My First Give Away!! FREE PILLOW!

I have been wanting to do a give away for a while and I think now is the perfect time! This give away is for one of my small hand sewn Christmas pillows.
Enter now until Sunday, December 4th. I will announce a winner on Monday and ship out the pillow so that you can enjoy it in your home or give it as a gift :)

I hand sewed Dream and each of the snow flakes. There's something about snow that is just majestic. Growing of in the Panhandle of Texas, we got some snow but not really very much. I remember being in my dorm in PA one time and hearing something hitting the roof. I walked outside and to my amazement the biggest, softest, loudest snowflakes I had ever seen or heard were falling so perfectly...it was so quiet outside, peaceful and dreamy. I enjoyed every second...aah, maybe we'll see some snow this winter at some point :)

Jacqueline, you are so talented! I love the details and uniqueness of this pillow :) It's not necessarily a "tradition", but i do enjoy Christmas lights...indoor and outdoors!

I love your work. You are so talented! Our favorite tradition is making Christmas cookies with the family. Since we are staying home for the first time ever on Christmas day this year, we are starting a new tradition. The weekend before Christmas we will be going to Dallas to celebrate with my family by having a Happy Birthday Jesus party. We are all looking forward to it and praying that it will be another opportunity to teach my children and remind us adults of the real reason for the season!

Jacqueline, you are so very talented and this pillow is simply beautiful! I would love to win this and would think about you and Wade each Christmas season! My favorite holiday tradition is Christmas morning breakfast at my grandparents' house where my grandfather fixes something he calls "Eggs-a-la-Goldenrod". It is a time for our whole family to come together and celebrate and has always been my favorite tradition!

This pillow is so beautiful. You are so talented!!!

So you asked for a favorite family Christmas tradition... In our family we each open our gifts one at a time so we can thank the person that gave them to us. Also it is fun because we get to see the reaction on their face as they open their gift. It gives us time to enjoy each other, to laugh at each other and to tell each other how grateful we are to have them. I am so blessed to have a family that believes in the true meaning of Christmas. Thank you Lord!!

Where to start...... We have wrapping paper fights! After all the gifts are open we gather all the paper and ball it up! It's fabulous to see everyone laughing and carefree! Merry Christmas!

Love the pillow and all the ones I've seen you make. Can't wait to see you Christmas. Favorite tradition: We have a nativity scene where baby Jesus is wrapped and we unwrap him and put him in the manger as our first gift opened to remind us that it's His birthday and that's why we give gifts.

I LOVED reading everyone's traditions!! Thanks so much for sharing! In case you didn't find out through Facebook, Cassie won the pillow :) Thanks to everyone who entered and I look forward to doing more giveaways in the future!
