A Giveaway with a Twist!

I’d like to do a quick little giveaway with a twist...or two!
I made some little stockings out of fleece
and tucked a surprise inside of them!
DSCN9324
I received some Peppermint Lip Balms from Eco Natural Soap
and I have some extras to GIVE AWAY! So I made the
stockings and tucked a peppermint lip balm in each one!
DSCN9316
So here’s the deal....no rules...just holiday cheer!
Would you be willing to give one of these stockings away if I sent you TWO? You can give it to anyone you want, a relative, neighbor or friend!
Leave me your answer in your comment.
And for an extra entry visit Eco Natural Soap and tell me your favorite product.
Right now mine is the Peppermint Soap! I used it last night and it is fabulous! Lathers well...smells amazing! Just having it in the soap dish makes the whole bathroom smell wonderful! And my hubby uses the lip balms and loves them!
DSCN9319
I’ll make this a quick giveaway so that I can get your gift to you before Christmas! It will end December 12th. I’ll give the winner the choice of any two stockings they want!

Happy Holidays
to all my sweet friends that visit me here every day!

Prims and Annies said...

Hi Diane,
The stockings are sooo cute..did not know that you were so good at crafting. I would love to win and would give one to my granddaughter who is 5 and loves lip balm. The peppermint is my favorite...so minty and fresh..I have peppermint soap in the kitchen.
The stocking with the leopard print is so cute..I will have to look for the fur..I plan to make some tree ornaments.
I visited Eco Natural's site and the product that would like to order is the arthritis joint relief balm...I have developed arthritis in several fingers. Also, like the free shipping. Thanks for directing me there.

Smiles and Huggs,
Maxie

Hi Diane! I've just received some soap from Eco Natural yesterday! I got some of that lip balm and it's wonderful! What a wonderful giveaway and thanks so much for popping in to see me.
be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Della said...

You are so sweet and full of holiday cheer! I would be glad to give away one of your stockings! Sharing is caring! As for my favorite product from Eco Natural...I haven't tried any, but as I was looking at their website, and thought the citrus body balm sounded amazing (and just my scent) the pet skin and paws allergy relief balm caught my eye. My grandpuppy seems to be allergic to ants and is always licking and chewing his paws for relief. I'm going to have to put some in his stocking!

Hugs, Della

Paulette said...

How adorable are these little Christmas stockings? I would absolutely give one away. During the holidays I love to surprise people, for example, I paid for the car behind me at Starbucks. I was a little shocked at the 20.78 bill but I enjoy "paying it forward." Thanks for the opportunity to win these two cuties.❤

Hi, Diane, I now follow your blog. It reminded me of the lavender beds I used to have in Plymouth. I have a dear lady across the street that I will give the 2nd stocking to if I win. I am posting to my blog sidebar about your giveaway.
Thanks for hosting.

Cozy Home Scenes said...

Hi Diane-

You're such a gracious friend to part with your creations. I'm sure there any of my family and friends would love one of those stockings and we all need lip balm this time of year. Count me in!

Mary said...

Hi Diane ..I just became a follower..I would give my stocking to my neighbor if I won. She would love it. Adorable.

Betsy said...

These are adorable! Yes, I think I might be able to part with one and already have the perfect recipient in mind. Thanks Diane for this very generous giveaway.

Jann Olson said...

What a sweet give away. You bet I would be willing to give one away. I have a sweet friend (we have been friends since the 6th grade) she has been battling breast cancer for over a year. She is doing well, her hair is growing back and she has a wonderful attitude. I would give her one without a blink of the eye. She is always doing for others. I happen to ask her if she had noticed any wild rose hips growing anywhere along her bus route. She is an aide on a bus. That afternoon there was a knock on my door. There she was holding a sack full of rose hips. Love your little stockings. Happy Holidays!

Michell said...

Yes I would share with my daighter she loves little thing like this

Michell said...

Like the lips balms. Never have enough here

Rain said...

nancy huggins said...

Oh my goodness..I just went and checked the web site and can't remember what it is called but is for joint pain I think. If I was to share one of the lip balms I would share with my Daughter or my Grandson that loves Peppermint (I might even share and give them both away..tis the season) :)
Please enter me in the drawing and I have a place all picked out for the stockings...don't know if I would give them away...or keep them :)

sissie said...

Cheryl G. said...

I would love to give one to my friend and neighbor. She has three small children and would love a treat like that!

Cheryl G. said...

I checked out the site and the Peppermint soap sounds lovely and I would smell like Christmas!

DaCraftyLady said...

wow lots of entries, I am in I love the Bath & Body Sitrus smells, I just love the smells of oranges and melons...yum yum,,,, I would give one of these stockings to my neighbor she is retired and lives alone and I like to remember her at the holidays and usually give her a dish of my homemade cookies, but this added stocking would be a perfect little extra gift, she is always there when I am in need and I'd like to give this to her. :) So I have two entries... :)

DaCraftyLady said...

I think I was suppose to actually make a second comment for the visit to the Eco soap...so here is my second comment

However, I have several people I'd like to give it to.
Something we can all use!

LindyLouMac in Italy said...

So cute, but I will not enter as we will not be here for Christmas, so I doubt if I won it would reach me anyway. :(

DogsMom said...

For sure I would share with a friend, or maybe a family member in the hospital.

DogsMom said...

I would like to try the arthritis and joint relief balm.

Ali said...

Of course I'd be "willing" to give them away. Whether or not I could bring myself to do it though is quite another matter! LOL! I'm a big fan of organic skin care products and this is a brand I've not heard of. I'll be sure to visit their website.

Marander Studios said...

What a gorgeous blog ~ thank you for entering MY giveaway and for sending me to your world. I LOVE lavender and once I post this note I will investigate this outstanding cozy little place of yours. Please enter my name for your giveaway. I am putting the finishing touches on my box to deliever to the local Veterans Center and if I am fortunate enough to win ~ I will include the lavender stockings with the peppermint lip balm. I know that whomever they choose to give it to will be thrilled. Most people don't realize that not only are the packages and gifts delivered to people serving all over the world but in our community they also take care of veterans from previous wars and conflicts who are retired and living in our community. Many are women (quite a few nurses still living from WW II) and they LOVE to be remembered. Thank you so very much for offering this gorgeous and generous Giveaway. Hugs, Marilyn
