A BIG new giveaway and Merry Christmas to all!

Our family Christmas party was a huge success.  There was wayyyy too much food but who's complaining!  The little grand daughters sang a nice round of Christmas carols for us, dressed in their Christmas finery!  So cute and serious they were.

This week is filled with baking, cooking and cleaning in preparation for the big holiday weekend.  In you busy lives, my wish is that you would stop and think about the true meaning of Christmas, the ultimate gift that God could give us, our Savior Jesus Christ!!!!!

In the spirit of the season, I want to do my own giving, and so I'm having giveaway-last one of this year.
I'm calling this one, The Twelve Months of Christmas.  For the coming year, one lucky winner will recieve one free pattern each month of their chosing!  Any pattern at all!

In order to get in on this one, you will need to be on my email list, or be a follower of my blog, or post this giveaway on your blog, or just simply comment on this post.  You will get your name added to the contest for each of these.  That gives you alot of chances to win!
So, good luck to all, I will draw the winners name next Monday, Dec. 27 at 7 p.m.

Merry Christmas!!!!

Hi Maureen,What a awesome giveaway!Your tree story reminds me of one of my stories. I always wanted to cut down our own tree, so a few yrs back, we went off to finally cut one down,as we set off on our journey threw the woods, We came acrossed a cute mid. size tree that had already been cut and just laying there in the snow,needless to say, I felt bad for the tree, that it was going to be wasted. So I conviced my girls to get that tree, I knew once decorated it was going to be beautiful! Needless to say Christmas eve as we layed the presents under the tree, you could here, tinkle,tinkle(the needles dropping,like flies). By christmas morning, that beautiful tree was BARE TO THE BRANCH, not a needle to be found, on the tree...needless to say, that was the one and only time, we ever went to cut down our own. LOL....Anyways please enter me in your contest. (1) I am a follower
(2) I will post on my blog
(3) I am already on your email list:Angelshere4utwo (4)All ready left a comment.. Wishing you and yours a wonderful Christmas, and a Happy and Healthy New Year!

Hi Maureen, I thought I was already a follower of your blog, I come often, but I just don't leave alot of messages. I have several of your patterns, and I just love the newest ones which I'm hoping after the first of the first I can afford to buy. I wish there is some way you could start selling e-patterns, for that is what I mostly buy now. But I do love those new ones that I have seen. Here is wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. God Bless
