Bloggy Give-Away!

Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival Button


So I've been entering a few (okay a lot) of Bloggy Give-aways this evening over at Don't Try This at Home and I started to feel guilty because I was not offering anything here... so I thought I'd rectify that.

I'm generally a crafty person but with school and the holidays and everything going on I honestly don't know when or what I would have time to make. But I do love Christmas! So... I thought I would put together a Christmas surprise basket. It may contain an ornament or two, some music, some recipes, and maybe something hand crafted if I have time... and if you have something else you would really like to see in the basket put that in your comment and you never know! It might show up in there too (thinking teas, hot chocolates... Starbucks? Who knows! Don't you love surprises?).

So, here is what you need to do:

1. Leave a comment below with a way for me to contact you and one of your favorite physical things about Christmas (the cookies, the candles at church, etc).

2. Go check out the other give-aways! There are lots!

3. Come back and check in with me from time-to-time if you have interest in theatre, home projects, craft projects, living in Colorado, or anything else Jenna related.

I'll close the drawing when I get up on Saturday morning (it could be late... we're having a Halloween party at our house) and draw a name then!

Wow... a physical part of Christmas? Well, i'd have to say our tree. It's not real- it's fake. However, we make sure to pretty it up to make it look real nice. In fact, I still wish I had some pictures of it. It was beautiful last year!!

My favorite part of Christmas is my nativity collection - many of them stay out year-round (its like having a bit of christmas with you all the time), but I really pull them all out in december. :-)

Thanks for the opportunity!

Mistress Meeyee said...

Just one thing?? Well, I love Christmas pies but I have to say hot chocolate with marshmallows and eggnog are really wonderful too!

Deborah Bates Cavitt said...

My favorite physical part of Christmas is going Christmas Light sight-seeing around the various neighborhoods. Touring by car to see Denver's Capitol Lights was a tradition drive every year. I'll never forget. I always find someone to buy a postcard of the lights and send it to me. (Hint Hint)

Your Halloween party sounds fun! We are taking the boys out with some of my cousins' kids.

Lexie said...

physical thing of xmas? hmmm...

the ornaments. I love looking at our old ones and shining them up, or going through stores and finding new ones. Sparkley ones always distract me while lit ones make me forget everything else. Old timey ones--glass balls and such--make me sigh with happiness.

have fun on halloween! I get to...finish a speech due on Monday XD

Duh, I forgot to tell you my favorite "physical" part of Christmas. I'd have to say it's the tree! I have so many memories around the tree.
Okay sorry about the two posts.
Blessings,

Amber said...

Spending time with my family and opening presents together is my fave :)

Kristi said...

We love Christmas so much that we got married four days before just so the decorations would be Christmassy. My favorite physical thing about Christmas are the lights. There are some in our living room that we never took down and my sons put them on all the time and "play Christmas"

mer@lifeat7000feet said...

Hi Jenna...I'd love to enter your giveaway!

One of my favorite things about Christmas is the wonderful smells...pine, cinnamon, cool crisp air! I love it all!

PS--I live between Co Springs and Denver! Glad to find another Colorado blogger. I'm bookmarking your blog! Thanks for stopping by mine!

Laura said...

I love the ornaments!

Merry said...

I love the tree. The smell, the fun of picking through all the ornaments and remembering past holidays, the simple fun of sitting by the window and watching the snow fall while the tree shines brightly.

julie said...

even though I am 40 ...my mom still makes me a stocking with my fave candy toblerone in it ..aahhh the smell when I open it

Stephanie said...

Hi Jenna,

Yay - I'll enter your giveaway! I have two favorite things about Christmas - smells and lights. I am so partial to the smells of pine, crisp air and cinnamon that I often have soap and candles with the scents year round - lol! Also, I love being surrounded by lights both inside my house and in the neighborhood. So pretty. You know where you can get a hold of me :-)

Jen said...

