It's Giveaway Day again!

Giveaway Day!

This is Flakey the rag-snowflake. He's an unique little snowflake at about 22 cm tall.
Flakey made out of soft snowy white flannel and his nose is appliqued stripy blue cotton. He has little button eyes and he's wearing snuggly cotton gingham pyjamas with mother-of-pearl buttons on the back.
Flakey is filled with rags and wool.

PJ buttons

Since going to bed early makes Santa come quicker, Flakey has donned his PJs and is going to sleep now in order to make the presents come faster!

Snowy sleep

To celebrate the spirit of Christmas and the joy of giving I'm taking part in Giveaway Day, and thus I'm giving Flakey the rag-snowflake away to one lucky person who leaves a comment on what they enjoy most about Christmas here on this entry between today and the 6th of December (that's our Independence Day here in Finland!). 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 on the 6th, I'll randomly draw a number to see who Flakey will be going home to (I'm happy to ship internationally, so it doesn't matter where you live).

Check out the whole long, long, long list of other wonderful crafters participating in Giveaway Day, too, they're all listed at the Sew Mama Sew-blog!

The best thing about Christmas for me is the decorations, I put up my Christmas lights up yesterday while listening to Christmas songs and I'm really looking forward to getting a real Christmas tree to decorate again. I buy a few new Christmas tree decorations every year, with most of them being bird-related in some way.
I do like Christmas music a lot too, and I tend to listen to it pretty much every day come December. Oh, and Christmas food! I love Christmas food! Joulutortut (Christmas tarts) and glögi (mulled wine) and porkkanalaatikko (carrot casserole) are at the top of my list of things I want to eat at Christmas. :)

Added on the 6th of December:
Commenting is closed now, and a winner has been picked. Thank you so much to everyone who commented, you've made this a super giveaway!


My favorite thing about Christmas is also the decorations! I love driving around and looking at all of the lights and trees in windows.

I LOVE Christmas carols! You can often find them on my ipod well into February (until my husband gets mad that they keep coming up on the shuffle play feature and makes me take them off!)

I love you little snowflake! Such a cute little thing! What I like best about Christmas is seeing the looks on my kids faces. They are really young (2 & 3) and they are full of awe and excitement over the decorations and the presents. (Who doesn't like getting a new toy?) Thanks for doing a giveaway! sales4mp@gmail.com

Awesome! You are talented...I love it :)

Is it wrong that one of my favorite things about xmas is just the time I get off school and work? Granted, I love the time because it allows me to do all the other stuff, like visit with family, bake, craft, etc. Just spending time with and sharing with family is my favorite.

Oh My is Flake a cutie!
My favorite thing about Christmas is wearing pajamas for the whole day! It makes unwrapping packages sooooo much easier for some reason!

He's so adorable! Such lovely pyjamas too :) I sure Father Christmas wouldn't mind giving him a ride over here to New Zealand on his sleigh if I should get so lucky :) I love Christmas too, it makes me feel a bit like a child again, with all the familiar traditions and the focus on family. It's even better now I have a child of my own!

I like this give away stuff, its fun, and your little guys are such cuties, thank you for the chance to have one stay.

My favourite thing about Christmas is: when the tree has just been trimmed and it's still looking lovely, I like to lie underneth it and look up through the branches at the lights. Does that sound weird? Probably, but I don't care :P

Happy Independence Day to you!:) My favourite thing about Christmas is definitely eating roasted chestnuts...can't wait!

I enjoy remembering Jesus' birth and spending time with family.


I like giving things, especially things I have made

My favorite thing about Christmas is the decorating, and the excuse to bake things I wouldn't normally! Flaky is very cute!

The best thing about Christmas this year is having my husband home for 2 whole weeks between school semesters! We're going to be enjoying lots of relaxing family time! Thanks for the great giveaway!

Cute cute cute! This guy is adorable. I think he wants to visit my home in America. I am guessing once he comes he will love it so much he won't want to leave. Merry Christmas!

