Sew, Mama, Sew Giveaway Day! #1

Giveaway Day

Today is Giveaway Day! Wahoo! I love these Sew, Mama, Sew days! I think they are a lot of fun! Though I always have a hard time trying to figure out what to giveaway.

So for today's giveaway I am offering
one charm pack of these 16 Lizzy Dish fabrics!
(5" squares cut from my stash)

I've been having so much fun with these lately! Using them for I-spy charms and Polaroid blocks. These are an old collection, so I will be sad when they are gone, but they're too much fun not to share!

To Enter: 
only ONE is mandatory

1. Leave a comment on my blog telling me what your favorite Christmas tradition is
2. Follow my blog and leave a comment letting me know how you do!
3. Go enter the giveaway at The One Stop Giveaway Shop and let me know you did! :)

Good luck!

Giveaway will end 12/07 @ 5pm PST
Open to international entries!
p.s. I am offering one more giveaway as well, so don't miss it!


ok, I guess I'll answer my own question as well. I LOVE Christmas time!! When I was younger my aunt gave me a "24 Days of Christmas" Book. There is a Christmas song and a story for every day of December until Christmas. Now that I have my own little family we sing a song, read a scripture and read a story every night. It is so much fun! And definitely helps us focus on the true meaning of Christmas. It's funny too because even though we've been doing this for a few years now, my hubby and I still cry and tear up at all the stories! It's hard not too. :)