Lets see what is my favorite thing at Christmas...it must be our tree...no the lights...oh no its the candles...OH i can't decide. Please enter me for the give a way. Candles are great items for gift baskets!

Mrs. McB said...

Hmm-I love Christmas!
Probably the best is the twinkling lights on the tree.

Toiling Ant said...

I love my German Christmas candle carousel... it's one of my favorite things!

Jackie P. said...

My favorite part of Christmas is getting out the ornaments that I made for our very first Christmas Tree in 1970.Memories :).I also love the baking and all of the great smells of the season.

Trish said...

I love the Christmas tree. We always had a real one, and the smell and the lights. Brings back memories!

paryjeja said...

I love my son's Christmas tree, it is purple, white, gold and silver and was my favorite Christams gift to him of all time.

koopermom said...

Putting up the Christmas tree is my favorite thing to do!!

Pam said...

Wow. This giveaway is right up my alley. I absolutely adore Christmas. It's my favorite time of year and even now, in October, I'm already in the holiday spirit (much to the annoyance of my coworkers). I can't help it...I just love everything about the holidays Everyone is so happy and cheerful; it's a wonderful time of year.

It's hard to pick just one favorite physical thing. It's a toss up between our family Christmas tree...which we still put up and decorate as a family every single year..and our traditional family Christmas cookie. We are part Norwegian and it's a tradition to make Sanbakkles together. It started with my Grand Grandma and now we have them every single Christmas. They are so buttery and delicious...the perfect Christmas cookie.

Oh boy...I feel the Christmas spirit coming on stronger than ever now! Thanks! :)

Nancy said...

I cannot name my one favorite thing about Christmas, because there are so many. But one of my favorites is the Christmas tree. I love the glow of the lights and the peacefullness it brings. I love to decorate it too, with all the ornaments that I have collected throughtout my life.
If I were to win I would love some Christmas music thrown in, because I am in need of more variety.
Thanks for the giveaway.

Lisa Sharp said...

lindabelle said...

A couple of years ago we turned our tree into a more personable Christmas decoration. Rather than having random ornaments or a necessary theme we decided to purchase, make, select ornaments that defined who we really are. Every ornament on our tree, regardless of how it was acquired, says something about one or all of us. It has been beautiful the past two years and we don't expect this year to be any different.

Kim said...

I love our tree ornaments. Each year we all get a new one that represents us best. I love unpacking my kids ornaments and seeing how their tastes have changed over the years.

malleycc said...

I love during midnight mass the candles lit and how beautiful it looks. Of course since the kids have been born I haven't taken them to it (too cold too late). Maybe this year.

Chelle said...

I love the Christmas lights on homes and businesses. They seem so magical, calming, peaceful.

Thank you for an amazing giveaway!

My favorite part of christmas was always setting up the Nativity scene. Mom had a cardboard one that I tried to make "new" figures for (eeek, no comparison) and it was always MY task. We have a lovely ceramic set from Aunt Estee that was a wedding gift and is put away until it's not in so much danger, but Mom and Dad got the boys the FISHER-PRICE Nativity set last year so we can PLAY with it!

I love my Christmas Tree Ornaments. My mother began giving us one ornament a year (all three of us girls got the same ornament just a different character or symbol.) After I graduated from High School i was presented with my ornaments. They have been my cherished pieces ever since.

Christmas lights on proch railings. Cocoa or tea would be nice in the basket.

I love that Christmas tree smell (or wreath smell, since our tree is artificial). We smell the tree at church.

My beautiful Demdaco Nativity set that my husband bought for my 30th birthday is my favorite Christmas item.

May Canadians enter? I do love the cookies (and I love to bake them), but since you already mentioned that I'll pick another favourite: I love the games. Not Christmas games specifically, but we play crokinole and cards a lot over the holidays.

I hope you have a great Halloween party!

Is Christmas music physical? I usually have a hard time restraining myself until after Thanksgiving to break out all the CDs. :)
