Holiday Cheer *Giveaway*

How about a little holiday giveaway?

giveDSCN0541

I’ve won some nice things lately so I put on my thinking cap to decide what I could make that my blog buddies would enjoy. And I decided to make some tea cup coasters out of cute Christmas fabric.

Stephanie showed us how to make them in her tutorial HERE. Thanks for sharing Stephanie!

The only thing I’ve changed, is increasing their size so that a coffee mug or hot cocoa cup would fit on them.

(the creative process! teehee!)

Oh did I say ‘them’? I had this great idea and wanted to get the party started but I’ve only made one so far. By the end of the day, I should have THREE for the lucky winner! And I’ll include some of my favorite tea in the package.

I know all of my blog buddies have a wonderful imagination. So imagine that there are three and they are all cute!

I would love for you to be a follower. Anyone can enter and I’ll announce the winner on Thursday morning so that I can get them in the mail this week!

Happy Holidays!

Those are adorable Diane, and just perfect for little Christmas gifts. I'm a tea drinker and would love to have one for under my cup of tea.

What a thoughtful giveaway you have come up with, Diane. Your first mug rug is adorable. Bound to put a smile on the lucky winners face. Judging by this one, I'm sure the others will be as cute as can be.

Hello Diane, you are so sweet to make these and at a time of the year when I am sure you are very busy. They are adorable, but not as adorable as you for holding this lovely holiday give-a-way :) Please put my name in the hat, and good luck and good cheer to the winner :)

Ohh I do love these and they are so cute in holiday fabric. I am the lucky one - I already have two of them in summery fabric - made by Diane - and they are the most wonderful things for under a cup of tea. Good luck to all.

Hi Miss Lavender Dreams,

Bee-u-tee-ful Christmas coasters, you are so creative. I would love to be entered in this giveaway, but is it open to teddy bear followers? Giggle.

I am glad you made them the size for a mug of hot chocolate, 'cause that means they would be the perfect size for a glass of milk with honey.

Heaps of Hugs
Prudence
