2011 Stocking Give Away

***Give away closed. Congratulations Pam!! ***



This year has been flying by. Before we know it Christmas will be here. How are you doing on making your Christmas gifts? I have absolutely zero gifts made lol. It looks like this year is going to be the year of the gift card! At least I know everyone will get exactly what they want, right?




I made a new button for this year's Stocking Give Away. It even has a code box (thanks to my wonderful Daughter) to make it easy for everyone to add to their blog. Shocking!! You can find the button over there --------> on the top right side of my blog.

If you're new or just want to know what I'm jabbering about see this post. Basically it says this:

" We will be making a stocking and filling it with any fun goodies of your choosing. Your stocking will need to be made and posted on your blog in time for the giveaway. This year you should be prepared to have your blog posts up on November 28th. With the drawing to be held on December 5th. That gives everyone the opportunity to shop on Black Friday for any great deals and also gives the stocking time to reach it's destination in time for Christmas."


Your stocking can be handmade or store bought. You can give away just the stocking or you can add some goodies that may or may not fit inside the stocking. 


I will be doing mini random give aways between now and then. 




Mandy made this image for me too :)






To be entered in this mini mystery give away just add the 2011 Stocking Give Away to your blog and then add your blog link to Mr. Linky below.  Even if you aren't interested in giving away a stocking you can still enter this give away.  Want to know what I will be giving away? That's a good question...I haven't decided yet. It could be a quilt pattern, or some fabric, or..... If you would like an extra entry you can post about the stocking give away and send them over here to learn more. I'll draw a name on October 1st.

This looks so fun, when I get these quilts done I'll do some thinking about it ok? I'm just a bit overwhelmed at the moment, lol...and btw, I think gift cards are a great idea!

Hi Robin, I would love to be in your Giveaway and in the Stocking Swap (that is what it is, essentially, isn't it?), too.

However, I am with Maria - I need a little more explanation - must be those ageing brain cells of mine lol!

Hugs, Kaye xoxox

There is just so much going on this time of year that I don't think I could add another into my schedule. Have you thought about maybe doind something similar during the middle of the year when things are a bit calmer? It does look like fun though. I will post your button on my sidebar to let others know.

Hello Robin... I'm working on the stocking today. I've got a busy time coming up (don't we all)... and I didn't want to sign up until I was sure I'd be able to have at the stocking ready for the giveaway. So I should be back in the next day or two to add my name to the list.

supermom said...

I'm all signed up now Robin and I even figured out how to add the button to my sidebar. Thanks for hosting this!
