Today launches my 2011 stocking giveaway.  I’ll be holding a giveaway for the Christmas stocking pictured below as part of the 2011 Stocking Giveaway  being hosted by Robin at RSIslandscrafts.
The winner will be drawn on December 5th
One Christmas Stocking
Measurements
Cuff to heel is 33.5cm (13") 


But wait, there's more than just a stocking.  Inside the stocking you will find SIX other gifts.

This give away is open to everyone, doesn't matter where you live. It will run from November 28th through to December 4th. On December 5th the lucky winner will be announced. 


As my son said, "That's a tidy prize mum, seven gifts all up.  Cool".  Therefore you need to do a couple of things to participate in the Christmas Stocking Giveaway.
1 entry into the draw = A comment will do nicely - that way if you're the lucky winner I have your email contact whereby I can get your address. 
2 entries into the draw = If you want to become a follower that would be cool too.
All entries will go into a bowl and my dear son will draw the lucky winner on 4th December.  I will post the details of the draw on the 5th December and pop the prize in the post as soon as I have an address from the winner. 
I'd love you to share where you plan to eat on Christmas day.  Are you entertaining family and friends at home, going to the beach or sitting by a nice warm fire?  If so, how many at your gathering?  If not, what will you be doing on Christmas day?  As for me, I'm hoping 15 family and friends can make it to my place for Christmas lunch and I'm so looking forward to it. 

Merry Christmas to my visitors and thanks for visiting.

I look forward to your comments and hearing about your plans for the big day.

  16. I plan on spending the holiday at my parents house Eve and Day. There's only 5 of us now. Which I personally like the small group. We started a new tradition on Christmas day. We put a puzzle together and then we get that special glue and make it into a picture so we can hang them up throughout the house come Christmas time. Even as all adults, we still head over to mom and dads Christmas day and open all of our presents then - just like when Santa came. Some habits are hard to break.

  17. Yikes! Thought I had joined your blog, but I found that I hadn't..I am following you now! Christmas meal? At home with kids and grand-kids...always a blessing because of their presence. They are getting older and will soon be gone, so these last seasons are so important!Aloha, Connie

  20. Gorgeous, gorgeous stocking Chris! Definitely adding my name! Everything you create with your skillful hands is a treasure and this stocking giveaway is full of treasure!

    I still can't get used to the idea that our friends down under as well as those in South America enjoy a holiday meal in "summer" weather! I understand many actually do a barbeque or picnic!

    Our "big" meal - always prime rib - happens on Christmas Eve so that when Diane and I spend the day together Christmas Day, we are free to make it a "smorgasbord" sort of - every appetizer - every heavy, calorie laden appetizer - we can think of and left over roast and turkey. That way there are no cooking chores - just munching on goodies we would normally not eat! makes for a very relaxing but still festive celebration. No hectic last minute scramble to put a big meal on the table.

  49. Love the stocking! The bells clinch it for me! :)
    We stay here on Christmas Day. My unmarried children come home and we enjoy our traditional Christmas morning Sticky Buns...I've been doing that for 20 yrs or so. Lunch is usually leftover meat pie or ham and eating up all the Christmas delicacies I've been cooking up all month...we are notoriously all sweet aholics!

  54. Beautiful stocking and wonderful gifts! How generous you are.

    I will host Christmas dinner at my house. Others present will include my husband, our son, our daughter and son-in-law, and my mother-in-law. My poor mother-in-law spent Thanksgiving alone because she wouldn't accompany us to our daughter's house, which is about a three-hour drive away.

    Have a Merry Christmas!

  59. What a great stocking! Love the addition of the bells. And so many cute things inside. Thanks for the chance to win.

    We're not sure where Christmas dinner will be this year or how many we'll be having as we are in the process of making a temporary move. Hopefully we'll know soon so that I can make some plans.
