Season Kick Off Giveaway Winners

Woke up to a day that totally felt like winter this morning. We had snow yesterday and this morning I could see the crisp full moon slowly, slowly trailing off into the 'sunset'. And as dawn brought the sunrise, I could tell by looking at the pale, pale skies that it must be cold out.  And, yes, it was (-19C aka -2F) -- certainly the lowest we've seen so far this year. With such a frosty feeling outside, it seems the perfect foil for a cozy ambiance inside where we have our Seasonal Kickoff Giveaway Draw for Jacquie Lawson goodies.

Without further ado ... well, maybe a drum roll please, here are our three winners:

Gift One.  Victorian Theme e-Advent Calendar
  The Winner is Karen @ Beatrice Euphemie
Woohoo, Karen!

 Gift Two. Christmas Market e-Advent Calendar
The Winner is Sandi @ Rose Chintz Cottage
Yippee, Sandi!

Gift Three. Gift Membership to Jacquie Lawson Website
The Winner is Lynn Marie @ The Morton Street Project
Wonderful, Lynn Marie!

CONGRATULATIONS to Karen, Sandi, and Lynn Marie! You are in for a real treat. I'll be popping over to your blogs and leaving you a note for your email address -- then I'll have Jacquie Lawson website send your gift to you in time for December 1st.

An E-Christmas Card by Jacquie Lawson

Now for those of you who entered the draw and didn't win, there is something special for each of you too. I'm just as tickled to send you one of Jacquie Lawson's gorgeous Christmas e-cards. Her cards are exquisite and almost as fun to receive as the advent calendar -- I'd love to choose one that I think you'll enjoy.

I'll check your blogs for your emails, but if I don't have a way of contacting you, please send me your email (see the sidebar for my e-address). Also, please note I'm not collecting anyone's emails for any mailing list -- we're friends here so it's just for personal use.

Happy Day with hugs,
And a very Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends!


  1. Congratulations to the winners! Please can you look out for an email from me about the card swap, thanks, xx

  2. Congratulations to the winners! I'm a wee bit envious of the snow, but we are enjoying cold crisp just below freezing temperatures this week. I love it!

  3. Thank you Brenda! I'm so excited! I love Jacquie Lawson's e-cards and I'm sure the calendar will be adorable. Have a beautiful day and enjoy the snow!

    Autumn blessings,
