Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day!

It's been two months since I posted last... holy cow!

Most of what I've worked on I can't post, or don't have pictures of yet. But I've been pinning up a storm on Pinterest, decorating for Christmas, and trying to get all my Christmas presents done (more on that later!)

And since today is Giveaway Day, I have my very first giveaway to share!

  7. Oh my word - I thought these were apples in the preview image - teehee. Good thing I popped on over to find that they are gorgeous ornaments. Thank you for the chance to win them :)Apples - pfff.

    My favourite holiday crafting is making up little Xmas goodies for our home. I'm married to Mr Grinch, so have to sneak in Xmas one item at a time and accumulate them over time. One day he's going to wake up to Santa's North Pole Wonderland and have no idea how it got to that point - bwahahaha.

    If food stuff doesn't count, my favorite holiday craft is making the kids' Christmas pajamas. This year it's flannel pants, and the shirts have matching flannel appliques. They turned out so cute!

  26. Our local university has a christmas party with crafts for kids. So anything from that was so fun when I was little. I knew I would get to be creative: the pom pom teddy bear bell, painted santas, etc. Now the nephews are involved and we get things like christmas footballs. A bit ridiculous and fun.

  47. That's really clever - I'm very bad with glitter, but that looks like something I could manage! I like making little crocheted snowflakes - handy to tie onto a bigger gift, or as a gift in itself! dangandblast@gmail.com
