Stocking Filler Give-Away!!!

Alright....I have been thinking and thinking of what fun thing to do because I am quickly approaching my 100 post!!! Now this is a huge deal because with all of my good intentions...I have been one of "those" women that open a journal on January 1 and write my plans and dreams for the year....then around January 5th --I am no where to be found!!!! LOL So staying with this blog thing...and being more consistant about posting...well frankly, it is HUGE!!! smile

Like some of you...I have been entering and checking out some of the great blog give-aways that have been going on lately. So I know the things that I like and what I don't. I want this to be something simple for you to enter....have ways for you to do extra entries if you want to....and a way to expand visitors to my site and to my shop site, Pieces From A Creative Heart.

What can you win??? My best friend has been cruising all of these online give-aways...and she was sharing how many things she enter for were not for herself, but would make great gifts or stocking stuffers. From that I got the idea to do a Stocking Stuffer Give-Away....this way you could keep everything, or divide it up for small gifts or stocking items.

Here is the prize!!

The package contains:
From Legacy Publishing: An Americana recipe box with dividers and recipe cards and a wonderful prayer journal (this is one of my favorites because it has questions for you each day)
From Swan Creek Candles: A Soybean Wax candle (12 ounces) in Crisp Cotton
From Southern Lights: A package of Vanilla Nut Fudge soy melts (this is my favorite company for melts...I keep some of these in my studio to burn every day as they just make me smile!!)
From Me: Two packages of "tag its"..these are simple tags to use on gifts, to make notes on to put in packages or lunch bags or to use as bookmarks (and many other ways).
A black and cream toile lavendar rice bag...just the thing to use on the cold nights to heat the foot of your bed or place on your neck/back.
And last..a fun book by Dolley Carlson, Gifts From The Heart. This book has lots of great ideas for things you can do for others and recipes!!!

This has been such a fun package to put together....so here is how you win.

1. You get one entry for leaving a comment on this post.

2. You get 5 entries for posting the stocking block above on your blog, linking to this blog and blogging about it.

3. You get 5 entries each for becoming a follower of this blog and for the Pieces From A Creative Heart Blog.

4. You get 3 entries for commenting on the Pieces From A Creative Heart Blog on the item that you like.

Please put in your comment on this post which of these items above that you are doing. (if you are already are a follower you get the entries!!!)
(sorry, but this contest will be limited to those living within the US and Canada.....)

Thank you for visiting this blog.....thank you if you are a regular reader......and thank you for playing along with this giveaway!!!!

So get out there and enter, tell 1000 of your closest friends!!!! The random drawing will take place on December 1st at 10 am!!!

Have a great day!!
Hugs,
Debbie

  2. Hello Debbie,

    I just seen you update your blog! I FINALLY put the little LIVE FEED update thing in and LOVE it! I just didn't have the time to check everyone's blog all the time...so this works perfect!

    How very generous of you. Such a wonderful giveaway...PLEASE sign me up! I already posted it on my blog sidebar...and it will still there, until you draw the lucky winners name.

    I must say, that either the candle or the crow tags are my favorite.

    Have yourself a great day$
    Blessings,
    ~Tonya