What a cutie! I love cooking for Christmas and being with my family.

I like the music and the decorated tree with all the wrapped presents around it. :)

What I love most is the excuse to make something for my friends and family. It can get a bit overwhelming crafting and crafting and sewing and crafting, but it's totally worth it! Sweet snowflake!

Wow. Flakey's awesome!

I really like all the getting ready for Christmas. I love figuring out gifts for everyone, baking hundreds of cookies, wrapping all the gifts, listening to Christmas carols. There's just such a great sense of anticipation to all of it.

Happy (early) Independence Day!

He is lovely - he makes my eyes feel great. Thanks for the giveaway.

I love getting together with family. We are quite spread out but always make an effort at Christmas.

yay! your creation is awesome.

christmas is great for all the egg nog, baked goods, and time with people you love and adore.

i enjoy that we all seem to stop and savor the season, that we live in the moment snd enjoy the present for once. :) loving your snowflake!

What do I like best? Decorating the tree! It was always one of my favorite parts when I was a kid. I remember my dad lifting me up to reach the high spots and my sister and I getting decorated in tinsel before we put it on the tree. I'm sure all those sweet memories is part of why I love it so much now too.

What fun snowflakes. Oh your girls ones are so sweet!

My favorite thing about Christmas is getting a break from school to spend time with my family and friends. This rag-snowflake is just so adorable, by the way.

he's so cute! what I enjoy most is having my oldest home from college! can't wait

My favorite thing about Christmas is the decorations (and the cookies!!!)... they make the whole house festive.

Your little snowflake is so cute!

There is nothing about Christmas that I don't like!

My daughter would so try to take that from me!!!

I love to see the smiles on children's faces! Gets me every time.

This little guy is so unbelieveably cute! I fell in love with him at first site and if I won him, would just keep him for myself, to love and admire!

My favorite part of the holidays is just being with my family and being able to give! I love to make things and give gifts to my family and friends.

What an adorable little critter! I love sitting in front of the tree with my family with the yule log program on TV and waiting for the dog to walk across the screen. We drink eggnog and spend a lazy, lovely evening being together.

So cuuute squeeel!
Perfect snowflake to do my snowdance with!
My favorite part of Christmas is everything.
Baking gingerbreads, foods, decorating the tree, light, the songs and being with my family.
And of course the presents.

this is the cutest thing ever!!! you have the hands of a fairy, you really do!!!

my favourite thing about Xmas is the street lights. every year they are different and i like to go for a walk downtown (I live in Lisbon) with my husband, we always take pictures, it's our thing.

The best part about Christmas was helping my brother pick out a surprise Christmas tree for his girlfriend. Then, while he was cooking dinner for us, me and my little sister decorated the tree with green and gold bulbs and fairylights. We don't usually get along very well, my siblings and me, but we all love my brothers girlfriend very much. And when she got home from work, she was so happy to see how much time and thought we put into this surprise. Then, after dinner and washing up, we all lay under the Christmas tree to watch the lights.

This was last year, this year will be even better because my brother and his girlfriend have a baby now. It'll be a chore to squeeze all five of us under the tree to watch the lights, but I think we'll manage. This'll be the first Christmas for Jade. I'm looking forward to it.

Lovely! Thanks for the opportunity. I love reading the Christmas story with my kids.

So cute! I hope my number is picked! I live in Newfoundland, Canada

how very very very unbeliveble cute!!
my favorite part of Christmas is spending time with my family.

I Love this little guy... He's adorable

This? Is awesome. My favourite part of Christmas is going to the zoo to see the Christmas lights. We do it every year!

My favorite thing about Christmas is hunting down just the right gift for all the people on my list. This year its a little different because I am making homemade gifts for everyone. But that too has been a lot of fun. Trying to figure out the perfect gift to make for each person.

Oh, I love the food. The cookies and the yummy smells they produce while being baked. Most of all the warm kitchen they create for everyone to gather and enjoy.

what an adorable little guy!

What I love the most about Christmas is the giving spirit.
