18...A Giveaway & My Christmas Giveaway

***UPDATE*** I used the random number generator thingy...and the winner is...Penny from Bee and Bean! Congratulations Penny! I always feel bad for those who don't win, but hopefully, we will have made a new contact here in blogland and I hope to see you guys back!
Day to go...
You have got to hop on over to The Great Christmas Giveaway site and check out the giveaway being hosted by Angelina's Trinkets. The amount of generous, lovely items she is giving away is truely amazing! She will be drawing names on Christmas Day!

In that spirit, I am having my Christmas Giveaway! I am giving away a Santa hat purse made by yours truely! There will be a few other goodies along with the purse, but I want them to be a surprise, so they aren't pictured. This giveaway is open to EVERYONE! If someone internationally wins, though, due to the cost of postage, I can't guarantee that you will receive it before Christmas. I will be drawing the winner on the morning of December 12th so that I can get the package posted that day!

You do not have to have a blog to enter!

For one entry leave a post here on this blog entry. Say hi, tell me where you are from, tell me anything! Although you won't be penalized for a simple "pick me" message, I would love to have something more to read! I am trying to find some more blogland friends, and who knows, I could be your best friend in hiding!!!

For two extra entries post about my giveaway on your blog and leave me a second comment telling me you did and where your blog is!



That's it! I hope to hear from lots and lots of you!

Oh, forgot to tell you, I'm in the USA, Oregon. It's a beautiful place, although this time of year it is a bit gray and drear; however, I've notices quite a bit of bright green colors lately. I am sure we'll get some bad wheather soon enough though. My duaghter lived in Germany for several years and always said, "Mom, you'd love it here, it looks a lot like Oregon." My spouse always says that too. He was stationed in Germany for several years - a very long time ago.

Okay, I've talked enough. Have you stopped by my Angelina's Trinkets site too? I just posted an ultrasound picture of our new grandson. I'm so excited!

Blessings,
Angelina

This purse is so cute and I am hoping I win it. I collect purse patterns and have quite a few. I live in the panhandle of Texas, in Amarillo. I am always sewing something.

Thanks - Barbara

Merry, merry greetings Loralynn!
I saw your giveaway info on The Great Christmas Giveaway!

I'm in Roswell, GA which is N/W of Atlanta. I call my home "Mockingbird Manor" because we are sort of the Addams Family of the South...lol I love to write about the eccentricities and infamous antics that go on around here and will be writing about them on my blog on "The Arsenic Hour" page!

I think that your Santa Hat purse is tooooo cute! I can just see our new spoiled kitten hopping in it thinking that it's a new place for her to sleep!

I'm having 2 giveaways myself - hop on over and enter if you like!

And I'd also love to sign up to be entered. I live in Idaho Falls, Idaho, where I have beautiful mountain views and we just got some snow today! Not much, but it does help with the Christmas atmosphere.

How cute is that purse? I have to have it. Ok? You can just end the giveaway now and send it to: (do you have a pencil? No. I'll wait).

Ok, just kidding, but I do absolutely love that bag!! My name is Jessica and I just found your blog through BlogEventsDex. I'm outside of Seattle and I love all things crafty. I'm getting ready to put the kids down for bed, but I'm looking forward to snooping around on your blog tonight and posting about your giveaway! Cheers!

Hi!
What a cute purse!! I have just the right friend to give it to. She has purses of every kind imagineable - the weirder the better! NOT that I'm saying yours is weird! Just unusual. LOL

I love your attitude..lol...I can't believe someone wrote a better poem than that..lol..you are obviously a gifted writer :) After all these years on the net, I had never even heard of this type of giveaway until recently. YOu are really generous and I hope to join in with the fun next year with a Great Christmas Coffee giveaway! I'd be thrilled to be enetered in your giveaway, being a quilter/crocheter/sewer/coffee roating mom myself..lol..I can only imagine what's in the gorgeous bag! I'm also an honorary red hatter so the bag would be perfect for that too! (My mom is a super red hatter and I'm always invited to tag along)
