It's Giveaway Day! Hooray!
'Tis the season of holly and being jolly and of other things ending in -olly, and of course, it's also time for Giveaway Day! This year marks my 5th time taking part in what has become a weeklong event of generosity, holiday spirit and lots and lots of wonderful crafts and crafty goodies. And I'm just as delighted to be taking part this year as I've been all the previous years! :)
This is Cinnamon the rag-gingerbear.
I am giving her away to one lucky commenter who leaves a comment here, between now and the 7th of December, telling me about what you think is the very best thing about the holiday season. Every commenter will be assigned a number, with the first person to comment being number 1 and the second commenter would be number 2 and so forth, and then come the 7th, I'll draw a random number to see who's the lucky person that Cinnamon goes home to (I'm happy to ship internationally, so it doesn't matter where you're from).
Cinnamon loves everything about the holiday season! She decks the halls full of sparkly Christmas decorations, cooks and bakes a whole lot of holiday treats and sends towering piles of Christmas greetings every year.
Cinnamon is made out of soft gingerbread-brown wool and she's stuffed with rags and polyfill and she has tiny little white buttons for eyes, an embroidered nose and gently blushing cheeks. She has a jolly red button, a wooden button and an icing white button on her front and her ear-bow is made out of an old cotton pillowcase.
Cinnamon is about 32 cm tall, but her diminutive size doesn't limit her enthusiasm for all things Christmas-y! :)
As for my favourite thing about Christmas, well, it's actually two, because I just can't decide between all the pretty, sparkly decorations and lights and all the delicious food and treats! That's why there's more photos of Cinnamon in my Flickr, because I had the hardest time making up my mind which ones -these ones with the shiny baubles or ones with all sorts of yummy Christmas treats- to use. :)
Be sure to have a look at all the other blogs taking part in Giveaway Day too. There's oodles of handmade goods and craft supplies being given away by oodles of wonderful crafters, and you can find a list of all of it here: http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/category/contests/
Added on the 7th of December: The giveaway is now closed, and so are the comments on this post. I'll announce the winner in just a bit! :)
