Thinking about Thanks & A Giveaway

Is it just me or do merchandisers everywhere want us to jump from Halloween straight into Christmas?  Don’t get me wrong, I *LOVE* Christmas, but if we listen to them, what a missed opportunity to encourage ourselves and our families to be thankful; I don’t want that to be me.

We are thankful for much in our family – God has blessed us tremendously!  We have two beautiful children, a fabulous church, an extended family who blesses us on a weekly basis and we’re living a dream life…building our business, chasing our dreams and enjoying {most} every minute of it!


We’ve been planning and preparing for our upcoming holiday season – as of now, we have 3 shows on our docket & we’re really excited about it!  We’ve added chore charts & fabric magnet boards {with monograms} & have a few more items up our sleeves as well.

In honor of our many blessings, we wanted to share some of that with one of you.  We’re giving away a family name sign just in time for you to gift for Christmas or keep for yourself to enhance your decor.

One more thing I’m really thankful for is the Nester – she has been a huge blessing to our business.   She welcomed us to a Giveaway Day when our Etsy shop had around 20 sales & was barely starting out…she’s encouraged us along the way and helped us promote & grow our business.  She got the ball rolling on this & many other giveaways scattered around the blogosphere this week…fabulous…hop on over to Nesting Place and say hi and you’ll find lots more opportunities to win great loot!

The fine print:  Contest open to US residents.  All other nationalities are welcome to enter if you’re willing to help cover additional shipping costs to your location.  The giveaway will run through midnight, Thursday, November 18th.  The winner will be announced on Saturday, November 20th.
