sharing and caring giveaway


The Girlie Office Tree

Again, my most heartfelt thanks for all of the warm comments, for sharing of yourselves and for reminding me that it's okay to share, too. I am overwhelmed and comforted more than I can say. As a gesture of my appreciation I am having a giveaway. {I hope this doesn't seem wacky}



All you need to do is leave a comment on this post to be entered into a drawing to win the clothespin girl, tinkered can, and cottage clips pictured above.



As many of you can relate, much comfort can be found in doing, making, creating and sharing. Having this little giveaway seems like a happy way to fulfill all of those "requirements." As you can see, I am now playing with cupcake liners. Playing is good.

A winner will be selected at random on Saturday, 12/18 by 12 noon.

{Bellamere Cottage} said...

Everything is adorable Elyse.... and whatever you do to comfort yourself is OK..... My daughter had a big party to celebrate her husband on the first birthday after his death. Some thought it was tacky.... But it was wonderful for many to share sweet memories with her and each other. And, for her it was just right.... I'm praying peace and comfort for you. It's just a few days until my the anniversary of my Mum's death two years ago... Time will make you feel better, I promise....

Comforting hugs,
Spencer

Angie said...

oh my gosh! Those are precious! I hope I win!

You are such a loved blogger and we all want to be here for you :) I have wanted one of your clothespin dolls since you started making them :) Thank you so much Elyse, for having such a generous giveaway. And I know just what you mean about creating!! I have done a lot of it lately for my new home and it has been so therapeutic!
Love and hugs,
Amy
