It's time for a giveaway! { Gooseberry Patch Bookazines}

Hi dear friends! 

{I hope your weekend was a lovely one!}

I don't know about you, but I'm thinking it is time for a giveaway! It has been a while since we have done one, but we have a few of them up our sleeve now! :)
Once it is October, my thoughts always turn to Christmas...what we will be giving to our family and friends for Christmas, what recipes I want to bake, decorations I'd like to make...

And seriously, I have not found a better go-to for all of this than Gooseberry Patch's annual Christmas bookazine. No matter what your interest is, this is guaranteed to please!

There are gorgeous gift ideas

as well as sweet crafts you can decorate your own home with.

And whether you enjoy cooking like my sister Belle,

or are like me, and prefer baking,

there are wonderful looking recipes for either!

Oh, and aprons! Just when I thought it could not get any better...

Have I ever told you how much I love vintage aprons {or their look-alikes!}?

Patterns are included in the back of the bookazine! I can't decide which apron is cuter...

So, because I love and enjoy this Christmas bookazine so, we must share it with you! 

Actually, we have TWO copies of it to share!

For your chance to win, just leave a comment and tell us what you love most about Christmas!

For an extra chance to win, post about this on your blog or add it to your sidebar!

And if you would like even more chances to win, just mention this giveaway and/or tweet about it! 

{Please make sure to leave a comment for each thing you do!}

You do not have to have a blog to join in on this, but please do leave a way for us to contact you should you win! :)

Contest ends: midnight PST, on Sunday, October 30th, and we will announce the winners that day!
 I hope you each have a beautiful Monday!

I love this Christmas holiday season too! I would have to say my most favorite thing would be the memories :) Reminiscing about the years gone by, and making new memories this year. Whether its baking, shopping, or decorating the tree there are always some many stories to share and new funny things that happen that will be remembered the next year. This year my husband and I are so so SO excited because our first son, our new baby boy will be here to celebrate and share the season :)

I love the lights and sounds of Christmas!! My favorite family traditon is making acake and singing happy birthday to Jesus. My kid have always known what Christmas is about and know the story behind santa, not the fairytale.

What a great giveaway, Jenni.

I love so many things about Christmas, but I guess focusing on my family and what Christ has done for us is the most important. It is a sweet time to think of Christmas' gone by and to make new memories. I also love the food! I love boiled custard and love that I can get all I want during the holiday season.

Blessings friend.

I'll admit it...I'm a Christmas "nut". I love everything about Christmas except traffic jams. :) I love the lights. I love the carols. I love the decorations. I love thinking of and making and giving presents. I love watching my kids fall asleep in Christmas Eve and wake up on Christmas morning. I love the food!!! Seriously...EVERYTHING!

And I start decorating right on November 1st. Ha!

Fun giveaway! One can never have too much Christmas inspiration.

Jenni, I finally have your new blog on my reader so I can read you everyday! I've been missing your sweet posts and updates. So excited.

What I love most about Christmas is the food. And the hymns. And getting Christmas cards from friends and family.

And Gooseberry Patch...

I love the magic it still holds over my kids! I love the lights on trees and houses. I especially love the 25 days of Christmas shows on TBS!!

Lisa said...

I love all the sparkling lights. Sitting in a darkened room with just the lights glowing on the tree with my family. Watching my kids excitement and remembering how excited my brother and i use to be on Christmas morning!!

I found you through Pinterest (Lavender water) and have fallen in love with your blog. Looking forward to future posts. Thanks!

Oh my goodness! I love Gooseberry Patch recipes, the magazine would be SO SO SO much fun!!!

My favorite Christmas memory each year is the random night that we lay the B's down for bed and then get cookies, milk and blankets loaded in the car and just before they nod off we go into their rooms and turn their lights on and invite them to go drive around and look at Christmas lights with us instead!!! They know its coming each year but never know when. The drive is always so wonderful because they are totally loving life as they stay up super "late" and eating cookies in the car with the whole family. We ewww and awww as we drive and laugh LOTS!!

I'm going to tweet this in another hour, a little early here still and also put it on my sidebar!!! Very fun!!! Crossing my fingers!
