Frosty Festivities Christmas & Winter

A Giveaway! Sponsored by SJ Crafts {NOW CLOSED}

(This post is part of my Frosty Festivities Blog Event)

I am happy to announce that SJ Crafts is sponsoring one of the giveaways {NOW CLOSED} this weekend! Sarah is a really lovely lady, and I’m not just saying it because she picked me to be on her Design Team again! 

Sarah stocks a fabulous selection of scrapbooking and crafting products. Here’s some of my favourites that are in stock, which I don’t own yet, but I’m seriously tempted to order:
1. The Echo Park This & That Christmas Collection Kit – I’ve already got quite a lot of Christmas/winter scrapbook items, but there’s something about this kit that’s calling to me! I think it might be the wood patterns mixed in with the reds and greens:
2. Studio Calico Mr Huey ‘Classic Calico’ Mist – I’m slowly building up my mist supplies, and I think this might be the next shade that I ‘need’!:
3. Glitz Cashmere Dame Washi Tape ‘Blue Polka’ – My family and friends can tell you I have a thing for white-on-blue polka dots. This tape would be awesome for winter projects, or just for wrapping extra special gifts or sealing envelopes:
I asked Sarah to tell us what she likes about winter…
I’m delighted to be invited to be one of the sponsors for Jennifer’s Frosty Festivities Event!  

Sarah’s back garden in winter!
This season is definitely right up there as one of my favourite times of the year! 
I love the excitement that gradually builds as we get closer to the 25th December. 
Yes, life gets crazy busy as I write list after list and endeavour to get everything ticked off, and yes I do worry if I’ll forget to buy the turkey, or the house won’t be ready for my family to come and stay, or what if their flight gets cancelled due to the winter weather, as it did a few years ago. 

Some of the the best things about this time of year for me are the simple things, like snuggling up in the evening to watch a film, sitting making Christmas cards with my daughter, or watching her carefully write her letter to Santa (which she has already done this year!) in her very best handwriting.

I love the mornings when I wake up to a white blanket of snow. Those days when I go to bed having heard the weather forecast but still thinking “We’ll not get snow …. we never get snow this close to the south coast!” … but we do each time. I love how beautiful it looks laying unspoilt and untouched on the trees and ground!  It’s these moments that make Winter so special! 
Thanks Sarah! I live near Sarah and I have the same worries when snow is forecast – worrying that it won’t actually arrive! Unfortunately it’s usually more of a dusting in my town but it still looks pretty!

  1. I *love* Echo Park 🙂 I’m also a fan of SJ Crafts – even more so now I see this generous prize!! A favourite item, sadly currently out of stock, would be the American Crafts Ribbon Rose – the white one – because you can use it as is or ink and dye it to match your project 🙂

I’m sure there is nothing in the shop that Jennifer hasn’t already got her eye on … but having been recently converted to 6×6 pads by a certain set of ladies (you know who you are!)
