My Merry Messy Life: A Crafter's Dream Giveaway #ACraftersDream

Welcome friends!  

It’s finally here! A BIG Crafter’s Dream Christmas Giveaway.  An awesome giveaway put together and hosted by My Merry Messy Life, Earning-My-Cape and Tutus & Tea Parties.  The theme of the giveaway was designed to support small businesses by offering Christmas and crafting gifts from their shops! All 57 bloggers are offering her/his own giveaway worth $25 or more going on now through Sunday, November 4, 2012.

The first gift is a beautiful handmade necklace and earring set from Uniquities by Kristen.  This set is a silver ring cascade set in Capri Blue.  Kristen is an amazing lady, a sweet high school friend, and a very good Mary Kay Rep as well! (Value $40)

The next gift in the package is from “Original Flat Bottles” who can be found on Etsy.  These have got to be one of the coolest things I have ever seen.  I’m having a hard time giving this away! I definitely will be buying some as gifts.  The bottles are flattened (slumped) and you can pick your label.  They have a ton to choose from or you can add a custom label!  These can be used as decor or a serving plate. (Value $25)

Then to round off this package, while you are dressed up in your fancy necklace and earrings, enjoying cookies on your new serving bottle, you can have the most delicious cup of coffee you have ever had!  No, I am not exaggerating.  This bag of Farm Fresh Coffee by Don Tomas is just that… Fresh.  The beans are raised on a small farm in Nicaragua by the people who work and live there.  They have worked hard to build a “Cultivating Community”.  Please do visit the website and read their story.  What a remarkable company they are! (Value $13)

Total Value: $98

Christmas is just around the corner, and the time to start crafting our gifts for friends and family is now! Some of the blogs in the giveaway group will be giving away some awesome crafting supplies!

Sometimes we want to give a handmade gift, but just don’t have the time or know-how to make them ourselves. This is a great opportunity to support small businesses and shops who offer handmade items! Some of the blogs in our giveaway group will be highlighting such small businesses and offering giveaway items for them, as well. Even if you don’t win the giveaway, we hope that you will keep these small businesses in mind when shopping for that perfect gift for your special someone.
