Giveaway Day

Sew Mama Sew, my inspiration and one of the first blogs I followed, is hosting a Giveaway Day so I thought I'd join in on the fun.
I am offering a handmade glass pearl necklace. The pearls are a coppery/deep gold color and are strung with copper wire. There are a few blue disc beads throughout the strand. As I am posting this, it is not quite finished, but I will post a picture of the final product sometime tomorrow (Monday). Until then, here is a sneak peak of what it looks like so far.

To enter the drawing to win this necklace just comment on this post telling me your favorite Christmas gift that you are giving to someone this year. My favorite so far is the BBQ apron that I made for my brother-in-law. I will keep comments open until noon(ish) on Friday, December 17th. Be sure to leave your email address in your comment so that I can contact you if you win. Thank you and good luck!

*I've decided to leave comments open until I get home from work tonight. So you have until approx. 11pm Mountain Time for a chance to win.

Beautiful! My favorite gift is a patchwork bag I'm making for my sister, but I won't be able to share pictures until after the holidays.

Brenda said...

my favorite gifts are aprons I'm making for my kids teachers.

deserae said...

I am making a quilt for my brother! It isn't finished yet, but it will be amazing! :)

Celeste said...

I am secretly making my husband a quilt that on one side has his t-shirts from college and the other side is shirts from high-school. It's really a gift for us both, he'll finally stop wearing these old stained shirts, and will have his own blanket to wrap up in while we watch tv!

Heather said...

This looks gorgeous!! I am going to make some cute little zipper pouches for my mom and sisters for cmas. I love the tutorial found on pink pinguins blog. I think they will be my favorite gifts to give this year.
Thanks for the great giveaway!

I made some cloth dolls for my girls with nightgowns and nightcaps, and for my boys a back pack for nature journaling and a pull-along dinosaur. The necklace looks outstanding!

Megan said...

What a lovely necklace! Sadly my Christmas gifts this year are not homemade (at least not of the sewing variety). I am very excited to see my husband open the remote control helicopter I got for him. He's never really been one for many toys or that kind of thing, but he's mentioned over and over again how he likes those things. Hopefully he'll be surprised and enjoy it! Thanks for the chance to win!

I love her and hope she enjoys it. Thanks for the giveaway!!

Claire said...

My favorite gift is the winter coat I bought my husband...it's a dark grey prep coat. The funny part is that my parents bought our daughter the EXACT same coat...they'll be like little twins, except one is in his 30s and one is not quite a year old! Haha.

My favorite Christmas gift I am giving is the exersaucer I am giving to my newest nephew who was born with clubfeet. he has never been able to sit in one because of the casts changed weekly and then the brace with the bar between his legs.

Thanks for the chance to win. Favourite gift I am giving is the bag I am making my daughter:-)

grubbyfox said...

I had to add the button to my blog the hard way. I uploaded the image to my blog, then typed in the following. The "img src" is where ever on your blog the image was loaded to:

[a href="http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/"][img src="http://www.threecatlimit.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/GiveawayDayButton.jpg" alt="Sew Mama Sew" /][/a]

Only use pointy brackets instead of square brackets. :)

Good luck!

The gift I'm most looking forward to giving this year is a quilt. My husband still has a twin-sized Garfield sheet from when he was a kid. I'm turning it into an adult-sized quilt so he can sleep under it again.

I bet get a wriggle on though, there's not long to go till Christmas now!

Sarita said...

this is such a gorgeous necklace.
honestly, i have no idea what I'm getting ANYONE this year; my grandma has been in the hospital for a month and died last week, and so the holidays totally snuck up on me. Which is terrible, because normally I love doing Christmas gifts.
I had one king-sized bear paw quilt I was doing up for a Christmas present for a friend, but there's no way that's going to be done in a week and a half... luckily his birthday is at the end of January.
thanks for the opportunity to win your gorgeous piece of work! :) maybe i'd have to use it as one of my nonexistent gifties...

She got snowed in... and her snow blower broke. Ah! And I've never given a gift cert. for a massage before so I'm interested to see the look on my hubby's face for that one!

This is so pretty - I'm pregnant and looking for ways to accessorize the less than glamorous maternity attire.

My favorite holiday gift that I'm giving this year - a toss up between the art tote I'm making for my little girl and the Wii Fit board my sisters and I are giving our parents. Loving that at age 60+ they want to find a new way to exercise at home!

intastellaburst said...

Beautiful necklace! Thank you for the chance to win.
I'm not feeling overly enthusiastic about the gifts I'm giving this year. I'm hoping to make something lovely for my mum in the next week, but other than that, I'm hoping my sister and her husband like the pillowcases I decorated with Sukie iron-ons.

After years of crocheting, I taught myself how to knit recently and made up a hat for my boyfriend for Christmas. It's the first thing I've made for him in a loooong time (he doesn't fancy crochet)!

But I'm also pretty excited about a flat iron travel pouch that I made for my SIL. I'm new to sewing so, hopefully she'll like it and it won't fall apart!

I made my dad a Kindle cover for the Kindle my Mom is getting him - it isn't the prettiest thing I've made this year, but it almost killed me to get it right, so just by being completed, wrapped, and mailed it is my favorite. Thanks for the chance!

It has a place in the front for a picture. We're having our photos taken tomorrow. The Bible has a prayer plan that Grandmother is to focus on one child for 2 weeks.

Anita said...

I'm giving something to each of my children that will mean spending time with them later. For example, my three younger boys are getting a junior gps so that we can go geocaching.

mabblab said...

When my grandma had to stop sewing for health reasons, she gave me all of her fabric and supplies. Deep in the stash was a simple quilt top she had pieced from squares of the family's clothes. Some of them date back to the 40s! I am adding borders, backing, and quilting it and returning it to her. I love the history in it and I think it's fitting that it's taken members of different generations to finish the project.

Now I should quit entering giveaways and actually work on it! :) Thanks for the chance to enter! mab(at)onepost(dot)net

My favorite gift this holiday is for my mom. A buffalo checked (red and black) jacket. She got one for the guys for Christmas 2 years ago. I've been looking for one since, so she can match too... she'll be thrilled :)

My favorite dish (cause that's a gift to give too) that I'm preparing is gluten-free bread and butter pickles! I hope they'll be a hit!
Happy holidays!

unfortunately this year i'm not mking any presents because i've been in bedrest since summer due to a very complicated pregnancy (so at the same time it's for a very good reason). i did however planed on making my mother and my MIL aprons with xmas fabrics, not too matchy matchy because their personalities and tastes are very different. i thought of this because they cook xmas eve's meal together, it's their bonding time in the kitchen and it's a sight for sore eyes. next year i'll definetely make it.
please take the time to head over to my blog to participate in my giveaway too. i didn't make it to the list in time and it's something small, but there's still plenty of time and there are so few participants that you might actually have a chance to win something :)

That's a beautiful necklace (the finished one).

so pretty!
my favorite gift is the messenger bag I'm making for a cousin who is eleven. I'm stuffing four books from four of my favorite young adult book series inside & can't wait to finish & mail it off. It's just the thing I would have loved.

This is an amazing giveaway -- so beautiful! My fav gift so far is a project from the "I heart Linen" book that I made for my best friend -- it came out better than I could have hoped!

Oh, that's gorgeous!

My favourite gift this year might be the strange Star Wars book I'm giving my (24 year old) brother. The pictures appear to be moving, and I imagine he will spend quite a while laughing at me, for buying it!
