A Crafter's Dream Giveaway

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

I'm so excited to present #ACraftersDream Christmas Giveaway! This giveaway is hosted by My Merry Messy Life, Earning-My-Cape and Tutus & Tea Parties and has a Christmas, crafting, and supporting small business theme! Each blogger is offering her/his own giveaway worth $25 or more going on now through Sunday, November 4, 2012.

All of the individual giveaways will feature handmade crafted items or crafting supplies. Everyone is looking to give and receive unique one of a kind gifts and this is a great way to try and win some for free, and also to discover some new businesses!

I am giving away a Wire Dragonfly Necklace and Czech Glass Earrings from Wired Essentials (my business).

Wire Dragonfly Necklace $20 Value

Czech Glass Earrings $10 Value
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.


Now you can hop from blog to blog entering as many giveaways as you want!

I've never actually given a handmade craft as a gift for holidays/birthdays. I have made ornaments and Christmas cards though and sent them out to family members during the holiday season, but not as their Christmas gift. Oh, well sometimes I do a mass amount of holiday themed baking and put huge baskets of the goodies together. Wap them in pretty cellophane and ribbon, and tag them. And I'll pass those out to my family members. I guess I think of baking a little differently from crafting, probably because I do it so often lol. If I had an actual crafting talent though, I would make gifts for people. I envy those who can. :) (Nikki Marie on rafflecopter)
