Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day

I came across Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day about a year ago. And I knew that I wanted to participate in it. So when I saw the blog post last week, I talked to Mom about it. And we agreed to be a part of the fun!

We have a few items that we're going to giveaway. Just some stuff from our stash. But I think they'd make some fun Christmas presents. :)


This is a stuffed tutu for a little girl. What little girl wouldn't enjoy playing dress up? And there are jingle bells in there too!


And a warm scarf for winter. The color is between a light blue and a turquoise color. But as you can tell, I can't find my camera. My phone camera doesn't have the best quality. But it is a nice and warm scarf.


And the best part, this is one of Mom's Strawberry Shortcake Dolls. Isn't it too cute? I wish I could keep this one for myself. Can you believe that I don't have one?


Here's a close up of her cute face! So cute!

So for all the rules. Just leave us a comment with your favorite holiday treat. You get an extra chance for a link to a recipe. Oh, and you can get a 3rd chance if you follow our blog. Good luck! And you have until Sunday, December 19th at 11:59PM MST.

Colleen said...

Thumbprint cookies are the favorite of my family of the 70-80 dozen cookies my mom makes. You HAVE to use strawberry jam as that is the best filling. Idont know why mom uses anything else-I thinks its because no one but her eat the others. LOL

VickiT said...

Oh my gosh! What adorable things in your giveaway. My Granddaughter would love every single one of those things.

My favorite holiday treat is something I make. I am sorry to say I do not recall where I found the recipe so I cannot link. I don't think it was online however.
Here is the recipe instead of a link. It's wonderful and SUPER quick to make. AND addicting.

Cinnamon Pecans
1/4 c evaporated milk
1 c sugar
1/4 t cinnamon
2 T water
1/4 t vanilla
3 c pecans

Combine all ingredients except pecans in a pan. Cook over medium heat till sugar is dissolved, add pecans and continue to cook stirring frequently. Cook until pecans are completely sugared with no syrup left in pan. Spread on wax paper and let cool. Break apart and enjoy.

Have a great holiday season.
