The Season of Giving

December 1st..... DAY 1 of the advent calendar and the "Season of Giving" Giveaway...... This year I made my own calendar instead of buying those $2 cardboard ones in the store.
An advent calendar is a special calendar used to count or celebrate the days in anticipation of Christmas and we have always had one in our home.
I made these from the Kaisercraft kits that are so popular.  I put them together last summer so that I was able to spray paint them outside.
This one was made for my daughter using Graphic 45's "Nutcracker Sweet" paper collection.  Since the age of 5 my daughter and my Mother have attended the Nutcracker Ballet performance every December so this one brings special meaning to Meagan.
And.... A couple of close-ups....

And because I loved this paper the minute I laid eyes on it..... this one is for me.  Made with the Pion Christmas collection from 2011.
And.... A couple of close-ups....

I hope all of you have a chance to enjoy an advent calendar and open a small box filled with a sentiment or a treat for the 24 days leading up to Christmas.

And now for the GIVEAWAY.......

This year has been very successful for Sun 7 Designs and as a way to say thank you to all of my customers I am having another giveaway - the last giveaway for 2012.
I would not be where I am today without the support of my friends and family... but most of all... without the support of my fantastic customers.
So.... to say thank you to all of you I am having a giveaway for one of my blankets.
This blanket is 20"x24" and has pink minkee flat on one side and white Minkee dot on the embroidered side.  Perfect for the little princess in your life or to give as a gift to someone special.
Just become a "follower" of my blog (if you are not one already) AND "like" my Facebook page.  Leave me a comment letting me know you have done this.... either on this post or on my Facebook page, and your name will be entered into the draw.
I will draw on December 10th, just in time for you to have this as a Christmas gift.
Thank you again to all my supporters and best wishes to all of you for a wonderful holiday season.
