Your Christmas offer

Hello everyone. The sun is out and it ain't snowing. But my pants are tight and my roots are showing. Hey. You can't have everything.
But I did get another little tree done and bought more red bells! 












Decision made....
I decided on an offer that doesn't require packing or standing in lines at the post office, plus, it gives you the option range of primitive to elegant! 


Please leave your name on THIS POST ONLY to enter a drawing on December 19 at 8pm EST, for a $25 gift certificate at your choice of one of the following online shops. No need to tell me your choice until you are picked as the winner.
Down Sunshine Lane
Anita's Little Stitches
The Cottage Lane
123 Stitch

That's it! 
Thanks for participating - make sure you leave your name if you're anonymous and your email if you are no-reply.
Thanks!

You are such a delightful source of inspiration for decorating and stitching.
