. old as the 2 yr. doesn't care quite so much)on Christmas morning. This year should be a banner year as I got her tickets to go see her beloved Fresh Beat Band in concert....she.is.going.to.freak.out.
